Yeah, I think I will wait until the next big sale. I tried to get it for $36 yesterday and I missed out on it. The color I want is $69 right now, and I am not willing to pay that much either, much less $92.

Thanks! Sounds like my kind of bag!!

Thanks!
I just went outside and took a picture of the Get Carried Away and also the matching Weekender. The long blue crossbody strap on the Weekender is alot longer than the shoulder strap on the Get Carried Away of course, but both will go over the shoulder. Let's see if I can figure out how to post a picture comparing them: (excuse the nosey dogs)

and I have also purchased the Large Duffel in Happy Snails awhile back



Is anyone else on the VB bandwagon? If so, what do you use in the parks?
I have that bag! I love it! I know it is to wear across your body, but I wear it like a fanny pack. I tired it out at a Six Flags park, works great.

Ahhhhhh that was very very helpful!!! I have to have fairly long straps on my totes (I have big arms) and it seems as though those are long enough for me!

Thanks so much for posting these pics!!!

My upper arms are a little on the large side and it was very comfortable and once something is in it, it will pull the handles down a little bit more.

Ok another question for all of you addicts!

Do you tend to matchy match everything or just get all different patterns??? There are so many patterns I love so I was thinking of doing one for my tote, one for my laptop, one for my e-reader, etc!!!

Just curious how everyone does it!!!

I get different patterns. I once read a post about someone else doing that too and calling it a 'bag of skittles'. I thought that was cute! I only have a duffel set that matches. And the new weekender and metropolitan in Limes Up to go with my black rolling luggage. Other than that, I like to mix and match. Too matchy matchy would make me crazy.

Picnic Blanket

Did everyone see the Picnic Blanket is on sale online only today for $35! Very tempting!!

I passed though, I figured it would drive me crazy to see it get dirty.

I get all different patterns for the same reason you mentioned-there are way too many cute designs to just pick one!

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 what it's worth: last year, on Labor Day, they had a huge sale. I got Christmas gifts for my daughter's teachers-- wristlets for some, then lunch bags when I remembered I needed some for the Religion teachers. Keep an eye out!

Oh, and my purse, wristlet (I use it as a wallet) and schoolbag are all VB!!

I have to admit -- I have an addiction to Vera Bradley! Here is my collection right now:

1 - Blue Rhapsody Large Duffel
2 - Blue Rhapsody Weekender bag (my favorite, awesome carry on)
4 - Blue Rhapsody Kindle Case
5 - Blue Rhapsode Backpack (amazing for Disney)
6 - Twirly Birds Navy Perfect Pocket Tote
7 - Mod Floral Blue Vera Tote
8 - Carnaby Hipster
9 - Carnaby Wallet
10 - Happy Snails Vera Tote
11 - Happy Snails all in one wristlet
12 - Mocha Rouge lunch bag

Tons of stationary, calculator, and lots of other bags.

Yes I have an addiction but I am ok with it!

I have different patterns, but I have to have a "match set" for whatever I buy if that makes sense?
For example, I bought an Alice bag in Blue Rhapsody, but had to have a wallet and checkbook cover in the same print - same with all of the purses I buy...lol

I tell DH it could be worse- it could be Coach bags..

Last year I bought a set of Mocha Rouge luggage with the Carried Away tote

Mine are all a mix of my favorite patterns. I do have some matching pieces (purse and wallet), but it's mostly mix and match.

I also have 2 Coach purses and 1 Mickey Dooney and Bourke.

I just have a purse/bag addiction, and have since I was about 3?
