The Holy Grail of Handbags
First of all, let me just give a round of applause for Vera Bradley on this one! They have finally come up with a bag that meets ALL of my pre-req's for a great handbag. Cute pattern, a front pocket, a zip top closure, wide opening into bag, lots of inside pockets, very generous space inside, lightweight and....FEET! I was so excited to see there were metal feet on the bottom of this purse, and to make it feel even more special a faux leather handle! I immediately fell in love and purchased, and I am not regretting it! It holds all of my necessities, my junk, and even has room to spare.
I bought this bag in the new Blue Bayou and I think it's just gorgeous. If you like to carry hobo's go ahead and give this new one a try! I really don't think there is any way to hate this bag. :)

Okay, I have never reviewed any of my vera bag, and have alot of them, but this has just become my all time favorite. I just switched from my baggallini messager, i just fit everything into it from the other bag and its light and still have more room, the strap fits perfect under my arms with my winter coat and I have larger arms I like that it is not snug under your arms, but you still have the same effect of being snug, you have to try it to see what I am talking about. Yes if they come in with more patterns I will be purchasing another on if its in something I like. would be nice to have this in symphony in hue.

Fell in love with this bag as soon as I saw it and purchased it on release day. I got it in the Citron because of the taupe background which is a nice change. The width of the bag is larger than the 12" as stated, plenty of room and even though I stuff it, not too heavy and comfortable on the shoulder. I have purchased a number of Vera bags over the years and I'm sure this will become one of my favorites.
