  1. I am DYING to know if anyone has received their Mystery Tote and, if so, what’s in it. Please share!!!

    • Got my tote Monday. Kind of disappointing- even though everything was a size s, there was a huge variation in fit. I got a cute Puella swing top- so big it made me look like a hippo. My teenaged daughter tried it on too, with the same result. There was a cute green and white tank top, that was appropriate for my daughter (but not me- very strappy low back). Then, I got an adorable THML quilted black zippered pocket dress. Totally my style and totally didn’t fit- it was way too slim! The only keeper (for me) is a very cute peasant top (can’t get to my closet to look at brand). Both the dress and Puella are up for swap. The value is there, and I would have paid $60 for the top I’m keeping and the tank top in a store, but I am disappointed in the curation of the bags. I know they weren’t looking at individual profiles, but there is no way that top and that dress would have fit the same person. It looks like the dress always has run a size small- so I think they should have put M dresses in with the size small bag. Also, they said there was a Puella item created just for the bag- was that the swing top?

  2. I got a small bag yesterday! Just to complete my own MSA January madness! I’m at a full yr for fabletics, psmh, Oui please and julep. These are my new tries for the yr since I never had full on subs to any of these ones. So exciting! I see there are still XS and S mystery bags left on the GT site, btw. I can’t wait to get mine…I hope I love it all! Yay! Liz, I never coulda done it without u! : )

    • Let us know what you get 🙂

  3. Need help with sizing too! I’m torn if I should get the Small or Medium tote. I’m a Small in LOFT clothes and Medium in American Eagle/Aerie and Old Navy clothes. Advice would be very much appreciated!

    • Check the boutique items, and they typically give the model’s stats and size she’s wearing, and then maybe some additional measurements of the piece (ie. arm length for long sleeves). They may also give sizing info, and suggest you size up/down accordingly. I typically prefer a medium everywhere else and find that size fits me fine.

      • Thanks so much for the tips, Gina!

  4. How much is shipping?

    • $7.95 for regular UPS. They do offer expidited, but the time is still based on when they put your tote together. They will combine shipping. Mystery totes are a bit different in that they will only combine two. I think it might be to discourage people from getting a ton per order (I guess they sold out ridiculously fast last year)

      • Thank you. So like sixty-eight dollars. Eh. Definitely something to think about.

  5. Sizing help please! I’m right at size 8 medium for bust – should I size down (seems like a number of items have run large) or stay at a medium? I’m a medium at Anthropologie if that helps. Thanks!

    • I’d suggest going with medium. For reference I’m often a 4/6 for tops and I usually go with medium tops. They’re also easier to trade, normally, which would be an asset for the mystery bag.

      • Awesome. Thank you for your help Sue!

    • If you are a medium with Anthropologie, you should be good with a medium. They usually have model stats and ok sizing info to help you decide. I get the occasional item that runs small, but you can note in your comments to have them size up if it runs smaller.

      • Thank you Gina! I went ahead and ordered a Medium Mystery Tote. Its my first Golden Tote and I’m super excited.

  6. Only Small and X-Small left… 🙁

    • The larger sizes haven’t launched yet – only xs and s. Check back over the next couple of days to see larger sizes.

  7. Thanks, Liz! I just crossed my fingers and did it. I’m excited–this will be my first Golden Tote experience!! Here’s hoping it’s a good one. I love seeing what you get each month. This could be a dangerous thing…

    • Good luck!! 🙂 Let us know what you get!

  8. Hi Liz,

    Could you please assist me, please. What subscription box is listed as Goldy Box on your charge card? I can’t find it on the web.

    Thank you,
    Nance Rogers

    • Could it be GoldieBlox? The construction toy?

    • Goldiebox is boxycharm for me when it’s in the processing stage. Then it clears as boxycharm.
