I recently bought the hipster in black microfiber, and I really love it. First, I love how sturdy and strong it is, and how it can stand up more easily than the regular hipster. Second, the solid color is rich and simply amazing; it will go well with anything and any color! Third, it seems to be slightly taller and wider than my regular hipsters, which means my Kindle Fire HD fits nicely inside with my wallet, phone, brush, tissues, lotion, make-up, etc. There is plenty of room and no bulkiness! Fourth, I actually like how the inside pockets are on the front side of the purse (the side with the slip pocket and small zip pocket on the front). It seems like I can access the inside pockets better than the inside pockets on the regular hipster. Fifth, the strap is a bit stiff, but I do not think it adds much extra weight at all. I like that it is less likely to get tangled. I love all of the pockets, the cross-body option, and zip closure! Overall, this is a great and functional black purse!

I was thrilled to see this bag was being offer in microfiber. As many of us Vera fans know, the hipster is an amazing bag. Comfortable, lightweight, very roomy yet has a slim design. I have one in the floral nightingale pattern which is adorable but its nice to be able to switch to a solid color as well. I had a hard time choosing between the three colors available because they are all beautiful. I ended up getting the black one which is simply gorgeous. Anyone who is debating whether to get this bag or not, go for it, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Yes, I like this bag - I have two of them!
I guess the fact that I have two of these bags, one red and one black, says it all. This slim profile, lightweight, handsfree bag is great for everyday use whether it's work, shopping, meeting friends, whatever. I like the versatility of the microfiber fabrics as they "go" with more of one's wardrobe, plus I just like the luxurious feel. The pockets make smaller items (such as keys and phone) easy to get my hands on keep me organized. Great bag!
