Safety feature does not work! Not as advertised!
I purchased the breakaway lanyard in Ribbons after seeing it in a Vera Bradley "Liz on Location" video from the Vera Bradley iPad app. In the video, the push-buckle is advertised as a safety feature that "breaks away" from around your neck when you tug on it. I work at a hospital and figured this would be a stylish way to carry my hospital ID around my neck with the added practicality of being easily torn away from my neck in an emergency where I would need to remove my IDs quickly. I've tried several times and the push-buckle breakaway feature simply does not work, even when you really pull very hard! It's not much of a safety feature at all. I should have just gone with the regular lanyard and saved myself a few extra dollars and the disappointment. Ribbons is a gorgeous pattern, however, and supports a great cause!

Cute and functional
I volunteer at an animal shelter and needed some way to keep up with my keys so that they didn't fall out of my pockets or painfully squish into my thighs while I was squatting down to scoop litter boxes. I didn't want to bring my purse with me because I was afraid it would get all hairy, so I bought this lanyard. I'm so glad I did. It looks really cute, it matches all my other Tutti Frutti stuff, and it helps keep my keys out of the way. Also, the cats like playing with it. :-)

Great for school
This lanyard is the perfect option for a school ID or lunch card. The breakaway feature is very useful and is a big plus to this product. It is big enough for all of my school IDs and can even fit a pack of gum! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is practical and stylish.
