This purse is PERFECT!!
I have the Convertible Crossbody in Provencal!! This purse is perfect in every way--it holds tons! The two outer pockets are perfect for my cell phone and notepad and pens; the four inside pockets are roomy and spacious. Love that I can go "hands free" with the adjustable strap as a crossbody or wear in over my shoulder! I was a diehard fan of a purse with a zipper closure, but this purse has a magnetic closure that's hard to beat. It is STRONG!!! I debated whether or not to use it on an airline flight for fear all of the contents would spill out of it during the flight while it was stored under the seat, but it was perfect! I definitely MUST buy this in another color, and SOON!!

Love At First Site!
I have been shopping my VB store pretty regularly lately and this bag had caught my eye every time I walked into the store. I decided to give it a go in Canterberry Cobalt. Just a note on the pattern itself, I really didn't care for it after seeing the photos of it online. However in person, the only word I think that accurately describes it is striking and seeing it online just doesn't do the pattern justice. The trim in this pattern is just beautiful and you really get to see it in this bag with it folded down. I must say as much as I think it's nice to have the tote option, I very much dislike the look with the flaps up and will probably never carry this bag that way. I do LOVE the look with the flap and handles folded down. The interior is not quilted and that's kind of a bummer but the bag is very roomy and organized well. I was comparing its size against the Mandy bag. The size of this is a lot more useful (it's a little taller with flaps down and a tad longer, width is about the same.) I also like that you have a crossbody option although in my opinion it is super cute as a shoulder bag with the adjustable strap pulled short. It's nice that you have different carrying options with this bag. I love it and will very likely purchase another. I do recommend. However if you like quilted interiors in your Vera's I would say this might not be the bag for you. It's a great mid size choice. Not too big, not too small.

great crossbody but not for everyday
I just got this crossbody, love the the idea of having 3 ways of carrying it. However when I put my items in. It doesn't hang well. I carry a cell phone in outside pocket, and keys in other outside pocket. Inside I have my turn lock wallett, bottle of water, small notebook and glasses. It is roomey, but it just doesn't hang well. I will carry , on occasions that I need a crossbody, but not for everyday.

This bag is perfect in all ways. It has just enough space for all my needs. I typically carry a lot of items, so finding the right bag that is the right size and right look is sometimes complicated but this bag definitely meets all of my requirements.

I Have been looking for a crossbody to replace my beloved saddle up, so this might be a little biased. This is a great bag if you carry a lot of skinny things but if you carry anything with bulk like a sun glass case and a wallet and check book the purse is to skinny. It does hold a lot of stuff but looks over full. I used it when I was traveling thinking it would be big enough. I was fussing with it all during the trip trying to keep it closed and make it look less bulky. this would be good if i was in college and was sticking with thing stuff and had another bag to carry stuff in. the biggest gripe was it wasn't expandable.

A Match Made In Heaven!
Many of the women in my family have been Vera fans for years. I have refrained except for the weekender because while I loved the organization of your products, the styles and patterns didn't fit my personality until now. I first saw the convertible crossbody featured on QVC and I thought wow! That is so me but alas the patterns weren't my taste at all so I held off. Then Heather came out and it was love at first sight! I immediately ordered this bag and I absolutely love it! It's the perfect size! There are three pockets on the interior perfect for tissues, cell (galaxy s4) and the pocket notes as well as a pen and pencil holder so I don't have to go digging at the bottom of the bag. There is a large zip compartment on the other wall to keep things secure. My all in one crossbody and the mirror cosmetic, in Heather of course, fit perfectly in the main compartment with my glasses case. It also holds my nook without having to flip the sides up into a tote and there is so much room to spare! I like to keep the sides down , I think it looks better and you can tuck the handles into the two outer pockets if you prefer. Overall, I am so pleased! Please, please, please, do not discontinue this item! I am hoping to buy it in La Neon Rose as it comes out the day after my birthday! Thanks for finally making a Vera that matches my personality and meets my needs!

Great both ways!!
Just got the bag in Sun Valley (possibly one of my favorite patterns by Vera!) and it's so great! It works perfect as a tote or a cross body. I thought that the large handles would get in the way when they were folded down but they're conveniently held down by magnets on both sides. It's really a great idea. I love the two "invisible" slip pockets on the side and all the pockets inside. Very great bag for traveling and every day :)!

My new go-to Vera purse!
When the new styles initially came out, I was debating between this and the two-way tote. I went with the two-way tote and ended up buying this one anyway! Well, I definitely prefer this bag! The outside slip pockets on each side REALLY make a big difference. I have found that I definitely prefer having those pockets to slip my phone and hand sanitizer into. The two-way tote would be much better if it had some sort of outside pocket. This bag is awesome! I love the versitility. I use it 3 ways: flaps folded down using long strap (over my should and cross-body), flaps up using the 2 handles and straps up with handles tucked inside using the longer strap. Vera does not make a more versatile bag! I love that you can start out using it the smaller way, with the flaps down, and if, for example you are shopping, and need to add stuff to your your bag you can totally accomadate that! You will not be sorry you purchased this bag! PROMISE! I loved this bag so much I bought it in a second color!

Best purse ever
You know I was all about the leather designer brand bags until I came across this bag. Comfort and ease just wins this bag 5 stars. I bought it just to use for vacations, but when I couldn't seem to stop using it even after vacation was over I knew I had to get one for work so I bought the solid black in this style and I am so excited to have a hands free comfortable stylish and super spacious bag! The magnetic closure is perfect. Its super easy to get in and out of but so secure. Pockets outside pockets inside make this bag so easy to keep organized. Love love love and hope Vera never discontinues this one. It's an awesome bag!

Smaller to Bigger Type tote, VERY CUTE! Plum Crazy
I have been looking at this VB CB purse for awhile. Finally decided to go ahead and buy it for my birthday. WHAT A GREAT CHOICE. In the passed I have used and love the reversible tote for several years now and decided to give this Convertible Crossbody a try. I love the flip up or down depending on what you need to put in it. I have a large book type calendar and being able to fit that in this purse is perfect. Love the 2 deep pockets on each side on the exterior. Several inside as well. Also the option to use the adjustable strap or hand straps are a great convinces.
