Ivory Clasp Handbag Review + Coupon – October 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 October 2018
If you read my review of last month‘s bag, you’ll see that I choose a similar one this month:
Fly Sky Blush Satchel
Dimensions: 14″ L x 6″ W x 10″ H
Weight: 2lbs, 6oz
The blush faux leather (I assume PU) is accented by gold stitching and feels sturdy and like it will hold its shape.
The metal accents like the zipper, zipper pulls, and strap hooks are a shiny gunmetal gray which contrasts well with the lighter blush shade. BTW, the entire satchel zips closed so no “brake dump” in the car in traffic. You know what I’m talking about, right?
A long, adjustable shoulder strap is included so you can carry this satchel by the handles or over your shoulder. A small zipper pocket is hidden in the back.
I love that there is a big pocket on the outside that closes with a magnetic snap. This is usually where I stow my phone and other quick access items.
This thing is so roomy inside (perfect for work). There are two big compartments separated by a large zipper divider. One side has small pockets and the other has a larger zipper pocket. Everything is lined with this cotton blend stripe fabric. My only complaint here is that the bottom of the lining isn’t attached to the outer part of the purse, so it kind of free floats around in there.
The bottom of this satchel is stiff and covered in a tougher (but matching) material than the sides. It stands on its own which is another reason it’s a great work bag.
Here’s how it looks on:
The Verdict: I can’t wait to switch my little backpack for my Ivory Clasp pick this month. I love structured styles and being able to carry my entire life with me when I leave home. This bag fits my essentials plus a book or tablet, a tape measure, 30 pens, my dog’s leash and whatever else ends up in there throughout the week. The only identifying brand factor is the paper hang tag; there is no logo marking on the bag at all. Fly Sky as a brand doesn’t have a lot of info available online, so I don’t know the exact value of this particular bag. It feels well made and sturdy and I think it will hold its shape for the duration of our time together. I’m happy with my choice and the quality of the purse I got for $49. I’m thinking I might let Ivory Clasp pick my next bag for me (even though I love the option to choose) just to see what happens. What do you think?
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. Since I can’t find exact pricing on this bag, I’ll put the value right on par with what I’d find at TJMaxx for a similar bag.
