Happy Halloween From OhMyVera!

Happy Halloween!!!

Back in 2010 I was a Vera Bradley bag for Halloween.  My mom made the costume for me after I found some quilted material that looked pretty close to Katherine.  It it hard to se in this photo, but I have a purse strap hanging from shoulder to shoulder.  My friends got a pretty good kick out of it!

What are you going to be for Halloween this year?

Vera Bradley Boysenberry Luggage

Last Thursday my Vera Bradley luggage arrived!  I went down to pick up my package before work on Friday because I was expecting my luggage to arrive on Saturday and was excited to see that it was my luggage.  So I carried it upstairs and dropped it off.  My weekend was so crazy and then the storm came, so didn't have a chance to open it up until today.  

I am in love with this luggage!  I have been using the same red suitcase since 2001 and it is pretty worn out.  You can even see particle board at the bottom...yikes!  I was so excited when Vera Bradley had it 60% off, plus $25 off AND free shipping it was just too good of a deal to pass up!  Vera Bradley luggage has been on my wish list for quite a while and I am glad to finally have it!  And thanks to my parents for the 22" spinner...that is an early birthday present. 

I will have to take some pictures of the inside and what came with them when I get a chance.

A true testament to the American Dream, friends Patricia Miller and Barbara Bradley Baekgaard were traveling in March of 1982 when they came up with the idea to create feminine, fun accessories that are also practical. Within weeks, these dynamic women started selling floral cotton handbags out of their homes and named their new company Vera Bradley after Barbara's mother. Today, their idea lives on in their ever-popular brand of collectible quilted cotton handbags and accessories made from distinctive and colorful fabrics and trims that are beloved by women of all ages. QVC® is proud to present Vera Bradley Handbags & Accessories, the name synonymous with ladylike style.

Reader Questions - What is the best Vera Bradley product for storing by kids hair accessories?

I receive emails pretty regularly from OhMyVera! readers and most of them are questions, so I think that it would be fun to answer some of those questions on the blog.  I am sure if one person has a question there are others with the same question, plus you all can help provide answers in the comments if you have other ideas or comments. 

So today's question is: What is the best Vera Bradley product for storing my kids' hair accessories, including their headbands?

While Vera Bradley doesn't make anything in particular for storing hair accessories, I think there are some good options out there for storing them.  Here are my top five choices, in no particular order: 

Hatbox Cosmetic: This has hard sides so it wont flop at all while you are digging around the for the perfect hair tie. The large area would be great for headbands and there are some smaller zip pockets you could put hair ties or bobbie pins in. 

Home and Away Cosmetic: Like the Hatbox it has a large area that will work great for headbands.  You could use the smaller side pockets for smaller hair accessories. 

Large Cosmetic: This cosmetic bag is also large enough to hold headbands as well as your other hair accessories, although smaller items might get lost or tangled at the bottom of this larger cosmetic.

Ditty Bag: This is one of my go to bags, you really can pack just about anything in it.  Again, this one might be a little too large and smaller items might get lost in the bottom.  It will fit all of your accessories though!

Vera Bradley Vanity Box: This item is retired, but there are still some out there.  It was part of their Frill line that is made with the inside patterns from bags.  This would be perfect for storing hair accessories on your dresser or counter. 

Is the option you would use missing?  Leave a comment to share what you think!

Vera Bradley Kitchen Collection - What I Bought

 Last Thursday Vera Bradley launched their Kitchen collection, so I headed to the local mall to check it out.  I was excited to see Provencal since I recently decided that I think that I want Provencal Placemats and Fiesta Dinnerwarefor my dining set.  Hallmark and Vera Bradley were both part of the Sweet Treat promotion where you pull out a paper cookie from a cookie jar and you open it up to see what kind of discount you received.  Anywhere from $5-$50 off your purchase.  

First stop was Hallmark, where I drew a $5 off coupon.  I picked up a Provencal Tea Towel and a Caitlyn in Limes Up because it was 40% off.  Then I headed to Vera Bradley to pick up the rest of the stuff I wanted.  I bought the Oven Mitt set and a bunch of ornaments.  I got a Provencal ornament for myself and Provencal & English Rose for my mom.  I got a $25 off coupon at the Vera Bradley store! And as a nice little gift they were giving out recipe cards with recipes from Barbara and Patricia.  They were also asking at the register if I would like to round up my purchase to the nearest dollar to donate to the Vera Bradley Foundation, what a nice little way to make a difference this month.  They had information cards about the Foundation out at the register as well.  And last but not least, they had cookies from Cookie Cottage in all of the new colors, so I grabbed on in English Rose...yum! Check out all the photos below!

Starting off with the good stuff, here is what I picked up:

Vera Bradley Foundation handout, Cookie and Recipe Cards

Vera Bradley store!

Kitchen Display

More kitchen items


The store had a little bit of a different layout this time.  The bags are now arranged by 'story' so I heard. So baby bags are together, computer bags, etc.

I could have dumped the whole platter in my purse!  Took some will power to only take one :)
