Small Colorblock Tote
An everyday bag
Mine arrived today from the mail. The bag is a gorgeous colour, vibrant blue! I got it in marina paisley. I often go to to the library & it holds a regular size notebook, iPad mini,a sandwich if you like and a small bottled water. Be mindful though, that it doesn't have a zipper but for me, it isn't an issue.

LOVE THIS TOTE!
I've purchased this tote for myself as well as buying several as gifts and everyone really likes them. I can carry my wallet and ipad as well as a jacket -- the only downside is that there is no zipper top but it's nice and deep.

Great tote, small size - read dimensions carefully
This is a great little tote bag but it is small. I'd advise all buyers to consider the dimensions carefully before purchasing this item. It's the perfect size for carrying a change of shoes or clothes, however, the large colorblock tote would probably be a more practical size for the beach, day trips, or traveling. Despite its small size, the straps are just long enough to fit over your shoulder so it can be used as a purse for those with smaller frames, although it does not have a zipper so you probably want to make sure your wallet and other valuables aren't easily accessible. This tote is made of high quality canvas with two cotton print pockets at either end and a hanging zip pocket and handy keyring on the inside. It has a solid, removable base which keeps the bag standing upright (great to prevent drinks from spilling) and makes the bag easy to wash. A friend of mine got these monogramed for all her bridesmaids at her wedding and then again ordered some more for all her baby shower guests! (for this purpose, it's much more affordable than the large colorblock tote). It looks like this small tote is being discontinued which is a shame because it is a great size for younger girls in particular. My little sister got a bunch of these monogramed totes for her dance crew for Christmas. Now they all have matching bags with their names on them. So cute! They would also make great birthday gifts. I do hope Vera Bradley continues to make smaller versions of her classic totes and handbags. Little girls love dressing up like their mothers and older sisters and it would be a great way for Vera Bradley to attract younger customers who will grow up to become loyal VB fans like me!
