Golden Tote June 2014

Rating: Love It!!!!
Cost: $49 or $149/tote (I'm reviewing the $49 tote)

I received my Golden Tote very early in the month, but wasn't able to get around to taking pictures. So, this is quite late, and I was already able to trade for an item I wanted instead of what I received. I went with the $49 tote this month, in an effort to save money. But then Golden Tote went ahead and released a Surprise Item Tote, which will be 4-5 surprise items for $99 plus shipping. I couldn't resist, so of course I ordered immediately! The surprise totes will not sell out and you are able to order it from the boutique at any time. If you haven't ordered one yet and want one. Click here to get one (or two, or three)!

For the June tote, I was able to choose one item and I selected the Road Trip Tee. This sold out quickly, so I was happy I ordered as soon as the sale opened. This shirt is great because it can be styled casually with jeans or shorts and it can also be worn with skirts. I love how it looks like a plain striped tee from the front, but the back has a lot of personality. I love the buttons!!! So cute!

Golden Tote announced that the surprise item for both $49 and $149 totes would be the Puella Slouchy Pants and I was really hoping I would receive the black ones. When I opened my tote I saw I received the patterned pants, and I really wanted to trade for black because I thought the black would be more versatile. I couldn't find a trade that wanted the patterned ones for the black ones, so I ended up buying the black ones from someone on the Facebook Golden Tote Trading Group. I love them! And I'm determined to make these pants appropriate to wear for work, because they are so comfortable!!!

I was also contacted by a lovely Golden Tote Trading Group member that had asked if I still had the patterned slouchy pants available. She had traded for them, but then had them stolen from her in the mail. I felt awful for her, and although I wasn't crazy about what she had to trade, I did it anyways. I received a Naked Zebra green sleeveless shirt from her (pictured with slouchy pants above). When I pulled it out of the package, I was in love! It was the softest, silkiest shirt and when I tried it on I knew it would go great with so many items in my wardrobe. I love Golden Tote! This is a shirt I never would have chosen for myself and yet it's perfect and I love it! It's reason enough for me to always take a chance and give everything a try!!!

As always I'm happy with my tote, even though there was only 2 items in this month's $49 tote. I was hoping for a little something extra, but I'm very happy with what I did get. I'm looking forward to receiving my surprise tote!!! And I'm trying not to order in July, but we'll see how that goes. So far I love the spoilers, so it will be difficult. I just feel like I'm missing out if I don't order every month. Don't you love Golden Tote?!?

  1. I can't wait to get my hands on my June tote. I also purchased the $49 one but I am traveling and hubby will bring me my mail including my tote <3 I got the same printed slouchy pants you got ( and traded), and my pick was the shorts. Love your striped Tee. It's super versatile and the back is fab! Enjoy these Kristie, XOXO, Elif

    1. I can't wait to see your review and how you styled your pieces!

  2. I feel like I should have ordered that Road Trip Tee--it looks great. Are you doing the $49 or $149 for July?

    1. Thanks! I love the road trip tee. It's so versatile. I ordered the $149 tote for July. I loved all the choices this month! I selected the navy hourglass lily maxi and the boheme lacy open back blouse. What did you choose for July?

      I also received my surprise tote and will be reviewing it soon. I wasn't crazy about what was selected for me.
