Ivory Clasp Handbag Subscription Review + Coupon – July 2017
When you sign up, you’ll fill out the Ivory Clasp questionnaire, letting their stylists know what patterns, colors, materials, and shapes you prefer in the bags you buy. Shortly thereafter, you’ll get a designer bag picked to match your preferences—and a new bag to add to your collection each subsequent month!
I’ve been getting this subscription for a few months now and have had mostly hits, but I went back and retook my style questionnaire to try to hone things even more. My one “miss” of a bag from Ivory Clasp was a Betsey Johnson style—there are things I still really love about that brand’s aesthetic, but to be honest, I haven’t gone out and bought a Betsey Johnson piece in years. Looking back at my questionnaire, I realize I had noted Betsey Johnson as one of the brands I’ve shopped before on my profile quiz! I wanted to cover all my bases in terms of communicating the bounds of my aesthetic (and I do sometimes like novel designs like hers), but I took that off. I also updated a few other categories, based on what my tastes are feeling like moving into summer. I recommend doing the same “refresh” every so often, or especially if you get something that feels so-so instead of spectacular.

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.
Bonus Item: Hanalei Sugar Lip Scrub, 0.17 oz. Sample Size – Value $4.36 (Buy a full-size, 0.78 oz. version for $20.00)
This same bonus item came in my May box! So far, all of my Ivory Clasp bonus gifts have been from Hanalei, which makes beauty products with natural ingredients. This scrub isn’t too scrubby (the crystals are very fine), so it feels more like a moisturizing treatment than an all-out scrub. But it has a sweet, citrusy scent and left my lips feeling happy and soft.
There’s a coupon for Hanalei, too!
Nanette Quilted Crossbody Bag in Black – Value $69.00?
How charming! I love small bags that I can swing around my shoulder when I’m out dancing or adventuring through town. Bebe currently lists a similar looking bag also under the name Nanette, so I’m guessing they reimagined it a bit from what we have here. I linked to the new bag above for a value reference, but I kind of like this simple, sophisticated bag.
The strap is removable, so I can carry this faux leather bag as a clutch, or use it as a wallet inside a tote if I wanted.
I also really appreciate all of the pockets inside. It’s built like a wallet, so there are card slots, a zippered section, and general space for dumping your things. I can fit my (6 Plus) phone inside this bag, no problem, but I bet if I try to put more than a few other odds and ends in there (maybe a lip gloss a container of mints and my keys), things will get kind of cramped. The good news? The magnetic snap is really strong and secure!
Plus, black and gold are my colors! I love this combo—it goes with everything, and so does this bag!
Verdict: What a great pick from Ivory Clasp! The subscription costs $45.00 (plus free standard U.S. shipping), which seems fair given the estimated value of the bag. This bag is right up my alley in terms of what I’d look for in a purse, so I’m very pleased. If you haven’t been getting quite what you expected from this subscription, I highly recommend re-taking your questionnaire. Ivory Clasp was already doing a really great job, but honing things, even more, can’t hurt!
