Restyled Mini Hipster for Fall 2012

A big thank you to the OhMyVera reader who sent in these photos of the restyled Mini Hipster!  I know some of you will be really happy since you were disappointed that it was retiring.  

Some of the updates are the strap is wider and adjustable.  The shape is more square than the last one.  The closure is a snap instead of Velco.  Not sure about what else might be different, guess we will have to wait to see one in person or until the description gets posted by Vera Bradley.

I would assume that it will be released with the other Fall 2012 bags on July 10th. (Remember, dorm items will be released June 28th)

Update: More photos!! 

And the description from April: New version is great -- has adjustable strap AND a flap on the front. At the top of the front flap is a zipper, which turns the flap part into a mini 'pouch'. Then, when you lift the flap, you see the clear plastic compartment that showcases your I.D., and a second pouch that holds many credit cards and your money -- in there is yet ANOTHER zipper which could hold coins, small items, etc. - Thanks April!!!

Everything seems to fit nicely, we shall see how it goes!

Happy Snails Bookbag at Baseball Game

Over the weekend I went to the Nationals game here in DC.  I took my bookbag because I rode my bike to the ballpark and had stuff I needed to carry.  It worked out great.  I put my water bootle in one side pocket, an apple in the other and my phone and camera went in the front pocket so I could easily get to them.  I had a great time at the game and the Nats won!! 

My friend Katie got me this fun pin and I had to add it to my bookbag for the game!

My friend sent me these photos of the amazing flower display that the Vera Bradley at Tysons Corner Center had leading up to Mother's Day!  So gorgeous!  Apparently all of the Vera Bradley stores had them as part of their partnership with Teleflora.

These particular flowers were done by Karin's Florist. <-- that link will take you to their Facebook photo album of the photos that they took of the display.
