Tic Tac Tote
Medium size tote
I've bought different sizes totes in the last few months, this one I recieved today in the mail. It would be helpful if others compare the totes to give us an idea of their true size. So I decided to do so. The Tic Tac Tote is a smaller version of the Vera. It's cute and does not look big nor bulky. However, I was used to the Vera, so when I transfered my stuff from the Vera to this tote, not everything would fit. The outside slip pocket is very tight if you decide to use the slip pocket opposite of this one in the inside. In other words, you either use one or the other. The other slip pockets are shorter than in the Vera, so my sunglass case was not completely inside the pocket. This was true for each of the other pockets. My things would overflow, if you will. It's bigger than the Mandy, which is a very small version of the Vera. So if I where to compare all this in size, I would say that the Mandy is short and narrow, then the Tic Tac Tote would be a bigger upgrade, then the Vera, my favorite, to use as purses. After that we go into the bigger totes. These would be for weekends or carry on trips. I love the Miller, but it's too big for a purse but perfect for a day in the beach. And my other favorite would be the Carried Away Tote. This is perfect for every week end that I pack for a three day outing. So this gives you a comparison of sizes. It's really your preference. I like an every day tote that I can put my scarf, sweater, iPad, work folders, sunglasses, small journal, wallet, keys, pill box, eye drops, lipstick, etc. this would be the Vera, and still feels empty and can fill more. Happy shopping!

Can't go wrong with this tote!
I was a bit hesitant to buy this tote as I knew nothing about it. I don't have a VB store near me, so I have to go off what I find online about it. I'm glad I did order this bag though! Its absolutely wonderful and practical. All the inside slip pockets that it has are great for organization. I got it in the flutterby print and I love how bright the colors are! I also love that you can put a lot of things in it without it feeling heavy.

Love this tote with the zipper!
This bag is a smaller version of the MIller Bag. I really like this tote because it has the zipper to keep everything inside securely. I want privacy and not have to worry about stuff falling out of a bag if it falls over on it's side or gets turned upside down in my car. It has six interior pockets inside that are decent size. This is a great tote I will be using for work and when I need a carry all bag for a day.
I recently used this tote to take my husband for medical tests I knew I might have to "wait" for awhile. I packed a 10" tablet, 3 magazines, weekly ads from Sunday paper, a water bottle and two snacks. It did start to feel like the tote was getting a little heavy. I wouldn't want to carry this tote on my shoulders with the straps for too long.
Please add the option of a padded shoulder strap to this tote like on the Weekender bag. For those of us who like the "padded shoulder strap" , please consider adding it because it would make this tote more comfortable to carry it when it starts to get heavy.
I ordered it in Fanfare and it's very cute! I looked at the Vera tote and not having a zipper won't work for me. I don't want to worry about my stuff falling out if the bag falls over.
