Gorgeous bag but the straps :(
Absolutely gorgeous bag with a pretty scalloped edging. Great size. But oh dear, the straps. I have rheumatoid arthritis and this caused my shoulders terrible distress because they cut right into the joint - I had a lightweight card holder, my sunglasses, a box of mints, a pen and small pad, my meds, and a small bottle of water ....... I couldn't stand it, it was so uncomfortable. Sad, because it looked so good.

I bought this in Flower Shower. It's a beautiful bag. Love the scalloped detail. My first bag had a little too much of the yellow-ish color, so I returned to the store and the saleslady was kind enough to take out all the bags she had and let me choose the one I liked. I almost decided to get the Petal Paisley bag thinking I wouldn't like any of the Flower Shower bags, but I did find the perfect one. I love it!
I was really debating on whether to keep my bag or not after reading the reviews but I have no problems with it. The handles do not cut into me. But more pockets would have been a bonus. It holds everything I need and I'm known to stuff my bags to the gills! Thankfully, Vera Bradley bags are not heavy so all my stuff isn't as bad in a Vera bag versus a heavy leather bag. My iPad goes everywhere with me so it holds my iPad, iPod, heavy wallet, cosmetics, glasses, water, book....just to name a few things I carry. I do plan to use this bag during my summer vacation. Really looking forward to summer, the beach, and using my new bag more!

I LOVE this bag!
I bought this tote right before a trip to Florida. I jammed it full of stuff and it held up great. I use it for my everyday purse now. I find it very sturdy and I get compliments on it all the time. I've been very happy with it. Some reviews said the straps were too thin. Maybe if they were a little wider that would be nice, but it really doesn't bother me and the straps don't cut into my shoulder.
