I had no idea my DD wanted one until we were in the SOG gift shop last week and she pointed out the Vera Bradley purses and said she wanted one (until she saw the price--she would've had to spend her own money). So I'm looking at the sale ones on their website for a Christmas present and I have no idea which one to get her, I asked her what she'd carry in it and she said "my wallet and stuff" so not much help there, I'm guessing just some personal hygeine items. Can anyone help me? What is a good size for that age (she'll be in 8th grade, middle school)? Also, is one pattern more popular than others? I'd really rather stick to the sale, I was looking at the meditarranean blue, raspberry fizz, or pinwheel pink. She also mentioned wanting a lunch box this year (I guess kids in her school still bring their lunch), does the Vera Bradley one hold much? And most importantly, does anyone have a code? TIA .
