I have collected a few Vera Bradley items over the years and to this day each one is dear to my heart. Having owned these bags, I have a million great things to say about the products and the company, so I went out on a limb and asked if I could review them on my blog. To my surprise, they responded… and their answer was… yes!!
I was completely thrilled when I heard back from the lovely people at Vera Bradley. I was even more thrilled when I saw what they sent me (I didn’t know what they were sending – it was a total surprise, fun right?!) I swear I was 5 years old again on Christmas! (jumping up and down and all!)
So here is what I got in the mail: Everything Nice Tote, Penny Wise Wallet and the Umbrella all in the Folkloric design.
My first thoughts were, “such beautiful colors”, my second, “but wait it isn’t quilted”! I guess I must be naïve because in my mind, Vera Bradley was amazingly cute quilted luggage, purses and bags! But Vera Bradley is so much more! No longer is everything quilted! And they now have laptop sleeves, e-reader sleeves and even sunglasses! Let’s talk about the package:
Everything Nice Tote – practical and roomy!
- Vertical tote big enough to accommodate most 15″ laptops
- Front features a full zip pocket with Frill logo
- Inside, several pockets including three pen slots and a key clip
- Penny Wise Wallet – clutch-like, adorable, and feminine.
- Five card pockets, a large bill pocket and an ID window inside
- Zippered flap pocket inside
- Magnetic snap closure
Umbrella – compact and cute.
- One-touch open and close feature
- Umbrella stores in wrap-around snap closure and coordinating sleeve
- Shiny metal hardware and bungee wrist strap
- I immediately shuffled all of my old purse contents to my new Vera Bradley purse. I put my credit cards and IDs in my new wallet… and hoped for rain (so I could use the umbrella!!) 🙂
- After using the purse and wallet (still no rain) for about 2 weeks, I can tell you they are sturdy and hold up well. I have shoved them under the airplane seats, in the overhead bin and in the backseat of my car. I am kind of rough with my items!
These pieces are pure stunning Vera Bradley style! They make me want to go dancing in the rain. The vibrant colors are so cheery and perfect for spring! The girly and outstanding colors are just what I love! The purse is so versatile and roomy – enough to put a change of clothes in for a day trip or for the gym! The inside pockets are handy for my phone, lip gloss, etc. Also, the wallet is big enough it could also be used as a clutch. I am completely and utterly smitten with my Vera Bradley items.
