I'd almost written Ashley M off as a fashion line. It seemed like the label was incapable of creating anything I took too seriously. And then it released the Mag Fashion clutch.
What a change of pace this purse is. There are no pop culture figures covering it, no sequins or bows. It's a dramatic departure for the label that tends to favor kitsch design over the contemporary. Despite its cheap and cheerful materials, this is one stylish little number.
Its beige synthetic body is set off with tiny perforated flowers. You wouldn't know they're flowers from a distance, but up close the pattern adds a bit of interest. The Mag Fashion clutch is completed with a large O ring with a stylish weathered wood grain finish. I'm not so sure about it in the red wine color, but in beige I think Ashley M has gotten it right.
The Mag Fashion clutch's modern good looks are complemented by a very practical design. It's relatively large by clutch standards, but the organizational pockets make that space easier to manage. So does the attachable chain strap, which helps the Mag Fashion convert from a clutch to a cross-body purse in seconds.
The rock bottom $44 price tag seals the deal for me. It's taken some time, but I think Ashley M has finally created a purse to impress serious fashion lovers.
