Golden Tote $49 Tote Review – March 2015
Golden Tote is one of my favorite monthly packages – and I think a good deal of my wardrobe is now from Golden Tote items!
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. (The surprise items are completely different from the pieces you pick from).
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).

Potter’s Pot Pop Print Dress – Value $35
Fabric content: self: 70% rayon, 26% polyester, 4% spandex, contrast: 100% polyester
Care instructions: Dry clean only, lay flat to dry, do not bleach, low iron if necessary
This was my pick for the $49 tote. (When you do the $49 tote, you get to pick one item, and they surprise you with 1-2 more items).
I had been eyeing this dress for a while (I believe it was available in February too). Since Golden Tote was offering free shipping on all tote orders in March, I decided to go for it in the $49 tote).
The front print fabric doesn’t have any stretch to it, but the fabric on the back is a soft and stretchy t-shirt like material.
I think this is such a fun and easy to wear summer shift dress. Sometimes shift dresses make me look really boxy, but this one actually drapes and is very flattering. I’ll need to be careful washing it though since the material composition is different on the front and back.
Now on to my surprise item:
Love Stitch Blouse – Value $40?
Fabric content: self: 47% rayon, 53% polyester
Care instructions: hand wash cold, lay flat to dry, do not bleach,
This blouse is slightly sheer, so I’ll have to layer it over a tank, or use it as a swimsuit coverup. The fabric is lightweight and has a silky feel to it – I think this is a perfect summer/vacation top.
Verdict: I paid $49 for this tote (with free shipping for March), so that works out to $24.50 a piece. I’m happy with that value per piece, and I lucked out since I like both pieces.
I also bought a $149 tote, so that review will be up soon! What did you pick from Golden Tote this month?
