I blinked and it was April ladies. I am almost in disbelief realizing that it has been more than a couple months since I last reviewed Golden Tote. I am super excited to be reunited with one of my beloved personal styling subscriptions with an unbelievably cute large Tote full of pattern & color. I am also beyond excited to partner up with Golden Tote for an awesome “Surprise Tote” Giveaway. Don’t forget to enter at the end of the post via many entry options on the Rafflecopter widget. <3

Have you just found TheBoxQueen & Golden Tote Reviews? If so, I think you may love the Golden Tote Reviews Section with many of my reviews of the service, the looks I created with GT pieces, and my style tips.

UPDATE: October 2016 Golden Tote Review is Live!


In a short summary

Curious to see what I got in my March Golden Tote? Let’s start ladies. Make sure to look under the photos for style tips, outfits details, and ways you can re-create the same outfits with clickable images.


Prints Charming Pant & Señorita Top – Both Chosen Items

These two pieces are my chosen items from the large March tote. I first tried for the purple version of this THML top, but when I saw that it was sold out, I was so glad to be able to get it in blue. These tops sold out in a New York minute.

I am so into lounge pants in prints. They are so perfect for those days you just want to stay in your pajamas but need to look stylish & presentable. This Collective Concepts pair has a great fit, and of course the soft comfort I was after. 🙂


Style Tip: The moment I saw these pieces as a part of March large Golden Tote, I chose them specifically to wear together. I like combining the shades of blue, and I like the print mixing of flowers & the geometric shapes. ( that’s what the pants pattern reminded me of) If you missed the top here is another version of it by the same brand.  I also like this similar option.  These pants reminded me of another lounge pants I have.

Recently I bought these cone heel sandals (which I also announced on TheBoxQueen Facebook) in color Cherry. Cone heel sandals are very on trend for this summer. They literally go with everything, and they are comfortable too which is a huge bonus for this mom. (A sizing tip: If you are in between sizes (for instance 7, 5 and 8 both fit you) go for the bigger size.)  The sandals complimented the red in the top. As I love color, I also introduced a yellow bag to tie all the colors of the top together.

Bo Bel Fitted Dress – Surprise Item

I have seen Bo Bel Fitted Dress in other colors on one of the Facebook Boards I belong to, and I was happy to receive it in pink as one of my surprises.


Style Tip: Body Con Dresses are pretty easy to style in my opinion. All you have to do is to find a great pair of heels (my Zara lace-ups are sold out but I  definitely recommend these lace-ups from current season) and a couple accessories you love like the clutch, drop earrings & bracelet I chose for my look.

Although I really love this dress, it’s a tad tight on me so we’ll see whether I keep it.

Le Lis Cherry Blouse – Surprise Item

I squealed with delight getting this blouse out of my March Golden Tote; it’s so unbelievably cute. I love cherries, I love the fit of the top; not too loose not too tight. Dear KB, you are the perfect style matchmaker sending me this adorableness. <3

Style Tip: The whimsical look of the Cherry Blouse instantly reminded me of my new fringe booties.  I wanted to keep it casual and wore the blouse with my boyfriend, distressed jeans. (Great slimmer fit option) For a pop of color, I chose a bright green bag. A cuff bracelet, and navy drop earrings added some sparkle, and completed my outfit.





Top: Golden Tote (Similar Print, Love This Print Too) | Jeans: Zara -old (very similar style I have) | Bag: Stitch Fix | Shoes: Coconuts by Matisse | Jewelry: Wantable 


LeShop Tropical Fit & Flare Dress – Surprise Item

This tropical print dress, along with the cherry blouse, is my very favorite surprise item of March Golden Tote. I love the colors, the cheerful print, and the lovely fit. I also love that the dress has a V back.


Style Tip: Can I just repeat one more time how in love I am with this dress? 🙂 Now that I’ve got that off my chest, I can tell you how much I loved pairing it with the Vince Camuto cobalt heels I bought recently. (From Trunk ClubSee my first ever review here) I wore a colorful beaded bracelet, and long drop earrings from Wantable to complete the tropical dress look.

The same yellow bag I used for my first outfit makes another appearance here. This season smaller cross body bags are on trend, and I’ve been adding a couple to my closet. I have my eye on this pink beauty. 





Dress: Golden Tote | Shoes: Vince Camuto (Via Trunk ClubSee my Review) | Bag: Stitch Fix | Jewelry: Wantable


The V back. <3


Renee C V-Neck Keyhole Tank – Surprise Item

The Renee C V-Neck Keyhole Tank is a great staple piece for summer. It has a longer back, and soft colors. I know for sure I’ll wear this top countless times over the summer with shorts & jeans. I’ll even wear it tucked in pencil skirts.

Style Tip: I love this style of tops with skinny jeans. I wore my Golden Tote surprise tank with Topshop moto jeans, the cobalt Vince Camuto sandals, and a Kendra Scott necklace from Rocksbox. Btw have you tried your FREE Month from Rocksbox? Use CODE: theboxqueenxoxo to try the jewelry service commitment free.
