Little Flap Hipster
No need for a wallet
I got this as a gift a little over a month ago, and I can't wait to take it on vacation! My favorite thing about this bag is that it has a wallet built in. I also love how such a small bag can hold so much! It holds everything my big, medium-sized bag did, with the exception of my hard sunglasses case. It's great to hang on your body and forget about carrying it around all day!

Perfect for Travel
I am a type I diabetic and all I need to carry is my testing meter and a few odds and ends, but it works perfect if you're planning on carrying very little. Very good for traveling!! Lots of pockets.

Great for carrying little things
I bought this purse in Ribbons to carry to work with me. I have been trying out a couple of styles lately. I thing this purse is really good for people who don't hold a lot in their purse. For me, I carry my purse, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, pens, keys, and chapstick, as well as my cards and money. I do agree that the front flap tends to be a little top heavy. It bulges on the front flap, and all I put in there is hand lotion, my keys, chapstick and a pen. I wish the zipper pocket was in the back. I think that would help, or even if it had more space. It won't stop me from suggesting this purse to other people.

On the Fence
I bought this bag for a dog walking bag. It was big enough to hold my camera, iPhone and doggie stuff, all separated and neatly stored. I also anticipated caring a small water bottle for mid walk water. I have not tried that yet, but I suspect it will work.
My problem is I store treats in the outer zip pocket and unless I zip it shut, when I lift the flap, all the treats (or lipsticks, change or whatever) fall out. Also, as mentioned the flap can get heavy depending what is stored in that pocket. Also the magnet in the clasp could be stronger. You can close it with pressure and it stays closed, but it does not grab onto itself like other purses I have.
The bag holds a lot of stuff, but some of it is not easily or safely accessible. I have been buying VB for years, but this is the first small purse I have purchased. I think I will try another style for my walking purposes. I love the patterns.

Perfect bag with lots of pockets!
I absolutely love this bag! It is exactly what I needed. I bought it in ribbons and I don't carry a bunch of stuff which is probably why I don't have the issue of a heavy front flap. This purse goes with me everywhere and I get compliments wherever I go! I carry all the essentials with sunglasses and perfume on occasion and have with lots of room to spare! I love all the easy-access pockets and the adjustable strap for what I'm in the mood for! Love it!

Huge fan, but the magnet on this bag isn't strong enough. Also the front flap is too heavy

Great for Traveling
This bag is PERFECT for traveling and weekend errands. I have a hipster, and wanted something smaller. The biggest difference is the size, and how much it can hold. My hipster could hold my nook! This bag is not meant to carry everything, which is why I bought it.
The cross body style is perfect because it keeps your hands free. I never have to worry about setting my purse down and leaving it. The two zippered pockets and the compartment under the flap offer plenty of ways to stay organized. It also has a slim profile, and it doesn't look bulky!
I carry the following in it: iPhone, lipgloss, Vera Bradley Zip Around Id Case, car keys, sunglasses, hand sanitizer and gum.
At first I wasn't crazy about the snap pocket on the back, but it actually is working out just fine, because I have easy access to whatever is in that pocket. I've been keeping my phone in that pocket.
