Love This Tote!
Just received my Tote Sweet in Slate Blooms and I love it. It's just the RIGHT size. Same beautiful quilting with a leather shoulder strap and accents. There is a big zip pocket and two large open pockets on the inside for lots of room and organization. No zipper closure but the magnets on mine work just fine. The strap is a tad slippery but I mainly carry my bags by the hand or over my arm. Room for everything. Highly recommend.

Pretty to look at? Love the detail
Very pretty to look at. The strap slips off shoulder when you slightly bend to put something in your shopping cart, etc. Overall, I like ease of accessing ones stuff inside tote. Wish it had an outside pocket.

Small but pretty
The reviews I read on this were spot on. Strap is a bit fussy to keep on the shoulder and in less than 2 hours the magnet dropped out of the top trim! Trying to decide if I should return. Love, love, love the look of this and received compliments in the few short hours I carried it. Not a huge fan of the quilted look most Vera's display, though I love some of the patterns, so this was a good compromise for me with the little bit of leather. Wish it had a longer strap too. 50/50 on recommending it. Had to answer one way or the other for review to post.

When I saw this bag in the store I had to have it. But after using it for a week I have to agree with the other reviews about it not staying closed. I really liked the size of the bag but I had to return it and instead I got the larger tote style, which I like but is a lot larger bag than I am used to carrying.

Received this on as a gift and am a little sad in the value. The magnet on one side just disappeared and the strap is too slippery and falls off my shoulder. Love the pattern however!

Baroque Tote Sweet
Love the color combo mix on this bag. Unfortunately the magnet was missing from one side of this bag. I contacted Vera Bradley and they replaced it with another one that works great and has the two magnets to keep the purse closed. Thanks!
A note: Items will be able to fall out of this purse as there is not a zipper closer, just two magnets.

I am new to Vera Bradley. This being my first VB bag, I was so excited.
However, I must admit, I am rather disappointed. The magnets to keep the bag closed do not work. My bag is always wide open. Also, this bag is rather small.
It is really cute. I would not recommend this bag.

I recieved the Tote Sweet in Twirly Bird Pink as a present from my mother. Not usually a fan of the color pink, but I love the patterns and the color on this bag! I'm using it for a lunch bag for work and it's perfect. It holds my water bottle, book, lunch menu items and silverware. The magnet works just fine on my bag, but I'm not putting a ton of stuff in it either. The pockets and zippered pocket on the inside prevent little things from getting lost on the way to work too, like sunglasses or pencils. I have nothing negative to say about my Tote Sweet!

Perfect for school
I got this purse for my birthday and use it almost everyday. It is great for school, I'm in 9th grade. The magnetic closure doesn't work well, It may have something to do with the thicker fabric at the top. It doesn't bother me that it doesn't close though because I have nothing of value in it. I can fit pencils, lipgloss, a wallet, and so much more in it. I love the handle, since it's not regular fabric, it won't wear through. I love this purse and it still looks brand new. Good job, Vera!
