East West Tote
The magnetic closure is not strong enough to keep the bag closed with just my wallet and make-up bag inside. I am going to have to buy snaps or something because I have ended up with make-up and pens all over the car when the bag falls off the seat.

Great space, poor closure!
If you want to use this for books and bigger items, it is great!! If you have little things, I wouldn't use this tote. The magnetic closure doesn't hold together so things can fall out constantly or people can look into your tote and see everything you have.

A very versatile bag!
I LOVE this bag and I am so disappointed they discontinued it. Stuff doesn't get lost in the bottom of the bag like in the regular tote. Another cool thing is you can turn it inside out if you love the inside pattern of the bag. I got so many compliments when I did that.

Not enough pockets.
I really like the size of this bag. I carry a lot of stuff with me and it all fits nicely in here. However, it only has three pockets on the inside and none on the outside. I quickly run out of places to put my small things. And I can only drop my keys in the main section, so they're hard to find.

I got this bag, and i thought it would be a great school bag for my daughter. Some people said it does not fit too many things and some people said it was great. When I went to put my daughter's things in the bag, It fit everything she needed. It fit a 2 inch binder, 2 folders, a pencil case, a wallet and a calculator. HOWEVER, it was a little tight, and she was always trying to be careful. This bag is great.. IF you only have a few books or for something else, but if you are the type of person that likes to have 7 binders and 5 folders etc. this bag is not for you. I ended up using it as a diaper bag because it fit plenty of that stuff if i am just going to a friends or visiting my mother. Recently, i went back online and got the "grand tote" in "mocha rouge" that bag is nice and big and perfect for school, work, or the beach! hope this helped .

Awesome bag for my electronics
I bought this bag to carry my 13 in MacBook and iPad. I have the laptop in the 15 in sleeve and it fits well. I don't think this bag will last very long as an everyday bag with the weight of the laptop but I don't plan on carrying it daily. I also wished it had a zipper instead of a magnet but I can live with it. It's very cute bag and fits well under the arm. Not huge and definitely not too small.

Perfect Tote for Everyday!
Love this tote! Big pockets hold my everyday essentials. Love that it opens wide so I can see what is inside my purse. Love that I can toss things in and it doesn't feel stuffed. Only thing I would want is a pocket on the outside for my cell phone or keys.

Awesome for school & dance!
This tote is espeically perfect for a dance bag! I like to use it for school becuase it has alot of space to use to put in binders, notebooks, folders, textbooks and extra assesories such as water bottles, pencilcases and makeup (girls) :) This can be used for pretty much anything. For dance it works great if your on a competition team, AKA a company member team. You can put your dance shoes, water, socks, etc. in it! Complete perfection for me!

I wanted a bag that would fit my busy college lifestyle, and this is perfect! I bring it to class, shopping, and even works great as an over night bag. I can fit my laptop, notebook, etc. very comfortably. It is just the right size, doesn't look like I'm dragging a huge bag around, but at the same time it fits everything I need! I would definitely recommend this bag for a busy lifestyle!

Great for every day
This was my first Vera Bradley bag, and I love it! It holds everything I need for work each day. That includes a large 3 ring notebook, calendar, kindle, iPad, pencil pouch, VB wallet, VB coin purse, and a water bottle! Plus there's numerous other things I slide into the inside pockets. I don't use the magnetic closure, but that's fine with me. It is the perfect size for me and fits snugly and comfortably on my shoulder!
