Great little crossbody purse!
I've been using my Frannie for a just under a month, and have been using it everywhere. Mine is in lemon parfait! First off let me say I'm a mom, and I adore this style. I use this purse all the time now as my go to purse when I'm going out to do shopping, walking around town, and when I take my 4 yr. old out! I love it! I have great big purses by expensive designer brands, but every now and then I just want something that's comfortable, stylish, and hands free! This is great! I can fit in my cell phone, keys, wallet, a pull-up, and it's great for all little other accessories! I even fit my Michael Kors make up bag in this purse! ;) This is great when you don't want to be weighed down by a large purse or shoulder bag, and the nicest thing of all is that the Frannie can be converted into a shoulder purse by simply making the strap smaller! I'll live in the Midwest so it's cold and snowy out here right now, and it goes over all of my winter coats! Not to mention the nice pattern just brightens up all dreary winter gear! Not just for a young tween, but moms and ladies on the go everywhere! :)

Small, but Mighty!
Although this bag super small and has no organizational compartments inside or out, it's a winner. It allows you to take your essentials: phone, a small wallet (I recommend the Campus Double ID), a coin purse along with another small pouch or two, keys with room to spare. I carry a larger bag with me and this bag is able to hold everything I normally carry without a problem. Also, the convertible strap is so handy that this bag is essentially a two-fer! So whether you're a commuter on the metro, out shopping with friends at a crowded mall, or roaming the streets where you live, this bag is the perfect size to take along with you and still keep you organized.
Ps. If you are a person who does need a bigger bag (like a tote), this bag is the perfect size to tuck inside of it, so you can grab and go later on!

Cute and Convenient
I think the Frannie bag is often overlooked and underrated. Sure they’re small – so small that they have no interior pockets – but they are cute, convenient, full of character, and well, for a Vera, pretty cheap. I have Frannie in two different patterns (Provencal and Lime’s Up) and use them both a lot. Frannie is big enough to easily hold my VB Euro Wallet, Double Eyeglass Case and Samsung Galaxy phone (i.e. my bare essentials) with a little room to spare. It’s the bag I take when I don’t want to carry much around or when I already have a tote full of things to haul. This most often happens for work. I work in a large corporate campus and when I go for a walk or to get some lunch, I don’t really want to carry a larger bag. Frannie is also good for that pattern you really love but think looks a little too loud in a bigger piece. I definitely recommend this bag and plan to collect more in the future.

I am 13 and as soon as I got the Frannie, I fell in love!!! It is great because it can be worn as crossbody or a small shoulder purse. Mine is in Lilli Bell. This product feels like it's made very well and I love the ruffles!!! It fits a decent amount of things for a hands free outing. I fit my wallet, phone in the zip ID case, lotion, tissues, ipod, and many other things!!! I recently went to a big picnic and saw no less then 20 women and girls wearing the Frannie in all styles and colours!! :-) Great item.

Great Cross-body or Shoulder Bag. Love It :o)
I bought this purse in Tutti Frutti at a local store where I live on Aug 8th and carried it to the fair the next day. I got everything I needed for the day in it. It was light and VERY easy to carry. Love this purse

If I could give this 10 stars I would!
I can't say enough about this bag. I have used it everyday since I received it! It is the perfect size for a quick trip to the store, to a friends house, on a trip, or any time you just don't want or need to carry a big bag. This fits my full size wallet, glasses, keys, brush, phone and still has room for small items. (Like lipstick etc.). I can fit my handy capped parking tag in it. I think everyone needs this small gem.

LOVE, LOVE this purse! :o)
Got this bag for Christmas and it is so cute! Holds a VB Coin Purse, lip gloss, pads, tampons, pocket mirror, cell phone, travel tissues, and hair ties! Great for going to movies and little car trips! Mine is in Ribbons! :)

Just so so - want the AMY back!
This bag is just okay. Honestly, I think the pleating makes it look very old-ladyish and dated. Why they EVER got rid of the Amy bag is beyond me. It's shape, so simple and unadorned, made it the ultimate errand running bag. The dog-leash clip on the one side of the Amy made it versatile and was a great style design. I didn't care for the adjustable strap on the Frannie either. It was funky and looked like it was going to start to fray or the stitching was starting to get loose. All in all, wish they had the Amy still. This is not a good replacement,

Great for a night out or everyday!
I bought this bag on vacation so I could just throw a coin purse with my id and credit cards and my camera in. It holds SO MUCH! I just purchased the All in One Wristlet and can fit that inside as a wallet and still have room for my camera as well as chapstick and a few other misc. items. I love big bags, but sometimes I don't want to lug around everything. This was great for vacation and has become my new favorite go to bag!! I wish it was just a little bit bigger, as sometimes It can be difficult to get the All in One Wristlet out, however I that doesn't deter me from using it! Can't wait to get it in some of the new patterns!!!
