I originally purhased the wallet in the mocha rouge and absolutely loved not only the style but the fabric as well. I decided I wanted to purhcase a new handbag for the summer and decided to go with the Fan Club in the mocha rouge to coordinate with the wallet. I have no regrets in my purhcase. I love it because it is not only stylish but, nice and roomy for all my contents and it is so easy to keep clean. The handles are a little bit top heavy, but I can deal with that. I am a very happy and satisfied customer!

best "day bag" ever!
This is my favorite day bag that i own! it fits all that i need with out being too big. I'm a petite women in hight (5'1) and weight and i have trouble finding a day bag or over sized purse that does not look like a suit case on my shoulder. Its supper cute in person the picture does not do it justice at all. the straps sit on my shoulder nicely, very light weight, and very easy to clean just wipe off with a damp cloth. the outside pocket is great for cell phone, lip gloss, and keys
I normally use this when I'm traveling and I'm able to fit in it:
a kindle in case (matching Vera case of coarse)
my wrist-let wallet (also Vera)
a small makeup bag
sunglasses in a hard case
bottle of water
I can fit all that in the bag with out it looking over stuffed, its very roomy inside! get this bag you will not be sorry

Love the look, but not very functional
This bag is absolutely gorgeous! With that said, I really want to love this bag, but I just can't. The straps are very stiff and constantly fall off my shoulder. The interior has two small pockets that you can store things in, but when you sit the bag down, the handles are so heavy, the bag slumps over, and the little pockets empty out into the purse. Also, the zipper is a pain...I'm used to my other Veras that I can get into with ease. Maybe if this material wasn't so stiff, it would be more functional. I'll continue to carry the bag because of its looks, but it will definitely not be my everyday bag.

I'm the Biggest Fan!
One of the best "Frill" bags out there! I got the "Fan Club" from my local Vera Bradley retailer, and I was genuinely pleased with my purchase. The exterior is made out of a vinyl- like fabric so it is very durable while being mostly waterproof. I am a sucker for Happy Snails so I naturally purchased my bag in Happy Snails (which has supressed my expectations). It is functional as well as beautiful all because of the roomy pocket on the outside, and 3 pockets in the interior. I am in love with my bag and I take it EVERYWHERE. I recommend it 100%

I love this bag!
I was looking for a new bag for fall in late August and looked everywhere - I just happen to walk into the Jefferson Pointe store, saw this bag and fell in love. This was the exact style I was looking for - not too big, not t0o small, and roomy enough to put in everything. The bonus - the little pocket in the front, perfect for my keys, glasses and cell phone. I really can't say enough about this bag. Please do not discontinue and bring out new colors. I LOVE purple, so this one is perfect. I got the turn key wallet to match, and then the umbrella for my birthday. Thanks Vera for making me always look a little more stylish.

Fun, Fresh, FANCLUB!
Heart this bag! I desperately wanted a fall-pattern purse, after having the Quick Draw in Boysenberry for a while now. I saw this at my local retailer in Happy Snails and Mocha Rouge for 40% off! I LOVE both patterns, but considering the inside pattern of Mocha Rouge looks too springy/summery, I went with Happy Snails. GREAT CHOICE! I love this bag for so many reasons! First of all, the pattern I got is fun and fresh, and I recomend it to ANYONE! And because it's Frill, it wipes clean! (Perfect for when I used it to protect myself from the rain today;) It's pretty big, too. But not too big (I carry it, and I'm a pretty small person! So don't worry about it looking like a suitcase on you.) I can carry my Opera Wallet, a bottle of water, plus my phone, iPod, lip glosses, and other neccessities, and it will be the perfect weight on my shoulder and still look sleek. Plus the bottom is very sturdy so it will stand up on its own would like them to be - they sort of dig into my shoulders...and they're pretty stiff, so I always need to have my hand up there keeping them in place. Also, I pretty well. The only problems I have are that the straps aren't as comfy as I thought all Veras were suposed to have six pockets? This only have four - not as many as I would like, but a small price to pay for such a fun bag! If I love a bag, (like this one), I ignore the problems for the sake of looking awesome! Beauty hurts, right!? Def get this bag!<3

This is a great bag for everyday use. Lots of pockets and places to put things so you're organized. I have a place for everything in this bag and it never feels cluttered or messy. Easy clean exterior and bright purple interior. I keep my cell phone and glasses case in the outside front pocket, so handy and yet deep, so I don't have to worry about them falling out. The straps are comfy and go easily over my shoulder. I really cannot say enough good things about this bag, I love it!

I am new to the Vera Bradley family and I have got to say I am hooked!!!! This is my third bag and I bought for my daughter-in-laws too!!! I received the "Fan Club" in Plum Petals and it is sooo pretty!!! The style is comfortable, and the bag is roomy - pockets everywhere. You don't have to worry about the weather either. I love the material!! I am so pleased to be part of the Vera Bradley Fan Club!!!

Number One Fan of the Fan Club
This is one of my favorite Frill bags. I collect all of the Frill bags, and just love this one. It's just the right size, roomy but not too overwhelming, and fits perfectly on my shoulder. The patterns are all so cute, but I like the Happy Snails the best, it's fun and flirty. I think any Vera aficionado would really enjoy this bag!
