The Caroline Bag
This IS THEE PERFECT handbag!!!!!. I got mine the other day. This bag is the perfect size. I hope it never gets discontinued. Its so hard to find a handbag this size and the straps are perfect for us who don't like shoulder bags. But you who do it will work for you too. I am going to get my favorite patterns in this handbag. Vera you hit this one out of the ball park! GRAND SLAM..... you go girl!

Needs longer strap drop !!!!!
Who wants a wide bag up in your armpit ???? Love the bag except for this one problem. If this were a slimmer bag it might not be such a problem but a wide width bag needs to hang lower to be comfortable. I am a medium sized woman (sz 10) and find this hard to carry on my shoulder and straps don't want to stay put. Strap drop like on the Glenna is perfect and would have made this bag perfect !!

Perfect for travel!
I was looking for a handbag to use on a plane in addition to my VB black microfiber carry-on. I remembered I still had the Caroline in my wish list and thought it would be perfect. I bought it in Suzani and used it yesterday. I received many compliments in the airport. It fit my IPad, VB mirror cosmetic, kiss lock coin purse, kiss & snap wallet, VB sunglasses case, iphone and lotion. There are three pockets and a zipper pocket inside to hold smaller items. There is also an outer pocket to carry my boarding pass for easy access. The Caroline is perfect for travel!

I received this purse in English Rose for Christmas and was pleasantly surprised by what I could fit in it. I am a huge reader and my Kindle and Nook easily fit in there with no problem with plenty of room for other things.

I am truly in love with the Caroline!!! It is the perfect shape - both classy and functional and is much roomier than it looks. I love the large front pocket!!! I bought the Suzani and it is beautiful!!! I bought this as a Vera Bradley 30th Anniversary special at your retail shop. I am a newcomer to the Vera Bradley lovers but anxiously await your next new patterns!!!!!

Gorgeous bag and great on plane!
My husband and I travel frequently and I was looking for a small carry-on that wasn't heavy and would fit under a plane seat. I previously tried and returned the weekender bag. It was too big, clumsy and unstructured. This bag is just perfect, big enough for everyhing I normally carry in my purse plus the things I won't take a chance on packing in my check-in luggage: my medications, jewelry and make-up. There's also plenty of room for my beautiful VB umbrella, Kindle Keyboard which actually fits perfectly in the front pocket, phone, passport, and a snack, with room to spare. The bag is quite structured, so that it will look great even if it's only half filled. And because it's lightweight, I have no problem schlepping it around the airport. I can see that if you put something VERY heavy in the handbag, it might pouch a little at the bottom. I solved this potential problem by cutting-to-fit a stiff compressed piece of cardboard that fits perfectly on the bottom. I'm not sure that this was even necessary, as I said, the bag is quite structured and with a very pretty shape. The VB folks did a great job on designing this one. I just love it!!!

Just the bag I was wishing for!
I have carried Vera Bradley bags for several years and I think my new Caroline may be my favorite. It is very light, but easily holds more than other bags with a larger silhouette. This bag solves all the problems I found with the Squared Away style – Caroline has no wasted space and doesn’t collapse like a fallen soufflé when full. There is no removable bottom because the entire bag is constructed with light-weight interfacing that allows Caroline to hold it shape empty or full.

This is a great bag. I think of it as a younger version of the 100 handbag. I tend to see older ladies carrying that one and I always hesitated buying it because of that. Thank you for coming up with the Caroline so I can have the style I wanted without feeling like my mother:) I love that it doesn't have a hard base. I never buy a purse with a hard base they are so uncomfortable to carry. Great Job with this one Vera! Thanks!
