I love Purses!!!

For those of you who don't know me in person... I AM A PURSE FIEND!
I must own... about 200 purses... no joke.
There was a time, before all the private school tuition started to really inflate, when I would literally buy a new purse a week.
Sometimes from Target... sometimes from Coach... it didn't matter... if I could stuff it with all my junk and it was cute... or purple... it was mine...
The boys used to tease me and say... "What kind of new purse did you buy this week Mom?"
when they were little...
Now... they ask... "So... uh... Mom... are we going to eat this week... or did you get a new purse instead?"... LOL
Truth be told, I haven't bought a new purse in almost a year.
That is.. until today.
HEY... shut up... I went a LONG time without a new one!
Ever heard of Vera Bradley? I fell in love with her purses about 5 years ago, when I was in New York and I saw a woman carrying one on 5th Ave. I literally stopped her in her tracks and asked her where she got the bag...
She was very sweet, and directed in the direction of my newfound Nirvana... The store she bought it from...
and that was it.. I was hooked.
Some of you may say they look like granny bags... but I don't care... I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them.
They are quilted... and luscious... and I own 4 of them now...
I pushed my Coach, and Vuitton and Pucci to the side, and have made room for many more Vera Bradleys in my future... and they are so much more affordable than those other brands...
Don't get me wrong... I have tons of $20 purses too, that I wear often... but these Vera's... I tend to stick with.
I'm a big girl... and I don't wear a lot of color in my wardrobe, if at all... so my accessories are where I get some color in... and Vera is right up my alley...
The reason for this post?
Because I bought 2 of them today...
I know.. I know.. I can't wear two at a time... but one was ON SALE!!!
Those are two words that feed my soul!!!
So below are the purses and the patterns I now own...

Saddle up in Purple Punch... LOVE!!!

Messenger in Hue... LOVE!!!
Just bought this one... Libby in Puccini... LOVE!!!
And this Mailbag in Meditteranean Blue... LOVE!!!
My name is Sandra... and I am a purse- a- holic...
Shhhhh! Bill hasn't seen the debit off our account yet!!!
I'm not in trouble yet!!!
(truth be told... he won't even care...)


  1. Very pretty! I love Vera Bradley and shop often on her website's sale page. Have a great weekend!

  2. Well I learned something new about you today! Me... I'm not too much into purses. I get one and use it until it starts falling apart. I don't like having to transfer all of my stuff back and forth from one purse to another. I lose stuff that way.

    Love the Libby in Puccini. Good choice!

    Happy Friday, hope you enjoy your weekend.

  3. That's so funny you are a purseaholic. I am just the opposite. I think I have four but usually only use the two. I don't like carrying a purse if I don't have to.

  4. Believe me.. I wish I wasn't a purse person... but I. just. can't. help. myself...

  5. So cute and just in time for spring!
