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.

I was so interested in this bag but once I got it, it's much to small for what I carry daily
I love the different pockets but it just needs to be bigger

Love this purse!
I have been collecting Vera Bradley bags now since 2003, and I have to say the Whitney is my favorite purse yet, and I'm terribly disappointed that it's being discontinued. It holds and organizes everything I'd ever want to carry with me, yet looks sleek and dressy even when full. I attribute that to the side pockets NOT going all the way down - that was a brilliant style design to keep this bag from becoming triangular and bottom heavy. Another reviewer mentioned that the inside small pockets could be quilted, and I agree - that would be the only change I'd make to this purse, but it's not a deal breaker for me. I'm so sad to see this one go, after such a short time available.

Perfect size handbag!
I love the size of the Whitney, even more so after I brought it home. I chose Ellie Blue and after close inspection, love the length straps. It fits ccomfortably under my arm and the straps stay flat on my shoulder. I think the piping around the bag makes it look well made and the three zipper compartments add to the organization. I agree that they should've quilted the inside pockets but i know that the Chain bags wasn't either. That is why I didn't give the Whitney 5 stars.

Not What I Thought...
I was excited to get this purse, but then was very let down. Much smaller then I was hoping for.

I love the style of this bag. However, I ordered it online and when I got it, it was much too small. I bought it for all the pockets and such, but I can hardly use it because of the size.

Straps too short
I love the design of this purse and all the pockets inside. However, the straps are too short, i would totally love this purse if it had at least a 12" strap drop.
