Great Wristlet! More useful than standard version
I went to see this on release day and wasn't too impressed.. I really thought it would be way too small. I left disappointed that day.
After getting my Little Hipster (also reviewed), I started looking at this again. I've been trying to find one in Ribbons and apparently so has everyone else because it was impossible to find.....until I opened my birthday present from my husband today!
I am totally won over. Not only is it a great style for one of my fav patterns (Ribbons) but it holds much more than thought. Fits my iPhone 5 in a Lifeproof case (not wide but taller) in the pushlock with no problems. I have my ID and several cards in the 4 roomy slip pockets (warning, the two on the side of the unzipped zipper can be a bit difficult to get in and out but not horrid), bills/change and my medical ID in the zipper pocket inside. Then a rather bulky pill box, my Burt's Bees spray hand sanitizer (awkward fit but works) and a pen in the main open area. It DOES look pretty packed in there but if I got a normal pocket sanitizer it wouldn't.
All in all, very happy with it and hubby won big brownie points! :)

I received this wristlet as a birthday gift and LOVE it! I'm a mother of two and carrying a purse and diaper bag was getting to be too much, so I was needing something that could transition from a purse to a diaper bag with ease and not having to move a lot of things around. This is what I was looking for! I can fit all of my cards (about 2-3 in a slot), my checkbook (with pen), chap stick, lip gloss, cell phone, keys, and cash in it with a little more room to spare! The front pocket is great for my cell phone. I have it in the Tutti Frutti pattern and is it is very cute. I've showed it to co-workers and they want one too! I would definitely recommend!!

Great New Style
I am a big fan of the Vera Bradley wristlets, and I was so excited when I heard about the new Pushlock Wristlet. I was immediately impressed with its size - it's much roomier than the traditional VB wristlet. The four card slots keep you organized, with the zipper compartment for your bills and change. There's a lot of room inside for a few cosmetics, gum, etc. I love the outer compartment, too - it's perfect for a cell phone (it's plenty big for a smart phone) and/or keys.
