Ivory Clasp comes packaged in a big, but still cleanly designed box. Inside, the bag is tissue-wrapped and topped with a few informational cards from the company. There’s a signed thank you from the Ivory Clasp stylist…
…and some information on the subscription.
There’s a bonus item in every box. Last month, I got something from this Hanalei brand, too—a lip scrub. This month, it’s a lip treatment, which is sort of like a lip balm in tube form. The formula comes out thick and has a slight medicinal scent to it. According to the website, the treatment contains shea butter, as well as agave and grapeseed oil for antioxidant power.
The treatment tastes sweet on my lips. It takes a long time to fully sink in—since it’s not sticky in the least, I liked that it lasted as long as it did. It truly feels like I’m treating my dry lips to their own personal spa day. It has the same nourishing, soothing effect that a drugstore lip balm might have, but I like that this formula is made with lots of natural ingredients, and is cruelty-free and paraben free!
WITH212 “The Astor” Tote Bag – Value $118.00
Wow, what a great pick from Ivory Clasp! I guess the preferences I set when I started my subscription captured my love for neutrals and a cool, modern aesthetic because this bag is dead on. It’s made of faux leather, but it’s much less stiff and artificial feeling than a lot of faux-leather bags I’ve owned in the past. The body of the tote, which is made of a single layer of faux leather, has the flopsy, supple feeling of a boho bag. The structure is a little bit casual and a little carefree. And it’s super spacious. It’s 12″ tall, 16.5″ wide, and has 6″ of depth.
My only real problem with the bag is that the perforated details don’t continue to the back side of the bag, which is smooth. I would’ve liked it to continue all the way around.
It’s also not lined. I kind of wish it was, but I also see that it’s not really necessary given the design (with the tiny holes peeping through).
Speaking of which, I really like these little crisscrossing perforations. I love summer, but I’m not the type to sport the boho dresses and woven totes that seem to take over stores this time of year. This ivory bag goes much better with my black tee shirts and jeans than a boho summer tote, but the perforations give it the tiniest bit of beachy flair. It’s still super seasonal—it’s just more of a peep toe shoe than a pair of strappy sandals. In other words, it’s very me.
Verdict: I love the bag Ivory Clasp picked for me this month! The subscription costs $45.00 (plus free standard U.S. shipping), which is less than half of the retail cost of the bag. I also got a bonus lip treatment, which has been keeping my lips very happy. I feel like I’m definitely getting my money’s worth from this subscription this month! I love how practical this bag is, as well as how beautifully it matches my taste. It’s as if they translated the idea of the typical summer beach bag to match my style. I can see myself using this bag for everything from toting my laptop around to carrying yoga clothes or even packing supplies for a picnic.
