Vera Bradley Winter 2012 Sneak Peek

Today we were all treated to a sneak peak at all of the new patterns and styles coming out on November 2.  I for one can not wait to see all of these in stores, and I know plenty of you are as anxious as I am. 

New Colors
English Rose
(This one came out in September, but it's still a Winter 2012 color)
New Styles
Two Way Tote
This is the new bag I am most excited about!! The fact that it's a tote and I can wear it across my body, OMG!! 

This looks like a great handbag.  I love the long straps, but I'm wondering how it closes.  I can see the flap opens up, but is there a zipper, or magnet?
This is the number one new style I hear ladies talking about.  I think this bag is going to be a big seller!!  It kind of reminds me of the pleated tote a little, and I do love my zippers.
I'm really liking this bag.  This style was in the Vera Vera microfiber collection a few seasons ago, as the Top Handle Duffel.  It looks like a great little handbag, so this might be added to my list. ;-)
Mini Chain Bag
One of my friends has been waiting on this bag since we found out about it.  The strap is actually quite long, 53".  That's a crossbody for me, but it's unclear whether or not it's adjustable.  This would be a great bag for going out or the lady who loves to carry a few things.
Little Hipster
I'm excited to see this beauty in person.  I'm a huge fan of the Hipster, but the Mini Hipster seems to be a little too small for me.  This one could be just right!!
Barbara Frame Bag
This bag is part of the new line with leather trim.  I'm personally not into any of these items, but I know several ladies who are very interested in grabbing a few of these.
Patricia Crossbody Bag
Another leather trimmed bag.  Anyone going to pick this up?
Anniversary Wristlet
From the picture this appears to be the Super Smart Wristlet with leather.  There is no picture of the inside yet.
Shimmer Evening Bag
Too cute!!  This would make a great holiday gift.
Shimmer Wristlet
I'm kind of bummed that these shimmer items only come in Dogwood, but they are still adorable.
Jewelry Folio
Most of the time I have a pretty good base of what's coming out, but I had no clue about this one.  I'm actually intrigued because this would be perfect for me.
Here's the inside.  I'm worried this might just be another take on the hanging organizer, and with smaller jewelry you really need the smaller compartments.
Special Holiday Items
Keepsakes Box
Great gift idea!!  If you need a little something for the ladies in your office, or maybe your neighbor, I don't see where you could go wrong with this.
Sweet Nothings
The online description says you could use this for soap, or your earrings.  I'm wondering how small this actually is. 
Photo Frame
I am getting this!!  I've always wanted a Vera frame, and I will not let this one pass me by!!
Photo Ornament Set
I don't see why you would only have to use these for Christmas.  These would be cute just on the walls around the house.
Kitty Keychain
So cute!!  I have discovered that Vera keychains sell out super fast, so if you want this, grab it while you can.
Scottie Keychain
I actually have a schnauzer, but this looks just like him, and I really really want it.
I have been wanting this forever!!  I hope someone gets this for me for Christmas, wink wink!!
My Shopping List for November 2
Two Way Tote in Provencal
You already know I love love love Provencal, and I've been wanting a bigger bag, because my small Provencal bag is not something I can use everyday.  I've been planning this one for awhile.
Wristlet in English Rose
This print has really grown on me, and I wanted something else with a brown background, so I think this will be perfect.
I'm hoping to stick to my list, but we all know that probably won't happen, lol.  I'll let you know what I end up getting!!
What are you most excited about?


  1. I want lots and lots of Dogwood. And a throw blanket in English Rose.

  2. The things I'm most excited about are the Two Way Tote, Glenna, and Little Hipster. The Glenna looks cute, but I'd have to see it in person to decide. Do you know if the Two Way Tote has a zipper top?

  3. Annie-I just can't get into Dogwood. I'm hoping seeing it in person will change my mind. I'm thinking about handing out blankets for Christmas because I love mine so much.

    Molly-I can't even tell you how long I've been waiting for this two way tote. I have to admit, the Glenna is starting to grow on me. The two way tote does not have a zipper, it has a magnet, but I do not see this being a problem.

  4. I love your blog and all things vera!
