On the Go
Preferred the former "on the go" bag
I just starting using my new style "on the go" handbag. I like the inside zip pocket and that the middle inside slip pocket is a little wider. BUT the zipper pocket on the outside has been shortened because of the side seams on the end of the bag. I was able to carry my pocket calendar but now it barely fits and is a struggle to remove. (Yes, I still carry a handwritten pocket calendar!) :-) The side pockets also seem shorter. I put my reading glasses in one of them and the glasses don't completely fit in there and I'm concerned they'll fall out. I'd put my keys in the other pocket and now the keys don't fit there. I much preferred the older style.

Purchased for the Pockets!
I usually sew my own purses, but wanted something with a zipper, an adjustable strap and a little more style, so I chose this bag as my first VB purchase. I love the outside pockets and the two zippered pockets.
I keep my (tiny) phone in one of the outside pockets and a small bottle of hand sanitizer in the other pocket. My keys, iPod and headphones fit in the outside zipper compartment with room to spare. There are three quilted slip pockets in the inside and one zippered pocket on the opposite side. Each pocket is slightly wider than a pack of travel tissues. In the main compartment I can fit my 4.5" wallet, 5.5" pouch for nail clippers, etc., bottle of Tylenol and my 7" camera case. There is still room for my 8.5" journal and a few other small items or pouches. The top of the bag does dip a bit in the middle when it is full. I purchased it for the cross-body option, but find that I usually just use it as a shoulder bag. This bag looks great in Baroque and I'm enjoying it more and more as I use it.

Great for "On the Go"
My bag is Paisley Meets Plaid", I LOVE it! It is a great size. Has plenty of room for everything I need to carry on a daily basis. It is light weight and very pretty. I would like to see a small zipper compartment on the front of the bag, this would be great for keys, I.D., or anything you need quick, but don't want to loose. The slide pockets on the ends are nice for keys or glasses, but they have fallen out if the purse falls over. Tthe interior is great, plenty of slip pockets and a big zipper pocket for plenty of organization. The cross body is so convenient when shopping or running errands. All in all a well organized bag and beautiful colors.
