The Glenna is my new favorite VB purse! I love the front and back large pockets. I put my phone in the front and keys in the back. No more digging around to find those two important things! The inside has plenty of room for everything else. I love the solid black!

"Perfect Bag for Travel and Everyday"
I purchased this Classic Black "Glenna" Bag to take to Las Vegas for my daughter's wedding. This bag was worn with every outfit except my dressy wedding attire. I carried all my essentials in this bag including a bottle of water and magazine for the plane going and coming home. I always purchased the Betsy and Mandy styles and now I am a convert to this great "Glenna" style. Please make all your items in "Classic Black" and I will just keep coming back for more. Love the Classic Black quilting, love the lining and the great over the shoulder padded straps. Just plain love this bag!!!!!!

Love at First Sight
Love the black for winter and the pattern with silver hardware is very classy looking. Have already had many compliments on it. This lightweight beauty stands up on it's own and holds my big fat wallet among many, many other items...and still zips-up with plenty of room left over. The lining is beautiful and really adds to the look of this purse. Can't wait to get a matching accordion wallet. The inside zip pocket is huge, the 3 slip pockets also inside are wide and wonderful for organizing, and the 2 outside slip pockets can be filled without the purse looking bulged-out. All pockets run down to the bottom of purse. I can even fit my ipad inside and amazingly still zip it up. Finally a purse where nobody will know how much crapola I'm really carrying...except me. :)
Keep wondering what padded round handles might be like, instead of the straps. Just sayin'...

This is my favorite Vera bag to date! It holds tons of stuff(all my Vera accessories) and still looks great. I can even put my phone, keys and lipgloss in the outside pockets and they don't "pucker". The photo doesn't do it justice! I believe this one's a winner!

Perfect for girls who carry a lot...
I carry lots of things in my bag, and usually buy leather. A Leather bag is heavy by itself and once I loaded it up, it weighed a ton and hurt my shoulder. So, I thought I'd try the Glenna. I ordered it on Thursday, it arrived Saturday, and I immediately transferred all my things from the old bag into it. WOW! What a difference. Not only is it lighter, but everything fit, with room to spare, and the bag does not look bulky. Even loaded, it holds its shape and stands tall and slim. My phone fits in one front slip pocket, my keys in the back one for easy access. Inside, there are three slip pockets, one for my coupons, one for my keychain filled with store discount cards, a third for a little flashlight I carry. A zip pocket for personal things, and lots of room in the center for my stuffed wallet, cosmetic bag, snack bars, etc. I LOVE it. I chose solid black, which i like for winter, but I will be ordering the Glenna in a few prints for the spring and summer. I really like the Baroque pattern, so that will be my next purchase.

Love the size
I love the size of the bag; love the black that goes with everything. I have one complaint - the straps are so STIFF . Anyone else have that problem? Wish they were softer and more pliable. They feel like cardboard.

Best Vera Bag Ever
This is the perfect bag. I have lots of Vera bags and this one cannot be improved on. The outside pockets are great, lots of room inside, its very stylish, not heavy like leather can be, the top has a zipper to keep it safely closed. This fabric and color can be carried year round. I like that the interior fabric is a white colored background so its easy to find things. I would definitely get this purse in every pattern and color. FANTASTIC!

Lady-like and extremely roomy
I love the shape of this bag. I had to order from another source because it kept getting sold out on VB.com. If I had one criticism, it is that it is a bit larger than I wanted. I would have given it 5 stars were it just a bit smaller. That's because I prefer a slightly smaller bag for everyday uKse but it works out fine anyway. I really love it!

Great everyday bag!
I fell in love with this bag the moment I started transfering all of my "stuff" from my old bag to this one. Not only is there PLENTY of room for my thick wallet, cosmetic bag, and filofax, (not to mention the pens, checkbook and sunglasses that fit perfectly in the inner pockets, but I have been truly amazed over how much more I can pack into this bag. And I have not even mentioned the two outside compartments, which are AMAZING! Although I had almost gotten used to the constant stuggle involved in shoving my cell phone into the small outside pockets of other Vera bags--not to mention the tug of war to retrieve it before missing a call and, my all time favorite, accidentally pocket dialing someone, the outside compartments on this bag are like having an extra hipster bag by my side! Not only is there plenty of room for my phone, but I throw my keys in there, my train pass, whatever paperback I happen to be reading, small toys to distract my kids when necessary, etc.
The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because it does not quite keep its "subtly structured silhouette," as described in the bag's description on the website. When carrying the bag over my shoulder, the front and back sides of the bag (the narrow sides--not the ones with the great pockets) bulge towards the middle to bottom -- regardless of what I put (or don't put) in the main compartment -- and the bulging can get annoying over my winter coat! I suspect this happens based on the actual design of the bag, as opposed to the way I handle the bag, but I look forward to hearing other people's opinions. Regardless of the bulging, I would buy this bag again because it really is terrific!
