Very nice, but small
This is a beautiful bag, but it is a little too small for everyday use. I'm a mom of 2 teenagers, and this bag just doesn't hold everything I need....wallet, cosmetic bag, large set of keys, sunglasses.....it doesn't all fit! That being said, it's great for outings when you only need to take your keys and wallet, and it looks more sophisticated that VB's print bags.

Beautiful, functional purse
I bought this purse in wine; the color is different from the way it appears on the web site--the burgundy is closer to purple than to dark red. But it is a gorgeous color. I loved it so much that I bought 2 more pieces in this color (the flap all in one and the overnighter). The bag doesn't hold as much as a hipster, but it holds a fair amount: a fat wallet, a double eyeglass case with 2 pairs of glasses, a set of 10 keys, a big sunglass case, and a few smaller items like lip gloss and tissues. I love the clasp on the outer pocket: it works very smoothly and keeps the contents safe. The purse is versatile and looks good with work or casual clothes. The web strap is comfortable, and doesn't cut into my shoulders, the cotton floral lining is pretty and coordinates perfectly with the wine exterior, and the microfiber fabric is soft and smooth to touch.

Great crossbody bag!
I am 62 years old and I bought this bag because I am retired and dont want or need to carry a large purse. I love it because it is simple and yet elegant. To be honest most VB bags are too wild in colors and too big for my taste; however this is perfect. I bought it in expresso and everything I carry fits in this bag. I love the strap too because if you dont wish to carry crossbody (but why would you not want too...) it sits on your shoulder close to your body. I hope VB continues to carry this style, or a similar one, for the mature women who love Vera.

Great Bag for IPAD
I have been looking and looking for a bag for my ipad. I wanted a thin bag. The mini-laptop bag is too bulky. I wanted a strap that I could use to carry it around. And last, I wanted pockets to carry the charger and earbuds and the little camera attachment. Sleeves are great but there aren't pockets to carry the charger around with it. I saw the pushlock and was so happy that it fit my ipad (the original version) perfectly. I even have a keyboard that fits onto my ipad and both fit into the Pushlock crossbody perfectly. It holds the charger, earbuds and camera attachments without adding any bulk. I am so happy I finally found the perfect Ipad bag.
Plus it's pretty!

Great for weekend/Mom on the go
I love love this crossbody. It was larger than I thought but not bulky. The strap is adjustable so I like I can make it a little shorter to wear on my shoulder too. Its a smart look. A place for my cell phone, keys, large wallet.

Not what I hoped for
I wanted a small more business looking purse so I bought this in black. I love the size and the strap that is adjustable. My issue is that the straps are both on the same side and if you leave the purse unzipped it hangs WIDE open and if possible things can fall out. For this first time I'm having to constantly zip my purse. So I will retire it to only use occasionally.

This cross body is a great size. I wish vera would have designed the strap in a better way. Have had trouble with strap getting twisted and up ending purse on several occasions. Would love to return to store but have lost receipt, so i will have to deal with the strap issue.

The fabric for this purse is adorable with the quilting and a beautiful color (I got the burgundy) while looking a little more streamlined than the regular Vera patterned fabric. Not super wide, just exactly fits my three-fold wallet in the bottom but I like my purses to stay close to my body. The strap adjusts super easily and can be made very long if needed. I wish the back pocket was larger to accommodate an 8.5x11" notebook but that's my only complaint and not that huge of a dealbreaker

Perfect iPad bag!
Love this bag! Was looking for a way to carry my tablet devices. My iPad2 fits perfectly in the zip compartment. And, if I need my Kindle too...it fits perfectly in the front flap pocket. I am so pleased.

Hooray for a longer strap!
I am so grateful this crossbody comes with a longer strap (than the prior microfiber crossbody bags). A top zip crossbody bag is so handy. Great organization with all the pockets. Love Vera's solid color bags and this one is a winner!
