  1. After realizing I was going to have to hold off on a couple months of GT I thought that I would be sad seeing everyone’s totes….but honestly, these past few months have definitely not had anything I would ever be interested in wearing. So I guess that’s a good thing but still a bit bummed seeing as I was in love with the clothes for a 7 month period….then boom, items that are seriously just, eh. Now that I can afford to start back up on my GT purchases, the clothing options are forcing me to hold off 🙁

  2. Does anyone have experience returning a Golden Tote? Ive followed the instructions that came with the box (to write an email requesting information) but have received no response yet.

  3. I love this tote even more looking at the new pictures. Ill be working that day so Im hoping Ill be able to grab what I like.

  4. Liz, there are MANY more spoilers than those! Looks like there is going to be a lot of items to choose from. 🙂

    • Thanks for the heads up – I’ll update the post! 🙂

  5. I am still waiting for the arrival of my September tote. I ordered at launch (maybe 20 mins. after) and still nothing. No tracking, no email and no tote yet. They are getting here later and later each month.

    • Have you tried contacting them? You may need to use phone, e-mail, and/or Facebook, especially through the Trading Group page. I was under the impression that they were further along than that with shipping but could be wrong. I think they usually ship Fridays, so maybe see if you get a notice tomorrow?

      • I have called and emailed. No response yet. I am getting a bit frustrated with the shipping dates. 🙁

  6. Yay! I don’t like any of the spoilers! My wallet is thrilled; it’s mad at me for September’s GT. 🙂

  7. I am not loving any of the spoilers. I like the lace sweater, but not really digging the animal print or the country quilt jacket (but maybe it will grow on me). I have noticed that I am not usually enamored with the first photo spoilers because usually the poses are weird or the lighting odd (probably intentional) – later on I love the items.

    I did see something like a sweater with owls on the sleeves or something, and for some reason I like that sweater. But I don’t like the fox scarf plaid shirt thing.

  8. I like the spoilers. I may find myself setting up an account in the next few days.

  9. I love golden tote. My first order was missing my mystery item and they quickly sent out a replacement. Then the next one was when the site crashed and by the time it was fixed all my faves were gone. I did of course find something to buy though. I love stitch fix but I think golden tote is working its way into my heart.

  10. Do the clothes typically run true to size?

    • I’ve found that the sizes run true to size for Forever 21 sizes if that helps. They tend to send a lot of loose/baggy tops though which are more forgiving.

      • Thanks Liz! That helps.

  11. 🙁 I really hate being on the outside looking in. I could most likely wear an XL in that plaid hoodie shirt, but Golden Tote doesn’t make that size in any of their clothes. I am always looking at their catalog longingly, wishing. It makes me so sad. I wish there was a Golden Tote for us voluptuous women, like Splendid has Volupties. I just miss the mark for Golden Tote, I think. I have looked for a size chart from them & I cannot find one anywhere! Maybe someday they’ll have a plus size side. Til then, I’ll keep wishing.

    • Totally agree with you!! I wish so much that their clothes went up to an XL. 🙁

    • I emailed Golden Tote a few months back and asked them if they would consider adding XL. They said that they had no plans to add XL any time soon.

      • That is maddening! They could get so many more women as customers. I guess we don’t matter. Lol.

        I could wear the kimonos, been trying to swap for one for awhile now. But I can’t see joining when I have no idea whether or not the clothes will fit based on looseness. I wear a 14/16. I don’t think their large would fit me. What do you think, Liz?

        • I would guess that the looser fit items in a large would fit. You can get very specific in your style profile and only ask for “loose fitting tops” for example and see how that goes. I think they do a good job of following requests. I would say try the $49 tote first just so it’s less of an upfront investment, and if it doesn’t work you can always return it. Hope that helps? Sorry they don’t have a better range of sizes 🙁 So many subscriptions are missing out on SO many customers – it is crazy!

          • Golden Tote often buys wholesale from boutiques who rarely have XS and XL, sometimes not even L. They try to make items in house XXS running small or L running larger.

          • You can wear some of the items with that size, but you really have to pay attention to the material (100% rayon or cotton does not have much stretch to it at all) and often times the tops and top part of certain types of dresses will not accommodate substantial chests. I wear about a 12- 14 and most larges fit me, but I look for clothes that are roomy, stretchy (spandex etc.) – and you kind of have to gauge the clothes on the model some how. Also, if you are lucky and the description actually says runs small or something, it really means that and you should avoid it. I also pay attention to the GT FB Trading Group for items that come up for trade that end up fitting great on bigger ladies, like me. I have been mostly lucky.

            I do think GT should have more larges in stock and also consider the XL. They finally caved in a few months ago and started offering XS, so I think if we keep pushing for XL, they may cave as well. But I think they definitely need to start stocking more larges. They don’t usually run out of stock of the mediums (oddly enough) but do run out of larges and XS. Weird.

          • Thank you so much for your help, Liz, as always! The $49 set seems like a good try at least for a month. I may see how it goes! 🙂 <3

      • I am with you there! I’m plus size so there is no way I can wear any of those clothes, but I love the idea of Golden Tote and what they have to offer. I don’t know why I torture myself with these posts! I must say though, I LOVE that fox scarf. I hope they have it on their website for sale, I know that will fit! 😀

        • I agree, I also LOVE that scarf. If I can’t buy it outright, maybe someone will end up wanting to swap it! Fingers crossed!

        • Im 40DD and tried things out this month. All tops fit me, except the chiffon dress was waaaay too tight. So I thought it was strange that their sizing was varying so much.

          Unfortuantely, NONE of the items worked for me. It was my first GT box, and I was disappointed by the style on all three surprise items, and disappointed by the fit of the two I had wanted. One more try — but I think Id rather spend more money on StitchFix which has don an excellent job accomodating my larger boobs without offering tent-sized items!

  12. I think this would be my first tote, its my birthday month and from the spoilers I love everything 🙂 I can totally pamper myself and get the $149 as my birthday present 😀

  13. Is the scarf going to be an extra or can we choose it? I want it badly

  14. Definitely thinking of signing up for that cargo jacket!

  15. Liking the cargo jacket! Saw a couple other sneak peeks on the FB trading group that looked good, too!
