Golden Tote May Review

The May Golden Tote has arrived!!

Golden Tote May

Golden Tote MayFor those of you unfamiliar with Golden Tote, it is a subscription clothing service where you can opt in each month by picking either one item for $49 or two items for $149.  If you pick the $49 tote, they will send you an additional 1-2 surprise items, and if you pick the $149 tote you will get an additional 3-5 surprise items.  Unlike Stitch Fix you don’t get to pick and choose what you keep, with Golden Tote it is an all or nothing deal, but it is usually worth the price even if you don’t like all of the items.  The items are very similar to what you would find at Anthropologie.

Here’s what I picked for the May Tote:

I really love this first pick.  The colors on the blouse are beautiful and the fabric is so soft and comfortable.  Great first pick!

My second pick was the off white kimono:

I love the embroidered design on the back and it has a nice fit where it is longer in back.  Very different piece from what I would normally pick, but I like it.

Here were the four surprise items:

Golden Tote May
Priddy dress
Golden Tote May
Naked Zebra Dress
Golden Tote May
Renee C Chevron Dolman Top
Golden Tote May
Under Skies Halter Tank


Of the four surprise items, I liked two of them pretty well.

Golden Tote May(Sorry for the horribly blurry picture), this dress was a surprise to me.  At first I thought I could never pull it off because it’s quite short and thin, but when I added leggings, short black booties and a long necklace, I ended up really liking it.  This is a great find for me.

Golden Tote MayI also liked this dolman top.  The fabric is super soft and it drapes nicely.  I just wasn’t sure how far to pull the band down at the bottom because it’s fitted and long.  This length seemed to work okay.

And finally for the two items I didn’t care for.

I don’t really ever wear tops that show my arms so you’d never even see that this was a halter tank.  Also it’s see through so you need to wear something underneath and a tank with straps would always show through.  Just not my style.

The other thing that didn’t work was the Priddy dress.  I don’t even have a picture of me wearing it because it was that bad on me.  It was super short and did nothing for my figure.  (I’ve already been feeling somewhat bad about my body lately so I wasn’t going to create photographic evidence for what I’ve been thinking.)

Giveaway is now over

Congratulations to Jenn B. for the Speckled Tank, and Debbie P. for the Priddy Dress.  I’ll be putting those in the mail sometime this week.  Watch your mailboxes!

Overall Impressions

Overall, I think this month’s Golden Tote was worthwhile and fun.  I love seeing what the surprise items are and the two I picked worked out well for me.  If they have cute items again next month I’ll definitely consider Golden Tote again.  If you decide to check it out, please use my referral link.  Thanks!

  1. Thank you so much for the Tank! Today I am wearing at work tucked into Trouser jeans with a cobalt blue cardigan over the top!

  2. That is so cool that you gave away the items that didn’t work! What a great idea (and generous). I got the same surprise items that you did, except I got the Naked Zebra dress in Oatmeal.
