I love Vera Bradley! They are the only bags that I will carry. Right before Christmas I asked you all to help me decide which of the new Spring patterns I should get. The winner was:
This is the bowler bag. I had never had this style before but I love it! It is so big (my bags have to be big enough for all the "normal" purse stuff and a bottle of water + a book. And this one zips all the way down on each side. Plenty of pockets too.
I also got the Zip Around wallet. Vera has come out with a new wallet this season but I decided to stick with my tried and true version. This is the 3rd of 4th Sip Around wallet that I have had and they are great.
I just wanted to show ya'll how much I truly love Vera so I have decided to post pics of all the ones that are still in my closet. This does not take into account the 6 that I sold at a yard sale last August.
This was one of my favorites ever. I loved the colors in this pattern but unfortunately it has my initials from before I was married so I can't really carry it anymore.
Basic Black Microfiber Backpack. I got this one from the Vera Bradley Clearance sale in Charlotte 2 years ago. Total cost: $12.00. I grabbed a few for birthday gifts and had them embroidered. (Sorry about the sideways picture... not sure what happened there).
Brown Microfiber. Also from the clearance sale. $9.00 for this one. It is a little smaller than I normally carry though.
Favorite one of all time. This is a blue jean bucket tote. Clearance sale: $12.00. My mom had to fight for this one. I carry this one in the summer.
The was the last one I bought before my new Spring patterns. I have had several in this handbag style. It is the perfect size for all my "junk".
Ah, see its fall twin. I love the burgundy in this one.
In case you haven't figured it out already the clearance sale was unbelievable. It was packed and you had to push and shove for stuff. (Luckily I am not above doing that) But the prices were crazy. I got $800 worth of retail for less than $80.00. I bought tons of gifts for people and still have several wallets and pajama shirts that I haven't given away yet. And Cheyenne, our beloved husky, got a lifetime of Vera Bradley dog collars and leashes. She was super excited.
