  1. What is Le Tote and how much is the monthly subscription price?
    Reply

    Le Tote allows you to choose three clothing pieces and two accessories at a time, which you can then try on and wear before deciding which pieces you'd like to keep and purchase and which you'd like to return. If you love something, simply don't return it and you'll be automatically charged the purchase price and the item is yours to keep. Le Tote does not limit the number of "totes" you can receive each month, so you never have to wait a whole month to try new stuff. Once you return or purchase your items, you're free to choose another tote! A Le Tote subscription costs $49 per month.

  3. How does Stitch Fix work and how much is the monthly subscription?
    Reply

    Stitch Fix is a little different than other boxes in that you only pay a $20 "styling fee" per box, and that fee is credited toward any item in your box that you choose to purchase. A personal stylist will choose five pieces per box to send you, based on your personal preferences. Once you receive your box, you have three days to try on the items and decide what you want to keep/purchase and what you want to return. Stitch Fix also allows you to give your personal stylist feedback on the items sent to you, so your boxes can become even more personalized over time. There is no monthly subscription fee for Stitch Fix, just the $20 styling fee per box.

  4. How does Wantable work and what is the monthly subscription fee?
    Reply

    Wantable offers two different options - Collection or Edit. Collection allows you to choose between three categories - makeup, accessories or intimates - and you'll receive three to five items from the category you choose. You can keep the items you want and send back whatever you don't. However, some items will only get you partial credit when you send them back, while others get you full credit. The Edit option allows you to choose between fitness or style, and you'll be charged a $20 styling fee that can be credited toward any item you decide to keep. Like Collection, you'll get five items from your category to try before you buy, and  you'll get full credit for any items you return. The Collection option starts at $40 per month, while Edit only requires the $20 styling fee per box.

  5. What makes Trunk Club different from other clothing subscription boxes?
    Reply

    Trunk Club is a Nordstrom company  and offers monthly boxes for both men and women. Trunk Club stylists hand pick items based on your preferences (you can even chat with your stylist personally) and you'll be sent a list of items chosen before anything is shipped, so you can customize your shipment. Once you receive the items, you have five days to try everything on and decide what to keep. A $25 styling fee is charged and is credited toward any items you choose to buy, and you're free to send the rest back. Trunks can be ordered as often as you like, and the $25 styling fee is waived for Nordstrom card holders.
