Holds the essentials plus a few more items
I love small crossbody purses and this one is adorable! Lizzie is just right for the essentials plus a few more items than the tiny bags such as the little hip bag and wristlets can hold. If you like the size of the mini-hipster but want a new style, you'll probably like this bag. Lizzie holds a tad more all total than the mini-hipster due to its being a little thicker front to back than the mini-hipster, and its added outside front pocket. It's not as thick or as rigid as Rachel and lies flatter, but not quite as flat as the mini-hipster.
Lizzie has a clear ID window under the front pocket flap and a good sized zip pocket on the back with six card slots, so it does not need a separate wallet or card case. It also has two slip pockets inside the main compartment. It holds the essentials (credit cards, ID, phone, keyring, room key card, lip gloss) plus a few additional items such as small camera, sunglasses, check book, small hand sanitizer, and compact but not much more. The strap is adjustable for wearing crossbody or regular carry. I like the tiny little hip bag for travel and day trips, but Lizzie is large enough for routine use when I want to carry just a few more items. It is NOT a regular sized purse and is not for those who can't get by with just the basics! I love this little bag and wish it was available in very berry paisley.

The BEST you could ever find in a small purse
The Lizzie is, by far, the BEST purse in the colletion. If you want a small purse that is not bulky but is loaded with compartments, this is definitely the purse you will love. The newer version; the Clare, does not compare with the Lizzie. It is the only purse that has an ID slot inside the front magnetic flap along with a large pocket. Behind that flap pocket is an open pocket for a phone etc. The back side has a large zippered compartment that easily holds a cell phone or camera and has SIX card pockets and can hold change. The inside main zippered compartment has two more large pockets and a large interior that holds your personal items. There a total of TWELVE compartments in the small, but roomy purse. PLEASE Vera Bradley; don't replace the Lizzie. You have nothing else like it and everyone I know rates it their favorite purse of all. I'm sure it costs more to make with all of the compartments, but it is well worth charging more for the beauty and convenience of this purse!!

I just love the way Lizzy was designed, Its a very smart design, very well organized, just the right amount of pockets, main compartment zippered for security , back pocket for credit cards with zipper facing your body , for security, that was very smart and very easy access to your cards. Going through the line in a store and this little Lizzy leaves you with out having to fumble to dig your wallet out and feeling rushed through the line to have to put it back in your purse. Its all right there, no digging!! I was able to not only have a place for my license but room for a pack of gum, chap stick , Advil and allergy meds. cough drops, being the season for all this. Pens and business cards my phone charger and glasses , keys and if needed my cell phone fits in the easy accesses pocket in the front. This world is full of gadgets and this has a place for it all, and in a very nice sized little purse and nothing falls out.
