Great School Bag
This is a great tote for school. I was a little concerned that it might not be wide enough for books/binders, but I grabbed a binder while I was in the store to check and it fit fine. I'm a university student, so I often have a lot to carry, but I can easily fit two full binders, a notebook, a couple folders and my tablet in this bag. Additionally, the internal pockets are just the right size for my tablet! I have all my pens, pencils, etc. in the other internal pocket, my CamelBak in one outside pocket, and my keys and wallet in the other. Everything fits wonderful and the rolled straps keep in on my shoulder.

GREAT EVERYDAY TOTE BAG
I got my first Campus Tote in Paisley meets plead wich I am in love with. I find this bag not small or big but perfect in the middle. Has great two big wrap around outside pockets. The roll straps are wonderful. They stay on your shoulders without sliding off which is a plus.
I would have loved it more if this came in a zipper top instead of a snap button and if the inside pockets also had a zipper so nothing falls out if it tipped over. So far I haven't had any problems.
So got a 2nd pair in Suzani print when it went on sale. highly recommend.
VERA PLEASE MAKE THIS TOTE BAG IN A ZIPPER TOP!!! Otherwise would have given a 5 Stars.

The right sized tote for the job.
I have a variety of totes, most of them larger than this one. The smaller size appeals to me and I am not tempted to overload it. I like this one for my iPad, a knitting project, a magazine, notepad and paper, and wristlet with phone. I carry it on my shoulder and have everything I need while waiting for appointments or short trips. For those people who seem surprised by the size, I encourage you to check out the product dimensions first.

So much more than I imagined
This is my every day purse. It's like a 3rd arm to me. I can fit everything I could possibly need in here. I can put a couple of books and snacks inside along with my iPad and cosmetic bag and much more. If I am shopping, I can put small bags inside as well. I can even put by thermal cup in the side pocket and it's very secure.
It's durable, pretty and I would be lost without it! ! !

Love this tote!!!
I bought this tote to use as a purse/tote. I'm a nanny and hate carrying 2 bags. This one is perfect! I can carry all of my items as well as a few diapers & wipes. The side pockets are perfect for carrying a sippy cup and or water bottle. Plus shacks and a few toys! The durability and washing ability are definite pluses!

Great bag, a littl small for a tote.
I ordered this tote when it went on sale. I am happy with it because it is really cute. To me, it looks more like a large purse than an actual tote bag. As others have mentioned, the magnetic closure does close really hard, so I hope that doesn't cause problems in the future from wear and tear. This bag is small on the inside if you're looking for something that holds a whole lot. I easily fit a change of clothes for the gym, along with a water bottle. My sneakers can also stuff inside, but it won't close with them in it. I think it's a good size for carrying a variety of items to go to and from work, going to someone's house, the pool or beach, etc.

Good multi-purpose bag
I have used this bag for both work (carrying a 13 inch laptop) and as a small diaper bag. I think it works really well for both uses. When my computer is in the bag, the outside pockets are tight, but I don't really need them, everything fits inside. The magnets are really strong and sometimes hard to pull apart, but with all my work stuff it is too full to close, everything still stays in. I also have the plain tote and the large laptop tote, so this one falls in between in size for me. It is also not too large to carry as a purse.

Magnetic button closure has ripped off
After 5 months of gentle use, the magnetic button closure has ripped off. Its almost like the magnets are too strong, making the bag difficult to open and putting too much stain on the buttons. This was my first Vera Bradley bag and I am certainly not impressed by the poor quality. It's not big enough to be a school tote..You might be able to put a tablet in it, but it's not big enough for books, binders, etc. I use it as a handbag. It doesn't have any inside zipper compartments and no zipper top so things are always falling out of it.

Amazing Bag for School!
When my old Tote was getting old, I decided to get a new bag that was bigger. This bag was it! But when I went to the store, it looked pretty small, and I was wondering how I would hold anything in it. But when I put my supplies in it, it fit everything I needed for the first half of the school day! I could've put more in if I wanted to! Get this bag!
