Get Carried Away Tote
If you only buy one bag, buy this one!
I purchased this bag on a whim in the airport because the paper tote bag I had been carrying was starting to tear and hurt my hands. Although I already owned several Vera totes and duffel bags I decided that I needed to be comfortable for my travels, as I do a lot of (international) traveling I am SO GLAD I made that decision. Honestly, this is hands down the most valuable tote I own. It's not only enormous, but perfectly organized! It has a pocket big enough to fit my Kindle, one for my day planner, one for my iPod, and lined pockets for the water bottle I always keep with me! I use the outside pockets for my keys, and cell phone so I always know where they are. I find the biggest challenge with tote bags is digging through them to find your stuff and this bag totally eliminates that problem! I carry it to work (I'm a teacher) and it has room for all my daily needs as well as my gym clothes, my lunch bag, and my teaching supplies. It is seriously the BEST bag ever. And for all of you who are wondering about taking it with you as a carry on - it's the ONLY bag I'll use anymore. It fits easily into overhead compartments and can even be slipped under the seat in a pinch (and it zips so you don't need to worry about anything falling out) BUY THIS BAG!

Great Diaper Bag
I decided to get a VB diaper bag when I was pregnant with my second child and I thought the Baby Bag was way too small. I was drawn to this one because of the outside end pockets (a must for me because I ALWAYS carry a drink with me). At first it seemed too huge and I wasn't sure if I'd want to carry it around all the time, but now with my two little ones, I don't know how I'd live without it! My only complaint is that it fits so much that it gets really heavy and its hard to stuff into the storage compartment on a stroller, but I guess that's my own fault for having to carry around so much stuff. Great bag, I think I'll get another one.
Tip: if using as a diaper bag, a matching Large Cosmetic bag works great for holding diapers, wipes, and a changing pad!

Perfect for Dancers!!
I recently went to a dance convention in NYC and this bag was a HUGE help. Being that there are more than 200 dancers in a tiny ballroom and each one has a dance bag with them, there is little space. This also makes it hard to spot your bag and change shoes in between classes. That's why I was thankful for the get carried away bag. This bag was easy to spot from across the room and held all of mine and my two friends' belongings. This is what it held:
~3 pairs of jazz shoes
~3 pairs of sneakers
~3 pairs of ballet shoes
~3 pairs of lyrical shoes
~7 water bottles
~3 pairs of sweatpants
~3 pairs of socks
~a few granola bars and pretzels
This bag is also great for dance competitions and recitals, as it can fit anything and everything under the sun. Not to mention, it's adorable and all of your dance friends will be jealous!
