So I have been wanting a bag in petal paisley, and suddenly I see this new tote with the inverted pattern. The one thing that caught my eye was the strap. For some reason the regular strap used for the normal tote bag always falls off your shoulder. I read reviews and complaints about that all the time, so I guess Vera's solution was the leather-like straps. Much Much better! they stay on your shoulder and give the bag a sexy twist to the tote. Its just the right amount of space in the bag and the strap length is well thought out. I love the big bold colors in Vera's patterns, but this is nice for people that dont want to be so bold and just want a pretty bag without it being "bang" in your face with color.

Great medium size tote.
I love this new tote, especially in the vines pattern. I had quite a bit of difficulty finding it as it was sold out online and my local V.B. Store never received it. I am so glad I went to all the trouble of hunting one down. It is the perfect size when you do not need a large tote. It is quite lightweight to carry, but holds its shape well due to the leatherette bottom. I usually pass up any bag that does not have some kind of outside pocket, but I made an exception in this case. I did purchase a loop keychain to hang on one of the straps, giving me a handy spot to hang keys or a small coin purse etc. Though there is no top zipper, the magnetic catch is very strong.
The inside lining, in the flower shower pattern, is very attractive, and, of course, all my flower shower accessories look great. The three inside pockets are as deep and wide as my hand. I usually carry a zip zip wallet, a wristlet, a tech case, a double eye case, a pair of sunglasses, a checkbook, small calendar, small notebook, Kleenex pack and a small V.B. water bottle. Sometimes I add my iPad, with the V.B. sleeve. This all fits nicely with room left over. The bag never feels heavy and it keeps it's slim profile. Definitely one of my favorites of all my V.B. bags.

Prettiest bag I own!
This bag is incredible! I ordered in the Bayou Waves and I couldn't be happier. Fun, sassy, yet still professional enough for work. I have many, many Vera bags/accessories and this is a standout. There is plenty of room and pockets for my needs and the quality is as you would expect from VB.

Wrong color thread for personalization
I love the bag- but not the personalization.
I was so looking forward to this bag and bought it with my 40% birthday discount- I had it personalized as well! When the bag arrived the embroidery was barley noticeable! The black thread was lost. Yellow would be a much better choice, but not available.

Love This Tote
Purchased this tote in Shower Vines and one week later in Fanfare Fans. Not too large and as with all VB bags - lots of inside pockets. Love the inside out pattern. Very classy!!

I bought this tote because I loved the design of it! Its slim, has slim straps and also has a lot of pockets inside. Not forgetting about the beautiful inside out pattern. I have mine is shower vines and it isn't a large tote but it can fit a lot of stuff and can even make a lovely bag that you use everyday as a purse! The leather trim gives it a stylish edge I think and I couldn't be happier with this purchase.
