I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season so far and spending lots of time with friends and family. I have been trying to get everything done, but have managed to only shop for three out of twenty people. I know what I’ll be doing Saturday…The past week and a half has been very tough as I’ve been recovering from a nasty case of poison ivy. I’ve been in and out of the doctors office, jacked up on steroids and other medications, and refused to leave the house with the rash all over my body, not allowed to workout, not to mention the amount of water weight the steroids put on me…glad this is almost over! I’m ready for some normalcy (but is my life ever that?)
I’m excited to tell you guys all about Golden Tote! This is my first time ever letting someone else do the picking out for me, so when Golden Tote reached out to me, I was a little iffy. I was a complicated child that my mom never dared to shop for. She never bought me clothes becuase I never liked anything. She was forced to take me with her on her shopping trips and make me physically try everything on, otherwise all the money spent would go to waste. I had a mind of my own and my style was always changing. I think I went through a month phase in kindergarden where I would only wear my brother’s clothes…(bless my moms heart) My mom still to this day refuses to buy me clothes on Christmas; she gives me gift cards instead. I love that lady so much for never giving up on me- even though I was one heck of a complicated child.
I looked over the Golden Tote website and was truly impressed. Once you sign up for free, you create your profile! This gives the awesome people over at Golden Tote the key points to help you find the perfect outfits. You choose your height, weight, shape, age, sizes, and other personalized options. I love that it asks you which body parts you like to show off and which ones you don’t. I feel like that eliminates a lot of clothing I would never wear! And if you want, you can upload a photo of your style icon!
The totes come in different sizes.
The tote I have is the $149 tote and it comes with 5-6 peices. You could also do the $49 Tote that comes with two pieces or, you can be brave and do a $99 surprise tote that comes with 4 peices.
This top in the photo had two of my favorite things…grey and plaid. It was soft and great for a casual fall/winter day.
You also don’t have to be surprised by everything. You get to pick two of your favorites out of several options. This literally took me a good thirty minutes becuase I couldn’t choose which ones I wanted!
I was shocked when I opened up my tote. It’s like they knew exactly who I was and what I wanted to wear…(well I did tell them) I’m obsessed with stripes, sweaters, black anything, long sleeves, gold, and anything plaid. They had ALL of that included. I was really expecting to not like at least something, but they hit this one out of the ball park.
This was one of my favorites. I think the burgundy/red is really good for my skin tone and a great holiday color. The sweater was good quality and fit me like a glove. I’m very picky when it comes to sweaters like this; they’re usually too tight, too big in the chest, or they make me look like a twelve year old boy. This will be great for after Christmas mass with a pearl necklace and a plaid undershirt.
The add-ons are really cool. If you see something in their boutique (all pieces $25) you can add them to your purchase.
For my style profile, I chose “Classic”. There are a ton you can choose from. My winter wardrobe is very classy/preppy and then my summer wardrobe is very casual/bohemian (on the days I’m not sporting workout clothes).
This dress was super cute and would be great for a holiday party or Christmas Mass. I loved the piece of jewelry that came in my tote as well. I will wear anything gold. The necklace also went well with every single piece in the tote. I loved how cohesive everything was.
I was also very surprised how well everything fit. I know I gave them like a billion answers about my body shape, but everything fit so well! That never happens. I’m in love with all the plaid and all the fun clothes that came in my tote. I think it’s a good thing that I stepped out of the box and let someone else do the picking becuase it made me try on things I may have never from the start!
I have to say that I am pretty dang impressed and I loved absolutely everything. My mom, who is a fashionista, is definitely going to be getting one of these surprise totes for Christmas. I know she’d LOVE it.
And…the last thing (I picked this one out) is the furry jacket. I think this has become my new favorite jacket on the planet. It’s by far the softest, coziest, and warmest jacket I’ll ever own. I plan on keeping this thing until I’m an old lady! I love it so much.
I’m so happy I decided to try out Golden Tote and this will not be my last time using their company! I never thought I’d ever be happy about someone picking out an outfit for me, but I am.
