Golden Tote: December 2014 Review

My closet has grown tremendously this past year, with my monthly delivery of clothing subscription, Golden Tote! I’ve been ordering large totes (5-7 items), but I decided to scale back to a small one (2-3 items) this month, since there are quite a few people I needed to buy Christmas presents for. But with Golden Tote’s Cyber Monday promo I received an extra surprise item + another surprise item to replace an item that I received a few months ago that had an odd smell to it. So it ended up almost being like a large tote anyway!

Merry Metallic Top 
In a small tote you only get to choose one item, so I opted for the Merry Metallic Top. I was a little concerned about how the fit would be after pulling it out of the box and seeing that it looked kind of wide and short. But on? It fits perfectly – not super wide or short. I love it! Very happy with my pick!

Peppermint Plaid Dress
At first glance the Peppermint Plaid Dress was pretty cute and I was already thinking up occasions to wear it. But unfortunately after trying it on, I learned it wasn’t a good fit. It felt (and looked) a bit frumpy on me, so sadly I put it up on the GT trading board. Oh well.

Roly Poly Top
The Roly Poly Top was my favorite surprise item in my December tote. It runs a good size and a half small, so I’m glad the GT ladies sent me a size larger than usual in this fitted tee! It’s also extremely comfortable and makes for a good winter shirt in FL (it’s not too thick) or layering tee when traveling to cooler places.

Fantastic Fawn Lace Top
My last surprise item was the Fantastic Fawn Lace Top, which after turning it around and seeing the lace back, I knew it wasn’t a top for me. I tried it on anyway and loved the fit, which was a bummer because the style wasn’t me. I was able to quickly find a happy home for it though, so I’m glad someone else is able to get some good use out of it!

December’s Golden Tote was an even split for me – I liked 2 of the items and didn’t like the other 2. But it worked out because I was able to trade/sell the ones I didn’t like! Did you purchase a tote this month?

  • I've never heard of golden tote. What a cool concept! I'll definitely be looking into it.

  • I love reading these posts every month! I would be curious to see what you traded for too. :)
