Love this bag!
I was carrying the Alice bag in Totally Turq (which is also awesome), but fell in love with the new Island Blooms print. I went into my local Vera dealer, and the Laura bag caught my eye. It has all the room of a larger bag, but is not bulky. All the pockets on the inside are great, and the Island Blooms print is so pretty for spring. In the few weeks I have been carrying it, I have gotten many compliments on it.

My FAVORITE Vera Bag ~ I have SEVEN patterns!
I floundered around trying several styles before this dream bag was released a couple of years ago and I found my perfect match. Criteria includes passing the elbow test, two outside pockets for keys & phone, interior slip pockets for misc. items, zippered pocket for all the loose small items, large enough to hold my daily items with room for the occasional extra item like a travel mug or Rx's picked up at the store but not too big, and it has to sit/stand up by itself without falling over. This Tote/Handbag does all of that with ease. It just FITS me and my casual lifestyle so well - it's effortless to use & carry... I don't have to think about where something is because I just KNOW where it is... it's always in the same place... I can reach in & grab it... I should probably thank the powers that be at Vera Bradley instead of berating them for discontinuing my beloved Laura because it will save me a TON of money between the Bag itself as well as all the lovely accessories I have to have in each pattern to fill the bag. Although... If they reintroduce it in the future I hope they extend the interior pockets down to the bottom of the bag because my only quirk about Laura is that it tends to slouch a bit around the lovely bottom border because of the weight of the items in the pockets. I'll be adding a couple more patterns while I can get them. ENJOY.

please don't discontinue Laura!!!
Every time I go to a retailer and buy the laura the clerk tells me it will be discontinued!!! Please don't!!! I have all my favorite patterned in the laura style! I love the cinched sides, pocket in the front! Lots and lots of room! Its a beautiful style! Never outdated!! And I think ALOT of customers would agree with me!! I really hope you don't get rid of it. :'(

I have five Laura bags. My obsession began when I bought it in Lilli Belle. It's more feminine than my other more than 50 Vera bags, but there's just something about the cinched top and the many pockets inside and the two outside -- it's form meets function in a serious way. On the surface, it's just a very pretty style. But it is a workhorse. I have it in English Rose, Summer Cottage, Island Blooms, Lilli Belle and Floral Nightingale. Love the bag. Always get compliments on it.

Can't Live Without It
As a veteran Vera Bradley carrier, this style is my absolute favorite. I believe the key to a great purse is strategically placed pockets, and this bag is the only one I have ever carried that fully meets my expectations. Having 4 slip pockets and one zipper pocket on the inside, I have room for a 12 oz water bottle, my keys, an assortment of lip sticks, and cell phone all to have their very own pocket. The zipper pocket is also great to stow away items you don't need multiple times a day. Pair that with the perfect amount of space for sunglasses, wallet, planner and other random items, plus the front slip-zip pocket combo for all of your trinket storing needs, and you have yourself an organization dream. I honestly don't know if I will continue to buy Vera purses if this style is discontinued. My standards are just too high after using this purse. I am BEGGING you all not to discontinue it!!!

My Mom's Day Out Bag
I Love this bag for Outings with older children that don't require lots of items. Just the right size to not be too bulky. Can carry lot items and has lots of pockets. Added perk is the hard base. It stands up when put down and won't flop over.

Perfect size for Mom of toddler
Love this bag style! Perfect size for my stuff, plus room for a pull-up and wipes, and even room for my iPad mini! I usually have a water bottle in there, too, and snacks for the kids, and the outside pocket is perfect for my iPhone. But it is not huge like my diaper bag or tote, I just love it. The strap is a great length for over the shoulder, but i can still carry it and it doesn't hit the ground. I was worried it didn't have a zip top, but the magnetic snap and the fact that the shape makes for a deeper bag, I feel very secure and stuff does not fall out when it gets knocked on the floor in the car. So sad if they discontinue this one, I would love it with the new leather straps in some new prints.

Best bag ever
I love the style of this bag! It is large enough to carry my iPad, wallet and all other essentials. The pockets inside and out are perfect for keeping everything organized and easily accessible. Please bring this bag back, and make it available in solid black and other solids as well. This style is perfect for business and solid colors would have a more professional look.
