Mini Loft Duffel
This is a terrific purse! Lots of pockets, light, and can you believe it, MACHINE WASHABLE!!! It holds a lot. The trim does not feel like plastic. It really feels more like leather. I just bought my second one. Count on my purchasing a few more!!!

Love this Duffel!
I was hesitant to purchase this bag because I am a huge fan of Vera Bradley cross body styles but I do like to purchase something "special" also and the faux leather trim and simple duffel styling really caught my eye. I have the Barbara Frame bag (with leather trim and metal feet) which I love, so I bought the Mini Loft Duffel in La Neon Rose and absolutely LOVE it! It has a sturdy bottom and metal feet and the two front hidden slip pockets have a magnetic closure for safety. There is an additional hidden slip in pocket on the back, perfect for my iPhone. Inside are ample slip in pockets and a zippered pocket just as you'd expect from Vera Bradley. I do wish it had some sort of detachable strap (like Barbara) because I am not accustomed to carrying a hand held bag. For those of you that like a hand held, structured bag, the Mini Loft Duffel would be a perfect purchase.

I received this bag as a Christmas gift in Bittersweet. It is my new favorite bag for work. I love it and the colors are gorgeous. I usually carry crossbody style bags because I have children and need my hands free, but this one with the black leatherish trim looks so much more professional as a bag for work. I love that the bottom panel has metal feet! What a nice touch that I often complain about my other bags not having. I easily fit a wallet, keys, phone, kleenex, chapstick (plus various small purse items), and a kindle fire, with room to spare!

I love this style. I was a Caroline fan and this bag is a suitable replacement. Very roomy, holds a lot. Canterbury Magenta is a nice neutral print. Ample little pockets on the outside.

Love Canterbury Magenta!
I love love love the canterbury magenta print. Its so pretty without looking old lady-ish. I feel like some Vera prints look old instead of fashionable. The Mini loft duffle is super cute. I love how the leather looks with the print. Pockets are bonus and like other reviewers said its a more professional looking bag. Highly recommend!

Ventian Paisely Mini Loft Duffel
I am a very busy grandmother and I visit my grandchildren alot so I got this duffel for easy travel. The duffel is fine but I do not care for the print. I usually like the new prints and my favorite print is Canyon. Like I said the duffel is a good buy but get it in another color. Even my grandson told me it was ugly and he is only six.

This is probably my most favorite bag thus far. I bought two, which I've never done before, one in Heather and one in Cocoa Moss. This way, I have a bag for summer/spring and one for winter/fall. The mix of leatherish trim with the sturdy quilting is gorgeous and allows you to carry a professional looking bag without having to sacrifice the beautiful patterns for a basic black or other solid.
This bag is extremely roomy and allows me to carry: wallet, two zippered pouches, umbrella, assorted chapsticks and pens, keys, sunglasses, cell phone, Kindle, and iPod with room to spare. I routinely place a large water bottle inside during my walk to work and this fits too. I haven't made much use of the inside zippered pocket because I forget things are in there, but the three outside pockets are IDEAL for my keys, cell and work ID badge.
The only minor quibble I have is that pieces of the leatherish trim have flaked off since I bought it. I mention it because I thought it was going to be a problem when it first happened, but it doesn't leave visible wear and tear marks and it happens very infrequently now. It happens along the stitches, so I think it's just extra material. I highly recommend this bag to anyone who has been considering it.

I really like the look and style of this bag. I have it in bittersweet. Vibrant colors. Very roomy bag, without looking and feeling huge. I usually use Vera's backpack as a purse which is very convenient when with my kiddies, however, wanted a bag to use for work or when going out. Glad I purchased this bag.
