Petite Tote 4.6 5 24 24
Love this tote!! I bought this bag in Lola, loved it so much I have 2 more in diferent designs. Holds everything I need and more. I can even carry my Ipad mini around with me. April 18, 2014
The perfect sized bag I purchased this bag yesterday in Midnight Blues because I was wanting a summery bag but not a "suitcase" as I do not like carrying big purses. The vibrant colors in the pattern pop against the dark blue background. I loved it so much I went back and got the matching euro wallet. It is the perfect size for me as I only carry the essentials and I will use it this spring and summer along with the slightly bigger bag (I can't remember the style name) I bought in Jazzy Blooms to go with my outfits when I where black. Please consider making smaller bags for us who don not carry the large ones. I am a petite woman and the bigger bags just seem huge and like I'm carrying luggage to me. March 27, 2014
I bought this bag in Jazzy Blooms & Heather. I plan on using these bags when I don't want to feel weighted down with a big bag filled with lots of stuff. Throw in your keys, phone, small wallet, and lip gloss and you are ready to go. This bag in Jazzy Blooms looks great with casual summer outfits because it's simple and stylish but not overworked and it adds a splash of color. This bag does not have any inside pockets or a zippered compartment, but it's roomy enough to fit all of your essentials (they just won't be organized in little compartments). However, there is one fairly large outside pocket on the outside of the bag. The bag fits under your arm if you want to wear it over your shoulder. I prefer to hold the bag by the straps or to drape the straps over my arm. This is a fun little tote. March 19, 2014
Perfect size for wheelchairs! Please bring back a purse this size! I am in a wheelchair, and it perfectly fits on it. Now all the purses are too big and hit the wheels. I am using Frannie, but all my stuff won't fit in it. This purse and Little Betsy were the perfect sizes for my wheelchair. I love VB and have a ton of purses and other stuff! Please consider people with disabilities when you choose styles for purses. Thank you! March 8, 2014
Best bag!!! So functional! Fits my ipad mini and matching ribbon coin purse January 29, 2014
This bag is so cute! I have been looking for a small square shaped, fabric material and zipper on top tote bag for a long time. And this is the one! This bag is prefect for my petite frame. Some Vera Bradley handbags have really long shoulder strap that is not very proportional to my height. But this bag is perfect! The shoulder strap fit perfectly on my shoulders, not too long and not too short. I'm a light packer, so the size of this bag is just perfect for me. I do wish there is a inside pocket to keep things separated and organized. Overall, this is a great bag. And I would buy more if it comes in other patterns that I like. January 23, 2014
Great Christmas gift from my parents! I received this tote along with a matching wristlet, the quality is well worth the money paid. I love the added zipper on top. This petite tote is very useful and a perfect size; it's not largely awkward to carry around or too small where you can't fit anything. I love the patterns, it's a great product! December 26, 2013
Perfect!!!!!! I have had this tote since it came out, and as a tote lover, this little thing is perfect! It fits most everything ... Easy to take along with my purse. I got the small umbrella that matches and it fits perfect in the outside pocket! I have used this little tote more than any of my larger totes, and the price fits for gifts too!!! August 20, 2013
Well ... I just have a few things to say I was looking for a small bag to carry on my arm ( not shoulder) to carry books, p.e. clothes, and a pair of tennis shoes occasionally. You see I go to school and need an extra bag besides my purse to carry minor things. I didn't want a big bag but not a, well, 'petite" one. I understand petite means small, but this bag is VERY small. It just looks really awkward on me # and I'm short #. I had to return and was really disappointed . But if you like small bags this ones for you :) August 9, 2013
Been Waiting for This I love small totes that you can dangle on your wrist when you just need a little something to carry the basics (keys, phone, wallet, glasses, maybe a comb or lipstick). This one is perfect. I got mine in Marina Paisley, so fun and bright for summer. Great to carry when running errands around the neighborhood, taking a stroll or just going to sit under a tree and read. (My e-reader fits perfectly). Though an inside pocket would not be a bad thing, the outside pocket is quite roomy, fits both keys and phone. Besides, you don't want to cram this bag with too much stuff -- that would destroy its cuteness! July 2, 2013
