  1. I just got two horrible october totes. I got stuff that is so small that my arms won’t fit in the sleeves, acrylic crap and stuff that is so big it had to have come from the plus size department . I got a dress so tiny and ugly I decided to say so . You will definitely be surprised if you order one. And if you think your stuff will look like anyone who has a blog – think again. What made me the most mad thou was the flower dress in the October reviews. I wrote flower anything. Big floral, tiny floral, bitty
    Floral. Did I get floral anything ? Not on your life . The review made me mad because she got a FLORAL dress and she specifically did not want anythign floral.
    I quit too.
    Might have been good is what I think.
    The stuff I got is worse than the worst stuff at Ross,
    And that is just about as bad as it can get.
    Believe me – it won’t fit
    And I didn’t get what I ordered either.

  2. There is a reveal group on Facebook called box reveals. Renee started it. The Relish reveals are there. I got one and I loved it so much I ordered another one.

    • I don’t have FB, but I Googled ‘relish subscription clothes’ and found it. I’m a size 14, so GT almost never fits. Relish Clothing has something called ‘Curvy Plus’ soon to be revealed! I’m so excited! Us bigger girls love clothes as much as any women! There’s also an accessories box coming soon. I’m going to bookmark their page and keep my eyes peeled. Thanks Stacy for introducing me to them, but I’m sorry it’s because of such a GT disaster.

      • Tacie – I google it too and read a few reviews. This looks interesting to me.

  3. I like Relish because, from what I have seen, they send the same brands as GT,s “chosen items” – which seem to be higher quality than their surprises lately. They also send a lot of items and they are nice,quality items. Their customer service is also so much better. Could all of that change? Sure – but I hope not.
    Golden Tote, in my opinion only, seems to have gotten a lot of customers really quickly and they are sending cheaper and cheaper surprise items to fill the need. They also carry surprises over from month to month now so I have seen so many people get the same surprise they got the previous month. GT seems to treat their customers as disposable and they don’t care. And you better not post s single negative comment on the trading page or they will delete it,and you too.
    I was also one of the many that have gotten booted off the trading page board – despite having spent thousands of dollars over more than a year on their totes. They sent me a clearly defective shirt and refused to fix it and flat out lied to me about the reason. I said I would never buy another tote and I didn’t. But I still liked to buy/sell and trade on the trading board, and I was always hoping GT would make it right with me and I could buy totes again. Instead they banned me from the page and the business page. Then they posted a thread about it (when several members got upset about me getting banned l) and they let their members openly attack me and post negative comments about me and my character (people I have never had a single conversation with too mind you). I sent them an email asking them to take the thread down and post the real reason I was banned – which I would like to know too) and they ignored me.
    I’m glad theirs competition. Maybe GT will step up their game or just go away. They used to be great.

    • Oh that’s too bad. And thanks- I wondered what happened to you and was too lazy to scour the posts for the why.

    • Well that answers that! I recall seeing that thread and always wondered if they had the decency to reach out to you personally. As a biannual tote purchaser since end of 2013, I’m sadly not surprised by their behavior (I mostly lurk and buy from the members). It seems if you’re not permanently lodged up GT’s a$$, then you’re just too opinionated.

    • Wow!! I can’t believe that happened! Like you, I’ve spent thousands of dollars on totes in the last year and a half but I took a break from GT in April or May (can’t remember) because I was A. Tired of the website b*llsh*t. B. Received the wrong chosen item and the wrong sizes in surprise items during my last tote order and it was never fixed (because apparently dropping $300 on multiple totes means nothing to them) and C. Their surprises and the quality has become so shoddy in the last five months or so (probably due to the growth in their customer base).

      I remember seeing your tote reveals on the trading site, Stacey – you always struck me as one of GT’s biggest advocates. It disappoints me to know that rather than value a loyal customer they would dismiss your concerns and kick you to the curb. That type of “customer service” really turns me off from wanting to order from them in the future 🙁

  4. I don’t like these spoilers – which is good for me. As for the junior sizing issue, I would have to agree. I wish they would just label them as junior sizes and adjust accordingly. It cannot be that hard to do. Its extremely poor customer service to give people clothing they know will not likely fit, especially now since they have the sizing. I have been fairly lucky not to get too many junior sized clothing – I have a sister I can give them too because I cannot sell these junior items on the boards, even though I have tried. Its because no one knows how it will fit. A junior large is more often than not a small medium – but a person who is a small medium doesn’t want to wear an item of clothing labeled a woman’s large. So I think they should just label it as a medium or small or a junior’s large.

