Vera Bradley Signature Print All in One Crossbody
As I walk with crutches I find this item very helpful. It contains all I need most days.
I just received mine a few days ago in the pattern Citron. I finally got a chance to put all my stuff in it. I love it. I did not find the card pockets too small at all. Only one (larger than most cards) did I have to trim a little. Everything else fit in the slots nicely. Very well made as usual for Vera Bradley. What I love it that it fits in my purse but I can grab it alone with the cross body strap or the wrist strap. I have those straps in the bottom of my purse so I can pick either one. I do not carry a large purse either. I got all my cards in it. Room for my cell phone but I do have a smaller cell phone. A place for my hearing aid batteries too. I like the colors. Would highly recommend if you need a nice multi-purpose cross body, wallet, or wrist carry. Very happy with mine.
Love it but changes would improve it
I travel a lot and am not a big pocket book person. I just love this crossbody design including the separate "enclosed" section with snapping cover for my cell phone.
What would really make this go the extra mile is extending the dimensions by an inch in all directions (height, length, width) and the addition of a side storage area to store a passport and a side pocket for traveler's checks / foreign currency.
I think this would add a lot more value and open up a lot more opportunities - especially for travelers that just want that little something to take with them when they are on the road for business or pleasure.
Need A Little Bigger
I would love something like this that my samsung phone and check book would fit in. I would slip this in bigger Vera tote and take the small purse in to work or run into the store.
Most Used VB Item For Me!
This is my go-to weekend bag! My iPhone 5 with case slides snugly in the front compartment and all other accessories needed for my busy on the go life!
Good but could be great with some adjustments
Overall, I am pleased with the All in One Crossbody, but I think it could be better. I prefer to carry my check register with me. This item is too short to accommodate one, so I had to cut one down to fit. More importantly, the slots to hold credit cards, debit cards, health insurance cards, etc. are just too small. Cards will fit in, but the fit is so snug that it is difficult to get the cards out. The fabric has no "give" to it, so it's not going to stretch. The zippered compartment to hold loose change is also very small. It is very difficult to get coins out without dumping them onto a counter. For those who have fully embraced the digital world, these complaints aren't important, but, for those of us who still occasionally use cash, they make using the All in One Crossbody a bit cumbersome. I will say that the outside pocket is great. Apparently it will hold a Smart Phone. My phone is dumb - it just makes phone calls, so I keep it in my pocket and use the pocket on the Crossbody to hold a packet of tissues.
so sick of iphones only
I purchased this as a grab and go wallet and cell phone wristlet. I have a samsung smart phone. I have ordered similar Vera wallets before with no luck because the wristlet was made for an iphone. I purchased this one hoping that Vera had figured out that there are a lot more smart phones out there that are NOT iphones! No such luck. Once again this wristlet would probably fit an iphone perfectly. Let's get with the program Vera.
I love this, use it all the time. Cross body so I don't worry about sitting it down and forgetting it. Bought one for my twelve year old granddaughter she loves it.
THIS IS ADORABLE BUT...
I received this and it is adorable but it should be made a little larger. It is very hard to put your credit cards in the slot; the change purse is too small and doesn't hold much change and it is difficult to get the change out; and forget about putting an I-phone 5 with a protective Otter case in the front flap -- it isn't going to fit. Unfortunately, it had to be returned.
I have bought a few of Vera Bradleys purses and had been quiet satisfied with them. I bought this bag in the ribbon print, it is cute, a little tight, and a little small. The card pockets are a little snug, but maybe they needto be broken in. All in all it is a pretty little purse for a fast run to the store, and I can put it in my big purses if needed. If possible can u make one like this about two times bigger in size I think you would have a winner in a bigger size.
Make this in black microfiber or solid color
Try as I might, I can't get my head around the Vera Bradley prints. They never match my outfit or I have to have 2 or 3 to make sure I have one for every outfit which is good for Vera Bradley, but not good for me. I bought one of these in a great print (even waited on the Waitlist for it) and when I finally got it I LOVED the functionality. Better than any I have seen yet. Perfect size. Can be used several different ways. Vera Bradley hit a home run. BUT it sent it back because I don't see me using a printed crossbody, Sorry Vera Bradley. It's me. Just not a pattern girl. Now I see Vera Bradley is releasing black microfiber products, this I can get behind. Please make this in black microfiber and I'll buy one immediately and several for gifts. Or how about solid colors on the outside and Vera Bradley prints on the inside? This would be a home run.
