Vera Bradley Survey:Spring 2013 New Styles

I was invited to take a Vera Bradley survey yesterday and I was thrilled.  I've only had the chance to participate in these once, and it was so long ago I don't even remember what it was about, so you can imagine how I felt yesterday.  I really wasn't sure what to expect, I thought it was just going to be a guessing game when I saw the title, but then new spring styles start popping up so I grabbed my phone to share with all you Vera lovers out there!!

When I saw this first slide, I figured it would be a guessing game about prices.

Instructions on how to play.

They give you a little information  on the style and then you can pick your price and how you feel about it.  The choices were hate it, don't like it, neutral, like it and love it.  There's also a box at the top to leave whatever type of comment you want about the item.  There were also several current styles in the survey, but I am only sharing the new spring ones, and the one above for reference.  (I was kind of bummed that every bag was shown in Va Va Bloom, I was hoping for a spring color, but oh well.)

Convertible Crossbody
I knew as soon as I saw this style pop up, I was in for a treat, because I have already seen the spring source book.  This style reminds me of the new Two Way Tote, in that it has handles and a crossbody feature.

Petite Tote
From what I've heard and read, this is most likely the replacement for the soon to be retired East West Tote.  I am very intrigued by this bag, and best of all, ZIPPER!!

Tablet Hipster
For all your lovely ladies with iPads, here's another way to tote your precious around.

Little Flap Hipster
Another new hipster, but I have no complaints, keep them coming Vera!!  I've seen an inside pic of this beauty, and that entire bag flips open to more organizational pockets.  I would like to see a size comparison with the other Hipsters.

Laptop Backpack
So many people were upset when I relayed the Laptop Backpack was going to be retired, but never fear, the new version is almost here!!  

Another restyle, this one just looks like they've made it a little taller.

Large Laptop Tote
Another functional bag to carry your laptop.  It seems to me this one doesn't have a zipper, and that kind of turns me off. :-(

What style are you most excited for?


  1. Maybe the Large Laptop Tote? No zipper sucks, but I have been hoping for a bag that will work for all my school stuff. Can't wait 'til next year!

  2. Annie you might be interested in the Commuter tote. It doesn't not come in the different patterns, just microfiber for now, but it might fit your needs.

  3. Excited for both hipster styles and the petite tote (that is, if the straps are long enough on the latter). Hoping to pick up a laptop backpack! This is good info, as maybe I should wait til the new one is released and the older style goes on sale in all available colors.

  4. I would like to see the strap lengths also. I think your best bet on the backpack would be when a color goes on sale for 40% off. (After Christmas) The styles themselves don't usually go that low.

    1. Yeah, I think that the older weekender style was 40% off all colors for a short time. With some of these 60% off sales lately, I'm hoping to snag one then or during a 50% off sale. I really want it in Tea Garden, but would also consider Plum Petals or Lemon Parfait.

  5. Hmm. How do you feel about Mocha Rouge, Floral Nightingale, Very Berry Paisley or Rhythm and Blues?

  6. Hmm...I wouldn't really want any of those. Are they retiring in January? I love Very Berry Paisley, but don't want any more stuff in a bit oversaturated :>.

  7. I've, "heard," they will be 40% off after Christmas. I've also heard there is a HUGE after Christmas sale, I believe before New Years, so I'm excited to see everything it includes.

  8. Cool! Thanks for the info. I'll be looking forward to that as well :>.

  9. How do you sign up to get these surveys?

    1. I wish I knew because I never get them!! Lol someone always sends them to me.
