Vera saved my commute
I started a new job at the beginning of the year and had to start going downtown. This meant parking in a garage and walking to my office. When I started, I was given a backpack bag by my employer to carry all my work related items. At first this seemed great as I like backpacks and they are easier on your back. But I learned that with the in and out of elevators, going through a revolving door to my office, and the security turnstiles that the backpack was more trouble than it was worth. I needed a bag large enough to carry all my essentials, but one that was no so big it would be a challenge for all the above mentioned commute pains. I found the VERA in my local store and LOVED the Flower Shower pattern. This bag can comfortably hold my padfolio, iPad, laptop, and kindle (for lunch reading) in the main compartment. In the various slips I have my laptop cords, my kindle and iPad cords, pens, pencils, highlighters, Tide to-go stick, lotion and antibacterial gel with room to spare. In the front slip I have my badge and parking garage pass. I have yet to use the outer zip because I still have room on the inside. I even have enough room for the days I play sand volleyball after work to fit my change of clothes inside the bag. This thing is amazing. It is so great that I have even started just grabbing my small zip around wallet and phone out of my purse and adding it to the bag so I don't take my purse with me. Excellent bag for downtown commuting.

A "Vera-Good" school bag!
I have always wanted this bag. I have heard so many nice things about the Vera, so I really wanted to get it. So when I got it for Christmas in the pattern Buttercup, I was exteremley thrilled! It fits tons of stuff, so it makes a great school bag. The zip-pocket in the back is a great touch, you could put money (or whatever you want) in it, and it won't even fall out! I also like the front pocket, it's big enough to fit my wristlet in it!!!! The two big inside pockets are big enough for books! My two 'Let's Do Lunches' can even fit in here, even if they're not completley empty! And, the straps are nice and plush, so even if I put quite a lot in here, my shoulders don't hurt. I totally reccomend this bag to anyone who needs a bigger school bag, or for any other reason! This is a "Vera-Good" bag!

Great overall tote!
You definitely get what you pay for when it comes to this tote. It's large, durable, and has tons of pockets! I am currently using this for nursing school and I love that the big center holds my books, folder file, and notebooks, while the sides conveniently hold my pens, stethoscope, pen light, blood ox meter, tissues, water bottle, wallet, phone, etc. (It literally holds THAT much!) In a nutshell, it has been my best purchase from Vera Bradley thus far! No complaints whatsoever!
