Just curious how everyone does it!!!
I like to get different patterns. I think some of the bags look better in some prints than others. And I like the variety for matching outfits and whatever mood I am in.

I've only been into Vera Bradley since May, when I bought my first bags for Mother's Day. So far, I buy based on what I like in style and color and what's on sale. So I have several different colors, but if I have a favorite, I might buy it again in a different style.

I was lucky enough to go to the Chicago Premium Outlets this week while I was traveling, so if anyone has any questions, let me know. I would say the prices are similar to what they have online, but while I was there, they were having a "take an additional 30% off" sale, so I really got some awesome deals!

My DDs were with me, so I let each of them pick out a bag. They love to borrow mine, and they asked if they had to borrow these. I said, how about this? These can be your bags, but I can borrow them from you! They liked that idea.

Anyway, I got a Side by side tote in Very Berry Paisley for $27.99 and an Angle tote in Purple Punch for $20.92 . My DDs picked out a Rachel in Mocha Rouge for $17.49; a Mandy in Twirly Birds Pink for $31.49; and a Shoot from the hip in Rosy Posies for $19.59!!!

I think it would be very dangerous for me to go to a VB outlet.

I am looking at getting the VB hipster to use in the parks this December. Its just my DS 5 and me going so i want to have hands free to hang on to him too. Do you think this bag is comfortable for all day wear? I want to carry camera, phone, tickets, cash etc.

I just got the Side by Side Tote in "Camelia". Ordered it online. It's bigger than I thought but I love it. I fell in love with the pattern as soon as I saw it. Much more understated than some of the bolder prints.

So I bought one of the new fleece throws last night in Paisley Meets Plaid. I love it-I really didn't need another blanket but it's so soft and big! The fall colors come out on Tuesday...anyone going to buy anything?

Definitely! I love using the hipster. It's so great just being able to throw it across your body and not have to carry anything.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

I recently bought the Clare in the OP for everyday wear, but before that I always had the hipster in several colors for everyday wear. The hipster is the most comfortable bag I own for everyday wear. It forms perfectly around your hip and it fits A LOT! My favorite VB bag, hands down!

What pattern is this VB hipster & how long ago did you purchase? I like the different multi-colors. Thanks!

I bought one at the outlet b/c of the price and the fact that it was in my favorite color (Very Berry Paisley). I hadn't planned on buying that style, but I've tried it out, and I really, really like it too! Of course, so far, I haven't met a VB bag I didn't like... lol

It is Symphony in Hue. I probably purchased about 2-3 years ago. It is still available. It is my go-to Disney bag!!

** looks like it may be on it's way out, since all items on the website are marked down.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

For anyone who is a teacher, my Vera bag is a wonderful bookbag!!! It has held up remarkably well for the past 2 years, and I'm certainly not gentle with it!
