My September Golden Tote has arrived, and the packaging was a little different. This time, none of the items were in bags, but were instead held together with a stretchy headband (similar to what Stitch Fix does)
Chic Front Pocket Jacket in Peach
I attempted to style this similar to what they did on the card. I didn’t have a necklace like on the card but I’m sure I can dig up something similar. I just got these metallic pink ballet flats from Amazon and thought they worked with the outfit. The jacket is soft and comfortable so I imagine I’ll be able to wear it a lot.
Plaid Button Down Shirt in Red
For some reason I was expecting this one to be flannel (didn’t read the description) but it’s actually just a cotton plaid shirt. I like the roll sleeves and it’s got a nice slim cut to it. I’ve seen some ideas for how to wear it on pinterest (black jeans, jean jacket) so I’ll be sure to wear it soon.
Then here are my four surprise items.
Hem & Thread Dolman Top
This was probably my least favorite surprise item. The top is pretty short and rides up when you move, but it’s very comfortable and the colors are interesting. I’ll wear it on a weekend sometime and see how comfortable it is.
Skies are Blue Lace Top
This was totally something you’d find at Anthropologie with a big price tag. I like the lace front and roll sleeves. Easy piece to layer with.
Le Lis Mixed Media Sweatshirt
The front of the sweatshirt is super soft and it’s very cozy. The only thing I don’t like about it is how wide the neck is. If I’m wearing something warm like this, I don’t want a wide open neck to make me feel cold. I saw ideas on the blog to wear this with a chambray shirt underneath, so I may do that to stay warm.
Priddy Knit Pants with Faux Leather Waistband
Again, these are super cozy and comfortable, but styling them will be a challenge. The blog suggested a tank and cardigan or a tank and high heels. I’m not sure I can make them look dressy, but I’ll see what I can make work because they are sooo comfortable.
I was pretty happy with almost every item in this tote. I got a bunch of great fall pieces and fashionable items that I would not have picked for myself. I was a bit disappointed I didn’t get the plaid tee that some people were getting as a surprise item, but what I got was pretty good too. I think Golden Tote is a great value for $149.
