Cute, But Not Cute Enough
As someone who doesn't normally use purses, I wanted to try one out. I didn't want something too big that would make me not want to carry it around, or something too small that made it not worth bringing a purse along. For me, this was in the "too small" category. It's flat, hardly opens, and looks odd if I try to carry it on my shoulder. And if I try to fit anything more than I could fit in my jeans pockets, it makes the purse an odd shape. The bows were nice and the pattern was great as always, but for me it was not worth the price.

I love this bag! My good friend got this bag and the matching flip flops in the Poppy Fields color to me as a gift. I wear them together all the time! I absolutely love these colors- you can wear so much with it!! Now I am hooked! I am currently shopping for the accessories. I'm giving this review 4 stars simply because the bag doesn't stand up, so it is probably time to wash. But overall, it is excellent quality and would buy another color. Just need to not spend too much, and practice good self control!

Cute bag for going out with friends!
I love this bag so much! It was one of my first Vera Bradley bag (Totally Turq) and I use it for EVERYTHING! I can easily fit a small lotion/hand sanitizer in the little pockets on the sides, and my Carry It All Wristlet slides right in next to my iPod and Kindle! It's perfect for everything I carry with me! I honestly thought it would be smaller and that just makes it all the more fun! I love the little bows on the sides, too!

I love my Olivia!
I purchased an Olivia in Simply Violet and it's adorable! I use it as my Fall/Winter bag and I use my Cha Cha Handbag (Discontinued) in Call me Coral as my Spring/Summer bag and I love them both! I would recommend this bag to anyone who doesn't have too much to carry.

Sweet little purse
I shopped VB on line for the first time and indulged in several products to see what VB is all about. I got the Olivia in the "sittin' in a tree" pattern which is very nice (love the little blue birds). I recommend that the handles be made at least 4 inches longer. As they are now, the purse rests higher than I'd like. Overall, it's a fun little bag for one of my first VB purchases.

Unsure about strap, but good size for me
I prefer smaller purses, so this is the perfect size for me. I can easily fit my Mini Zip Wallet, phone, keys, and sunglasses in it with a little help from the extra pockets inside. The only thing I would change about this bag would be to make the strap just a smidge longer. But that doesn't bother me enough to keep this from being in my regular purse rotation. :)

This purse is PERFECT size for me! I never carry around alot of stuff. Theres 3 REALLY spacious pockets for like,mini handsanitizers,chapstick/lipgloss,and your phone! Its surprisingly very roomy,too! I would HIGHLY reccomend this purse for people that want a medium sized purse,its not too huge or too small. Plus,it was my first Vera,which makes it extra special! =)

Fashionable, but practical
The "Olivia" has a lot of space and endurance. The pocket inside is very handy for small things. It is also nice because you can achieve a fashionable look without the huge bag. Overall, the "Olivia" has been a good investment.

Adorable, but not a practical design
I REALLY wish I read the reviews before I ordered this bag online. If I had a true sense of the smallish size of the bag, I would have ordered something different. First, what I love about the bag-the print and the overall quality. Five star. What I do not like is the flatness in terms of the bag's demension. I expected a little bit of width, which I think would have served this otherwise lovely design, well. This handbag seems to be better suited to my 11 year old daughter's needs in terms of what it can hold, rather than that of an adult's day to day needs., so being that it is a very cute bag, I will be giving it to my daughter and ordering another design for myself.

Small, occasional bag
Should be noted, this is a very small bag - with no internal or exterior pockets. Having said that, it's nice & not very expensive. My girlfriend liked it but was disappointed at first with the lack of pockets compared to other Vera bags she has. It's likely made for a night out kind of occasion, rather than something you would always carry.
