The Fall 2010 colors are out and I didn’t go wild in the store! It is amazing!
On Friday morning I woke up at Amber’s house and was ready to go! Our friends Alissa and Tory met up with us and we were on our way. Roseville is just outside Sacramento, maybe 20 minutes.
This has to be the most amazing part of the day – We pulled into the parking spot and I was ready to jump out of the car. When I opened the car door, guess what was sitting there??? A $20 bill! Woo Hoo! My lucky day!
We went inside and we all started looking at all of the new stuff. Amber was drawn to the Barcelona and I wasn’t really drawn to any of it. I was kind of surprised. I looked at the new styles, but I didn’t feel like I HAD to have any of them. I really like the Julia, but I really am more of a big purse kind of person. I like to be able to open my purse and throw everything in. So I thought that I would like the Side by Side, but I don’t really like how the pockets look like they stick out. I knew I wanted a purple bag, so I started checking out what I thought would be good in Simply Violet. (I take some time to warm up to colors I guess)
I was going to get an Angle Tote in Simply Violet, but I also had to make an exchange for my Loves Me Alice. My Alice was tearing a little bit on the corner where the metal was. I have only used it a handful of times and I am not that rough with my bags. So the woman suggested trying a different color to see if the wearing wouldn’t show up as much. Plus in the newer colors the metal doesn’t have such defined edges, they kind of rolled them more. Hard to describe, but if you compare the first set that came out with the new color ones, you will see what I am talking about. So I decided to get an Alice in Simply Violet. But I still wanted a Loves Me bag, so I decided to get an Angle Tote in that color.
I had to pick something up in a new color, so I decided that I really wanted an Emma (Again, I guess it just takes me a while to warm up to the new designs) So I got an Emma in Very Berry Paisley. It is so cute! I love it!!!
We spent over an hour and a half in the store! We were having them get us bags in different colors, trying all sorts of bags, checking out the new ones (we thought we picked up a Metropolitan with a defect, turns out that hole is so that you could slide it on the handles of your suitcase! Haha) and just chatting, we had a lot of catching up to do.
Amber got a Cooler bag in Barcelona and a Zip Id Case in Very Berry Paisley. Tory made her first ever Vera Bradley purchases! She picked up a Lanyard in Very Berry Paisley and a Small Cosmetic bag in Hope Garden. Alissa had way too much self-control and ended up not getting anything. Way to go Alissa!
We had such a great time! I loved looking at all of the new bags. The women were so friendly and helpful! The new Frill is great! So far I only have one piece, but sooner or later I might have to pick up a couple of things. I really like some of the prints! I took a bunch of pictures, so I will post more of them tomorrow!
