Vera Bradley

Did anyone get anything new from the Fall 2013 Vera Bradley line?

I'm just wondering if anyone else purchased something from the fall 2013 Vera Bradley line?

I purchased the Backpack Tote in Cocoa Moss so far.

I am thinking of getting a wristlet, too. I might get that in Heather.

I have been waiting for this release for a while and I must say I went a little nuts. I purchased the Convertible Crossbody bag in Lola and the All in One Crossbody that I plan on using as a wristlet. I also purchased the Student Agenda in Cocoa Moss with the matching Binder Clips. I ordered the new Click Pens in Heather and the Hair Elastics in Lola as well. With all that I qualified for the free lunch bag with $100.00 or more purchase and got the lunch bunch in Heather for my daughter that's starting Kindergarten in the fall. I really wanted to try the Pj's but was afraid they would be too long since I am pretty short. I'll have to check them out in person. Happy Vera shopping day!

Yes, I DID....{#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I got the travel tote which is exclusive to QVC in the brown multi and the purple multi. I love that tote. Then I went on VB.com and got the napkins, throw, and placemat in lola.

I got the TSV in both Heather and Cocoa Moss. I then zipped over to the website and got the Heather and Cocoa Moss "100 Handbag" which qualified me for the free lunch bag...got the Lunch Tote in Cocoa Moss. I HAVE to be done with Vera until November :)

A NEW pleated tote and Villager in 2 new colors Venetian Paisley and Canterbury Magenta will be coming November 7...So I have to wait until November for my next Vera purchase in that Venetian Paisley (left).

I really thought I was safe this release, but then Lola started growing on me in the last few days. The two way tote is one of my favorite styles, so I was planning on just that in Lola. Then Heather really popped out at me... a few minutes later, I started to fall for Cocoa Moss... And so I got the two way in Lola and Cocoa Moss. Also got the Backpack Tote in Cocoa Moss, but then switched to Heather. I really want the backpack tote in Lola, but realized I'm better off buying at a local store in order to pick pattern placement--I want one with more pinks/corals and less green on the front.

I think the last Vera pattern I really loved was Yellow Bird.......I'm just not into the flower-power 60's prints they've been bringing the last few years......loved the earlier prints that were not so BIG....have to skip a purchase again.

The Villager is coming back? I am thrilled! I hope they don't screw it up with restyling.

No. I am a confessed purse (all kinds) collector, and when we recently moved, I realized that my Vera bags take up the entire top shelf of one the closets in our new house. It's a good thing there's just the two of us. I think I'm done with Vera, although a local boutique in town occasionally has 25% off Vera sales. There is a new little bag that I would like to have in two colors to use when I travel.

If you bought something today, enjoy your new bag.

Yes, today at Dillards. Soft frame case for I phone 5 and mini hipster, both in Heather. Gift with that $75 purchase was composition book, also in Heather.

I got the TSV in all the new colors. At first I was just going to get it in the Cocoa Moss but then started liking the other 2 colors. I really like the design, I plan to wear it with the shoulder strap. I have arthritis all down my back & I have noticed carrying the Laura style bothers my back. I am hoping it won't be so bad using this new style. I am hoping so anyway. I also thought the TSV price was pretty reasonable.

I'm not buying any, but I LOVE the satchel bag with handles & shoulder strap. I like all 3 colors that are available.

Actually, if that olive green/brown/grey/white color bag (cocoa moss) didn't have white in it, I might have bought it. If it had burnt orange, plum or mustard color in it instead of white, I'd buy it for Autumn.

I actually bought all 3 TSVs lol!!! I really liked the Heather and ordered that early, then the Cocoa Moss looked wonderful on the models and I thought it might be a great Christmas gift for my SIL ....and then Lola really grew on me...the colors are fabulous!! The TSV price combined with EP made it a really good value! Congratulations QVC on a truly great TSV!! :)

I purchased the TSV in Lola, then made the mistake of visiting Vera.com. There I purchased the Laura bag in cocoa moss, the brand new bubble umbrella in cocoa moss and the side-by-side tote in twirly birds. I was able to get the lunch cooler bag for free due to the promotion they are currently running!

I'm a big fan of Dooney & Bourke also, but it seems my Vera bags always get the most compliments from women of all ages! Many thanks to the poster who shared the photos of the November releases! Something else to look forward to! {#emotions_dlg.tt1}

I got theTravel Bag with Cosmetic Case in Lola. It should be perfect for our trip to Disney to carry the gazillions of souvenirs that I'll have to bring back home!! LOL!!

What is the "100 Handbag"?? I'm liking these new upcoming totes. I am looking for a new VB tote, but have not found the perfect one yet. Hopefully one of these will fit the bill!

I also got the backpack tote. I like the shape of it and the way the straps to use as a backpack were situated.

Got the Lola.

For summer I have been using Glenna in tutti fruitti. Love that print for the summer!

QVC Debt--

The "100" handbag is kind of like a small (11x6x5) barell/duffel. The shape is sort of like a "speedy" but the straps actually can be worn over the shoulder. The size is deceiving...it can fit so much in it. I have several colors.

I was out of town, but still managed to order the TSV tote in the Heather. That bag has good reviews on the VB website so I'm looking forward to getting it.

I can't wait for the limited release of the Pleated Tote and Villager! Those are two great bags!

got the All in One Crossbody in Cocoa Moss; I love this tiny bag that holds my phone and wallet contents plus I can get a pen inside AND a slim lipstick like a Burts Bees brand lip balm. Perfect for going to the pool, running to the store, casino stops, and other crowded venues. I love the Cocoa Moss; it will go with just about all my neutral colors in clothing.

Sure did!

I got way too many items in heather; coin purse, saddle hipster, two way tote, umbrella, lunch sack, pocketpapers. and in lola i got a mini hipster, and coin purse...and after that manage to get two coin purses in La Neon Rose, and Olivia Pink.. Love the new fall line! been saving $$ for ages it seems for it, and for once I was actually able to purchase more than a few items. (usually some random high amount bill comes in lol)

I'm on the fence about Coca Moss.

No, since I am anxiously awaiting ALL reviews on the Fall line since Vera B. is using:

POLYURETHANE and not polyester fill. I read some reviews on the large duffel indicating the quality is "not there", and the bags are stiffer and not "quilty" as Spring 2013 and prior.

Any thoughts?

Although I would love to buy things in the new patterns, I wait a few months and buy them on sale for 40-50% off. I am fortunate to live near an outlet and check periodically to see what is there.

I made a trip on Friday and picked up a Mandy in Provencal. This will be my new fall bag! They have not had any Mandys in stock in months, so I was happy to score!

Did you buy the big bubble umbrella? How are you liking it?

I actually like if bags are stiffer and not super soft. Sometimes when I see on the street people with older Vera bags I dont like it. I dont know if they are softened by wash or that is how they used to make them. The older styles sometimes reminds me of pajamas, they look so soft, but that is not what i want to carry.

I did not.. I purchased the regular umbrella... the bubble umbrella is a bit much for me lol :)
