Fellow Goldies, and all ladies that are just discovering Golden Tote, I am SO happy to be back with a sparkling new review of this fab personal styling service, with looks created by the pieces I received. I’ve been a big fan of Golden Tote since the very beginning of its existence; even before the Sarahs had a full functioning website, many many years ago. After a couple months of hiatus, due to excessive shopping on my own for summer haha, I could not resist the casual chic turtleneck tunic. (One of Octobers chosen items) Had to order a tote! <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 outfits I created with GT pieces, and my style tips.

HOW DOES GOLDEN TOTE WORK?

  • Golden Tote is a personal styling service from the creators of the beautiful Puella brand; the two Sarah’s.
  • Golden Tote offers monthly sales that are announced via their free newsletter ( You can sign up easily here). You need these newsletters as the best Golden Tote picks sell out fast.
  • You get to choose between a $49 or $149 tote and pick one or two chosen items respectively. In a couple weeks you receive an exciting package of on trend clothes (chosen for you based on your style profile) at an amazing value.
  • There is a Golden Tote Facebook Trading Page you can become a member of. You get to trade or sell your pieces there. Even better, the ladies there are so friendly.
  • Find my Golden Tote Outfits Pinterest Board Here.
  • Golden Tote accepts full or partial returns on totes and boutique items.

I ordered a small tote with the pink turtleneck as my chosen piece. I received a gorgeous green lace top as my surprise item. Let’s take a look lovelies!

VERY J TURTLENECK TUNIC

This cute, versatile tunic (similar style here) with beautiful lace-up arm detailing caught my eye immediately. I thought it would be a cozy, casual chic piece for fall and that it would be perfect for layering under cardigans come winter. I loved the top when I tried it on at home even more. On me, it had a true to size fit, and comfortable but not too loose shape.

Style Tip: Tunics are perfect for combining with leggings due to the coverage they provide, and I did just that. I chose a grey neutral pair (this option is a good basic leggings) and added brown toned accessories, including these Frye Melissa boots  (Keeper from October Trunk Club Review ) and my new Tory Burch buckle tote.  (Keeper from this Trunk Club Review)

For accessories, I used my beloved Perry Street Earrings I got from Rocksbox (also see them here) as well as the Kendra Scott necklace also kept from Rocksbox. Both pieces of jewelry have a modernized classic feel that I think elevated the casual look.

Rocksbox has become a favorite service of mine over the past years. If you still have not tried Rocksbox, get a FREE MONTH here commitment free with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo

Ellison Lace Detail Green Top 

If you also follow my Stitch Fix Reviews, I recently received a lace peplum top (in this October Review ) also in color green from SF. I wrote that I sent that piece back because I received a similar top from Golden Tote. That similar piece is this Ellison Lace Detail blouse.

I am SO in LOVE with this top. (Another pretty, green lace style I love) The color is a deep jewel green that is even more stunning in person, the lace sleeves and neckline make it so girly, and the sweet ruffle detail is precious.

Style Tip: Lately, I am really into pairing greens with burgundies. This old BCBG skirt is one of the pieces in my wardrobe that I’ll never get rid of. It manages to stay current over the years. The same is true for my corset belt; perfect for creating definition ( and more of an hourglass figure.) (this BCBGMaxAzria belt is also very flattering)

To anchor my outfit and give it a bit of balance I chose black pumps as my shoes. A statement clutch ( adore this piece too) gave my look the finishing fun touch it needed.

    I love both of your outfits. I’ve been looking for a cozy tunic to wear with my leggings. Thanks for the options.

    I really like the arm detail on the pink sweater. Your combinations, as always, make the outfits look ten times better.
