Sleek, functional, versatile; best crossbody ever
I own several (8) of the print Vera hipsters, and have really liked them. My husband bought this for me, in cobalt, for Christmas. It is beautiful, holds everything I need, and because it is microfiber, it keeps that lovely slim profile better than the cloth hipsters.(too easy to overload a cloth hipster with unnecessary items and have a bulged look.) I love the thicker quilting on this bag...makes it much more durable.
On the back is a full zipper which holds all those items you want to keep private. Front zipper and slip pocket are great for easy, quick access to phone, coupons, etc. The three slip pockets on the inside hold my hand sanitizer, pen and pencil, and my wallet (which is actually a man's trifold...try it ladies; It holds everything and fits in most slip pockets.)
I actually like the structure of the strap and find it very functional.
I'm sure it's just personal preference, but I am a small built woman and like a hands-free purse that holds all of my daily items without looking like I'm carrying luggage. This is so sleek and attractive...for casual or dress.

Great for travel
I bought this in Magenta and used it for a 2.5 week business trip. Fabulous. Great as a crossbody and elegant as a shoulder bag. Well-thought out pockets inside and out. It is roomy enough to hold essentials yet sleek enough to not look bulky. Love love. thinking about getting one in cobalt!

Great in solid colors!
I LOVE this bag! I wear it only as shoulder-strap, not crossbody. I like it because it can look dressy if needed. The outside pockets are a must for me and there are three of them. I would have liked a zippered pocket inside also. I am experimenting as to whether or not the stiff strap will slip off my shoulder. In the prints, the strap is soft fabric and stays on my shoulder. I got the black, only color available. PLEASE make other colors! You used to have a red but from reviews I see it was NOT a TRUE RED, but rather an orange-red which would not be good. How about Navy or Lime Green or True Red or Fuschia? I have many of the prints in various styles and love them, but since I almost always wear a print shirt or blouse, they don't get too much use. Solid colors are great! I can use the fun prints for my wallet, cosmetic case, and all the other smaller items that go in my purse!
