How do you feel about them? I was talking to a friend the other day who said that they appear cheap and that she doesn't understand the Vera Bradley craze that seems to have swept the town. I can't tell you HOW many girls and women in my city that have a Vera Bradley bag. From the teenagers to the elderly ladies, they have such a wide appeal! So I was wondering what you girls think of them. I know that they aren't designer bags, but I still find some of them to be adorable! I especially like the tote bag in hope toile, and I also like the makeup/pencil pouch in the pattern called citrus. I consider it a guilty pleasure of mine *shh* So if you like them, what initially drew you to them? And to those who concurr and don't like them, why not? I attached some pics if that can help enlighten the nonbelievers.
