Triple Zip Hipster
I love this bag!! I was never into the Hipster as I felt you were limited to only putting flat things in it so it wouldn't jut out awkwardly. This bag has an almost gusset like panel on the sides that allows it to stretch to accommodate your stuff without looking bulky. The middle pocket is great because it puts things midway up the bag so it's not super bulky on the bottom. I was very impressed with how much I could fit in it. All the little pockets are great. I especially love the small slip pocket on the back where my keys go or you could fit a cell phone, but I used it recently when travelling and slipped my hotel key card in there for easy access.
I'm thinking about putting up a video review because there's nothing really out there about this bag and I always find those really helpful. If you're on the fence and need an essentials bag this is great, plus the price is on point. It can also fit an ipad. I got it in African Violet which reads a little deeper in color in person, and I really think it's beautiful. Even though I'm normally not an animal print fan the leopard print isn't really obvious on the exterior print, it just reads the deep blue with the accent colors.
I'm super impressed!

New favorite hipster!
I love any kind of crossbody so as soon as I saw this new hipster in a preview ad, I knew I had to have it. When the new fall patterns came out, I went to my local Vera Bradley retailer and bought this hipster along with a matching euro wallet in the new ziggy zinnia. It is slightly larger than the regular hipster which I found to be too small for me. In the largest zipper compartment I keep my euro wallet, glasses case, a smaller planner, and my checkbook. In the middle zipper compartment I keep cosmetic items such as a compact, lip glosses, VB manicure set, an extra fingernail file, and medicine such as Tylenol. In the bottom compartment I keep my sunglasses, VB pocket papers and then, and my keys. There is a little slip pocket on that back of the bag that I use to keep my phone in. This purse is great and I would recommend it to anyone!

Lots of options. Great for organizing and safety.
I love this bag! I just bought another one to go with more of my outfits. The bag allows you to carry your personal items you have to have everywhere and you can keep them organized and safe. There are three zippered compartments, two are outside of the bag. The main bag is zippered with another zippered compartment inside the bag. One of the outside zipped compartments has two pockets to keep small items you want to keep handy within reach like chap/lipstick, pens, a comb, glasses. In the other outside you can put a wallet, cell phone, keys. Or you can use the deep pocket on the other side of the bag for your phone or a water bottle. Lots of options for your personal preference. I can fit my iPad and wallet in the actual bag zipped for safety with plenty of room to spare. And there is another zippered compartment on the inside for more personal stuff. Lots of options. Great for organizing. Great for safety.
