I first purchased this in Night and Day. I had never used a "clutch" purse before. I was tired of dragging a huge purse around everywhere, but I needed something for my essentials. When I could fit my blackberry, lip gloss, money, bankcard, and my house key (I just take the one key off the key ring and zip it in the coin holder) I bought two more in Suzani and Rhythm and Blues.
For me, this is the perfect clutch purse. The sides are just squishy enough to give you a little room, but small enough to carry in your hand. It's so nice to not have to worry about finding a hanger for my purse at a bar, or hanging my purse on the back of my chair at a restaurant. And shopping is so much nicer with out that added weight on my shoulder.
Simple, easy and pretty. Great little clutch.

In love with these
I have had 2 myself and the only reason, I bought another was I was tired of the print. I have caught these on sale and have some hoarded back. I love to give them as gifts. Lots of compartments and plenty of room for cards.

Favorite Wallet I have ever owned!
I am writing this review to hopefully change the thought of VB to discontinue this wallet style. It is so functional, especially when you are shopping with children. You can keep it in your purse, getting out cash, change and cards easily, which is a much safer way to shop. I have given it as a gift to many different aged women and they all feel the same way...it is the best wallet they have ever owned. I have backups preparing for a time I may not be able to get it. I hope this may change the mind of the powers to be at VB.

Have had mine for 4 years!
I purchased one of these 4 years ago and i am still using it! It is by far the best wallet I have ever purchased and it has held up to everyday abuse. It has just started to come unstitched where the credit cards are held, but with any other wallet I expect this would have happened much, much sooner. Well worth the money, and I am getting ready to purchase another!

I've carried it for 6 months, now ...
Many years ago I left the "standard wallet" world to carry only the simplest of coin purses. A very small coin pouch- just enough room for ID, 2 credit cards and cash, stashing all my other cards in another small one that i rarely pulled out. It was wonderful! I decided to give this wallet a try and I have enjoyed the two main compartments - separating the two types of cards/cash. However, the kiss lock seems to have worn out. I can't count how many times I hear coins rattling in the bottom of my purse because it didn't close well and the contents spilled out. So I'm reconsidering where to go ...

I am addicted! Best clutch/wallet ever!
I have never ever written a review for any product! I recently purchased this clutch in very berry Paisley, just for fun and am completely hooked! I use it as my everyday wallet and even purchased 2 more in day and night and happy snails (to match my bowler purse. Besides the usual suspects (i.d., credit card, atm card, etc), as a mom I have a TON of those annoying store cards! I also carry our insurance cards, AAA, Costco, and on and on and on. The side with the i.d. holder is where I shove all the "junk" cards, business cards, gift cards, etc. On the other side I use the zip for my coins and money. The six card holders hold the cards I use the most . AND then if you need more room the open space on both sides holds misc papers, stamps, etc! I can't say enough. I hope they don't continue this item...I think my collection has just begun. If I empty the "junk" cards out my galaxy phone fits and it can be used as a clutch! The most amazing product every!!

Brilliantly designed wallet
After deciding on the Laura tote, I wanted a wallet to go with it. There were several features I was looking for - wide enough that I wouldn't have to fold my cash, a coin compartment, several credit card slots, plenty of room for receipts. I opened and looked at every wallet they had. This one fit my criteria.
I've owned this wallet now for a couple of months, and it is my absolute favorite wallet I've ever owned! One side features a zippered compartment where I keep coins, six credit card slots, and a roomy enough interior for my unfolded cash and checkbook. The other side has a windowed driver's license pocket (and, yes, the hinge opens widely enough that the widow can be viewed without removing the driver's license), a large pocket where I keep stamps and business cards, a pocket for a large card (I keep my gym key card there), and a roomy interior that I keep all my receipts in (with an accountant hubby, we keep EVERY receipt).
If something happened to my wallet today, I would immediately go get the same identical wallet. It is perfect and I wouldn't change a thing!

Smart and Classy Clutch!
I can't get enough of this wallet. I bought it in 5 different patterns. My favorite patterns in this wallet are Very Berry Paisley and Camellia. Not only does this clutch fit my credit cards and cash, I can also fit my iPhone, a vera bradley pen (the skinny pen) and lipstick. I noticed that the clutch is not offered in the new colors, I hope it is not being discontinued. The clutch is so smart and classy. I have one request, please make this clutch into a two-in-one by adding very slim chain handles that can be worn on the shoulder or hand-held...

Vera's Best Wallet Yet !!!
I love this wallet! I have it in 4 patterns now and will be ordering Tea Garden. It has room for all your credit cards, cash, plus my small reader glasses and my iPhone. I carry it as a clutch very often. It is very stylish and sleek, not bulky at all as many in the line are quite fat and bulky. Many of the other wallets have a wrap around zipper which I find to be cumbersome and you need space and time to get into them. The only improvement I would recommend would be a more user friendly change compartment. I don't see the "Clutch Wallet" in any of the new patterns and this worries me. Vera Please Don't Discontinue This Wallet. It is the best!!!
