I do not understand the bad reviews on this handbag!!! I received it in Lilac and love it!!! Yes, the bag is structured (as in the title) but it is a soft to the touch quilted nylon material. The lilac color is beautiful - more purple than the picture which is what I hoped for. I love the unique opening and the all the pockets inside and out. I love Vera Bradley patterns but also hope for more solid quilted in the future. I love this bag!!!!!!!

BEAUTIFUL BAG, NOT FUNCTIONAL
When I got this bag I was so excited because it looks so sophisticated and sleek. I don't like large bags so this was a perfect size and I love the fact that it was as wide as it was. The two side pockets were perfect for my cell phone or anything that I needed to access quickly.
The only things that annoyed me were the straps not staying in place- they seemed too stiff and the fact that the bag is too open. The closure is really unique and I loved the idea, but I don't like people looking into my purse or (putting things in my purse without me noticing-my son put his cell phone in my purse while we were in the store). A zip closure would have been nice and this would have been the perfect bag.
I also purchased the matching wallet and it was stiff and also a hassle. Once I put my things in the wallet I could not close it and it seemed very bulky. Great idea, but not functional at all.
Please revamp and come back with something of the same size and in black.

Love you Vera but... This bag is a no.
I purchased this bag last year in mid November. I needed a solid colored bag for everyday use and thought the basic black structured hobo was going to be perfect! I was wrong... :( It is pretty to look at but... As soon as I put the bag on my shoulder I knew it was going to be sent back. One strap of the purse hung on my shoulder while the other strap hovered in the air above. This purse is VERY stiff and hard as a rock. There is NO movement in this purse AT ALL. It is heavy and boxy and disappointing... I love love love all my other Vera bags and would recommend any of the signature collection Vera bags to anyone and everyone. I would also recommend going to a Vera retailer and looking at the great bags offered in a store BEFORE purchasing online.

not what I was expecting :/
When I first saw this bag online I was thrilled, because it looks like the perfect bag that could go from ‘desk to dinner’ but once it was delivered I was disappointed because it is so round… it’s a beautiful bag, but it is simply to wide for my personal style.

I bought the Lilac choice at an authorized retailer, then returned it the same day. It was quite heavy....not to mention the straps were a pain, always in the way. I normally love all Vera Bradley handbags, but not this one. Got the wallet to match, and that was a nuisiance...had a hard time getting my credit cards out the slots. That went back also.

Must Have Bag !
I bought this bag before it came out and the snap wallet to go with it also. I have to say this bag is pretty and elegant. I LOVE IT !!! It goes great with anything... It has a ton of space and great pockets inside and outside, the pattern inside is awesome.
