Do you ever wish you could hire a personal stylist, have someone help guide you when it comes to styles you know you like? Do you loathe clothes shopping because you get overwhelmed and frustrated by all the choices? Do you put it on the back burner because you just don't have time? If you said yes to any of these questions I have a fun and affordable solution for you. I'm so excited to share a fun and easy way to shop. It's called Golden Tote.
If you haven't heard of Golden Tote I'll explain. It's an online site where you have the option of choosing between 2 different levels of service. You can select the 2-3 item tote for $49 (a $200 value) or 5-7 item tote for $149 (up to $600 value).
Does this spark your interest? If so, you can begin by going to Golden Tote and fill out your style profile, select 1-2 of your favorite pieces and the rest of the items are chosen for you, selected by a stylist, based on your preferences.
I had the pleasure of trying out their service and couldn't wait to share what I chose and what my surprises were. To be honest, I was a little hesitant on the surprise portion. I am not a big fan of people picking out clothes based on what they "think" I would like, but was I beyond pleased by how well they matched my style. The quality of everything was superb. Plus, they sent idea cards for styling some of the pieces.
I have always been skeptical of these types of services and actually enjoy shopping for myself, but I must say, this was so easy and fun. I picked a few pieces I knew I would love, got a few surprises along the way, received a box full of goodies on my door step and didn't even leave my house. Score!
I do want to mention that this is NOT a monthly subscription. You can try it out once, if you like it you can come back next month, every other month, once a quarter or even send as a gift to someone else.
I put together five styles of the six pieces I received. As you know, my style is eclectic, so I had fun playing with five totally different looks. I hope that you see at least one you can relate to.
