First Vera Bradley
Let me start off with the fact that I HATE carrying a purse. Most purses get so heavy and cluttered and the flimsiness of other purses doesn't help. I bought the zip i.d in Happy Snails and it was so convenient so the very next day I went and bought the Mandy in Happy Snails. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. The thick, lush quality of the material is surprisingly light weight! The purse has SIX pockets on the inside and one on the outside. The pockets make for amazing organization, not counting whats in the pockets, I have my zip i.d., my checkbook and an umbrella. THAT'S IT!!!! I can find everything in less than 3 seconds and the outside pocket is perfect to slip my phone in and out of weather I'm in the car or the store or whatever. Perfect purse and I'm hooked!!!

I purchased this bag in "Happy Snails" for my mother who is 84 along with a matching wallet. She can no longer carry heavy leather bags so I thought this would be a fashionable alternative. She loves it! It is light and there are enough pockets that she has a place for everything and every thing is in it's place. I am glad there is a zipper closure for added security and the size is just right. She can carry the bag or she can put it up on her shoulder. All in all this is the perfect bag for a senior who still wants to be in the "fashionable crowd". We are now going back for a 2nd bag in one of the newer colors. We think the quality of Vera bags is absolutely exceptional!

Perfect everyday bag!
This is a well balanced bag in every sense. The interior pockets are a great size to fit all the smaller things I need - in one pocket I can comfortably fit a small hand sanitizer, a travel sized Bath and Body Works lotion, and chapstick. And, since there are six interior pockets, organization is easy. Even with all of the pockets full I can fit my wallet, iPad in otter box case, package of baby wipes, bottle of water, and still not have to fight for space. I am always in and out of my office during the work day, and I love that I can fit a file folder inside the bag without it getting squished or bent. I can't zip it up because the file is barely too tall, but it still fits inside nicely. The rigid bottom is extremely helpful because the bag will stand up when you set it down whether it is totally full or just partially. Even with all the interior space, I never feel like I am carrying an overly large bag. Again, well balanced.
