Oh man do I love these faux fashion blogger posts. I was recently given the chance to try out Golden Tote, and jumped at the opportunity. I loved all the clothing I received so it’s time for a picture overload!
Golden Tote is one part personal styling, one part online shopping. They offer two different sized totes: a large tote for $149 that includes 5-6 items and a small tote for $49 that includes 2-3 items. A new tote is offered once each month, and the sale lasts the duration of the month.
For the large tote, which is what I received, you start by picking out two items from their boutique. You fill out a style profile, and based on your preferences, a stylist will surprise you with 3-4 additional items. You can also add on to your purchase by buying any of the other items in their online boutique.
My two picks were the Barcelona Pant and the Pop Print Tee Dress, and I’m obsessed with both. How fun are these prints?! The dress had “me” written all over it—bright colors and bold patterns paired with a casual, sporty design. And the pants are so on-trend right now, I couldn’t pass them up. Plus, they’re like one small step up from pajamas so … hello, lover (Carrie Bradshaw voice).
In addition to the two pieces I picked, I received three tops—all of which I love—and a dress that I’m not crazy about, but is still really cute. That’s the one downside of Golden Tote: returns are all or nothing. Although you can’t return just one or a few items, there is a Facebook group for trading pieces. I’ll hang on to the dress and see if I end up wearing it, and if it doesn’t get any use, will probably just give it to a friend. It’s cute, just not really my style.
The last shirt is totally my style. Sporty neckline with animal print, and I loved the mixing of delicate materials with casual cotton.
As an added bonus, the striped neckline matches my favorite mug perfectly (I got it in a Yankee Swap a couple years ago—cute, right??). Ever since that nasty stomach flu I had a few weeks ago, I haven’t been able to handle how acidic coffee is, so I’ve switched to tea. Lately I’m loving the organic Tiny Tea from Your Tea.
Final verdict? I would 100% get another tote. This one was complimentary (thank you, Golden Tote!), but considering I now have six new items in my wardrobe that I love, I think the $149 price tag would be well worth it.
Have you tried Golden Tote? Which is your favorite of the pieces I received?
