I absolutely love my Vera tote! I currently use it for work. It's big enough to carry my Vera Bradley cooler, my Vera Bradley agenda and a pair of shoes. I used to contantly misplace my desk key. Now, I keep my desk key on my Vera Bradley lanyard which conveniently clips to the pocket of my tote. The mulitiple pockets keep me organized. I constantly get compliments on my tote as it coordinates with my cooler and lanyard. It's everything I ever wanted in a tote and more!

Perfect Knitting Tote!
The Vera is the perfect bag for knitting supplies. It has lots of room and the inner pockets are great for needles and other small things you might need. I also love the length of the handles and the height of the bag. I definitely recommend it! My favorite Vera Bradley purchase :)

Perfect for every use!
I love my Vera tote in the Flower Shower. I got this bag for my birthday when I needed something more to carry stuff in for school along with my backpack. This tote is great for every use. I usually carry a laptop in it along with other things. I took it out of town with me and had it loaded with a laptop, camera, movies, and water bottles and it was able to accommodate everything. Definitely recommend this product!

Great daily tote.
I was nervous getting this tote bag because of it's size. I wanted a larger tote bag for an everyday tote/purse. I love it, I can carry all my stuff and put my lunch bag in it too. All the pockets are great to organize. I also just bought the zip zip wristlet in one of the new patterns. That's what I use to run in a store and then I can put my purchases in the tote bag when I get back to the car. It's so nice just to have to carry one bag. Great bag!

Vera Tote Great for Hardanger
Hi. I bought my Vera Tote in a red, white and black paisley in Ohio years and years ago. I have been using it for my Hardanger Embroidery. I just love it. It has been fun reading the reviews to see just how so many women use it in so many different ways. You can't beat the sales indeed and I just might get two. I want one for my "On-the-move" quilting nightmare (I say that lightly) of a hexie project! I've been working on this for many years and finally decided on a final layout and am just working towards that! Anyway, it's great for my crafts and I would love to travel with one too.

Vera saved my commute
I started a new job at the beginning of the year and had to start going downtown. This meant parking in a garage and walking to my office. When I started, I was given a backpack bag by my employer to carry all my work related items. At first this seemed great as I like backpacks and they are easier on your back. But I learned that with the in and out of elevators, going through a revolving door to my office, and the security turnstiles that the backpack was more trouble than it was worth. I needed a bag large enough to carry all my essentials, but one that was no so big it would be a challenge for all the above mentioned commute pains. I found the VERA in my local store and LOVED the Flower Shower pattern. This bag can comfortably hold my padfolio, iPad, laptop, and kindle (for lunch reading) in the main compartment. In the various slips I have my laptop cords, my kindle and iPad cords, pens, pencils, highlighters, Tide to-go stick, lotion and antibacterial gel with room to spare. In the front slip I have my badge and parking garage pass. I have yet to use the outer zip because I still have room on the inside. I even have enough room for the days I play sand volleyball after work to fit my change of clothes inside the bag. This thing is amazing. It is so great that I have even started just grabbing my small zip around wallet and phone out of my purse and adding it to the bag so I don't take my purse with me. Excellent bag for downtown commuting.

Great for everyday use
I absolutely LOVE my Vera bag! Anyone around me can attest to that because of how much I exclaim my love for my bag.
I'm a full time college student and it's perfect for holding my laptop, snacks, wallet, etc. I'm going on vacation soon and can't wait to bring it! I'm a highly organized individual and this bag certainly helps me to do so. :)

Mom bag Extraordinaire!!!
I am a working mom of three kids ranging in age from 9 months to 9 years. We are an EXTREMELY active family and I have to prepare for a lot...even though I do not over prepare. I also HATE carrying a diaper bag and purse, one bag must do it all! I went to my local vb distributor to get the Emily for my mom bag as my current vb is too small and saw the Vera-love at first sight!! This bag is cute and super organizable with all the pockets!! I have it packed for business with diapers, wipes, sunscreen, a makeup bag, cell phone, work and personal keys, a chapter book, wallet, baby food and snacks for everyone with room to spare! I love that I can grab it and go and know that I still have room to toss in the extras-ie whatever the hubby decides to toss in, or the kids for that matter. It is the perfect purse for a busy mom.

The perfect size tote!
I just received my Vera Tote in English Rose. It is absolutely gorgeous! It is a perfect size and I can see myself using this alot , so I better order more colors! My only issue was that the stitching along the top was not tight and the white thread was exposed in some areas. I am returning it and have re ordered the bag; I am hoping the quality of the new bag is up to standard. This is why I gave the Vera 3 stars. If it were in perfect condition it would have gotten 5 stars for sure! I will update once I receive my new bag.