    I wasn’t happy about the women who got kicked out – it seems really counterintuitive.

    As for quality, its a hit or miss. I get mostly decent quality, but I will get some messed up stuff, which in the past they have taken care of quickly. I haven’t had an issue in some time, so now I am worried based on the stories that other ladies have had.

  5. I have quit golden tote altogether because of the horrible, unfriendly, volatile environment that the moderators on the golden tote trading board create. I myself, like many others, was unjustly removed from the group for having an opinion that the mods did not like. Then, to give an excuse for removing me, they said its because they think Im misrepresenting myself. WTF?? If a place has horrible customer service, which they do, I will not shop there and why buy a tote of surprise items when you have no way to exchange/sell them?

    • WTF?! That’s so disappointing. The only logical thing I could get from that is with sizing…like saying you’re a different size than you are? Which makes no sense since the whole point of the group is trying to trade for items in your size. Or maybe they meant misbehaving…but still what is this kindergarten? I’ve had a lot of good experiences with the trading group but it seems like every time someone says something critical negative they “disappear.”

      Lately it seems like they’re been coming down on people who sell/trade on the main page and not the FSOT threads…ditto with people who ask sizing questions not on the dedicated threads, which they’ve only created once. Anyway it all seems rather petty to me…like that’s a reason to be banned? People honestly asking and answering sizing questions in the trading group definitely boosts their sales…

  6. Golden Tote quality and customer service has gone to pot. The “chosen items” are still cute, but the surprise items are generally bland and boring and cheaply made. They are also sending a lot of Junior sized clothing to grown women and not informing them. That’s not cool.

    Liz, there is a new clothing mystery box that just started – and the first reveals have been absolutely amazing. You should give it a try. It’s called Relish clothing ( They have XS through xl clothing and the mystery boxes come in small, medium and large sized boxes. Lots of clothing similar to GT’s chosens. Same brands. Can you give it a try and review it for us please? Based on the ten or so reveals I’ve seen on different FB groups, I have two boxes coming my way.
    It looks like a great new surprise clothing box and I would love to see you review it – they send maxi dresses!
    I’m not receiving anything from Relish for this post – I just am happy to see some new clothing surprise boxes, and if they keep sending the same amazing stuff I’ve seen so far, I really want them to succeed so I can keep buying!
    There is no referral reward – maybe that will come later….but please anyone who tries it let them know you heard about it from me please (until Liz does a real review and posts it – then she deserves any credit of course).
    I’m going to post a review on my little blog once I get my boxes. – but again, would love to see a review from you because we have very different clothing tastes and I would love to see if they personally style for different tastes. Thanks Liz!

    • Can you let me know which groups you saw reviews of this on? I can’t find any

    • Why would you like relish if they have the same brands as gt ? Just curious do they have better clothes from those brands ?

    • I wish they would send me junior size. I am 37 but very small and all of GT clothes are too big. I can usually wear junior size small without it being too big. I even put on my style profile that I am 5’2 and about 8lbs so please send stuff that runs small. Didn’t work. Oh well. My credit card thanks them lol

      • Oops that should be 5’2 and 87lbs lol dumb auto correct

    • Oh man, their clothes are so cute (and I spy a few GT chosen items including one I got last month)! Plus I love that it’s a somewhat local company to me. I might have to get a mystery box from them as well!

    • Yea can you post a link to the reveals. I’d love to see what else they are sending out!

    • Thanks! Celicia will be reviewing Relish soon! 🙂 I’m curious to see what everyone gets and will definitely check out your review too!

  7. I am not loving these spoilers. I will have to see more before I decide whether or not to get a tote next month.

  8. just so you know , you wrote JUNE spoilers , and the JUNE tote launches on the 6th not july lol 🙂

  9. Not sure I love anything yet… I may do a surprise tote in July depending on full spoilers!

  10. I have the opposite problem. All their stuff is too big for me. Even the smallest size just hangs off my body. Plus size and xxs would be great!

  11. I really wish they would come out with a plus-size tote…. I love these previews so much!! I love their Maxi dresses and your reviews always leave me wishing I could fit into one of their outfits!!! Lol…
