My favorite VB bag
I own dozens of VB bags, including this one in two colors. This is my favorite VB handbag BY FAR! It is the perfect size, comfortable to carry and I get tons of compliments on it. I am very disappointed to hear that it may be discontinued: please bring it back!

Great everyday bag!
I have a Squared Away tote in Suzani and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it! Everything I need fits in it perfectly! I wanted a bag big enough to carry both of my glasses cases. It's so wonderful! It doesn't weigh down my shoulder either while out shopping and carrying it around for a long period of time.

Love this handbag!
Just received my Squared Away in Simply Violet today and already have gotten compliments on it. The Simple Violet color is so pretty. Like the choice I made in ordering this style ,was worried it might be to big but I like it so far. Think it's a keeper!

Best bag ever!
I have never carried any bag that I like as well as Squared Away. I am so disappointed that it will not be available in the new colors I love so much! I have it in 7 colors and wish I had known about it before, so I could have had it in every color available. It is roomy without being heavy or bulky. I adore the outside pockets where you can honstly put just about anything you need handy. I am trying the Glenna next.

No more Squared Away?
I have this bag in Versailles. Of all the VB bags I own, including 3 bowlers of the past, this bag is my all time favorite. It is large enough to carry a lunch and my crocheting and all my other purse stuff. The straps are long enough to go over my shoulder easily. I have stashed this under a seat at the opera and movie theater knowing that I could wash it. It has been washed a number of time and I no longer use the cardboard. Now that it is fading a bit I want to replace it. Where is it? I miss this versatile bag. There does not seem to be any other offered by VB for replacement. I guess I'll use my old Bowlers until Squared Away shows up again.

Good everyday bag.
I just got this yesterday and am finally satisfied with my vera bradley bag choice! I need something large enough to carry my stuff but not be overwhelming because I'm short! It has 2 slanted pockets on one side that are deep--I love them! I don't have to worry about my keys or my phone sliding out of them. I got mine in lemon parfait and just love the colors because I can carry it now and well into spring and summer. I can fit my calendar (which just barely fit in the hipster) in it along with cosmetics bag, a few books, prescription bottles. On the inside, there is a zippered pocket for personal items that the hipster did not have on one side and 3 pockets on the other side. I have extra room even after I put everything from my hipster into the Squared Away handbag. While it looks a little like luggage, I still love it!

Not my favorite Vera
before you put anything in it, the bag is adorable. It tends to lose it's shape when you have your things in it and it no longer retains it rectangular shape. Also, because the zipper goes almost all the way around, it's hard to keep things from falling out when you open it. Definitly not my favorite Vera bag.

Perfect Alternative to A Diaper bag
I have the Squared Away bag in the beautiful Nightingale print (so versatile and pretty, btw) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag! I'm not the type who likes to buy multiples of the same bag (I like variation in my Veras), but this bag is just so EASY that I want more!
It's so easy to put anything you want in it, without it looking crazy bulky, it so easy to wear and not look overwhelmed by it, and everything is so accessible. The two slip pockets on the front are so perfect...great for your phone. I only buy bags with pockets that are easily accessible, as I have two small boys and need to be able to reach a ringing phone quickly.
I love that the zipper opens the bag so wide, perfect for looking for things without creating a mess, because everything is so visible. The three slip pockets and the zipper pocket on the inside are perfect to organize yourself with. And It can hold a lot with looking terrible.
I have carried, my iPad (fits perfectly!) 3 diapers, small wipes case, my VB Snap Wallet, a small cosmetic case, another non VB wallet with my gift cards in it. Lotion, hand sanitizer, notepad, pens, lipgloss, a teether for baby, a small toy, a jar of baby food, a baby spoon AND a ball of yarn and my circular knitting needles! And yes it gets heavy, but not as heavy as other leather non VB bags would with all the same stuff in it.
It holds it's shape quite well, and looks good on the shoulder. The handles do slide off my shoulders but I have narrow shoulders and it only happens when I a wearing my winter jacket or pushing a stroller. It doesn't bulge much, when packed full.
I absolutely love this bag, I have had it for over a year now, and it is the second of my VB bags that I most reach for. The only one that I reach for more than this is my Old style Bowler. You can read my review for that too.
Buy the Squared Away while you've got the chance! I would if it was available for international shipping.
