I don't think anyone was shocked about this retirement, but I think they're more surprised about how long it took this bag to go into retirement. Remember, this bag made its debut in Fall 2012!! That's it, one season. This bag was released in Ribbons, but it will not be made in Dogwood, or English Rose. I think Vera missed the mark on this one when they decided to use a magnet instead of a zipper. Most ladies on, "campus," like the security of a zipper closure.
With the number of different lunch bags, it was only a matter of time before Vera decided to retire one. I'm sure a new lunch bag will be released next Fall, just in time for the new school year.
I think this was the most shocking retirement. Many ladies, of all ages love this bag, and I hear they are very popular with the college crowd. I think when Vera retires something as loved as this item, they are probably revamping it for an upcoming release.
Again, Vera has a number of backpacks on the market, and I think this smaller version is probably less popular. I think it is so cute, and I've always wanted one, I just have no use for it. Maybe now I can think of something!!
To be honest, I've never given this wallet a second look. I usually am not interested in any wallet with a checkbook slot, but this wallet has places for pictures, and that's intriguing. Anyone own this wallet?
East West Tote
I have to say I was surprised by this one. I love my East West Tote, and I know a lot of people that do too. I can actually fit more in here than the standard tote. Hopefully they are just re-doing this one!!
I have never, not once seen anyone in public carrying this bag. It's very cute, but it does not seem functional for everyday use. It's also been brought to my attention that this bag does not have a hard base, so when you put anything in here the bag begins to sag.
I really want a lanyard, but with this chain you can hardly see any of the pattern!!
What were you most surprised by with these new additions to the retirement home?
It looks like the hatbox cosmetic will also be retired before the end of the year!!
