Too large for a diaper bag for me
After reading reviews from people suggesting this bag as a diaper bag, I went for it! Personally for me it's a little too large for a diaper bag and I'm a little bummed about this. I do really like the bag and will use it for work instead because it fits my laptop, folders, wallet and lunch. I really like that it zips so I don't have to worry about it tipping over and stuff falling out.

Great diaper bag for a busy mom!!!
This bag is perfect for me! I use it as my diaper bag and i have so much more space than the actual diaper bag from vera! Great for organizing the baby's things and my stuff as well! I got this bag in the color Ribbons and let me tell you that the picture doesn't do the color justice!!! The color is beyond beautiful!!! Didn't know that the bag was a breast cancer bag!!! All i can say is wow I love it!!! Must order one!!!

favorite VB bag
I love this bag. I use it as a purse. The 6 pockets inside are wonderful. Please do not discontinue the Miller bag. It's perfect. I really want it in Clementine, but it isn't available. It looks like its being d/c'd. I'm crushed.

A crying moment!
I got this Christmas and I cried when I opened the box. I got this and the matching wallet. It so much prettier then I thought and now I want all the vera bags in this pattern and I hope they keep it forever.

Great weekend bag
I love this bag! It's not too big, but it fits a lot. I've used it for several overnight/weekend trips, and it's the perfect size. I love all the interior pockets, all my stuff stays organized. I love that this bag has the overnight-friendly size of a tote, but a zipper on top for more security when traveling. I've seen people use this bag as a carry-on, and I think it would work great for that too.

My Prized Commuting Possession
The Miller Bag is my go-to tote for work. I live in Minnesota where at least four months of the year you don’t leave your house without the proper number of layers on. At the height of winter, when I’m decked out in my thickest coat with hat, scarf, snow boots and mittens, it can be cumbersome to carry extra bags or a purse around. With the extra bulk, purse straps don’t fit the same and it is difficult to be aware of dropping things.
Enter the Miller Bag. It’s perfect:
1. The size is quite large – I can fit my VB Lunch Date, coffee travel mug, a purse (usually a VB Frannie), my shoes when I change from my snow boots and often a three-ring binder and a few small manuals for work. These things all fit with plenty of room left over. Should I need to carry more or something heavy, the straps go underneath the bag a continuous loop. So the weight is supported by them and they will never rip away from the bag itself.
2. It zips shut – I can’t emphasize enough how great this is. I know that no matter how dramatically I throw this over my shoulder, nothing is going to fall out.
3. The shoulder straps are roomy and stay in place – even with a bulky winter coat, the Miller Bag is a dream to tote around.
Add the SIX inside and one outside pocket and it doesn’t get any better. If I could made one modification it would be to add a key ring hook in the outside pocket like the Vera tote has, but even without it, I slip my keys and my work badge in there and have had no problems with them potentially falling out. I have this in a pattern that looks great with the two winter coats I wear the most and then match a Frannie to whatever outfit I’m wearing that day. Of all my Veras, this is the one that has gotten the most compliments.

i love the miller bag! i use it as my daily diaper bag for one baby, when i first received my miller in the mail i thought it was huge but when i put everything inside i realized it was the perfect size!!! i love the fact that i can stuff all of the pockets and still have very big space in the middle compartment where as with my other diaper bags i would stuff all of my interior pockets and have NO space in the middle compartment. i love it it is a very good size for a diaper bag, everything fits perfectly inside. it most definatley does not look huge on me and i am 5'3. i recommend every mom to get the miller as a diaper bag! also Very Berry Paisley looks way more beautiful in person than in the pictures.

Great for travel
The Miller bag is exactly what I wanted for when I travel. It's smaller than what I thought, but it's perfect. It fits my flat iron, curling iron, travel accessories, magazines, a small blanket and anything else you may need. I highly recommend this bag.

I purchased the Miller in Summer Cottage this summer to use for the pool/beach. I am a swimmer and head to the pool every day of summer. I needed a bag with compartments for sunscreen, water, goggles, fruit etc. and still be light enough to carry on my shoulder. This bag fit the bill perfectly. Summer Cottage matches all my swimsuit cover-ups, held a towel as well as my kindle (in a vera sleeve). I am careful not to pull across the pool deck, this bag is not canvas, but that's what makes it great and light!

Great Sized Bag
I have a few Vera totes and was looking to get another one that wasn't as big as the Get Carried Away but bigger than the Vera. The Miller bag fits the bill nicely. Its just slightly smaller and narrower than the Get Carried Away. While I love that bag when I travel, it makes a fabulous carry on, I wanted something that I could fit not as much stuff in. I have used the Miller bag a couple times and I can fit my laptop, brochures and flyers, a notepad, my ipad, a jacket and little odds and ends in the pockets and its not as heavy. I love the longer strap, it hits at just the right length when I'm walking. I wanted something with a zipper and while the Vera bag is small and taller it doesn't zip. It is a nice bag (almost more like a large purse) this one is definitely of tote size.
