If you follow me on social, then you will know that last week I hosted yet another fantastic event with my friends from the Mall of Georgia Vera Bradley. This is my second time hosting a fall event with them, and I have to admit, they really put me in the autumnal mindset. Being surrounded by all of the beautiful fall colors combined with the rich smell of leather basically turns me into a pumpkin.
This year, we collaborated with a couple of stores in the Mall of Georgia to create three styled outfits inspired by Vera Bradley’s new fall leather bags that were released the day of the event. All shoes pictured are from Aerosoles, and the clothing pieces selected by moi, were kindly provided by Fiore Boutique. It really wasn’t hard styling the handbags, they are lovely with just about anything. However, I had an amazing opportunity to select equally beautiful outfits to feature them with. My interpretation of what dreams are made of.
Before we get to pics – let’s do a brief run down of some of the new Vera Bradley leather releases – many of which are pictured below, and will be noted in the photo descriptions. First we have some of the new Gallatin leather items. There are new styles in addition to new colors. The new styles are the Gallatin Tote, Carson Shoulder Bag, Gallatin Crossbody, Gallatin Satchel, and the Cargo Backpack. All five styles come in the following colors; Cactus Green (new), Bittersweet Chocolate (new), and Black. As for the Sycamore leather collection, the new Wild Berry color was added to existing styles. There is also a Sycamore Bitter Sweet Chocolate Carson Shoulder bag, my personal favorite. And the Mallory Tote and the Carson Mini Saddle Bag got a makeover this fall, adorned with gold studded details and full-grain leather! Another exciting item Vera released with this launch – embellished straps for the Carson Shoulder bags! I know I am missing a few pieces, but be sure to visit your local Vera Bradley, store and speak with one of their expert associates for a full overview. Or go to VeraBradley.com and peruse the new release section.
I honestly had so much fun, and this party was the highlight of my week for sure! I highly suggest if you are in the Atlanta/Metro-Atlanta area to book your own party with the Mall of Georgia Vera Bradley! You can invite your friends and family, and enjoy a few party perks. If you are not in the area, be sure to call your local Vera Bradley store, and speak with the Event Manager for more information on how you can host your own party.
One more VERY important piece of information I need to impart – don’t forget to celebrate Vera’s birthday with an extra 25% off of your purchases – starting today August 3rd through Sunday, August 6th! There is also a promotion for a FREE Midtown RFID Wristlet with any full-priced purchase of $125 or more. Happy shopping!
