October Golden Tote Selection Time!

Golden Tote has just released their October Tote options! If you aren’t familiar with Golden Tote, Here’s how it works:

1) Select your price option: $49 or $149

2) Pick out 1 item if you selected the $49 option, 2 items if you selected the $149 option.

3) Based on your size and style profile, Golden Tote will surprise you with the rest of the items in your tote! The $49 option will have 2-3 items total, with a value of up to $200, and the $149 option will have 6-7 items total, with a value of up to $600.

A look at some of the options this month:

October Golden Tote Selection Time!

After way too much internal debate, I decided to go with the $149 option and these two items:

October Golden Tote Selection Time!The Wrap Sweater (Retail Value $72), and the Pointelle Knit Dress (Retail Value $75)

Are you getting a Golden Tote this month? Which item or items did you pick?

  1. I ordered the black and white ombre skirt, the quilted jacket, and added on the color blocked dress. This is my first tote and I’m excited to see how this process goes as this seems fun, almost like gifting yourself a surprise! And we all need some surprises, right? I’m a little “hippy” so here’s hoping it all fits!

  2. Could you tell me if their clothing runs true to size? I wear a medium from most brands, but found Stitchfix’s clothing had to be a large. I totally want to try it but it’s hard to risk it. At least with Stitchfix you can send back what you dont like!

  3. OMG! I want the jacket and the black dress! I am planning to order from India and I will let you guys know how the shipping went! I hope I get it in time 🙂

  4. Returns are SUPER SLOW!!! It took over 6 weeks for them to finally straighten out my returns. My credit card company wasn’t very happy about the whole thing & I was 2 days away from fighting them through the credit card company (reversing charges). It took about a week for them to reply to my emails. Every single time!!! I finally got it worked out when I posted on their FB page. You have to pay return shipping & will not get the $7.95 original shipping back either. You have to return the entire tote. If you are happy with your tote, great. If you’re not, returns are a nightmare.

  5. Well this looks like a fun one that I haven’t tried…I love the sweater you picked!! I may have to try this one out sometime!

  6. Will the rest “surprise” items come from that same category of items? For example, if you picked the $149 tote, will the rest of the surprise items come from that same selection of clothing you picked the 2 items from?

    • I’ve gotten one $49 tote and several $149 totes, and I don’t think that any of my “surprise” items have ever been from the selection you originally choose from. They are always different clothes that are not even on the site! While some of them seem a little cheap-o, I’ve also gotten some nice sweaters, dresses, etc, from nicer brands like Puella. It’s a bit of a gamble, but it’s fun! I hope that helps! 🙂

      • P.S. Sometimes the stuff that I didn’t pick out ends up being of my favorites! But if you want something else in particular in the selection, I’m 99.5% sure you have to add it to your tote at additional cost, otherwise you won’t get it.

        • Thank you this helped a lot!

  7. Is it bad that I want to order the same 2 items as you!? hahaha 🙂
    I’ve been wanting to order Golden Tote for MONTHS now but never had the funds, I think I need to treat myself this month to it!!!
    Thanks again for the excellent reviews on it, I wouldn’t have been brave enough to order a $149 “subscription” without your excellent reviews 🙂
    I hope this month is great!! Can’t wait!! 🙂

  8. Motocycle jacket and the shadow stripe sweater dress… Hope they look good on…

  9. I was going to order the $49 tote. I loooved the Tomgirl Flannel Cardigan but I was waffling about what size to order. Asked on FB, got an answer, got distracted at work, and by the time I got a chance to go back to the page, the cardigan was sold out!! I don’t really like the other $49 options and I can’t afford a $149 tote this month, so I guess my wallet is getting a break this month! 😛

  10. This is my first Golden Tote! I went with the pencil skirt and the chunky ivory sweater. I’m so excited to see what the other items will be!

  11. I got that same sweater and the motorcycle jacket. Love their selection this month!

  12. I got that same sweater and the leopard military jacket! I loved the Vegan motorcycle jacket too! These selections got me pretty excited this morning about colder weather!! LOL

  13. Are you able to return items if they don’t fit? Do you have to pay shipping or get the money back if you do? I like that sweater too!

    • They offer returns but you have to return the entire tote – they don’t accept single item returns. And from what I read in the FAQ, I don’t think you get your shipping refunded either. (My shipping cost when I checked out was $7.95 if that’s helpful).
