I never would have dreamed that I would be this busy when I moved to DC! Between work, meeting new people and just daily activities and errands I have been way busier than I thought that I would be. So it has been hard to get into a routine of blogging. I used to prefer to blog in the mornings (probably afternoons by the time East Coasters would read it). But now I get up early because I have to catch a shuttle to the metro to get to work. I get up at 6:30am to make sure I am on time, and getting up earlier just isn’t an option. And my nights are filling with a longer commute than I am used to plus there is so much to do in DC, so it is hard to get home and blog on a consistent basis. My new plan is to blog about 3 times a week…that seems doable! Plus I should be able to up the number of Vera Sightings that I have since I see them everywhere! I just feel like there are more people in general though and people can see me taking my stalker photos…creepy! So I haven’t been taking very many.
Well on to our main subject…Vera Bradley! Last week one of my Vera friends let me know that some of the Vera Bradley signature stores were having their Winter 2011 Preview! I couldn’t believe it, it seemed like they had just previewed the Fall line. So I immediately called the closest store to me to see if they were participating in the preview and sure enough they were! I hoped in the car and drove 30 minutes to Vera Bradley! When I got there the staff was wonderful! I met a couple of women who read the blog (Hi ladies!) and of course they knew what I was there to see, so they showed me where they had the Winter items. I was soooo excited to see them in person. The west coast stores never participated in the previews…not that it would have mattered since the closest one was two and a half hours away!
If you live near a VB store give them a call to see if they have the preview items, I believe it goes on for another week. Rumor is that only 8 stores are doing a preview, so hopefully one of them is the store near you! Happy Shopping!
