Eeeeek! I feel so nervous about this post! I am SO not a photo person. I feel awkward and totally uncomfortable in front of the camera but when the opportunity came up to review Golden Tote I contacted my cute friend from Malae from Malae Talley Photography + Design and made her work as much of her magic as possible on me. The clothes though, well I’ll tell you exactly what I think so get ready!
I love it! Can you believe how totally darling all of these outfits are? Gosh dangit, I’ve got a new favorite thing and although I just got my tote I already want another just to see what Golden Tote would pick out for me! But I guess I’ve gotten a little ahead of myself so let me back up… Golden Tote is this totally fashion delivery site where you pick out two items you love and they send you 5-7 items based on your style. I was SO NERVOUS to get my first bag. Was I going to get such high fashion stuff that I’d look ridiculous or clothes that fit so frumpy that I’d feel like a hobo?
You can choose a small bag that’s $49 and sends you 2-3 items or a bigger bag for $149 and you get 5-7 items. Retail is anywhere from $250-$600!! That’s a good deal folks! Golden Tote sales are monthly, launching the first Monday of each month, lasting the duration of the month, so you can shop the October sale NOW! And I LOVE everything! And here’s why, except the black dress absolutely nothing was something I’d normally pick out for myself, but sure enough I love them all. It’s safe enough for me to try but fun enough to get me to try new looks and push my comfort zone a little. Plus, I love having things that are different than what everyone else in the neighborhood is wearing.
Now there is a catch, everything they send is yours to keep which means that they don’t except returns, but don’t fret, you could always use this awesome facebook group to swap items. How handy is that? But guys, I’m not giving anything up. This little wrap dress is so fun and I can totally bust it out fall, winter or summer. Love that.
This dress was one of the items that I picked out. It fits perfect (hello sizing that actually stays true) and I love that it can be dressed up or totally casual. And Golden Tote, I want one in every color. We can make that happen right? I’m in love with it!! In fact, I think every woman should own one.
You may want to pin this one too, how can you not love a thick cape? It’s gorgeous and I am already getting gobs of compliments. Boo-yah!
I adore, adore, adore this scarf. It’s thick and so pretty. I want to live in it. Forever.
This sweater is so darling. It’s casual but interesting. It’s totally comfortable but I love how it comes up at the side and has the button detail. I’m a details girl, totally makes an outfit.
Annnnnd last but not least, this sweet sweater. I wasn’t sure about it at first as it is totally something that could be a little off, but I like it! I don’t know why but I do! I think it’s fun and different than everyone else’s aztec black and white sweaters that they are busting out. Keeper!
So, normally I’m all about doing my own shopping and keeping things super classic, but I’m going to tell it like it is, Golden Tote is kind of totally awesome and I think you all should try it out too. In fact, I really do so post it on instagram and tag me, #GTOhsweetbasil. DOOOO IIIIITTT!
And here’s the rest of the photos in case you want to take a gander;)
