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!

This bag is a nice medium size and the drawstring closure seems secure. There is plenty of room for my Euro Wallet, eyeglass case, phone, Tune In case, Tech case, small brush, mints, pens, and keys with space left over. The outside front pocket is big enough for my iPhone 5 with Otterbox to fit in vertically or horizontally. The 2 inside slip pockets and 1 zip provide nice organization for smaller items. The faux leather is very soft and the strap is more than long enough for me to wear crossbody and I am 5'11". The shape of the bag is nice and doesn't feel too bulky at the hip. I think this will be a great bag for summer!

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.
