FAVORITE VERA BAG EVER
I have owned lots Vera Bradley bags. Different styles, different colors. This bag in Very Berry Paisley is my all time favorite. I have owned it for two years now and have used it almost the entire time. Every time I try a new handbag, after a couple of weeks, I bring back the Saddle Up bag and use it for a month or two. The amount of pockets is perfect to keep things organized; and the two outside pockets are awesome. One for iPhone 5 and one for my lip products. The size is perfect because it prevents me from adding everything and the kitchen sink, but it has enough room for me to carry everything I need onto a plane without a carry on. (Water bottle, Kindle, wallet, cosmetic bag, meds, etc.) I love this bag and would buy it again in my favorite patterns. (I am a bit picky with the patterns.) A word on Very Berry Paisley. Favorite pattern ever. It is perfect for someone who's favorite color is pink.

Favorite Vera Bradley bag!
This is the greatest bag of the ones I own and have seen! My first favorite was the hobo but it sags and you have to dig for items as it is very deep. The next every day use bag I own is the tablet hipster which is great but has less space for your items (once the iPad is in it) and also weighs on you after a while.
Back to this bag. It has a back zipper that fits your phones , keys or makeup. It also has two front small pockets under the flap that can easily fit my iPhone or any celphone with a thick cover as well. The inside is perfect. I can fit the iPad, a spiral notebook, a full size wallet ( I have the accordion matching VB) and a few toiletries. It works great for on the go and keeps the cute form. The strap can be used long or short which makes it very versatile. Love, love , love this bag! As far as the magnetic closure, I touched it and it doesn't seem to move much for now. I guess you could mess around later on or sew some if need too like others have said. Definitely not a big deal. This is a great bag especially when bought on sale! The color baroque is beautiful. My new favorite.

Voting for Old Version w/ Ring
I was just looking to purchase another color since the one I have in white/black shows dirt constantly, but prefer the older version. I can't rave about the older version w/ ring enough. Can't believe this is being retired, as a mom of an infant, this purse is great to wear as a cross body and perfectly fits a diaper/wipe box and snacks inside without being too heavy and quickly accessible while not taking up a hand or a shoulder. Please rethink this decision, as this style is the perfect size without the bulk!
