November was another month of minimal shopping! Just the one dress at Loft, and I used my birthday gift card, so zero budget dollars were spent. But I will still link up with Franish!
Dress: Loft (exact - on sale and extra 40% off!)
If you are wondering why the Letote subscription cost isn't there, it's because I went on hold for a month. I've received 2 more totes since my review of the first month. So it seemed like a good time for another assessment of things. Here's what I received in my 4th and 5th totes:
Tote #4 had 7 items in it instead of 5. I'm not entirely sure why, except that they were doing it to make up for the couple of issues I had with Tote #3. I pretty much liked everything in this tote.
The green lace tee was so cute that I wore it twice! The dress had weird sleeves, but nothing a jacket couldn't help. I really liked the green skirt. The top was way too tight, so I didn't wear it. The jewelry was pretty, but I really have no use for jewelry at this point. I confessed in this post that I put the necklace and bracelet on just for pictures. I didn't end up wearing the turquoise necklace at all.
Tote #5 also had an extra item. Again, I have no idea why, but I'm not complaining!
The dress was really cute and actually fit properly (decent length, not too tight or low cut), but I didn't have any events to wear it for, and I didn't want to wait. The dog sweater was fun to wear once. The striped skirt was super long, so I hiked it up a bit, but otherwise really liked it. And you may recognize that shirt from tote #4. I liked the style, so requested the next size up. It was still a little tight in the chest. I guess it's just not designed for my body type. I picked out really small jewelry thinking I might make these necklaces work, but still didn't wear them. But I really like both of them, so might request again.
So where does that leave me? I will have probably 1 more tote left in my month when I got off hold. I think I would really love Letote if I was still working, but as I've said before, I just don't have a reason to get dressed up very often, and I have enough clothes in my closet for those days. I really think I should cancel, but something is giving me pause. I guess it's just fun and convenient to get a box of clothes every so often! But even so, I think it's kind of ridiculous for me at this point in my life. I would totally recommend it to anyone who isn't a stay-at-home mom. And they even have maternity now, which I would have really loved a year ago!
If you are interested in trying it, you can get $25 off your first month with this code. And you can even give it as a gift, if you have someone you think might like it. I'll refrain from making an "out of the box" gift idea comment. Oh wait, I just did.
