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 July 2018

Republic of Aces Indio Saddle Shoulder Bag (Camel) – Retail Value $108

Dimensions: 9 1/2″ L x 3″ W x 7 1/2″ H with a 20” Adjustable shoulder strap

Our take on the popular saddle silhouette, the Indio Saddle Shoulder is the compact carryall to covet. Sleek leather meets gilded hardware and intricate whip-stitching and fringe details—voilà, the perfect festival bag.

This faux leather bag is perfect for summer – it’s well constructed, on trend, and seems fairly durable (passed the fingernail scratch test). The fringe gives the bag a playful feel, and I love the black on camel color combination. The fringe has more of a suede feel – giving this bag life into the fall season.

The bag is fully lined in a black and white patterned fabric (unsure of the composition – I’d guess cotton) and features a hidden magnetic snap-flap closure. The website says that it features an interior zip compartment and two slip pockets – but my bag only seems to feature the zip pocket.

My husband wasn’t home to take a photo of me with this bag, so here it is worn cross-body in a selfie to help you gauge size.

The Verdict: This month I let Ivory Clasp select the bag for me. I did take a look at the selections available during the choice period but as I’ve said before, the bags have been the same for several months and I already have picked out the ones that I really wanted. In the value department, this bag retails for $108, and I paid $49 with the subscription – which seems fair if you trust the “retail” price on these private label brands. I’m getting a little bored with the selection, and have plenty of handbags right now – nothing is really exciting me and making me want to continue to subscribe. I wish there were more brand choices that I know and love, and that the inventory changed more frequently so that it didn’t feel like you’re picking from your second choices from the previous month.

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, and I received a bag valued at $108.00 – a savings of about 55% off retail.

Colette’s subscription addiction started innocently enough with a few beauty boxes in 2013. As her life has evolved, so have her subscriptions – and some of her favorites now include boxes that cater towards lifestyle (Popsugar Must Have), pets (BarkBox), and children (Gap Outfit Box and Mac & Mia).

  1. Wait – who is actually paying for this? You? MSA? The company?

    Your post indicates “My Subscription Addiction received this box for review purposes.” Yet later you mention that you paid $49 for the sub.

    Can you please clarify who paid for the box? Thank you.

  2. I sent my mom this bag in the fall last year it doesn’t look like they’ve changed their selection since then. She does love it though.

  3. I got a couple of bags from Ivory Clasp. Aside from selection issue, half of the purses offered retail for half the subscription price. The second time there wasn’t a single purse that retailed over $50. I cancelled.

  4. Nice review Colette! I am totally there with you about the choices that Ivory has been offering up and their inventory hasn’t changed. I received a Republic of Aces bucket bag a while ago and the lining is the same (I think that’s their “signature”) and it’s super sturdy and high quality ( I put my bags thru the ringer).
    Reading your review and noticing that I’m not the only one experiencing the lack of variety, I’m gonna pause my subscription for now and wait a few months to resume. Hopefully then they’ll have some newer things.

    • Thanks for the feedback! Yes, I think I’m going to pause for a bit as well. I love the concept still though!
