I bought this bag in Very Berry Paisley last year when I was travelling alot and also wanted a cute cross the shoulder bag for summer that was lightweight. This bag is perfect for when you are in a hurry and need your hands free and for organization with the inside pocket and two outside pockets. I can either just grab my wallet, phone, and keys and run out the door or I can pack it full of my travel essentials and papers, snacks, sunglasses, and camera. It is great for everything you could think of. I love this bag and will probably get another one for this summer too! It is versitile enough that I don't feel like I have to change bags all the time- it works for just running around town or for looking a little nicer.

Slim & Stylish for the Shopper or Subway traveler!
The HIPSTER is amazing! It is extremely easy for the shopper who wants to be hands free when shopping at the grocery store or in a big department store. It is highly practical for the subway traveler getting on and off trains with many people. The strap can be used for a purse look or a cross body expereience. The many pockets provide easy access to your phone and keep everything else organized. I'll sum it up in this acrostic poem...Hands free Indestructible Purse that Stores Together Everything so that you are always Ready to go and have everything that you need!

great for school but don't pack it full
I use it everyday at school. Very recently it started to speckle on the strap and started the thread was getting fuzzy and weak because I packed it full. I have only had it for about 2 months. I am kinda sad but I sized-down the amount it carries so it isn't in stress. I think it's very stylish and can have many uses.

I bought this bag a few months ago, and I absolutely love it!! It's perfect for carrying bigger things like books and Kindles. I can also fit in my phone, lip gloss, mirror, hair brush, lotion, and other necessities. It's very spacious, so thats always good. And I still have room for other things! So basically this purse is great!!

Many college football stadiums will allow handbags up to a certain size. That's why I LOVE this bag! It's as big as the maximum size and it holds EVERYTHING I need to take into the game…money, sunglasses, keys, sunscreen, phone and my husbands stuff. I attend games for two different schools. New Vera objective, two Hipsters in coordinating school colors!

Wonderful Everyday Bag!
I am in love with the Hipster! First, I love that it is crossbody, so I don't have to worry about it or hang on to it all day. I just put it on and I'm hands- and worry-free. It carries plenty for me to use it as an everyday bag.
What I carry:
- Day planner
- Kindle (with the keys on the bottom -- not full keyboard)
- Cell phone
- Vera Bradley Euro Wallet
- Small bottle of glasses cleaner and cloth
- Small pill holder for aspirin
- Work keys
- A couple of pens
All of these things fit without making the Hipster bulky. I could fit more if I wouldn't be bothered by the bag bulging. As is, it stays pretty slim. I love that I can fit all of these things in the bag, but the bag isn't enormous so I don't feel like I'm lugging a bulky bag during the day.
The only thing that I can't carry in the Hipster that I can carry in my larger purses is my sunglasses. They're prescription, so I keep them in a bulky case so they don't get damaged. But I think that a pair of sunglasses (and definitely reading glasses) could fit in the Hipster if they weren't in a case.

My go to purse
I have this bag in Mocha Rouge, Canyon and a newer pattern (don't recall the name#. Love this bag. It sits comfortably across my body on my right shoulder and sits neatly and closely to my left hip. And I love that it leaves my hands free to carry other things and do things that are awkward at best with a regular shoulder bag.
Despite the lack of great depth #keeps it from being bulky# it carries plenty: my wallet #have the matching wallets in MR and C#, calendar, phone, a rescue inhaler, car charger, pens, keys, sunglasses and other small necessities nicely. The colors make me happy and are lovely. The larger, zippered pocket that goes against my body is perfect for keeping things secure.
The open pocket on the front is great for my phone and the smaller zippered pocket holds lip balm, ear phones. My only problem is that when I put pens in the inside open pockets, they "catch" my wallet or other items if I'm jamming them in the purse in a hurry #like at a cash register#, but they work for my rosary, tiny flash light, etc.
It looks like VB is discontinuing this design and that's sad...it's just such a nice, compact, handy bag and comfortable to wear and use. I've seen other ladies with different patterns/colors quite a lot around.

I bought this in bittersweet and its great! the size is perfect. Small enough you can use it for everyday, when you need a small purse to put a few items in, and when you travel. The inside is more spacious than I would have expected from a bag like this. Most cross body bags are tight on space and lack pockets, but not this one. This bag does not disappoint, not to mention Vera Bradley colors are always vibrate!
