Perfect bag for a mom!
I am completely in love with this bag! When my son was born I had the diaper bag and loved the look and functionality of it. As he got a little bit older, I still needed a bag that would hold a lot of stuff, but not necessarily a diaper bag. My husband purchased this bag for me and it is exactly what I was looking for! It is so roomy without being huge. It can hold my wallet, keys, phone, chapstick, etc for me, plus a small package of baby wipes, a few diapers, a sippy cup, and a small toy or two. This is the PERFECT every day bag for a mom of a toddler or for a woman that just likes to keep lots of "just in case" stuff with her! Buy this bag!!

Great Everyday Bag!
I use my tote as a small diaper bag for my 2 year old daughter. It's the perfect size to take along on a quick run to the store. The bag holds a few diapers, wipes, a sippy cup, some snacks, and a few small toys, as well as my wallet and cell phone. Though I had to switch to the Vera bag with the addition of my newborn son, I still use the tote if I take one of the kids to the store.

Most Durable Ever
I have had the same Vera Bradley tote since May, 2010. I have literally used it every single day in lieu of a purse. I am an educator and move around carrying things all the time. I might also add that I am hard on my purses/totes-generally going through several per year. There is not one thing wrong my Vera Bradley tote bag. The only "problem" I have is that I need to get it cleaned. Daily use for nearly four years and it has seen cleaner days. Highly recommend for anyone who needs a dual-duty durable tote bag.

A Vera Classic
I have three of these and I really do love them. I think the pattern placement on the Tote is excellent, especially the border at the top of the bag. This is just a simple tote, but can be used for a variety of things from a shopping bag to an overnight bag to a book bag. I've used mine for all three!

For those smaller loads
I have the Large Colorblock, the Vera and the Get Carried Away and this is by far, much smaller. It has the 3 pockets on the inside, a toggle clousure which works nicely and the shoulder straps are a good length. It's perfect if you just want to carry a smaller load.

Good Tote for errands!
I like to use this tote when I need a medium- sized bag for errands or "café" days. I can put my VB Turnlock wallet, a magazine or book, small umbrella, small or medium cosmetic and a Surface tablet in this bag quite nicely. If I need to pick up a small item or two at the store I can toss it in this tote. I have tossed a pashmina in the tote just in case I'm chilly in the theater or restaurant. The straps are nice but the bag can be heavy if you are a "kitchen sink" type of woman. VB makes larger bags if you need to carry a lot of stuff that may add weight # shoes, jackets, sweaters, etc.#

Okay, but seems a little cheap
My first Vera Bradley bag was the Vera. I like that bag, but it's bigger then what I thought it'd be so I wanted something smaller. I thought this would be just like it. But it's not. I know it's a cheaper bag, but I thought it was because of the size. The 2 things I don't like about this bag are the straps and the inside pockets. The straps aren't quilted like the Vera ones. They are this hard material, and they were all creased from shipping. The inside pockets aren't as nice either- they are a thin material, vs the Vera- which is a nice thick quilted material. I still don't know what to do with this bag. I may keep it. Or return it for one that's a little bit more expensive. I also bought the Mandy for my mother in law- that bag has quilted straps and nicer material for the inside pockets.

Perfect for theme parks, vacations, and school!
I got this for Christmas and used it in Disney World and it was perfect! It holds a lot and it's not cumbersome to carry around. The strap fits nicely on my shoulder and the pockets were easy to access. I also use this in school when I'm walking around campus and have a lot of books to carry.
