Golden Tote Review – May 2014
The May Golden Tote showed up even sooner than I expected! (I always pay for upgraded shipping, and even with that I was surprised to get my tote today!)
If you aren’t familiar with Golden Tote, here’s a really quick intro: 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
First up, the two items I picked out:
Comfortably Chic Maxi – Value $50
This floral maxi is from the brand Love Stitch, and I love it! It’s the longest of the maxi dresses I received this month (I’m 5’7″ and can probably wear this with heels).
Now onto my second pick:
Classic Puella Maxi – Value $68
Eek – so sorry about the photo quality! (Golden Tote comes via UPS, which always delivers at the end of the day for us, so it’s a mad dash for me to take pictures without losing the light, and this was the last photo taken.)
I have a few of these maxis already, and I think the cut and draping is so flattering and comfortable for summer. The only issue is that the fabric is very sheer, so I’ll need to layer it over a slip, which makes the whole thing a little less comfortable!
Now time for my surprise items:
Priddy by Puella Dress – Value $50?
Any Priddy by Puella item you find in Golden Tote was made exclusively for the tote – I love that! This dress is super cute and comfortable, but I’m not sure the neckline/sleeve cut will look right on me. I may only wear this with a denim jacket!
Renee C Tunic – Value $40?
This tunic is more fitted at the bottom so you can have a defined waistline, and just like almost everything else from Golden Tote, it is super soft and comfortable!
Under Skies Tee – Value $35?
This top has a silk like fabric in the front, and semi-sheer t-shirt material in the back.
It’s loose but flattering, and I can’t wait to pair it with jeans!
Naked Zebra Dress – Value $60?
At first when I pulled this out of the bag it looked like this:
But I think it looks much better cinched than with a dropped waist! I love the sleeve detail too:
Verdict: I think this is one of my most successful Golden Totes yet! Lots of flattering and easy-to-wear summer pieces! Did you get your Golden Tote yet? What do you think of the pieces? (I’ll have my review of my second tote up soon – I’ll wait for quality lighting though!)
