Vera Bradley Lime’s Up Bowler Bag
Nobody makes a classic bowler bag like Vera Bradley, and this time we are checking out the Lime’s Up color on this timeless handbag. Lime’s Up has been a very popular pattern with its light pastel colors and punch of floral serendipity.
We love the dimensions of this bag at 14 1/2" x 10 1/4" x 5" - 9 1/2" strap drop and it’s very easy to carry around on your shoulder all day. Of course the rolled handles make it extra comfortable as well, which you may need as this bag is surprisingly... [Read more of this review]

The Vera Bradley Holiday Tote
Just in time for Christmas is the Vera Bradley Holiday Tote. This is a limited edition bag, though, so don't expect to see very many available after the holidays have past. My biggest complaint with the bag is really in the name. Why not just call it the Vera Bradley "Christmas Tote"? I think some have already begun calling it by that name, but holiday tote is the official name for it. Over all, it's a lovely little bag that is purely symmetric. Measure at 14" by 14" it also has a removable... [Read more of this review]

Vera Bradley Curling Iron Covers Retired and New
Vera Bradley curling iron covers go way back and the company has been making them for years. Some of you may not know about them, but they are absolutely perfect for keeping the bathroom neat and tidy and it's just so very practical to have a safe place to keep that curling iron when it's not in use. How many of us have burned our arms because we forgot about that hot curling iron? Let's face it. It has happened to us all. Well perhaps it's time to invest in one of these nifty covers by Vera...

You might think you already have too many Christmas tree decorations, but once you check out these great Vera Bradley Christmas ornaments you may change your mind and think you need just a few more. It was a great idea for Vera Bradley to start making some Christmas decorations for the season and they have done very well so far with wonderful Christmas stockings as well.

Vera Bradley Bow Cosmetic Bags: Retired but Beloved
I am sure I'm not the only one who just loves the Vera Bradley bow cosmetic bags and who is also sad to see them go. You can still get a few from retail stores if they are secretly stashing any in the back for a rainy day, but Vera Bradley has stopped making these bags for good, or at least until we can convince them to start making them again. They are just so functional, and that kind of functionality is hard to find in a cosmetic bag these days. There are pockets on the inside that are... [Read more of this review]
Vera Bradley Made in China or United States?
Ever wondered why SOME Vera Bradley purses will say "Made in USA" and others will say "Made in China"? Well a few years ago you did not have to worry where that Vera Bradley bag was made. Fort Wayne Indiana was cranking out the purses and all of them were made in the good ole USA. But a couple years ago we started noticing some bags said "made in China" and questions were raised.
The excuse Vera Bradley gave us was that the demand for these fabric handbags was so much that they had to outsource... [Read more of this review]
Vera Bradley Mesa Red on Sale Here: Retired Pattern Flashback
This week's pattern flashback is Vera Bradley's infamous Mesa Red. Even though it is a retired pattern, it is simply a classic and a wonderful design that should be a part of anyone's Vera collection. This pattern had a two year career with VB, and that's not half bad considering some patterns are retired in a year. Mesa Red hit the scene in July of 2006 and was retired in July of 2008. This was actually my friend's very first pattern that came in the form of a hipster and it's still beloved... [Read more of this review]
Vera Bradley Frill in Purple Punch, Paprika, Imperial Toile and Symphony in Hue
The new Frill patterns have been released and are supposed to be in stores already but in some places there has been a delay in the shipping process. If you are not familiar with the Frill patterns they are the inside/out patterns of an existing one and they have a protective plastic over them for even easier cleaning. I am actually surprised Vera Bradley has not promoted them much, but the Frill patterns are a huge hit and getting more popular all the time. Some of the most popular are the...

5 Vera Bradley Patterns Being Retired in January of 2010
Well the Vera Bradley patterns for 2010 have been revealed and along with those new patterns (which not many seem to like by the way) some old favorites will be retired. I still think it's as ad decision by the company to retire such beloved patterns as these when they still sell like hot cakes, but they seem to just want to make room for the new stuff coming out.
There are five patterns that we know of so far that are going to be retired in January of 2010. This means these 5 patterns will not... [Read more of this review]
The Vera Bradley Pleated Tote is Here and on Sale!
The Vera Bradley pleated tote is one of the new collections to come out this year from the company. It's a great design that has been getting rave reviews, so maybe it's time you got a pleated tote for yourself. It's called the pleated tote for a very good reason, and you can see the pleats in the pictures below too. The size is one of the nicest things about the bag. Just how big is it? Well it's even bigger than Vera's original tote. Being 14 inches by 14 inches, you can see how convenient... [Read more of this review]
Vera Bradley Jasmine: Retired Pattern on Sale!
The Vera Bradley Jasmine pattern is a blast from the past. Some of you newer Vera Bradlet fans may not even recognize this style and may even think it's a "fake" when you first see it, but it's a genuine VB pattern with lots of class and flare. I am bringing it up today because it kind of reminds me of the new Imperial Toile, with a simply monochromatic design and high contrast. But while the Imperial Toile has a subtle brown background, the Jasmine has a rich dark background with white flowers... [Read more of this review]
Vera Bradley Reversible Totes on Sale: 2 Purses in One!
One of the newest designs from Vera Bradley is the reversible tote and it is getting a lot of heads turning. I just don't know why they didn't think of it sooner. I mean the interior patterns of the Vera Bradley designs are always so unique and beloved that many love those designs better than the exterior ones, so now you can have both. You simply turn the reversible tote inside out and "Bam!" you have a whole new purse. This is a new concept for the company and some of the patterns I have seen... [Read more of this review]
