Love the Little Mandy
Little Mandy is the perfect bag for me. So much so I just ordered my second one. It holds my cell phone , business cards and sunglasses in one of the six interior pockets. Additionally it fits a VB makeup bag and VB wallet along with my car keys too. I do not use the outside pocket for anything of value.
The bag is beautifully made and I have had no problems with the zipper..

I have 6 Vera Bradley handbags/totes and was very dissappointed with the size of the Little Mandy when it arrived yesterday. Especially unhappy with the exterior pocket which is way too small. The pocket should be much larger and there should be two of them, one on each side, and one of those should have a zipper or snap close.

This is my favorite Vera Bradley handbag. When a new pattern comes out that I like I always buy it in the Little Mandy style first:) The Mandy is too big where this size is perfect. I get lots of compliments on it when I am out. For a smaller bag it holds a lot. The front pocket holds my cell phone tightly but makes it easy to access which I LOVE. Inside the 6 pockets add instant organization. It holds more than you would think as well in the center section. I would highly recommend this bag. Also, Vera please consider NOT retiring it. Thank you.

Best purse ever!!!
I have had the little mandy for many years now and have bought a new little mandy every single time a new round of patterns come out! The mandy I thought was a little too big for what I needed, but the little mandy is the perfect size! It may seem like it is just a bit too small just by looking at it, but believe me, with all the pockets you can really stuff the purse with everything a girl could need! I am a little disappointed right now that the style is not currently available in blue buoy. I hope this is just temporary because I really do love this bag and would recommend it everyone especially to people who are looking to downsize their purses!

Little Mandy vs. Reg. Mandy
I have both now. I always thought my Big Mandy was too big for my needs. I got little Mandy and it's JUST right. I was trying to downsize and still use this for everything and it works great. Love all the individual pockets.
One wish...that the front pocket was a bit deeper, like to put my keys there, but am afraid they would fall out.

I wanted to love this bag
I wanted to love this bag, I really did. I have 2 Little Betsy bags, which I love. Sadly Little Betsy was redesigned and is now Little Mandy. I do not care for the zipper installation. Instead of the zipper running across the very top of the bag, now it is sewn to fabric extensions. It is very difficult to start the zipper when closing.
The pocket on the front of the bag is a bit shorter than on Little Betsy. I do not think is it tall enough to safely hold an iPhone.
The inside pockets have been re-sized and the larger pockets are at the sides of the purse and are hard to put things into. I much preferred the Little Mandy pocket design with the large packets in the center.
The only thing I liked about this bag is the pattern--Summer Cottage.
I returned the bag. I hope there will be consideration in returning to putting the zipper back on time for the next re-design.

I bought this in the Baroque pattern. It's a nice small to medium size bag with slip pockets along both inside walls. Fits my Vera Bradley strap cell phone wallet and other many other things. Great for every day! I also just bought another very expensive leather designer brand handbag recently, and prefer this one! ( Wish Vera Bradley would come out with more prints like the Baroque for the ladies who aren't into the brightly colored prints..hint, hint.)

Favorite Bag of All
I guess you could say The Little Mandy is my favorite bag. I have it in 6 colors. It is not too oversized, but big enough for all my essentials. The six pockets inside keep all my things easy to locate. I use the outside pocket for my cell phone. There, it is easy too grab quickly if I get a call.
I would like it in a solid black.

Great for every day use!
Little Mandy was my first VB purchase. What can I say, but I love it! The best part is that LM stays on my shoulder, even when I am riding my bike! The outer pocket is great for my cell phone and the six inner pockets make organization easy. The overall quality is amazing as the zipper and fabric are durable. My next purchase is Mandy!

Love the Little Mandy
I have been a Vera Bradley customer since 1999. The Little Mandy is by far my most favorite handbag of all time! I LOVE it!! The 6 pockets inside keep all your essentials organized and tucked right where you need them where they can be seen by looking into the bag (no more searching around for an item in need). The slip pocket in the front of the bag is great for easy access items, such as keys. It is so roomy inside and when packed full of my things it still doesn't appear stuffed! I purchased mine in Jazzy Blooms and the print is absolutely beautiful!
