I absolutely love my Vera tote! I currently use it for work. It's big enough to carry my Vera Bradley cooler, my Vera Bradley agenda and a pair of shoes. I used to contantly misplace my desk key. Now, I keep my desk key on my Vera Bradley lanyard which conveniently clips to the pocket of my tote. The mulitiple pockets keep me organized. I constantly get compliments on my tote as it coordinates with my cooler and lanyard. It's everything I ever wanted in a tote and more!

Perfect Knitting Tote!
The Vera is the perfect bag for knitting supplies. It has lots of room and the inner pockets are great for needles and other small things you might need. I also love the length of the handles and the height of the bag. I definitely recommend it! My favorite Vera Bradley purchase :)

Vera saved my commute
I started a new job at the beginning of the year and had to start going downtown. This meant parking in a garage and walking to my office. When I started, I was given a backpack bag by my employer to carry all my work related items. At first this seemed great as I like backpacks and they are easier on your back. But I learned that with the in and out of elevators, going through a revolving door to my office, and the security turnstiles that the backpack was more trouble than it was worth. I needed a bag large enough to carry all my essentials, but one that was no so big it would be a challenge for all the above mentioned commute pains. I found the VERA in my local store and LOVED the Flower Shower pattern. This bag can comfortably hold my padfolio, iPad, laptop, and kindle (for lunch reading) in the main compartment. In the various slips I have my laptop cords, my kindle and iPad cords, pens, pencils, highlighters, Tide to-go stick, lotion and antibacterial gel with room to spare. In the front slip I have my badge and parking garage pass. I have yet to use the outer zip because I still have room on the inside. I even have enough room for the days I play sand volleyball after work to fit my change of clothes inside the bag. This thing is amazing. It is so great that I have even started just grabbing my small zip around wallet and phone out of my purse and adding it to the bag so I don't take my purse with me. Excellent bag for downtown commuting.

Great for everyday use
I absolutely LOVE my Vera bag! Anyone around me can attest to that because of how much I exclaim my love for my bag.
I'm a full time college student and it's perfect for holding my laptop, snacks, wallet, etc. I'm going on vacation soon and can't wait to bring it! I'm a highly organized individual and this bag certainly helps me to do so. :)

Mom bag Extraordinaire!!!
I am a working mom of three kids ranging in age from 9 months to 9 years. We are an EXTREMELY active family and I have to prepare for a lot...even though I do not over prepare. I also HATE carrying a diaper bag and purse, one bag must do it all! I went to my local vb distributor to get the Emily for my mom bag as my current vb is too small and saw the Vera-love at first sight!! This bag is cute and super organizable with all the pockets!! I have it packed for business with diapers, wipes, sunscreen, a makeup bag, cell phone, work and personal keys, a chapter book, wallet, baby food and snacks for everyone with room to spare! I love that I can grab it and go and know that I still have room to toss in the extras-ie whatever the hubby decides to toss in, or the kids for that matter. It is the perfect purse for a busy mom.

The perfect size tote!
I just received my Vera Tote in English Rose. It is absolutely gorgeous! It is a perfect size and I can see myself using this alot , so I better order more colors! My only issue was that the stitching along the top was not tight and the white thread was exposed in some areas. I am returning it and have re ordered the bag; I am hoping the quality of the new bag is up to standard. This is why I gave the Vera 3 stars. If it were in perfect condition it would have gotten 5 stars for sure! I will update once I receive my new bag.

I am a Vera Bradley fanatic, I have way to many of their bags. But I have a ton of smaller purse like bags and then a bunch of weekender and duffle bags. I am going into high school next year and I wanted a cute new bag to start off the year. Today when I got the bag in the pattern Heather, I noticed the color was a little darker in the picture which I liked even more. I can't to use it as a carryon for my flight to Alaska this summer and for next years high school classes. Great stitching and bright colors with many MANY MANY pockets!!! Recommend it to anybody, especially when it's on sale!

Perfect for School!
This bag is PERFECT for school! I carry 1-2 binders, 2 spirals, 1-2 folders, pencil bag, reading book, lunch in the main space. Interior pockets: water bottle, perfume, brush, wallet, calculator, with two more empty pockets available. Exterior Pockets: keys, headphones, gum, charger. With all this stuff I still have room for more things!!This bag is better than any backpack I've ever had! I use it every day in high school and if it gets dirty I just throw it in the wash. The long straps are great when I have my bulky letter jacket on and the height of the bag is awesome because it is taller than the binders so from the outside you can't see anything on the inside. If you're looking for a bag for school or work this is the perfect choice!

"Go-to Bag for Hospital Visits
My son has health issues that require visits to a children's hospital a few hours from our home. Many of these trips turn into all day or over-night visits or longer. I wanted something big enough to hold a book, tablet, phone, assorted chargers, notepad and pen, snacks, bottled water, jacket, and my purse if I got tired of carrying it too. This works out great...the compartments help keep things organized which is great for a frazzled Mom with frazzled nerves. It is comfortable to carry, big but not huge so I don't feel silly carrying it and is very pretty as well. My first but not my last Vera Bradley bag for sure.
