With a few changes this bag could be FANTASTIC!!
i really like the design of this bag except for two things. First what I like about it. It has a fake leather bottom which is really nice so that you can clean it. It is quite roomy. I love the patterns. I had a difficult time deciding between the Ink Blue & African Violet. I decided on the African violet and LOVE the pink spots on the inside. There are plenty of pockets.
Now what I didn't like. The handles are just a tad too short to wear it on my shoulder. It seems like all VB bags are made this way. Why? I like to have a bag be versatile and carry it on my arm or shoulder. Sometimes I want the bag on my shoulder and close to me. I live in NYC you need to have your bag close sometimes! Not everyone walks around like Queen Elizabeth with their handbag on their forearm. The shoulder strap is also too short to wear as a crossbody. Why couldn't the shoulder strap be adjustable? With these two minor changes this would be an awesome bag!

Madly in love
I love this purse!!! Very roomy and I love that it zips and opens wide so I can find things easily. One of my all time favorites!! Highly recommend!

Nice Bag - Could be GREAT!
The verdict is still out for me on this one. Ordered in Moon Blooms. Love the color and the style/shape of the bag. It's a great size. What I don't particularly like is that the lining of the bag is not quilted like other Vera bags which makes it feel less structured. Also, this bag really needs to have the hard bottom in it for support. The faux leather on the bottom is very thin and not very sturdy and I would really like to have the metal feet on the bottom.
