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 December 2018
This month, I selected a bag that included a clutch. Two for one! Let's see how it looks!
Aolisi Laser Cut Black Tote with Clutch- Retail Value $32
*I couldn't find this color online, but I found the Gray Beige version of this on Amazon which is what I used for retail value.
Tote Dimensions: 18″ L x 6.5" W x 16″ H + 8" shoulder drop
Clutch Dimensions: 8.5″ L x 2" W x 5″ H
Metallic gold peeks through the die cuts in the smooth, black faux leather of this tote. I was worried this effect would look cheap, but I think it is well done and looks nice. The simple gold hardware keeps the look from being too busy. The removable strap hooks to rings on each side and can be adjusted from 41-47" long. I'm not sure what the YOL on the decorative tag stands for but it's cute.
I wish the bottom had feet to prevent wear. Maybe I can find some to attach...
The back is simple and has a zippered pocket for quick access items. I almost always slide my phone in here to keep it separated from my keys.
Inside is nice and roomy with a zipper pocket on one side and two open pockets on the other side. It's lined with a black and white stripe muslin and trimmed in faux leather. The whole purse zips closed which is a big plus for preventing "purse dump" in the car.
Here it is worn both with the removable long strap and with the handles. I like having both options.
I selected this tote for 2 reasons. First, I wore my previous black tote to the point that my mom intervened and suggested I replace it (it was looking rough). Thanks for the style check, ma! Second, I like that it comes with a matching clutch. It has the same die cut leather look as the tote but no gold underneath. The hardware and lining are the same shiny gold.
Magnetic snaps keep the flap closed and it comes with a detachable wrist strap. The interior has a zipper pocket dividing it into two slots. My phone fits perfectly into either one to keep it separated from other items. Also, here's an awesome feature I'm just realizing now – there are two rings on either side so you can attach the long strap from the tote. It's a clutch, wristlet, or crossbody bag! Talk about versatile.
The Verdict: This month, I couldn't pass on this tote when Ivory Clasp sent my selection email. It's not as fun as last month's hot pink mini satchel, but it's something I'll get lots of use out of. Plus, it came with the super versatile little bag! I'm happy with the quality and I think the structured style will hold up well, even with the abuse I tend to inflict on my bags. Though I found a different color of this purse on Amazon for less, I'm still happy with what I received for a cost of $49.
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. I couldn't find this exact purse online (though I did find a different color), but the quality seems right on par with what I'd purchase for this price at a store.
