Great for Airline Travel - Form meets Function
Bought this bag in Ribbons for an upcoming trip by plane. I absolutely LOVED its functionality. It is the perfect hands free travel companion. I chose to use this purse for my entire trip. There are plenty of pockets for "plastic" money and smaller zipper compartments for small loose items or change. I used the main zipper compartment for a Motorola Atrix smart phone, lip color & chap stick and tissues. I kept my boarding passes in the back slip pocket which kept them secure yet easily accessed for boarding. Since returning, I still have not switched back into my regular purse (yes, another Vera). I love the color, too. The color doesn't show dirt (a plus) and even though it is navy, the bright pink flowers make it colorful, and the smaller pattern/print make it a great choice for a small bag. A great little cross body bag!!!!!

Dress up like a, mini hipster.
I have had my mini hipster in midnight blues for about two months now. I was a little worried at first because sometimes my gift cards and credit cards don't fit in the little card pockets that are built up inside but they fit! I am completely in-love with this purse and since I bought it I have not felt the need to buy a new purse which says something; I usually buy a new purse once a month.
I can fit my check-book, my mini calendar, mini address book, a bottle of lotion, up to three pens, and when you open the flap there is a zipper pouch inside where I "hide" my money which is nice. On the back of the mini hipster there is a pouch and my iPhone 5 fits in it perfectly as long as the phone case isn't too big. So if you have an Otter Box case it will certainly not fit.
This purse can fit all your basic necessities for the day. If you are used to having a lot of things in your purse then this might not be for you, but if you are only wanting the few basics then I highly recommend this mini hipster. You will fall completely in-love with it, and it comes in tons of styles! Don't be alarmed by the size of the strap when you get it, you can adjust it and the fabric is not fragile, I have had no problems with the fabric it is very strong/sturdy just take good care of your purse.

I bought this hipster last spring for my sister and one for myself as we were going on a cruise. I knew it would be much handier to carry with us on the ship instead of a purse. There is a place for everything in this mini hipster. In fact, it seems more than "mini." My Kindle Paper White fit in the largest pocket as well. An easy place to show I.D. without removing it, a place for credit cards, money, even lipstick and compact. Love this little hipster. I am ordering another color now so I will have a choice.
