Rated 5 out of 5 by SpartansFan Love the Drawstring Crossbody!
I am a huge fan of the retired Quick Draw that has a similar style to the Drawstring Crossbody. So of course I am so excited that Vera Bradley produced another similar style. This new cross body is so cute and lightweight. It is smaller than the Quick Draw but it is also a lot lighter. And, the faux leather trim is really nice and soft. I think it will help keep the parts of the bag clean that have the most chance of getting dirty (the strap and bottom). I wear my cross body styles very low (at or below my hip) and this one is very comfortable. The front concealed pocket is bigger than it looks and fits my iPhone and lip balm perfectly. Inside are two slip in pockets and a zippered pocket. I really like a zippered interior pocket and was so glad to see one in this style. I purchased this in Flower Shower (too cute) and plan to purchase another pattern right away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luckey Super cute crossbody with lots of room
Fully opened, everything's visible. Holds lots of stuff. Inside pockets: 2 on one side and zip pocket on opposite side. Unbelievable what I have in mine. My Mandy style doesn't hold as much as this. I find things easier in the drawstring style. Hidden front pocket holds much more than you think such as: my work badge, car keys, lipstick. The front pocket wouldn't accommodate my Samsung Galaxy phone, but a smaller I Phone would most llikely fit. Ziggy Zenia is great for summer and matches many things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyInLove Perfect size and shape!
I love everything about this purse! I have bought a LOT of Vera, and this one is only the 2nd item I have reviewed. Yes, the trim is faux leather. But very soft and still looks classy. It's the perfect size for your "necessities" :) Right now I have a zip around compact wallet, kiss kiss coin purse, 18-oz kanteen water bottle, keys, digital camera, mini lint roller (cat lover), small bottles of hand cream and sanitizer, a pencil-case-like pouch for reuseable utensils (greenie!), phone, and a 3x3 gift box (today is graduation) in mine. That's a lot, right?! I couldn't believe how much it held!! I could stuff a thinnish scarf in the space that's left or even something a little bulkier if I don't draw up the string. The front pocket is PERFECT for easy access to your cell phone and bus pass. And the slip pockets and zip pocket on the inside are well placed for little things that you want to access quickly. The last hole on the strap (shortest) is perfect for me (I'm 5'3"). I like how the bag conforms to your side if it's not drawn up too tightly. SO SAD it looks like this style is being discontinued (I don't see new colors). I absolutely love it, and wish I had gotten other colors before they sold out! Petal Paisley is gorgeous; wear it with a navy coat.
