Love the bag but wish I got the black.
I got this bag when I got my VB coupon for my birthday and because I needed a medium size bag for work. Was in store hesitating between blue and black and eventually picked blue because I have a few black leather bags already. Used it for a few months and in the end I stuffed it too much so I switched back to my KS bag. It's one of my top 10 favorite VB bags (the other ones are little hipster, on the go, frannie, 100 handbag, duffel bag, lunch bunch, betsy, villager, miller... some of which have been discontinued). I love to carry VB bags in summer and on rainy days because I do not like to get sunscreen, sweat, or rain on leather bags, and the Vera collection looks more professional than the patterned ones. After carrying it for a while I wish I had got the black one though because the blue is more bright than classy.

Casual / Dressy/ Fun
Love the Glenna, I'm not easy to please when it comes to a purse, always something I don't like. This purse is perfect wouldn't change a thing. Have the micro blue, going to buy a pattern one for summer. Thanks Vera hitting the Double Like Button!

Love the style
I love the style of this bag! It is just what I've been looking for. The only problem I see is that it is too big for a nice black stylish purse to take to church. I will not purchase it at this time because it is too large for what I want to use it for. I hope you will consider making it in a little smaller size. If you make a "Little Glenna" I'll snatch it up right away!

Great bag... and I have looked a long time!
I am so pleased with the Glenna (in black) and I'm picky about my purse for every day and to work! It's hard to find a bag for work that's not too big, not too small, has outside pockets and enough inside pockets, has a secure closure and looks fashionable and professional, AND doesn't cost $300+! This bag is so near perfect!! I love the Vera B. travel pieces, wallets, cosmetic cases, tote bags, PJ's (!), and cross-body hipster bags but need a purse that's more formal and polished for the office. Did I mention that the outside pockets are deep and big enough for easy access yet stuff can't fall out.. unlike the teeny-tiny outside zipper pockets that you scratch your hand on when putting things in it! And the purse is styled with a good zipper closure. I tend to like cross-body purses BUT the handles on this are long and comfortable enough to put on the shoulder. So cute... it looks like a tote/purse style.. don't discontinue this!! Maybe make it in brown, navy, or other microfiber colors!!

I love my Vera Bradley purse & zip around
I love my Vera Bradley on the go and zip around, as well as my double eye glass case. I bought several years ago in Independence Kansas. Cannot wait to get my new purse. I would like to start my grand daughters off with Vera Bradley soon.

The Glenna is my new favorite VB purse! I love the front and back large pockets. I put my phone in the front and keys in the back. No more digging around to find those two important things! The inside has plenty of room for everything else. I love the solid black!

"Perfect Bag for Travel and Everyday"
I purchased this Classic Black "Glenna" Bag to take to Las Vegas for my daughter's wedding. This bag was worn with every outfit except my dressy wedding attire. I carried all my essentials in this bag including a bottle of water and magazine for the plane going and coming home. I always purchased the Betsy and Mandy styles and now I am a convert to this great "Glenna" style. Please make all your items in "Classic Black" and I will just keep coming back for more. Love the Classic Black quilting, love the lining and the great over the shoulder padded straps. Just plain love this bag!!!!!!

Love at First Sight
Love the black for winter and the pattern with silver hardware is very classy looking. Have already had many compliments on it. This lightweight beauty stands up on it's own and holds my big fat wallet among many, many other items...and still zips-up with plenty of room left over. The lining is beautiful and really adds to the look of this purse. Can't wait to get a matching accordion wallet. The inside zip pocket is huge, the 3 slip pockets also inside are wide and wonderful for organizing, and the 2 outside slip pockets can be filled without the purse looking bulged-out. All pockets run down to the bottom of purse. I can even fit my ipad inside and amazingly still zip it up. Finally a purse where nobody will know how much crapola I'm really carrying...except me. :)
Keep wondering what padded round handles might be like, instead of the straps. Just sayin'...

This is my favorite Vera bag to date! It holds tons of stuff(all my Vera accessories) and still looks great. I can even put my phone, keys and lipgloss in the outside pockets and they don't "pucker". The photo doesn't do it justice! I believe this one's a winner!

Perfect for girls who carry a lot...
I carry lots of things in my bag, and usually buy leather. A Leather bag is heavy by itself and once I loaded it up, it weighed a ton and hurt my shoulder. So, I thought I'd try the Glenna. I ordered it on Thursday, it arrived Saturday, and I immediately transferred all my things from the old bag into it. WOW! What a difference. Not only is it lighter, but everything fit, with room to spare, and the bag does not look bulky. Even loaded, it holds its shape and stands tall and slim. My phone fits in one front slip pocket, my keys in the back one for easy access. Inside, there are three slip pockets, one for my coupons, one for my keychain filled with store discount cards, a third for a little flashlight I carry. A zip pocket for personal things, and lots of room in the center for my stuffed wallet, cosmetic bag, snack bars, etc. I LOVE it. I chose solid black, which i like for winter, but I will be ordering the Glenna in a few prints for the spring and summer. I really like the Baroque pattern, so that will be my next purchase.
