This is by far my favorite wallet from Vera, and it's probably my 4th or 5th one. I love the material (reminds me of Fossil brand material); love the closure; love all the space for cards; love the print (got it in Moon Drops); love how it matches my Breakaway Tote in Midnight Stripes (also did a review of it, and I love it, too); and I love that I can use it as a clutch. It's pretty important to me that I can double a wallet as a clutch in a pinch (or when I don't want to change things out), and even though it's not a ton of room, I can still fit the gum and lipstick that I would need for a night out.
Yes, I totally love it (in case you missed the five times I said love above ;-). But I haven't seen anything to be unhappy about it with! One of the reviews mentioned something with the ID part -- I am not sure what issue they are having, but my ID fits in snuggly but not overly snuggly. But, I'm not a fan of having to pull and pull and pull to get your ID out when you need it.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and recommend the wallet.

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.
