The purse is just okay. It is too small for the price!
Rated 4 out of 5 by fatface VERY CUTE BAG
I received this bag in the cognac color and it really is classy. The gold hardware is stunning with this bag. It is roomy inside and the rosewood lining is one of my favorite patterns, its gorgeous!!! I agree with other reviewer, the handles would have been better to have had gold rings in order for them to lay down when utilizing the long strap. This is a pricy bag for being small. Would like to have gotten this in another color but due to the price and the straps, I'm just going to settle with just this one.
Rated 3 out of 5 by T AZ Design flaw
Being aware of the high price of shipping, I took a chance on this bag. Sadly, I've decided to return it.
1. The leather is nice and supple
2. The overall look is cute
3. The bag holds everything I need. (I'm not a "carry my life in my bag" person).
4. The major flaw is the handles. They don't stick up like in the video. Mine arrived with the handles "floppy" on both sides - not an attractive look. I feel that this is a design shortcut. If the handles had been attached with the same gold hardware, the handles would drop straight down and look more attractive.
5. If you like to wear this on the crook of your arm, you're out of luck.
I did look at the larger version of this bag but it's too big for my taste.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Olisa So cute and functional, too
I've been looking for a smaller black leather bag to really love for a number of years now. This one is IT. It holds what I need, looks super sharp, and looks great both with or without using the strap.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Huntergal A MA ZING!
I'll admit when I first opened the box I thought it might be too small. Then I touched it! Sooo soft! The smell of leather hits you in the face! I got the Claret color and its gorgeous. The bag is extremely lightweight. The zippers are substantial. The lining is very pretty. I do not think its made as well as a Dooney. It lacks some of the finishing touches that a Dooney has but its nice. I think it should cost a little less. I have a Dooney Cross body that is bigger and much roomier than this and its costs about the same. I received several compliments the first time I carried this bag. I would like to see VB offer extra items with their leather bags such as key fobs or matching wallets. Dooney on QVC always seems to have special offers such as that for the QVC customers.

Got the cognac color in this bag and like it very much. For a small bag, it will hold all that is needed for going out. Even loaded, it is light and easy to carry, by hand or cross body. Loved the side pocket, the hardware, and the softness of the leather.

Lately, I've been on a quest to find the perfect small, lightweight handbag that would hold all the things I need to carry. I've tried a few options and haven't been satisfied, until I found this little gem. I have a lot of Dooney, Coach, Tumi and other high end bags that I love, but they're all larger and heavier than what I've been looking for.
I've had a great deal of back pain over the last few years and I just cannot carry a heavy handbag any longer, but I still want an attractive luxury bag.
The others I've tried have either been too small, not luxury enough or not high quality enough. This little bag is absolutely perfect, exactly what I've been looking for. It's small and lightweight, but the shape allows it to hold quite a lot. The bag isn't bulging to it's limits, making it impossible to get in and out of with ease.
This is my first Vera Bradley. I need a tough durable bag because I tend to be hard on them and cloth just wouldn't cut it. I was happy to find Vera Bradley in leather because with her specialization in lightweight bags it stood to reason this brand might be the one. The leather on this bag is DIVINE, it feels and smells positively WONDERFUL. This bag is gorgeous, small and lightweight with a lovely design and the perfect shape. I can fit everything I need; credit cards, money, eyeglasses, sunglasses, keys, and various other necessities with room to spare. And my Iphone 6+ fits in the front pocket with room to spare. The strap is nice and long and adjustable. Vera Bradley knocked this one out of the park!
