Golden Tote Review – June 2014
I have been waiting for a while to get my Golden Tote this month – it turns out there was some mix up with my order that kept it from shipping. At first it looked like the red pants I had picked were out of stock, but I ended up receiving them, so I have no idea why my order didn’t ship sooner. Oh well – I’m just happy to have my tote in my hands! (And the new tote design is so cute!)
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. 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
Puella Chevron Midi Dress – Value $88
Normally I prefer maxi dresses over midi dresses, but I absolutely love this print and I’m really glad I went for it – the cut is so flattering.
The back bow detail is great too.
Weekender Pants in Red – Value $40
These pants were my other item choice for this month. (I’m really proud of myself for breaking out of my maxi-comfort zone!) I think these pants look really chic, and even though they are a loose pant they still seem flattering, especially since you can wear them somewhat high-waisted.
I was debating between red and blue with these pants, and ended up going with red because I thought on the blue print it would be more noticeable if the print on each leg didn’t match up – and I’m happy with my choice! I’ll be pairing these with a black tank or tee!
Priddy by Puella Slouchy Pant – Value $40?
If you were one of the first 1500 Golden Tote orders you received these pants in either black or a black and white print. I’m happy with the basic black look. I haven’t decided yet if these are the most flattering look for my body-type, but they are extremely comfortable!
Fantastic Fawn Dress – Value $42?
(Link goes to a similar dress from the same brand). I really like the color of this dress. The bottom is lined, but the top isn’t so I’ll need to wear a tank or layer underneath. It’s also a few inches longer than I would prefer so I’m going to put it through the laundry in attempts to shrink it!
ElisonElisonElison Top – Value $40?
Normally this style of top isn’t for me, but I really like that this top is semi-sheer, it softens the look and I can layer it over a white or black tank and pair it with jeans.
Porridge Top – Value $50?
They worked with Porridge in a previous Golden Tote, and I’m happy to see more Porridge items in Golden Totes! I love this top too. The color is vibrant and it’s a great summer top.
Verdict: I think the June Golden Tote was a complete success for me! (Usually I have one or two items that I’m not sure about/may swap). So of course I’m already regretting not ordering two totes this month! Hopefully the new surprise item totes ship soon though! What did you get in your Golden Tote this month?
