Perfect Size for the Essentials
First things first, I am not a large bag person. Prior to purchasing this hipster, I had only been using a wristlet. However, I found that my Vera Bradley wristlet was unable to carry all the essentials. I came to the conclusion that I needed to look for another bag. I personally do not like carrying purses, so I was instantly drawn to this cross-body design. I believe this bag is beautiful, as well as functional. It is able to hold everything I need and then some. I am able to fit a Vera Bradley wristlet, my lanyard and keys, my zip ID, some pencils and pens, and a book with some space left over. In addition, the front pocket is perfect for holding my iPhone 5S. I love how many pockets there are on this bag and it helps to keep everything organized. If you are looking for a small bag to carry your essentials then this is the bag for you.

I bought this bag in the Go Wild pattern. The black and yellow color wave is so versatile. I don't like big purses, so this is a perfect size. I carry two check books, the small Vera cosmetic (in the matching Go Wild, of course), a very slim wallet, and a few other small odds and ends. The outside zipper pocket (or inside) is great for the Samsung Galaxy Phone with an Otter Box and also for keys. I don't use the push-lock closure pocket because I find that time-consuming to fasten. I think zipper pockets are more secure.The front push-lock pocket would hold several slim items. I love that I can use it cross-body for hands-free shopping or as a shoulder bag!

My Everyday Bag
This is my favorite VB bag for everyday use. I own way too many styles that just hang in my closet - not so for this one! I keep my wallet (Euro Wallet) in the back zipper. In the main compartment I keep my mirror cosmetic case, feminine products in a coin purse, manicure set, and tech case (holds chargers and accessories). In the little slip pockets I hold my inhaler, tissues, a pack of gum, a pen, a pencil, and a stylus. My iPad mini fits in the front flap pocket. When not in use, I toss my iPhone (in otter box) in the back zipper with my wallet. There is still room for more! I absolutely love this bag!
