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!

This bag does has a slim profile and the main storage area is very deep. The inside has 3 slips pockets on the back side of the bag with the middle pocket slightly larger than the other two. The front of the bag has both a small zipper pocket and a small slip pocket which runs down to the bottom of the bag. The back of the bag has a fairly large and roomy zip pocket.
The bag does hold a lot, but not as much as some of my other bags. My biggest con on this bag is I find the adjustable strap, when worn Crossbody, becomes a bit heavy because everything is sinking to the bottom of the bag and it tends to pull on my neck. Worth trying for yourself though.

Love this style!
I own 2 of these bags in the Disney pattern and love them so much! I just ordered the Flutterby pattern and can't wait to get it. This bag is so organized and it is so easy to get the items you need. I will definitely be ordering more bags in this style!

I simply adore this!
I am 15 years old and the Vera Bradley Hipster has been one of my most favorite gifts of all time. I take this purse to school everyday. It has a ton of space! It has been very durable and useful for me! I hope this helped.

Excellent Travel Piece
I bought this recently for Traveling. I used it everyday on my vacation. Highly recommend this for traveling or walking for a long period of time. The only downside if your neck is exposed, the strap wants to start rubbing and may get uncomfortable at times. But overall, its a must have VB collection piece.

Top bag for a reason.
Think medium. It isn't so large it will double as a diaper bag, but not so small that you have to stick to just carry a wallet and phone. It has a ton of strategically placed pockets as well. The front zipper pocket is perfect for my keys and the slip pocket behind it cradles my phone. Inside I carry a small cosmetic that neatly holds my essentials, a wallet (usually Euro, but all fit) and a Kiss n Snap manicure set. I like my purses neat and I like being able to swap out bags in no time. I have 50 hipsters now so I would say I like this style. To me it's almost Vera Bradley's iconic style.

I have bought this in Plaid Meets Paisley I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT !!!!! It is great for traveling or if you are ''on the go''. I use it almost every day. I would recommend this for Busy Moms or College students. It is big enough for most every thing, I can even fit MY IPAD IN IT !!! Since then i have bought one in ''Lola'' and ''Lilli Bell''. Also the fabric is durable and can last a life time
P.S. Thanks again Vera

I have 5 or 6 Hipsters and can't get enough! I use it as my everyday purse and when I travel. You can't beat being hands-free and being able to carry everything you need. I can carry a full-size wallet, small cosmetic, iPhone, pens, snack, keys, and lip balm with room for more if needed.
