I do not know how well this will hold up long-term, but I've carried it daily for over a month, and it still looks great. I bought it for a trip, and just kept carrying it at home because I like it so much. I wish it had more pockets (esp an interior zip), but otherwise, I love this bag. I had the black hipster and on the go, and didn't like the stiff strap or the heaviness of the bag. This strap is much more comfortable, and it really is very light to carry. I weighed it and it's about 7 oz. It's hard to find something so light in a solid color with this much size (the black on the go weighs almost twice as much).
I am ordering a second one for back up, but I hope Vera adds a pocket or two and never discontinues this great bag!

I bought my first puffy crossbody in Blue Bayou because I fell in love with how it looked. I love it. It holds a lot more than I thought it would. I put chapstick, tic tacs, all in one crossbody, my checkbook, manicure kit, my keys, my cell phone, a pen, my pill case, my heart shaped coin purse, and a few other things. The great thing is when I wear it, it isn't heavy! Its also very comfortable against your hip as well. I went back and bought the Cocoa moss one on sale and the Clementine one. I just couldn't resist! I am sure I will be buying more of these!

good bag - holds a lot!
I was hesitant about the 'puffy' but I LOVE the color, and being able to take winter weather is a big plus as well. This bag holds a lot! I wish it had another pocket - esp. with a zipper - on the inside, in addtion to the 2 pouches along one side, but ... The outside zip pocket is very handy, and almost holds too much. The bright lining helps to find items inside - glad that is not dark. I think the weight of how much you carry can affect the stitching holding the zipper. I have a lot inside mine, but it seems fine so far. I wish more styles came in this Cobalt color, and/or Sapphire. I wish Vera had more bags with 'expandable depth' like this - you can only fit so many even flat items in those bags just 2" or so wide.
