Nella Bella- Ivy Nu Moon handbag from Holiday 2012 Collection

Looking for a holiday gift under $50? Well, I have got the perfect gift idea for you. Its an oversized clutch by Nella Bella called Ivy, which is launched exclusively as part of the Holiday 2012 collection. I love the glossy finish and the detachable chain that adds to the holiday spirit. This is my first Nella Bella handbag and I am so  excited to share it with you.
Let's move on to the pictures and my experience.

Nella Bella- Ivy Nu Moon in Black

It comes in a dust bag! Great for storage..

It has magnetic snap closures that keeps the flap cover secure

This is what it looks like from the inside

Nella Bella is a Canadian brand offering handbags and fashion accessories made with vegan materials (Sorry leather fans) Its called Ivy and is made with a material called Nu Moon, which I am totally unaware of, but knowing that its vegan and has a nice texture and shine to it, I think its a great alternative. The finishing of this clutch is also good. It looks well crafted and lives up to the "high quality" claim of Nella Bella.
The flap, however, gets pressed down while using and feels like there's some plastic sheet underneath. I dont like that crunchy feel of it. I like my bags to feel soft and cushiony. Moreover, I fear it will cause a crease on the top of the clutch but the material seems to resist creasing.
Described as the perfect clutch for day and evening use, the size of this clutch makes it great to carry a wallet, cell phone, a book/ereader and a minimilastic cosmetic bag. The inner zip pocket is also great for extra storage, however, I feel it misses out on inner pockets for cell phone or keys.

Overall, I like this clutch. Its practical and versatile. The textured glossy exterior gives it a stylish edge and the chain adds to the high end feel. I think it also makes a great holiday gift and priced at just $49 this clutch is really a steal. Ivy Nu Moon comes in six gorgeous colors, so you can surely find the one that's right for you.  Don't forget to check out www.nella-bella.com for a variety of styles at affordable prices!
