The frame bag closes with a magnet along the top that I feel is very secure. When I am getting in and out of the bag or hanging it on a door for example it will close itself when I am finished.
The interior of the bag has three un-quilted pockets on one side, and one zippered pocket on the other. I can fit a medium sized android phone in the middle pocket and that is where I keep my phone when I use this bag. It does have two outside pockets on the end of the bag that my phone does fit in, but I don't keep it there because of the shape of the bag, it's takes to long to get in and out.
I find this bag to hold all of my things very well. It opens nice and wide and you can see everything quickly. I have a large wallet, kindle paperwhite, mirror cosmetic, and coin purse in the center area. The other pockets hold my phone, pepper spray for running that I keep in my bag, and tissues etc.
One last great thing, it's light weight, even with all of my things inside. The handles are long enough and it is comfortable to wear and looks nice. I'm 5'8" and for me it is what I think of as the perfect size for a shoulder bag. A very nice addition to my Vera rotation and I am happy with my purchase !

This bag is my first Vera Bradley purchase for myself. (About 13 years ago I was given a small bag for Christmas from my mother which my sisters now use.) The style of the bag is very nice and I love that the inside three pockets are a lot larger then I expected them to be. The smaller pockets on the inside can hold 4-5 pens, a VS lip gloss, lipstick, and the small Lush chap stick container. The purses shape is retained very well when there are lots of items in it. (I'm the type of person to fill my purse to the max.) Very cute, well shaped, and functional. I definitely plan on purchasing more in the future!

Favorite Vera Handbag
This is absolutely my favorite Vera handbag. I love the magnetic closure so much. It's easy to get into the bag when my hands are full with just a quick tug. The bag holds everything I need, and when I open the bag, I can quickly find what I'm looking for because it opens so widely. The slip pockets are the perfect size, and the outside pockets hold my iphone easily. I like the hardware, too, because I hook my keys there and don't have to scramble to find them. My only complaint--and it's a tiny one--is that I wish the strap drop were about an inch longer. Otherwise, it's perfect!
