The ultimate everything holder!
When I purchased my Cosmetic Trio in Dogwood, the products immediately exceeded my expectations. I can use these pouches for everything! I also love the fact that the inside is lined, so I do not have to panic when something spills inside one and the interior gets wet. Aside from these containing my makeup and other various toiletries, I can fit all of my other necessary belongings. For example, I can fit my gift cards and money in the miniature one to replace a coin purse, or if I'm attending a party I can fit it in my purse to hold my lipstick. The medium one I can use for gym class to hold my small cream and mini comb, and it is such a cute carrier for other items alike. The big one has too many uses to state, but I mainly use it for stashing my soap, face towel, toothbrush toothpaste and comb when I attend a sleepover. Sometimes it also holds my iPhone 4, its charger, my Apple earbuds, and still has so much room to spare. I wouldn't waste a second contemplating about purchasing this if you plan to use these pouches like I do. Then again, your specific needs and items may be different from mine, but if you are thinking of buying these and have similar tastes and needs like I have described, I recommend buying it right away. Also, the dogwood pattern is very elegant and I am always receiving compliments on these adorable pouches! I cannot thank Vera Bradley enough for the Cosmetic Trio and will always love it.

Perfect travel jewelry cases
I have five of these sets now, and I just love them. I use them to pack my jewelry for trips. Generally, I only need one set, in a color to match my carryon for the plane (keep the valuables with me), but sometimes I will use all the small ones if that sorts the jewlery better. The large one also fits a nook or ereader perfectly. What I most love is the nice satin lining. I do not like to store jewelry in plastc. The VB jewelry rolls/pouches all use see through clear plastic, and I can't take the idea of storing good pieces in that relatively hard plastic. Especially pearls that need to breathe. Plus plastic gets sweaty. If the items meant for jewelry used this nice soft satin, then maybe I would buy them. But for now, these cosmetic trios are the perfect solution.

I absolutely love these bags. I have three sets and am ordering two more! I use one big bag for stuff I always seem to need like chap stick, a pen, perfume stuff like that. It's easy to move the bag from one bigger purse to another or toss in my over night bag. The medium bags are pencil cases for me. One holds pens ans pencils. The other one holds sticky notes, highlighters, lead, white out. Things I don't always have to have but it's nice to keep them together and accessible. And the small bags work great for jewelry in my gym bag and makeup bag. And the third one is my wallet/ change purse. I don't carry an actual wallet I just put my cards, change, and cash in the small bag!
These bags are very handy and of course very very well made.
