Great New Cross Body Bag
I really love this bag and already have two. A lot of reviews mention the missing zip pocket on the back, which the smaller Lizzy has. If this is an issue for you, you may prefer the Saddle Up, another great bag with a similar shape, or the Hipster. Both have zip pockets. However, if you are looking for a great, mid-size cross body bag and can overlook the missing zip pocket, this is your bag. Unlike the Lizzy, this bag can carry all the essentials. Wallet, cosmetic case, hand lotion/sanitizer, glass case, keys, phone, book/reader and water bottle. It even holds an iPad (horizontally, if you use the Smart Cover or similar slim cover). As pictured, there are two front pockets. The flap pocket is 7" wide and the slip pocket. Is 5.5" wide. Both pockets are great for phones, keys, coin purses, etc. On the inside of the bag, there are two slip pockets. One is larger (4.5" wide) and the other is rather small (2" wide). A coin purse/tech case will easily fit in the larger pocket and the smaller pocket holds things like hand sanitizer, hand lotion and lip gloss. Give Clare a try. She holds much more than you may expect.

Love this bag
I love this bag! It is so roomy and is a great crossbody bag. The only thing I would love for Vera to do is to include a back pocket, like the Lizzy, where it holds all of your cash/credit cards, etc. It would be the best bag ever if it had the built in wallet. I normally switch out my purse every month or so, but not with this purse. I'm going on 4 months :)

This bag is my favorite Vera Bradley bag to date! I've already bought 3. I like that it's a crossbody witrh room. The hipster is comparable, but the hipster's strap seems to choke me a little and tug at my shirt. I don't know if that's just me, but the Clare has a much longer strap, and crosses my body comfortably. As a college student, this bag is easy to just throw on and head out the door. 8) The only thing I would say kinda suprised me was that there is not a zip pocket but not a deal breaker. I recommend this bag!!
