A Golden Opportunity

This post is sponsored by Golden Tote. Thanks, Golden Tote!

James is impossible to go shopping with these days, especially when we’re shopping for me. My summer wardrobe consisted almost entirely of tank tops and yoga pants or running shorts (for comfort, not to, you know, work out). So what I’m saying is my closet is lacking lately and it’s hard to fix the situation in a store…thank goodness for online shopping!

Golden Tote is one of those cool subscription clothing companies that I’d heard a ton about, but I hadn’t tried it. They have three options for shopping, and they all sounded very intriguing:

The Mini Tote: Contains two items; one you choose and another picked by a stylist for $59.
The Golden Tote: Contains five items; two you choose and three picked by a stylist for $149.
The Surprise Tote: Contains three items, all picked by a stylist for $89

I went with the Golden Tote that has five items, then scrolled through their inventory to find two items I wanted. I went with two safe, very “Heather” choices:

My surprise items were this shirt, with the cool cut outs on the back:

And two dresses that I love:

It’s swingy and I love it! It’s been my perfect end-of-summer dress.

And this is going to be my new go-to Little Black Dress. It’s perfect for me and I keep dropping hints to Mike that he should take me out to dinner so I can wear it!

(Honestly, don’t I look so natural and breezy posing in clothes? I really should be a fashion blogger.)

I really like this service! I liked having a little control to order pieces that I know I will like and use, and I was really pleased by how well the stylists followed my style preferences. I also really liked that you pay a flat rate for the clothes – even if the items normally retail for more, you’ll never spend more than the set price for each tote. I thought it was cool that if I hadn’t liked what the stylists picked, or if items didn’t fit, I could have returned them. They even have a Facebook page dedicated to swapping items.

A new tote goes on sale the first Monday of every month (so there’s a new one coming out in ten days!)

I liked the service so much that I would love to give one of you $50 toward the tote of your choice! To enter, leave me a comment below. You can get a second entry if you fill out a style profile and leave me another comment. I will choose a winner at random next Friday, Sept 2, just in time for the winner to order the September tote!

Good luck and happy shopping!

The First Grade

Our first First Day of School of the year is in the books! Mike and I blasted Kool and the Gang’s Celebration to wake her up, and she hopped out of bed dancing (James is not a morning person and was super-pissed). She talked all the way through breakfast, brushing teeth, getting dressed, and doing hair….

Old School Days

Yesterday we found out Annabel’s teachers and classmates (we’re all thrilled—I’m happy about the awesome teachers, she’s happy that her best friend is in her class). As we walked back from the school, I told her how her uncle and I would be bouncing off the walls the night before school started. When she asked…
