Vera Bradley purses and wallets are wonderful choices for women on the go. The purses are great because of the pockets on the inside and the outside...there are LOTS of them. There is also a great selection of sizes, styles and colors to choose from with new colors coming out twice a year. It's always exciting for my friends and I to see the new styles that they come up with.
My 9 year old daughter and her friends are also big Vera Bradley fans. In our house, between two daughters and myself we own about 15 Vera handbags, bookbags, and wallets....so, you could say we really like them.
The one thing that I will mention is that they are washable, though when I have washed mine they tend to fade a little. You don't notice that much until you have your bag next to someone's that has never been washed, then you can tell the difference.
They are pricey pieces...a decent sized bag will cost you well over $50 (The $30-$49 range are "child sized" bags in my opinion). But, they hold their value, if you don't believe it, take a look at ebay...they sell for almost what you pay for them new when they are well used.
