I am super happy with this bag. It's bigger than I expected but not overwhelming. The best thing about it is the pockets. There are 3 slip pockets that are the size of the Vera coin purse (I use the coin purses for small items to stay organized# on one side. The other side has a zipper pocket which is a very nice size #holds my small notebook, travel pack of tissues, mini brush, & hand sanitizer). I love that even when full the pockets don't intrude on the space inside the bag. Main inside is very roomy which I love since I mainly use it as my purse but do toss in a few extra little things for my 3 & 6 yr old when we're out running errends and it's pretty stuffable. The outside pockets are large and since there's 2 I don't have to choose between making my phone or keys easily accessable. Love that it zips closed, this is a huge plus for me. There are only a couple little things I would change. 1- add a crossbody option because it's always nice to be able to go hands free and still have it secured to your body 2- the recessed zipper is super recessed and isn't really expandable as the plackets are sewn down into to the bag. Other than that it's really a great bag and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Very cute purse!
I had almost purchased this as a tote bag, but am glad that I didn't because it isn't a tote bag at all. It's a purse that is a tote style. I like this as a purse because it has an inside zippered compartments for unmentionables unlike some of my other vera purses (like the Mandy). It also has three inside pockets perfect for holding a phone, lip glosses, gum, etc. The purse itself has plenty of room inside to hold a lot. I like the fact that it zippers closed, too. Finally, on both sides on the outside there are very large and deep pockets. I keep my keys in there when I'm out because they won't fall out and they are easy to find when leaving. The purse also has a stylish shape to it.

Perfect In Every Way!
This purse/tote is so attractive in person. The straps are very comfortable and feel good on my shoulder. There is so much room in this bag! It has a nice wide bottom, so when the bag gets full, it doesn't pull on the straps and sag. The two outside pockets are slightly tufted, so they expand when full. I really like the totes and purses that have some silver hardware accents. I think it just adds to the quality and style of the purse. I carry a kiss n snap wallet, tech case, coin bag, slim case for my glasses, keys, cell phone, plastic pill case and my nook HD in a case and I have room to spare. The Quick Draw purse used to be my favorite due to the silver hardware and the wide bottom but this one is so much more comfortable to carry.
