We haven’t had a landline for years, and I rely exclusively on my cell phone. I need to keep it with me so I don’t have to run around like a crazy person, trying to find it before the caller hangs up, but most of my clothes don’t have pockets. I’ve tried various bags over the years, but sometimes they’re too big and heavy to hold just a phone, or the straps are too wide and irritate my neck. I’ve usually tried leather bags in the past, and leather bags start out heavy before you even add the phone. Vera Bradley has a quilted cloth cell phone case that looks ideal. Small Vera accessory bags are always lightweight, and this Cell Phone Crossbody is stripped down to hold just a phone and a couple of cards in a back pocket. It measures 4.5″ x 6.25″, so it’s big enough to hold bigger phones, like the iPhone 5/5s or the Samsung Galaxy phones. It’s 54″ chain strap is long enough to wear it crossbody, so it’s hands-free, and the chain is narrow enough that it shouldn’t be irritating your neck. It’s available in a variety of color/pattern combinations for $32.00.
