Great tote but needs a zipper
I carry this tote for work and found it to be quite practical. And it provides great organization inside the bag. I even use this tote once with me on the plane. However, I really wish this bag has a zipper closure on top, or a zipper inside. When I carry this bag walking around the city, I always found myself worrying about my wallet fall out. And sometime in crowded areas, I feel I might get pickpocket carrying this bag. When the bag is kind of full, someone can easily snag my wallet from this bag.

love the solid colors
I just ordered the tote in magenta. I have tons of Vera but am so happy that they are making solid colors now. Great to mix and match. My symphony in hue wallet will match , I love that pattern and don't want to switch wallets.
More solid colors please.

Love the bag!
The tote bag is the perfect size for my ipad, a few folders, a book, and all the other usual purse items (wallet, phone, etc). The bag itself feels nice and sturdy, and the toggle on it feels more secure and looks more professional than the toggle on the regular, patterned tote bags. The straps also feel more sturdy than the straps on the regular tote bag. Overall, it's a very nice bag if you need something a nice, solid tote bag.
My only negative is that I got my bag monogramed in the purple thread color and the end result was a very reddish-pink purple, rather than the darker, more true purple that it looked like on the screen. I still like it, but it wasn't what I expected.
