Golden Tote $149 Tote Review – October 2015
Golden Tote is one of my favorite monthly packages – I think a good deal of my wardrobe is now 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). For the $149 tote, you pick 2 items, and get 3-4 more surprise items based on your style profile.
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.

Golden Tote also includes some styling suggestion cards for the items you pick.
First, my two item picks:
Hooded Moto Jacket by Thread and Supply – Value $105
(100% Polyester; Dry Clean Only)
(Due to the value of this item, customers who selected it as one of their items will receive a 5 item tote).
I am SO glad I went with this jacket – it is my new favorite clothing item!
I got a similar Thread and Supply Moto jacket from Golden Tote last year, and I was a little worried they would be too similar, but this one has an inner zipper hoodie lining:
I didn’t think it would be that amazing, but I just love the look of wearing the jacket open while still keeping it fitted with the inner zipper. The hood is great too:
And my husband Eric told me I look like “a badass” in this jacket, and I am taking that as very high praise!
Weave Your Way Sweater by Skies are Blue – Value $44
(100% Cotton, Hand wash cold, lay flat to dry)
Yay for a 100% cotton item from Golden Tote! I picked this piece since I like to wear a lot of black, and the arm design of this sweater added something different:
Now onto my surprise items:
Le Lis Tunic – Value $35?
(61.9% Polyester, 33.2% Rayon, 4.9% Spandex; Hand wash cold, hang or line dry)
This fabric is the softest material ever! And this tunic just looks like the perfect cozy fall top to me!
Vida Clothing Floral Dress – Value $45?
(100% Polyester; Hand wash cold, line dry)
I like the feel of this fabric (it is almost neoprene-like). The dress is completely fitted too. I normally don’t wear floral prints, but I really like the cut and fit of this one.
And the back has a hidden zipper:
Bo Bell Legging Pant – Value $30?
These leggings are the type of item I wouldn’t have bought for myself if I saw them online, but now I’m wearing them as I write this review! I’ll probably use them just for around-the-house lounging, but they are comfortable and flattering, so I’m happy!
Verdict: This is one of my favorite Golden Totes just from the moto jacket alone! And I would pay $105 for that jacket, so $44 for the other 4 items is quite the deal! (I actually was planning on getting a second tote this month to buy a backup jacket, but sadly they are out of stock on the jacket except for size small).
What did you pick from Golden Tote this month? If you got the moto jacket, are you in love with it too?
