Since I have a four year old, and I have a hard time trying on clothes when she is shopping with me, I have been trying out a couple of different online styling services. I have ordered from Stitch Fix a couple of times, and my results have been hit or miss, but I tried out Golden Tote for the first time in February. I love it! They have won my heart. I was supposed to get a Stitch Fix this coming week, but I cancelled so I could purchase a large Golden Tote in March.
The way Golden Tote works is very different from Stitch Fix. Golden Tote releases their new items for a month on the first Monday of the month (except this month they are releasing on the second Monday because they are launching a new website). They then sell them until they are sold out. Golden Tote has two different tote sizes. A small tote that includes 2-3 items for $49.00 plus shipping ($7.95 for regular shipping) and a large tote for $149.00 plus shipping that includes 5-7 items. With a small tote you pick one item, and with a large tote you pick two of your items. The rest of the items are picked out for you based upon your style profile.
For February I ordered a small tote with a Cozy Knit Cardigan. In addition to the 100% cotton cardigan that is machine washable, which is a must for me, I received an Hourglass Lily shirt. The cardigan alone was worth the value I paid for the tote.
Right now Golden Tote is offering free shipping on all orders (it is refunded once the order ships), so I ordered a mystery tote (they have them left in size small and extra small). However, next Monday I am going to order a large tote. I have my two items all picked out. First, is the Sunday Brunch Dress, which is washable! The second item is the wide leg jeans.
If you have never order from Golden Tote before and want to give it a try, here is my referral link. Happy shopping!
