First, let me remove my foot from my mouth. Back in October, I wrote a post about Vera Bradley. I needed a prep to break down the obsession with her quilted print. When I was in the store to pick out my mom's Hipster in Java Blue, I was completely overwhelmed. There was so much print, so many colors, all crammed in a dark cubbie display...ahhh...I get the shakes thinking about it. Well, last week I went into my new favorite shop in Old Town Alexandria called 3 Sisters. They have lots of Vera pieces, but they are were displayed throughout the store and their main Vera display was open and light. I was able to process the sights, patterns, and objectively look at the pieces. Well, let's just say I drank the Vera kool-aid.

21" x 14½" x 9½" with 7" strap drop and 52½" removable strap
Now, for my second dose, I see that there are sale items and I need some cosmetic bags...clearly.
Here's what I found:
|Jewelry Box in Hope Garden|
|Large Cosmetic in Peacock|
|Zip-Around Wallet in Hop Garden|
|And...for TSA...the Transparent Travel Pouch in Viva la Vera|
Next, I'm going to show you the awesomeness from Sephora:
|OPI Urban Ballerina.|
Love this collection, neutrals with some pop of color.
|Sephora Collection Tourmaline flat iron|
Since my Chi's plug is held together with tape.
|Philosophy Purity facial cleanser|
Travel size for all my travels
|Clarins Self-Tanning Gel|
To cover the lines and give a little glow
Granted, since these were all online, I have to wait for shipping. So naturally, I'm going to get anxious waiting for these two shipments to arrive!
Speaking of, while I was in Texas, I had a couple of other packages from another online shopping spree.
I got a gorge bandeau bikini from Lands End in navy...it's a little nautical and I totally love it. I would post a pic, but can't find one I can swipe. Oh, and it's on sale!
Also, I found some Broncos gear for this season!!
|The 75% of the Earth is covered by water, the rest is covered by Champ Bailey.|
|There will be no doubt of my team with this orange and navy number!|
I already have my eyes on some pieces for fall, but that's a whole other post to dream, drool, and shop for!
