Last summer I was able to do a Viva la Vera Bradley Review. As you know, I have been looking for a great teacher bag. Even if I end up substituting (which it looks like I’m going to be doing), I need a good bag to carry my stuff around in. So, I reached out to Vera Bradley again in hopes of finding a beautiful one. I’m happy to report that I did.
I was sent the wonderful Go Round Tote in Va Va Bloom. This awesome bag has many wonderful pockets. The outside has two pockets on each side. Then, it has two pockets on the side that reach around the entire bag. That’s two medium sized pockets and two extra large pockets on the sides! Those pockets are perfect for storing a cell phone, keys, id, pencils and pens. It could also carry a camera or planner. Then, the inside features three smaller pockets to store stuff. I do wish it contained one zippered pocket though to conceal my stuff.
Plus, the bag itself is a great, roomy size at 13¼” x 14¼” x 4¼”. I was actually able to fit a pair of dress shoes, socks, dress pants, a dressy shirt, suit jacket and my external hard drive into it one day for a last minute interview! It still had room! I have no doubt it will be able to handle all of my teacher papers and books. I love that the top zips close. It has a breakaway zip closure so the zipper is not in the way when I need to make something big fit into it. However, that does mean that it requires two hands to close it. I guess it can’t be perfect.
I love the look of this bag. The colors of the Va Va Bloom pattern are bright and bold. I think almost every color can be found in it. I like that because that means it can match every outfit I wear without me trying. Plus, the colors can brighten up a groggy morning and get me going. It is a pattern you would expect from Vera Bradley for sure.
Once again, I am very impressed with Vera Bradley. I can’t wait to see what they come out with next. I just love all of the things I have from the brand and want more. They might even make my Christmas/birthday wishlist. So, what do you think of this tote?
