I don't know about y'all, but growing up all I carried was Vera Bradley. My backpack. My purse. My makeup case. My lunch bag. Everything was Vera Bradley.
It was all about the latest and greatest print. The quilt fabric was easy to wash and take care of. I probably had two different pattern sets and owned just about every piece within each collection.
As I got older though, I tended to shift away from Vera Bradley. While I still carried the overnight bag on trips, and still laid out on a Vera beach towel, I had pretty much retired all my old pieces. The quilted pieces just didn't seem very post-grad to me.
That's when I was introduced to the new Vera Bradley at this year's Southern Blog Society Conference. Now before some of you freak out, they still carry all their basic items for which they're known for.
Recently they have introduced a new line of products, made from different types of materials. Think leather clutches, bags and accessories. I love how Vera still incorporates their signature quilted pattern, like on this clutch.
Quilted Harper Clutch (c/o) // Sunglasses (c/o) // LOFT Dress // Target Sandals (out of stock) // Round Cut Gem Bracelet
I've carried the Quilted Harper Clutch several times since receiving it, and let me tell you. Everyone is shocked that it's Vera! Shocked, in a good way of course!
Another one of my favorite pieces to carry has been the Marrakesh Beads Tote Bag. I haven't stopped carrying it since bringing it home with me from SBScon. I use it as my daily work tote.
It's perfect for carrying all my necessities, lunch, and makeup for touching up after work before happy hour.
I also love the Slim Zip Wristlet, in the same Marrakesh Beads print. I use it for all my credit cards, rewards cards, checkbook, etc. I can easily throw it in my tote or take it out and throw in another bag.
