Oh boy was this thread dangerous for me! LOL!!! I was already Vera Bradley obsessed! I had bought the bookbag in mocha rouge for our Disney trip last fall. I was very happy with my choice and still am. However after lurking on this thread I have decided to go ahead and purchase the hipster. I am so excited for my new bag. I am going to take both bags along with some little ones! I should be all set! So my husband hopes. I think that he would kill me if I decide that I need another Vera bag before leaving!!!

The lady sitting across and just behind me, mentioned how much she loved all my VB. I had used a large Vera Bradley backpack as my personal item. In the bottom of that I had placed a VB Trip kit that held two VB pill boxes, a VB slim case that held my Victoza injection pen, and two VB contact lens cases (one held my contacts and a small bottle of contact lens solution and the other held my tiny MP3 player). Also in that VB backpack I had two VB envelopes (one held my Kindle and the other trip paperwork). I also had a VB Zip ID and matching lanyard, a VB wristlet, a VB glasses case (that held my VB sunglasses, a pair of foldup reading glasses, and my regular glasses), a VB small makeup bag that held my chargers, then a VB tech case that held my small camera and cell phone.

It just so happened that on the flight home, that same lady was again on the same flight and this time sat right across the aisle from me. When she saw me, she said, "Oh I remember you from the flight last Saturday. You're the lady that had all the pretty Vera Bradley stuff".

haha, this is how I am too. On our trip in April I had my VB duffel and laptop case. Then in my duffel I had a few more pieces: sunglasses case, tech organizer (they don't make it anymore but I love it for keeping all my cords/chargers/batteries together), and a zip ID case for my ipod. Oh yeah, and I think I had my Clare bag in there too for the parks!

Yay!! My Vera bag finally came yesterday! I got a Get Carried Away tote and a matching ditty bag in Symphony in Hue. They are so bright and pretty. I can't wait to use them on my next Disney trip in just 43 days!

The new Ribbons pattern comes out tomorrow. It's the new breast cancer color. I may go check it out. Anyone else?

I want to, I love it, but I have no idea. My husband's company is closing at the end of the year, so I don't want to buy anything we don't need until he secures another one.

It's really pretty. I was going to order an E-reader cover but they were sold out online.

Vb

I, too, am a VB fan! I'm so upset that my darling "Java Blue" has retired, so I've moved on to "Watercolor", which is also retired, but still available online (which means it's MUCH cheaper!)/

Generally, for road trips, I take my large duffle and a pleated tote. Inside, I have the hanging toiletry case, and a medium cosmetic case. However, I find that the duffle can be difficult to fly with because it's pretty large and can get quite heavy.

Since I refuse to check luggage, I decided to invest in a good carry-on. The result? The VB Weekender! It's 18", which is only 4" shorter than the large duffle. It distributes the weight better because it is more structured - and bonus! - it has 4 large pockets on the inside, 2 large pockets on the outside, and a large zip compartment on the back. I also purchase the large cosmetic case. Finally, I went to Ebags and got some packing cubes, which have made organization a snap. (I did consider the VB Grand Traveler, which is essentially the same bag as the Weekender, but 22", rather than 18". Didn't see the point to purchasing a carry-on the same size as the large duffle....) Needless to say, I was still able to pack a week's worth of clothes for my Disney trip!

As far as a park bag, I don't carry one. My hubby carries a book bag, so I just keep my VB ID case with money, wallet, and park card in there, along with my small cosmetic case for First Aid/personal items.

LOVE VERA BRADLEY!!!

I went to the VB store around here today because I had my $20 half-birthday card to spend. I ended up getting the large cosmetic in Ribbons and a couple packs on binder clips for school (in Ribbons and Indigo Pop). I liked Ribbons a lot more than I thought I would-it is very cute.

While I personally do not own this specific Vera bag, I have a friend who does and it is her favorite to use for a carry on. It fits perfectly in the seat in front of you or the overhead bin. Hope this helps!

I used it as a carryon a few months ago and it's perfect. It fit in the overhead quite nicely and I could throw my purse in there as I walked through the airport. It is very big and I have also used it for a weekend away and it's perfect for that as well. I'm going away next weekend and plan on using my Get Carried Away as my suitcase.

Just bought the Double Zip backpack in Ribbons! I have a pinched nerve in my shoulder as well as some back problems and was looking for a small backpack to serve as my personal item when flying with a carry-on suitcase.

I also purchased a purse for my mom in Ribbons, and use a $30 off from retail me not.

I have been eyeing the VB stuff for a while now, but balked at the prices. Finally gave in & bought a wallet last week (turn lock in limes up)...just waiting on it to arrive!

My question is, how often does she retire patterns? Curious how often I should check back for sales!

I'm going on a trip this weekend that will include a stop at a VB outlet. Hopefully they'll have some of the pieces I have wanted at a price that I can afford!
