Thank you everyone for the Birthday wishes and support from last Tuesdays post as I learned quite a bit about life and not holding on to bitterness. I appreciate your understanding and advice as well so thank you. I love the blogging community support and all that you all pour into me. You are my inspiration and I thank you.
Lately my e-mails have consisted of “Dear we love your blog” or “Dear Rachel, we would like to submit an editorial post blah blah” and oh get this one, BIG named yogurt company asked for a “free” blog press (I don’t even like their yogurt and how dare they think I am worth their time). To say the least blogging e-mails for free this or that is getting quite annoying. Of course you know what I am talking about. I get 5-10 e-mails like this a week but occasionally I do get an opportunity to try “free” stuff (even if for a month) and tell you about it.
Enter Le Tote. I received a free month of trying out Le Tote (a clothing subscription service that sends you designer clothing to wear as much as you want and that you get to pick out before its sent). Before my tote came I took some time to pick the styles I wanted and even the accessories and items I wanted included in my bag. The above striped tee, drape cardigan and Vince Camuto necklace were all included in my box along with other items that I will style next on the blog. The items in my box are discounted at a fair price however I don’t know if I will keep all of the items, maybe one but it sure is hard to decide which. Don’t you hate when that happens?
Anyway, I wore this outfit to my seven year old’s Girl Scout bridging ceremony and was able to get the hubby to snag some photo session time afterwards and I must say I am quite impressed. This is definitely my happiest photo session in awhile. Blue, white and stripes are always a happy combination don’t you think?
Now that you know a bit about where most of my outfit is coming from I hope that your day is awesome and blessed.
Have you tried Le Tote or some clothing subscription like it? What has been your experience?
*This is not a sponsored or product received to review post but I did want to mention how happy I am with my courtesy free month subscription from Le Tote.
