Front & Center Dress

This is one of my faves.  I chose it and got this is an XS and the fit is perfect.  Casual enough to wear to work and dressy enough to wear to an afternoon event.  I love that is lined.

Beach Bound Buttondown

Beach bound Buttondown is one I chose and I’m glad I did.  I paired it with cut offs and Birkenstocks.  The fit was loose and liked it with sleeves rolled and top unbuttoned.

LeShop Top With Lace Detail

This is a surprise item. The green top fits nice, but a bit matronly.  I paired it with white linen pants.  The fabric is nice and its true to size.

Skies Are Blue Embroidered Epaulet Tank

Another surprise item. This came in stunning rich blue.  It’s wearable with a ton of items.  I’ve paired it with skinny jeans-white and regular, cut offs, and bell bottoms. Chunky jewelry, and messy hair set the look off.

Ya Border Print Shift

My last surprise item. This dress is fun.  The rayon fabric makes in comfy and lightweight.  The fit is off though.  The cut makes it difficult for me to lift my arms.  I love the look and wished it had fit better in the arms.  Positive point-the length is perfect.

This is my first Golden Tote Bag. I’m excited about it but am going to be more specific on my profile! What did you get in your tote this month?

  • Hi there! I was looking for reviews on Golden Tote and yours came up. I love the Red Front and Center dress that you have on. I wanted to know how you determined to order that in size XS opposed to size small which the other items are. I am in that in between size and always struggle if I should get the XS or Small because each company is different. What advice do you have on sizing?
