Golden Tote September 2013 & Giveaway

Rating: Not For Me!
Cost: $49 or $149/month

My Golden Tote for September arrived this week. Shipping always seems to take forever with Golden Tote, but it may just be because I'm so excited to see what I'm going to get! This month I ordered the $49 tote. And now sales are all month long, so if I feel like I need to order another tote at any time I can! I felt like the items to pick from were similar to my last tote picks, but I was excited for one skirt that was available in both tote sizes, so I opted for the $49 one this month.

Here is a picture of what I received.

The item I picked was the Heavy Knit Skirt by Olivaceous. When I took this out of the box I was very nervous it wouldn't fit. Because it is knit it looked quite small (like it would fit my 7 year old niece) I tried it on and it fit, which I was happy about, but I'm unsure of it. It is a very strange material and the only way I can describe it is like something workout clothes would be made of. It's slightly shiny as you can see in the pictures below. I guess I was hoping this would be a nice fall knit, flirty skirt. I'm going to need some time with this skirt to see if I can style it to my liking.

Here is the styling card that was included for the skirt. I'm happy because I have the shirt pictured with it from my last tote in the Eiffel Tower print, so I'm going to try them as they're styled on the card to see if I like them together.

The surprise item I received was an Aztec Sweater by Flying Tomato. I'm very unsure of this sweater. It fits fine, but I'm not sure it's something I really want to wear. It seems warm and will be nice for fall, but I may also need some time to style it to my liking.

Golden Tote also changed their tote bag this month. It's nice, but I think I preferred the other style better (it had cute bunnies)

This Golden Tote was a miss for me. I didn't feel like it had the value that other totes have. Each piece in this tote would have needed to be worth at least $25 to me, to make it worth the value. I'm not sure I would have picked out either piece for myself. Also, I feel like Golden Tote is starting to send the same surprise pieces to everyone regardless of their profile. Every review of the September tote also had this sweater. Most people loved it, which is a good thing! I'm contemplating sending this tote back, but I'll give it a fair chance and try to style the pieces first.

What do you think of Golden Tote? Did you order for September??? Also, feel free to add comments with ideas of how I should style these items...
