Golden Tote Review – April 2014
Golden Tote is one of my favorite boxes to get – clothing or otherwise! Every month you get to pick out 1-2 pieces, and they surprise you with the rest. (I bought two of the $149 totes this month, so there will be another review posted soon!)
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
Abstract Dot Maxi Dress in Mint – Value $70
This was one of my two selections for this tote and I absolutely love it (which is a good thing considering I got the rust color in my other tote!)
It’s very well made and fits perfectly! I know I’ll be wearing this dress all summer!
Embroidered Denim Jacket – Value $65
This jacket was my other selection. I usually buy a size large in clothing, but I always debate between a medium and large in denim jackets since I wear them open and I never want the jacket to look too boxy on me. I ended up going with a medium in this jacket and I think it was the right choice.
The detail on this jacket is fantastic, and it’s from the same brand as the denim jacket from last month (Thread & Supply).
Woo Souvenir Edition Raglan Lace Top – Value $50?
I believe this item was made just for Golden Tote, so I’m guessing on the price. From the spoiler pics I had assumed that the entire top had some stretch to it (I don’t know why I thought this), but it turns on the sleeves have stretch, but the lace does not.
Golden Tote also added a bonus black cami for layering underneath this top!
Lumiere High-Low Floral Blouse – Value $50?
I love that this blouse has just a bit of a high low effect, and the cut is very flattering.
It drapes pretty low in the back though, so I think I’ll be layering it over that cami Golden Tote included!
Priddy by Puella – Value $65?
The designers behind Golden Tote are also the designers for the amazing brand Puella (one of my favorite Anthropolige brands), and they’ve made the Priddy by Puella line just for Golden Tote subscribers.
This top is super soft, and almost has a bit of a terry cloth feel on the inside. It’s a little wide/loose at the bottom, so I’ll need to wear this with skinny jeans to balance out the look!
Hourglass Lily Strapless Maxi Dress – Value $68
Yes – another maxi dress! (I’m pretty maxi obsessed, so getting one as a surprise item is a real treat for me). I love the pattern, and while I normally stay away from strapless dresses, I’m going to make this one work! (It’s a little on the long side – I’m 5’7″ and will need to wear heels with this dress).
Verdict: This Golden Tote was a complete win for me! The value is pretty close to $400, and definitely worth the $149 cost for me! Did you get your April Golden Tote yet? What was your favorite surprise item?
