My first grader has an East West tote for school, & we're loving it. Fits her folder, water bottle, VB lunch kit, plus little extras now & then. Pockets are perfect for water bottle.
I love that mine was free! I won it in Mocha Rouge when VB introduced the fall colors! I love that VB does the giveaways even though they are long shots.
I know this post is old, but I found it when I searched for "East West Tote". I am thinking of purchasing one and was curious if there were any opinions, on that tote, on your blog. My MIL has one and she LOVES it! I'm still just trying to figure out if it would fit my needs as an everyday purse.
I have one and I like it okay. I have only used it a few times, but it is nice that it isnt as deep as the others so you dont have to dig down to the bottom to find things. I think that the Vera Tote is my favorite of the smaller totes though.
