Lovely, Functional Bag!
This is my second Vera Bradley Bag. I got this purse in Plum Petals.I love the color, I have a lot of purple and green things, so it matches and the color will be great for spring. Some people say that Vera Bradley doesn't match anything but it's just so pretty and you can make it work. This bag is so beautiful and I was so excited when I opened the package! It was absolutely lovely and so soft and nice. It has a hard base too, which I love because I think this will help it keep its shape. The base removes too, REMOVE the base before you wash it.
This bag might look pretty small but it really holds a lot more than you think that it would. My first Vera Bradley purse was the Lizzy in Boysenberry, which I love for when I need my hands free, but there honestly wasn't that much space inside. It was good for when I needed to pack light though. In Lizzy I could fit
-money, library card etc.
The 100 handbag kind of looks small, but believe me, inside it's not. It holds so much!
-a knit hat
-lipstick, lipgloss, chapstick
The six slip pockets are great for organizing smaller items, like lipstick. It is a bonus that they are quilted! This makes the bag feel extra luxurious! The shoulder straps are quilted too, and they are very comfortable and nice. I don't actually keep anything in the outside pocket because it doesn't have any type of closure on it, it's just an open slip pocket. But it's very cute!
This is a great bag! I heart Vera Bradley! I will definitely buy more vera bradley bags :)

Casual bag needs slight improvement
I ordered this bag in Lola, and I have to say the pattern is gorgeous. Everything everybody else raves on is true and I am not going to repeat here. However, if there is anything to improve on, it will be to place the strap handle slightly wider apart so the front pocket in between the handle becomes a little wider. Not just a slightly wider pocket is more useful, the bag will look aesthetically more proportional to the 12" long straps. The strap handle placement is only 3 1/2" apart, which is how wide the outside pocket is. I think most people would have arms wider than 3 1/2". You got the picture.

100 Bag Bigger than it looks!
I bought this bag because it had the Heather print for 50% off. And I don't regret it! I usually carry something bigger (Eloise, Sweetheart etc), so I was worried this would not be big enough. But it is def bigger than it looks and all the inside pockets keep everything organized. Plus the pocket on the outside perfect fits my phone (an HTC EVO in an otterbox). It sticks out, but thats what I want so I can grab it. I also love the two zippers. Love it!

Give this one a try!
I have never been one who likes to carry a large purse. Usually I just carry a wristlet that holds my credit cards, money & phone. I decided about a month ago to give this handbag a try in Mocha Rouge, and I really do love it. The quilting of all the interior pockets, as well as the straps, is fantastic. This bag may be considered small but indeed holds more than I expected. I also like it's unique shape when there are so many hobo & cross body styles lately. In fact, I love it so much I just ordered another in Go Wild.

Better then Expected!
I ordered two of these bags during the 50% off sale. So, I was able to get two for the price of one. Needless to say, I love them. This is my new favorite bag. It's small, compact and has tons of room to fit everything I need and more. I definitely think I will need to come back and order a third color.

Great for carrying things to work or shopping
Great pockets on the inside that make it easy to organize. Loved so much went back and bought more colors. Great for a person that doesn't like a huge purse and everyday essential fit such as small or regular wallet, cell phone, makeup and keys.

This is my second 100 handbag. I got it in Jazzy Blooms. I love how it's compact but holds a lot of items. And it's easy to see inside.

Cute Bag, but Smaller than I Expected
This is a cute little bag, but it looks so much larger in the picture. I even looked at a YouTube video that showed a person holding the bag and it looked large there as well! I am used to carrying large bags around (I have the Glenna and I LOVE that bag), so it will be a nice change for me to have a smaller bag. It looks a little out of proportion to my body - I'm not a small person (5'7", size 12-14). I think this bag would look good on someone who is more petite, but I plan on keeping the bag because I hate dealing with returns. You can fit a decent amount of things in there. I usually carry a book with me, but that won't happen with this bag unless its a small paperback. If you have a large wallet, it will take up half the bag. As long as you don't plan on packing a lot of things, you should be just fine. I also think an older person would do well with a bag like this, so if you're looking for a gift for Grandma, this bag in one of the more subdued prints would be cute! One more thing - there's lots of pockets inside! Yay!

i really love this!!! i got it in mocha ruge. Only issue is its a little small for me but it does hold alot. I only think its small because i ordered the large cosmetic with it and i can hardly fit it in with my wallet. But its cute functional and fun :)
