Two Way Tote
Great for on the go!
My fiancé plays ball and he changes alot throughout the day while he's playing and when he's got down time. This tote held all of my regular items (wallet, tanning lotion, keys, regular lotion, pens, pencils, etc.) plus his extra outfit of clothes, sunflower seeds, baseball glove, batting gloves, and more. I could not be happier with my tote. I love that it's crossbody and that it also has handles to grab and go. By far my favorite VB product, and trust me, I have a ton of VB! Keep up the good work.

I received this bag last weekend absolutely fell in love. I purchased the plum crazy color and have to say I'm crazy in love with this color. The combination is amazingly beautiful. Now the bag. . . I love how it feels on my arm great and comfortable to carry, I keep the long strap with me all the time because I like how I can easily convert the bag to a shoulder tote or cross body.
One fix. . . A pocket on the outside.

My go-to bag this summer
I've been carrying my two-way tote in Tutti Frutti for about a week, and I'm in love!
1. It's big! It holds way more than the hipster, with the same hands-free ease. I can fit a big wallet, sunglasses, several pouches (the cosmetic trio is perfect in purses), a cardigan, and more.
2. The magnetic snap closure is convenient and sleeker than a zipper.
3. The bag's structure is stiff so it can stand up on its own, unlike the hipster.
4. The top handles are easy to grab and add major cuteness.
5. The long strap is very adjustable and looks sleek across my body.
What could be better:
1. It's not quite as comfortable as the hipster, both because it holds a lot more and because the strap is skinnier. But that's just how it is if you want to carry more stuff and look good doing it. I'd say it's a 4.5 out of 5 for comfort - still pretty easy to carry all day.
Overall? A fantastic, versatile bag that will be my constant companion this summer, especially on my road trip.

Best Tote I Could Find!
I had been debating about this tote considering I had not seen it in person. Fortunately it was given to be as a birthday gift in jazzy blooms and i LOVE it! Some people complained that the tote looks big but gets too bulky if you put a lot of stuff in it due to its thin frame for cross body use. That is not the case at all. The tote is the perfect size! Inside i can fit my strap wallet, small cosmetic bag, a book, and a planner with the magnetic closure closing perfectly. The inside pockets are fabulous! I can put my phone, keys, chapsticks, receipts, and plenty of other little things without having to fumble around looking for them since the bag is so organized! I could not be happier with this bag and the versatility makes it all the more better! I can dress it up, dress it down, use it as a cross body, or my favorite just throw the strap inside and carry it by the adorable handles(: Thanks Vera!!!

Great Tote and Purse
I really love this tote because I can use it as a purse also. The strap is thin enough to fit inside so it is always ready to convert from handheld to shoulder bag. I can carry a little or a lot. I thought I might like an outer pocket or two perhaps on the slanted seam near the top, but that might affect the nice sleekness that is there now. So I guess I can live without outside pockets. It's one of my favorites.

Favorite Style Handbag
This is my all time fav style with double handles and a shoulder strap. Love this bag and love the Marina Paisley! Great summer bag. Only gave it four stars because it really needs an outside pocket or two for phone and keys.

I fell in love!!!
After debating for a few months on trying this style, I finally bit the bullet. I thought the top handles were going to bother me when carrying as a shoulder bag or crossbody bag but they don't. I tend to carry by the handles on my arm alot when running in and out. If you plan on carrying only like that you can remove the strap or simply open the bag and while leaving the strap attached just drop into the bag (if you don't want the strap to be showing while carrying it on your arm). I really fell in love with the versatility of this bag & just ordered my second one.
I agree with other reviewers that an outside pocket for my phone would be great, but I still love it anyway.
Plenty of room and organization inside the bag with room to spare when you need to throw something else in. Very pleased!!!

Good Size and Flexible
I love the size of this purse. It is similar to my favorite, the Laura bag. The size allows me to drop in a bottle of water or umbrella without rearranging my other items. This bag has the rolled handles which I love and accommodates the times I need a cross body. Inside there is a zippered pocket along with 3 pockets, which is the same as my Laura, so it is easy to organize my stuff. I gave it 4 stars because it really needs that outside pocket which so many of VB purses and totes have--the perfect spot for a cell phone. Overall I am happy with the purse and will probably use it all summer.

Awesome College Bag
I've been using this bag for campus (and I ride a bike). The adjustable strap helps out a lot. Their is enough room for my
The pockets inside really help out with knowing where my cell is at all times and the zipper pocket for my make-up is awesome. As long as your not carrying around a laptop and heavy thick, 12x10 textbooks, you WILL WANT THIS BAG.

Great for Light College Load.
I use this bag to carry my VB 3-subject notebook, Student Agenda, iPad mini, and smartphone wallet, as well as, a Paperback textbook occasionally and it works wonderfully and looks stylish. Though it is heavy if overfilled, I feel that this is a non-issue for this purse is perfect for my versatile shopping/schooling needs.
