My Golden Tote purchases, May 2014

Holy mother of gosh, that was the most frustrating Golden Tote experience I've ever had! It's never happened to me before that something I had in my cart was sold out before I had a chance to purchase it, so when the GT website kept popping up the message "not all your items are in stock" or something to that effect, I had to do some detective work to figure out which item wasn't available. (Because, of course, having the website tell me that information would make things too easy.) Turns out I wasn't going to get the tunic top that I wanted. (I tried it in both medium and large.) And now I just headed back over to the GT website and saw that there are no more $149 totes left. What happened this month?!? Guess I should count my lucky stars that I was able to get one, though I'm thinking they'll probably be back in stock shortly.

Anyway, I ended up getting the Classic Puella Maxi in emerald and the Embroidered Tassel Tank in red. I'm pretty happy with these selections; I hadn't considered the Puella Maxi before, but I think that I'll wear it more than I would the tunic, so maybe everything worked out for a reason. I wanted to add on a few more purchases, but after my traumatic experience getting repeatedly denied at checkout, I decided to just place my order as fast as I could.

What did you order for your Golden Tote? Were you able to snag a $149 tote before they ran out?

  1. I got a $49 one, but it took me 15 minutes to purchase it since I kept getting a random error.

  2. Oh, I picked the breezed open back dress from last month that I missed in my size.

  3. I did order the $149 tote- Webbed Trim Tunic and the Floral Shift Dress. Thought the Shift Dress would be great for summer and fall!

    1. Oooh, I'm jealous of you ;) I wanted the tunic, but that was the elusive item that kept going out of stock for me. Now it's back in stock, and in the size that I need, but I can't float another $150 for a second tote. The shift dress is very cute, too!

  4. After lots of struggling trying to decide what to get I ended up with the Flirty Braid Dress and Black Puella Maxi in my tote, and the Peach Crochet Top as an add on.
    But then woke up this morning regretting not getting the Emerald Puella Maxi and snatched one of those up too! It was a big month.

    1. I took a closer look at the crochet top after I checked out, and I kind of wish that I had added that to my tote. I was so traumatized by the checkout process, though, that I just wanted to place my order and get my top picks locked in :) This month was crazy, but in a good way!

    2. Totally agree! I was having issues while ordering and was like I don't care let me lock this in and deal with the issues later.
      Can't wait for the reviews. :)
