Emily in Citron
Emily is my favorite shoulder bag from Vera. It is similar in size to the Glenna after looking at them together. The Emily I love because there are three separate areas for organization. The zippered middle holds my large wallet, mirror cosmetic from Vera and a few other small things. I use the outside magnetic pockets for a Kindle keyboard and my phone, and the other side for ear buds and stuff I use at the gym.
The size is the perfect shoulder bag size, it doesn't overwhelm, and it's not so small as to look awkward. It is light even with all of my things inside. The Citron is a great color. I wear a lot of grey, navy and black with denim, and against those colors the Citron just pops. It's not overwhelming with the yellow or neon color, it really does look pulled together.

Love the bag - wish it came in more solid colors.
I bought this bag last spring in Venetian Paisley. I love it! The straps are long enough, and there's lots of room for the turn lock wallet, phone, eyeglasses, and cosmetic bag - plus the stuff my husband gives me to carry! I wish that it was available in dark brown or navy. I prefer to carry a solid color purse with the patterned accessories.

Best. Vera. Purchase. Ever.
I have bought many, many Veras over the past few years and this is by far my favorite. It is perfect with the "elbow test" as it easily slips onto your shoulder without hitting the elbow. It is very organized and roomy, but not too big. I am so happy with this purchase, I am considering the same bag in another style. I bought the Olivia Pink, my new favorite, but may look into some other patterns. Great job!!!
