Vera Bradley Seaport Stripe Collection Review With A HOT Giveaway

Vera Bradley. Just the name gets me excited! I think most moms would agree that the name alone says elegant and fun. If  you are not familiar with the name let me share with you a little about Very Bradley.

The Vera Bradley story is a testimony to the American Dream.
While on vacation in March of 1982, Patricia and Barbara were awaiting a flight in Atlanta when they noticed a definite lack of feminine-looking luggage. The longtime friends wasted no time in correcting this situation. Within weeks, these dynamic women had created a company, named after Barbara’s mother, capable of marketing and manufacturing their cleverly designed products. The demand for these unique handbags and luggage items has grown and so has Vera Bradley, which is now nationally and internationally recognized. For over 20 years, Vera Bradley has had a loyal following of customers who not only look forward to our lovely new fabrics and styles that are introduced each season, but who also appreciate the function and quality that is synonymous with our name. Located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Vera Bradley continues to remain steadfast in our commitment to excellent quality, exclusive designs and dependable customer service

Whatever you need for on the go you can find in a stylish desigh by Vera Bradley! There is no reason mom can’t look great all the time! And the prices are affordable! Check out these beautiful Vera Bradley pieces on my wish list. 


I was so excited to receive my very first Vera Bradly this week! I can not tell you how happy I was to tear open the big box and find my treasure inside! I received the Vera Bradley Carry All Tote in Red with White Stripe and matching Compact Turn Lock Wallet . These are a part of the new collection “Seaport Stripe”. It gives me the beachy feel. I love the red, white and blue with a nautical twist! It makes you want to soak up the sun by heading out to the beach or the lake.

Take a look at my treasures!


I am a very happy Mama!

The Carry All Tote has room for everything! There are 2 pockets on the outside that have hidden magnets. Then there are 2 slip pockets and one zipper pocket on the inside. The tote measures 16½” x 13″ x 8 ” with 10½” strap drop. The bottom has 4 silver “feet” which is wonderful when you set your bag down. I love the soft and quilted texture of this bag.

The Compact Turn Lock Wallet is just the right size! It includes  five card slots, an ID window and one bill compartment. Then you will find a zipper coin section on the back.

This tote and wallet is perfect for busy moms. YOu can toss everything you need in this tote! It is not big and bulky but it is big enough to fit everything! I can divide things into the little sections. The large pockets on the outside are perfect for papers and important documents that I need to get to quickly. With the hidden magnet closures everything is secure. And I love how easy it is to keep clean. My children were not allowed to touch my Vera! :) But if they somehow get their hands on it I know I can just wipe it with a damp cloth. It doesn’t get better than this!

I love the casual, preppy look that the Seaport Stripe Collection offers! As we approach spring and then summer it is time to change out those accessories and Very Bradley is the place to go! This is only one of several beautiful collections. Whatever your style they have a collection for you!
