Best Bag for Disney World!
We have annual passes to Disney so we go for the day fairly often. Ever since this little bag came along the trips have been much easier! The card slots are perfect for our passes, id, and credit card. I throw my phone, a travel size sunblock, chapstick, and hand sanitizer in the main pocket and I am good for the day! I like that the strap feels more durable than the mini hipster, too.

I purchased the Vera Bradley Little Hipster in Tutti Frutti a few weeks ago at a gift shop while on a weekend trip, and love it! The design of the bag appears to have been carefully thought out, as each feature of it is carefully placed in great spots! I like that the built in wallet section has full wallet functions, instead of a few card slots. It has the space for a checkbook, coin purse, and another coin purse for extra cards, but I really wish that there were some more card slots and a zippered pocket built inside the wallet area.
The main compartment is awesome! I really like how it has a hard base, unlike the Mini Hipster. I also like how it's horizontal instead of vertical, fitting more things inside. I can fit a travel sized lotion, two makeup compacts, a mascara, and my usual two lip glosses: with rooms for about 7 more lip glosses! The zippered pocket is great for "you-know-what's" as well.
The back pocket seems a little controversial for everyone. Some people are satisfied with just the magnetic closure, some want a zipper, and some want no closing at all. I, for one, like the magnets, but wish they were a little stronger. The back slip pocket is very roomy, big enough to fit an iPad mini without clicking the magnets together!
Overall, I really like the Little Hipster, and would recommend it to people who pack fairly light!

Never wrote a review before but this cross body requires praise. I now have it in 6 patterns and will continue to expand that number as the new patterns emerge. I was a fan of the Libby from years ago and tried every other cross body Vera makes without being satisfied with size and convenience features. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is a place for everything in this bag. No need for any extra accessories but a matching coin fits well inside the wallet section or center section. I use one for extras like coupons or cards I don't always carry. Having broken my back years ago, I can't handle much weight on a shoulder but I can't even tell I am carrying this bag! I have machine washed all of mine in a delicates bag and they still look new. This perfect bag is my new best friend. Try it and you'll be hooked, too :)

Great Little purse!
I usually like to buy Franny. It's a nice little purse and holds allot more than one would think. The last time I purchased, I decided to try this little hipster and I just love it! I love the pouch for credit cards. It makes keeping things in order so easy and it's so accessible. I also love the little outside pouch with the magnetic closure. It's great for a cell phone. All around great purse and so easy to use.

My favorie Vera purse!!!!
The minute I saw this purse in Marina Paisley I had to have it. I love all my Vera's, and I have a lot of them, but this one is now my favorite. Holds everything I carry and is easy to organize. It even holds a book. Of course no need for a wallet or coin purse, everything is totally contained. I love it so much I got it in Black Microfiber and Canyon too. I have ordered it in Jazzy Blooms from my wonderful local Vera dealer also. One for each season. Perfect purse if you are a minimalist. Not just for school kids either. I am 61 and am very proud to carry my Vera's.

My friend at work carried this bag in island blooms, i loved it so much i went to go buy it myself. I went to occasionally yours and asked one of the girls for the bag in summer cottage but they didn't have it in stock so i went with one of the new prints, tutti frutti. I love the color, print and size of this bag. I was going to get the hipster because it was on sale, but it was entirely too large for my petite frame. I love that the wallet is built into the bag and it is perfect size for all my necessities. I love this style so much, after my friend from work got a new purse i bought her little hipster in island blooms!

Great lightweight cross body
I am arthritic and am always on the lookout for lightweight handbags that are multi-purpose. This bag really suits my needs. The cross body style helps take pressure off my hands and shoulders while placing the bag in an easily accessed position. The front zippered compartment eliminates the need for carrying a separate wallet thus reducing the weight of the bag when filled. Bigger than it looks, this bags holds keys, lipstick and comb with room to spare for my smartphone. Love this bag and would purchase it in other colors as the seasons change.

Great purse for 12 year old
I absolutely love this purse! It's great for someone who doesn't need a full on purse. I also love that I can take it anywhere, I went to a concert and I was able to keep my wallet, gum, two lip glosses, breath spray, nail polish, the concert ticket. I have this purse in plum crazy and love that I can where it with anything because it has a lot of different colors in the pattern. Over all a great purse.

Packs a Powerful Punch !
Especially when out all day it's important that I be as unencumbered as possible. Who wants anything dragging them down? Also, I travel a lot, and it's nice to just have a small bag close to the body - both to deter purse snatchers and to avoid fatigue when sightseeing all day. This bag is amazing ! It's the perfect size to fit all that's needed, and yet is absolutely comfortable. Presently, in the front pocket I have the two credit cards I always use when traveling and my ID, plus there's an extra pocket for subway tickets (: Dollar bills or other paper money go in the longer, top pocket. I use the zip ID for a change purse.It fits nicely. The main compartment holds a Double Eye in which I have my sunglasses and iPhone, plus there's a cosmetic bag of the same size as the Double Eye that holds my lipstain, gloss, powder, comb and small perfume. The inside zippered pocket holds a matching pen to the bag pattern ( Midnight Blue), a small notepad and keys. In the back magnetic pocket there's a handkerchief (a package of tissues makes it bulky), and any receipts I get during the course of the day. It still keeps its slim shape with all of that ! Best travel bag ever when you don't want to be reminded with every step you take that you're carrying stuff around !
