We all know about the Little Black Dress, right? WELL. Allow me to introduce you to the Little Black BAG.
She’s cute as can be and functional, too, and she’s on sale TODAY ONLY – who knew?
I’m like Cindy Lou Who and am so very merry
to tell you about Dashing Deals from Vera Bradley!
OK OK, all Christmas rhymes aside…I had to pop in on a Sunday to let you know about Vera Bradley’s DASHING DEALS of the season! They’re in the thick of it now – a different deal is happening every single day, now through the 10th. Each day is a different “dashing deal” of a classic Vera Bradley staple or too-good-to-not-gift item, and today’s is g-o-o-d, let me tell you. I’m SO thrilled to be partnering with Vera Bradley today to introduce you to this chic crossbody.
Introducing, the Carryall Deluxe All Together Crossbody.
Originally $145, but on sale for $85 TODAY ONLY with code COMINGUPCROSSBODY. (!!!)
It also comes in the classiest cranberry color (“mulled wine“) and chicest caramel color (“classic mocha“) if you’ve already got a little black bag on your shelf. (Here they are! Which is your favorite?)
Now I know I don’t normally cut right to the chase like that (normally we chit chat a BIT more before WHAM BAM here’s a sale!), but again this deal is TODAY ONLY and SO good that I couldn’t wait a single second more to share it with you! It makes truly the perfect gift, whether she’s in college and needing a good bag for a night out, a young professional, 20-something, or 30-something who just needs to minimalize her purse (and life), or older than that looking to take off some shoulder weight from that too-heavy bag with too-much inside (looking at you, mom 😉 ).
I lovelovelove that it’s essentially a bigger wallet with a cross strap, so you can fit your cards, cash, and also your iPhone, a lip balm and keys and run out the door. No fluff, no unnecesary weight or extra baggage – just the simple stuff.
I’ve been sharing Vera Bradley with you for YEARS and for good reason – they’re one of my ride or die brands and have been since I got my very first Vera Bradley piece back in high school. It was one of the wristlets that fit your phone, and it was before iPhones were really popular – so it fit everyone’s slider phone or Razr to a tee. 😉 I remember it was what ALL the cool girls had – and I wanted one so badly. I saved up and bought the Very Berry print which was also the coolest then (but it’s classic – I still lovelovelove it to this day!), and it was what everyone had come Friday night football games to walk laps around the stadium during game time with your girlfriends. I packed a lunch every day in high school, too, and that lunch box? Also Vera Bradley.
Come graduation, my parents bought me a beautiful Vera Bradley backpack for college. It literally lasted me ALL FOUR YEARS of school, and I think gave out on, ironically, the very last day of classes. I wore it to death and filled it with too many books and my laptop and more, but it was always the most trustworthy, sturdy thing that was still pretty + feminine. (GIFT IDEA: If she’s waiting back to hear on early acceptance or early decision college admissions, this would be the sweetest congratulatory gift! OR, buy now to take advantage of the dashing deals + holiday sales, but keep on hand for when she hears back in the spring with where she’s headed next fall!)
In college I also got my first iconic large Vera Bradley duffel bag. And oh MAN, I could sing those praises forever. My first was also in the Very Berry paisley print, and I still have + use it to this day, and it looks and feels just as good and new as the day I got it – literally. I can’t believe it myself – and I wear it hard, using it as my carry-on on most flights because of how easily it flexes to fit places instead of automatically requiring overhead compartment space. I also bought a NEW Vera Bradley backpack that’s all-black with a chic pink monogram, for all of my grown-up travels; it fits my laptop, planners, cords and more while still perfectly fitting under the seat in front of me on planes. (YUP, Vera Bradley can monogram your pieces, too, or even create your own totally custom bag!!!!). Now I also have a second Vera Bradley duffel in a darker print for more festive fall/winter travels, as well as a hanging organizer for toiletries and a smaller weekender-style bag for quick trips. AND I’ve got a few purses and bags for everyday wear, including the mini Carson shoulder bag that I got last year, and this festive cherry red bag that I break out every single holiday season. (They’re also in my Gift Guide for the Best Things I Own that I would 100% Recommend as Gifts!)
Safe to say – I’m obsessed with Vera Bradley.
And the best part: they grow up with me. I never had a moment of feeling like I outgrew the brand; if anything, they just keep getting better + better and evolving stylistlically so that there are still classic styles that work for the girls in high school or college now, like I was, but also styles for the working woman or the mom on-the-go or the mother-in-law who already has everything.
I gifted my mom an iconic Vera tote last year which she loveloveloves, and I distinctly remember when my aunt was the very first person to ever introduce me to the brand probably a decade ago. They’re functional + practical while still being pretty and in-style, and they’re always playing around with the latest bag style, shape, or material (like denim, nylon, etc!) to create the perfect bag to fit your everyday life, which I lovelovelove.
