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!

tall and narrow
I dont like this at all, if there was a store nearby and had I seen this product I would not have purchased. If u are going to go this tall or this wide I think the villager is a better choice

I have this in Blue Lagoon(retired pattern). I LOVE the Hipster!!!! You can hold everything in it and the coolest thing is that you can slide your phone in the front open pocket. I might get another one of these!!! Thanks, Vera!!!

Adjustable Strap for Curvaceous Mom
As a busy, overweight working mother I rarely have time to enjoy the finer things in life. However, the Hipster has truly made my life easier. There is nothing like being able to throw a purse over your body and have your hands free to drink your hot coffee or drag a screaming child from the candy counter! There are plenty of easy access pockets in the front for tissues, gum wrappers, cell phones, and other mandatory "mom" things.
Many purses I have tried in the past do not comfortably cross my "generous curves," especially when I'm stuffed like a marshmallow into my winter coat. The versatility of the adjustable strap makes this product wonderful. The length of the Hipster can be changed with the seasons (winter coat vs. tank top) to match the amount of bulk it needs to cross.
I originally saw this purse online about a year ago, but was afraid to purchase it after buying a similar model at a "Big Box Store" that I never used. Recently, at a local store, I saw the "Heather" hipster and fell in love again. I tried it on with my jacket and without and was SO happy it fit comfortably both ways.
Thank you for making such a versatile cross body product that fits and adjusts to any size. The real working moms of the world truly appreciate your ingenuity.

Not too BIg
The Hipster is my all time favorite Vera bag. I purchased it in Blue Bayou just recently, and I am in love with it. It holds a lot, but doesnt get bulky.I love the pockets on the outside!

Love the versatility!
This purse is awesome! I can fit lots in it if I want (daily items and an Ipad). I love the pockets in the front, my phone fits perfect in the open one and it provides easy access. It looks great when I carry it, even if I overstuff it!

My all time favorite Vera Bradley purse
I LOVE this bag. It is so versatile. It is great for flying. I can put my passport and boarding pass in one of the outside pockets for easy access. I love having it on me instead of having to actually carry it.
I feel it is much safer than carrying a purse. I wish it was about 1 inch taller so I could zip my iPad in it.

I purchased this bag in the summer when the VB Outlet opened in Saint Louis and I'm so glad I did! It was an impulse buy because I usually carry the Tote or the Vera when I have class. However, I had many friends who loved this bag so I decided to try it out. It's probably one of my favorite VB items that I own! The bag is large enough to carry a big wallet (I carry turn-lock), my planner for school, a small cosmetic, and many more small items like a coin purse or loose things. The bag has two front pockets, one with a zipper and then a huge zipper pocket in the bag that fits tons more. It's the perfect bag for going shopping because you can keep your hands free and still carry everything you need in your bag! This bag is something every Vera lover should own and I am just sad I did not get one sooner! If you have an outlet in your area they usually have great deals and usually offer half off, so if you're apprehensive about the bag it will not cost you a ton to try it out! But I know you won't regret it!

Perfect for Middle Schoolers
I am in middle school (7th grade) and I am in love with this purse!!!! I got my first one on my 11th birthday and I bought another one a couple months after. This purse fits many things such as a water bottle, phone, wallet, keys, glasses case, iPad mini, Chapstick, money, and many other small things. I usually use this when shopping but I've seen many people use this in school and when traveling. I recommend this product to all my friends and family members.
