I splurged this weekend. I was at the mall and walked by the Vera Bradley store. I have never been in a Vera Bradley store in my life. I've seen the bags and accessories in other stores, but I was really never interested in them. But this time, the store just kind of sucked me in. Like a tractor beam. And as my husband says, sometimes the only way to disengage the tractor beam is with a credit card. Hmmm.
Often I walk around stores and just get overwhelmed because I want everything, so I end up leaving without getting a thing. But I kind of gravitated to one and I found myself with this in my hands
And then, oddly enough, I found the matching wallet.
BTW the purse is the Julia bag, the pattern is called Sittin' In a Tree. Can you see the little birds in the pattern?
I took my new purse and wallet to church yesterday, and then realized I was wearing a Vera Wang top from Kohl's. So it was a totally Vera day.
Now I feel like I am a little more ready for spring. C'mon c'mon c'mon Spring! We are patiently waiting!
While visiting the blog of my friend Brenda at Acorn Quilts (and if you like the shabby chic and cottage look, you will love Brenda's site- pop on over for a visit right now!) I found this blog called (in)courage- an encouraging and thoughtful blog for women. A good way to start your week.
