Vera Bradley Meet and Greet Recap

If you’re a regular reader around here then you know I recently had a meet and greet event at the Vera Bradley store on Long Island, NY. It was such a fun event and it was wonderful getting to meet some of you that day! I can’t thank you all enough for making it out to the event and hanging out with me for the day while we shopped! It was such a wonderful experience and I wanted to share it with all of you because I know many of you are not in the New York area.

Oh by the way…there might be picture overload but there were too many to not share!

The Vera Bradley brand has always been on my radar, although I have to admit, I never owned a Vera Bradley bag before. I’ve always gravitated towards the accessories like coffee tumblers and notebooks because of their bright fun patterns. Now that Vera Bradley has a leather collection that’s all changed though! I can’t say enough how much I am liking their new fall collection of leather and suede bags. The colors and patterns are a style I tend to go for.

I just couldn’t wait until the fall to start using this Carson Shoulder Bag. It feels like fall in New York already so close enough right?

Meeting everyone for the day was wonderful! Sometimes bloggers get stuck behind our computers all day and don’t really get to interact with our readers in person and it was nice being able to step away from the computer.

    I always browse the website because I like the fun prints. Never bought anything though because I’m not sure if a printed bag would go with anything I own. But that might now change after seeing the new leather and suede collection.

    Wow, I didn’t know that they now have a leather assortment. I do love their smaller pieces like you say, tumblers, notebooks etc. But I don’t own any of the bags. The leather has definitely gotten me curious however.

    What a fun event. I’m so glad the brand has come out with a leather edition. I wasn’t a huge fan of all the prints. I do love it in the luggage, tumblers, notebooks and large totes, but otherwise found it too overwhelming. The leather collection is right up my style alley.
