A Year of Boxes pays for this subscription.
For any of my readers who aren’t familiar with Golden Tote, let me tell you this…..it is AH-mazing!! I freakin’ love this subscription service. I never have to go to the mall anymore, and that makes me very happy! Plus, it allows me to try out styles I wouldn’t normally pick out on my own. This surprise fashion box won’t be for everyone. But if you are open to trying new things, you might just love it as much as I do. Here’s a look at my December styles…..
Skies are Blue Plaid Puffer Vest – Surprise Item
I almost peed my pants when I saw this little gem in the box. I have been waiting for them to include a vest like this in one of my boxes, and here it is!! And it’s from one of my favourite brands. I love anything from Skies are Blue. In regards to the vest itself, what’s not to love. It’s plaid, it has a fuzzy lining, and it fits me like a glove!! We are off to a good start!
Joy & Co Lace Floral Blouse – Surprise Item
In my style profile I requested florals, and loose fitting tops. It’s safe to say they nailed it. I love that this one also has some lace detail. It will allow me to dress it up for a night out. It looks a little see-through in the photo, but I tried it on with a nude bra and it was find.
Collective Concepts Pocket Shift Dress – Surprise Item
Oh my goodness!! This blue dress has my name written all over it. If I was to design the perfect dress, this is exactly what it would look like. Everything from the color, to the style, to the length, and of course the pockets. I absolutely adore this dress! It’s loose fitting and it hits about 3 inches above my knees.
Fireside Plaid Cardigan – Chosen Item
This is the first of my two chosen items for December. I have to admit. I had trouble picking them out this month. The styles I really wanted sold out before I had a chance to snag them, so I had to go with plan B. I loved the look of this cardigan but was a little worried about the fit. I’m glad to report that I like it much better in person, and it fits better than expected. I’ve already worn it twice.
Stylish Shift Dress – Chosen Item
This is another item I wasn’t sure about. I love shift dresses, but didn’t know how I felt about the detail on this one. It’s definitely not my favourite dress from Golden Tote, but I’m still going to wear it. I think I would have liked it more if it was a little shorter. I can always get it hemmed.
Golden Tote Review December 2016 – Final Thoughts
I am in love with my December Golden Tote. Aside from the Stylish Shift Dress, I adore absolutely everything! As far as my surprise items go, they nailed it! I like my surprise items better than my chosen items. I sometimes wish we had the option to only receive surprise items……and then I realized that WE DO!! Oh my gosh, I totally forgot about the Surprise Tote option. How could I forget about the Surprise Tote! I think I might have to go purchase one after I’m done writing this review………like right now…..
