I don't know why but this made me laugh. No way would my husband consent to carrying one of my Vera Bradley bags. He calls them girly bags. You have yours trained right.

I can't wait to use my hipster in purple punch when we go in April.

I'm super excited to check out the outlet too! I told DH he can spend the day at the pool with the kids while I spend the day shopping....can't wait!!!

I've been waiting for a sale like this! $20 off $75 and free shipping over $100. Love how free shipping is calculated before the discount. And the Viva la Vera pattern was 60% off!

I really needed a laptop sleeve and case for chargers. So I ordered the laptop sleeve and a zip id case in Viva la Vera. Also got a three to get ready cosmetic bag (Viva la Vera) so I could store toiletries for Disney, a mini hipster (Doodle Daisy) for my mother, and a tech case in English Meadow for all my chargers! All of these were less than $90, free shipping included!

I'm still not sure if I could throw the bags in the washing machine, however. Anyone have any advice on cleaning them?

That's too funny. No, it was a family trip, and I shared a suitcase with the kids, and his stuff wouldn't fit, but there wasn't enough to warrant using another suitcase, so I grabbed the miller bag. There's no way he would carry that around himself. I carried it. The only time he touched it was when he was taking clothes out of it. He thinks they're girly too. But it is funny that the first time I used the bag it was for my DH.

Oh, I know! I filled my cart up with $144 worth of stuff and took it down to $124 and then decided to be good and not actually buy anything. I usually have my vacation money saved well in advance of our trip, but we had several things break this year, so I'm behind. I'm gonna just look until my absolute favorite colors go on sale.

Enjoy your bags! I love a good deal!

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

My DH use to call VB the ugly purse store He has warmed up to them now. He watches on QVC and teases me with beautiful on outside and the inside.

Yes, most, if not all VB bags are machine washable. I have washed many of mine. The ones with a cardboard bottom, have a way to remove that piece and it can be washed. I have never had any problem with the ones I washed and they come out looking good as new.

I got the Tech Case in English Meadow 2 weeks ago and I love it, it will keep all my electronic gadgets together and it will be great to have on our trips. I was using one of my VB cosmetic bags, but this is much better.

Okay, this is funny, I've only been into VB since May, when I got my first bag. But since then, I've noticed VB bags all over the place. It's kind of a game for my DDs and me. We spot someone with a bag and point it out and try to remember or guess what color and style it is.

Anyway, I just spotted two VB backpacks on Drop Dead Diva. (They are at a college.) One was Deco Daisy. I'm not sure about the other one... maybe Happy Snails. Product placement...

They have been used in many movies, two that come to mind are High School Musical 3 and 27 Dresses

Now see, I never noticed that b/c I wasn't into VB before.

So do you think this new hobo will work for a park bag? I looked at that bag on QVC but just wasn't sure. I might pull the trigger and order one though, I need a good option before our next trip. How's the organization? Is it huge when you wear it? The Hipster isn't quite enough, but I don't want a HUGE bag either.

Luckily, I didn't see anything that I couldn't live without...LOL. I have my heart set on the Camera bag (which is a limited edition item) and the Get Carried Away bag, then I have to stop, but I'm waiting on a bonus Dh is supposed to be getting before I buy them.

Thankfully nothing really caught my eye. I like the beach towels but can't justify spending the money..

Love anything cross body for the park.

We live by a VB outlet and I just stumbled upon a BOGO free event and ended up with the metropolitan and miller bag for $60. I really wanted a grand traveler but didn't need two of them, lol.

DH calls it my obsession.
