  1. I can’t shop the golden tote but I can shop the boutique this morning. Are the golden totes still available? Thanks.

    • I can’t shop yet either. 🙁 They did say they’d notify us when it’d be up and running so maybe they just haven’t opened that up yet? Here’s hoping!

      • No worries, ladies, the totes are still available. The owners opened up the site, but not the totes section yet. I would use this time to figure out your sizes and items that you would like 😉 (I noticed that some of the items may be running small based on the model’s measurements and the size she wore for the shoot as compared to the size guide).

  2. I’ve never tried Golden Tote, but I really want to. I was wondering, are the items that are chosen for you from the current collection, or do they include clothing from past months, too?

    • Usually the surprise items are pieces they specifically source for that month, so they should be new and on-season.

      Hope that helps! It’s one of my favorites 🙂

      • That sounds great! I love a lot of the pieces this month, so hopefully when the site is back up, I can join you ladies in trying this out!

        By the way, can I just say you are the reason I have become obsessed with subscription boxes! You’ve turned me on to Popsugar, Glossybox, Julep, and now this! My bank account may not be the happiest, but I sure am! 🙂

    • They choose from current (it seems). The sweaters are very nice! Size, proportion and nice quality on each thing I’ve seen.

  3. It’s still down. ):

    • It won’t be up today 🙁 They sent out an e-mail about two hours ago stating that.

  4. Of the 15 pieces shown so far, I love 5. Wondering if it would be better to go with a $49 (or is it $39 with the promised $10 off from FB) tote for my first go with Golden. Thoughts?

  5. This happened to me once before. By the time I did get in everything in my size was sold out. Here’s hoping they anticipated better in terms of inventory than they did in relation to server capacity! I gave myself a $200 new sub test budget this month and this will be a big chunk. I just need to remind myself that unless I see things I love (not like) it’s better to wait for a month that tickles my fancy a bit more. So far with the spoilers I’ve seen I’m still in the fence. For those who’ve bought before, are the dresses usually as short IRL as they appear on the models? I know not to judge length by how things look on tall models, but I’m over 5’9″ so it’s usually true to appearances for me.

    • I am also tall almost 5’10 and have a very long torso so the dresses are WAY to short on me – I’ve asked them about this twice – my friend who is 5’6 also says the dresses are very short on her so although super cute another 3 inches at least would go a long way!

      • Thanks for letting me know. That’s kind of a deal breaker for me unfortunately. If I rule out dresses, that pretty much leaves just shirts and sweaters/jackets. Given that I’m a bit busty I’m always leery of ordering tops sizes SML unless I can try them on first.

    • My daughter is 5’9″ and they are short on her. She wears leggings or tights and the dresses look really cute BUT I don’t think you could pull them off in a conservative office.

  6. They posted this on their Facebook now:

    “Hello Everyone! We apologize for the unfortunate events of today. We received more traffic to our site than our servers could handle and much more than we could have anticipated or tested for. Therefore, we have taken the site down to insure that nobody will miss out on quantities of items being sold out. We are working today to add more servers to that we can relaunch as soon as possible. We don’t know exactly when that will be but will make posts and send a mailer as soon as we know. We thank you for being such loyal customers. Please bear with us as we are a small company that is obviously growing faster that we anticipated. We will be giving everyone a $10 coupon to use this month once the site is live….DETAILS TO FOLLOW IN A MAILER AND FACEBOOK. Yours truly, Sarah & Sarah”

  7. It appears that they rescheduled the sale for tomorrow due to website problems 🙁

  8. The site is officially down now. They really need to load test the site to ensure they dont’ crash. I guess the load crashed the site.

    So sad; cool idea but if you have to fight the site then it’s not really something you want to repeat.

  9. The site is actually down now–the sale isn’t starting until tomorrow now 🙁

    • Thanks for letting me know. 🙁 I’ll update the post.

  10. Website keeps timing out! I am even using my PC here at work. It should be fast right? I guess there is a lot of traffic right down! =[

  11. I can’t get into the site either. I don’t have time to sit here all day:(

  12. Usually when my work computer doesn’t connect, at least my phone does. It’s been timing out all morning on both when I get to “select” screen, if not earlier.

  13. Even later in the month after their bag has been available for a while I still have issues with their site and speed. Incredibly frustrating. I guess that’s what beta testing is for.

  14. Been trying to get in for over 30 minutes. How frustrating! I sure hope what I want isn’t sold out. The options this month are some of the best I’ve seen.

    • It seems like everyone is having difficulty accessing the site, so I’m hoping that means nothing sells out!

  15. Yeah, that is kind of annoying. I have been trying to get on the site for the last 20 minutes. Some pieces are waaaaay cute!!!

  16. So mad 🙁 I cant event get through and I have to get to work. So disappointed

  17. this is why i will probably never sub to golden tote…every time they get us excited, about a new tote, the website stops working. ridiculous!

  18. Me too! Boo!

  19. I haven’t been able to get there at all. I guess too many of us set our alarms!

  20. I can’t even get on the website, I’ve been trying to 5 minutes. I guess it’s just too popular now, haha!

  21. I got one thing in my bag and now it just keeps timing out…argh!

    • Same for me 🙁

      • Not working for me either. I tried refreshing and just keep getting the dreaded 504.
