Stylin’ and On The Move

photo (83)It’s a great time to pick up some fabulous Vera Bradley specials. Beginning today and running through September 11, you can purchase any Vera Bradley backpack and receive 50% off a Smartphone Wristlet. Here I am with Cocoa Moss, one of the hot new colors for fall. I love the way I can use the backpack in so many ways–as a backpack (obviously), as a purse or a tote. I stash my wristlet in here along with books, notebooks, tissues, and a bunch of other things that seem to collect over time. It’s big on style and so, so practical! But you can choose from any number of backpacks that suit your own style. We have the Campus Backpack, Double Zip Backpack, Backpack Tote, as well as the Backpack, all with unique features.

they also discounted the existing sale items to 40% off. That means any Dogwood, English Rose, or Canyon fabrics are now 40% off. They will go fast!
