Golden Tote is a monthly fashion service. Unlike most monthly bags, boxes or crates, you are only charged if you login and make a purchase. New styles are released (at least) monthly, though. You can purchase a $49 small tote, a $99 surprise tote or a $149 large tote. Shipping is free if you spend at least $149.

The cool thing about this service is that it’s curated. This means that if you choose the small tote, you can choose one tote item and then they pick a surprise item for you, based off of your style profile. For the $149 tote, you choose two items and then receive 3 or 4 more that are surprises. The $99 tote is 4 surprises.

Stylists also work off of your notes. So if you absolutely love maxis, let them know! You can even mention surprises by name and they will try to get you them, if they are available. You can also buy additional items from their boutique. If you buy them while getting a tote, then they may be offered at a great discount. This is the first month that GT has started offering swimwear and shoes!

If you would like to join Golden Tote, click here. (Please note: This is a referral link. If you purchase through my link, then I get a $10 credit towards my purchase.) Now, these are just my personal favorites. There are many other styles available this month.

Totes go on sale on the first Monday of the month. So, July’s sale launches on Monday, July 6 at 12PM EST. Hop on ASAP to make sure you can get your size in your favorites.

leopard Collage
Ladylike Leopard Maxi Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $52
Add-on price: $40

in peach or aqua (I want both!)

I love this. It’s the item that I want the most this month. It features a cute back, tie waist and slit. It’s made of 100% polyester. This is supposed to run true to size. I guess that is with a relaxed fit though, as these are the measurements for the chest: 36″ small, 38″ medium and 40″ large.

tie dye Collage
Step Bright Up Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $62
Add-on price: $40

in magenta or yellow

This maxi is just super fun. It is also 100% polyester. It’s listed as true to size, but seems to run smaller than the last dress. Chest measurements are: 30″ small, 32″ medium and 34″ large.

denim skirt collage
Classic Denim Skirt
Available:
In the $49 tote and $149 tote
Boutique price: $35
Add-on price: $30

This is really a simple, classic skirt, but that’s what’s so great about it. It’s made of 98% cotton and 2% spandex. It’s listed as being true to size, but I think that it runs large, based on the waist measurements: 29″ small, 31″ medium and 33″ large.

crossover Collage
Draped Crossover Blouse
Available:
In the $49 tote and $149 tote
Boutique: $35
Add-on: $30

in ivory or navy

This 100% rayon, draped top just catches my eye. It features a faux wrap front. It is listed as being true to size, but sounds a bit large. The small has a chest measurement of 40″.

coverup Collage
Lounging Poolside Swim Cover
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $48
Add-on price: $35

in pink multi, mint or navy

This is super sweet. All of the colors rock, but I’d go with the pink. This is 100% rayon. It’s said to run true to size, with a loose fit. The chest on the small measures 52″.

in the BOUTIQUE

SWIMWEAR

Feather Print Bikini
Feather Print Bikini
$14 per piece
sizes s-l

This is a cool cut and a super fun print. I’m not sure about this fitting anyone who doesn’t have a small chest though. It runs true to size.

Garden Floral One-Piece
Garden Floral One-Piece
$35
sizes s-xl

I really dig the cut and classic print of this suit. It runs true to size.

Paisley Print Tankini
Paisley Print Tankini
$14 per piece
sizes s-l

I would definitely wear this. I actually have a set that is similar, so it wouldn’t be out of my comfort zone at all. The ruching on the bottoms is adorable. It runs true to size.

SHOES

butterfly bobos
Butterfly Slip-Ons
$20
sizes 5.5-10

Bobos are always comfy and easy to wear. This is definitely a fun print for the summer. They run true to size.

floral flats
Floral d’Orsay Flats
$24
sizes 5.5-10

These look comfortable, but just dressy enough to be worn for special occasions as well. They run true to size.

woven sandal
Goldilicious Woven Sandal
$22
sizes 5.5-10

Sexay! They run true to size.

glad
Everyday Gladiator Sandals
$20
sizes 5.5-10

These seem a bit plain at first glance. However, I’ve had a similar style in black and I reached for them until they wore out. So these would definitely be awesome to get. They run true to size.

