Southern Belle Contemplates: Bye-Bye Isand Blooms

I knew this day would come but that doesn’t make it any easier.  My favorite Vera Bradley pattern of all time is being discontinued.  I don’t know why I like this pattern best but I have bought many things in this pattern.  It’s a summer pattern but it works all year-long.  It is Island Blooms.  To me it looks like it was made for a Southern Belle.  Good Bye Island Blooms, I’m going to miss you!

Southern Belle Contemplates Monday (on Tuesday): Vera Bradley Outlet

I love Vera Bradley!  Everyone that knows me knows this.  I’m always caring a Vera Bradley bag.  In fact every day I have a least ten pieces of Vera Bradley with me at one time.  When we went to Disney World I took about 25 pieces with me.  This past weekend when we went away for a couple of nights I had a least 15 pieces with me.  When I found out that come fall the Disney Parks are going to start selling Mickey and Minnie Vera Bradley bags I was overly excited.  Two of my favorite things rolled into one.! I can’t wait to either order one on-line or get one next year if/when I go back to Disney World.  So when I found out there is a Vera Bradley Outlet Store in the newly reopened Opry Mills Mall in Nashville, I was a little excited.  After all Nashville is one of our favorite places to travel for a weekend getaway.  Well this past weekend that is where we went to get away, Nashville!  The only thing I had on my list was to hit three stores in the mall; Disney, Vera, and Bass Pro.  I know that is a strange list but that is where this Southern Belle wanted to shop at.  Disney and Vera because well as you can tell I love Disney and I am obsessed with Vera Bradley Bags.  Bass Pro because I wanted to see what kind of Duck Commander/Duck Dynasty stuff they had.  Getting back on track now.  On Saturday I made it to the Vera Bradley Outlet.  Well I am not going to lie I was a little disappointed with it.  The prices were okay and they were having a great sale but I think I do better purchasing from the on-line outlet.  I did purchase a few things, and for the few things I did purchase I had to wait about a half hour in line in an extremely hot store, I was about to pass out by the time I got to the register.  If I was purchasing on-line I could have done it in my PJ’s and with the AC freezing me out!  In fact I was very disappointed with the whole mall, if I ever go back to that mall it will be too soon!
