7X7 Challenge Now onto today’s fun. When Natalia asked me to participate in a July 7 x 7 Remix, I was all over it.  It presented the perfect opportunity to come up with a travel wardrobe just in time for our beach vacation next week. Then something even more serendipitous happened.  My very first Golden Tote arrived chock full of goodies – perfect for wearing to the beach. If you’re not familiar with Golden Tote yet, then check out this cool graphic from their web site which explains how it works much better than I could.  🙂 How it Works Basically they take the guess work out of shopping by sending out a curated collection of designer goodies in your size.  You even get to select some of the items that you get.  Best of all, this is one of the only personalized shopping experiences that starts at a price point of just $49 for two pieces – up to a $250 value. I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the items in my first Golden Tote.  The minute it arrived on my door step, I knew ALL of the pieces would be coming along on vacation with me.   I received seven items in my tote – three gorgeous dresses (white, black and striped), a beautiful scarf, a fun tribal print top, a striped peplum t-shirt and a lightweight cashmere sweater.  Most of the pieces are pictured in my 7 x 7  below.
