Golden Tote Review September 2013

Yay! Golden Tote!  This is the September tote that I ordered the first day that sales were open.  This is the $149 tote, where I selected two items and they surprised me with the rest.  There is also a $49 tote, where you pick 1 item and they surprise you with 2-3 more.  This is something you have to purchase each month, it doesn't autorenew.  You can save a style profile so they know your preferences.  Most of my favorite articles of clothing are things I got through Golden Tote.

New bags!
GT sent out a different tote style this month, and I love it! It's coming to Las Vegas with me this weekend.

I received a bonus item: Sofala Thin Bangle $16.  Hand-made from recycled materials in South Africa.  It's not my cup of tea, but it supports a great cause.  It's WAY TOO BIG.  I had to slide it almost all the way up my arm to get it to stay.

This was the first item I picked.
French Terry Moto Jacket from [(?) sorry, I've already left for vacation], $62 on sale from Golden Tote's Boutique

I love it, super comfy!  This will be great this fall and it will go with everything.

This is the second item I picked:
Boho Luxe Dress from Collective Concepts, listed for $88 original price, according to Golden Tote's selection page for September

Pol Sweater, approximate retail value $20? It's always so hard to find these things online.

POL Cardigan- Golden Tote September 2013
This is dark gray with light gray stripes; just my style! It's not as soft as I would have hoped, but maybe after a wash or two it will be nice and cozy.

Puella dress, retail estimate $65?

This is a dark gray drop-waist with some interesting details around the neck (the fabric is folded, kinda) and the bottom is pretty full, which makes it fall nicely.  Makes my butt look great! Check that out.  This is also SO SOFT.  I can't even tell you how comfy this dress is.

Flying Tomato Sweater, approximate retail $45?

Against my better judgment, I like this sweater a lot! I wouldn't have picked it out on my own, but it is nice and soft and you can tell it's well-made.  It will definitely be one of my winter staples.

Sweet Claire shirt- retail about $15?

This is good.  I like the pocket and that it's cozy, and it is definitely my style.  It's boring, but I wear boring clothes a lot, so it's a good fit.  It's a little bigger than I would have liked, but I am guessing it's just the style.

As always, I feel that this was well worth the $149 price tag.  I love everything, there wasn't a dud in the bunch.

Unfortunately, my budget won't allow me to get Golden Totes for a while, but this is a nice way to end my run :)

No special consideration or compensation was received for this post and all thoughts and opinions are my own. All items mentioned within were paid for by me.


  1. I loved the flying tomato sweater and the grey jacket! Everything looks great.

  2. thanks :) i like the sweater, too! I feel like I need to wait to wear it until it gets a little more wintery outside though.

  3. So envious that you got the Boho Luxe dress! I've been wanting that one but they don't have my size left! I really enjoy reading your reviews.

    1. Thanks! I know the feeling. The dress I wanted from the November tote sold out in my size in about an hour! Oh well....
