Two Way Tote
Love this bag! The option of using the handles or strap is just perfect. Roomy but not too big. It's my favorite style. I bought it in dogwood, provincial and canyon. Please do not discontinue this one!

My favorite so far!
I have the Mailbag and the small Block Tote but this Two Way Tote has to be my favorite so far! I say so far because there are still so many other styles left to try! I'm so glad I decided to get this one in two different patterns, the Canyon and Provençal. Not having seen it in person, I was afraid it might not be big enough but it's perfect! I can get everything that fits in my Mailbag purse in this one and still get it to snap closed. I agree with an earlier review that a stronger magnetic snap would be nice but I wouldn't add pockets to the outside. I like pockets but I think this style looks better without them. I can't wait to pair the Provençal purse with my red western boots! Yee Haw! Lol

I really love this bag. It's sturdy enough, love the handles and the option of using it cross body. Please do not discontinue this style. I want to order more colors, especially some of the new ones.

Great for Moms With a Little One
I bought this tote wanting the option of using it for necessities plus my toddler's items and then taking off the straps for use when I'm out with friends. I love everything about this tote! It is just the right size for me and I think it looks so nice cross body. I have two in different patterns and am most likely going to get another at some point soon. I have received compliments on it every time I wear it. A little smaller in height than the regular tote but still fits what I need it for....big wallet, keys, phone, small cosmetic, tech case, Surface, gallon size Ziploc with several diapers, etc., and even a water bottle. Highly recommend!

I fell in love with the style and shape of this bag when it first came out and finally got it. I wanted something bigger than the hipster (which it is) and still a crossbody for the summer. The shape is still beautiful and it's a very sturdy bag, but in practice, i'm not a fan. The bag itself holds everything I would need in an everyday purse unlike the hipster and I can find everything with ease. And ah, yes the handles. I love the idea that I can grab it by the handles and go, but my goal was to get something hands-free. The handles are also bothersome since they come up so high on my waist when worn crossbody, even lifting my shirt without me knowing. Overall, the bag is a great idea but in practice its just not for me. I may keep it just for the color (Provencal) since it's school colors.

GREAT (but too heavy, especially when using strap)
I have this tote in Lime's Up, my fave color. It's a great shape and size, very versatile. I really DO like this bag... but my personal drawback is that it's too heavy for me, especially when using the strap. It digs into my shoulder even when I have the lightest weight of items inside. My age (57), recent breast surgery (12/2013), and health (fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc.) have a lot to do with this, of course, so I have to be careful what I include. But I'm still keeping this bag as it comes in handy when needing to stay the night at grandkids' or a necessary trip to another city for husband's chronic medical needs and appointments.

Two tote crossbody
Nice bag but needs some outside pockets for keys and cell phone. Bag is large enough for all my necessities and my iPad 2... Lightweight and washable. I use the crossbody strap as I have balance issues and need both arms free.
Wish I could get it in Heather too.
The lack of outside pockets is a big issue for me. It is an attractive bag.

The best of VB
I purchased multiple bags from VB, and finally I got the winner! I like hand held bags with wide opening , just enough space for necessities and some documents. Most of the totes are too big and casual for work, and most of the handbags are structured shoulder bags which don't hold file folders easily. Two way totes are just perfect style and size for work. It looks more presentable than totes, it holds a lot yet compact size. The unexpected bonus for me was the shoulder strap, which I thought I will never use, but turned out very handy for grocery shopping on the way from work. I like the fact that there is no outside pocket because this contributes to stylish appearance outside. It sits upright nicely and extra details like pleated side adds beauty to this bag. Please bring back more hand held bags like this!
