This is a very simply packaged subscription box – the purse comes in a non-marked box, and there are few accouterments! This month, Ivory Clasp included a thank you note, info about With212, and a postcard promoting Gentleman’s Box.



With 212 – The Bleecker Hobo – Value $138.00

This month, my bag is a hobo from the brand With 212. I’ve not heard of this brand before, but the bag is made very well and I like the style quite a bit. The bag I received is ‘denim blue’ and made from faux pebble leather. It has several tassels and zippers with embellished zipper pulls. There are a lot of details that make the bag look great.


Here, you can see the side has tabs for additional decor and the back of the bag has a nice sized pocket. I love these pockets for my keys and cell phone!


The lining of the outside pocket is a light camel color, which makes it easy to find things!


The lining inside the bag is the same color, which is great. I love lighter colored linings since it makes it easy to spot what you’re looking for quickly. The bag has two pockets on the inside – neither zip closed, but they’re both nicely sized. 


This month, they included a bonus key chain puff!


I wore this outfit to dinner. I’m wearing a chartreuse trapeze dress, my Zadig and Voltaire scarf, Aquatalia Booties, and my With 212 bag. 

Ivory Clasp has really forced me to think outside of my style limits. I gravitate to very simple designs and neutral colors for my handbags naturally, but Ivory Clasp sends out more trendy bags. I never would have chosen a bag this color for myself, so I had to think outside of the box when styling it!


Here’s a glance at the bag from above while I’m carrying it – this is always something I pay attention to, but I’m not certain why! I just like to know what it looks like when I look down, I guess.

Verdict: I paid $45.00 for this box and received a purse that was worth $138.00. I think that is a great value for a subscription box. I have consistently received bags that exceed the $100.00 mark, which is great! The thing to consider is what I mentioned above – it might push you out of your style zone as far as styles and colors go. I am really enjoying this subscription box.

She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. There is NO WAY that these bags are worth the price they say. I actually got a tan and black tote bag with braiding down the side and then there’s a smaller black purse inside that you just switch the straps to. I like it, but the straps are cheap and the thread is coming loose and hanging! I got an olive green backpack style bag in January and then this month I got a pebble colored purse with black zippers going up the front at an angle, but there’s no pockets! I’m going to cancel, I can find better bags at Nordstrom Rack! There’s NO way they read the profile we fill out. I’m getting colors that I preferred not to get!?

  2. I LOVE my bag. It’s a With 212, called The Plaza. Solid grey on one side with mint green, peach, coral and grey blocks of color on the other. 2 handles on top with a strap included.

    Very much my style and I’ve received a lot of compliments on it. I love telling people it only cost me $10 🙂

  3. I got the Austin and York Melissa Quilted Duffle in the “stone” color. I hate it. The color is the worst part for me, it’s so neutral it’s not even a color at all. It’s also ENORMOUS. I feel I’d fall over carrying it. I put it up for swap in case it’s someone’s style, but if no one bites in a week or so, I might send it back and try again.

    • That’s what I got in mint green. Nms at all. I took out the papers inside and it collapses, I don’t carry that many things to fill it. I am sending it back I just need more shipping tape. I was able to email them some pics of the one’s I like and was told to choose the one I wanted.

      • If you wouldn’t mind letting me know what you paid in shipping? I’m trying to decide if it’s worth it to me.

      • Hello HalliLikeBerry, they sent me a USPS 2 day priority label it doesn’t have an amount on it. It says 3 lbs priority mail rate, maybe you can ship 1st class.

        I didn’t pay for it though. Idk why some people are getting labels, but some have to pay to ship back. I told them how unhappy I was and they sent the label.

      • Thanks for letting me know– I emailed them back saying basically the same thing, so hopefully they will send me a label. I guess they want to see if they can get you to pay for shipping first?

  4. This is my first experience with Ivory Clasp. How can you tell if the bag has been shipped? Do they provide a tracking number? My CC was charged on March 1st so it hasn’t been too long, just wondering.

    • They are supposed to send you an email that it has shipped. I felt that it was taking too long so I emailed them and asked when it would ship and got an email back with the tracking number. HTH

      • Thank you, that does help.

      • You’re welcome!

      • I have not received my purse when can I expect my purse

      • Hello Belinda,

        I did the Valentine’s day seasonal deal. I received the 1st about 2 months ago and was told this about the next ones:

        “And your next bags will come every 3 months after that. So, middle of May, middle of August, and middle of November.”

        I have not received any shipping info yet. HTH

    • Just a little update if anyone is interested. My order went through on March 1st and I received my bag on March 22nd. I don’t know if this is the norm but it did seem a little long to me. I do, however, like the bag. I would never pay the retail value for it but I will use it and it’s nothing like what I already own. I received a Republic of Aces Vickie bag in red with black and white snakeskin accents.

