Vera Bradley

May 25, 2012

I've been loving Vera Bradley since I was in Kindergarden.  That's when my mom started her collection.  I started my own collection when I was a senior in high school.  Most of them I have kept (a few I have sold because I didn't use them, my pack pack purse.  Nobody uses those anymore.  ha!)

Anyway, I have a lot of items but I like to mix and match my patterns.  I don't think they have to always match and while I don't usually like Vera for purses (a bit to loud for every day use in my opionion) I do like them for luggage and purse accessories.

I recently bought a new wallet (Turn Lock Wallet) and the small cosmetic bag.  I had needed these two items for awhile!

Several of these were gifts so I didn't always get to pick my colors.

I have two over night bags.  The miller bag and the small duffle.  (High school graduation gifts)

A monogrammed garment bag that matches Jonathan's luggage since his is red.  A few other red peices.  We use those when we fly so they all match and are easy to spot.  These were all wedding gifts picked out specifically to match for our honeymoon.

I have some smaller travel accessories.  Another small cosmetic bag, the travel cosmetic, and large cosmetic.  I feel like I'm forgetting some...

I still want a large duffle, across the body purse, planner, passport cover, umbrella (had one and I broke it), curling iron cover, beach towel...I think that's it.

So, do you like all your pieces to match or do you not really care?  What is your favorite pattern?

I love Vera! And I have about 6 (maybe more) different patterns. It's so much easier to mix patterns with Vera because by the time I get a few things in one pattern, the pattern is retired and I have to pick a new one. I have the large duffle (which I LOVE) and I have a rolling suitcase which is my favorite.

And I have the turnlock wallet and it's the best wallet I've ever used. :) I love your red garmet bag! I want one of those :)

If you ever get a chance, go to the Vera outlet sale in Indiana. Its always held in mid-April and the prices can't be beat! I've gone the last 2 years and it is a huge room full of all Vera everything!

I'm matchy matchy with my Vera! It may just be because I'm obsessed with that print!

I have a ton of Vera as well! In high school my mom worked at a boutique that sold vera so I started back then as well! I love all different patterns so I love to mix and match. One of my favorite pieces is my laptop case. I used it teaching a ton and it's really durable! I have totes, luggage, lunch boxes. Love vera! :-)

I haven't really ever had much Vera but lately I have been loving it. I have found a few patterns I really like but I think I might have to buy a few pieces this summer!!

I love Vera Bradley too! Mine don't all match either. One of my students gave me Vera jumbo binder clips, since she knows I'm obsessed. Haha.

I love Vera! My aunt gave me a bag in it for my birthday one year and it was downhill from there. I do have set patterns but I like to mix and match!
