Golden Tote $49 Tote Review – December 2015
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).

Usually, each tote comes with a styling suggestion card for the item you picked that month, but this one didn’t come to me with one for some reason.
Back to Basics Blouse – value: $35?
(100% Polyester; Hand Wash Cold, Line Dry)
This was the item I chose for this tote. I love it! I don’t have a pretty, simple basic blouse like this so I’m glad to have one for layering or to pair with just about anything! It’s a little snug in the chest, with no stretch since it’s polyester, but it fits and I like it!
Miracle Mosaic Tile Sweater – value: $45?
(55% cotton, 35% nylon, 10% wool; Hand wash cold and reshape and lay flat to dry)
I love this sweater! It’s bold and colorful and I honestly find it to be really flattering. I actually got this top in my November $149 tote! I’m not thrilled they sent me a duplicate item, but I’m glad it was an item I really love. Also, this particular top looks just like my mom’s style and I was going to pass my original Mosaic Tile Sweater to her, but now I have an extra for a Christmas present!
Verdict: I’m happy with this month’s $49 tote. I normally would be disappointed to get a duplicate item, but considering my personal specific circumstances (that I love the item and was going to give it to my mom anyway, so now we both have one!), I really don’t mind. Plus, I love my chosen item and think it’ll be really versatile!
What did you pick from Golden Tote this month? Any good surprise items?
