I pride myself on being a frugal girl, and quite the bargain shopper. So...when I get a freebie I get especially excited. Especially when it is this...
My sister surprised me on Saturday and gave me her Vera Bradley bag. Probably because she just gone one of these. Now, the VB doesn't quite compare to the LV, but a bag that costs as much as three months of my car payment sends shivers up my spine. High 5 to sister though!
I'm not usually a fan of VB bags...they usually remind me of grandmothers out for lunch at MCL, but this pattern is super cute. And the messenger style with the long strap is perfect to carry across my body along with the ginormous diaper bag I'm usually saddled with. It has great outside pockets for my cell phone and mp3 player.
Speaking of my mp3 player. It now has a new cozy, felty home that I made this weekend. What do you think? I added some lace and pretty buttons from my collection, as well as a chocolate felt flower and a button closure.
I may make a few more of these lovelies for my Etsy shop, which I'm slowly working toward re-opening with a new name, look and goodies. With the boys it is very slow going, but I can't wait for everything to come together!
