Perfect bag for a mom!
I am completely in love with this bag! When my son was born I had the diaper bag and loved the look and functionality of it. As he got a little bit older, I still needed a bag that would hold a lot of stuff, but not necessarily a diaper bag. My husband purchased this bag for me and it is exactly what I was looking for! It is so roomy without being huge. It can hold my wallet, keys, phone, chapstick, etc for me, plus a small package of baby wipes, a few diapers, a sippy cup, and a small toy or two. This is the PERFECT every day bag for a mom of a toddler or for a woman that just likes to keep lots of "just in case" stuff with her! Buy this bag!!

My favorite bag,
I use this bag everyday for work and it holds my wristlet, checkbook, cell phone, iPad,makeup bag , and work folders without being too bulky. I have the large hipster, but with my iPad, there wasn't enough room for anything else. I have English rose and am now looking for a spring color.

Great All-Purpose Tote
I have several Vera Bradley bags for specific purposes: work, travel, and organizing my purse. This tote is just the right size for everything else. I needed a "small-ish" tote for classes I'm taking. I say "small-ish" because, while this Tote is very roomy, it is smaller than the large Get Carried Away and Vera totesI use for work. I love the interior pockets. They come in handy when I want to carry my wallet, keys and phone without carrying my purse. The straps are just the right length for carrying over my shoulder or in my hand. I love the quilted fabric. It makes the bags sturdy without being stiff. I'm becoming a real collector of Vera Bradley bags because they work for the purposes in my life.

Great "everything" tote
It's functional and basic. Fits everything I need and a little more. I use it for school, it fits a couple notebooks and a 1.5 inch binder. It also works great when my three year old is in my company. Can bring snacks, kid stuff, etc. as well as everything I use too. I carry a small cosmetics bag, wristlet, journal, food, umbrella, and anything else I would need. The small pockets are great for organizing those little things such as chapstick, pens, phone, and sunglasses. I like that it just has a toggle closure, it's easier access when you've got kids circling your body like baby hawks for a snack. ;) Overall, I love the bag!

Great bag! Perfect for about anything!
I bought this in Island Blooms and I love it! I put my knitting things in there and it can hold up to 5 yarn balls (4 being small and another being large), 2 pairs of needles, and any other little miscellaneous things! It's exactly what I was looking for and I am super pleased with this product!

My Everyday "Go To" work bag
I work as an RN in a hospital, and this is the perfect bag to carry to work. It holds my clipboard, stethoscope, pens, highlighters, bandage scissors, a small wristlet that holds feminine products, and a water bottle. I have it in several prints, dating back to Bali Blue, Cupcakes Pink, and most recently the Baroque print. It's lightweight and yet holds all the essentials. I switch them out for a change in color, and use them as a car tote when I'm shopping.. I can just grab my wristlet (smartphone wristlet) out of the tote and run into the store. It's a great tote for everyday use.

Not a fan
I bought this tote thinking that it would work well as a purse. However, the straps do not seem to be long enough. The bag always falls off my shoulders - which I find extremely annoying. If the straps were longer I would rate it higher. It is a very deep tote, but not to the point where things get lost. It also has several really nice pockets on the inside. Although there is not a zipper there is a clasp. I would say it is medium sized - not a big purse, but not small. I can fit my medium sized cosmetic bag, wallet, phone, planner, i-pod, and my perfume and lotion in it quite nicely.

i got this tote almost 8 years ago in medallion and it has seen me through thick and thin. i've used it for everything - to carry my laptop and books to class, to bring an extra change of clothes to work, to going to the beach and weekend trips, etc. etc. etc.. i honestly wasn't a vera fan before i bought this tote; it was merely available and convenient in my college bookstore. i am from indiana though and do love that vera is from indiana too. plus, after almost 8 years of continuous use it's safe to say she's now won me over. however, it's probably about time for me to finally replace it as the straps are starting to wear out (not a defect of the product, merely from heavy use), but i'm so attached to my pattern. i think i may go with sun valley for my replacement.
