Golden Tote Clothing Unboxing Video + Review + Giveaway!

Hey you guys! I have a fun sort of mixed bag (no pun intended) today including some silly pictures of me with a super messy bun, me telling you about a new favorite subscription box/tote thingie, also a there's a fun new video thrown into the mix(hooray for more videos!), and a giveaway of course to top it all off :) If any part of that sounds good to you, then keep reading!
I was so excited when I had the opportunity to receive a Golden Tote, because I'd heard of them before and thought that the idea behind it was pure genius! In a nutshell, I pick out items I loved to create a style profile, and then those items along with several other surprise items were all shipped to me, to keep! Care to share in the surprise with me? Watch my silly unboxing video!
Just in case you didn't have time to watch the whole video, I'll give you another little rundown on Golden Tote and how it works:  New sales launch the first Monday of every month. You choose which size of box you want, choose 1-2 items you love for them to base the rest of your tote off of, and then you're surprised with the rest! Every item is high quality and from great brands, just look at the value that goes into each box compared to what you're actually paying for your surprise grab bag of fashion:
golden-tote
I just think this is the coolest idea, and now that I've opened my tote for the first time and worn the clothes, I can say it's definitely worth every penny. Here are a few pics of me actually wearing the items so you can get a better picture (literally) for those that are curious, like me! :)
Messy hair and all (embrace it ladies:)), here are a couple of my favorites! I love the soft lacy texture of the first one, and contrasting silky seashell back on the second is a style that I've been wanting to add to my closet!
These other four items are so great too, I honestly wasn't expecting to love them all since I consider myself a pretty picky person when it comes to fashion, but those people that personally put your box together must really know what they're doing! I think it would be the ultimate surprise to have a new box of designer clothes arrive at my doorstep every month, especially for those times when I'm just so busy with my kids and life in general that I can't get to the store. Am I right?
Well I should stop gushing for a second to tell you about the giveaway, in case you didn't watch the video!
{CLOSED}

  43. How fun, exciting, and inspiring is this?! I've been trying to think outside of my comfort zone lately when it comes to clothes because my closet could definitely use revamping; this next phase will be known as "the adult years." I think something like Golden Tote could really help. I'm loving the Embroidered Shift Dress. It's definitely unlike anything I own! I'm registered and thinking this would also be a very fun birthday gift for someone as well. Loved your unboxing!
