Knot Just a Clutch
My favorite VB bag :D
I own several VB bags, and this one is by far my favorite. It's a lot bigger than I expected, but that makes it so much better! The clean, crisp lines make it elegant enough for a night out, but it holds a LOT so its functionality make it ideal for everyday use for minimalists like me.

I ordered this clutch because it was one of the few remaining items in Symphony in Hue, a pattern I love for all of it's pretty colors. I also ordered the Villager tote and the Large Duffel, thinking I would have a perfect set for summer vacation travel. According to the dimensions listed, I thought the Knot Just a Clutch would fit inside the Villager so I could carry a tote for a day trip and it would hold the clutch that I could remove for shopping. The clutch is too wide to fit inside the tote. Not a big deal, just not what I expected. The clutch is pretty and the knot is a nice detail. The strap makes it sit just below your arm so the drop is a bit short for the way I like my shoulder bags. Still trying to decide whether to keep or return it.

Perfect smaller bag
I have several VB totes for work, but needed something smaller at times. This bag is perfect. With the strap snapped inside, the length of the rolled strap works as a shorter over the shoulder. The inside has enough pockets, plus there is a zipper pocker on the outside rear of the bag. It's not a small tote, but I think it's about the perfect size for me. And of course the Poppy Fields makes for great colors that I can wear with anything. I love it and it's a great alternative (especially for the sale price) to my great VB totes (love my Squared Away the best). Thanks Vera Bradley for the great designs and the sale prices.

Planned On Using It As A Crossbody...
I was a bit dissapointed with this item. I was looking for a crossbody and when I found the "knot just a clutch" I thought it would be perfect. I was wrong. In the description it said 35 inch strap but when I recieved it the stap was only about 23 inches. I love vera bradley but this was not my best purchase.

Knot what I was looking for
The bag is ADORABLE, however I purchased it for my daughter (11) because she is starting to carry purses. Usually clutch means small. This is a sizeable purse. It is much longer and wider than I expected.
Quality is exceptional, the purse was lovely, but it was too structured (very stiff) and too big for what I was expecting. I believe that I could have put most of the contents from my large purse into this clutch...which doesn't seem very "clutch" like to me.
Don't want to discourage anyone...its just not a dainty bag. I returned the bag and purchased a smaller VB bag for my daughter.

Knot a Crossbody
This is a super cute bag but I misunderstood the 35" strap in the description to mean you could wear this bag as a shorter crossbody. I wanted to clear up the dimensions for any other ladies who also might make the same assumption.
Each end of the strap snaps into the bottom of the bag on each side, so you lose the equivalent depth of the bag (6") on both sides from the strap's length.
The actual available strap is 23" (35" minus 12"). Because the bag is so wide, that doesn't leave much strap above it. The drop from the top of the strap to the top of the bag is about 9", making it a high shoulder bag.
Just a heads up.

I was looking for an evening bag that I can get for my 10 bridesmaids to go with their dress. I went back and forth between this clutch and a few others and am so happy with my choice. All 10 came at once and they were better and bigger than I thought. I wanted to make sure that it was a clutch they could actually put stuff in, yet small enough to use for an evening event. You can detach the strap with a simple snap that is not seen towards the bottom sides of the bag, and you can fit a camera, wallet and a few other needs for the night with room to spare!
I choose Hello Dahlia because it had the color of the dress my girls are wearing mixed in. The only thing I can same I am sad about is that I did't order one for myself :(

Perfect Little Bag
Love this bag so much I own six! Perfect size, good organization and great style. It does the job despite its small size. Always get compliments. Surprisely, a few women were not aware that VB made this bag. Really annoyed that it was not available in the deco daisy pattern. That shade of red is perfect! Imagine my surprise and disappointment when I found out this style is being discontinued from the VB line. What are "they" thinking?
