Pleated Shoulder Bag 4.5 5 25 25
This bag has it all! This is my favorite bag to date, and I have owned over 40 styles of VB. I loved my large hobo, but didn't like the fact that all of my stuff would fall out if my purse tipped over in my car. The pleated shoulder has the same size of the large hobo, but contains all my stuff with a zipper! The pockets on the outside are wonderful and deep. I currently hold a large phone, tissues, lip gloss and keys in the pockets. Inside I have an accordion wallet, large cosmetic, coin purse, and zip id. Can also comfortably add a medium e reader. Love this bag! August 21, 2014
My Favorite Purse I have been looking for a purse for a while that would be perfect for me, which would be one that would hold all of my essentials plus my kindle. I tried crossbodies such as the carry all crossbody, but I couldn't find one that I liked carrying. They were either to big or a little too heavy to carry. I decided to give this bag a try just to check it out and I love it. It is perfect. I can carry all of the things I need in a purse such as tissues, checkbook, all-in-one wallet, coin purse, lotion, hand sanitizer, pill case, pen and a couple other things; and if I want to I can add my kindle without it being heavy on my shoulder. It is actually quite comfortable to carry. My favorite part of the purse has to be the front pockets. I wasn't aware that they had them, but they are at the corner of the bag. I thought that was very cute. I would suggest this bag to anyone that needs a medium-large bag. I definitely plan to get more! July 23, 2014
Love this purse!! This purse is the perfect size! I'm a mom of two and I love how I can put as little or as much as I want into this bag and it's still perfect. It stays on my shoulder very comfortably. I love the front pockets to hold my keys. The inside pockets help keep my lip balm, phone and pen handy. I fit the zip around wallet in here along with a bottle of water, change of shorts for my son, and an ipad and still have room! However, I can still just have my wallet and a few other essentials and it doesn't feel baggy, like I'm carrying a bag that is too big. I highly recommend it to anyone! July 10, 2014
Perfect size -- not too big, not too small As a petite woman (4'11"), this bag is a perfect size for me. With 2 inside pockets and an inside zippered pocket, it's roomy enough to hold all of my things. But it's small enough so it doesn't overwhelm my small frame. I also like the two outside pockets on the side, one holds my Samsung Galaxy S3 and the other is for my keys. With the outside pockets at an angle, it makes for a nice touch but can also make it hard sometimes to access my stuff. Normally, I'm not a fan of rolled handles because I usually makes bags feel heavier to me. Not so with the Pleated Shoulder Bag. Overall, I'm quite pleased! June 30, 2014
GREAT BAG I love this bag... works very well with my daily/work week needs. Pockets are perfect; especially the outside pockets. wish it came in solid colors too ! June 27, 2014
Nice size! First of all, I am a Bowler lover. With the Pleated Tote, I would like to have 3 pockets inside and each a little bigger because I can't fit my compact mirror in it. I like the outside pockets but they are a little hard to access the phone quickly (maybe the angle). I wish they weren't discontinuing the bowler. June 20, 2014
Love it! I bought this bag and was a little hesitant about the reviews. I am glad I bought this bag. It is gorgeous in Citron. The colors are so vibrant. I find it to hold enough of my everyday items without it being over stuffed. I have the lock wallet, small cosmetic bag, small tech case, checkbook, halo charger for my phone, date book, pens, gum, & mints and everything fits nicely. I can open it up and find just what I am looking for. The straps I love.They stay on my shoulder. I love the two outside pockets. One holds my Iphone 5 and the other pocket holds my glass/sunglasses. And they are deep so I don't worry about loosing my phone. 2 Inside pockets are great for holding my extra pens and date book. Zipper pocket holds my spare keys, laundry stick, etc. I find this to be my favorite VB bag. June 18, 2014
Incorrect dimensions I got it this morning, a little disappointed because the description says 18" but it's only about 15". I thought I would get a bigger bag. June 7, 2014
Great bag...incorrect dimensions. Got my new bag in the mail today. I was so very excited to get it. I got it in Flower Shower and I absolutely love the color. However, the dimensions are absolutely incorrect. This bag is only 15" wide. When you order online you definitely order based on the dimensions listed. So in that regard, I was a little disappointed. But despite the dimension issue, I really like my new bag. May 23, 2014
My new favorite purse This bag is adorable with the rolled handles and pleating. I love the look. I wasn't sure if I would like the rolled handles, but they are great. I love having the zipper closure and zip pocket inside. Slip pockets on the front are perfect for my phone and keys. May 22, 2014
