Golden Tote $49 Tote Review – January 2016
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).
(They used a December tote for my $49 tote this month, just FYI.)
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 Subscription Box: Golden Tote
The Cost: $49 or $149 (This review is of the $49 tote)
The Products: Clothing items you pick plus surprises from Golden Tote!
Ships to: Everywhere! Shipping to the continental US is free on orders of $149 or more.
Delivered via: UPS
Each tote comes with a styling suggestion card for the item you picked that month.
Vida Clothing Pinstripe Button Down – value: $40
(65% cotton, 35% nylon; hand wash cold and hang/line dry)
I’m pleasantly surprised with this top! I ordered up a size for the sake of the bust fitting, and it works out. There’s darting in the back to make the silhouette flattering, too. (I’d style this top a little differently when I actually wear it out, by the way.)
Lumiere Sweater Tunic – value: $50?
(100% acrylic; machine wash cold flipped inside out, hang dry)
I like this a lot! I can see this with some leggings and being a nice comfy outfit.
Verdict: I think $25 for both these pieces is a good deal. I’m happy with my $49 tote this month, and I’m excited about the button-down especially!
What did you pick from Golden Tote this month? Any good surprise items?
