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 5 out of 5 by CrazyVBbagLady Stylish Satchel
The Trimmed Satchel in Midnight Paisley is my absolute favorite handbag ever! It is the perfect size; not too big or small, has just the right amount of slip and zip pockets, opens wide to make finding items easy, and zips close so nothing falls out if it tips over. The bottom of the purse is made of the "faux" leather. It looks nice, and keeps the bag looking clean.
My iPhone 6 in a Speck case fits perfectly in the outside slip pocket. I use a small size cosmetic bag to hold my odds and ends (makeup, supplies, elastic a for my hair, etc.) and the On a Roll case, (also in Midnight Paisley, to keep extra chargers, headphones, external mobile charging battery and a flash drive or two), to keep clutter minimized. My Turn Lock Wallet in Raisen holds my cash, change, cards and checkbook. The two small bags and my wallet fits with room to spare! On occasion I've tossed in my iPad Mini in a case as well.
The Satchel has never felt heavy, and the option of holding it with the handles at the elbow or grasped in the hand, or using the shoulder strap makes it versatile and easy to carry. Plus, this purse looks fantastic carried with my Work Tote in Midnight Houndstooth!!! This is a winner, Vera Bradley!
