Love this bag!
I was carrying the Alice bag in Totally Turq (which is also awesome), but fell in love with the new Island Blooms print. I went into my local Vera dealer, and the Laura bag caught my eye. It has all the room of a larger bag, but is not bulky. All the pockets on the inside are great, and the Island Blooms print is so pretty for spring. In the few weeks I have been carrying it, I have gotten many compliments on it.

Yes. I admit I am OCD!!
I recently purchased my second Vera Bradley purse, with accessories. The purse is "Laura", in "Go Wild". I love the pattern! So I went a "little" crazy. #I did warn you I am OCD.# Got the purse, the billfold, the make up bag, the check book cover, the glasses case and change purse. I looked on line to check the status of my order a day or so later and found the items had been discounted. I called and asked if I could possibly get the discounted price and she said "Yes". So, I now had a $46.00 credit. What to do? What to do? So I went back on line and order the "Good Book Cover" and the planner, all in "Go Wild". But then the billfold had a defect, so I am returning it. Decided that I didn't really need a billfold. After all, I already have the check book cover and the change purse. So I went with the wristlet. To offset the credit of the billfold, I also ordered the small lunch bag and the planner. #The small lunch bag will make a great place to keep my medications.# So basically, I have one of everything, in "Go Wild:". And just in the nick of time, too!! Found out that pattern is being retired. Anyway, I love all my new "Vera's Go Wild". And if I run true to form, I will use these for the next 4 or 5 years!

I purchased this bag in rosy posies and it is very roomy. it has many pockets on the inside to put your wallet, cell phone, ect. It also works pretty well for holding clothes. I just wish that there was a zipper at the top opening of the bag so stuff wouldn't fall out that easily.

Love this purse!
I recently got bit by the Vera Bradley bug and when I saw there is a purse with my name, I had to get it. I am not disappointed at all!
Lots of room with not a lot of bulk. The cinched sides are a very cute detail. It looks like the big sister to the Emma purse!
I bought this in Very Berry Paisley and was able to get the turn lock wallet to match.
I don't see Vera Bradley purses where I live. Maybe that is why it took me so long to get hooked! I see other women checking my purse out... I know they want one too!

This is a great bag. It goes over the shoulder nicely and stays in place well. I have it in 3 colors. It holds plenty. The inside slip pockets are just the right size as well as the inside zipper. Contents stay organized well without a lot of digging. The bag expands well. The cinched sides are a plus. I am very picky about my bags. The contrast at the bottom and cinched sides set this bag apart. Would prefer quilted interior otherwise no complaints. Also like the fact that it has a cardboard removable bottom.

Amazing job Vera Bradley!!
I received this bag for my birthday last December in Rosy Posies. I just started getting into Vera bradley. When you open it up is has a nice wide inside and its hight is perfect. It has a zipper pocket above 1 little pocket and on the other side there are 3 little pockets great for carrying lip gloss, or what ever small things you have. On the front of the bag is a nice medium sized pocket for holding an iPhone or iPod touch. Then on top of that is a little zipper compartment that can hold any small, thin item. Overall this bag is amazing and I'm so happy that I own it. Buy it!!

I was so upset when the Villager was no longer made. However, I just purchased the Laura with matching wallet and I love it! It is actually better for me than the Villager. I love the cinching on the sides. It is just the perfect size. I love Vera Bradley because of the organized pockets sewn into the inside of the purse. I could not be more organized!!

A friend gave me the Laura bag in Doodle Daisy and it's quite nice. I like the inside pockets which hold a lot. I like the outside zipper pocket where I keep my cell phone ~ I know it's not going to fall out with the zipper closure. I didn't care for the structured bottom so I turned the bag inside out and removed the bottom panel. Removing this panel didn't change the look of the bag and makes it more comfortable for me to carry over my shoulder. With the structured bottom in place the bottom edges of the bag would poke me when carrying it over my shoulder and it didn't lay the way I wanted it to. But removing the panel solved the problem. I would purchase this bag in other colors. Nice size and holds all that I need it to hold.

I love this bag! At first I thought I wouldn't like that the top didn't zip but it doesn't bother me at all. It holds all my stuff (wallet, VB cosmetic trio, small hand sanitizer, small sunscreen, gum, tissues, etc) plus my kindle when I need it and even a water bottle. And it is comfortable to carry. The only complaint I have is I wish the zip pockets and front slip pocket were a little deeper. My iPhone doesn't slide completely down into the front slip pocket. Please don't retire this style!

Great purse size to handle
The Laura bag is the perfect size for me. I use it often because it's not to heavy to carry on my shoulder without it hurting. I have it in the pattern heather and it looks great on the bag! This would be a great gift for back to school or someone looking for a great purse.