  5. Got my bag today and they could have kept it. I don’t know who makes up these retail values but this bag isn’t worth the $10 I paid. Super cheap materials and just ugly. Did they even read my survey?

    • Which one did you get? I got a vegan leather braided duffle bag in mint green. I would nvr have purchased this bag. I don’t think I would even want it for free, so I am sending it back. It feels weird and smells terrible.

      • I got a dolce vita in black with gold hardware and long fringe at the bottom. It is huge and you can tell it’s not real leather. The term vegan leather is ridiculous to me. It is people trying to make something fake sound posh. It’s not even worth returning to me as I paid $10. I will find someone who can use it, possibly a women’s shelter.

      • I actually got the same bag in a cognac color and it is genuine leather. I returned mine, though. Not my style.

    • I posted mine down the page a bit…but I will post it again….mines MUCH bigger than I would like also.

      Mine came in today, 2 days earlier than expected. It’s exactly what I didn’t want. It’s an Austin & York..Jalyssa Hobo, retail price $118. The color is beautiful navy blue, it’s Vegan leather. It has 2 pockets on the front and back that zip on the side of the bag and came with a second bag inside the bigger bag (crossbody bag in same color)…so I actually got 2 purses for $10. What a deal, too bad I really don’t care for either.

      I can’t find a picture anywhere? I will say it’s a “hip” looking purse, nothing I would pick out for myself. I will try it out and see. The strap/handle is short and has a zipper look across the top if it. I cannot put it over my shoulder comfortably and didn’t come with a longer strap.

      But again, I will not complain, I got TWO purses that are beautiful for $10.

  6. I received my bag yesterday. I got the Bleecker Hobo in blackberry. It’s quite large, but I like it.

  7. My bag arrived today. It is 100% NOT me. It’s the Indio bag from Republic of Aces.
    The fringe was all tucked inside so I thought I received a nice but boring bag. I thought it odd that the outside tassel hung so far past the end of the bag. Then when I realized the fringe comes out of the bag I quickly outgrow the target demographic for this bag. It’s not leather and you can tell. The interior is actually very small with a fabric lining that is not attached to the bottom of the bag so when you pull something out the lining comes out with it. The worst part of the bag is the tag inside. it’s a gold and lucite bar that scratches your hand every time you reach inside the bag. This was a total miss for me.

  8. I got mine today, it’s the blue Bleecker satchel. I like it, it’s a nice restrained color, a good shape, and has lots of room. It’s probably the With 212 bag I would have chosen for myself. Definitely not worth full price, but probably worth $52, and a good deal at $10!

  9. How come everyone else is getting theirs so quickly? I’m in Massachusetts and mine won’t be here until March 8 ! That’s a long wait no? I will probably unsubscribe, I just hope I get it in time to. 🙁

    • Same here. I’m in Georgia and mine says delivery date of march 7. Seems very slow to me. Kinda loses some of the excitement waiting so long. Oh well.

      • I am starting to lose my excitement too. Mine changed from the 7th to the 8th.

      • Wonder if the people getting them early live in California or near there? I hope mine switches earlier haha

      • I got mine Friday and I live in Alabama. They got at least 200 new subscribers that day… Combined with regular subscribers… They are probably just working there way through a long list. Have patience. My shipping was weird also though. It took an entire day for it to travel from one FedEx to another one in the same city. Then it sat at that location for two days.

    • I’m in NY and I have an expected arrival of Tuesday march 7th. Another 8 long days 🙁

      • Update…mine came today 3/4 and I got the pastel green Austin and York Melissa quilted duffle.

      • I got the same one in mint green. Do you like yours? I am sending it back, I already have the label.

    • I’m in Chicago, and it’s taking a super long time here as well. It actually was checked into a chicago FedEx location, then got sent to Wisconsin for some reason, and says it will be back on Wednesday (??). Getting kind of annoying, but at least it was a really good deal.

    • Same here. Mine was picked up from them on the 24th and won’t arrive to me in CT until the 6th.

    • Mine came in today, 2 days earlier than expected. It’s exactly what I didn’t want. It’s an Austin & York..Jalyssa Hobo, retail price $118. The color is beautiful navy blue, it’s Vegan leather. It has 2 pockets on the front and back that zip on the side of the bag and came with a second bag inside the bigger bag (crossbody bag in same color)…so I actually got 2 purses for $10. What a deal, too bad I really don’t care for either.

      I can’t find a picture anywhere? I will say it’s a “hip” looking purse, nothing I would pick out for myself. I will try it out and see. The strap/handle is short and has a zipper look across the top if it. I cannot put it over my shoulder comfortably and didn’t come with a longer strap.

      But again, I will not complain, I got TWO purses that are beautiful for $10.

