The perfect VB purse for me
I have never been able to find a VB purse that suited me. They were either too big or too small. I purchase a couple only to get them home, load them up & just not work. Well, my search has ended! I DO LOVE all the compartments. I have membership & business cards in one, my keys go in another & I use the other one for gum & mints. The 2 zipper pockets near the top hold other little items I do not want floating around my purse. The main part holds a wallet, small cosmetic bag & my Galaxy S3 just perfect. It is definitely the right size for a medium purse size gal like me! I just might buy another one.

cute but small.
This is what I have in my Whitney:
Large vera bradley cosmetic bag,
small tube lotion,
Large "post it" notes & pens.
I have to pack it in neatly or else it won't fit. I was going to return the bag but I didn't want to go thru with the hassle. So I decided to keep it and make it work. I do get many compliments. But If you are used to a large bag, this isn't for you. The zip compartments on the side don't reach the bottom of the purse. This would be great for someone who buys medium sized purses.

Great Purse for ME!
I've read some of the negative reviews and find some of them silly. The dimensions are given for the purse as well as the number of pockets, etc. So, That being said, if the size is what you are looking for, and if organizing your purse is important to you, then you'll love this purse as much as I do! The center, main compartment is plenty big for a full size wallet as well as a wristlet (that I like to keep on my loose stuff in, such as bandaids, chapstick, dental floss, etc, that I don't like floating around) and my Vera Bradley pill holder and large box tin of mints. The 3 slip pockets inside are great for my calculator (need that for the % off sales!) tissues, coupons, Phone, if you prefer it inside, etc. The 2 side zippered compartments are awesome, I keep my eReader size tablet in the one (with a case on) and use the other for my checkbook and misc. things I want to find easily. The small outside pocket I use for my phone and sometimes my keys. I love double handles, that way they don't get in the way of the opening. And one of my favorite features is the magnetic end of the zipper that plops it back into place after use! I use my Whitney everyday for work. If I want to carry more, ie taking the grandkids somewhere and I want lots of room for extras, like toys, books, clean clothes, I'll choose a tote. But for my everyday use, I LOVE this purse. Holds a lot and still looks FABULOUS. (I have it in Baroque) Please keep this style Vera!!!
