My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
FYI – orders for this tote are now closed but they do have a waitlist you can sign up for to be contacted in July if they have an availability. I’m assuming this will likely be due to any returns and exchanges they have.

Inside was a little thank you note from the Sarahs’, who are the designers of the Puella brand.
Puella Tie Back Top – value: $58
This top is made of a heavier material than I was expecting from the photos. I really like the style but I wish I had received any of the other three color versions (a coral stripe, a navy stripe, and a pattern similar to this one but with white, coral, teal, and navy stripes). It’s definitely comfortable, though, and it fits well. Unfortunately I just don’t know if I’ll reach for this top. I think I’ll try trading for different versions on our swap site or the official Golden Tote Buy/Sell/Trade Facebook group!
Puella Relaxed Lounge Pant – value: $78
These lounge pants are incredible. They are some of the softest material I have ever felt. The color options for these were either this navy or an oatmeal color, and I’m really happy I got the navy. Whoever packed my tote also sized up in the pants for me, which means she checked over my style profile to see my body shape/type! I’m glad she did because I’d rather have the pants fit a little looser and use the drawstring than the opposite. These have pockets, too! Now, on the models, these pants are made to be a cropped length. On me, I feel like they hit more “flood” length than cropped, and I’m not sure I like where the hem hits me. However these are crazy comfortable, so if I’m just lounging at home in these then I’m not sure I care!
Here’s the back of the top. I love the way the style is in the back. (Although I should have actually tied a bow in the tie. Sorry – I missed that when photographing.)
A-Line Ruffle Dress – value: $78
I didn’t care for this dress in the previews, but I am now actually obsessed with it! It’s a stretch jersey fabric and is a good length on my tall frame. The ruffle is more flattering than I thought it would be, too. This dress is super comfortable and I want to live in it all summer.
Here’s a shot of the back for you. I love the way the print lines up in the back and the v backline.
The Classic Maxi – value: $98
This maxi is magical. It is quite possibly the singularly most comfortable item in my wardrobe. It’s also very flattering (on a ton of different body types, from seeing lots of different people’s reveals in the Facebook group). The spaghetti straps are adjustable, too.
And here’s a shot of the back. So pretty!
Verdict: The Puella Gold Edition Tote value adds up to $312, which I’m happy with for a $175 purchase. Everything is so comfortable and definitely well-made. I think this is a great limited edition tote and I hope they release some more in the future!
