Ever since late last year when I first ventured into the world of mail-delivery subscription boxes, I have become hooked – particularly on clothing subscription boxes/services. I mean, what’s not to love? You pay for a personal stylist to hand pick items that suit your style and then deliver everything to your front door – all for a reasonable price. In this day when time (and budgets!) are limited, these services are a saving grace. That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about Golden Tote.
Just like similar sites, Golden Tote is an online boutique where you can choose between three levels of service – get two to three pieces of clothing for $49, five to six pieces of clothing for $149, or a surprise tote of four pieces of clothing for $99. You start by filling out a style profile, then you can choose one to two items that you absolutely want included in your tote. After that, the rest of the pieces are chosen for you by a stylist based on your preferences. New totes go on sale the first Monday of every month so you are able to browse the latest offerings for the current season. Go check out the current April boutique!
I had the opportunity to try out Golden Tote’s service, and I was blown away. Not only was the quality of the clothing better than I expected it to be, but I was taken aback at how well my “surprise” pieces matched up with my style profile and preferences. Plus, how stinkin’ cute is that tote bag?! The tote’s graphic changes monthly, so that’s also a fun bonus.
I took my two favorite items from my tote – a classic red striped shirt and a navy blue linen vest – and styled them together to give you an idea of what you might receive in your own tote.
