What are you thinking of the August Golden Tote options? I want a few of the dresses and the grey and black kimono wraps look like classic pieces I’ll wear a lot – this might be a two tote month for me!

  1. Hey Liz and MSA gals! Some advice please…if I want to purchase 2 totes this month, is it best to purchase at the same time or buy one at the beginning/one at the end of the month? Also, if I do purchase at the same time, do I need to specify “no duplicates” so that I don’t wind up with 2 of the same tote? Thanks for your input!

    • Hey! You were just reading my mind!! I am getting 2 also but the 2-3 dresses I really want are out of stock so I was wondering if I should get 1 now and wait awhile on the other?? This is my 1st too! So idk if they restock ever??

      Also I ordered a $49 at he end of July and they had a skirt on sale when I got it, as an add on, it was $15 last week and when I went to get an Aug tote it was $30 to add on. So made me think they discount some thing towards the end of the month???

      Anyone have some tips for Us new Tote Lovers???
      Megan- If you find out will you post here and let me know? I was worried about doubles too. 🙂 Much appreciated!

  2. I am not really too excited about these styles. I like the second shirt – the blue shirt with the scroll design and the chevron dress. So depending on the material of the blue shirt (it looks like the sleeves may run tight and it looks transparent – for some reason GT likes transparent clothing and tight arms), I don’t know how I feel about the rests. Which I agree with other commentators seem shapeless and tent like. I may get the blooming dress and the chevron dress in a single $149 tote.

  3. So I just ordered my 1st bag today. Went with the 49$ because were so clots to AUG and I LOVE SO MUCH OF WHATS POSTED ABOUVE!!

    I am super excited and want to be sure to get my picks 1st thing in AUGEST .

    Can anyone explain to me the way it works exactly?
    Like what time and what day do they open or start letting you pick each month??

    Also just because I got the $49 this time I can get the $149 in AUGEST right?

    Any suggestions would help!

  4. These styles aren’t wowing me. Too shapeless for me. I’m also beginning to get a little irritated that almost everything I get from GT is dry clean only. I’ll be skipping this month.

  5. Everything is so tent-y. I’m pretty disappointed with this month’s selections. April, May, and June were all great months for me, but July and now especially August are so…blah. Fingers crossed they stop pandering to shapeless clothing in the fall!

    • I guess some of the dresses had belts in the earlier pictures? I don’t remember the paisley dress looking like a tent before, but it sure does now. And some of the things look like pajamas to me (print pants and black-and-white shirt, as well as the last image).

  6. I love everything! I’m definitely going to get a tote next month! I just need to decide which two to pick…. so many great choices.

  7. A lot of the tops are really cute but they do seem just shapeless and comfy. I’ve never ordered from golden tote before because everything was sleeves and I don’t do sleeveless.

  8. Hi Liz,

    Does this Sub have a profile survey? I’ve been thinking of subbing but skeptical about items that might now fit properly. Do they except returns?

    I’m large chested, so certain tops and dresses won’t fit properly. So I’m wondering if they have a survey that pays attention to your height, weight and body type. I’d hate to have a collection of clothe I can’t wear up for swap.
    This sub sounds like a really great way to change up my wardrobe. I never get a chance to go to the mall since having my little ones, so this sub would be perfect!

    Thanks for your reviews Liz!!

    • There is a little profile survey when you buy your first tote, and you let them know your style preferences, and there’s a blank field where you can let them know specific preferences. For example, I wrote that I love maxi dresses, and that I don’t want tops that have a banded waist. Since I added that info I haven’t gotten any tops with banded waists, and I seem to always get a maxi dress in each tote as a surprise item. I think they really pay attention to your specifics. As far as returns go, it’s an all-or-nothing deal – you can keep the whole tote or return the whole tote. No single item returns. Hope that helps!

  9. I preferred last month’s spoilers but am still tempted by a few pieces. Unfortunately, It seems like so much of their line is high necklines and/or shapeless undefined waists – two styles that are completely unflattering. I’m trying to only purchase clothing I love and it seems likely that a lot wouldn’t work.

    • This. A lot of the spoilers this month look like incredibly comfy maternity wear for small-chested women. They’re not even flattering on the (probably incredibly thin, in shape) models.

      • Agreed. Some of the models are standing at an odd angle, probably because it’s the only way to make the clothes look flattering! And that paisley dress is just hideous!

        Do their collections look like this for all seasons? Everything just seems so summery. I would think for August they’d be looking for more of a fall collection.

        • I was expecting a few more fall/transitional pieces too – once we hit August I only buy summer items on clearance. Hopefully the September totes have a more fall weather focus!

  10. Do they ever offer legit midi dresses? Everything I’ve seen over the past year has been either a maxi or a mini (technically, if a dress is shorter than 36 inches it’s considered a mini). This is supposed to be the year of the midi anyway so it would be nice to see something along those lines for a change. The non-maxi dresses are way too short for a tall woman (like me) . The striped hi-low hem dress is the closest to a midi but the style doesn’t really transition well into fall (I wouldn’t wear a nautical look past summer and wouldn’t style a client in it either). This is by far the best looking collection I’ve seen to date, and one I would feel comfortable recommending to clients as well. Unfortunately, just not for me (yet, I hope it’s “yet” and someone at GT will listen to the requests for midi lengths). I’m 38 and even though I could probably get away with wearing a mini, they don’t translate well into my lifestyle or full time (non-stylist) career.

    • Yes, they do offer midi’s. Right now on their website is a Puella midi and the Summer Breeze dress is below the knee as well. 🙂
