Golden Tote Review December

Due to my recent dissatisfaction with Stitch Fix, I decided to try a new subscription service I had heard about called Golden Tote.  With Golden Tote, you have two options.  You can pay $49 to select one item from several options, and they will send you an additional 1-2 items as a surprise, or you can pay $149 to pick 2 items and they will send you an additional 3-5 items.  You don’t get to select which ones you keep or send back, so it’s more of an all or nothing service.  I decided to go with the $149 option since I felt I’d have a better chance of getting more items I wanted to keep.

They even sent a little bracelet as a bonus.  Overall, I was really pleased with the selections.  The fabrics were nice and soft, and the fit was perfect on all of the items.  I found that even though I didn’t fill out a profile for this one, they seemed to be right on with my style and preferences.  I’m sure it was just pure coincidence, but if this is any indication of the quality of items they send, I’ll be doing this again.

I’m considering cancelling my January Stitch Fix and just doing another Golden Tote since I’m much happier with the items here.

I already wore the owl sweater to work today.  🙂

Curvy Teal Jeans

I had been on the lookout for colored curvy fit denim this fall and really lucked out when I found this pair from Ann Taylor.  The fit is great for my body type, and there is a hint of stretch that made them comfortable to wear.  I paired them with one of my favorite new blouses from Anthropologie that has a black bicycle print on it and an old “minus the leather” jacket from Express.   I also grabbed my mustard bow wedges from Seychelles from last year.  I love pairing teal + mustard + burgundy/brown this fall.

Accordion skirt

Today started out partly cloudy and warm, and ended up rainy and dark.  In the morning I was still hopeful about the weather so I grabbed a bright yellow blouse and my ink blue accordion skirt.  Looking at these two items on the hanger, I didn’t expect them to work for my figure, but surprisingly the blouse is balanced out with the pleats of the skirt and the necklace helps to elongate the look.

(Sorry for the grainy photo, I had to take it indoors due to the rain.)
