I love the black color,& size is great too but hate the hard strap
wish it was like all of my other Vera Bradley bags,Maybe they could change that some day.Not really using the bag because of the shoulder

Best Bag yet!
I was getting tired of all the prints and colors so tried this plain black bag for winter. I worried that it might pick up all the lint and show white spots etc. but after carrying it for several months now, it is still like new. The fabric is fantastic. I know there were complaints about the "firm" strap, but I like it. It is easy to grab and doesn't flop or fold. Great bag!

My new favorite purse
This is my new favorite purse. The pros are: Just the right size, not too heavy, not too big and bulky, and a nice quilted solid color.
For the cons, I wish the buckles on the side were rounded as with the other Clare's. I have a tendency to scratch my car's interior when placing and picking up from the floorboard.
Also, I thought that there wouldn't be enough interior pockets but the pocket in the front more than makes up for the lack of zippered pocket on the inside.
Another review mentioned they didn't like the straps because they weren't quilted. I initially thought they were bulky until I bought a floral type Clare then decided I kind of like the black Clare's strap stiffness versus the quilted ones. The quilted ones kind of look like they need an ironing as there seems to be little to no quilted material in them.
I gave this one a five star rating even though it has one con (buckles) because it is such a great purse.

I love this bag! It is lightweight and roomy. The inside pockets are great for your phone and the outside pockets are perfect for keys. The strap isn't quilted, but I don't find that to be a problem. This is a great looking bag and perfect for everyday use. It goes with everything and I love changing wallets as they all match the solid black. This bag is a winner!

Love this Clare!!!
I LOVE Vera and have been carrying larger Vera Bags for a while. So I decided to downsize a bit, and I discovered the Clare! Love it, it holds my Euro Wallet, cell phone, Kindle Fire in the case, and so much more with room to spare. All in a small package. I LOVE this microfiber version, I like carrying the patterned bags in spring and summer, but when this one came out in winter, I was in love. It is just like the original Clare, but with the microfiber material. All the same pockets and sizing, just in beautiful black. And I love that the interior is a lighter color so you can see inside easily. So happy with this one!!!

Strap Not Quilted
Somewhat disappointed in two things with this bag. The strap is made out of different fabric (not quilted) from the bag, and it is very stiff. No zipper compartment inside or outside of the bag. I much prefer my On The Go bags.
