I think they are hideous. Way too much going on. And they are too pricey for me. I don’t understand most things people buy, however. Like I don’t get how someone can spend $400 on a Coach purse when I got mine for $20 bucks and its lasted me over a year.

My name is littlemisst08, and I am a recovering vera bradley lover…

Seriously, they’re all the same after a while, and don’t hold up very well. I also had an awakening when I realized my 12 year old sister liked vera bradley, as well as the 50 year old ladies in my office. I decided to look like a young professional, instead, and invested in one fabulous Kate Spade bag.

I love vera! My diaperbag is a vera tote. 

I have to say, it all depends on the print, some are just awful.

I normally always hated Vera Bradley, but then I ended up getting one of their huge totes for weekend trips.  I still hate most of them, but I love my one bag.  I dont ever plan on getting anythign else though.

I think they are cute but outrageously over priced, especially since they are made out of cheap material and will most definitely not hold up as well as other bags. Lately I haven’t really liked any of the patterns though. They are all starting to look the same.

I think they’re mostly unfashionable and way overpriced, but some of the duffels are cute.

They’re hideous. It looks like someone took a comforter and made a bag out of it. The patterns are awful too. No excuse to have one when there are so many cute bag options out there.

I have a purse that I LOVE for teaching, and I got it for $20 (thank you, coupon!). Seriously this bag has held up and taken such a beating these last two years, it is washable, and can hold anything I need to bring home at the end of the day.

That being said, this is not a purse I use otherwise, just to work. Some of the patterns are super cute, but lately they are just awful..

I have mixed feelings. I won’t carry a Vera Bradley purse as my everyday bag. My everyday bag currently is a plain black Tory Burch bag. However I fo like Vera Bradley for accessories. I have a cover for my Nook, an umbrella, a lunch bag and a few makeup bags that I use often! Also for those that do like Vera Bradley; get on their mailing list! My birthday is this month (tomorrow!) and I was sent a $20 coupon to use online with no minimum purchase required. I think $20 is pretty generous as far as birthday coupons go.

I would never carry a Vera purse but I have a couple duffels that are good for short trips and some make-up bags. I’ve never bought anything full price.

I don’t care for them. Some of the patterns are fine, others are hideous. I think they’re way overpriced for what they are, and my mom loves them. Maybe I just don’t like them because she does.
