Great, but larger than shown
This is definitely a carry ALL bag. It's beautiful while being large enough to carry everything one could need and not need a huge tote bag. The measurements shown are incorrect. It is 12.5" wide and 10" high at the tallest point. If you were to load it up with all it could hold and then try to carry it cross-body, the strap would really cause a problem on your neck, it is very stiff and uncomfortable. But if you plan to use it as a shoulder bag or carry it on your arm, that should not be a problem. I hope Vera Bradley will find a way to make all of the microfiber crossbody bags' straps more comfortable, like they did on the Little Flap Hipster. I do love having the three external pockets in addition to the ones inside. I also appreciate the fact that the strap is made extra long, since I am a plus size woman.

Great downsizing cross body that packs a punch!!!!
I love the sleek line and easy access the TWO front pockets offer for
Cell phone and keys!!! Zippered outside pocket adds great place for
For my receipts, coupons,etc. when shopping. Very easy finding things inside with the pockets & not being to deep. It IS washable in machine that has gentle cycle or hand wash setting. Hang to dry.
Very lightweight, nice to carry after back surgery! THANKS VERA BRADLEY :)

Lightweight and comfortable
I used this while shopping with my toddler and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it was to wear crossbody. I wasn't thrilled with the narrower shoulder strap at first, but it is more comfortable to me than the wide strap on the Clare bag.
This bag held a few diapers, wipes, a VB small cosmetic, Sleek and Chic wallet, coin purse, zip ID, camera, phone and keys with room to spare. The Sleek and Chic wallet can fit into either of the inside slip pockets. There is a generous zippered pocket on the back of the bag and, of course, two slip pockets on the front. I'm very pleased with this bag and will probably purchase another in a spring color.
