Travel season is upon us – and I don’t know about you – but I find nothing appealing about long car rides or dirty airports. In all honesty, I really don’t enjoy packing either. Unpacking is even worse. So, to make this travel season a little more exciting, I teamed up with my local Vera Bradley located at the Mall of Georgia, and hosted a “Sophisticated Traveler” party last week. I was honored to be invited to host a party to begin with but when I was presented with the opportunity to choose a theme, I jumped at the chance to feature some of the products that Vera does best. We are talking high quality, and stylish luggage, in addition to travel accessories. After all, that is how founders Barbara Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller began their business, with luggage for the sophisticated female traveler.
Before we get into some of the items I will be featuring in this blog, I first wanted to showcase the beautiful MOG Vera Bradley store and some of the party accoutrements. For any of the guests that attended the party, they received a special percentage off of their purchase for the duration of the event. They also had some pretty nice swag bags that included items from sponsors from within the mall, including LUSH! To make things even more fun, there was a “What’s in your Purse?” game, as well as a drawing for a chance to win a Sagebrush Satchel in Gallatin leather. Check out some of the photos below from the party.
So far this summer I have done the “long car ride” form of traveling. And in a couple of months, I will embark upon the “dirty airport” journey for a family wedding in the Mid-West. Both categories require some sort of luggage, and the items I chose to feature can be used for either situation. The best part – not only are these items chic, they are also extremely functional.
I had a lot of fun putting this post together, and I can’t thank my friends from the MOG Vera Bradley enough for inviting me to host such a fun party. In fact, keep your eyes peeled next month. Yours truly will be hosting an even more exciting launch party, featuring the new Fall 2018 Vera Bradley Leather collections!
