Sweetheart Shoulder Bag
This was my first Vera Bradley purchase, and I must say, I absolutely love it! I was a little hesitant at first because it was a little bigger than what I wanted but it holds everything I need and more. In the interior pockets I hold lip gloss my phone ext. I can fit my brush in there along with a book my Wristlet and other necessities. I also love how it zips up, it is more secure than the ones that snap shut with a magnet and the shape of purse is absolutely adorable. I recommend it to all ages.

My Favorite of All Time
I have many Vera Bradley purses, but this is my favorite of all time...the perfect size and shape. I am soooooo displeased that it came in only a few colors and for a limited time. I like it so much, in fact, that I will not buy another Vera Bradly product until this style is brought back in a large variety of prints/colors. If you think I'm kidding, I'm not!

LOVE THIS BAG
this is my all-time favorite bag since the "toastie" was retired. Please make more patterns. I cannot find another style that I like as well.

One of my favorite bags!
I bought this at a Vera outlet in Chicago, in the Ellie Blue pattern. I just love it. It seems to just be the perfect size. I have it filled with various Vera smaller bags, a Vera turn-lock wallet, and my Vera hard-shell sunglass case. It's just great.
The only caveat is that sometimes the handles slip. They are stiffer than the handles on tote bags.
That is the only thing I am not happy with.
Looking for another one, though!
Oh, and I would gladly buy another bag in the Ellie Blue pattern, too!

I love this bag. I have it in Camilla and it is beautiful. This is a great size if you like a little bit bigger purse, but not tote size. I like the rolled straps. They stay on your shoulders really well. The front pocket is really pretty large. I can get my iphone and my keys easily in it. Inside is 2 large slip pockets on one side and a zip pocket on the other. Plenty of room for whatever you carry. The outside is very pretty with the little pleats under the slip pocket. I know this was a limited purse, but I would love it if Vera made this in more colors. Definitely worth getting while they are on clearance, if you like a larger daily purse.

PERFECT ! WHAT A SWEETHEART !
Excellent! I have over 60 VB bags and I must say this is definitely, by far, one of my top favorites. not only is this a beautiful, classy purse, It's a SWEETHEART of a bag!!! It has perfect style---it's perfectly roomy without looking like you are carrying a huge purse---great size. In functionality, it has very easy access to everything, and comfortability as a shoulder and handbag make it a superior purse. If I could change anything at all about this purse , it would only be one thing - to make the filling in the rounded straps a little less firm.
It would be awesome to make this a VB STAPLE style in all available patterns!!!
Please, PLEASE, PLEASE VERA BRADLEY, offer more patterns in this SWEETHEART!

Love this bag!!!
I received the Sweetheart Shoulder Bag as a Mother's Day present, and I absolutely love it!! It's the perfect size to carry all of my stuff plus all of those toddler necessities without having to carry a diaper bag anymore! I love the exterior pocket for my cell phone and love the top zipper to keep everything inside secure. I only wish it was available in more that just the Spring colors...

Recently I went to visit my sister and her family along with my other sister. They all (even my great nieces) have Vera bags for everything from everyday to computer to bag for dolls. I scoffed at their addiction and how they oohed and aahed over them every time we went shopping. Well to make a long story short my sister said she was tired of me being a "Vera Virgin" and she bought me this bag in the Ellie Blue pattern. They drilled me into knowing the name of not only the bag but the pattern as well.
I have to admit. I love my bag. It is just the right size, it stays on my shoulder if I want it. My I-Pad fits perfectly inside on days I want to take it with me. I have gotten so many compliments about it. I "may" even buy myself a Vera one day soon. :)

Fashion + Function = Perfection
I found this bag online when I had a discount promotional code that I was hoping to use and it caught my eye immediately. Before this, I had the Large Duffel, Laura Tote & Wristlet all in Lime's Up but was really admiring the Island Blooms. I love my Laura but I was looking for something slightly smaller AND a little more dressed up (the Laura is perfect for casual). When I found this silhouette, I knew it was the right one. The best part, that you don't even see in the online pictures, is the zipped top. The sweetheart shape is beautiful but then it has a secure zipped top to keep everything in. Also, the outside slip pocket is more generous than the Laura so I can fit my iPhone AND keys in at the same time, perfect for easy access. On the inside, there's still the secure zip pocket and then two more slip pockets. There are less pockets than the Laura but the entire bag is smaller so I expected that. It's just the right size for being on the go. I can put everything in that I need but nothing that I don't that would bulk it up and make it heavy. If I'm running around town all day long, this is the one I bring with, which is perfect because it's also the bag you take out to dinner with you, since it's not just a casual tote. (And, I love my Laura but this serves a totally different purpose). I really wish they made this in more patterns because it really is beautiful and - up to you whether this is a good or bad thing - doesn't necessarily look like a Vera at first glance even though it has the same great cotton construction and amazing, bright patterns (I want more Island Blooms after getting this one)! I'm now on the Vera train, with my Lime's Up set, this in Island Blooms and I recently ordered three different pieces (tote, hobo & wallet) in the older pattern "Barcelona" which I can't wait to get in the mail.
