Side by Side Tote
great multi use bag
just rcvd my 2nd of this style purse today in the mail. the color me coral is a beautiful print. much more vibrant than the pic shows. i wanted 1 that had more summery colors. my other 1 is the brown/blue discontinued pattern. i can put so much in this purse w/out it bulging or being uncomfortable. never know when ur going to need to have the xtra space to put kids/husband's things. this purse has the room to hold it. just love it! the only thing i wld change about it is it wld b nice if the straps were a bit longer. but that's not stopping me from buying this style purse/tote bag!

I know you have read in the other reviews how this bag won't stay closed....SO WHAT! I love this bag. I load it up during the day as a work bag carrying out going mail to the post office and picking up mail or shopping or the bank. The bag is roomy and easy to see inside because of the wide opening, BUT at the end of the day when i have lightened it up it is a really cute bag. Everyone comments on it and the fabric. So if you are looking for something unique and a good multi task bag look no further. Thanks VB you have done it again!

I just purchased this and agree with the reviews saying it won't stay closed. You need to put additional magnets in the top and then perhaps it would work. Basically, I'd rather have a zipper and would not recommend this particular bag.

PERFECT for Everyday!
This bag is the perfect size. The outer pockets hold my keys and iPhone for quick retrieval. The magnetic closure is strong, but does stay open if overstuffed. I love it in my 30's and my mom in her 70's loves hers, too. I get more compliments on this bag than any of my other VB bags.

This is a fantastic bag! I use it as my purse instead of a 'tote'. Ive seen some reviews with customers complaining that the bag doesn't stay closed, but Ive packed mine full and Ive not had a problem with it closing! The shape of this bag fits perfectly under your arm and even though it is a bigger bag it does not feel bulky at all! I have a lot of Vera purses but this style is the one i always keep coming back too! Love it!

I bought this bag and wasn't quite sure about it when it arrived. The shape is eye catching and I love all the inside and outside pockets. Like others have said.... It doesn't close perfectly if you have too much in it (I'm an over packer) and it seems that the handles would sit so much better if they were rolled. I may even attempt to fix that somehow on my own. that being said... The bag has grown on me and with stuff in it, stays upright and carries everything I need for my day at work.

Love this bag
I received alot of VB bags for Christmas, and I love all of them. This was one of the bags I got from my sister and I also bought this bag for my mom.
I love the outside pockets for my phone, keys, chapstick, etc. The inside pockets are great for all of the other things that mom and I want to have a specific home so we're not digging around for them.
Hers came in Night and Day, mine came in Rhythm and Blues. Both patterns rock, and the bag itself it awesome.

Disappointed with this bag
I liked the size of the bag & the pcokets but the bag will not stay closed no matter how little I place in the bag. Since the bag is constantly open my valuables are visable and it's not safe for me to use this bag.

I am a huge Vera fan... That being said, I am very unhappy with this purse. It only stays closed when I have almost nothing in it. A pusre this size should have a better closure!!!

Love love love it!!!
I do not ever take time to write reviews, But I just love this pure! It holds everything so well. Even my tall water bottle in the outside pocket. I keep keys and phone in the other outside pocket. Its sooooo handy. Please please keep making this purse. I want it in some of the new patterns. I'm 56, but my daughter who is 25 loves it too. She asked for one for her birthday present. Its the best style. The only drawback is that the magnet does not keep it closed if its too full. I want it in the new winter pattern 2012 so bad.
