Golden Tote Review – October 2013 ($49 Tote)

Golden Tote Review - October 2013 ($49 Tote)

Since I’ve only reviewed $149 Golden Totes in the past, I justified buying two Golden Totes this month so that I could review both the $49 tote and the $149 tote. (Check out my review of the $149 October tote).

If you’re new to Golden Tote, every month they release a new Tote collection, and you get to pick one or two items and get surprised with the rest of the items.  I’ve always been impressed with the quality and value of these totes – I definitely recommend trying it out! (Golden Tote is a one time purchase each month – not a regular subscription).

This flannel top (photo from Golden Tote), is the main reason I had to get this $49 tote. I absolutely love the ruffle draping.

Tomgirl Flannel Cardigan – Value $48

Since this piece alone was $48, I decided it was definitely worth the $49 tote price. This shirt drapes just as beautifully as I hoped it would too – I love it!

(Golden tote also includes cards with styling advice).

Now on to the mystery item Golden Tote picked for me:

Potter’s Pot Full Swing Maxi Skirt – Valeu $64

I already have a black maxi skirt, but I do love the waist-band detail of this skirt, so I think it’s different enough to have two black maxi skirts in my closet! (I don’t think I’ll wear this until the summer though – I absolutely love maxis, but have never mastered the art of wearing maxis in cold weather).

Verdict: I paid $49 for this box plus $7.95 shipping and received over $100 worth of clothing. I like both of the pieces (LOVE the flannel), so I’m happy with the value and what I received. I will say though, it was much more exciting opening the $149 tote since there were 4 different surprise items!

What do you think of the $49 and $149 Golden Tote options?

If you are still interested in getting the $49 Golden Tote for October, these two clothing pick options are still available:
