Golden Tote Review – $149 Tote – October 2014
This month I bought two Golden Totes – a $149 tote, and a $49 tote. This review is of the $149 tote. (The $49 tote review will be coming soon!)
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.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

For October, Golden Tote included this Keep A Breast Foundation bracelet, and the tote itself also promotes awareness of the foundation.
Vegan Leather Moto Jacket by Thread & Supply – Value $75
This is one of my two picks for the $149 tote. I wasn’t positive I was going to pick this item at first, but as soon as I saw it was from Thread & Supply I knew I’d love it. I’ve received a few items from their line in previous totes, and they fit me really well and the quality is excellent.
The quality is impressive with this jacket. I love it! I went with the large even though I sometimes size down in outerwear because I was familiar with the brand, and I’m glad I did. This jacket fits snug but perfect. (And it’s still surprisingly available in all sizes if you’re interested!) If you are debating between sizes I would recommend going up a size.
(Jacket 100% Polyurethane, Lining 100% Polyester).
Puella Le Boheme Maxi in Black – Value $88
I tried this maxi out in the chevron print last month, and I absolutely fell in love with how easy it is to wear! Unfortunately I was shipped a medium instead of a large so I’m hoping I can still get the large since the medium is looking a little too short for me.
(95% Rayon, 5% Spandex).
Le Lis Sweater – Value $45?
At first I thought this was going to be an oversized top, but it actually fits great.
And I love the button detail on one side. It’s such a cozy looking piece!
(92.5% Polyester, 7.5% Rayon).
Cut + Sew by Golden Tote Open Cardigan – Value $45?
This is from Golden Tote’s own line, so it’s only available through the tote. I love this print and the colors of this wrap. If I could change anything about it I’d make it a few inches longer, but really I have no complaints.
(95% Rayon, 5% Spandex)
Priddy by Puella Wrap Dress – Value $75?
Another print I love! And I’m so happy to see that the Priddy by Puella item this month is a dress! It’s about an inch too long on me and an inch too wide in the waist, but I’ve had luck shrinking Priddy by Puella dresses in the laundry, so I think it will end up being perfect!
(95% Polyester, 5% Spandex)
Infinity Knit Scarf – Value $20
Since I picked out the vegan moto jacket, I should have received only 5 items total in this tote, so I’m thinking this scarf probably should have been in my $49 tote. (I only received two items in that tote). (Both totes shipped together). Or they included a bonus accessory for anyone who got a 5-item tote – I’m not sure. Either way I love this scarf!
Verdict: Assuming I can get my Puella maxi in large, I think this will be my most successful Golden Tote yet. I love every single item and all of my surprise items are hits. If you’ve been debating about getting this tote and the vegan moto jacket – I highly recommend going for the jacket – it is so well constructed!
