Fantastic purse and lightweight
This a great purse.lightweight Love the style and new patterns. I got it in Moon Blooms and also the matching wallet. It is roomy, functional and the attachable strap helps to keep your hands free. Love it, get it and you won't be disappointed.

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!

Sophisticated handbag that can carry a LOT
I usually wait for sales to buy my VB, but when I saw this bag in the Fall brochure I knew I had to have it. It's the perfect bag to dress up since it has the (quality) faux leather trim.
It's about the same width but taller than my On the Go (for reference), but can hold a ton more. Since the top tapers out instead of in like other bags, I don't feel like I'm playing Tetris to pack the last items I need on top.
In my opinion, they honestly could have just done without the shoulder strap. It's not really a deal breaker since I bought this bag to carry in the crook of my arm. However it's just worth mentioning that when carrying it as a shoulder bag looks a tad funny and the handles just get in the way.
Still a beautiful bag, though. Love the new Ink Blue!
