Golden Tote $49 Tote Review – February 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


If you aren’t familiar with Golden Tote, here’s a really quick intro: Every month you get to pick out 1-2 pieces, and they surprise you with the rest. (The surprise items are completely different from the pieces you pick from).

Also, they send your items in a differently designed tote every month!

FYI – This is not a typical subscription, each month they release a new collection and you can decide whether or not you want to buy it. For returns it’s an all-or-nothing deal. You can return the entire tote for a refund, but you can’t return individual pieces.

GOLDEN TOTE 49 TOTE FEB 2016 - items 1

Feelin’ Foxy Sweater – value: $40

(55% cotton, 45% acrylic; Hand wash cold with like colors, do not bleach, do not twist, lay flat to dry)

This is such a cute sweater! I love the colorful stripes and foxes are super cute and trendy, too. I also really like that the fabric is soft and pretty thin for a sweater so it’ll be versatile for the rest of Winter/early chilly Spring.

Blush Noir Diamond Patterned Sweater – value: $40?

This is one of those sweaters that are big and really nice and comfy! The sleeves are a great, cozy length, too.

Verdict: I’m really happy with my $49 tote! Two great sweaters for basically $25 each is awesome.

What did you pick from Golden Tote this month? Any good surprise items?

  1. Hi Haley! You can return a partial box. If you choose to keep some of the items and return one or more you must pay the boutique price of any “chosen” items not returned and flat rate $35 for any of the surprise items. It’s not a cost effective option but it’s still offered.

    • Oops! Thank you, Jill!! I have that info in my $149 review but must have missed copy+pasting that info to this one. My bad!

  2. I tried Golden Tote for the first time this month and I’m so happy. I also picked the Feelin’ Foxy sweater. It’s so comfortable. They did a really nice of finding items that match my style.
