I love the Vera tote, so I decided to give this tote a try. I think it is a very nice style. I like how it has the same pockets as the Vera tote and has the added zipper for the main compartment. The inside is a little different and it has a leather trim added. The handles are thin, but they are not too thin that it makes the bag heavy or anything. I did prefer the cloth Vera on my shoulder however. It was a little more comfortable, but now I have a tote in case I want that look!

Gorgeous all-around tote!
I just purchased this bag in Ziggy Zinnia, and honestly, I was expecting it to be heavy with the leather additions. It's not at all--very portable and roomy with six large pockets inside. The outside seems to have a bit of a sheen on it that makes me feel like it will be more durable than other traditional Vera bags, and it has a square, leather bottom that keeps the bag sitting upright and clean.
While it's a bit roomy for every day, I do love it as a carry on. It fits my laptop and all my accessories easily. And the color combo with the black leather is so beautiful!
