To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Unfortunately, the cons out-weighed the pros with this purse. First the pros: beautiful pattern (Rumba) inside and out, cute shape, comfortable to wear. Cons: scratchy metal zippers for main compartment and front zip pocket. Because it is a small purse, it is hard to avoid rubbing hand against the rough zipper edge as one is accessing the contents, also I don't want to have to be extra careful as I am getting my Iphone out not to scratch the screen against the zipper. The main compartment zipper is also hard to "start" when closing. I finally figured out if one grasps the end of the zipper firmly as one is starting to zip, it will zip easier.
Another con for the particular purse I was sent is the quilted material was cut slightly off-grain on one side, that is the diamond quilting was an inch higher on one side. Not too noticeable with my Rumba floral print but would be very evident on a geometrical based print. I hope this is not going to be a regular incidence with Vera Bradley products.
This bag holds everything, wallet, glasses, keys, cell phone. I love the different compartments. As with other reviews that I have read about the zipper, I have had no issues. It open and closses with no issues and is smooth. It doesnt get caught on anything, I dont have to tug on it in any way. The colors are vibrant and very pretty. Great quality crossbody.
Top zipper is too industrial for purse, and continually sticks. This is not fixable. Other than the zipper doesn't work the bag looked great, good medium size, Havana rose print, inside zipper and outside zipper works, but..too bad the zipper is useless.
