I love the Happy Snails, just ordered a hipster in it last night. I went online to order a new color but ended up ordering it instead.

Wow this is a great thread! I can't help but to smile because I live very near Vera Bradley in Fort Wayne Indiana and every year they have an outlet sale in Fort Wayne at the Ft Wayne Coliseum. I didn't read thru all the pages of this thread to see if anyone mentioned it, but it is a great sale and you guys would be in heaven! You walk in and it is just tables and tables of all kinds, shapes sizes of Vera bags! I encourage you to come to it. It goes on in April every year. Good deals, but some not so good deals. I also know people who work at Vera and they have boxes of vera bags by the time clock and you can just take one if you want to whenever you want to. Now wouldn't that be nice!

Yes, after "test driving" it for a week I think that it will work for me as a park bag. Inside, it has 4 internal open pockets (2 per side) and a zipper pocket on the outside front just above the smocking. If you LOVE inside zipper organization you might not like it, but I am ok with it.

It is wider across (15 inches) than my mailbag but shorter in length, but most important it doesn't have the mailbag flap (it is a zip top) that I found annoying in the parks after a day or so, so I see it as a plus.

It is easily convertible from low to high crossbody or hobo style - and I am short and not a skinny minnie so I appreciate the variety of where it will "hit" on my body depending on outfit/need. If you are super petite and/or slim you might consider this a "big bag". It is 15 inches (w) by 11 inches (H).

But like I said if you really love inside zipper pockets - none in this one - important to note. Also, I LOVE the Paisley Meets Plaid - I was worried it would be 'too much' but I am glad I broke from the blue.

Does anyone have a Bali Blue "Carry It All" wristlet they would like to part with? My mom has discovered she likes this no longer available pattern and I can't find one anywhere!!!

Thanks!

I don't think the Carry It All came in Bali Blue...that is one of the newer styles and Bali Blue (one of my favorite patterns!) retired a few years ago.

If anyone is in the Midwest, they are opening an outlet at the Lighthouse Premium Outlets.

add me to the list of Vera addicts!! I have entirely too many, but I just can't help myself!! Actually my step daughter started me on the whole VB thing. She asked for one for Christmas a few years ago and I gave her a look of confusion and said "You mean those quilted bags sold at Crabtree and Evelyn stores?" I had no clue why a middle schooler would want such a thing. She didn't know what I was talking about, but she knew what SHE was talking about. I had no idea that VB had revamped their style and gotten away from the muted, dated colors and prints and had gone VIBRANT.

I am currently fighting with myself over wanting to purchase a new backpack in Indigo Pop!! I know I don't need one, but I WANT one. My practical side tends to shout louder than the impulsive side.

although impulsive side pointed out that I'm starting law school in the fall and I will need a snappy new backpack to get me going...right?