ACCESSORIES

silver shell cuff
Silver Shell Cuff
$12

This would look hot with sleeveless dresses and tops.

Aurora Headband
Aurora Headband

in gold or green (teal)

I’m not really a headband person, but I’d make an exception for this cutie.

I just adore hats, even though I don’t wear them as often these days. This is a perfect summer hat.

This would work well with flowy dresses and tops.

Today I was helping a friend identify vintage hats. While doing so I looked up photos of classic movie stars in tilt hats. I couldn’t keep these to myself so I’m sharing them with you. I really need to start watching more classic films. The fashion alone is riveting.

Note: I did not keep track of where I sourced these photos from as I didn’t plan this post. If you recognize a photo from your blog and need me to source you (or remove it), please let me know.

straw cowgirl hat-Kmart, wooden bead necklace-gift from a friend, Converse plaid babydoll dress-thrifted, Hush Puppies denim & silver sandals-gift from a friend

A couple of weeks ago we had an unusually warm day so when we went out to eat I was able to wear this super cute Converse babydoll dress that I haven’t worn nearly enough. I was feeling happy and silly cuz my man was wearing his new Santa hat so I topped it off with a cowgirl hat that I bought at Kmart in 2011. I added a necklace and shoes and voila, a fun day!

How cute is he, really? Super, ah.

Albertus Swanepoel for Target Ganache Hat, pink pearls-Kmart, faux leather brown bomber jacket-Dots, Carol Anderson brown and white polka dot dress-thrifted, green pantyhose-Target, Rocket Dog heels-thrifted

As you’re aware I have a bit of a 90s fetish. So as of late I’d found myself ogling the cute, comfy looking shirtdresses sported by Bridget Fonda, Mary Stuart Masterson and the like while watching 90s flicks. So yes, I was on the look out for a shirtdress to add to my wardrobe. What I happened to come across was actually one that I believe is from the 80s that was trying to evoke the 50s. I loved it. And yes, it totally came from the local magical thrift shop where I score stuff like this super cheap.

As I mentioned in my Miracle-Gro post I’ve been wanting to do an OOTD in front of our garden. However I’ve been feeling run down and not even trying to dress in anything but tees and cargos lately. However at the end of April during a day that felt like fall I tried to improve my down in the dumps spirit/downtrodden body by wearing this and whatever other fun things that struck my fancy.

I paired my dress with some green tights I got at Target over the winter, adorable brown and green Rocket Dog heels, a faux leather jacket I got at Dots a while back, my pink pearls (cuz why not) and topped it with a cloche hat that I snagged at Target on sale. Yes, it was from that Albertus Swanepoel for Target collection that I was coveting last fall. I managed to score this one and the blue hat in my snow alien photo set (also from his collection) super cheap since people in this town don’t love hats like I do (clearance baby!).

I sort of felt like I was walking around from a different time period in this outfit but it definitely cheered me up, thus doing its job.

Yes, I’ve posted an OOTD of me in this dress before but I think that pairing it with the hat gives it a different look. Speaking of the hat, I bought this during the Missoni for Target madness but there’s like never a good time to wear it. I love how it looks and it’s fun to wear. The problem is that it’s so large and floppy that I can’t really see. So I felt like that pretty much made it unsuitable for going most places, to see a movie, out to eat, shopping, etc. I wore it shopping recently anyway. As a bonus it was very windy that day so I had to keep clutching it so it wouldn’t blow off my head.

This look is pretty simple other than that. I did feel a bit like a witch in this hat dress combo. It reminded me of the song Witchy Woman when it was featured in that episode of Seinfeld when Elaine chooses it as her song. There would be a clip of it included but I can’t locate one, darn!

I’m (possibly) getting to arty with these. Ah, that’s my modeling side wanting to break through. I really need to do a new photo set soon.
