Hotsy Totsy Hobo
HOLY MOLY I HOPE VB EXPANDS THE FRILL COLLECTION--IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yep, i LOVE this bag!!!! I got it in Folkloric and it's suuuuper cute. Plus as a fan of smaller bags, it's not too large but not too tiny either, it can certainly hold plenty. And yes ladies, this is a part of the FRILL collection, so it's going to be made out of VINYL (or whatever that shiny, plastic-y stuff's called), NOT cloth!!! So be aware of that. At any rate, I love VB's cloth bags, but I also do love the Frill Collection. The bag is adorable and I love sitting it at my desk at the office, ha. The front asymmetrical line is actually a pocket that conveniently holds my cell, work badge, and keys. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone!
With all of my enthusiasm, why the four stars, you ask?
WELL, since it is made out of vinyl/that plastic-y stuff, the bag, I feel, is fragile and from what I've read from other reviews of Frill products, they tend to wear (as in age) easily. Therefore, I take extra precautions in making sure I don't harm the bag too much, that way its print and color can last longer. I set it down carefully, wear it carefully, and even have it sit instead of hang whenever I'm not using it. The extra precautions are kind of burdensome, thus the -1 star.... but the bag is so freakin' cute and satisfying to me that it definitely deserves 4 stars. Buy it if you don't mind the outer plastic shell, but treat it carefully if you get it!

Perfect & Fun Hobo!!
I was sceptical at first about getting anything other than the signature cotton Vera Bags but am SOOO pleased with this Hobo. I got it in Boysenberry and couldn't be happier!! It is adorable and so fun to carry! I love the concealed outside slip pocket and the single shoulder strap, stays on your shoulder very easy. Perfect size, not too big but plenty of room for all of my must-haves and wide enough to stand up when you put it down. You will not be disappointed!!

I received this bag in folkloric with the matching clutch. I had only seen it online and had never seen the Frill Line in stores, so I didn't know what to expect regarding the material. Well, when I received this in the mail, I couldn't stop smiling! It was better than expected! The coated cotton is soft and water resistant which I love! It's a good size and fits comfortably and close to the body under your arm. The zippered top makes you feel more secure so things will not fall out when you travel. The 3 inch base means that it is wide enough and can sit upright on its own too. Yay! Finally, the easy access on the outside fits my phone, keys, lipgloss or anything I need for quick access. The two inside slip pockets and additional zippered pouch gives you added organization. I love all Vera Bradley, but this Frill Line is just so cute and unique! It's perfect for girlie girls of ALL ages!! I just placed an order for more Frill for me and for gifts too. The VB website makes it easy to find all the Frill I need to my hearts content:)

Love at First Sight
The minute I saw this bag I knew I had to have it. I bought it in Boysenberry. The frill is so great and won't get dirty like the cloth bags that I have. I have over a dozen Vera Bags in all sizes and prints from over the years. We went into the store to look around being we were in the mall in San Francisco and there it was.

I bought this bag online and couldn't wait to receive it. I was sorely disappointed to find out it was vinyl covered! I returned it immediately and went to my favorite Hallmark store and purchased my old stand-by, the Little Betsy, in the same bosenberry pattern.

I just bought this purse today in Boysenberry to take on my honeymoon in July. I love how it fits perfectly under my arm without slipping, and how it is so spacious without being huge. This is one of my favorite Vera Bradley pieces yet!

My husband took me to the store that sells Vera to pick out my Valentine's gift. I mentioned I wanted a new zip around wallet in the folkloric print. Well I fell in love with this bag so he bought it for me too. This bag seems small but fits everything I need. My new zip around wallet, small cosmetic bag, sunglasses, keys etc. It has a zip pocket on the inside for chapstick and other small things. The other side has two slip pockets for your cell phone and other things you want quick access to. There is a small slip pocket in the front of the bag perfect for shopping lists and coupons. The strap length is a great, fits over lightweight jackets. I got the Folkloric and the flower print makes me smile when I look at it. It keeps me thinking spring is going to come. My friend wants my cute flower bag in a shirt. I guess the flowers make her happy too.

Very Hotsy Totsy
This bag is great. My husband got it for me as an early V-day present. It is absolutely the cutest thing. I love the front hidden pocket is actually very roomy and sits right under your arm. The strap is the perfect length. Would recommend this bag to anyone.

Love the FRILL
I am in love with this new bag! I own two Morgan bags and decided I needed something new! I love this new bag because it has a large front pocket that holds my keys and my cell( the Morgan bag also has 2 front pockets) which is an added bonus! The inside is perfect size for my wallet, camera and checkbook along with a few other things. Its perfect size for anyone! Definitely worth every penny! Love it!
