Mini Loft Duffel
Chic, Practical Handbag
I bought this bag in La Neon Rose, and it is one of my favorite VB bags. I have problems with my neck, so I cannot use shoulder bags (doctors orders). Thus, I am always on the lookout for a nice handbag that is practical, looks good, and travels well. The Mini Loft Duffel fits all the requirements, especially with the black trim, which raises the chic level imo. I wear a lot of green, in different shades, so I can take this bag as a travel purse. There are so many shades of green, it goes with all my sweater sets, plus my black travel slacks. The bag is a large enough purse to hold all the daily essentials, plus a small bottle of water, a book, maps, tickets, passport, meds, whatever. Plenty of pockets to organise, and three outside pockets for items you need to access fast (like TSA cards at the airport).
VB used to have a version of this bag in black microfiber that I delayed buying until it was no longer available. Learning from that mistake, I snapped up this bag in Neon Rose the second it went on sale. Now I have my eye on this bag in Citron. I am a sucker for green, what can I say?
The only reason for 4 stars is that I wish the 2 front magnet pockets were just 1 longer magnet pocket. Then I could fit my plane/train tickets more easily outside the bag and still be secure. The 2 smaller pockets are nice, but not as flexible, use-wise. I really like that it is a handbag, with shorter handles. The handles on the original black microfiber bag were too long.

Love this bag!
I have been checking out this cute little handbag for quite a while and finally picked mine up in Citron! I love how cute the bag is and how much room it has! I can fit my wallet, keys, lipstick, lip gloss, compact, hand sanatizer and everything into this bag with room to spare plus there are outside pockets! Stylish and fits a lot of necessities, what more could you ask for!

I love how professional this bag is! I love many of the bags Vera Bradley has to offer but the cloth handles look more casual, so this is a bag I would not mind bringing to my job or an interview. This bag is big enough to be useful but not overpowering. It is made well too! Glad to add this bag to my collection of Vera Bradley!
