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!!

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!

Love the Grand Tote for Everything!
This is a great, lightweight bag that I use all the time. From a weekend trip to a day activity, it's a perfect bag. Some reviewers mention how big the bag is but I don't think it is too big. I am 5' 6' and its a good size for me but my daughter who is 5'1'' also carries one often. I own it in Suzani and Midnight Blues and my daughter has Rhythm and Blues. She works in a school and uses it to carry multiple bags - backpack, purse, lunch, etc - so she only has to carry one bag from her car. She also packs it for weekend trips. I don't mind that it doesn't zip because I can get more in it and easily see what I do have in it. The Grand Tote and the Vera are the two bags I pack for traveling. The Grand Tote holds enough clothes for a week or all the essentials for a day trip. I even use it for daylong shopping trips at the mall so I don't have to carry multiple small bags. LOVE IT!
