Cute, and zip pocket holds my large smartphone
I don't always like to carry a regular purse when running errands or eating out, but most of the wristlets and wallets aren't big enough to hold my larger smartphone. I bought the Wristlet today and was so pleased that my phone fits inside the inner zip pocket so it won't get scratched. The Wristlet has four card slots in the main compartment, but my zip ID with more cards and cash fits, along with my keyring and lip gloss. It's not as compact as some wristlets, but so worth it to hold my phone and a few essentials. It's very cute in Indigo Pop with the small design trim on both sides, and the strap with a clip on one end. The gusset lets it expand to hold a little more. It's still small enough to be used inside a large purse or tote to hold cosmetics or whatever, but I'll carry it on its own.
My all-time favorite wristlet has been the All-in-One, but the phone pocket isn't large enough to hold many smartphones. Until it's tweaked, the Wristlet will be its substitute, and also has space for my keys inside. Nice alternative to my tiny crossbody purses.

I have two of these wristlets and love their compact design. The inside has 4 credit card slots on one side and a zipper pocket on the other. The outside has no pockets, but the strap is designed to be used as a wristlet or it detaches from the one side by a large lobster claw clasp that hooks onto the other side of the bag to make it into a handle that can be carried like a regular bag. I also own the push lock wristlet which is slightly bigger than this regular wristlet, plus it has the extra push lock pocket in the front. Both have their uses, but if I had to choose one over the other, I would choose the push lock wallet just because it is slightly larger and has the extra pocket.

This is a nice little purse to grab and run out the door with. It holds a ton of things including glasses, cash, cards, keys, and change. I would definitely recommend this if you want an easy to grab and cute purse.

For years I have been carrying the old style wristlet with just the little slip pocket and finally decided to check out the new design. I don't know why i waited so long I love it so much! I got it in the pattern Lilli Bell to go inside my magenta tote and it matches without being too "matchy-matchy". The zippered pocket on the inside was enough already but when i received it and saw the card slots also i was overjoyed. This is a wonderful alternative to a standard wallet and you can even carry your phone, chapstick, or even your keys all in one place. Definitely will be repurchasing!!

Holds everything you need for a night out - cards, cash, phone, small pill case. It's definitely a full-sized wallet, but not too big.

Best Vera Item I Own
I got my first wristlet a few days before my 21st birthday. I went to a local retail store and asked for something that I could put my phone, keys, cards, and anything else I might need into. The saleswoman suggested a wristlet in Go Wild and I was so pleased with it. I now own about 10 of them in assorted patterns. They hold everything I mentioned earlier plus eyeliner, a bunch of pens, papers I may need, and change, and it doesn't even look bulky. The fact that this thing expands to hold more sends it over the top. I can either take it out to walk around the mall or go somewhere, or I stick it in my purse. This is definitely my favorite Vera wallet and I was disappointed to see it wasn't released in the new colors.

Holds so much !
I was surprised how much I could fit into this wristlet ! Phone, keys, Chapstick, travel size lotion, pocket tissues...plus my DL and other cards! Also, love the flexibility of moving the strap to turn it into a small handbag !

Really glad I bought one of these. I'd been thinking a long time on whether to buy a wallet or wristlet. This one is great to fit a larger phone, along with other little things. I did cut the ribbon off of the interior zipper. It gets in the way of the outside zipper all the time. I bought it in Sun Valley and it's a very pretty pattern for summer. Would love to get it in black as well for more dressy occasions.

Most used, most favored item!
I have gotten a couple of things from Vera Bradley but this one has to be one of my most used and most favored. I bought it in my favorite print, Midnight Blues, and I it just so happens to match my Campus backpack. I use this wallet for everything. It has enough slots for all of my credit cards, loyalty cards, drivers license. It also has a little coin zip pocket on the side where I keep all of my change. This wallet is also pretty spacey, it has enough room for my keys, when I don't carry around a purse I carry around this wristlet to the grocery store, walks, etc. It fits not only my keys but my phone, one or two pens, a couple of tampons and some receipts just in case. I love this because I zip it right open when I'm paying for something and everything is right there - there is no need to dig for anything. I also love this because I use it not only as a mini-purse but also a wallet, and I throw it in my purse along with my cosmetic bags and etc. I have gotten many compliments on this wallet and would definitely recommend different patterns to my friends. :)

I'll admit to not totally loving the re-design of this wristlet - I had the old-style in Poppy Fields, and part of what was so good about it was that my camera fit perfectly so it wasn't sliding around at all whereas in the re-design it moves more than I'd like it to. However, it still is pretty decent for carrying my camera, and its perfect for carrying my Nintendo 3DS. The case I had gotten with my 3DS was so bulky and only had a teeny strap on top, so it isn't terribly convenient; this one works much better since it has a strap, doesn't take up a huge amount of room, but still can fit the 3DS, a bunch of games, AND the charger. Even if I'm not carrying the 3DS or camera by itself, I'll often put them in a wristlet and then put it into the main bag I'm carrying since the wristlet is good for cushioning.
For more everyday stuff, the wristlet is also a really solid choice - you can carry money in it, your phone, and keys if you're running out to the grocery store or going to see a movie or something of that sort. A good option when you don't need to be lugging a huge bag with you.
