The perfect VB purse for me
I have never been able to find a VB purse that suited me. They were either too big or too small. I purchase a couple only to get them home, load them up & just not work. Well, my search has ended! I DO LOVE all the compartments. I have membership & business cards in one, my keys go in another & I use the other one for gum & mints. The 2 zipper pockets near the top hold other little items I do not want floating around my purse. The main part holds a wallet, small cosmetic bag & my Galaxy S3 just perfect. It is definitely the right size for a medium purse size gal like me! I just might buy another one.

I got this one as a gift and its a great purse if you like the over the shoulders. It held a few things but there were things I didn't really care for like the small straps. When I tried to put this over my coat during the winter, it didn't seem to be made to go over coat arms. I also didn't like how long it was or how it only had a couple of compartments. If you don't carry around a ton of stuff, then this is a bag for you but once I got my stuff in there, it was hard fitting my lock wallet inside.

This is one of my favorite Vera products. It fits everything I need. I would love to get another one in one of the new colors.

My least favorite VB purse...
This purse is a good size, the color and pattern are great and the quality is good. The reason for only 3 stars is because there are just certain things about it that really bother me. First it has 2 straps and one of the straps is always falling off of my shoulder. Also I leaned over (while the zipper was open) because I dropped something and spilled the contents of my purse into the parking lot of a store...not fun! So I'll go back to my other VB purses that are much better styles for me.

I like to stay organized, so I love the zip compartments. As far as the size of the zip compartments to give an idea of dimension, they are deep enough to zip up a DVD case. I was concerned when I read the comments on the bags size, but much to my surprise the bag is a really good size. The bag is 13 1/2" long. If you are used to carrying really huge bags this one may not be for you. I liked it so much I bought 4 total.

I know many aren't sure about the 2 zipper sections that are not as deep but I like them that way. I can place smaller items in these sections and not have to dig to find them. It looks amazing in the Jazzy Blossoms print.

Very small and has too many compartments.
I bought this in plum crazy, but it just doesn't do the print justice. It is a decent size purse from the outside, but it is divided into 3 compartments on the inside, all with separate zippers. The 2 compartments on the outside are very small and wouldn't fit much. The center compartment is also VERY narrow and small. I don't think I could fit half of the contents that I have in the little mandy. Also, it's just not an attractive purse and not worth the money in my opinion.

Love this bag
I have this bag in jazzy blooms, it is the perfect size for everything. When i bought it, i did not realize how many compartments it has. Nice secure areas for sunglasses or anything. It has 2 large zip compartments one on each side of the bag. I took it traveling and it was wonderful for organizing plus a slip pocket on the outside for cell phone. I wish they were not retiring this. It is the best bag since the betsey. In my opinion it is better than the betsey.

cute but small.
This is what I have in my Whitney:
Large vera bradley cosmetic bag,
small tube lotion,
Large "post it" notes & pens.
I have to pack it in neatly or else it won't fit. I was going to return the bag but I didn't want to go thru with the hassle. So I decided to keep it and make it work. I do get many compliments. But If you are used to a large bag, this isn't for you. The zip compartments on the side don't reach the bottom of the purse. This would be great for someone who buys medium sized purses.

Great purse for a senior
New to Vera Bradley, bought the Whitney purse in Plum Crazy. Am 65+ and love the color and style. Would definitely recommend. Look forward to new sales.
