I went to the shop with the intention of buying the Mandy bag, but I loved this one on sight. This is my seventh Vera bag (I have a thing for purses), & it is by far my favorite! I have three young daughters, & it amazes me that I can fit all of our stuff for a day out without this bag feeling bulky or weighty. It's like Mary Poppins' bag! :) This bag replaced the bowler & hipster combo I had going on before. I can just grab this one bag and go without looking like I'm carrying luggage.

Great Hobo, tons of room and LOVE the single faux-leather shoudler strap. Such a comfortable ( and pretty ) purse to carry !

Okay, I have never reviewed any of my vera bag, and have alot of them, but this has just become my all time favorite. I just switched from my baggallini messager, i just fit everything into it from the other bag and its light and still have more room, the strap fits perfect under my arms with my winter coat and I have larger arms I like that it is not snug under your arms, but you still have the same effect of being snug, you have to try it to see what I am talking about. Yes if they come in with more patterns I will be purchasing another on if its in something I like. would be nice to have this in symphony in hue.

Love this Bag..Great Everyday Purse
If you love hobo purses, then this is the bag for you. PRINT - I purchased the Clementine and it is very pretty and spring like; the colors are fushia, pink, orange, some purple on a white background. STRAP COLOR - The strap on the clementine is a fushia strap (leather-like) STRAP LENGTH- the strap for me had to be adjusted. I am 5'8 and I adjusted the strap to make it a little longer. I would like the future bags to have a little longer strap so I would not have to have the purse at the last adjustable strap hole. POCKETS - front zip pocket front flap, front slip pocket, back slip pocket. DEPTH - The bag is deep, I could fit my wallet, cosmetic bag, keys, a small bottle water. REQUEST - I'd love to see the bag in some of the older prints, hobo purses are well loved classics. I'd love to see this bag in Vava Bloom, Tutti Fruitti, and others prints.

Fell in love with this bag as soon as I saw it and purchased it on release day. I got it in the Citron because of the taupe background which is a nice change. The width of the bag is larger than the 12" as stated, plenty of room and even though I stuff it, not too heavy and comfortable on the shoulder. I have purchased a number of Vera bags over the years and I'm sure this will become one of my favorites.

Glad I gave this one a second look!
I had planned to purchase a different bag until I saw this in person. Fits great on the shoulder, even over a coat. The leather like trim makes it a little dressier. I was able to fit a lot in the bag including: large Coach wallet, Kindle papewhite in a case, small VB make up bag (full), iPhone 5, VB Tune up case with headphones, iPhone charger, and there is still room for more. Purchased in the Citron color which is much prettier in person. This is a great bag with lots of room and style!

The Perfect Bag
I was looking for a mid size bag that fits all of my daily essentials and is still organized/stylish, this is the perfect bag! I love the faux-leather trim; it gives the bag sophistication so I can carry it to work and school. It looks so cute and I've gotten so many compliments on it. The interior pockets are spacious and deep enough to hold more than one item. The inside of the bag also has a zippered pocket which is pretty big. The outside zip pocket is the perfect size and fits my chapstick, mirror, lip gloss, medicine, etc. Overall, I LOVE this bag, it has so much room, its organized, and its stylish. I will be getting more in different colors soon and I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

The Holy Grail of Handbags
First of all, let me just give a round of applause for Vera Bradley on this one! They have finally come up with a bag that meets ALL of my pre-req's for a great handbag. Cute pattern, a front pocket, a zip top closure, wide opening into bag, lots of inside pockets, very generous space inside, lightweight and....FEET! I was so excited to see there were metal feet on the bottom of this purse, and to make it feel even more special a faux leather handle! I immediately fell in love and purchased, and I am not regretting it! It holds all of my necessities, my junk, and even has room to spare.
I bought this bag in the new Blue Bayou and I think it's just gorgeous. If you like to carry hobo's go ahead and give this new one a try! I really don't think there is any way to hate this bag. :)
