sent from heaven
This bag is actually my best friend. No joke. It is the single most useful thing since the medium cosmetic.
First off- the size. THIS IS NOT A BOOK BAG! If that is what you are looking for, do NOT get this. But for a purse backpack, this is PERFECT! It fits a surprising amount. For example, at theater conferences, it holds
1. Dance clothes (yoga pants, tee shirt, ballet flats)
2. full sized water bottle
3. iPhone, charger, and buttery pack
4. several granola bars
5. lots of random purseish things (lipstick, lotion, small notebook, etc)
When in use as a ballet bag, it holds
1. pointe shoes
3. hair stuff
5. leotard and tights
It also fits a macbook air (11 inch) in the main pocket but does not have any padding, so I wrap mine in a pair of PJ pants or something before tossing it in.
quality- I've had mine for a year and it looks brand new. I've washed it twice and it doesn't show it all.
Other- it is easy to carry. VERY easy to carry, actually. overall, just... perfect. Love it.

Own one for every season!
I think customers need to know that this is a backpack "purse". Although the dimensions are given, it is not as big as the typical student backpack. With that said, it is the perfect size for a "workhorse" purse. It is loaded with compartments for everything and the best part is you can be hands free when you need to be. I love this style and own several for the different seasons. They hold up so well and even wash well too!

Great for Being out and about
Like the title says it is great for those who are out and about but don’t want a purse on their shoulder and need more than just a wristlet. It is too small for a school bag. My books notebook, and binders did not fit. However it was just right for a day at the park, zoo, walking around DC, a national park and best of all carry on for a train or airplane. I live a very active life and this LITTLE book bag goes safely (with adorable Vera style) where the traditional purse fails.
I gave it 5 stars because it is great for what it is, a backpack purse in my opinion. I can fit a Vera wallet, a water bottle, Vera sunglasses case, book, cosmetic bag (always have to look nice right ladies?) and a few other small items inside. The outside side pocket is too small for a water bottle I would suggest in the future they change that to fit one. So I put chapstick in there. The inside pockets are great to hold my phone and whatever else. I personally don’t have an Ipad so I use that to hold pamphlets, ticket, brochures for quick access, or my journal.
When you get this dont be stunned by the size it is small. However, if you don't plan on using it for school, or packing the kitchen sink then this product will work great for you!
