Adorbs! (Get it?!) I had not realized what a devoted following Vera Bradley
has until I started shopping for totes
on Zappos. I bought this one because I needed a very functional tote with lots of pockets and a cool, boho design. This bag is large enough to hold a travel blanket, sweatshirt
, Kindle fire, textbook, cell phone, wallet, snacks, keys and makeup - without even bulging! I love all the pockets inside and out, and the toggle closure is fine for my needs. I bought it in the suzani pattern, which is gorgeous and richly colored, and hides smudges nicely. My only gripe - and it is a small one - is that I think the strap with the metal latch which is sewn into the outside pocket to hold keys, wallet etc should be put into the zipper pocket on the back of the bag instead of in the open pocket on the front. That way, whatever you are hooking onto your bag (I hooked my VB wristlet to it) can be extra secure and it leaves the nice deep front pocket open for a water bottle. However, that is all nit-picky stuff - this is a great bag and I am super-pleased with my purchase and with Zappos!
