Things I Heart: The Vera Edition

So... it is no secret that I heart Vera... 

Bradley that is...

Her colors, her homespun quilty-ness, her pockets... She just gets me.

So, I thought I'd share some of my favorite bags my gal Vera has out there.

5. The tote

The basic tote is one of my favorite must haves. I love that I can throw anything in there... from a bottle of diet coke (shhh!), to a GOODe book, to a change of clothes for the monkey.

4. Frill A+ Tote

I just love this shiny side of Vera. I was so lucky to actually win the bag pictured above in a drawing the last time I was in Purse Strings! It felt like Christmas!!! I was sooo excited that she was frill and a tote to boot!

3. Alice
I don't actually own an Alice, but she had me at hello. I LOVE her latch and think we'd be great pals one day.

2. Crossroads Zippidy Tote

I love this traditional/frill hybrid bag. It has an awesome pocket in front that is PERFECT for my phone which allows me to easily find it (miracle for me). Zippidy is a little wider tote and I just LOVE it. I also love that she is a limited "crossroads" bag that I have been told they make fewer of... makes her a little more special ;)

1. Clutch

My all time FAVORITE Vera is technically a wallet--my clutch(es). 

PLEASE Vera--never discontinue this style, k. 

I am in love with this double sided wallet that is little enough to be a wallet, but big enough to clutch and go as a purse as needed. 

For us "big purse" gals, she is the perfect solution for when you just want to grab your wallet to go in a restaurant and not take big bertha in with ya.

So there ya have it... 5 Veras I heart. ( I also heart my Mesa Red Diaper Bag and Mesa Red Maggie Purse, but both are retired. ;) )

Do you have a Vera love? Or do you prefer another brand bag?
