Golden Tote Review – July 2014
In Golden Tote miracle news, I ordered my July tote on Monday and it arrived today! (I always pay for their fastest expedited shipping option, but I’ve never had a tote ship this quickly!)
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
Day at Sea Striped Dress – Value $45
This is one of the two items I picked out for my tote. I love the red striped skirt (and it has pockets!) but the top is pretty sheer, I’ll definitely have to layer it. And I’m hoping I can shrink it a little in laundry too!
Fitted Tee Dress by Potter’s Pot – Value $44
This dress was my wild card item – something I normally wouldn’t buy but was curious about. (I figured if it was too short, I could still wear it over leggings in the fall). I’m happy to report that the tee has a lining so it isn’t nearly as sheer as I was expecting, and the black skirt is a thick quilted pattern). It’s probably a little too short for me to wear with bare legs, but it’s a great basic piece I think I’ll get a lot of use out of in the colder months!
Hourglass Lily Strapless Dress – Value $50
This dress is stunning – I love it! I have another Hourglass Lily dress, so I was pretty sure I would love this maxi. (I think the fabric in this dress is slightly thinner than my other Hourglass Lily dress, but it’s not see-through). (Instead of buying two totes this month, I added this dress to my tote at a discount).
FYI – Hourglass Lily maxis are on sale today for $35 each at HauteLook!
Now on to the surprise items:
This boatneck blouse is really cute, and it’s a little short for me, but I think it will look great with high-waisted skinny jeans.
(I thought the tag was cute too – I love Golden Tote exclusives!)
Miss Love Pocket Shirt – Value $35?
This is the one item in my tote that was a miss for me. It’s really wide and boxy, and just a look I can’t pull off.
Priddy by Puella Dress – Value $70?
I am in love with this dress! Sometimes Priddy dresses can end up looking like tents on me, but this one drapes beautifully and the fabric has just the right amount of stretch!
Plus I love an open-back detail that still lets me wear a normal bra! (FYI – Based on this Puella Tunic, I’m thinking this dress will also come in blue).
super b Maxi – Value $60?
Well, I love maxis, so this was an instant win! I love the detail on this dress too. The back is gorgeous:
Verdict: This Golden Tote was so great it’s making me want to buy another one! I love the Priddy item this month, and I think I’ll try to swap for the blue version if it exists too! What do you think of my surprise items?
