It’s time for another Golden Tote review! This month I splurged and purchased a large Tote for the first time!
Not familiar with Golden Tote? Golden Tote is similar to Stitch Fix but a little different. Golden Tote is a fashion service but you do not automatically receive a Tote each month. (And yes the items actually do arrive in a Tote!) Instead, Totes go on sale the first Monday of the month (the day has been different lately) on the Golden Tote website. You can choose between either a small Tote for $49 which contains 2-3 items (you pick 1 of the items yourself) or a large Tote for $149 which contains 5-6 items (you pick 2 of the items yourself).
Like Stitch Fix you fill out your style profile on Golden Tote and that style profile will help your stylist select the surprise items that they send in your Tote! Once you receive your Tote you can either keep everything or send everything back. There is no picking and choosing!
Golden Tote also has a boutique so you can purchase items separately as well and there is discounted pricing for adding items on to your Tote order. Oh one more thing! The clothing available for the Totes typically changes every month. And since there is a limited supply, getting a Tote with your preferred item(s) feels pretty similar to signing up for a Disney race. At least in my opinion!
Now let’s see what I got in my Tote!
Item #1: All-in-One Maxi Dress
This was one of my chosen items. I have been wanting a maxi for a little while now but I had been hesitant to get one because I am so short. Once I saw the All-in-One Maxi on the Golden Tote website, I figured it was time to finally get one. And I am so glad I did!
I love this dress. It is so soft and comfortable and I really don’t even care that it shows that my stomach is not as flat as I would like it to be. It is a tad long on me but I can still make it work with flip-flops or a pair of wedges.
Item#2: Covered in Diamonds Dress
This was my other chosen item and the main reason I picked it is because it was one of the only few options that came in extra small. That and I like dresses and fun prints.
The dress is lined which is great and it even has pockets! I love the back of the dress and that I can dress it up or dress it down. Despite all of the things I like about the dress, I am on the fence on how I feel about the dress on me. I feel like I don’t fill out the top enough and that it isn’t as figure flattering as I had thought it would be. What do you think? Is the dress a yay or a nay?
Item #3: Skies Are Blue Embroidered White Tank
Prior to receiving my Tote, I had seen some reveals of others Totes on the Golden Tote Facebook Trading Group and several people had received this tank….and I wanted it! So I was quite pleased that when I opened up my Tote and found this tank inside.
I love the embroidering on the tank and the lightness of the fabric. It is a bit sheer so if you are not comfortable with that you could always wear a cami underneath. I think it is a perfect tank for Summer!
Item #4: Sweet Claire V-Neck Elephant Tee
I wasn’t sure that to think of this shirt when I initially pulled it out of my Tote. I mean, it is long-sleeved and it is Summer. Okay, well almost Summer. I am also not typically a fan of animal print clothing although I know a lot of other Goldies are.
Once I put the shirt on, my doubts went away. It is so comfortable and the fabric is very light so it will be perfect for cooler days.
Item #5: Chris & Carol Printed Bodice Maxi Dress
And just like that I went from zero maxi dresses in my wardrobe to two! And I loved this maxi from the moment I saw it. Luckily I also love it on me too.
I think it is very figure flattering. I love the colors and the print. It is a bit long on me but that’s not a big deal to me and it is something I am used to. The only thing that I am disappointed about is that the pattern does not line up correctly in the back of the dress. That’s a bit of a bummer but I am keeping it anyways
Item #6: Kika Printed Mini Skirt – Palm Leaves
Doesn’t this skirt just scream Summer and fun?! It makes me want to take a trip to Florida but I can settle for Summer in Michigan if I have to. 😉
Item #7: Bracelet
Because Golden Tote had website issues on Tote day this month (yes, again) they included a surprise piece of jewelry in each Tote to make up for the issues. BUT I am happy to report that when they relaunched Tote day it went so smooth! It was the easiest time I have ever had ordering a Tote so let’s hope it stays that way!
In regards to the bracelet, I am very happy with it and I will get a lot of use out of it!
I am so glad that I decided to get a large Tote this month! I really liked everything that I got and I feel like the large Tote is a better value than the small Tote. I also liked being able pick two chosen items versus just one.
