I LOVE this tote! It may be my favorite because of the structure. It has a great handle drop. The rolled handles, the shape of the bag on the top and the pleated pockets on the side make this a beautiful bag! I use it for all my essentials plus diapers and wipes. Hurry and get one before it is gone... the color Provencal is amazing on this bag!

More like a purse
This bag is nice and roomy. It is sized more like a purse, than a tote. I love inside pockets; and this bag has two inside. I wish it had four. I like to separate small items in the pockets, and this doesn't really allow that so much. For the most part the handles stay put on my shoulder, but sometimes slip off. It has a nice wide base, so it stands up well. All in all, I am pleased with it.

Every day purse and diaper bag.
I ordered this bag based on reviews that it worked great as a school tote. I figured that if it worked well as a school tote, it could work well as an everyday purse and diaper bag.
•Pockets: I really like the two outside pockets and the two inside. I used the outside pockets to carry my cell phone, keys, and sunglass case with no issues. The inside pockets are wide and deep, so I was able to keep my wallet in one (I have the Euro Traveler wallet) and in the other, I put various snacks for my toddler.
• Depth of the bag: The depth of the bag had enough room for me to have my utitities bag (basically my medicine cabinet in a large cosmetic bag), my lip glosses (in a small cosmetic bag), distractions for my toddler (medium cosmetic bag), and a couple of diapers, and a blanket for my infant.
•Magnetic closure: Because the bag had a magnetic closure, the opening of the bag was very wide, so I could fit a lot of stuff in. When I wanted it closed, it snapped shut.
•Soft rolled handles: Even though the length of the handles were just right and sat comfortably, it did become difficult to keep the shoulder handles on. I wear my infant in a baby carrier while I grocery shop. Most of the time they stayed on my shoulder, but one would slide off from time to time which wasn't a major problem, but definitely something I don't want to have to deal with. I would've prefered wider straps for better stability and to distribute the weight evenly. I'm sure with books or binders, these handles could really dig into your shoulder.
• Depth or Width: Even though I said the depth of the bag was a pro, I would've liked a little more room to be able to put a change of clothes for my infant and toddler. A few inches more either in depth or width would've been perfect.
Overall Critique: A good bag if used for just everyday use. If using as an everyday bag and diaper bag, I would say it's average. I don't think I'd use this for everyday, but more for something to use when I only do quick trips.

More colors, please!
I love this tote! Of all my Vera bags it is my favorite. But I live far enough north that I feel funny carrying around a bag done up with sunny flowers while I'm walking in the snow. Vera, please make it in some darker colors like Midnight Blues. Who ever designed it is a genius. Sized just right for water bottles, iPads, MacBook Airs, and all the stuff a modern girl has to have! I actually feel like it is one of my best friends.

More like a purse
I ordered this tote because I wanted something a little bit bigger than my tote I have from Vera. However, this is more like a purse style to me. I think it is adorable and I love it, however it is much smaller than it looks.

Awesome casual handbag
Loved this bag. I go everywhere with both my Kindle, mini iPad, plus the Thermos water bottle, and this bag was just perfect. The 2 inside pockets kept my tablets separate from all the knick-knacks I threw in there, and also protected them by keeping upright and enclosed in the bag.
My previous mini-iPad screen cracked because I threw everything in the bag (yes it had a cover) so I was looking for another bag with pocket to protect the new mini-iPad. I bought the Campus Tote and the Glenna, but I much prefer the Campus Tote. My Kindle and mini-iPad can also fit in the outside pockets for easy in and out (airport, airplane). The outside pockets are perfect for water bottles. The "cinched" top helped keeping the bottle staying in the bag.
Of all VB's mid-size tote, I love this one the most, more than Glenna, Go Round Tote, Three-O Tote, and even the Villager. This one doesn't have a zippered top but I prefer it.

Great School Bag
This is a great tote for school. I was a little concerned that it might not be wide enough for books/binders, but I grabbed a binder while I was in the store to check and it fit fine. I'm a university student, so I often have a lot to carry, but I can easily fit two full binders, a notebook, a couple folders and my tablet in this bag. Additionally, the internal pockets are just the right size for my tablet! I have all my pens, pencils, etc. in the other internal pocket, my CamelBak in one outside pocket, and my keys and wallet in the other. Everything fits wonderful and the rolled straps keep in on my shoulder.
