Large Resort Tote
I decided to get this at the outlet, due to the very good price there - I am now using it as a market tote when I got to Costco or the supermarkets. The wide opening makes it easy for me to throw my items in there; and the long handle makes it easy for me to carry my groceries up the stairs. The bag can take a heavy load, which I am very happy to find out (I took a risk and it paid off). Can it be a little bigger? Depends on what you need to use it for - for groceries, it is a great size, otherwise the load gets to be too heavy. If you need it for a whole family at the beach .... yes, it will be too small. But otherwise I like it a lot. Although I can't throw it in the washing machine like I do with my other VB bags, you can just wipe it down, easy enough.

Bigger Please! With Pockets!
This is a great bag, just didn't work for my needs. I was looking for a large waterproof tote for trips to the pool with the kids. Would love to see this in a larger size that could hold 4 beach towels and few inside pockets for little things (like pool passes, cash, snacks, etc.) that need to be secure. C'mon Vera Bradley, please make my dream pool bag!!!

Really love this tote!
Originally I bought this tote for the beach, but it's so pretty, I hate to use it for that! I did take it to the beach a couple of times and it was great, but then I decided just to use it as a regular tote. I put my purse in it, and whatever else I want with me for the day or even next few days, this way when I get out of the car to do my errands, I only grab my purse. I also love that I can see through the one side of the bag - it makes it so easy to find what I'm looking for! Instead of digging through the bag, I just peek through the side and can see exactly what's there and find what I'm looking for. I recommend it for any need whatsoever! I've used it all summer, and it looks just like the day I bought it! It is extremely durable. If you can get your hands on one, I highly recommend it!

Where is the accessory zip bag?
Where is the accessory zip bag that came with last year's tote? in addition, there was another zip bag that matched my tote which was available for an additional charge. I find both small zip bags to be essential.
