Golden Tote July 2014

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

My Golden Tote arrived last week and I couldn't wait to see what I got this month! It was very difficult for me to decide on only two items this month, because I really liked all the choices. I decided to choose items different than what I normally would select. I was very happy with what I finally decided on and couldn't wait to see them in person. Golden Tote has been changing the tote bag design more frequently and I was in love with the nautical design this month!

Here is what I received. Many people received the same surprise items this month in different colors, so you might recognize what was in my tote already.

My first chosen item was the Hourglass Lilly maxi dress in navy. I don't usually wear strapless dresses and am not usually comfortable in them, but I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it and knew I needed to try it. The great thing about Golden Tote is I have had excellent luck trading the items that don't work for me in the Golden Tote Trading Group Facebook site. It lets me take a chance on items, even if I'm not sure they'll work for me. But the moment I put this dress on, I knew it was a keeper. It fit perfectly and was very comfortable. It looks long in this picture (I'm wearing flat sandals), but it's actually the perfect length for me. I'm also wearing the Michael Stars sun hat from my Popsugar Must Have July box! I love this dress!!!

The next item I chose was the Lace Open Back Boheme Top by De Phil. This top is completely different from anything I own and much more bohemian than I would normally choose for myself, but I loved it and thought I'd try it. Also, some people have tried it backwards, as a cardigan, and it works! This is very versatile. It looks great worn as intended with dark skinny jeans and a tank underneath. I've been really into lace details lately. And I love the unexpected open back. I was very happy with this top and plan on wearing it a lot!

Now onto the surprise items. The first one was a Priddy by Puella open back dress. I love how this fits and am so happy you can wear it with a regular bra! I wasn't crazy for the pattern I received and was hoping for a different one, but my guy thinks this one looks great, so it's a keeper. I'm a little unsure of the color on me. What do you all think??? And why are there so many paisley fabrics everywhere. I'm really not a fan. I was dreading getting the blue paisley pattern, at least this one just has some paisley detail on the bottom.

I also received a Roly Poly lace detail top in navy. This shirt is very comfortable and I love the lace detail on the arms and back. I'm not too sure about the tie in the back, but I'm going to try to figure out a way to make it work. I was hoping I would receive this shirt in navy or the mint green color, so I was happy when I saw this in my tote. Please excuse Winston my photo bomber. He was posing, so I had to use it!

The final two surprise items I received were the Cut + Sew by Golden Tote floral top and the Celebrity Pink Jeans chambray shorts with drawstring. I love that this makes a cute summer outfit! They showed this shirt as a spoiler and I was hoping for this color. I was so excited it showed up in my tote! I love both these pieces so much and am glad they fit perfectly.

My whole Golden Tote was a hit this time! I love to trade, but it makes it even better when I don't have to and still love everything!!! The August sale starts Monday, August 4th and I'm going to try to skip a month, but we'll see how much willpower I have when Monday rolls around.
