Golden Tote - November 2012 Review - Women's Monthly Clothing Subscription Boxes

I was beyond excited when my first Golden Tote box arrived in the mail!

Golden Tote - November 2012 Review - Women's Monthly Clothing Subscription Boxes

The Box: Gold Tote

The Cost: $49 (2-3 items at up to a $250 value) or $149 (5-7 items at up to a $600 value)

The Products: Women’s clothing and accessories. You pick 1-2 items and they surprise you with the rest!

FYI – I’m reviewing the $149 tote. This month’s theme is cozy essentials.

This is the November Tear Sheet that came with the tote. It definitely added to the box for me – I love these touches that make me feel like I have my own personal stylist!

Blue Ombre Infinity Scarf – Value estimated $45

This scarf is super soft and really versatile. It will get a ton of use!

Maroon Striped Maxi Dress – Value estimated $80

I love maxi dresses and have been looking for more fall styles – I was thrilled to spot this in the golden tote!

Aztec Sweater Cardigan – Value $98

This was one of the items I picked out and I love it! It drapes perfectly and the gold has just the right amount of shimmer. (You can see photos of it on a model at Golden Tote).

Color Blocked Striped Sweater – Value $72

Hooded Twill Jacket – Value $92

This jacket is somewhat lightweight, so it will be great for layering in the winter, or worn as-is in the spring or fall. (This was the second item I picked).

Lace Top – Value estimated $50

This top is sort of a sweatshirt material, so it’s very comfy, and the high-low cut and lace make it much more stylish than a sweatshirt!

Verdict: I am thrilled with this box. It really felt like I had my own personal stylist, and – the best part in my opinion – even on my best shopping day I could never score all these items for only $149!  FYI for sizing, I’m typically a size large at Forever 21 and went with size Large at Golden Tote and everything fit perfectly.

What do you think of Golden Tote? Will you sign up?

  1. I absolutely adore this and it is the first I have ever heard of it!!! I am not at all fashion savvy. I am the one that gives the card to my sister and sais, “I have a meeting for business, can you go find me something to wear?” The poor thing knows my sizes and I cannot tell you the last time I picked out my own clothes. I am so much more into skin care. I desperately need a Makeover and would be the BEST candidate ever. Keep in mind…I am in my early 40’s and wear the same size shoe I did as in the 6th grade. I am definately a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, but I would be open to wearing every single piece that you showed!! I just don’t know how to pick them out and put them together!!!

  2. I purchases the March 2013 Golden Tote for $49. The shipping was a bit pricey ($13.02). I read on the site they were/are trying to fix the shipping costs. I picked the Maxi dress and LOVE IT. The shirt/sweater I received has a peter pan collar and horizontal stripes(not usually my style), but it fits nicely. I am going to keep it… step out of my comfort zone. I think this is a good subscription, but you have to be very open.

  3. I love this box! Thank you I had no clue it existed! Do you happen to know of a coupon code?? That would be AMAZING!!

    • Try 10DELAY for ten dollars off – I hope it is still working!

  4. I got the smaller November tote and loved it. I decided to splurge and order the larger tote for December, and unfortunately have to send it back. Most things were cute, but none seemed to fit correctly. I was so bummed. 🙁 I am hoping when they update their website to where we can customize our profiles, etc. that I will get things that will work for me a little better. I love Golden Tote!

  5. I really like everything you got! Looks like good quality stuff. I want to sign up!

  6. Hey I chose the Hooded Twill Jacket as well, can you tell me what length it is? I m waaay to impaitent to wait to get my tote to start thinking of outfits lol

    • The jacket hits me at my hips – I can take measurements when I get home later today if you’d like – let me know 🙂

    • Hips is good, no need for measurements, sometimes its hard to tell with pictures lol I m excited to get mine and for the December sale lol

  7. Really nice tote! Any coupon codes available that you know of?

  8. I definitely want to start this after the holidays. I like that you can choose when you want it, since it is a bit pricey. But I love the sweaters they have!

  9. I didn’t buy it last month. I was waiting to see your review. I think I’ll be in for december! That scarf is pretty and looks like their picks would easily fit into anyone’s wardrobe.

  10. I love the tote! And you got A LOT of great stuff!

  11. Wow, I love your tote! I chose that jacket too and I really love it. I got the same maxi dress but in solid black. That lace sweater looks very nice.

    I was really impressed with Golden Tote and I’m definitely going to get December’s too. I saw on their facebook that they are coming up with a new quiz that will personalize it even more for February. Can’t wait!
