My first Large Duffel! I have never purchased a Large Duffel because I already owned an XL Duffel and figured whatever I would put in a Large I could just carry in an XL, but when they were on sale for $32, I just had to pick one up! I decided on Versailles, because I dont have anything in that color yet and I really love the blues in it. One of the neat things about the one that they sent me is that it has almost the same exact pattern placement on each side! I dont think that I have ever seen a large print bag with the same print on each side. You can see what I mean in the photos below. I also purchased a Pleated Tote in Pink Elephants! I only have a Coin Purse and Medium Bow Cosmetic in that print.
Here is the top of my duffel!
Here is one side
And here is the other! The prints is only a few inches off from the other side.

This corner got pretty bumped up, but at least it didnt open up.
This corner didnt hold up as well, YIKES!
Apparently someone, either at the front desk of my building or maybe at the post office tried to tape this corner shut for me...thanks for trying!
You cant really tell in this photo, but the top of the box was all bent it, you can kind of tell by the way the light reflects on the purple. And you can see the corners are pretty banged up. At least what was inside was fine, but if it had to travel any further I dont know if the one side of the box would have held up (at the top of the photo). All of my bags could have just slipped out. But they didnt and now I am the proud owner of a new Large Duffel and Pleated Tote.

My laptop just got an upgrade! I decided to pick up a Vera Bradley Under Cover Laptop Skin to protect the top of my laptop. I went with Lemon Parfait because the greys match the silver. I love it! I was a little worried that it might leave sticky stuff when I peel it off, but the woman at the store reassured me that it will come off clean...and when I was putting it on and saw the sticky side my worries went away.

On October 22 you will be able to pick up an East West Tote for just $39 (retail $52). This would be the perfect time to get one if you have been thinking about it.

It is starting to cool off here in DC which means that I need to start bracing for my first real winter! My dad always used to joke with me and my sister that we could never live anywhere with real weather...well Erin has made it through her first winter, so I am sure I will be fine too. I already picked up some Sorel snow boots and a nice warm jacket from LL Bean. But what I am most excited about is my new scarf! OhMyVera reader Jessica is making scarves to match all of our favorite Vera Bradley patterns! You can check them out here in her Etsy shop!
I picked one up to go with Mocha Rouge! It is so soft, I love it!
Here is a picture of my wearing my scarf! I should have grabbed my bag!

Last week my parents were in town and I while I did have to work a few days while they were here, I was also able to take a couple off days off to go be a tourist with them! There is still so much that I havent seen in DC. We were able to tour the White House and Capitol. We also were able to spend a day out at Mount Vernon, George Washington's home. I can't wait to see them again in December when I go back to California for Christmas! I really enjoyed having them here.
Here is a photo of me with my Happy Snails Bookbag at the US Capitol.

The Frill bags this season are going to have a new look. "Vera Bradley" will be printed on the bags in bold colors with a black background. It is kind of a fun look, but I generally dont buy things that have the brand name plastered on the front, so I dont think that these are really my style. I also think that a lot of people are going to miss having Frill be the inside print of the current colors.
Are you looking forward to the new Frill collection?
