Golden Tote Review – April 2014 Round 2!
Golden Tote is one of my favorite boxes to get – so much so that I bought two this month! Every month you get to pick out 1-2 pieces, and they surprise you with the rest. (Check out my review of my other April Golden Tote).
FYI – This is not a typical subscription, each month they release a new collection and you can decide whether or not you want to buy it.
The Box: Golden Tote
The Cost: $49 or $149 (This review is of the $149 box)
The Products: Clothing items you pick plus surprises from Golden Tote!
Ships to: Everywhere! Shipping to the continental US $7.95. AK HI $15 and international is $25
Woo Fringe Maxi Dress – Value $70
This was one of the two items I picked out.
I love the fringe detail on the front and back of this dress. It also let me justify buying another black maxi!
Abstract Maxi Dress in Rust – Value $70
This maxi came in two colors, and I had to have both! (In my other tote I got the mint version). This shade is more of a coral than rust, and I love it!
Priddy by Puella Layered Dress – Value $60?
This dress was made exclusively for Golden Tote, and I love the layered look. Like most Priddy by Puella items, it looks even better belted! (FYI – be careful washing this dress, I put it through the cold cycle and hung it to try, but the red fabric shrunk more than the navy striped fabric, so I lost the fun layered look).
I think you could wear this in reverse for two different looks?
Patterned Tunic – Value $50?
The fabric of this blouse is really soft, but the cut and the print just aren’t working for my body type – it looks way too boxy on me.
Floral Blouse – Value $40?
So this tote wasn’t as successful as my other tote. This floral top is a little too bold for me.
In Clover White Blouse – Value $45?
Fortunately this item was a win for me. It’s delicate without being too precious, and the cut is surprisingly flattering.
Verdict: With my other tote all surprise items were a win, but with this one I’m 2 out of 4. There’s always an element of surprise/risk to these totes, but I’m happy with the value even with only loving 4 of the items. And I’ll share or swap the two tops that aren’t for me!
