I'm not ashamed to admit it either! I have some purses, but don't seem to use them often... I do use a big tote for work, a wristlet, and a lot of small organizing-items, like make-up bags. I plan to use a Vera backpack in WDW. I have 2 kids and like to carry water bottles, sunscreen and snacks. I love how light they are, and that I can wash them. Very practical.

I tend to hit their sale section once or twice/year to buy teacher presents and stocking stuffers. Love the little notebooks and changepurses!

I just found the Clare in Happy Snails online at verabradley.com, if you're still interested. I love, love that pattern, I have my large duffel in that color! If all else fails, always visit the online store, they always have a better selection and great sale items!

Can't wait to use my new Clare next month! Just seems comfier to wear to me than the hipster, and like that it seems roomier... but am gonna miss the zipped pockets the hipster had!
When in doubt, get both! I love it! I'm glad you say that about Clare, because I also bought it to replace my hipster and was and still am a little doubtful that it can carry as much in the parks. It definitely feels a little bit more comfortable, like it shapes around your body a little better.

My VB addiction has just begun in the last month. I just ordered my 3rd bag within a month. My 1st was the Hipster in Limes Up, it's very pretty, love it. The other two have not arrived yet but they are Lizzy in Folkloric and the Mini Hipster in Rhythm and Blues. I couldn't resist the mini once they put them all on sale for $29.

Love this! I use my hanging organizer all the time! It came in handy when we were on our Disney cruise too!

As a certified Vera Bradley addict yes I do. I have that larger hanging organizer in two different prints. It's perfect for the room and unless I'm doing carry on only, I always carry one with me. I also have the mini hanging organizer and the Essentials Cosmetic organizer that I use if I'm doing carry on only. I also have the Three to Get Ready, the round Travel Cosmetics, Kiss & Make Up in two prints, slim case, three Trip Kits in different colors, clear seashell, Brush & Pencil, the retired Bow cosmetic, clear lotion bag, the retired clear cosmetic pouch in two colors, ten tech cases in different colors, and the small, medium, and large cosmetic bags in multiple colors. I have always had a weakness for cosmetic bags, so have them to match most of my bags.

wow! I think it's safe to say that you have a whole lot more than I do, I need to come shopping at your house!

great deal!

I was able to use my $20 birthday coupon at Vera Outlet plus a $20 coupon off $75 purchase (which they turned into a 20% coupon, they said it'd be better than the $20). The store was having an extra 20% off everything. I had $118 birthday money on me to my total for my new vera 21" expandable luggage was:

$31.88!!! No joke! I have the receipt!

That's an amazing deal

We didn't make it to the outlet in Orlando to use mine, I will have to use it online before the end of the month.

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.

Don't forget! This is the weekend for this deal! If I didn't just make a Vera purchase, I would definitely jump on this one.
