I received this bag as a gift, and even though I find it too small to classify as a tote bag, I love large purses- so, for me, this is a great bag! The pocket in the front is great to slip a book in, if I'm on the go. The pockets on the inside are great for my phone and a few other things, and the zipper is fantastic for a few personal items. Its large and roomy enough to store a few things- on a trip with my girlfriends, I was able to fit my lunch, wallet, shawl, Tupperware of yummy scones, phone, keys, iPod, and a book. It is the perfect bag!

I have this bag in Deco Daisy and I've really enjoyed carrying it! It's great for travelling and everday! I like the inside pockets and that I can fit whatever I need in it. The only thing that is dissapointing about this bag is that if I wear a white or light color shirt, at the end of the day, there will be red left behind from the straps on the shirt. Maybe it's the heat here in the South, however, with a little pre-wash it comes right out.

beautiful, functional bag
I love this bag it is beautiful and extremely functional. The rainy season is about here and this bag is perfect for the rainy weather. Just dry it off with a towel. The colors take the drabness out of the rainy season. The pockets are large and generous it's so easy to find everything. This purse looks great with with skirts or jeans. A must for any ward robe.

We got this bag for my mom as a birthday present. She is kind of getting into Vera Bradley and English Meadow is one of her favorite patterns.
She and I absolutely adore it! It is big enough to fit a wallet, camera, bottle of water, iPod, spare change off clothes, small shoes, pencil pouch, compact umbrella, and make up bag. I highly recommend this bag for any VB lover who needs a tote bag.

Great everyday tote
I saw this in my local store and thought, "ok, just try it". I can say this is a great size for me. I love big bags in the hobo style and this fits the bill. I would love to see this style in the signature collection. Light weight, love the pockets, inside and out. Please think about it Vera.

CRAZY ABOUT THIS BAG
I love this bag!! Holds everything and it cleans up so easy when little ones drop something on it. I got mine for MOther's Day and have enjoyed it ever since.

LOVE this bag!
A little larger than I was expecting but it doesn't feel bulky. It has lots of compartments to keep things organized rather that one deep open space that everything gets lost in. I have gotten lots of compliments already :)

Love this tote!!!!
I saw this online and thought it would make a great tote for everyday. When I went to my local store, I fell in love with the deco daisy print. It is very vibrant and great for summer. I was unsure of the straps at first, but after trying it on empty and full, the straps never slipped one bit.....and they are the perfect length just to throw over your shoulder. I highly recommend this bag to anyone who likes a nice size bag for on-the-go.

This bag is great!
I don't understand the complaint of the previous reviewer, only giving the bag a horrible review because she "didn't like the colors." One should know that all Frill collections are limited and are only made in the current colors of that season. The styles change all the time. If a bag style is popular, they *might* have the same style the next season. What I like about this tote, compared to the previous ones is that its wide and not tall. It has a unique shape and excellent hardware accents. The pockets are larger to hold more items/larger things.
I was not a big fan of the Viva La Vera main pattern. It was just too loud. However in Frill it's awesome. I love the purple piping around the whole bag. I also got the matching wallet.
