Little Hipster Crossbody
Great for Travelling Light
I really like how this bag makes good use of space, and even when it's filled it doesn't get too bulky or heavy. When I wear it crossbody, it hangs comfortably at my hip and doesn't dig into my shoulder. I'd recommend this bag if you don't like lugging around more than you need to on a daily basis or if you're planning a shopping trip, vacation, etc.
I can fit my cards/cash, gum, and my iPhone in the front wallet pocket; my Kindle (Paperwhite with Amazon case), feminine products, travel-sized Advil, tissues, Nivea hand cream tin, and lipstick in the main compartment; and in the back pocket my keys, chapstick, and a compact mirror. I like taking my Kindle with me, but without it you can fit more small items in the main compartment.
Overall, this is a great, little bag that keeps your necessities organized and in reach.

Great little crossbody
I love crossbody bags and this one is perfect--not too big, not too small. Bigger crossbody bags tend to feel just too heavy (I'm short and small!) and smaller ones can't hold all the essentials I need. I like the adjustable, wide shoulder straps that make it very comfortable to use as a crossbody. The back magnetic closure pocket is perfect to place my cellphone in for easy and quick access--no zippers to mess around with when I'm trying to answer my phone; just a quick one-handed slip of my hand into the pocket to get my phone out quickly. Other outside pockets intended for cell phones on other purses tend to be either too tight or too loose of a fit for my iPhone--too tight meaning I would have to pry my phone out which is a pain and quite annoying when I want to get to my phone quickly, too loose meaning there's ample room but no closure so I worry about the phone accidentally falling out. I have two kids I'm constantly moving around with when I'm out and about so my purse moves around a lot as I'm picking stuff up, running around, etc.
The front flap zippered pocket is like a mini-wallet with credit card/id pockets and is generously sized, and convenient for quick access when I'm about to make a payment at the store--no getting out a separate wallet and opening it to get out the needed money/credit cards; I just zip open this compartment and reach for what I need. The zippered main compartment, again, is great for my needs--not too big, not too small. I can easily fit my iPad mini (with smart cover) and/or kindle paperwhite in it with room to spare. And there's another zippered pocket on the side of the inside main compartment to put other needed things as well.
I have to add, the back magnetic closure/slip pocket runs the whole length of the purse so I can fit a few more things in it if I wanted, with my iPhone 5 (which I use with the Vera Bradley matching silicone/rubberized case). It would easily fit today's larger smartphones/phablets as well, with covers/cases on.

This is probably the best crossbody I have ever owned. It's amazing! The wallet on the outside is perfect. It's so easy, you don't have to go searching for it and it's a great size as well, it even has a money slot. Straps are also a perfect length and they can be adjusted quite easily. Like this a lot better than the Lizzy as well.
