Large Colorblock Tote
Best Beach/Picnic Bag Ever!!!
I recently used this bag for the pool. It held 3 beach towels, 2 shirts, 2 bags of chips, a medium sized container of fruit, a baseball cap, 2 water bottles in the outside pocket (32 oz and 20 oz), 3 sunscreen bottles in the other outside pocket, 2 cell phones, 2 wallets, and three sets of keys. There was still room for more! Amazing! I got 2 bags for myself and purchased 5 more as Christmas gifts.

I bought this tote to use for school... I'm a teacher. It is great for carrying all my stuff.
We also just went on a trip. I had my carry on luggage and this tote. .. which held a ton (my purse included) I wasn't sure if it would be too big as a personal item, so I lifted up the bottom panel, making it more collapsible. I was never questioned about its size by the airline, and I probably didn't need to lift the bottom panel, but I wanted to make sure it fit within the personal item specs. It was Perfect... I recommend this to all. Plus the personalization is a really nice touch.

My New Teacher Bag!!
I just received the Large Colorblock Tote in Julip Tulip. It is the perfect size for all of the items I will be transporting to and from work this Fall. As a teacher I need a pretty large, yet durable bag. This one is absolutely perfect. Not only is this tote perfect in size, it's also quite fashionable!!! The monogramming adds the cutest touch to my tote as well! I won't actually use the bag until the Fall, so it is with high hopes that it's durability will be favorable.

I love this bag! But I have a question, does anyone know if this bag can be used as a carry on, on a plane? I would love to take it on a trip that is coming up.

Vera is my Happy Place
This tote is useful and cheerful, there are so many uses for it due to the size and ease of use. I picked it up as a sale price meerely by accident as i thought i ordered it a few days before the sale happened to be. Point is even at the reg price it is a wonderful cheerful bag. I chose the Flower Shower pattern because it literally makes me Happy! I am relatively new to Vera (less than 2 years) and i am not necesarily a pattern person, however i do enjoy the "fun" i feel when i use them. Well Made and will last for a long time.

Great Tote for any occation
First I want to say that the picture here on-line does not do this bag justice. I don't think I would have bought it if I had just seen it here. I was in the store today and saw it, and knew that it was perfect. I like to have a tote that I can put my handbag, lunch, umbrella, book, sweater, and anything else I might need for the day. This bag holds it all. I got it in Petal Paisley, although I love the Flower Shower pattern, I thought this would be better for year round...the Flower Showeris soo cute, but seems very summery. I also love the pockets on the outside. I can slip my sunglasses in one and my cell phone in the other, and I know where they are. There is even a zippered pocket on the inside! I love this tote!

Perfect for the Beach!
Today was our first beach day of the season and this bag was great! We stuffed four towels in it, and our sunscreen. After I took the towels out, we tossed our clothes in the bag so they didn't get sandy. I love the color (we have the Clementine) and the size. The best part is the material. It's easy to dust the sand off before tossing it in the car, and the bag doesn't tip over easily, and keeps its shape, which is great at the beach.
I told my mom I want to buy a couple more, and she couldn't figure out why, because one bag was perfect for three of us. I told her I just love it so much I want more!

Holds everything I need and looks great!
I have this bag in Midnight Blues and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! The colorblock pattern is very attractive and the design is quite stylish. I have several other Vera totes, but nothing seemed to hold everything I carry back and forth to work everyday. I can put my (full) Mandy handbag inside, along with my lunch bag, water bottle, and some books and papers. The shoulder straps are a good length, and the large side pockets and internal zipper pocket are very convenient!

Just got this one in Clementine and can't wait to use it at the beach this summer! It's definitely big enough for towels, snacks, sunscreen, and anything else we may need.... plus it's just HAPPY!

great for everything
I am a full time nursing student, a mother of 2 year old tornado. I used to carry on any given day around three bags, I can get by with just this bag on most days. I got the Large color-block tote in sun valley in december of 2013, I use this bag as either a diaper bag for long days away from home or book bag for school. I can fit my computer, a note book two large text books a binder, and my winter coat in this bag.( without the coat in the bag i would be able to fit at least 2 more books but that would be way too heavy for a shoulder bag) The outside pockets are great for a planner and some other small student essentials and the contents of my purse. As a diaper bag the things that i can fit in this are endless. The outside pockets are perfect for diapers on one side and wipes on the other making both quickly available, and we fill the inside with spare clothes toys and other essentials. On a light day I can fit all the essentials and both of our winter coats The only thing about using it as a diaper bag is that id does not fit in the basket of our city mini stroller, but that is a stroller problem not a bag problem. We have also used this bag to take to the indoor pool and fit in three swim suits and three beach towels. I just order the stay cooler in sun valley as well and I am sure that it will fit inside this bag along with many other things without a problem.
