Great little crossbody for travelling light
I've tried other crossbodies in the past and either didn't like the size/shape or didn't like having a big gaudy patterned strap across my torso (I love my colorful VB but there is a limit!). So, reasons I love this bag are 1) nice size to hold my basics (though I wish it were a tiny bit larger so I could fit my sunglasses in there) , 2) the strap is long enough for it to sit properly on my hip (it's adjustable), and 3) solid black "leather" trim really makes the Citron pattern pop on the bag but the solid black strap tones it down by not splashing it across my whole body. I'm already getting lots of compliments on it. More bags with the trim please Vera!

Good Purse for your basics!
I LOVE this purse! I usually carry around the mailbag but there are just some times that you want to carry around a smaller bag. I have the patricia crossbody but it wasn't big enough to hold my keys after I put my phone and necessities in, but this one is! I love all of the pockets as there are a total of two compartments inside, and in the main area, are two pockets and a zip up area to keep stuff in! then on the back, there is a pocket for easy access! I have a phone and a wallet with some other necessities in it and still have room! So if you are wanting a purse that isn't too small but isn't really that big that can carry your necessities and more, then this purse is for you! With the beautiful leather trim, you can't go wrong! I bought it in citron and julip tulip and both are beautiful to me!

Cute, structured crossbody bag
I purchased mine in the Blue Bayou and appreciate the beautiful faux leather trim. This looks like a medium-sized crossbody bag, but because of it's structured sides, it holds a smaller amount of items. The inner zippered pocket is the perfect size to use as a small cosmetic area or to hold keys. There are two slip pockets inside the bag as well, but when filled with bulky items like lotion, they take away from the main compartment. In the main compartment, I put my Soft Wallet, a VB coin purse and travel pack of tissues. I tried using my VB small cosmetic bag, but it did take up most of the main compartment. There is also a slip pocket attached to the front of the bag under the flap. This is great for a phone. A long slip pocket runs across the back of the bag, but I wish it included a magnet. It is against the body, but that is the only thing that makes it feel secure to me.
The adjustable strap has four adjusting options like a belt buckle. This is a great little bag if you don't have a heavy load.
