Best bag ever!!!!
I love this bag. it is light and even when filled its doesn't weigh you down. I carry my full size IPAD in an otterbox wherever I go and with the Mandy it zips up even when stuffed. The inside pockets even hold my Iphone4 in a defender series otterbox without any trouble. Also the items in the pockets do not flow over into the center compartment so there is tons of room yet it still is light to carry. Plus the handles are quilted. I had in my Mandy bag:
IPad in thick otterbox, my nook in a nook cover, 2 large calander (8x10),
Steno pad, small notebook, tissues, wipes. That was in in the center. In the interior pockets: small wallet, IPhone in thick otterbox,4 pens,2 pencils,2 highlighters, Chapstick,antibacterial gel medication brush nail file floss my large set of keys gum and mints. Didnt need the outside pocket but just for fun I put my IPhone in the otterbox in there and it fit with room to spare. LOVE THIS BAG!!!! If considering buying do so you won't be disappointed. I will be getting another real soon

I purchased this bag in "Happy Snails" for my mother who is 84 along with a matching wallet. She can no longer carry heavy leather bags so I thought this would be a fashionable alternative. She loves it! It is light and there are enough pockets that she has a place for everything and every thing is in it's place. I am glad there is a zipper closure for added security and the size is just right. She can carry the bag or she can put it up on her shoulder. All in all this is the perfect bag for a senior who still wants to be in the "fashionable crowd". We are now going back for a 2nd bag in one of the newer colors. We think the quality of Vera bags is absolutely exceptional!

First Vera Bradley
Let me start off with the fact that I HATE carrying a purse. Most purses get so heavy and cluttered and the flimsiness of other purses doesn't help. I bought the zip i.d in Happy Snails and it was so convenient so the very next day I went and bought the Mandy in Happy Snails. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. The thick, lush quality of the material is surprisingly light weight! The purse has SIX pockets on the inside and one on the outside. The pockets make for amazing organization, not counting whats in the pockets, I have my zip i.d., my checkbook and an umbrella. THAT'S IT!!!! I can find everything in less than 3 seconds and the outside pocket is perfect to slip my phone in and out of weather I'm in the car or the store or whatever. Perfect purse and I'm hooked!!!
