VB Hipster is the perfect bag to shop and travel with. Received this bag 7/5/11. Love size and the pockets. This will make the air trip so much better and convenient for the security lines. It is much larger than I could have hoped for. This is my fourth order for the VB products and I am more than pleased. I will use this website for other VB items. If you are thinking about the quality of items from this site - don't think just do. You will not be disappointed. Thanks for having the VB items.

I really liked this bag before it started to break. The zipper is coming undone from the bag and the fabric is unraveling from the zipper. I don't think I put anything too heavy in it either. I love Vera Bradley bags but the quality is just not there for how expensive they are. It is just cloth and I feel they are expensive for being just cloth.

Purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 11-year-old niece in the suzani pattern. She was very happy with it, and I have to say I wouldn't mind having one myself. Well made, handy pockets and compartments, very stylish.

I bought 2 of these for my daughters (ages 18 and 23) for Christmas. They love them! Lots of zipper pockets in them-which is great! Perfect size for day to day use. I just might have to get one for myself.

My daughter loves this Vera Bradley Hipster that we bought her for Christmas. It was the same price as on the Vera Bradley website but there was a shipping charge if we bought it directly from Vera Bradley. Not only did we save the shipping fees, we were amazed at how quickly we received it. We also bought other things online but everything we bought from Zappos.com came the fastest.

So cute, this bag is small enough to fit inside my larger carry-on bag and big enough to hold everything for travel, including a water bottle. Lots of pockets, adjustable strap and a fresh, fun design! This is my 5th and I think favorite Vera bag. Thanks Zappos!

Love this bag. So convenient, fits on your shoulder perfectly, adjustable strap, and holds so much! I fit my iPad, a magazine, my phone, my Flip!, and so much more. I got it for a trip to Disneyland and it worked so well. Also, you don't have to take it off every time you get on a ride, you can just leave it on your shoulder. A must-buy!

Great go-to bag! It's perfect for those who want to stay hands free; sometimes I completely forget it's with me! Although it looks small, I can fit everything I need no problem. Definitely my favorite Vera Bag!

Wow, just got a little delivery for the UPS man. I knew I liked the print when I ordered it, of course which being why I ordered but when I opened up the box I was absolutely tickled "purple" in this case. This is the most vibrant & beautiful colors. Wow, I absolutely love this print. This is my first Vera Bradley for myself, my daughter has been a fan for several years it just took Mom a little longer to make the switchover, but now I am addicted. I love this pocketbook, I got a feeling this Hipster is going to be just totally hip on me. So if you have ever thought, maybe I'd like to try a Vera Bradley...well stop thinking about it and get ya one!

I wasn't sure this would be large enough, but when I saw there was only one left in the watercolor print, I grabbed it. It may still prove a bit cramped, but it's so pretty, I'm determined to make it work -- just as soon as I've thoroughly Scotchgarded it.

Love this bag! I wore it for 2 days in NYC and it was perfect! It even fit my iPad and did not hurt my shoulders. Fit well over winter, bulky coat as well. The color I got was very bright and cheerful. I plan on using it in Disney next month!

I love this bag, it is slightly small, I was using a large Coach bag before but wanted to down size because it was hurting my shoulder. It would be fine but I have prescription sunglasses and the case for them is bulky and takes up a lot of space.

Okay, I admit that I pack light, and this Vera Bradley hipster is the perfect bag for me. I'm looking to carry around my wallet (Vera Bradley's versatile All-in-One wristlet), a cell phone, keys, a couple of pens, a packet of Kleenex, and my iPad in its cover. This stylish bag is practically designed to carry exactly these items! With the zippered pocket in the back for my keys, and the front snap pocket for my wallet and cell phone, I have easy access to everything I want. And there are still pockets inside the Hipster for additional items that I might want to take along. Throw in the fact that I can lengthen the strap when I want to wear it diagonally across my body (great for trips to the city) and the classy and highly versatile Night and Day pattern and you have the perfect grab-and-go bag. True confession: I might have to buy it in another pattern or two!

This is the bag to take on your travels. A friend gave me this bag in black a few years ago & I recently ordered it from Zappos in navy. It holds all that you need plus tons that you want to carry. I used to pack it & switch it out with my usual purse once I arrived at my destination. On my last 2 trips abroad, I carried the VB Hipster as my only purse and it handles everything easily. Lots of zippered pockets for security and one open pocket in which to slip cell phone, sunglasses, etc. for easy retrieval. Sturdy fabric makes the bag light weight and wide adjustable shoulder straps provide comfort. I easily adjust the straps to go from cross-body to shoulder strap often while traveling. Get this bag if you're a traveler. You won't regret it!

Brands I'd also recommend: Sketchers (Dreamchaser, Dressed Up, Breathe Easy, Savvy) for comfortable yet stylish travel shoes

This bag is the perfect size. I love the pattern as well (Parisian Paisley) as it matches with everything! The only thing that could make it better is having a zip pouch inside the bag, but the 2 slot pouches are good enough. I find myself putting little things like lipsticks, etc in the outside pouches instead of having them float around the main part of the bag. It's big enough to carry a water bottle, my VB wallet, phone and anything else I need!

This is the second type of bag I have purchased from Vera Bradley. I love leather bags but had problems with my shoulder and had to find a lighter weight bag. I also had to decide what to put in the bag to reduce the weight. This bag fills the bill: it is smaller than most bags and it is made of lighter weight material. It is a simple bag and I equate simplicity with good taste.

I used to carry a roomy shoulder bag for work then for weekends switch to small cross body bag. This is the perfect stylish bag for work and weekend. Beautifully made, lays flat on my body, soft long strap, 2 outside zip pockets, 1 outside slip pocket, 3 inside pockets. Love it!

I bought this bag to carry on a trip to Disney World. I am really not a huge Vera fan, but I loved the size of this and the pattern was cute and not preppy/mom looking. It was so comfortable and light to carry. Fit my phone, granola bar, money, sunglasses and a bottle of water. I love that it is a cross-body, so I could carry it without needing my hands. It was small enough to fit in the roller coaster bins when needed. I got home from Walt Disney World and I am still carrying it. It is nice for summer! I have gotten a number of compliments from other moms who are not that big into Vera Bradley either. Zappos' next day shipping is amazing! I love Zappos' free fast shipping and great service!

I really love this purse. It is colorful and light weight. It is deep enough to hold a good sized wallet lengthwise. I am a skinny person, so carrying a huge purse looks silly and is too heavy; but I like to carry a lot of things with me, so this is a good compromise. It holds enough to make me happy and it does not look too bulky.

I love my Vera. Recently, we went to California for a family vacation. It was so comfortable, visiting all the theme parks. It was also large enough to carry a water bottle, camera, and all my necessities!

Love this bag. It's trendy, light for shopping, etc. and room for large wallet, keys, phone, notebook, tissue pack and other things. Lots of pockets and zipper part. I have designer bags that are much too heavy to lug around, so this one fits the bill. The color is very summery and ordering from Zappos was quick and easy.
