Great Wallet with a Couple Design Flaws
This wallet is sleek and pretty, and the magnetic closure allows for quick access. It has plenty of card slots, especially for a wallet so slim -- prior to this, I used a Sleek & Chic Wallet, and everything transitioned without a problem. This one is thinner than my other wallet, but noticeably longer.
There are two design flaws, as far as I'm concerned: 1) The most annoying issue is that the ID window opens in the opposite direction as every other card slot. If your wallet sits horizontally in your purse, this will not be an issue. However, any time my wallet is in a vertical position, either my ID or my credit cards run the risk of dumping onto the floor. This was a poor design decision. 2) The zippered coin purse on the back is nice, but I would have preferred a double gusset. The single gusset is a little tight, which makes it difficult to search for specific coins.
Otherwise, this is a nice addition to the VB wallet collection. If those two issues were fixed, it would be a five-star item for sure.

Beautiful but not functional for me...
I just received this wallet. It is beautiful, functional and has compartments for everything... my only tiff about it is that its huge. I know thats my fault for not carefully reading the dimensions but i was hoping for something a bit smaller. its too big to fit in my smaller shoulder or cross over purses with other things i need in my purse, such as my hand cream, brush etc. I hope that Vera Bradley makes another wallet just like this one but just smaller. Its a shame because I absolutely love it but i think Im going to return it since like i said it doesn't fit well in my usual smaller purses.

I have the purple leopard color. I added a clip on strap. The magnet is great. Clips shut very well. Love everything about it.
