Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen14 The Perfect Vera Bag!
I have carried Vera bags for many years and can confidently report that the Trimmed Satchel is the perfect bag! The size and shape are designed for everyday use. It easily holds my VB wallet, small cosmetic bag, tablet, phone, brush, as well as a variety of other items. Because of the wide, zippered opening of the bag, everything is easily accessible. There are several inside slip pockets and an inside zippered pocket as well. There is also an outside slip pocket, perfect for keys.
This bag has handles and a removable strap, both in faux leather which is ideal for keeping them clean. The handle and shoulder strap are the perfect length for my height - 5'7. The shoulder strap is quite comfortable. The base of the bag is also done in faux leather, which allows it to stand up when it is open and also keeps it clean.
I think this is the PERFECT Vera Bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JLN64 LOVE it, except for the handles and strap.
I love this purse! The black trim gives the purse a more polished look, yet it still has the storage pockets and colorful pattern that I love about Vera Bradley purses.
I gave 4 out of 5 stars because the handles are not long enough to tuck the purse under my shoulder, and the optional strap is not long enough to be able to wear the purse as a cross body. If these things were changed, I would buy this purse in every new color pattern!

Rated 4 out of 5 by pa8935 Would be perfect with a few changes.
I love this bag. It is the perfect size for me to carry all my stuff (full size wallet, checkbook, makeup bag, phone etc), plus my Nook which I take nearly everywhere. The front slip pocket is the PERFECT size for my iphone 6, without being too roomy where it would fall out. The trim really make this bag stand out.
The only changes I would make are to the lining and the handles. The trimmed satchel is really not a great size or shape for a cross-body strap. I would love if the handles were a few inches longer. Also, the lining is just a matching fabric, and kind of loose. It's not a quilted lining like a traditional Vera bag. This make me nervous that it could rip, and feels inexpensive.
