Vera Bradley Mandy in Island Blooms

So i'm sitting here listening to the new song by Cassie called numb and looking at my latest bag. I must say i'm pretty happy, I bought on of my wishlist bags and I wouldn't necessarily call it designer but I bought a new Vera Bradley bag. I bought the Mandy in Island Blooms, which I have wanted for a good 6-7 months now. Here she is, newly unboxed and ready to be used!
I ended up having to place a order for her online since all of the stores in my area who sale VB did not have it in stock. I bought it online and received it in 60% less time then my local stores could get it ordered for me. I love this print, to me it looks perfect for summer and it looks beachy to me so It's perfect for me. I know there are lot of people who don’t care for Vera Bradley bags but I love them. I know they can be pretty expensive considering they are just quilted fabric but for me they work and I don’t mind paying the price, especially if I find a print and style I love. I think VB bags are great because number one you can wash them! That is a big deal to me. If I’m going to be in a dirty or germy area, break out the Vera and come home and wash it and it’s like new again. I love some of the print and colors they come in, I love bright colors and I adore this particular print. They are light and summery and something I don’t mind just throwing around. I also love to use my Vera bags when going somewhere I may not want to take my more expensive designer bags. Say if I go on vacation, or downtown and I don’t feel comfortable taking my designer bags these work perfectly for me. 

As far as this bag goes I love it so far, haven't used it yet but I can't wait to use it tomorrow! The bag is pretty basic it has one slip pocket on the outside and six pockets on the inside and has a zippered tote. It's pretty roomy inside so it can hold a lot. I love the size of it because while I may not always carry a lot there are days I have my purse stuffed completely full of stuff so I like a bag that can hold a lot for the days I need to carry more. Inside it has a block pattern as you can see and it comes with a little Vera Bradley card you can also see, just like all the other Vera bags. The price for the regular size Mandy bag that I bought is $70.00 and if you order it online and factor in taxes and shipping my grand total came to $84.80. If you are not much on big bags they do make this bag in a smaller size and it's called the Little Mandy. My mother has the Little version and it's exactly the same as mine, it has six pockets inside and one slip pocket outside the only difference is really the height of the bag and it may just a bit smaller on width as well. 
If you are interested in buying the Mandy bag in Island Blooms you better get it soon. The person I talked to in my local VB store told me that Island Blooms will be retiring soon. I believe she said in September, but I may have misheard her. Sorry but I don't have any modeling shots yet, but if/when I take any I will be sure to post them for you all so you can get an idea of what the bag looks like when it's full of stuff and when it's carried.
