Vera Bradley Event
Recently I was invited to the Vera Bradley showroom in NYC. The offices were adorned with colorful wallpaper and had a total feminine feel. It seemed like a fun place to go to work everyday! I was shown around by a Vera Bradley representative explaining a little about the company and their upcoming fall collection. It was so interesting to learn about the company's evolution over the past few years and hear about their plans and goals for the future. The Vera rep began by showing me the company's staple pieces consisting of various bag structures decorated in their classic prints.
She proceeded to show me their Collegiate line which is currently available for 75 Universities. I was told the back to school season is massive for Vera Bradley!
Lastly, I was shown the new Fall 2017 collection to hit stores in a couple of months. The Fall collection seemed like a slight departure from the usual collections you see coming from the brand. I was told they are heading in a modern direction which explained the sleek leather, solid colors, and simple hardware.
They served some delicious treats including mini donuts, tea sandwiches, and fresh juice. Fashion and food? Yes, please!
This collection is perfect for all women and can be specialized based on your personal style. Vera Bradley is selling beautifully embellished, detachable bag handles for customization to any purse!
I also got to try on some beautiful bracelets from the brand which can be seen in the first photo as well as below. I loved the pieces because they are perfect for layering.
I had an image in my mind of what types of products Vera Bradley sells. I was unaware of how trendy and modern the brand has become while still being able to keep their brand DNA. I was very impressed and loved many of their items. Some of my favorite included their colorful luggage pieces, packing cubes, cozy blankets, makeup cases, robes, and espadrilles.
I left with some goodies that I am super excited about! I was gifted a pair of flip-flops, two makeup bags, a key chain change purse, and a tote bag which I have linked below. The sandals are perfect for summer and very comfortable! I can never have enough makeup bags, so I was very excited to receive these. The clear bag is perfect for traveling or going to the beach and makes finding your items so easy. The tote bag is spacious and holds a lot. I love the fun and bright pattern!
