Cute, and zip pocket holds my large smartphone
I don't always like to carry a regular purse when running errands or eating out, but most of the wristlets and wallets aren't big enough to hold my larger smartphone. I bought the Wristlet today and was so pleased that my phone fits inside the inner zip pocket so it won't get scratched. The Wristlet has four card slots in the main compartment, but my zip ID with more cards and cash fits, along with my keyring and lip gloss. It's not as compact as some wristlets, but so worth it to hold my phone and a few essentials. It's very cute in Indigo Pop with the small design trim on both sides, and the strap with a clip on one end. The gusset lets it expand to hold a little more. It's still small enough to be used inside a large purse or tote to hold cosmetics or whatever, but I'll carry it on its own.
My all-time favorite wristlet has been the All-in-One, but the phone pocket isn't large enough to hold many smartphones. Until it's tweaked, the Wristlet will be its substitute, and also has space for my keys inside. Nice alternative to my tiny crossbody purses.

not Otterbox friendly
Very disappointing- there is a separation in purse making it impossible to place my Samsung galaxy note2w/ otterbox in wristlet despite the indicated dimensions.

NFL GAME DAY BAG
I recently used this to enter an NFL stadium. Now that they have the bag restrictions, you must have a clear bag or a small wristlet. This bag worked perfectly and I was able to carry my cellphone, money, i.d. and a few other things as well! I am ordering another one in my "team colors"!

PERFECT for college!!
I bought this because I wanted to keep all my small stuff together, instead of floating around my backpack, and I absolutely love it!
Being a college student, I am always on the go. This is a great size to hold all my stuff, and then I can just throw it in my backpack when I don't feel like carrying it.
It currently is holding:
Various cards (Student I.D., debit, business, etc.)
A pack of gum
AND a high lighter, pencil, and pen.
WITH A LITTLE ROOM LEFT!
Basically everything I may need on a regular day. Plus, it's a good size to take shopping or to dinner. I am so happy with this, and I am sure I will buy another one down the road

I've never seen this mentioned here, but I have been using this wristlet for my jewelry when I travel. Earrings go in the four slip pockets; necklaces stay tangle-free in the zippered compartment, and my bracelets stay protected in the main compartment. The whole bag of valuables fits neatly into whatever purse I'm taking through security, where it stays discretely out of public view, and then onto the plane where it stays safe with me. At the hotel, it pops right into the safe. I own 2 of these and am considering getting a third because I've stopped unpacking my baubles after a trip-- it's so convenient to just leave them in the wristlets for daily use at home, with silver in one, gold in the other. To my eye, some patterns shine in this little piece while others don't, so I recommend going for a brighter, smaller scale pattern. I always love reading these reviews to see how women repurpose their Vera items; every time I have mentioned to a Vera store associate how I use my wristlets they are amazed so I hope this inspires some of you. Try it!

Bring the Old Style Back!!
I use the wristlet to keep all the random little purse items together so they are not floating around loose in my handbag. So for my use of this, I really do not like the new gusseted interior (Loved the old style).
The interior makes it awkward to carry all the items because I feel the interior is smaller now (not sure if it is, but to me it doesn't hold what I used to).
The zipper pocket is nice but the card pockets do not really hold my cards well enough for me to use them.
If you don't intend to carry a lot of items in this wristlet and only use it for essentials, this may work for you - but for me it did not.

Great - but would be better with a strap!!
Great product but don't like the gussets. It makes it bulkier. The wristlets would be absolutely fantastic if it came with a shoulder strap or if it was sold separately. But alas....

Great TRAVEL Wristlet !
I purchased this wristlet to take with me to the Disney Parks...as a wallet for us. (my hubby carried a small backpack for the kids drinks and wipes etc.) I cant say enough about it - It fit my android phone, our digital camera, had slots for 6 cards, a zip compartment for coins etc. I put our money(bills) betwn my camera and phone. I had room in there for a spray neoporin on the go, small tube of Eucerin ointment for chaffed rubbed sandaled feet.. And I recliped the wristlet to be a "purse handle" which was most comfortable for me to hold and distributed the wieght evenly. I cant say enough about it - maybe if it had a water proof liner it would be the BESTEST EVER ! would highly recommend it - quite roomy, without sectioned limitations on design.

Sleek, Lightweight Function!
I purchased the classic Vera wristlet a few years ago, but I was delighted and thrilled with the new updates! Bought the Ribbons print today, and I love the new gusset, card slots and secure zipper wall compartment. Looks just like the old version, but better! I know I will get tons of use out of this little bag, which sleekly totes my Smart Phone, Chap Stick, cash, comb and keys. Looking forward to my next new pattern!
