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!

Perfect doesn't even describe this bag...
This bag is beyond perfect. It is great for running quick errands or for those marathon shopping days. I got my first hipster in the Happy Snails pattern as a Christmas present, but I loved it so much I got another one in Safari Sunset. The front pocket is perfect to keep my phone and keys in, while the main compartment can fit so much. I have a turnlock wallet that I put in it along with my iPod and other small accessories. It is a great size and the shoulder strap is very comfortable. This is a great bag for any woman any age.

LOVE LOVE LOVE my Vera Bradley Hipster!
I bought the Hipster in Plum Crazy as a birthday gift to myself. I usually carry much larger bags, but I had been considering down sizing. I'm so glad that I got this one! It has room for all the necessities and then some! I'm able to fit a small bottle of hand sanitizer, small hand lotion, a travel pack of tissues, a bottle of tylenol, my Carry It All Wristlet with my iPhone in it, a few hair clips, bobby pins, pony tail holders, chapstick, and a powder compact for touch ups. It carries all of that and still has plenty of room for me to add stuff if I need to! I love that there is a pocket for everything so I can keep it organized. I love the zipper pocket on the outside of the bag on the part that goes against your body because I keep my valuables in there since its closest to me. I like the small zipper on the outside front of the bag for bobby pins and emergency hair ties and little odds and ends. This bag is PERFECT! I recently went to a 4 day music and culture festival and carried my bag with me everywhere with ease! I even stashed some extra napkins, hand wipes, and toilet paper for those dreaded trips to the port-a-potty!!! Even with the extra weight in the bag, it never felt heavy! Love this one Vera! Good job! :)

Happy with it!
I'm a mom of a two year old and this is definitely my go-to purse for everyday errands and other toddler shenanigans. When I first purchased it, I was worried it wouldn't hold all the stuff I needed, but I was wrong! Since my little one is two, I don't have to carry all the stuff I used to when she was a newborn, so if you have a baby, I would recommend not getting this hipster and scoping out some bigger purses. The purse has 2 front pockets and one back zip pocket, inside it has a cell phone pocket and another little pocket next to that. What I currently hold in my hipster: matching wallet, a couple of diapers, Huggies travel pack of wipes, cell phone, hand sanitizer, chap stick, Kleenex, pen, old receipts, and a small ziploc snack.

I have four, my perfect purse
I prefer smaller purses, and have found the Hipster meets all my needs. I bought my first one two years ago when looking for a purse that would hold my iPad and other necessary "stuff". I do not care for large wallets, personal preference. I fine the different VB coin puses make the best wallet for me, and they do not take up much room in the Hipster. I appreciate the crossover strap, my favorite way to use when doing serious shopping.....keeps my hands free. Also feels more secure then just a shoulder strap. Besides the iPad and coin purses, there is room for Kleenex, lipstick, nail file, pen, tube of hand cream, small note pad. I carried my Deco Daisy Hipster all over China last year, and my black one is going to Russia with me in June. I also have the Tablet Hipster, again enjoy the compact size, and the ability to carry what is necessary for me.
I recommend this for all ages, I am 73 years young.

Great for Lessening Your Load
I just bought my Marina Paisley hipster yesterday, and I was surprised at how small it was inside. Not that that's a bad thing, because I wanted to lessen my load and get a smaller bag! The size forces you to carry less, which can either be great or terrible, depending on the person. It works for me because now I'm just carrying essentials rather than a whole bunch of stuff.
I love the zip closures on the outside of the bag - I think it enhances the space inside. The space inside has three slip pockets that are perfect for small things (such as my gum/tic-tacs, compact hairbrush, and inhaler). The larger compartment of the hipster is perfect to fit my new Marina Paisley Zip-around wallet, first-aid, and other essentials that I need in my day to day life. I also love the adjustable strap and how it can be worn on either the shoulder or crossbody.
If you're looking to find a smaller purse to carry less "stuff" in, then this is the bag for you!

I bought this for myself for a graduation present a couple of weeks ago. I also bought the cell phone holder/wallet to go with it. I have to say, I am very happy with my purchase!
