I love how I always feel like I'm opening a present when I receive a Vera package.
I purchased this bag for school, so I'm not really sure how everything is going to fit inside. I've read several reviews talking about how roomy this bag is. I was able to put my standard laptop (15 inch) inside, but it was a very snug fit. I placed my school book in the bag and there is room for other things. Look for a full review of this bag in the coming weeks. I was debating about keeping this bag or not, but I do believe I will be keeping this messenger bag!! We'll see how it goes!!
As far as the shipping and handling is concerned, I feel like Vera takes extra special care of your items that you order. Everything is packed and wrapped very nicely. I feel like the shipping time takes FOREVER!! But it was a week from the time I ordered it, to the time it was sitting on my desk. The more I think about other retailers I've ordered from, this time seems pretty standard. Order something of your own? Send us a pic, we'd love to see it!!
