Shopping is the worst. I just don’t have the patience for sorting through racks upon racks of clothes anymore, which is funny because I used to be a prolific thrift shopper. I’ve often joked that if I were rich, I’d hire a personal shopper for myself. But for now, since I’m defo not rich, my preferred method is to see someone else modeling it online, order it, and have it shipped right to my door.
Turns out, there’s a service that combines online shopping with having a personal shopper. It’s the best of both worlds, and it’s called Golden Tote. Ever since I tried Golden Tote, I haven’t been able to stop gushing about it to my friends!
With Golden Tote, you have the option to order a mystery tote or just browse and shop from their boutique. There are two versions of the mystery tote:
- $149 Tote: choose two items you love and a personal shopper chooses 3-4 other items that they think you will like (5 or 6 items total)
- $49 Tote: choose one item you love and a personal shopper chooses one other item for you (2 items total)
- $99 Surprise Tote: a personal shopper surprises you with four items (4 items total)
I tried out the $149 Tote and I was completely BLOWN AWAY by how convenient it was, and by what a good value it is. Here’s what I got in my tote!
This is one of the two items that I selected myself. You can wear the sleeves two ways: down or rolled up and secured with the tab. It comes with a belt, which for this look I chose to tie behind me to hold the jacket open. I paired it with a neutral striped tee, cuffed jeans, and taupe ankle boots for a day spent working at a coffee shop.
This burgundy sweater is something I would have never picked for myself, but I really love it! By adding it to an otherwise neutral outfit, it instantly makes me feel styled. I’m wearing it with a neutral tank, flare jeans, and wooden platform boots.
Black Thermal and Graphic Vest
Pictured here are actually two items: a black long-sleeved scoopneck thermal top and this awesome graphic print vest. I think they work perfectly together! They’re both made of high quality thick materials and are so cozy.
Navy and Cream Striped Tunic
I’ve already worn this tunic two or three times since I received my Golden Tote; that’s how much I love it. With its high-low hem, it’s the perfect length to wear with leggings, like I’ve done here.
This is the second item I chose for myself. I feel like this dress totally epitomizes my style. It’s comfortable to wear, has neutral stripes, and can be dressed up or down. Here I paired it with some patterned tights and lace up platform boots for a date night with my beau!
Overall, I’m extremely impressed with Golden Tote and would definitely order one again. I can tell that the person who styled my tote listened to the color, pattern, and fit preferences that I laid out in the initial survey. Everything fit great, was high quality, and is totally my style. And to get 5-6 items for $149 is a fantastic deal in my eyes. (Let’s be real, I’ve spent more on fewer items many times in my day.)
Final verdict: Bravo! Loved it and highly recommend it. Thanks to Golden Tote for the opportunity to do this review!
