Can't have enough of this great bag!
This is one of my favorite handbags. I own it in several colors and have even given it as gifts to family and friends. I read in a previous review that Little Hipster's fabric had worn through even though the customer had not had it long and only used it once or twice a week. The only reply I have to this complaint is that this person must have gotten a rarely defective one--I consider myself somewhat of a "Little Hipster Expert" and I have never experienced any issues with the fabric wearing. I used my first little hipster every day for more than a year and it still looks like new! The same is true for the little hipster I am using now (have been using it daily for several months). This bag is perfect for its organization, its size, and its lightness. For anyone with arm or shoulder problems (like me), it is the perfect bag. I even have a mini LED flashlight clipped to the strap.

Great little crossbody
I love crossbody bags and this one is perfect--not too big, not too small. Bigger crossbody bags tend to feel just too heavy (I'm short and small!) and smaller ones can't hold all the essentials I need. I like the adjustable, wide shoulder straps that make it very comfortable to use as a crossbody. The back magnetic closure pocket is perfect to place my cellphone in for easy and quick access--no zippers to mess around with when I'm trying to answer my phone; just a quick one-handed slip of my hand into the pocket to get my phone out quickly. Other outside pockets intended for cell phones on other purses tend to be either too tight or too loose of a fit for my iPhone--too tight meaning I would have to pry my phone out which is a pain and quite annoying when I want to get to my phone quickly, too loose meaning there's ample room but no closure so I worry about the phone accidentally falling out. I have two kids I'm constantly moving around with when I'm out and about so my purse moves around a lot as I'm picking stuff up, running around, etc.
The front flap zippered pocket is like a mini-wallet with credit card/id pockets and is generously sized, and convenient for quick access when I'm about to make a payment at the store--no getting out a separate wallet and opening it to get out the needed money/credit cards; I just zip open this compartment and reach for what I need. The zippered main compartment, again, is great for my needs--not too big, not too small. I can easily fit my iPad mini (with smart cover) and/or kindle paperwhite in it with room to spare. And there's another zippered pocket on the side of the inside main compartment to put other needed things as well.
I have to add, the back magnetic closure/slip pocket runs the whole length of the purse so I can fit a few more things in it if I wanted, with my iPhone 5 (which I use with the Vera Bradley matching silicone/rubberized case). It would easily fit today's larger smartphones/phablets as well, with covers/cases on.

Absolutely love it!!!!
This bag has been wonderful to carry. The side pocket eliminates the need for a wallet. Love so much, buying one in a darker color for winter!!!

Fabric Wears Through
I've had this bag for less than a year, and the fabric has worn through on the back side where it rubs against my body. I only go out 1-2 times a week to do errands, and expected much more from this bag. I believe I purchased in October 2013, and by June 2014 it was already getting a hole worn into it from rubbing.

Perfect wallet/purse combo
I bought this purse in Baroque to carry in my daughter's Vera Bradley backpack diaper bag. It fits inside the backpack easily and is readily accessible. There are only a few credit card slots, so I store extra cards, gift cards, and change in a matching coin purse in the main part of the purse. I use the back slip pocket for storing coupons. This bag stores all the essentials without the bulk and is the perfect wallet purse combo! I am very satisfied with this purchase!

Amazing Little Bag
When I first received this, I thought it was too small. Then I realized it held everything I wanted and then some. There are not a lot of credit card slots in the built in wallet. I solved that by putting my less used cards in a small wallet in the interior. My most used cards are in the built-in. I now have 3 of these little charmers. Amazing what Vera bradley's will hold because they expand and also the high quality zippers.

Great For in a Diaper Bag
I bought this to carry my own personal belongings in my diaper bag. It doesn't take up too much space in my diaper bag (the Vera Bradley Weekender) and I love that it has a built in wallet. I can keep all my belongings together and quickly grab it out and go for the times I don't have my baby in tow.

I love this crossbody bag!
Definately recommend the Little Hipster over any other for someone who just wants to carry the basics & wants to be able to find what she wants at a moments notice! Everything can be kept so organized! The strap is the perfect length for a communter & anyone who uses public transportation! Just can't say enough about the Little Hipster! I have it in Ribbons & have gotten so many compliments since I've gotten it! Definatly go for it!

Perfect small crossbody bag!
The Little Hipster is my favorite small Vera bag! It holds a surprisingly amount of items. The front zippered pocket is a roomy wallet that holds many credit cards (I have put as many as 8 in the pockets), drivers license, money and change. There is even room for other small paper items such as receipts etc. In the main pocket, I put a small compact, lip balm, small fold up brush, hand sanitizer, glass case,and keys. There is a zippered pocket inside which fits my cell phone perfectly and securely. The outside magnetic close pocket fits my gum, mints, kleenex
and hand wipe packets. All this in a small cute little bag and you are good to go....its great crossbody straps are wonderful for hands free shopping, errands and outings. I own two of these bags and out of all the Vera I own they are among my favorites! This is a great bag for any age group from young to old.
