Perfect bag for a mom!
I am completely in love with this bag! When my son was born I had the diaper bag and loved the look and functionality of it. As he got a little bit older, I still needed a bag that would hold a lot of stuff, but not necessarily a diaper bag. My husband purchased this bag for me and it is exactly what I was looking for! It is so roomy without being huge. It can hold my wallet, keys, phone, chapstick, etc for me, plus a small package of baby wipes, a few diapers, a sippy cup, and a small toy or two. This is the PERFECT every day bag for a mom of a toddler or for a woman that just likes to keep lots of "just in case" stuff with her! Buy this bag!!

Great "teacher bag" for me
I just received this bag and I love it! There's plenty of room to hold your laptop, planner, files, etc,, that teachers need to carry, as well as your personal items in carryalls or wallets. The three slip pockets on the inside work great for my sunglasses, reading glasses, phone, gum, pens, and other small items you might need. I also have room for my zip zip wallet which holds cash, cards, small mirror, lip balm, lipstick, and small pill box so I can just take it out of the bag if I stop at the store. I adore the Very Berry Paisley and I'm sorry to see it go. This is going to be my favorite bag when I need to carry a large amount of cargo. I would definitely recommend this bag to everyone!

This is a great bag! It's perfect for a change of clothes or essentials for a day out and about. I love the little toggle. Just enough inside pockets to easily grab what you need.

Pretty everyday tote
This has become my favorite everyday go-to tote. It is simple, light weight, not-too-big, and cute--and it carries everything I need in an average day. The simple design shows off the fabric pattern and trim, without being interrupted by pockets and detail.
At first, I wasn't convinced that I would like the hanging pockets, but they work great. In the three pockets, I carry a wallet and iphone5, my sunglasses in a soft case and my (somewhat flat) glasses case, and a water bottle. (A fat Nalgene bottle probably wouldn't fit in a pocket). In the body of the bag, I carry a small zip bag filled with a few cosmetics, pills, and miscellany; a bag with cords and chargers; an iPad in a case; and a small camera. Sometimes, I throw in a small umbrella and a magazine. Other times, I put all my essentials in a small clutch and carry that in the bag, along with an umbrella and water bottle, so I can leave the tote behind while I run short errands. I hook my keys on the toggle strap so I don't lose them in the bottom of the bag. All these things pretty much fill the bag. (I tend to carry small sizes of items and only what I really use, so consider that when judging if this tote will work for you--for instance, I carry one pen, not a handful.) The cute toggle keeps things fairly secure for day to day use, but I prefer a zippered bag for plane trips and places where I must lay the bag down on its side. The straps are adequate, but I would love for VB to use quilted ones. Also, note that there is no outside pocket, but if you keep the contents simple, you can easily find things inside the bag.
The bag is clean and simple--perfect for me!

The Perfect Tote for Every Day Use!
I think this is the best tote to purchase in many patterns because it is the perfect size... not to big and not too small. I didn't want to carry around a diaper bag anymore and this was a great alternative. Moms need to carry more than a handbag can hold and this is stylish and functional. Also, this tote is affordable to own in more than one pattern.

Great Everyday Bag!
I use my tote as a small diaper bag for my 2 year old daughter. It's the perfect size to take along on a quick run to the store. The bag holds a few diapers, wipes, a sippy cup, some snacks, and a few small toys, as well as my wallet and cell phone. Though I had to switch to the Vera bag with the addition of my newborn son, I still use the tote if I take one of the kids to the store.

Most Durable Ever
I have had the same Vera Bradley tote since May, 2010. I have literally used it every single day in lieu of a purse. I am an educator and move around carrying things all the time. I might also add that I am hard on my purses/totes-generally going through several per year. There is not one thing wrong my Vera Bradley tote bag. The only "problem" I have is that I need to get it cleaned. Daily use for nearly four years and it has seen cleaner days. Highly recommend for anyone who needs a dual-duty durable tote bag.

A Vera Classic
I have three of these and I really do love them. I think the pattern placement on the Tote is excellent, especially the border at the top of the bag. This is just a simple tote, but can be used for a variety of things from a shopping bag to an overnight bag to a book bag. I've used mine for all three!
