Le Tote April 2018: Tote 2 Review

leteo5

I was very excited to try everything in this tote! I mostly rented things for work, but we had a chocolate festival to attend, so I made sure to include a fun shirt for that. There were certainly some items that I loved more than others, but the main problem I ran into was the fit. I need to accept the fact that I am much bigger than I was before I popped out two babies! Despite this, I still managed to wear almost all of it out in public at least once.

AUGUST 1 EIGHT MOCK NECK WRAP DRESS

DRESSPROS: The style was perfect for work. It was modest enough, long enough and certainly professional. The color was simple so it went well with a lot of jewelry. The material was nice and thick so I didn’t feel like you could see through it.

CONS: I need to size up with this. It was so tight in the arms that I had a hard time lifting them. My biggest problem is the extra weight around my stomach and this dress did not hide it well. Others who have rented this dress noted the top was weird and the wrap fell weird. I see what they are saying, but I have a bigger bust and it helped fill the dress out a bit better and fix that problem, but it was a bit tight in that area too.

QUALITY: 4/5
STYLE: 4/5
FIT: 2/5
MATERIAL: 5/5
COMFORT: 3/5
RENT AGAIN? If I were to rent it again I would have to definitely size up. 

 

VINCE CAMUTO PLEATED OFF SHOULDER TOP

PROS: I LOVED this! I got this for a chocolate festival and received so many compliments on it. The color is gorgeous and the material is very comfortable. It hides my stomach well and was flattering on. This was one of my favorite items in the tote.

CONS: It was hard to find a good bra to go with it. My only strapless bra is thin and didn’t fit very well so that made it a bit more uncomfortable, but that’s more of an issue on my end. It’s so flowy that during a particularly strong wind gust it flew up and bit and I almost flashed the festival!! Oops! I wouldn’t wear this for an outside event during a windy day!

RENT AGAIN?  I would definitely rent this again!

 

AUGUST 1 EIGHT BELL SLEEVE DRESS

DRESS4

PROS: I love the style of this.

CONS: This was a big miss for me. I wasn’t able to wear this one out of the house. It was so so tight that I could barely get it zipped past my boobs. I had multiple layers of shapewear on and it still looked bad. It was very tight in the arms as well and much lower cut than I thought it would be. I had to put a cami under it to hide the girls. I was very disappointed because I love this dress so much.

QUALITY: 5/5
STYLE: 4/5
FIT: 1/5
MATERIAL: 4/5
COMFORT: 2/5
RENT AGAIN?  I want to rent this again in a bigger size. I think I will like this if it fits.

NOIR RUFFLE SHOULDER DRESS

PROS: I was afraid this was going to make me look really big. It seemed very small when I took it out of the box, but it stretches very well. It was very comfortable and looked cute on.

CONS: This had to have been an older item. I could tell it had been worn a few times before. The bottom hem rolled up very easily, you can even see it in the picture. It wasn’t as forgiving as I would have liked it to be, but I went in with low expectations on that, so I wouldn’t call it a complete miss.

QUALITY: 3/5
STYLE: 4/5
FIT: 3/5
MATERIAL: 4/5
COMFORT: 4/5
RENT AGAIN? Probably not, because it will probably get worse in quality each time it is worn and this seems to be on it’s last leg.

 

OCTAVIA BUBBLE SLEEVE DRESS

PROS: I loved this!! It was a great length and very flattering on me. The color was very pretty and this looked good on air. This item was another favorite from this tote!

CONS: This would have been 5’s across the board, but the seam on the middle of the sleeve for the bubble design felt like a falling bra strap. You know when your bra isn’t a perfect fit and it starts to slide down your arm and you have to keep pulling it up? Well it felt like that was happening, but it was the seam of the dress so I was feeling that sensation constantly.

RENT AGAIN? I would still rent this again!

AVA TRIPLE CIRCLE PENDANT

PROS: It was a great length and went with almost everything! It even went with the hair that was stuck to my boob for this picture!!

CONS: No cons here. I loved it.

FIT: 5/5

COMFORT: 5/5
RENT AGAIN? I will definitely be renting this again.

AVA SKINNY BOW BELT

PROS: It was in good condition and matched what I needed it for. It also fit well.

CONS: The bow didn’t really look like a “bow” when it was on. It was also smaller than I thought it would be.

QUALITY: 3/5
STYLE: 3/5
FIT: 5/5
MATERIAL: 5/5
COMFORT: 4/5
RENT AGAIN? I wouldn’t rent this again. It served it’s purpose and wasn’t anything special.

REBECCA MINKOFF FLOATING PEARLS CHOCKER

CHOCKER

PROS: This was one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. If it weren’t so expensive I would have bought it. I absolutely love it. It was beautiful and nice and delicate. I wore this at least 3 times.

CONS: None!

RENT AGAIN? I will definitely be renting this again.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

I was still very pleased with this tote. I wish I could have worn everything in it, but sometimes things just don’t fit. Luckily I still have the chance to rent that black dress again in a bigger size. For my next tote, I made sure to size up on almost everything. I would rather have something a bit big than way too small. I have really enjoyed my Le Tote experience so far. I still haven’t run into any issues and I am hoping it stays that way.

My next tote is customized and ready to go! I can’t wait to get it!