  10. I got the same bag. It’s a little less exciting than I was hoping (I loved that black and white geometric design from your previous review). But I think it’ll be a good travel bag. I didn’t get a Pom Pom, which I’m ok with. Tempted to stay signed up after my $10 deal. Every other month isn’t so bad…

  11. So cute and the little fuzzy chain.

  12. I also got mine during the $10 promo they had a while back and I’m STOKED is SO my style and it can be a crossbody bag as well so that was a huge bonus

    The fact that it was so close to my picks during the survey and that it was such a lovely bag in general leaves me with a great impression of this company. I will be keeping the sub for $45 and fingers crossed that each month is a winner!!

  13. I got the Deux Lux Etoile hobo bag. I really like it. It is very me. It’s a soft charcoal gray with star shaped pale rose gold studs all over it. I’m a little disappointed I didn’t get a pom pom but I guess they must have run out.

    • That’s a really nice one. I hope I get something like this and a pom pom too!

      • I’ve been binge buying pom poms on eBay. I feel ridiculous because they serve no purpose but that isn’t stoping me.

  14. I received a With 212 bag as well, as a replacement for the first bag they sent me that was a total fail. I am very happy with the new one! It’s a nude tote that will be perfect for spring. I also received the pom pom in hot pink – my dog thought it was a toy and tried to steal it! Not sure if I’ll actually put it on the bag, but it does work as a nice pop of color.

  15. Is it just me or did they spell really ‘realy’ on their thank you note …. or is there two l’s there that I just can’t tell apart Lol

  16. I got a Dolce Vita satchel. It’s selling on one website for $113, but is sold out at that price. It’s 100% leather on the outer, but all I can smell is the 100% polyester lining LOL. The tassels aren’t my style at ALL but for $10, I’m happy to consider using it haha

    • FYI, one of the reasons that I subscribed was because of this in their FAQs:

      14. What if I don’t like the bag I get?

    • how did you get the subscription for $10?

      • It was a Galentine’s deal Liz posted here as an exclusive deal for new subscribers via MSA. They capped it at 200, and all 200 were used up within maybe 6ish hours, maybe less.

    • Oh, I really like that.

  17. Cute purse!

  18. You are always so nicely dressed and that bag works with your outfit.

    Girl you got it going on!
    Thanks for the review

  19. I just received my With 212 bag! I’m in FL and it took long enough to arrive from California that I forgot it was coming, but it was a nice surprise! Very well made. It has five colors on it – which is really pushing colors for me. Baby pink, baby blue, black, tan and behind those sections a glassy brown. Wish I could attach a photo! It is so well made and will work nicely as things begin to heat up. The only thing I would change is getting rid of the baby blue – the pink and neutrals are lovely. This is my third bag from Ivory Clasp, and I continue to be impressed.

    • You can upload a pic on and paste the link in your post. I want to see everyone’s bags, lol!

      • I got the same bag and posted a picture on the discussion board. 🙂

      • if you go to the brand’s website, It’s the Essex

  20. Very cute bag and I love the color.

  21. I just got my first bag yesterday and I’m very happy I only paid $10 for it. Although the style is something I love, the colors are pastel and I don’t even own pastel clothing. I went in and changed my style survey to state no pastels. It’ll make a great gift.

  22. I got this same bag and the fringe pieces that are tied to the shoulder strap already came apart. I was really disappointed. It was easily removable but I feel like the purse is missing something now. 🙁

    • You should email them about it. They are very nice.

  23. Nice bag! At 1st I did not like it, but after your review it looks so much better. The only thing is I am not used to carrying bags like that. I use crossbody bags.

  24. Really like this bag! I also like to see how it looks when I am carrying it. Maybe this will be my Spring bag 🌸(I have the seasonal subscription).

  25. I forgot to add that the photos taken from above are very helpful. After all it is the way we see them every day as we carry them.

  26. My first bag has shipped from CA but is taking the slow boat here so will be a week and a half before I get it. Very excited for my first one. I’d be very happy with this bag although I specified cross body or backpack only. Your bag looks very nice for being faux leather. I wouldn’t tell from the photos that its not real leather. I really like the color.

    • I am also waiting for my 1st bag. It still says label created. I can’t wait to see what they picked for me!

    • Mine still says pending. I’m excited to see which bag I’ll get. I certainly have favorites, and I hope I was clear enough in my style survey.

      • Will be interesting to see what we all get. Please post when you receive.

      • Mine has said label created since the 21st, but no movement. Really?

      • I just emailed them about that. Let’s see what they say.

      • Thanks lunalee. I emailed two days ago but no response.

      • Ok, I got this message back, they have been good at replying to me:

        We are in the process of packing up all boxes and sending them out today! Yours should be apart of this and the number will be active later today 🙂


    • Mine is taking forever too! One day it traveled from OK to PA, and the next from one town to another that was 10 minutes away!

  27. Cute bag and great deal! This one looks like a winner.
