If you aren’t familiar with Golden Tote, here’s a really quick intro: Every month, a new “collection” of seasonally appropriate, trend-conscious clothing is added to their collection. Depending on the subscription level you choose, you can pick out 1-2 pieces from those options, and Golden Tote will surprise you with the rest. The surprise items are completely different from the collections you pick from. Golden Tote also offers a Surprise Tote, where you choose your preferred size but leave all the picking up to the stylists at Golden Tote.
Golden Tote offers a $149.00 Golden Tote (5 clothing items), or $59.00 Mini Tote (2 clothing items). Both allow you to pick at least one of your items. There’s also a Surprise Tote (3 clothing items all picked by Golden Tote) for $89.00.
This is a review of the 5-item Golden Tote, which is $149.00. This month, I selected 2 of the items for my 5-item tote and they add 3 surprise items.
Everything does arrive in a literal tote, and check out how cute the floral pattern is this month!

Golden Tote May 2019 Review
Here is a copy of my invoice, now let’s check out these items!!
The first item is the pair of linen shorts I chose for myself. I had such a hard time choosing my items this month, and almost didn’t get these, but I am so glad I picked them! I am in LOVE! They are sooo extremely comfortable and on trend! It also helps that our weather is finally in the 70s so I can wear them right away! I love the elastic waist and neutral rainbow colored stripes. They match a lot of my clothes and look fantastic with my jean jacket. Definite win!
NZ Sleeveless Button Down Top with Front Tie (Size Large) - Retail Value $40.00
The next item in the tote was this button down top. I love anything with blue in it, so this was a perfect addition to my wardrobe. I have a shirt that is similar to this but doesn’t feature the front tie (which is darling.) I will definitely be wearing this to my son’s tee-ball games this summer!
This ¾ sleeve top is the second item I chose for myself. I love the floral paisley pattern and silky flowiness. The sleeves have a little button on each side for added detailing. It is very comfortable and fits really loose. It will be perfect for cool summer evenings!
Loveriche Short Sleeve Lightweight Sweater (Size Large) - Retail Value $40.00
The next item is one I wouldn’t have chose for myself, but I kind of like it. This light short sleeved sweater is see through, so I paired it with a round neck tank top. Next time I may try it with a “V” neck undershirt to match the necklines a little better. I like the sleeves and detailing around the bottom of the sweater. It is pretty and feminine. I can see myself wearing this to church with a pair of black slacks instead of jeans to dress it up a bit.
Les Amis Black Floral Blouse (Size Large) - Retail Value $40.00
Last up is this black floral blouse. While it gives me more of a fall vibe, it did pair nicely with my white capris. I am a big fan of the ties on the sleeves and I like the silkiness of the fabric and how it flows. Paired with a little red lipstick and I am ready for an evening out!
The Verdict: This my second month of Golden Tote and I really enjoyed everything this month! I edited my style profile after last months tote, and they seemed to hit it out of the park this month! I love the fact that you are able to choose 2 items, so you have some say in what you are receiving: (dreamy linen shorts.) This subscription is super fun and I have already discovered a few items I would never have picked for myself, but ended up loving! I can’t wait to see what they will have for June!
