Happy Tuesday!

Get your party pants on, because today is an extra special day: I’ve got some big stuff in store for you! (Whoa, man!)

First up: My new favorite purse, and the perfect holiday frock. 

I am so excited to announce that I’m partnering up with Vera Bradley to celebrate the launch of their new quilted leather handbags! Doesn’t this little quilted Sydney cross-body have a Chanel-like feel to it? (Except that it only sets you back $148!) You’ve known Vera for years for her bright colors, prints, and those quilted duffel bags that seem to hold more than Mary Poppins’ magic tote. But now, she’s upped her game to this gorgeous new collection, made with the same quality we’ve come to expect from Vera Bradley. Not to mention, it’s always nice when investing in a quality handbag doesn’t hurt your bank account!  It takes a lot to impress me, really, and I’m impressed.

That being said, I hope you’ll come out to the event I’m hosting along with Kelly and InStyle Magazine at the Vera Bradley store in Water Tower place on December 3rd! (Wow, that was a mouthful.) The festivities kick off at 6:30pm and go to the wee hours of the morning. (Kidding. Actually it goes until 8:30. I’m writing this on my second glass of wine and I’ve got jokes.) You can enjoy sips, sweets, and the chance to win some great Vera prizes! (Plus, Kelly and I are really fun, I promise, so let’s hang out.) Make sure to RSVP here! Can’t wait to see you there!

P.S.  you should DEFINITELY check out the huge Shopbop sale that’s happening right now through December 1st! It’s their biggest sale of the year, and the more you buy, the more you save! (So I’d suggest getting your girls together to go halfsies (fourthsies?) on your Christmas shopping for some mega-savings!) Spend $250= 15% off, Spend $500= 20% off, Spend $1000 = 25% off. Check out all the details here.

I know that was a lot to take in, which means you’ve got a LOT of shopping to do. So good luck out there, and we’ll see you tomorrow! 😉
