Golden Tote $59 Mini Tote Review – August 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)

GOLDEN TOTE 59 TOTE AUGUST 2016 - packaging

They send your items in a differently designed tote every month! This month’s is a really cute sunset design, but since I got 2 totes in one order they sent me one of last month’s ice cream design instead of giving me 2 August designs. They do this to make sure there’s enough for every order to get at least 1 monthly tote. I have really liked all their designs so I don’t mind!

Neutral Natural Wrap Dress – value: $40

This dress was my surprise item this month. This dress is a win for me in every way (style, fit, color) except that it’s just a little short. It’s so similar to the Star-Crossed dress I got last November, so I may swap this.


Simply Striped Tee – value: $40

This tee was my chosen item for this month. I’ve found that I really like more casual tops lately, and this one is perfect. I love the tops and the layered details at the edges. The material is actually a nice thin knit and isn’t too see-through, so it’s perfect for the recent hot weather. The fit is great, and it’s quite comfortable.

Here, I’m wearing it with my new slim bootcut jeans that I chose for my $149 August tote – you can read my review of that here.

Verdict: My mini August Golden Tote is a win for me! The quality of both items is great and the style and fit are spot on. The value adds up to $80 when I only paid $59, so I’m happy with that.

What do you think about my mini August Golden Tote? Did you grab a tote this month?

  1. That shirt is SO me. It looks like something from The Loft. Tote envy 🙂 I love it and it looks great on you!

  2. Tights and boots, perfect fall dress and won’t look too short!

    • Agreed!

  3. That blue dress looks adorable on you! Very flattering. I think you should keep it. : ] I’m kind of wishing I had chosen that shirt, too. It’s really cute. I ordered the $149 tote just before the sale, so I’m hoping one or both of those are in mine.

  4. I want that dress! I never get anything I request so I’ll have to try the group after I see what’s in my mystery grab bags.
