First Vera Bradley
Let me start off with the fact that I HATE carrying a purse. Most purses get so heavy and cluttered and the flimsiness of other purses doesn't help. I bought the zip i.d in Happy Snails and it was so convenient so the very next day I went and bought the Mandy in Happy Snails. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. The thick, lush quality of the material is surprisingly light weight! The purse has SIX pockets on the inside and one on the outside. The pockets make for amazing organization, not counting whats in the pockets, I have my zip i.d., my checkbook and an umbrella. THAT'S IT!!!! I can find everything in less than 3 seconds and the outside pocket is perfect to slip my phone in and out of weather I'm in the car or the store or whatever. Perfect purse and I'm hooked!!!

I purchased this bag in "Happy Snails" for my mother who is 84 along with a matching wallet. She can no longer carry heavy leather bags so I thought this would be a fashionable alternative. She loves it! It is light and there are enough pockets that she has a place for everything and every thing is in it's place. I am glad there is a zipper closure for added security and the size is just right. She can carry the bag or she can put it up on her shoulder. All in all this is the perfect bag for a senior who still wants to be in the "fashionable crowd". We are now going back for a 2nd bag in one of the newer colors. We think the quality of Vera bags is absolutely exceptional!

Just bought my second Mandy!
I, too, absolutely LOVE this bag. I bought my first one in Tea Garden for spring/summer and it was so perfect for me that I had to have another (Indigo Pop) for the fall. I'm a nut for organization so the SIX large interior pockets are perfect. I have filled each one with electronic gadgets and other necessities of my life, with plenty of room in the open compartment for a matching turn-lock wallet (love that, too!), a tablet and/or e-reader and a large water bottle. The outer pocket is great for a smart phone. The recessed zipper keeps things secure. The quality and workmanship is superb.
I highly recommend this bag for anyone loving to be organized in a beautiful way.
