Golden Tote $149 Clothing Tote Review – June 2017
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.
However, this is a review of the Surprise tote, which is $89 and they send you 3 surprise items styled based on your 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.
Every month they design a new tote, too! I love this bright design for Summer!

Golden Tote also included an info card thanking me for my purchase and walking me through the return process if there’s anything I don’t love.
My box also included an info sheet with a packing list of all my items.
Purple Rain Colorful Print Dress – Value $40
I requested this in my style profile from surprise item “spoilers” the GT team released on their Facebook community page. I think it’s great for summer! The higher waistline works well for my baby bump and the material is slinky, cool, and stretchy.
Purple Rain Floral Dress – Value $40
I love the idea of this dress, but it ended up just being really short on me. If it were longer, I think I’d love it, but I just don’t think I’ll reach for it while I need to be chasing a toddler around. It’d work if I had occasions to wear it for, but I just don’t think I do. I love the print, though!
Final Touch Maxi Dress – Value $40
Well, I requested pregnancy-friendly items and this maxi definitely works. I love this color, too. It’s pretty plain so it’ll need some dressing up, though – a statement necklace and/or a belt, bangles, etc. This is something I can get lots of wear out of and that is versatile.
Verdict: I bought a surprise tote this month because I wasn’t in love with much from the collection they released this month. I liked it alright, but I’m considering returning/exchanging the dress that’s too short – my experience with Golden Tote’s customer service has always been fantastic and they’ve helped make any issue I’ve had right, so I’m confident they’ll help me well. As far as value goes, I received $120 in items for $89, but you can also just look at it as $40/piece. The surprise totes may be a little riskier than the Mini or Golden totes because you don’t get to choose any of your items. As I said before, though, GT’s customer service has always made sure that I end up with no unresolved issues or dissatisfaction, so I’m not really worried.
