Golden Tote Review – October 2014 – $49 Tote
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. For returns it’s an all-or-nothing deal. You can return the entire tote for a refund, but you can’t return individual pieces.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
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
Thread & Supply Hooded Plaid Button Down – Value $41
This was my pick for this tote. I’ve been really happy with the quality of Thread & Supply shirts in past totes, and I couldn’t pass up a hoodie-flannel! This is my go to holiday/cozy top! (This top is still available in all sizes).
Le Les Sweater – Value $50?
This sweater is semi-see through so it will need to be layered. It drapes in a very flattering way, and the back adds some interest to the look:
(50.1% Rayon, 47.1% Polyester, 2.8% Spandex)
Verdict: I’m very happy with both of my pieces and I’m glad I added the $49 tote to my order. (I could have just added the flannel top as an add-on for $35, but I would have gladly paid $15 for this Le Lis Sweater top, so this was a good deal for me. In general I think the $149 tote is a better value, but the $49 tote is still a win!
What do you think of the $49 Golden Tote surprise item?
