The DIS has cost me a bit of money over the years! lol I have purchased an Ergo baby carrier, a Chicco liteway stroller, and many other things over the years.

Most recently, it is VB! I used to think it was ugly or too expensive, but I have discovered some colors that I like and that they frequently have sales online.

I now own a laptop backpack in day & night. I don't have a lot of uses for it since it doesn't fit my laptop , but I plan to use it at the park and put diapers in the laptop section b/c they won't get bunched up.

I also have a saddle up in totally turquoise, a hipster in watercolor, a rachel in tea garden, a mini hipster in very berry paisley, a vera in plum petals, a miller bag in sittin in a tree, and flip flops in make me blush. Yes, I've gone a little crazy, but I got most of them 40-60% off! My husband has been shaking his head, but I rarely spend money on myself, so he's just teasing me.

I may exchange the miller b/c it's darker than I realized though. I really want a hipster in very berry paisley; I had one but returned it b/c I couldn't stomach that I'd paid full price for it. My dds picked out the watercolor and tea garden patterns. They aren't my favorite (very berry paisley is), but I don't hate them. My dds are constantly borrowing the purses. They love purses of any kind and have really jumped on the VB bandwagon with me! I use the Vera the most, as a diaper bag.

I'm going to be near the Chicago Premium Outlets soon, so I hope they have some very berry paisley in there!

I love VB too and I have found that the hipster is the perfect bag to use when you are in the parks. I've been every year since I was 4 and I'm 23 now. I can't believe the amount of Vera I see when I go to the 'World.

I can totally relate, although I'm a fairly new Diser and I've already bought several recommendations from others, it's a very bittersweet relationship I have with the Dis

Another VB fan here...

LOVE VB bags for the parks. My first one was the mini hipster then I got Lizzy...really loved this bag but wanted something just a tad bigger for our upcoming trip in August. Went to our VB outlet store last week and I purchased the hipster in "watercolor" along with a wallet to match. Between the outlet sale prices plus a birthday coupon I received, I got both items for a steal and can't wait to use it. My youngest DD (14) is a huge VB lover and always takes the small backpack and uses that as a purse. My oldest DD (17) who is a Coach lover is slowly coming to the dark side and already has quite a few different backpacks and totes. Having the outlet now so close to home is DANGEROUS...we have quite the collection of bags, totes and duffles and rarely go into the store without coming out with something. These bags are so worth every penny and do last and they wash very well too! I would love to invest in their luggage next

Ok, so we went to a Vera Bradley store in Atlanta on Saturday and I used my birthday gift card and got the Go Around Tote, which the girl told me is just the Vera turned inside out, it's awesome. I got it in the new pink color, can't remember off hand what the name is. It only took me about 20 minutes to choose, Dh said he was shocked...lol

Ahhh... I should not have opened this thread! I have been eyeballing these bags and just simply hadn't brought myself to by one yet. Now... I need to buy a lot of them. We are going to Disney in February. I was just telling my husband that we need to buy luggage before our trip because we don't have any (well, we do, kinda. He had a suitcase and I had one from when we were single) So, what all would I need to buy for a luggage collection? I have 2 kiddos that I need to pack for as well. I know I want a clare(park bag) and a weekender(carry-on). What size suitcases and how many should I get? I can't wait!

We drive, so I use the large duffel bag, most of the time, I use 2 of them, because I take alot of stuff, I believe this can also be used as a carry on. I also use my weekender. I have the Lizzy for a park bag and a backpack, depending on what I need to take for the day.

On Wednesdays they have special sales on line as well. Shipping is still $5 until July 2. Don't forget to shop VB thru ebates to get that extra $$ back. Little obsessed here too.... last year before our trip I got the large duffle, weekender to match my bowler, wallet and small cosmetic. Just purchased a squared away w/wallet, ereader sleeve (which ended up not being what I really was looking for) and tech case (again not what I was looking for) both which I have been trying to sell on ebay (got a great deal in blue lagoon..FYI)
Now I am looking on line now and I know that I won't be able to leave it without a purchase.... HELP

OH btw... the Villager has a removable bottom which I used all the time to hide money.... the envelopes that you get at the bank fits just right shhh

If you give your adress and e-mail at a Signature store, you will get a nice birthday card, this year I got the $20 off $20.

I get at least one e-mail a day from them with some kind of sale or special. Today, ther eare 34 styles on sale for 4 hours. I have to stay away. Although, I want the limited edition camera bag, it would be perfect for the parks.

lol... I told my husband I would try and stay away too. At least until I'm traveling near the VB outlet in Chicago soon... I'm really looking for Very Berry Paisley, though, and I don't know if they have it there. I'll probably buy something anyway, though...

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...
