Vera Bradley All In One Crossbody: A Closer Look

We were all treated to sneak preview of the new All In One Crossbody coming for fall this past weekend.  When you purchased one at $54, you could purchase a 2nd one for 50% off!! That's a great deal and I hope you all got to take advantage of it.  I only purchased one for myself, but I'm still so excited about it.  I'm posting these pics for you guys to get a better understanding of how this is different from the other wristlets currently available.  (These are still online, but there are only a few colors that aren't sold out.)

Your crossbody strap and wristlet strap are removable so you can use whatever one fits you best.  I like that you can choose which side to put the wrist strap on since the metal rings are on both sides.

The front flap opens to cell phone pocket which is secured with a magnet.

My iPhone 5 in a speck case did fit, but it was very tight and I almost couldn't get the magnet to close.  If you have an Otterbox, I don't think this is the wristlet for you.

The first zipper compartment reveals several credit card slots.  I love this because with the All in One Wristlet and Smart Phone wristlet you only get 3 slots.  I need a little extra space!!

You also get the larger cash pocket where you don't have to fold your bills.  Thumbs up Vera!!

The 2nd zipper compartment has another little zipper pocket for change or whatever else you can fit and 2 slots for anything and everything.  I think this will be great for lip gloss and gum during a night out!!

I haven't been using this bag long enough to form a true opinion but from what I can tell I think the crossbody strap is a little too short.  I didn't purchase this with the idea of using it crossbody in mind anyways, so I'm ok with that.

It was so fun seeing these in the new colors, I can not wait until July 9!!

Vera Bradley Baby Survey

Our favorite contributor VeraObsessed sent us the link for the latest survey which focused on some new baby items.  I am not a fan of Lola, but the baby items are absolutely adorable in this print.  I wish some of my friends were having girl's so I could gift these beauties.
