Golden Tote $149 Tote Review – March 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). 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.
As far as returns go, you can easily return your entire tote for a full refund. However, you can also return individual items, but any items you keep revert to their boutique price and you get charged the new total.

Puella Swing into Spring Dress in Floral Multi – value: $78
(96% rayon, 4% spandex; hand wash cold, lay flat to dry)
I knew I’d be getting this dress as soon as I saw the March spoilers. I’m obsessed with Puella Swing Dresses, and I love the floral print. I’m a little unsure as to whether or not the colors look good with my complexion, though, and I don’t know why. What do you think?
Defined Waist Dress – value: $42
(fabric: 95% rayon, 5% spandex; contrast: 100% polyester, lining: 100% polyester; machine wash cold, tumble dry low and remove promptly)
I absolutely love this dress. I can’t wait to pair this with some strappy black wedges! When I first saw this in the March spoilers, I thought it was a skirt and thought “oh, but I don’t have a top like that to pair it with.” I was thrilled when I realized it’s actually a dress. It’s like a whole ensemble already put together.
Le Lis Surprise Tank – value: $35?
(Self: 48.2% Cotton, 48.1% rayon, 3.7% spandex; contrast: 100% polyester; hand wash cold, hang or line dry)
This tank is so pretty! I love the pretty blush color and of course the beautiful floral back. Again, I wish I didn’t need to wear a cami underneath, but as you can see, the front is a little see-through.
Gili Striped Midi Dress – value: $65?
(Self: 96% polyester, 4% spandex; lining: 100% polyester; hand wash cold, hang or line dry)
This dress is great! I normally feel like midi dresses make me look short, but I actually feel the opposite about this one. I was nervous about my bra/underwear situation because the large white stripes are right on my chest and hips, but when I think about it, it’s actually flattering. The white makes my chest and hips look a wider in comparison to the black band at my waist making it look smaller.
Teenplo Striped Wrap Top – value: $25?
(100% rayon; hand was cold, hang dry)
Pardon the fact that the little stripe on my left arm came unbuckled. I love the stripes and pattern of this top! However, I think the design feels a little too scrub-y to me. I’ll probably swap this.
Gilli Navy Cold Shoulder Dress – value: $50?
(95% rayon, 5% spandex; hand wash cold, hang or lay flat to dry)
I really like this dress, too! Normally tops like this can be billowy or weird shapes on me, but I feel like this one actually looks pretty good! On top of that, it’s really comfortable and easy to wear. The cold shoulder detail is really interesting as well.
Verdict: I love my March $149 Golden Tote! I think everything is great, almost all of it is completely my style, and I’m happy with how well everything they send me always fits pretty well.
