Great little crossbody purse!
I've been using my Frannie for a just under a month, and have been using it everywhere. Mine is in lemon parfait! First off let me say I'm a mom, and I adore this style. I use this purse all the time now as my go to purse when I'm going out to do shopping, walking around town, and when I take my 4 yr. old out! I love it! I have great big purses by expensive designer brands, but every now and then I just want something that's comfortable, stylish, and hands free! This is great! I can fit in my cell phone, keys, wallet, a pull-up, and it's great for all little other accessories! I even fit my Michael Kors make up bag in this purse! ;) This is great when you don't want to be weighed down by a large purse or shoulder bag, and the nicest thing of all is that the Frannie can be converted into a shoulder purse by simply making the strap smaller! I'll live in the Midwest so it's cold and snowy out here right now, and it goes over all of my winter coats! Not to mention the nice pattern just brightens up all dreary winter gear! Not just for a young tween, but moms and ladies on the go everywhere! :)

I LOVE this bag! I got this in Baroque from a vera bradley outlet yesterday. The size is perfect. You can only fit the necessities (phone, ipod, chapstick, gum, sunglasses, and wallet) which is helpful for me because I tend to be ultra-prepared and therefore weighed down by a heavy bag.

Great for a quick run!
I recently got this purse for Christmas and I was really excited! I loved it and brought it around everywhere. I got it in island blooms and I really like how it kept it's shape and didn't just flop around on my hips. It fits my wallet, phone lotion etc.
The only thing that I don't like about this purse is that it doesn't have any pockets so everything just jumbles around in the bottom. It really isn't a problem for be bit it will be a concern for other women.

I first got this purse because everyone in school has it. This purse looks small, but it is huge on the inside. It can fit my wallet, phone, gloves, key, chap stick, and hair band, and there is still more room! Also, a got it in canterberry magenta that matches my backpack. Beautiful!

Great little Purse!
I recently got this purse in Venetian Paisley and love it! I was thinking about getting it awhile ago but wasn't sure about the size, but i did change my mind and went ahead and got it a while later! It may seem small but, it does actually carry quite a few things. It also has the feature of carrying in on your shoulder or adjusting it to a cross body! Its a great purse if your looking for one that is small but, not to small to the point where you can carry multiple items. Its light weight, whereas i usually where the hipster which is heavier, (mostly likely because i carried more items, though.) The price is just right and is worth every penny. I especially love the color Venetian Paisley in this purse style! I totally recommend it to anybody!! :)

I love it!
This bag is perfect. When I ordered it online I was alittle scared because I really had no idea what it would look like in real life. When I got it I was so happy because it was what I wanted the print is perfect (island blooms). You can change the strap for what you like wich is good because in 5'5 and I would look wierd running around with a purse that didn't even pass my ribs. I get so many complements on it and now I give them as gifts. I think you will really love it.

I think Frannie is the best bag in small bags category. It is versatile, you can dress up with it to go to a restaurant or dress down to go to a grocery store. You can shorten or lengthen the straps based on your needs for the moment. It is small but not so small. It holds my five essentials: one wallet size 7"x4", one key holder size 5"x3", my iPhone, my sun glasses without case, and an 8 ounce bottle of water. I could also drop in a lip stick or two. Since I started my VB experience only a month ago, I have purchased 7 Frannies, 5 for my own use and 2 as gifts.
Most of the VB patterns look lovely in Frannie but I can't say that for bigger bags. I have much hesitation and reservation for large colorful bags because they seem to take over you or just overpower, while Frannie provides nice decoration on you and complements your outfit, not the other way around.

Perfect Bag for Me!
The Frannie was my first VB bag. I got it almost two years ago and it is still in nearly perfect condition! It is super sturdy and holds everything I need, that being my VB wristlet, hand sanitizers,lip gloss, eos lip balm, my glasses case, and a bunch of makeup. This is the ideal cross body for anyone who doesn't have a ton to carry. It does fit a lot more than you would think because of the pleats on both sides, which expand to fit a lot more than the average bag of its size would. However, this is not the bag for people who like to have everything with them. It is perfect for teens especially, because of its durability, price, and contemporary style. The crossbody feature is also easily accessible and changes the look of the bag completely! Aside from its practically, this bag is so cute! I have gotten so many compliments! I loved it so much, I HAD to get another one! This is by far my favorite bag from Vera. If you want a light-weight crossbody and you don't have a ton to carry, get it! Great, for the price!

Not too big, not too small, just right
I had a Vera bag very similar to this on about three years ago, but lost it at some point, so asked for one of there babies for Christmas. I love, love, LOVE this bag. It is pretty small, so it is definitely not for someone with a ton to carry. But it is a great size for just the basics. Mine holds one change purse, my iPhone in life proof case, Chapstick/lipgloss, two mini and one full sized Altoid case, two pens, and a mini notebook. I really like the adjustable strap. It is a very nice shape for carrying and really quite pretty. Overall a great bag.
