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
$12

in gold or green (teal)

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

classic floppy hat $20

$20

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

canvas foldover clutch in birds or elepants

This is just fun. GT has offered this before and it sells out fast.

So adorable and summery.

Feather Party Belt

This would work well with flowy dresses and tops.

intricate waist belt

This is a bit thick, but looks like something that I’d reach for often.

Pineapple Clasp Belt
Pineapple Clasp Belt
$10

in pink or turquoise

Stone Disk Necklace
Stone Disk Necklace

I don’t wear much jewelry, but this is just awesome! It’s totally reminiscent of those geode bookends that all of us had back in junior high.

There seem to be some really great surprise items coming to us this month. I’m interested in the butterfly kimono, bicycle dress and the orange tropical print dress.

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.

I’m a fan of the link round ups that a lot of bloggers do to share cool posts and other happenings so I’m giving it a shot today. I haven’t done this before. The closest I’ve come is posting the IFB round up when I’ve been it or last year’s infrequent series Web Oodles. That was more of a wrap up of entertainment info though with sporadic links thrown in though.

The Best Time I Didn’t Sit Next to Harrison Ford by Kelly Pippin.-This is great. It’s about a woman who had a huge crush on Harrison Ford in Jr High due to the rerelease of Star Wars (hey, me too!). Then she met him out of the blue one day. The comments are good too.

Pictures of the day: 1 November 2011-A photographer named Steve Jones took a photo of whale sharks and Indonesian fishermen working together in harmony. This is a really cool photo.

Hats Off!-A woman talks about her hat collection. Yay, hats!

15 Fun Things To Do When You’re Drunk-because you shouldn’t have to come up with your own ideas when you’re already drunk.

Madonna Unbound in W Magazine-I came across this photo shoot of Madonna from 2003 and I really dig it.

amazing pumpkin pie-A yummy vegan pie recipe for Thanksgiving that Alicia Silverstone recommends.

The Muppets Deluxe Overhead Latex Mask, Statler-Are you going to see the new Muppets movie? If so wear this and scare the hell out of the little kids in attendance (and many adults as well).

Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts-These look really good. Unfortunately they were sold out when I tried to buy some recently.

My Mad Men Bachelorette Party! -Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky had a Mad Men themed bachelorette party!

Kemper Pedic Bed-I loved Jason Segel’s appearance on SNL last night. Here’s one sketch to wet your appetite for more. I was so happy that he was in a bunch of the sketches (hey not all hosts do that, I think that they get overwhelmed). The full episode is here.

Our lives, in photoboothsThe Bloggess posted her personal photobooth strips from the last 8 years. It’s a neat idea.

MAC for Miss Piggy Eyeshadow Swatches, Photos, Reviews-MAC put out a small Miss Piggy line because of the new Muppets movie but the reviews are not good.

How I Met Your Mother Happy Slapsgiving Men’s T-Shirt-Wear this tee on Thanksgiving, which is time when we all gather to give slaps.

Santa Hat Mustache Christmas Ornament-Your tree needs this.

Adam Scott on Conan-I’m not a fan of Conan’s current show but this was pretty good. I enjoyed how Scott talked about his early auditions.

Exclusive: Concept Art from Fresnadillo, Bradley Cooper’s The Crow-The new Crow movie with Bradley Cooper has dropped Cooper as well as others from the project. These are the drawings of what his character could have looked like. They’re pretty fugly for the most part.

These are a few of the pieces that I love this fall.

Fitted Sweater

Fitted Sweater by missemmamm featuring a gold sequin cardigan

As I mentioned recently I’m totally mad over cardigans and other types of fitted sweaters this fall. I find them a bit tricky to find just because I have super long arms. I’ve always found soft cardigans sweetly sexy. Aside from a cardigan the Shawl Collar Wrap Sweater by Sofia Vergara that I tried on here would definitely be a top choice.

Glitter Shoes

Glitter Shoes by missemmamm featuring qupid shoes


Glitter pumps are gorgeous so basically every brand has jumped on the trend, which I’m stoked about. I recently purchased Temptress (gorgeous) from ShoeDazzle but despite that fact I am still longing for more shiny shoes. Some of the above styles are available at Kmart and are also very cute in person. If I buy another pair they will probably be a platform or a wedge so I can wear them more often. Sparkly shoes are so popular that JustFab has an entire collection devoted to them called Night Lights.

Cloche Hat

Okay, these cloche hats are just darling. It’s no surprise that they are readily available. It is likely that my passion for these was kindled by my recent outing as a flapper for Halloween. Of course you already know that I am a crazy hat lady.

Plus they will keep your head toasty!

A Dark Lipstick

Recently I’ve been almost exclusively reaching for deep reds and plums when adorning my lips, in particular Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Metallic Seduction (included above). I’m also coveting the classy Glamour 101 from Lime Crime. I mostly included brands that I am personally a fan of here. They are soft and provide good color payout.

Animal Print

Animal Print by missemmamm featuring leopard print pumps


Leopard and other animals prints are no stranger to fall fashions but that doesn’t mean that I’m overlooking them. Although I’m not currently into an all over animal style look I am fond of animal prints in small doses this fall. Of course I’m most drawn to almost any style of leopard shoe.
