Two Way Tote
Please tweak this and bring it back!
I LOVE this bag! The shape is so attractive and perfect size for daily use for me. I currently have it in 2 colors and plan to get more.
Things to know:
1. There is only about 9"H of usable space in the middle of the bag because of the snap.
2. It can fit a good bit but if the snap doesnt close it can look awkward when carried on the shoulder or crossbody.
3. No outside pockets
That being said, I love the style and functionality of this bag. I typically carry it by hand or in the crook of my arm but love having the long strap to wear on my shoulder or crossbody. The only thing I would change is to add a pocket to the outside. Oh and make the magnetic closure a tad stronger. If they fixed those 2 things I would buy it in a dozen colors!!! Maybe not, but definitely 6-8!

My Favorite Tote - Please Don't Discontinue
This is a great tote - roomy and very comfortable. I love the short straps when I don't want to wear it crossbody or over my shoulder, but like having a choice because I wear it different ways. I saw a comment about receiving this tote with strings hanging off of it and the magnetic closure did not work. I think you just received a defective tote that someone did not properly inspect. I have two of these now and they are perfect. In fact, never received a bag from Vera Bradley that was not in perfect shape. Please, Please, do not discontinue this tote, it has lots of fans. Would love to have it in the new winter colors. Tweek it a little if you feel it is not living up to it's potential, but do not discontinue it altogether.

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!
