I do not know how well this will hold up long-term, but I've carried it daily for over a month, and it still looks great. I bought it for a trip, and just kept carrying it at home because I like it so much. I wish it had more pockets (esp an interior zip), but otherwise, I love this bag. I had the black hipster and on the go, and didn't like the stiff strap or the heaviness of the bag. This strap is much more comfortable, and it really is very light to carry. I weighed it and it's about 7 oz. It's hard to find something so light in a solid color with this much size (the black on the go weighs almost twice as much).
I am ordering a second one for back up, but I hope Vera adds a pocket or two and never discontinues this great bag!

Versatile, weather friendly, roomy bag
Treated myself to the Olivia puffy cross body for my bday. Took a chance and broke out of my comfort zone and decided to try the puffy fabric. I was not disappointed ! The Olivia fabric was vibrant in color, the inside was a bright fuschia color. I was surprised at how much this bag holds: fits my wallet, make up bag which is the small vb cosmetic bag, room for two pairs glasses. And room left to stash a small bag of snacks. The strap can also be easily adjusted to a shoulder strap. There's also a small zippered front pocket which securely holds a cell phone or keys. This bag handled the rain with no problem, and dried right away. Hoping they'll make the puffy in more colors.

Love the bag, but poorly constructed
I have had this bag for a few weeks and notice that flimsy stitching at the ends of the zipper has come out leaving the zipper useless. I'm very disappointed because I was enjoying using this very practical and attractive bag.

Can't Believe How Much I Love This Purse!
I admit -- I thought the concept was silly -- but then on one rainy night, I went to a Vera Bradley Store and realized how nice it would be to have a purse that I could carry through all types of weather. This purse is incredibly versatile and unbelievably lightweight. It's great for when you have to run a lot of errands in the rain. It dries quickly too.
