Mom's Day Out
New Favorite...with a little issue
I am a longtime Vera lover! I recently made the switch from zip top totes like Villager and Three-O to Mom's Day Out and I am hooked! For those who have never used a cross body tote, the experience is liberating! Yes I am a busy mom, but this bag is great for any day out. I use it as my everyday purse, and I fit everything I kept in my Villager, with the ease and comfort of hands free. One little issue, I hope that Vera hears me on this...the stitching that secures the double outer pocket and interior pockets is unraveling...after just about 2 weeks of gentle use. I'm afraid this is a defect of the bag because I tryed one on in the store and noticed the same thing was happening (to a brand new bag). Anyway I hope Vera keeps the Mom's Day Out but improves upon this imperfection. I love this bag so much I intend to get one every season!

Great Size and Beautiful!
I am the mom of an almost 4 year old - so I don't need to carry a diaper bag anymore, but my purse always seems to need to hold more than it's designed for. This is a perfect "in between" bag for moms with older toddlers! I love that I can wear it as a cross-body bag and keep my hands free. The fact that it is lined makes me feel more comfortable with carrying snacks and juice cups. The front pockets are a very nice size as well as the back zippered pocket. I do wish there were more interior pockets. Having a slightly larger and deeper purse is awesome, but only if you can keep the contents conveniently organized. I don't like piling and having to "dig" to the bottom to find things. I prefer being able to reach in and know exactly which pocket to look in for a particular item. As it is, I feel like it's more of a "feel-your-way-till-you-find-what-you-can't-see" situation. Either way, I love the bag. The pattern is my new favorite. Since my mother was diagnosed in 2004 with breast cancer, I've always bought the support patterns from VB. Hope Garden was my all time favorite, but I think Ribbons is going to be taking over very soon.

I am absolutely in love with this bag. Granted I am not a mommy, but it is perfect. I love pockets, and this purse has plenty! The slip pockets inside are larger and plenty deep, the zipper pocket on the back is great, and as well as the pockets on the front! I put everything in here, and it could hold more. I have my wallet, keys, makeup bag . . . I even can carry my flashlight, mini med kit, whistle. And the fact that it is cross-body makes it even better! I bought it in Canyon, and the colors are super cute. My friend likes it because she see owls in the pattern. ;) All in all, this is my number 1 go to bag. Thanks a bunch!!
