Golden Tote $49 Tote Review – January 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

GOLDEN TOTE JANUARY 49 TOTE - box

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).

GOLDEN TOTE JANUARY 49 TOTE - packaging

(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.

GOLDEN TOTE JANUARY 49 TOTE - info

Each tote comes with a styling suggestion card for the item you picked that month.

GOLDEN TOTE JANUARY 49 TOTE - item 1

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.)

GOLDEN TOTE JANUARY 49 TOTE - item 2

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?

  1. The sweater fits you so well. I really like the artwork on the totes!

  2. So did they not send you a surprise item? I only saw the 2 items you picked. And do they give you a different tote bag each month? Looks like a nice tote bag.

    • Hi, Alicia! The description says you pick 1-2 items because it depends on the tote. If you get the $49 tote you pick one item (the one I picked was the pinstripe shirt) and they send you one more (I think sometimes 2, but not sure). The $149 tote you pick 2 items and get 5-6 more items. And yes, every month they send you a different patterned tote bag (though for some reason this tote bag was a left over December one).
