Cute bag, so-so closure.
This is an adorable medium sized bag which has a lot of pluses. I really like the center zippered compartment and the outside pockets - it does have a lot of room which I put to good use while hauling my kids around. The only thing I don't like about the bag is the flap/magnet closure. I am really used to tote-style bags and appreciate not having to take them off when taking things in/out of the bag. With the Edie Satchel I have to take it off my shoulder to take my wallet out or put it back, and the flap closure doesn't always secure right away or comes undone quickly. I dislike walking around with a shallow purse such as this feeling like it's gaping open. That being said, I think that's just my preference and not a design flaw. The purse is adorable and easy to carry, and I will still definitely use it...it just won't be my favorite.

Love this purse
I had bought this purse at the vera 2014 outlet sale, I bought it in limes up. I wasn't too sure that I would like it being I've only ever use crossbody styles. But after the sale I fell in love with it once I put my belongings in it. It's very roomy and has many different parts to keep you organized, this is one of my favorite purses and I would love to get it in ribbons also. I have not had any troubles yet with the closer. I would recommend this purse to any one 18+ !

my first VB disappointment
I have/have had around two dozen Vera Bradley purses/totes, and this is the first one in which I have been disappointed. I love everything about it, except the closure. The flap is simply too short and the magnet too weak to keep it closed. It's fine when the bag is empty, but with only a modest amount in it, the magnet pops loose, the flap slides up, and in no time the purse is open, and contents of the bag are exposed. If I put in the amount of "stuff" I normally carry, the magnet on the flap does not reach its counterpart. This is definitely not one of the better VB bags for everyday use.

Love the purse but....
I love this purse but my biggest problem is the magnetic closure. It doesn't stay closed and my purse is always coming open. Needs to be redesigned.

Love the purse as it had just what I wanted for pockets; but I had to quit using it as the magnet closure wouldn't stay closed and I almost lost my VB wallet. Not good.

Lovely Bag, Great for Organization!
I am really enjoying this purse! The inside and outside pockets are terrific; I know where everything is! Along with my old Bowler and my Stephanie, this is becoming a favorite. Only flaw I notice is that the magnetic closure on the outside could be stronger; even when the bag is not quite full, it does not always stay secure. Other than that, this is the perfect everyday bag. Thanks again to Vera Bradley for making such attractive, sturdy, and beautiful bags!

Terrible magnet closure on front
Love the purse, but the magnet just won't stay closed. Guess I should only purchase bags with zippers.

I love, love, love this handbag! I have several other more expensive brands that have disappointed me. There has always been some aspect of them that did not fit my needs. This bag is perfect. Perfect size, perfect shape, perfect storage.....for a medium-sized bag, it carries a lot! The best part, I can see everything inside because of the not-too-tall profile. The pockets, both inside and out, hold as much as some of my bigger bags. I am very pleased with my purchase and intend to purchase several more in different patterns. Highly recommended!

This is my first Vera Bradley purse and I am in love! The multiple pouches and pockets are useful for all of my daily needs. My VB umbrella even fits well inside. :)
