This purse is my favorite of all Vera Bradley purses. It is small but you can get a lot in it. I just love it. And Canyon is one of my favorite patterns. Keep making this purse pppppplllllleeeeaaaaassssseeeee. Got it in all but 3 colors. Saving for those.

Is this a bag or a lunchbox?
I ordered the Patricia Crossbody online and had it shipped to my daughter who is at college in another state. She said she loved it!
When I finally got around to going to my local Vera Bradley store, I was shocked at the actual size. It looked like an overpriced lunchbox! I telephoned her immediately and said,"If you don't absolutely love it, exchange it for something else." She kept it...I would have returned it.

Love Leather Trim
I was so excited when I got this purse in Canyon. I think the leather trim really compliments the pattern. Before this I had the anniversary wallet in midnight blues and I wanted something bigger but still wanted the leather trim so this was the perfect option. The wallet in the back of the purse is perfect because it gives you more room to carry your cellphone, camera, makeup, etc in the larger compartment.

Best yet crossbody style!
I have tried almost EVERY Vera Bradley purse style in search of the perfect crossbody style, and to date this one comes the closest to what I am searching for. If you think the Hipster style lacks class and slightly too large, and the Mini Hipster is too small but like the pockets/slots, etc., and the Lizzy/Rachel is great but too small - you may also think this one is great, too. The size works, but only because you don't have to carry your wallet - all your cards and money can be placed in the zippered area, which eliminates the need to carry a separate wallet (that actually took awhile to get accustomed to), but without a wallet, there was enough room for my cellphone and camera, and small incidentials. It truly works for me, and the styling is very classy for business casual travel - through airports, sightseeing tours, and shopping trips where you want your hands free. The leather strap is just right and adds to the stylish look. It is slightly stiff until you use it a few times #I think it is the leather that adds the stiffness). I purchased in the Canyon fabric trimmed in brown leather and it looked great this winter with brown leather boots!

I have been wanting this bag for a long time, but I wasn't interested in any of the color choices. I was so happy to see the new colors with the colored leather! I chose the Go wild pattern and I absolutely love it! I love how it has a place for your cards. That really helps eliminate a wallet. I can put my cell phone, inhaler, tic tacs, chapstick and a couple of other small things in it. If I leave my cell phone out, I can fit even more in this bag. What I also didn't know is there are two pockets in the purse as well! I feel its an elegant purse to take around and I love the turn lock on it. I would definitely recommend this bag!

My mom bought me this purse for Christmas when it was full price, and I absolutely love it! I travelled to South America with it, and it was the BEST and EASIEST purse I have ever had/used! It was easy for me to get into when going through the airport, customs, etc. The strap is the right width and is perfectly adjustable. Don't be too worried about how big it is! I fit a change purse, paperwork, sunglasses, medium/small nikon camera, money, lipstick/chapstick, etc all inside the big compartment. There are just enough credit card slots and a an appropriately sized spot for cash. I really really love this. The only thing that I am disappointed about were the seriously few colors it came in at Christmas time, especially since there's a gorgeous new color that is all tropical-looking. Def one of the best Vera buys thus far!

I Love it, You'll Love it, We all Love it!
This is a GREAT buy, so I totally recommend it. I love the slots for the credit cards, it makes it easier, and you don't have to carry around a wallet. I wish though it came in more colors, but it's okay. I gave it 4 stars because of the fact of the few colors AND it might just be because it's somewhat new, but it's so stiff, which is hard to open. I hope this review helped. Thanks, Kylie C.

I love this bag perfect for on the go, traveling and shopping. Outside compartment is perfect for keeping bills and has a place for credit cards. I love the brown leather trim.
