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″.

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.

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

So adorable and summery.

This would work well with flowy dresses and tops.

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.

This is another attempt at an ootd video for a change. I’ve still included a few photos though. I’m feeling very Quacker Factory in this outfit even though none of it is from that label.

Yes, this was shot on my phone, but edited on my computer!

The current Sinful Sunday prompt is panties. In an awesome coincidence I just got some new rhumba panties that I’d love to share. They go great with my pink soled pumps. In case you are wondering, I rarely wear heels in bed, I don’t want to hurt anyone…too much.

At the beginning of the year I was having a tough time. That usually calls for a drastic makeover. So yes, as I previously mentioned, I had my sister dye my hair red for me. Enjoy these photos of me slutting it up as I headed out to my favorite bar. Then check out where to buy your own over the top pieces. Of course the lipstick is Countessa Flourescent from Lime Crime.

Note: Clicking through the ShoeDazzle hyperlinks in this post and making a purchase will result in referral points for me.

If you are even an occasionally reader of this blog then you know of my love ShoeDazzle. It’s an online shoe club with hot shoes at great prices. Currently SD is having an amazing $15 clearance sale. There are numerous styles to choose from including pumps, wedges, flats and boots. Below are just a few of my favorites.

Please note that all clearance priced shoes are not returnable. This Summer Clearance sale will be valid through 11:59 p.m. PST on 6/28/2013 according to the official ShoeDazzle twitter.

SD 15

Clockwise from top left:

Yasmyne is a studded gladiator sandal. I have these in black, which is also included in the sale. These are great for day or night. I found them to fit true to size.

Caragh is a mint with silver platform with a 5.5″ outside heel and 1″ platform. I just ordered these. So sweet.

Nariko (middle) is a 4.5″ t-strap pump that comes in pink or a silvery green (both on sale). I’m partial to the pink. These are a signature sole! If you are unaware, ShoeDazzle has produced a variety of Signature Soles in the past. These shoes feature hot pink soles.

Courageous are high top patriotic style sneakers. I don’t have these but they look both comfy and cool.

Diddy are grey motorcycle boots with a 1.75″ heel. I’ve found other low heeled boots from SD very wearable in the past.

TIPS

To join ShoeDazzle, click here.

Read customer reviews on each shoe’s page. This is how I find out what size will be the best fit for me. I normally wear a size 8.5 but sometimes a certain style will fit better if you go up or down a half or even a full size.

I recommend becoming a VIP member. As a VIP member you will be billed $9.95 monthly, which can be used towards any ShoeDazzle purchase. If you don’t want to buy something that month the dough just accumulates in your account until the next month. VIP members also enjoy other great benefits. VIP orders that are shipped to US addresses qualify for free standard ground shipping. VIP members even get discounts on new styles. Yes, I do love being a ShoeDazzle VIP.

Keep an eye out for sale emails from SD. That’s how I’ve been able to score some super hot deals. They also frequently have giveaways on their Facebook. Even if you aren’t a winner you can often receive discount codes, which I adore.
