Golden Tote Review September 2016

Golden Tote Review September 2016

Oh my gosh, it has been WAY too long since my last Golden Tote review. I had to take a break from purchasing totes as I was working for another clothing subscription box this past year and it was kind of a conflict of interest, I guess. But that company has since been acquired so I am back with my Golden Tote reviews and I am SO darn excited!

If you aren’t familiar with Golden Tote here is a quick overview – Each month they release new items for you to purchase. You can choose to buy a $49 tote or a $149 tote. With each tote you get to choose a specified number of items and are surprised with the rest. I always opt for the $149 tote, get to choose 2 items on my own and am surprised with 3-4 more items.

I had my eye on the brown floral dress and just couldn’t pass it up. It’s the main reason I ordered a September Tote. My other chosen item is the black dress, let’s have a closer look at each one…..

Collective Concepts Floral Dress

This dress is AMAZING! It fits better than expected, it’s comfortable, it’s flattering, and it’s perfect for Fall. I wore it for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it. This is my first chosen item. I ordered size small. PS – it has pockets!!

Re:Named Babydoll Dress

This is my second chosen item, and it is also size small. I wasn’t sure if it would be flattering on, but it actually is. It has a very loose, flowy fit, which is what I prefer. The length is perfect and I will be able to wear it with tights and knee-high boots.

Peach Love Floral Dress

This is my first surprise item. I requested Fall Florals and loose-fitting dresses. I did’t love it at first, but now that I have styled it I actually really, really like it. This one also has pockets…..bonus!

Chris & Carol Mustard Cardigan

This is my second surprise item, and I couldn’t be happier. Mustard yellow is one of my favourite colors, but it’s so hard to find. I requested oversized cardigans, and while this one isn’t oversized, I still really like it. It’s fitted through the arms, and super comfortable.

Fun 2 Fun Floral Top

Well, my stylist definitely took my style comments into consideration. I wanted Fall florals, and Fall florals I did get. I don’t love the material of this top, but I LOVE the style, and the colors. As with all the pieces I received this month, I fell in love with it even more after styling it.

Golden Tote Review September 2016 – Final Thoughts

How on earth did I go so long without ordering a tote! I forgot how awesome this fashion subscription service is. My September Golden Tote is absolutely perfect. I really couldn’t ask for more. They listened to my style comments and sent me exactly what I asked for. My two chosen items are better than expected and I’ve already worn both of them twice. I am wearing the top as we speak, and I know that the cardigan will be a go-to for Fall. It’s official, I’m back on the Golden Tote train and I will definitely be ordering a tote every month going forward.
