Golden Tote $59 Mini Tote Review – July 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)
Also, they send your items in a differently designed tote every month! This month’s is a really cute ice cream design, but since I got 2 totes in one order they sent me one of last month’s pineapple design instead of giving me 2 ice cream totes. They do this to make sure there’s enough for every order to get at least 1 monthly tote.

Golden Tote has recently made updates to their return policy – now you can easily go into your order history and return individual items (it used to be an all-or-nothing deal). This month they’re also promoting their Facebook buy/sell/trade group, which is a great group for finding items you missed (whether or not you bought a tote), selling items that don’t work for you, and seeing a lot of reveals of the totes others get.
Personally, I think the Facebook group is a great idea and really helps reduce the amount of risk involved in getting surprise items/clothing online. You can also swap for any subscription box goodies on our swap site, too!
In each tote they toss in a styling card for your chosen items.
Time & Lace Tank – value: $40
This was my chosen item this month and I love it! From the model photos, I thought the material would be a stiffer fabric but it’s actually a nice soft knit. I’ve been living in tanks this summer, so I’m happy to add this to my wardrobe.
Teenplo Printed Swing Tunic – value: $40
This tunic is so comfortable! I also think it’s flattering. I love the color and think the print is cool. I wore it paired with shorts but it would also be really cute paired with skinnies or leggings.
Verdict: I’m happy with both my items in my July Mini Tote! I think both pieces are very wearable and versatile as far as styling goes. The value I got from this tote is $80 for $59 – I’m happy with that.
