Golden Tote May 2014 Review

I received my May Golden Tote today! I couldn’t wait since there were so many items I wanted from May’s selection. Golden Tote is starting to become one of my favorite subscriptions.

How it works: There’s two types of bags to choose from. The $49 bag lets you select one item, and you receive an additional one to two items as a surprise. The $149 bag lets you select two items, and you receive an additional five to seven items as a surprise.

Cost: $49/$149 plus shipping

In addition, you can add-on items during the first week if you don’t want to buy multiple totes.

This month I did two totes.

Here’s what I received:

The $49 Tote

  • Cotton Crocheted Top: I love this shirt! It’s so soft and comfy, plus the detailed back is super pretty and delicate. I picked the white color, but it also came in a light pink/peach color too.

  • Naked Zebra Pink Drop waist Dress: I like this dress. It’s super comfy and flattering on. At first, I wasn’t keen on the hot pink color, but I realize I need some color in my wardrobe instead of the basics.

The $149 Tote

  • Flirty Braided Dress: I really wanted to like this dress. After seeing it on the model, I knew it had to be one of my picks. Unfortunately, the top part of the dress, it wasn’t super flattering, but I still like it. I’m on the fence on whether I want to keep it or sell it.

  • Embroidered Kimono:  I also really wanted this piece, after I saw it in the spoilers too. I’m glad I like it. It’ll be nice to take a break from my usual cardigans. The material is soft and light. It was more ivory than creme though.

  • Priddy Striped Pullover Cardigan: This was a surprise item from last month’s bag, and I really wanted it which I notated in the comment section of my order. I was so happy when I saw it in my bag. It meant that Golden Tote actually took note of my comments, what great customer service!

  • Priddy Dress: Yay for another Priddy item! This dress is super comfy, but I don’t really see myself wearing it out since it’s kind of short. I actually like it for a swim cover-up or a sleep shirt.

  • Naked Zebra Cutout Sleeve Dress: This dress, I wanted to like, but it looked weird on me. It was comfy, but it just didn’t fit quite right. It’s going in the for sale/trade pile.

  • Under Skies Tank Top: This top is cute, but not for me. It was too sheer and tight on the top for me. This one is definitely in the for sale/trade pile.


I also added on the Easy Embroidered Dress, which is super pretty. I just need an occasion for it.

Overall, it’s was an awesome tote! Also as an update, Golden Tote did send me the Lace Dress from April within a week! Plus, I love their customer service and attention to detail. I wrote in the comments that I messed up my first bag at the beach, and they sent one of my totes this month in the Woo bag!

As always, Happy Shopping!
