Mini Turn Lock Crossbody
Bringing along cell phones is non-negotiable
To the VB mini cross body bag designers: when you're deciding on the dimensions and layout of smaller bags, you should actually try stuffing in the basics to see if it's usable before going to production. We're not trying to fit the kitchen sink. A smart phone, keys, a couple credit cards, cash, and maybe a lip stick is probably the average minimum. Many of your small cross bodies make it difficult to even carry just that. And for those of us with bigger smartphones (I have a Galaxy Note3) definitely forget it.

...it's entirely too small. I bought it thinking it would be good for going to a ball game or something along those lines. I use a Moto Droid Mini phone, which is one of the smaller smartphones out there, in a very slim silicon protector. That, plus a half empty slim purse pack of tissues, and a lip balm was too much for the turn lock to close without a fight. Oh, and I had a $20 bill and driver's license in the center zip pocket. I took it to a ball game, and it was very convenient to have just sitting on my lap, but again, a fight to turnlock if I wanted to check my phone or something.
I'm sure I'll use it again, especially to try to get my money's worth out of it, but unless you're traveling super light (as in, no cell phone), there are definitely better options on this website.

It's Great for On-the-Go
I bought this for myself for Mother's Day. I love it! I do have to use the zip id case for my credit cards, id, etc. because it's too small for a full size wallet.

Perfect Mini Crossbody!
I am just a fool for Vera Bradley's turn lock styles! I love the retired Julia, the newer Turn Lock Satchel and now, the Mini Turn Lock Crossbody. The turn lock detail is just so pretty! This gorgeous crossbody is exactly as stated, mini in size. It is however the perfect size for traveling very light, like to a ball game or concert. It has two interior sections separated by a zippered slim center compartment. It also has a slip-in exterior back pocket which fits my iPhone 4 (in a regular case) perfectly. Inside is enough room for credit cards, money, keys, lip balm or other small necessities. I love the look of the faux leather and with the turn lock detail, it is more sophisticated than other minis. My only wish is that it had an adjustable strap. Otherwise, this is a perfect mini!

I bought this bag a couple of weeks ago, and I'm not sure if I regret it or not. I have an iphone 5c in an otter box and it barely fits. This bag fits the very minimum of stuff you would need. I can't use it often because I just got retainers and the case is too thick to fit in one of the 2 pockets. I can't close the flap, though the zippered pocket is handy for money or any valuables. I also think that this bag costs way too much for what it is.

This is the one I've been waiting for!
Fits my iphone 5 w/ hard case, a lipstick, cash, cards, receipts, a pen and more. Large enough to love and small enough the throw in a tote or hobo. More colors, and solid black please... maybe an adjustable strap too

Great but small
I bought this products a couple weeks ago. It's perfect for a phone (I have the iPhone 4S), a lipgloss and some cash. It's really just for small load carrying. If you over load the purse, it will not lock. If only it could be a smidge bigger. A mini or little hipster is more useful and cheaper.
