Ivory Clasp A.V.I. Gemma Mini Duffel Review + Coupon – May 2018
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. In addition to answering questions, you’ll go through several screens of “select the bags you’d be happy to get” to provide even more specific information about what you’d like to receive.
When your curation is ready, they will send you an e-mail giving you a few days to select the specific bag that you wish to receive. If you do not select a bag, their stylists will select one for you and you’ll get to be surprised.

Ivory Clasp Handbag Subscription for May 2018
A. V. I. Gemma Mini Duffel in Mink – Retail Value $68
This beautiful taupe, vegan leather mini-satchel style bag features brushed silver hardware, an attachable adjustable shoulder strap, and a 5” handle drop. It measures about 8” h x 12” w x 5” d, feels durable and well made, and the leather does not seem to scratch easily.
With its boxy shape, it’s no surprise how roomy it is inside. I easily fit a large wallet, keys, phone, makeup, and other essentials with room to spare. It’s cool, neutral tone is perfect for spring/summer. It’s structured, making it work appropriate and gave me a polished feel when I carried it.
The bag is fully lined with a soft material, in a navy and white herringbone pattern. There is a zipper pocket and an open pocket to help you stay organized. The front pocket was perfect to hold my phone for easy access.
From the images above, you can see that the bag came well wrapped, and included a tag detailing some key information about the back. I like that it’s vegan leather!
Two of the top handles of the bag feature an additional D-ring, making it easy to attach the included strap. I think this bag lends itself better as a hand-held bag, but do appreciate the option to wear it cross-body or as a shoulder bag if I choose to.
Here I am with the bag to give you an idea of scale.
The Verdict: This is a beautiful bag and I’m very happy with my Ivory Clasp subscription this month. I liked that I got to pick just what I wanted, but admit that I’ve never heard of this brand before. I think it’s a good quality piece, and with a retail value of $68, it’s well worth the $49 subscription. I wish there were more brand choices that I know and love, and not so many private label options.
The inventory doesn’t seem to change much from month to month either, and there are pros and cons to that. The good news is if you want more than one bag, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to pick it the following month. The bad news is if you don’t want any of the listed bags this month – you might be out of luck for a few months until their inventory changes a bit!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can definitely still sign up, but what bag you get depends on what you enter into your style profile and what’s available. There’s no guarantee that you’ll get to pick this same look, but you might get something else that’s just your style!
Value Breakdown: Ivory Clasp costs $49.00 per month including free shipping, and I received a bag valued at $68.00 – a savings of 28% off retail.
