Ivory Clasp is a monthly women’s accessories subscription that’s all about clutches, totes, backpacks, and all things purses!

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.

Ivory Clasp Handbag Subscription for August 2018

Ivory Clasp August 2018 - Bag

Geometric Checker Crossbody Bag Clutch in Luminous

Unlike most of the bags offered by Ivory Clasp, this one doesn’t have any markings or tags with brand information. I found it online on wholesale purse websites but couldn’t access the pricing. I found a similar bag on Amazon for $23.99.

Dimensions: 11″ L x 2.75″ W x 7″ H

Ivory Clasp August 2018 - Detail

Ivory Clasp August 2018 - Zipper

When I was looking through the purses I could choose from, this one immediately stood out. I love the geometric pattern and oil-slick like coloring that shifts in the light. The gold chain is removable so I can carry this as a clutch or cross-body bag. The construction feels pretty sturdy. The vinyl geometric cutouts are attached to a mesh backing on the outside which give the bag a lot of flexibility.

Ivory Clasp August 2018 - Inside

The inside is a black crinkly fabric that is easily wipeable and is attached at the bottom. The one inside pocket is great for holding cards or tickets.

Ivory Clasp August 2018 - Phone

The generous size easily fits my large phone plus some basics like lip gloss, cards, and hand cream.

Ivory Clasp August 2018 - Worn

This purse is so cool! It seems to pick up whatever colors I’m wearing and changes intensity with the light. It’s a little floppy as a clutch unless it is filled up, which I have no problem doing. 🙂

Verdict: I’m really happy with my first pick from Ivory Clasp. I saw lots of styles I’d like, but the unique look of this one won me over. It concerns me a little that I can’t find any brand info but it seems to be well constructed and is holding up nicely. Since I don’t know that exact value of this particular purse, I’m going to go with the similar purse’s value of $23.99. That isn’t impressive compared to the cost of $49, but it was my choice. Next month, I’ll pay more attention to the details given on the selection page before choosing.

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 since I can’t find exact pricing for this purse, I’m going to go with a value of around $23.99 (similar bag). That means I possibly paid double the value of this bag. Not the smartest move on my part considering any of my other choices had a significantly higher value.

  1. i just checked my link and i only see four bags to choose from and they are all crossbody bags with fringe. what happened to the brand name bags they used to carry like maison du sac?

  2. Take a picture of the bag with your flash on. It will look like its glowing.

  3. I’ve seen this style of bag on amazon a lot. This company used to have unique purses, and started out with a really interesting concept. It’s really disappointing to see them go downhill and producing bags that might have suspect origins.

    • That’s what I thought too. It’s definitely a fake. There are tons of imitation BaoBao flooding AliBaba and Amazon. They probably got a bulk rate for super cheap. I’ve seen them as low as $15.

  4. You should reasonably expect that any handbag you pick has a value of $49 plus. I don’t think that is too much to ask. They used to guarantee their bags had a value of at least $100, but not any more. When I realized the only bag I liked was on sale for $23 (a nine west bag), I asked for a refund.

    • Did they give you the refund without a hassle?
