Mini Frame Crossbody
Great bag for around the complex where I live
I only would use a small bag like this for around the community where I live. But boy this bag fits so much for such a small thing. I've received so many compliments on it! I bought it in the Ribbons pattern. You wouldn't believe what I can fit in there!
I have a coin purse that matches that goes in the purse. It has coins in it for bingo and the vending machines, bills for sales going on in the lobby, chapstick for the dry winter season, erasers for my mechanical pencil, nail clippers, and a Swiss Army knife (has toothpick, tweezers, nail file, bottle opener, scissors, phillips screwdriver, and flat head screwdriver).
Inside the purse is a pen and pencil set, tissues, band aids, cotton swabs, eye drops, emergency medical card, health insurance card, donor card, eye glass cleaning cloths, personal business cards, cough drops, perfume bottle, mirror, flashlight, batteries, nail file, backscratcher, pill box, and EarPods (headphones) for my iPhone, and my iPhone. In the outside pocket it has a booklet on faith, a booklet on hope, and pink post-it notes. The coin purse takes up the most space. I could easily fit more in there if I consolidated.
It's amazing what you can do with it. I use it as a crossbody or shoulder bag. Or you could just use the handle and stuff the strap in the side pocket.
This bag makes me feel organized and I love it. What an amazing bag! Highly recommend!

Retro, yet trendy
This may be the cutest bag ever in the history of bags. As soon as I saw this bag, I knew I had to order it for my 16 year old great-niece for Christmas. I can't wait to see her face when she opens the gift. In Marina Paisley, the little bag, with roomy interior, looks retro, like a 1950's starlet, yet very chic and current. Cute. Cute.

Perfect Little Purse
I am a big Vera Bradley fan and own several bags. I own the Mini Frame Crossbody in Canterbury Cobalt. This has been a perfect bag for me. I am a mom and I often need to carry multiple bags. This bag fits perfectly in a diaper bag or my work bag and is easy for me to carry when I'm out and about on my own. I am able to fit 3 cards in each of the 3 card slots (so a total of 9 cards). Inside I have my cell phone, keys, small brush, lip-gloss, hand sanitizer, lotion, tissues, a couple pens, my compact zip-around wallet (in Canterbury Cobalt), and I have room to spare! I love the outside pocket for notes or coupons. The clasp works very well and the strap stays on perfectly. Not only is it practical and functional but it is also a very attractive bag and works for any event. This is now my favorite Vera Bradley bag and I would certainly recommend it!

Not Just Adorable.....
The Mini Frame Crossbody is absoutely adorable. I purchased it in Canterberry Cobalt which is beautiful. The frame design is what initially attracted me. However, this little gem has super functionality without all the confusion of the usual crossbody. The outside pocket fits keys or a cell phone or anything you want. Inside there are 3 credit card slots, but you can put a couple more if you so choose. There's also a cell phone pocket on the inside which could be used instead for a lipstick and a small mirror. This handbag expands at the bottom, so you can become quite creative on what else you would like to carry. The adjustable strap is the perfect length for me as I prefer to wear mine as a shoulder bag and it's not dangly whatsoever. I also purchased the matching Clip Zip ID which I will use for my license, medical cards and money. I'm quite pleased!!!

So cute with lots of room!
I love this purse! It looks small but holds more than you think. The three slot pockets are great for credit cards, store rewards cards etc. These slots may feel tight at first but I am able to fit three cards into each slot. I added a Vera Bradley coin purse to keep money easy to reach. I also added the Zip ID to hold my driver's license and insurance cards. The crossbody strap is removable and easy to store in the purse. Without the strap, this purse is delicate and very feminine looking. Perfect for an evening out. With the strap, it is great for hands free shopping or everyday errands. Besides the zip ID and coin purse, it holds a comb and small hair accessories, personal products, pen, paper and the front slot is perfect for my phone or if you prefer, a phone fits inside the purse in the slip pocket. The top, metal closure keeps everything closed and secure. If you like a small purse, this is perfect!

Fantastic little *BIG* bag
It may be a small bag but holds a lot; credit cards, halo(pocket, power charger), comb/pick, coin purse, iPhone, iPod, ear buds, cable to charge, reading glasses, pens, candy life savers, gum, mirror, tissues, personal girls stuff, and money.
Love how quickly it can change from a cross body to shoulder bag! It's a fantastic bag to carry to work, shop, or travel with.

Perfect size for evening out
This is the perfect handbag for an evening out and would be definitely a hit in the classic black. Please please do the solid black.

I LOVE this bag!! It's small but spacious. I love that the cross body strap detaches and that you can put it in the outside pocket. inside there is 3 great card pockets, i recommend putting your most important cards in two of the slip pockets, and money in the other. Then my favorite part is the phone pocket (thats what I use it for) it fits my iPhone in it perfectly! the only thing i don't like is that the purse doesn't have a zippered pocket for chain, but thats it. The great thing about this bag is that I have braces so I have a lot of teeth products, and it doesn't take up a lot of space.
