I love this bag!!!
I own this bag from it's first go around in Mod Floral Blue. I love this bag!! It holds so much and doesn't feel heavy, and the strap is long enough to go crossbody on me and I'm not a skinny mini!
It has 3 slip pockets on the inside, two pockets on the outside, a pocket at each end and a zippered compartment in the back. I like to slip my phone and my keys in the front two pockets, my sunglasses in the side pockets and the inside for basic organization.
It's an amazing bag and I can't wait to get it in Fanfare and probably Bayou Blue.

Elated this is back!!
I cannot tell you how excited I am to have this bag back. I have several of them and they are my favorite style. When this bag was no longer offered I was devastated. I tried another bag but it fell short of my expectations and requirements for a purse. I love the cross body strap and all the pockets. I can find anything I need in my purse, even in the dark, because there is a pocket for everything. I will be buying at least one of these, maybe a couple. I only wish it was offered in more colors; none of these are my favorites. Thank you, Vera Bradley, for bringing this back. Maybe all those letters I wrote helped after all. :)

Strap drop fits!
I think the very first thing that needs to be addressed about this bag is the strap drop. The description states 44" but for most ladies that is not long enough to be a crossbody bag. I was terrified when I saw the were coming back with an even shorter strap. I never got the old style because I assumed it was too short. WIth it coming out again and Flower Shower consuming me, I had to find out once and for all what is up with the strap drop. I went to my local retailer and tried it on. I extended the strap as far as it would go and it fit! It must have something to do with the design of the bag. Perhaps how it dips down in the middle. I'm 5'7 and fluffy. If a strap drop is less than 52" I can't wear it because I have a long torso. I'm so happy the CS works for me! I have one coming in the mail now.
