Best Vera Innovation Ever!
I am a huge fan of crossbody purses and have a Clare, a Frannie, 3 Lizzys, and a Mini Hipster. All of Vera's crossbodies are well designed and have room for all your neccesities. After visually admiring the Hipster for a while, but contemplating if it would be too large (as all my crossbodies were on the smaller side), I took the plunge and purchased one in Floral Nightingale. Let me just say that I was very pleasantly suprised, and found the Hipster to be almost custom made for my needs! The front zippered pocket is absolutely the perfect size for an iPhone and the added security is a relief. The slip pocket behind the zippered one is great for holding quick access items like pens and pencils, (horizontally is perfect) and gum. The zip pocket on the back is nice for feminine products or even a small wallet like the Snappy Wallet, which I have. The inside slip pockets fit a small B&BW lotion, tissues, hand sanitizer, hair ties, braces wax, spare contacts, contact case, and more small items I can fit in! The main pocket is very spacious, and I can even fit a couple of paperback books or a water bottle inside! My suspicions about it being too big were absolutely wrong, as I would actually say that is the best size out of all my crossbodies for my neccesities! I love the trim on the sides, as it makes it very visually appealing as well. It's perfect to take to school, sports games, shopping and more. I cannot wait to get another in Indigo Pop on July 10th when the new fall patterns come out!

I've had my Very Bradley Hipster for a year now. I have worn this crossbody everyday to school and it's just now getting worn out. As far as capacity, currently I carry my phone, wallet, 3 oz Bath and Body works lotion, two different containors of chapstick, iPod 5th Gen, mascara, phone charger, iPod charger, gift cards, school I.D, gum, brush, pads (the zipper on the back is perfect for this), pens and pencils for school, and even something sweet to tame my cravings. It's very convenient to have right beside me at all times, especially with textbooks and my binder, I won't have to worry about it being in the way.
Love it, love it, love it. I don't go anywhere without it. It's just that great!

Great Crossbody Bag!
I love my hipsters! I own two (happy snails & mocha rouge). They are a good size and hold quite a bit. Mine tend to get dirty because I use them a lot but it is very easy to wash it and comes out good as new. I don't like regular purses because they are too difficult to have to carry around so I prefer the crossbody style because it is always on my side with easy access. My favorite part of the hipster is the non-zipper pocket in the front which is PERFECT to slide my iPhone in and out of. The price is a bit high but its totally worth it!
