October Golden Tote Review

Hey guys! I caved and ordered my first Golden Tote a few weeks ago because I got obsessed with their clothes and read so many positive reviews. I also really wanted a nice pleather jacket that fits me well, so I took a chance on the one they had one their site for October. This box was my first big (also extravagant, I know) weight-loss reward for myself. What can I say, beautiful things keep me motivated!


Was it ever an exciting mail day today!

I ordered the $149 tote (because I really wanted the jacket and it was only offered in that one, not in the $49 tote) so I knew I would get between 5-7 items. The way it works is that you choose 1 or 2 pieces that you want in your bag and they choose the remaining items for you based on a short questionnaire. I’m so happy with what I got!

I received: the Vegan Leather Moto Jacket (retail $75 on Goldentote.com), A-line Swing Dress (retails for $46), a patterned cropped kimono jacket by Golden Tote’s brand, Cut + Sew, a pastel knit sweater with buttons by Le Lis, a blue knit long sleeve sweater dress, by Fantastic Fawn and a chunky knit black and white infinity scarf. I can’t find any of the items other than the first dress and jacket on the website, so I don’t know what they are called or what they retail for.

First, the jacket. Oh man, the jacket. I am so excited about it!! It’s everything I hoped it would be and more! It’s really well-made and doesn’t have that weird synthetic material smell that some pleather jackets do. It fits me perfectly, even through the shoulders, which can be difficult for me to find. I will wear this all the time!

This dress is adorable, very flattering, and warm! It has a little bit of sherpa lining the collar and hem and is a much thicker fabric than I expected. I’m not a big orange-wearer, but I love this pattern for fall. Such a win.

This isn’t the greatest shot of the button sweater, but you can get the idea of what it looks like. I really like it, even though it’s not something I would have picked out for myself. It reminds me of cozy handknit sweaters and something my mama would get me, and those are both good things 🙂


I really like this jacket, despite the fact that it make me look like I’m wearing shoulder pads. It looks more washed out in this picture than in real life; it really has vibrant, warm colors. I will wear this a lot, especially because it’s cropped so I can wear it under coats without it looking stupid.


This is the only item in my tote that I’m not wild about. I like it in theory, but it’s not really my style and it’s a little straight-cut to be as flattering as I would like. I’ll try pairing it with leggings and see if I like it better.


Bonus scarf with moto jacket

I’m really psyched about the weather getting colder, so I’m really happy they included a scarf! I expected to only get 5 items because of the price of the jacket, so the scarf was a surprise bonus. I like the pattern and it’s super warm!

They also included a Keep A Breast foundation bracelet in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month!

This was an amazing clothing haul! I am so stoked to put it all to good use.
