Vera Bradley Metropolitan Hobo

Take one look at this bag and guess the brand… I bet you didn’t guess Vera Bradley. Well, it IS a Vera Bradley, strange huh? Where is the classic cloth, paisley colors and designs? Almost too traditional for Vera Bradley, right? I think that’s what I like most about it. I’m not sure that I like the cloth look Vera traditionally creates, but I am a fan of the color palette she uses. It’s so versatile, vibrant, and lush. This Metropolitan Hobo, in wine, makes me want to show this off sitting on the patio while sipping on some Merlot at the local wine bar.It even details strips of shiny patent accents for a dressed up appeal. Can you see why I’m always fascinated with the purse industry? It makes me want to CREATE, design, fashion myself after something wonderful and new! Okay, I’m a little excited, but seriously, I’m glad Vera Bradley took a walk on the wild side and structured this look as a part of her new collection.

It just goes to show that dibbling and dabbling can pay off. Or just get better with time, like wine! Price: $95.00 at

    Love and adore Vera Bradley for it’s evolution. Trailblazers in the industry – they continue to pursue and deliver great style and function. I own this bag!! Compliments every time I carry it. Often imitated, and never duplicated by rivals – the Vera Bradley product line successfully retains their unique style signature, while consistently developing exciting new themes and designs. They’ve earned their strength in the industry through sheer excellence. Check them out if you haven’t before.

    Also purchased a matching travel bag – very chic, as well!
