Two for One Shoulder Bag
Best waterproof bag I own!
This is the only waterproof bag I own and I really don't want to buy anything else. But sadly, just like everyone else, the straps that hold the "Vera Bradley" rings on them started breaking on me the other day, after owning the bag for a year and using it for maybe 3 months total out of that year... So creativity conquered my urge to stop using this bag, and I completely cut both the straps off, poked a hole through the each of the purse's sides, and used key rings to reattached the Vera Bradley rings... Good as new! :) I recommend this bag, and my quick fix, to everyone in need of an amazing waterproof bag that holds all your essentials! I own the turn-n-lock wallet and it fits perfectly with room to spare!

bad strap connection
MY daughter wanted a crossbody in the vinyl collection for winter. I bought her this one in the viva la vera print. Very roomy, but after a month of everyday use she started to notice the strap connection to the purse,the one that holds the rings to connect the arm strap were stretching out. After 3 months they were ready to break. We had to retire the bag for fear it would snap when we were out somewhere. I should have read the prior reviews! Love the concept, needs a better execution with the srtap attachments.

I bought this bag in DecoDaisy - not for the daisy print but the hounds-tooth...LOVE!
Received in May and held onto it (did not use) until winter to go with my Red wool jacket and hounds-tooth scarf...have been using it all the time since September and now in January I have just started to notice the tearing the other reviewer mentioned. It is definitely an expected wear spot but makes me sad :( Am now contemplating buying another for next winter or do I just hope...pray...that another fabulous print comes out...EKK!

Straps are weak but worth it!
I love the purse but the straps have proven to be weak and will fall off any day now. Underneath where the ring is attached to the purse is the problem area. I have gotten a few months wear out of it and so many compliments on the purse itself so it has been worth the money that I paid for it. I pack my purses heavy so I may very well be the cause. I love my Vera's!!! I have carried nothing but Vera for 6 years now and I'm convinced that I will never own anything else again!

Great Purse, Very Spacious, Perfect in Every Way!
You couldn't ask for a better purse! I bought it in English Meadow and it's matching wallet, for the spring/summer season. And it is fantastic. The magnetic closure is very strong, and won't come under without you willing it to. The shape is very convenient, and the size is ideal. It gives the look of a petite bag, but can fit so much. Water bottles, and snacks can easily slip into it with out weighing it down. And the straps seem very well sewn and strong.
