    This review is from: Vera Bradley Glenna Shoulder Bag – Solids (Accessory)
    I fell in love with this bag the moment I started transfering all of my “stuff” from my old bag to this one. Not only is there PLENTY of room for my thick wallet, cosmetic bag, and filofax, (not to mention the pens, checkbook and sunglasses that fit perfectly in the inner pockets, but I have been truly amazed over how much more I can pack into this bag. And I have not even mentioned the two outside compartments, which are AMAZING! Although I had almost gotten used to the constant stuggle involved in shoving my cell phone into the small outside pockets of other Vera bags–not to mention the tug of war to retrieve it before missing a call and, my all time favorite, accidentally pocket dialing someone, the outside compartments on this bag are like having an extra hipster bag by my side! Not only is there plenty of room for my phone, but I throw my keys in there, my train pass, whatever paperback I happen to be reading, small toys to distract my kids when necessary, etc.
    The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because it does not quite keep its “subtly structured silhouette,” as described in the bag’s description on the website. When carrying the bag over my shoulder, the front and back sides of the bag (the narrow sides–not the ones with the great pockets) bulge towards the middle to bottom — regardless of what I put (or don’t put) in the main compartment — and the bulging can get annoying over my winter coat! I suspect this happens based on the actual design of the bag, as opposed to the way I handle the bag, but I look forward to hearing other people’s opinions. Regardless of the bulging, I would buy this bag again because it really is terrific!

    One of these days I am going to have to learn how to leave some things at home instead of packing them up with me every day…but until then, this is my go-to bag!

    The bag is beautiful, though the rosewood pattern looks very different in person than on the screen. On the screen purple and pinks are the dominant colors, in person red and bright pink are dominant (and even the purple is more a bright magenta). It’s still a beautiful bag! I just wanted to mention in case anyone else was looking at the rosewood who hadn’t seen it in person. It’s a beautiful pattern, but it’s a very “loud” pattern. I have a Portobello Road Quick Swipe ID I thought would be a nice blend with this bag. From the picture the purples looked like they would go nicely together and it looks like there is a lot of brown in the bag to also mesh with the Portobello Road pattern. I didn’t expect a match, just that they would look nicely together (for example I have a Ziggy Zinnia Vera Tote and a Sun Valley Clip Zip ID that pair together well). Definitely not the case. I added a picture (with the Amazon credit card, though all identifying info has been removed from the card in the picture), though I don’t know how much that helps with visualization because my camera made the two purples look very similar, but you can maybe see the way the colors pop a lot more than one the picture on the listing.

    Barring the color expectation differences, the bag is wonderful. A great size for a mom on the go. Has the expected three pockets on one side of the inside and a zipped up pocket on the other side of the inside. The main bag area also zips up. Then there is an open pocket in the front for stashing things you want easy access to.
