A Favorite! Please Bring Back!!!!!
What a perfect handbag! Timelessly stylish, practical, super pocket design, great size (like Goldilocks said, "not too bug, not too small, but j-u-s-t right!"). So sorry to see it disappear :(( How cute it would be in some of the newest colors!
Please rethink this one.....and bring back SOON!!!

Soooooo disappointed to hear......
I have 3 of the Stephanie bags over the years--they are just about the best bag you ever had. The design is phenomenal. I wanted to get a new color and am sooooo disappointed to read that it is being retired.
PLEASE BRING IT BACK!

Best teacher bag EVER
My sister-in-law got me this bag for Christmas a few years ago. As a teacher, I carried it every day to school. It has plenty of pockets inside and out to fit all the random things I might need at meetings, for grading papers, etc. I finally realized I needed a new one, as my first was getting a little raggedy looking. I bought one about a month ago and just bought another today. I feel I need to stockpile them since it sounds like (from the other reviews) Stephanie is retired and not returning. Too bad. I could carry her for the rest of my career!

Good bag, holds a lot!
I recently got this bag, and am growing more attached to it! I like that it zips closed, it is very roomy, and has several interior as well as exterior pockets. The only problem I have is that I can't get the straps to "straighten out". They look as though they have been packed away for a long time and are quite stiff. I am hoping the more I use it, this will correct itself. It is also a little more shallow than I like, but that is ok since it zips closed. I

Don't retire a perfect thing!
I have a multitufe of lovely Stephanie bags and find it the most perfectly designed and constructed handbag I have ever had! Please don't retire this beautiful product. I will miss adding to my collection as I carry a Stephanie every day. The condiguration of pockets is just PERFECT for iPhone, keys, wallet, cosmetics - all the myriad of things we must carry in our busy days. PLUS, it is light in weight, washes like a dream, and just wears like iron. Please, Vera, don't take our Stephanies away from us fans!!! This is a most beloved product in your long line of winners!!

Best Bag EVER!!
Of all my VB bags, love this bag the most. Bought in several colors, as it looked like it may be discontinued. Shoulder straps lie flat on my shoulder, never slips off. Fits nicely under my arm. Opens wide for easy view of contents. Multiple outside pockets for cell phone, car keys, ipod, plane tickets, etc. Plenty of pockets inside. Holds a lot without being so deep that you lose small items. Of course, it launders easily. Please do not discontinue this bag!!!!

The Stephanie was my first ever Vera bag and it kicked off my obsession!
I bought it along with the Snap Wallet in Paprika. Love that print!
The bag is quite large and can hold SO much, it has a total of FIVE outer pockets, 4 slip, 1 zipper that runs the length of the bag, similar to the old Bowler. The outer pockets are perfect for your cell, keys, lip stick, mirror, hand sanitizer and you'd still have room! The zipper pocket is perfect for you wallet, it'll keep it safe and sound.
The interior of the bag 3 more slip pockets and 1 zipper pocket. I use the slip pockets to hold a small wallet with my GC and loyalty cards in it. My notepad, cheques and pens in the other. And a lotion and lip gloss in the last. The zipper is good for private things. The pleats on it are beautiful, as is the ribbon placement. And it can carry quite a bit.
The bag itself is big enough to carry A LOT. I can even fit my iPad in it, snugly. It can get a bit heavy when packed full tho, the bag empty feels heavier than other Vera's dues to the rings on the straps. Also, it is NOT washable. The bag seems to be constructed from some sort of hard board on the inside and can, therefore, NOT get wet. If it was made out of some sort of extra stiff interfacing to hold it's shape but be able to wash it, this bag would be perfect. Other then that, it's perfect! It's such a beautiful bag and I wish it would come back. It is unrivaled at being the most pocket happy Vera handbag around. Being 26, I needed something that was versatile... It can look casual and chic, and even a bit dressy. Perfect for a mom who carries a lot, and for the working woman looking to carry her things utter organization. Perfection, please bring it back, remodeled.

I love this bag SO much! Please DON'T discontinue!
The Stephanie is my favorite VB bag I have bought so far. My best friend introduced me to VB earlier this year and I've been in love since. I have bought 4 bags from VB and Stephanie (my bag is in Poppy Fields) is by far my favorite. It is so roomy with so many pockets. I can fill it up and it still isn't overly heavy because the bag itself is light. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring this bag back!! I want to purchase more!!!
