I love it specially the outer material which is durable and not easily soiled. My problem is the handle where the lining of the strap is slowly coming loose. i asked the lady sales person in Santana Row store who told me that those are not repairable. It does not do well for me...

I've always loved Vera Bradley's interior fabrics and am so excited that several bags are being produced with them! I got this bag in Fanfare. It is beautiful! Every time I wear it, I get compliments on it. Not too bulky, but holds my small cosmetic bag, phone, tech case, keys and zip id case with no problem. Highly pleased with this purchase.

Perfect shape and color but VERY poorly made
I got this bag in march (its now june) for my birthday its so cute and I always received compliments on it. I loved the scalloped edges, Zipper top and pockets but before you buy this bag you MUST know this bag looks and feels great but will fall apart and I mean fast. My boyfriends mother works for Vera so I have many bags ( none of which have ever fallen apart) and didn't even use this one as my every day bag the but edges where the strap connect to the bag are RIPPING. I spoke with my boyfriends mom and she said dozens of women are coming into the store to return this bag because it had broken so quickly. I have stopped using mine because im afraid it will completely snap before I can bring it in. SO DISAPPOINTED

Takes Me Back
The 'slim hipster stopped me in my tracks - as soon as I saw it my thoughts traveled back to 1969 when 'flower power' was considered to be groovy.
This is an ideal purse to have during the Spring and Summer with all the bright colors. Cell phone fits comfortably in the outside scalloped edge pocket and enough room inside to hold a few items. The inside pocket does not have a zipper and folds open so you have to learn to maneuver around it. Really like the material used as you can wipe it down easily.

Love this purse
I went to the VB store planning to buy something else, but, fell in love with the slim hipster in Fanfare when I saw it. It is a very attractive crossbody that can go with alot of different outfits. I wore it to a luncheon yesterday while I was wearing a black and peach outfit with slight touches of yellow. It looked great! I also love the material and how the pattern looks different in the this material vs the signature cotton. It is not too wide so for me it would not be an everyday bag, but, I can see myself using it for lunch and dinner outings with friends.

Love this bag!
This bag is perfect for days when you're out and about and don't need your full purse. Super light weight. Just the right size for your wallet, sunglasses and keys. I would not recommend for every day use -- outside of that, LOVE this bag!

Cute bag for an outing
This bag fits over the shoulder as well as my hipster but with less room and versatility. This is the perfect bag for a lunch out with friends, a day shopping, or a business casual evening event. I love the textured PVC finish which is easy to wipe clean. I purchased the Petal Paisley pattern. I love the pattern and the overall finishes such as the scallops.The dark navy background is dark enough to look almost black which is perfect. I am not a fan of the front pocket which does not have a zipper which means items could slip out.
I love this new bag for other uses aside from day to day because I carry too much for it to be practical for me. I would consider another one if in the future the front pocket included a zipper and other patterns are offered.
