I had a busy, busy week so sorry for the delay in posts, especially this review on my first Golden Tote purchase!  I love the idea of subscription boxes (i.e. my recent obsession with Ipsy) so I decided to go on a whim and test out Golden Tote.  For those of you unfamiliar with Golden Tote, it is a fashion subscription started by the designers of Puella!  Every month you have the opportunity to purchase two different totes:

$49-You choose 1 item and will be surprised with 1-2 additional items with a value of $200!
$149-You choose 2 items and will be surprised with 3-5 additional items with a value of $600!

I decided to go with the $149 tote because there were 2 items I really wanted!  Here's my tote!

My picks...

Handkerchief Dress
From the first spoiler, I knew I  had to have this dress.  It's so far from my comfort zone, but there were so many elements I loved about it.  The mixed prints, the length and the wrap detail in the front, all so cute!  This was my first chosen item.

Easy Embroidered Maxi
The other item that I chose this month was this adorable maxi.  Loved the tribal detailing at the top and the color of the skirt, which is more green than I expected!  After seeing it in person, it's actually fancier than I would have liked, but I'm sure I'll have special events to wear this to.

 The Surprises... Speckled Tank
This tank was one of my surprise items!  Aside from the Handkerchief Dress, this was my other favorite item of the tote.  It's so colorful and I loved the braided detailing.  I already have the perfect teal high-lo skirt that I must wear it with.  It is very sheer, so I will have to play around with it and see if it can be worn to work as well!

Naked Zebra Black Dress
This is the most darling dress and a perfect summer LBD.  The problem is...it doesn't fit, at all.  I've seen other Golden Toters mention that this dress (and maybe other pieces from this brand) run small.  If any of you ladies are interested in acquiring this piece, send me an email!

Priddy by Puella Eyelet Dress
This dress was specially made for Golden Tote!  It is a bit short, but would make a great beach coverup!  I absolutely love the eyelet detailing and the soft material of the dress, but it just doesn't seem to work for my body.  This is the other piece I have up for sale or trade!

Priddy by Puella Swing Top
I was back and forth on this top.  Loved the stripes and the pop of coral, but at first glance it seemed to be shapeless.  Well, this was the first piece I wore from my tote and I am obsessed.  It is so comfortable and will be getting a lot of use this summer.  This brand can be found in Anthropologie and comes in different colors.  This is my favorite combo for the summer!

The Pros of Golden Tote:
-Before you purchase a tote, you do fill out a style profile, which Golden Tote will use to determine your surprise items!
-The Golden Tote community is very supportive and there is a Trading Group if there is an item you'd like to sell or trade!

The Cons of Golden Tote:
It's all or nothing.  If you don't like your tote, you need to return everything.

They also share sneak peeks before a new tote launch.  A few June sneak peeks have just been released, and I can't wait to see the rest!  This in particular is really intriguing me...

I will be sharing more photos as I style these pieces throughout the coming weeks!  I had so much fun seeing how fellow subscribers styled these pieces and to see what items they chose and received.  It's worth trying out at least once just to see what it's all about.  If you do decide to try Golden Tote, I would love for you to use my link and please share what you think about it!  I would also appreciate if you follow me on Instagram and Bloglovin to get the most up-to-date posts!
