Vera Bradley obsessed and proud of it!

I have found the bag I am going to be bringing to WDW in August - I am in love with Vera Bradley and how comfortable they are to carry around on a daily basis, let alone in the parks!

And I love their new colors for spring and summer, here's my new crossbody for the summer and for my trip- Clare in Camellia



and I have also purchased the Large Duffel in Happy Snails awhile back



Is anyone else on the VB bandwagon? If so, what do you use in the parks?

My daughter and I also love Vera!!

CUTE crossbody by the way!

I love that I can throw them in the washing machine and they wash up like a dream! They're comfortable, the straps don't dig in to my shoulder, they're not heavy, there are plenty of compartments, they really fit the bill perfectly!

I recently got my daughter the XL duffel for her birthday, in Boysenberry, for our upcoming trip to the World. It's perfect! It's HUGE though, didn't expect it to be this big, but really, it's a great size for a week long trip!!!

i brought the hipster bag when i went, and it was the BEST bag i have ever brought to disney! it is light to begin with, which makes it easy to cary, and a lot of deep pockets for whatever you need to put in there! my favorite bag! I am definitely bringing it when I go back in December!

I love Vera too!

I used to always carry a mini hipster to WDW, but a couple of years ago started going mostly bagless. I bought several pairs of cargo shorts and capris that I use only at WDW, so don't carry a bag at all. However, if I happen to wear a pair that don't have cargo pockets, I carry one of the Vera Bradley wristlets. I have alot of them, but prefer the All in One or Carry it All. I have about twenty of them. lol

For the flights down there I have the 21" rolling duffel in blue rhapsody with a small duffel and a large back pack to match, and several of the small and large duffels in different prints. I also have the garment bag in cupcake green with a small duffel to match. I also have Miller bags, a Weekender, Get Carried Away tote, several of the large backpacks, as well as alot of the older smaler backpacks. I have all three of the hanging organizers (the large one, the mini, and the Essentials). I have makeup bags coming out my ears (small x4, medium x4, large x2, bow, Three to Get Ready, Trip kits x4, Brush & Pencil x2, Kiss & Makeup x2, the big round travel one, a couple of the quart size clear ones, a larger clear plastic seashell, and a Kiss Me Twice lipstick case). I also have a couple of the pill boxes, a couple of Ditty bags, the clear lotion bag, two travel belts (fannypacks), slim case, sunglasses x2, sunglass cases, envelopes x2, several zip ID cases with matching lanyards, alot of tech cases, contact cases (use one for contacts and one to hold my MP3 player), calculator, pens, check book covers, lunch kit, lots of wallets and smaller purses, lots of coin purses, several Betsys, Angled totes, alot of Villagers, Vera, Pleated totes, and probably about twenty of the mini hipsters and about the same number of wristlets. Plus several of the full size hipsters. Yeah, I'm Vera obsessed. I really need to get rid of alot of it, but just can't seem to do it. I have a whole closet in a spare bedroom that has hanging organizers and is stuffed completely full of Vera Bradley.

Do you (or anyone else) know what patterns they have at the outlet right now? Thanks!

When I was there the first week of May they had all the patterns. They also had a section over in the left hand, back corner that was full of retired patterns on clearance. Plus everything in the store was like 20% off that day (including clearance items). I got the $68.00 angled tote in Simply Violet for like $23.00 and a $30.00 Double ID wristlet in Folkloric for like $14.00. If I hadn't been doing carry on only that trip I could have went wild in there that day. As it was, the friend I was with (who had also done carry on only) was laughing at me, asking how I was going to get the angled tote in my carry on. I told her I'd leave some clothes at WDW if I had to, but the Vera Bradley was getting on that plane somehow. Thank goodness those bags are cloth and fold fairly flat. Oh, they also had those cute VB caculators for like $4.00. I already had one, but for that price picked up a couple for both my daughter in laws.

My problem is that they sell them at a discounted price at our Px, it's very hard to stay away from them there. The camera bag I want is something like $12 off the regular price. I really have to stop after that...Really!

I think I joined your club- I'm the proud owner of a Miller bag, a large cosmetic bag, and a large duffel all in Folkloric.

I've been looking at the VB patterns for years- almost 3 years ago I purchased a used hipster off Ebay to use in Disney. I really prefer my Baggalini messenger and the hipster rarely gets used (it looks worn). But along the way I've gotten a small zip id case, a keychain, and an umbrella as gifts.

I never buy myself anything "frivolous" but there is a new VB store in the local mall (I never shop ). I got all 3 items for 40% off and they took an additional $20 off using a coupon so I feel like it was a "good price" and it beat hunting ebay ($107 for all 3 bags).

I'm so excited to use my new bags!!!

I'm just glad that I didn't "fall in love" with any of the new bedding that came out. I like the set I have now better (although it's showing some wear). They did come out with an updated mini hipster (after I just bought one). It now has a button snap instead of velcro and an adjustable strap, instead of one that you have to knot. Oh well. Oh, and I noticed some prices went up slightly like a quarter or a dollar...
