Love the Drawstring Crossbody!
I am a huge fan of the retired Quick Draw that has a similar style to the Drawstring Crossbody. So of course I am so excited that Vera Bradley produced another similar style. This new cross body is so cute and lightweight. It is smaller than the Quick Draw but it is also a lot lighter. And, the faux leather trim is really nice and soft. I think it will help keep the parts of the bag clean that have the most chance of getting dirty (the strap and bottom). I wear my cross body styles very low (at or below my hip) and this one is very comfortable. The front concealed pocket is bigger than it looks and fits my iPhone and lip balm perfectly. Inside are two slip in pockets and a zippered pocket. I really like a zippered interior pocket and was so glad to see one in this style. I purchased this in Flower Shower (too cute) and plan to purchase another pattern right away!

I just bought this bag because I love any kind of crossbody. I love the faux leather straps, however, the strap is perfect for crossbody, but not if you just want to wear it on your shoulder....you can't make the strap short enough....I'm 5'4" and when it's hooked into the last notch it still hangs past my waist. I had to have my husband make me a notch with his leather kit so I can carry this on my shoulder as well as crossbody. It has plenty of room for all your stuff and plenty of pockets. Overall, I'm happy with it....I just wish they made more notches on the strap so you can adjust the length better.

Love the style
This is a fun style to have with the round shape and drawstring. I love the DEEP front pocket to keep my cell phone in as well as the silver Vera Bradley logo tag. The inside pockets help keep things organized as well as the inside zip pocket. Things that need improvement: the adjustable strap needs to be a slider type buckle where it can be adjusted anywhere along the length of the bag OR extra holes need to be added. I am 5'10" and I need to add extra holes if I want to carry this on my shoulder which I plan to do as I am not a big cross body fan and the styling of this round shape would not be comfortable IMO to carry in that fashion. Also, the bag is vinyl not leather. I know vinyl does not have the durability of leather and would much prefer this material. Otherwise, I would recommend this as a fun extra bag to have around for the spring/summer season!
