Golden Tote is a monthly fashion subscription that offers two tote options each month. Instead of recurring billing like most subscription boxes, each month on the 1st, New Totes go on sale and you choose if you want to buy them or not. GT is an all or nothing deal. You can not exchange of refund single merchandise, but you can return the entire Golden Tote.
The $49 Tote is a small tote filled with 2-3 pieces of clothing. The $149 Tote is a large tote filled with 5-6 pieces of clothing.
- $49 Tote: Pick 1 item and they'll surprise you with 1 more item.
- $149 Tote: Pick 2 items and they'll surprise you with 3-4 more items.
- $99 Surprise Tote - 4 pieces total.
Shipping: US is $9.95. International is $30. They offer free shipping on US orders of $149 or more and International orders of $149 or more are charged $25.
I've gotten the Surprise Tote a couple of times, but this is my first regular Tote. I went with the $49 Tote. BTW, charging $30 for shipping to Canada seems outrageous to me! I'm sure they could get a lower shipping rate...I mean 2 pieces of lightweight clothing in a plastic envelope does not cost that much to ship - just sayin'!
Oat + Fawn Elephant Top
This is the item I chose. It's a really cute elephant print top. It's a relaxed fit and made from 100% polyester. I think it's a fun, summer top.
This is how it looks on the model:
Chris & Carol Elastic Waist Maxi Dress
They could not have picked a better dress for me! I love these style of maxi dresses! I have a few already, but I don't have one in grey. Made from 95% rayon and 5% spandex, it's so comfortable! I'll get a lot of use out of it this summer!
My first Golden Tote was just great! I got 2 pieces that I really love and they both fit true to size! If it wasn't for the insane shipping fees I'd probably get a Tote more often, so until they lower those fees you won't see many reviews here.
What do you think of Golden Tote?
