Absolutely the best bag ever!
I just received my first Eloise bag yesterday and am totally in LOVE with it! It is a super design, sleek, yet extremely roomy. Pockets? OMG! Are there pockets! I can't find enough things to put in all the pockets. There is ample room in the middle section for your wallet, cosmetic bag, sunglasses case, etc, And then the side sections hold so much and each have MORE pockets! The strap drop is a bit too short to just one-handedly swing onto your shoulder but that isn't really an issue. The handles sit nicely on the shoulder and are comfortable to carry. I can't say enough positive about this bag. I hope this style NEVER gets discontinued because I never want to carry any other bag!

Loved it but.....
I loved this bag, I bought it for my wedding on April 6th and by April 21 the clasp broke. I was so disappointed I absolutely loved the look and got so many compliments. It was my favorite of many Vera bags I own. I am going to try and have the clasp welded back on but until then I had to put it away.

Even better than picture!
I ordered the Eloise online and when I received it, I liked it even more than in the picture. I have it in Very Berry Paisley. It looks very elegant in great part due to the kisslock closure. There are a lot of pockets to keep me organized. I've gotten many compliments on my purse and my daughter wants one. I plan on ordering another one for myself in a different color. I love purses and own several, but the Eloise is definitely my favorite.

For those who conceal and carry
I got my very first Vera bag today , the Eloise. I chose it because I have a permit to carry and this purse is perfect for that. The front pockets with the magnetic closure is great for it . I can fit everything I need in it with plenty of room to spare. I was a fossil purse lover before but now I am hooked and have a new favorite , I ordered the Emma and crossbody clutch and 2 zip wallets today !!! I may need a second job !

The Eloise style is my favorite bag.I love this bag so much that I own two of them. They are so unusual and easy to use and fun to have. I get compliments everytime I go out. One of my bags is in the "Happy Snails" pattern. It constantly attracts attention and everyone asks me about it and loves the pattern. Love the convenience of this bag,great usability and they hold up great. Am a true Vera Bradley fan from now on!

The perfect purse
I am so pleased with Eloise I would even call it the perfect purse. I bought it in plum crazy which is a perfect pattern for those who love purple. I initially bought the Laura and found it to be too big and too much like a tote. Then I ordered Eloise and so glad I did! I am a petite person and tote-like purses look silly on me. Eloise has 4 pockets and a zipper compartment inside and the outer two sides have two pockets each! I was pleasantly surprised! The outer sides are lofty enough for my iPad (without a cover) to slip in it for a quick carry and go. Eloise is perfect!

Almost perfect... if only it had a longer strap
This purse is the perfect size and easy kiss-lock and magnetic closures. Lots of good pockets. IF ONLY the strap drop were 1-2 inches more! it's really hard to wear this purse with a winter or even a lightweight coat. I keep it for summer

This is a beautiful bag even better than in the pictures. I would choose this over Alice anytime. Lots of space inside, inner pocckets and zipper and outer pockets with magnets for documents, cards, keys, phones ,etc. The only thing to be concerned is the metal clasp goes all the way accross so keep it organized and also this one is not machine washable :(

Camilla is my new love!
Perfect bag for someone who likes to carry a lot of things. I love the four pockets on the inside. Instead of just throwing my cellphone in and hoping I find it before it stops ringing, it fits perfectly in 1 of the four pockets, along with my iPod & perfume. iPad fits nicely in one of the outside pockets, unable to tell its in there so no worries of someone trying to steal it! A definite buy!!! Thanks vera! Although some of the colors I'm not too keen on & when years ago, I had a very hard time deciding what i wanted, that's not a problem now! We need better options!

Tight fit under the arm
I just received this bag in Island Blooms, and it is a very pretty bag. The colors are very vibrant, and the mouth of the purse opens widely (much wider than the Alice) so one can easily see everything in the purse. The two side pockets are extremely deep and extend the entire length of the purse, and are great for holding my cell phone and mini-IPAD with its cover on one side and keys, lip gloss, tissues, and a book with a cover on the other side. They both stay closed with the magnetic clasp, even with all that stuff in the pockets and my turn lock wallet and cosmetic bag in the main portion of the purse. It goes without saying that there is a lot of room inside the purse itself, with the usual organizer pockets (4 on one side and a zippered pocket on the other). And it doesn't look bulky at all. However, the straps are not long enough to carry this purse comfortably under my arm when wearing a sweater so I can't imagine using this purse in a climate where one has to use a coat. I will try to use it again in a few weeks when the weather is warmer.
