Perfect for a beach bag or weekend tote.
Play close attention to the measurements - this bag is humongous!! I read the other reviews and expected big - but it's size still surprised me! I plan on using it for a beach bag to pack a couple of towels and lots of other stuff. Also will be great for a weekend trip. Be sure to note there is no closure on this bag - the top is open. The thickness of the fabric keeps the sides from collapsing - also has a cardboard base insert. Love the Camellia print!

This bag is big, but perfect!!!!
I ordered the Grand Tote in the Va Va Bloom color and I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! While it is quite large, it is perfect for travel and even better - school. I'm in college and have to pack around a lot. This bag is perfect - it has a zip pocket on the inside - I use to carry pens, student I.d, etc.. It even has a key clip so you're not constantly looking for your keys. I'm able to carry my laptop and the bulky charger, my iPad (all in the protective sleeves Vera Bradley offers) multiple textbooks, several binders, and even my purse!!!! If you are looking for a bag that holds a lot, this is the bag for you.
Wish I would have bought several at the time. This bag is so functional!

The PERFECT bag for teachers!!
As a teacher, I am have continued to search for the "perfect" bag to bring home my students' binders, spiral bound teaching books and mountains of papers. I needed a place to put my pens, pencils, highlighters, etc. and I wanted a place to be able to keep my phone and keys handy. It needed to be a bag that had longer straps/handles.
Enter the GRAND TOTE!!
Checks off every single need for this teacher!!
I have it in Plum Crazy! and have gotten tons of compliments and have even had other teachers stop me at conferences and classes to ask about the bag and how much it will hold!! I have 4 teaching friends who now also own it!
Should absolutely market it as THE bag for teachers!!
