Vera Bradley Disney Designs!

Somebody had a great marketing idea! Can't imagine how much they'll cost, though!

They do look cute!

Those are really cute. I'd be tempted, but a fabric bag is just not practical for me. Might as well give me a bag made out of a paper towel.

You know, that's what I thought, too. But I saw a travel bag a friend of mine had, and really liked it, and bought one for myself. It has been my carryon (well filled!) on 5 long vacations so far, and it looks brand new. They are really sturdy and really well made (and I am hard on bags!) I always said I'd never get sucked into Vera Bradley, but I have been!

I was so excited when I saw this earlier today. I love Vera Bradley. Much to the amusement of my male collegues, I carry a flowered Vera Bradley computer backpack. It is the greatest thing ever! My only bummer is it says they won't be available until fall

I went to the National VB Sale in Indiana in 2008. I got on a bus from the convention center where the sale was being held to go to the Fort Wayne store. On board we met one of the VB Marketing guys. I told him" you guys have to do a VB/Disney pattern--you don't realize the following you have from all us Disney girls". His response was "the licensing fee is way too expensive." I guess seeing the D&B bags flying off the shelf told the story. The VB bags are really cute....I could see one in orange and black for Halloween and green and red for Christmas...but again they didn't listen to me the first time...

Finally a Disney VB bag that I will enjoy for years. I will be at Disney 11/1 and my MIL has already called me to let me know she wants one (I sent her the link).

Way to go Vera!!

I would expect the prices to be consistent with their other bags.

I just don't care for the style of a "quilty" purse. Which is sad, because I love the print. But I would be interested some sort of cosmetic bag or something small I can put in my DLR Dooney & Burke bag.

What style do you have? I have the hipster and while I'll use it for the parks, I could use something more as a carryon. Looking for recommendations for a good size for that purpose!

Can't wait to see the new Disney designs in person! I am a purse junkie. This will only feed my problem.

I love these, especially the pink! Now I know what I'm getting myself for my birthday in the fall.

I have a Vera Bradley diaper bag that I use for a carryone. It has a zipper, lining on the inside, and great outside pockets. It's probably about 7-8 years old and has traveled around the world with me. When I get home, I throw it in the wash and it is ready for the next big trip.
