Golden Tote August Review

My Golden Tote for August arrived last week, but I was busy taking care of my nephew for 5 days and didn’t get a chance to open it until last night.  (It is a nice reward after a week of entertaining a 9 year old boy!) 🙂

Here’s what I got this month:

I really like the design on the tote this month.  I’m not sure what to do with all of the cute totes I’ve gotten from them.  I wonder if people have creative ideas?

Here are the two items I picked:

I think they sent me one of the wrong cards.  I did get the striped summer swing dress, but my other item was the red kimono, not the fringed one.  Maybe they just had one card for kimonos?

Hanging up it’s just a rather shapeless dress, but I had seen it on one of the models with a cute skinny red belt which I didn’t happen to have, but I do have a wide red belt and I think the result is nice.

You can’t tell from the picture, but it’s actually a little longer in back and it’s SO comfortable.  I love all of the knits I got in this month’s tote.

Red Kimono

I had been wanting a kimono for some time and the red color on this one really stood out to me.

I might play around with different ways to wear it because this is just okay.  Maybe with heels?  Black skinny jeans?

Then there were four surprise items.

Priddy Striped Dress

I think this was my favorite surprise item.  This will be a great dress to wear in the fall with a military style jacket and later with tights and boots.  It’s also cute just by itself for late summer.

This is my next favorite.

Again, this is super soft and drapey and very comfortable.

I like the cute back details.

The next item is another tank, but it’s not too loose and the colors are easy to pair with other items.

Collective Concepts Tank

I think I saw someone get this in a Stitch Fix.  I know they send out Collective Concepts brand items so it’s possible.

Then the last item is my least favorite.

Batwings!

I just couldn’t get it to lay very nicely and have no idea how to wear it.  Since it’s one of those items I will never reach for in my already crowded closet I think I’ll do a giveaway with this item.  I’m going on a trip next week and will be out of town so I’ll do the giveaway when I get back.

Overall Impressions

I really liked this Golden Tote and felt that it was very much worth the $149 for the 5 items I really loved.  I was very happy with the surprises this time and all of the cozy soft fabrics.

  1. I had a few similar pieces, but in different colors (Fantastic Fawn dolman, Priddy by Puella dress, and Collective Concepts tank). I really liked all the pieces I got in this tote… I’m so glad I decided to order! I like all of your items as well – Golden Tote did a great job 🙂
