I live in the Boston area, home to lots of real preppies, not just wannabes. So I knew about Vera Bradley long before the company's printed fabric bags became a must-have for young women. I've even owned a few myself. But the love affair is over.
This fall, Vera Bradley is introducing a Disney-inspired line of bags and accessories. As you can see, Mini and Mickey have been worked into the fabric pattern.
Disney branded clothes and bags for grown women are a major pet peeve of mine. Until the Vera Bradley people regain their senses, my Cupcakes Pink umbrella stays in the trunk of the car.
