I am a huge Vera Bradley Fan! My first purchase was of the all in one wristlet wallet my freshman year of college that lasted me 3 years! Since then I upgraded to the Smartphone wristlet, which was of basically the same style, just with a bigger phone compartment. While I've always liked those styles of wallets for school since it was easy to carry everything, including my phone, around campus, I've seen found I wanted something more "adult' that would hold my growing amounts of cards, checkbooks, change, keys, etc. Well, this fit wallet fits the bill to a tee! I can carry all my cards, with still empty slots, cash, change, keys, checkbooks, chapstick, receipts, EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED! Plus, I can wear it as a cross body! My magnetic closure appears to be very tight so I'm not worried about it coming undone, and it sits very nicely when worn as a crossbody on my hip. I'm never concerned about any of my things fallen out because it is so well designed. GET IT! As a busy college student that is always on the run, its perfect for just throwing in a bag or taking on its own!

Best wallet ever
I own this in Very Berry Paisley. Love that it can be used with or without the strap. It holds everything that I need & love that the iphone 4 fits perfectly. Just ordered in Black for the Fall/Winter months.

I love everything about this wallet. There is plenty of room for all my credit and ID cards. Lots of space for receipts and a coin pocket as well. My cell phone even fist inside. When that's all I need, I can throw it across my body and go. I even buckle my seat belt right over it and never have to worry about leaving it in the car. It's always attached to me. The only thing I wish was that it would zip closed around the edges. I fear that one day my credit cards might slip out. I don't know if that's possible or not, but I would have to that to happen. So for it hasn't been a problem, so I say GET IT! YOU'LL LOVE IT! ! !

fits the Galaxy Note 2
My mom bought this for me, but I don't do cross-body purses so I bundledup the strap and stuck a portion of it into the interior slip pocket and turned it into a wristlet. My Galaxy Note II phone in a Speck Candyshell case fits perfectly (just barely though) into the outer zip pocket on the back of it.

So Much Room in a Small Package
This wallet is great. I purchased it in the Plum Crazy pattern, which is my new favorite. I wanted a wallet that would hold everything I needed plus my phone and knew a wristlet wouldn't do the trick. I fit a checkbook and register, my pen, all the important cards needed that any girl would need. I love how my iphone 4 fits so nicely in the zippered compartment. I constantly change my cell phone cases and haven't found one that doesn't fit. This is a great wallet and would be a great addition for anyone VB bag. I don't use the strap but if I needed to it is great and small and out of the way. The snap is very secure and I haven't had any issues with it coming open no matter how much I stuff in my wallet.

I received this wallet for Christmas and was very excited to see how big it actually was. I love that you can use this wallet without having to fold bills (this is one of my biggest peeves about vera's wallets), and it has plenty of different card holders, bill holders, etc. This wallet features a zip pocket on the outside that fits my Galaxy S2 perfectly in-even with the case. Overall, I really do love this wallet, but one reason that I gave it a four was because of the strap. I get that the purpose of this wallet is the long strap, but it's uncomfortable to use, and I feel like if I was going to the mall or something, it would be very easy to loose because the strap really isn't a secure way to hold it. I always just wrapped the strap around my wrist, but that was always uncomfortable, and after awhile I got frustrated with it and decided to get a new wallet. If you can cope with the VERY long strap, than this really is a great purchase. (The straps do come off!)

Why would I ever want a different wallet?
This wallet was exactly what I was looking for, and I've just purchased my second one. I can't believe how useful this is. I was looking for something that I could carry in my school bag during the day and then take out to go shopping or out to eat without having to move everything into another purse. I have a ton of cards (store cards, punch cards, etc) and most wallets don't have room to put all of those. This one does! I love the phone pocket - it's very big so I never have to fight to get my phone out quickly. I love the 3 large bill slots (one carries a spare key and a small pen, and does so without even making the wallet too bulky). The only thing I wished it had was a place to hook keys for those times when I am without pockets, but I have found that a tiny carabiner clip hooked to the strap works just fine. The strap is a little long, but that's another easy fix - I knotted it. Have had no trouble with the magnetic clip, and I would say mine has gotten very heavy use. Love this wallet and probably won't buy a different style for a long time.

Best wallet ever!!!!
This is the perfect wallet. I always have trouble fitting all of my cards in my wallet and this has plenty if room for those!! The main reason I wanted this wallet is because you can have both a change pocket and a pocket for your phone; most wallets have one or the other. I also love the strap. I work at a mall and it can be a pain to take your entire purse in with you so, I love that I can take this out of my purse and just carry this instead. I never have problems with the magnet, it stays nice and closed. This is by far my favorite wallet and I can't imagine ever using anything else, I even got one for my mom and she loves hers too!!

I received this wallet as a birthday gift in midnight blues. I love the print and love the wallet even more! This wallet is by far the best i have ever owned. It fits all of my stuff and more. The 5 slots above the ID window fits all my debit and credit cards along with insurance cards. The 6 slots on the opposite side fit all my gift cards and loyalty cards. The 3 roomy bill slots fit all my cash, receipts, and other notes i throw in. The coin spot does not get too bulky as well as the extra zip around which i use to hold my gum and phone or keys. With all the stuff i jam inside it never gets too bulky and remains easy to close! I love to use it as a cross body but if i need to carry more things with me i take off the strap and put it in my bag. I love this wallet and plan to buy more in the future! Thanks Vera! (:

Loving this wallet!
I just received this wallet, and I love it. I only gave it a 4 star because I just received it, and I want to see how the wear & tear is on this item. I really like the strap so I can use it as a crossbody. It has alot of compartments for my ID's, CC, receipts etc. The bonus is the big zipper compartment on the back of the wallet. I can put my cell phone, lip gloss and tissues and it all fits, also their is a small change compartment. One thing I would like to see added to this wallet is, a spot for your pen & checkbook, and this would be PERFECT! Looking forward to using this all year round.
