My new favorite VB bag
I bought this bag in Citron. I love the pattern! I needed a crossbody bag and I had tried the little hipster which was just too small and I've tried the mailbag which was too skinny and things would fall to the bottom and I'd have a difficult time fishing them out. This one in just right. The two slip pockets on the front are perfect: keys in one and my iPhone in an Otterbox Defender case in the other. The back zip compartment is very roomy with the zip going all the way across. This is where I keep lip glosses, a compact, a small bottle of lotion, and hand sanitizer and there's still room for more! Inside there are two large slip pockets where I keep pens, reading glasses, gum, earbuds, and a small note pad. I do slightly miss an inside zip compartment. The bottom of the bag is wider, but not too wide. I can easily get to my wallet, inhaler, and other items that I didn't put in pockets. Strap is very comfortable, too. I just love it!

The Best Purse VB Has
I've used Saddle Up, On The Go, and Clare but I always had spray, headache medicine, and my VB wristlet in my bag, along with a bunch of other stuff, and nothing seemed to fit. When this bag got released, I wasn't planning on getting it but when I saw it I bought it on the first day it came out. It is the perfect size for everything I need, and I love the inside and outside pockets, along with the zip closure so that everything stays in the bag while I'm on the go. I absolutely love it, and I am soo happy with this bag. The strap is the perfect length to throw over my shoulder, and the bag isn't too big or too small. It's the Goldilocks of bags and I love it.

Best Vera Ever
I purchased the Crossbody Carryall about a month ago in Clementine. Where has it been??!! This the perfect bag for me (very round, 5", 56YO). It carries everything I need and more.
For example: When you first see it, it seems small but the bottom opens up beautifully without making it awkward. Oh, and will stand up on its own. On one side, there are 2 pockets which are perfect for my iPhone 4s in an Otterbox case and my work ID (these are very deep pockets and aren't secured so be careful). The other side has a large zipper pocket (which, right now, has a few letters). Inside are 2 nice pockets which carry my pill case, inhalator, 2 flashdrives in a case, and mints. Inside the bag, I have an iPad Mini (in a case), a Turn Lock Wallet, a Brush & Pencil makeup bag, small journal, big bunch of keys, and a pen--whew! I normally carry a Dooney & Bourke bag but I couldn't take the weight on my back and shoulders—with just the weight of bag alone! This is the perfect weight and stays on my shoulders. I will be getting another in a different pattern. Highly recommend!
