For my first month of Ivory Clasp, I received an Izzy and Ali tote bag. There are similar totes here but I can’t find my exact bag online. The similar Izzy and Ali tote bags are running anywhere from $149.00 to $169.00.
Here’s a quick snapshot of the brand of bag I received: “Izzy & Ali is a Los Angeles based vegan handbag manufacturer with a commitment to produce fashion forward, animal-friendly designs of the highest quality for our customers. Our collection celebrates the effortless chic and dynamic landscape of Los Angeles by featuring a rainbow of hues, custom hardware, and designs. Izzy & Ali is a fun, affordable, quality brand that represents all styles from the Malibu cool girl to the downtown hip girl.”
Aaaannnnd here’s a picture of me being awkward. I’ve styled the bag here for daytime wear, and hope that this shows you how large this bag truly is.
The bag is vegan leather. It doesn’t look too bad for vegan leather but you can definitely tell it’s not real. I am a handbag junkie, and I have to be very honest and say that I would never choose this bag for myself.
Here’s a picture of the bag from above.
Here’s a picture of the lining of the little clutch that comes attached to the bag. This is really handy for those items that you don’t want to fall into the black hole and disappear. I do really like that this bag has an orange lining opposed to a dark lining – it’s easier to find things!
Here’s a picture of an ‘evening’ look I used the bag with – I was headed to church, and decided to wear my pretty pleated midi skirt from Anthro, along with an Everlane tee (best t-shirt ever), and Corso Como sandals.
(Hey look, there’s the Rachel Zoe watch from last fall!)
Verdict: I think Ivory Clasp has potential, but I also think there is potential to mislead people based on the brands they mention on their front page vs. the unknown brand that I received. The brands they advertise are Michael Kors, Cole Haan, Vince Camuto, Fossil, Kate Spade, Sam Edelman, LeSportSac, and Jessica Simpson (a wide variety of price points there), and the brand I received is one I’ve not heard of (and again, I’m a bag junkie). Though, apparently they are sold at Nordstrom!
This style of bag is not what I would have chosen for myself, but it was nice to experiment with a new style a bit. I realize that I’m going to sound a bit snobbish here, but I rarely carry non-leather bags. The reason for this is that I am very hard on my bags, and leather holds up better to daily abuse.
I am interested to see what bag I receive next month for sure! Have you given Ivory Clasp a go yet?
