Vera Bradley #TOGETHERINSTYLE IN NYCThis past week, we officially raised our glasses to toast Vera Bradley’s first foray into leather with an intimate gathering of media and fashion influencers, held at our Co-founder, Barbara Bradley Baekgaard’s New York City apartment. Her co-host Zanna Roberts Rassi is an E! News Correspondent, Senior Fashion Editor for Marie Claire USA, Fashion Contributor for NBC’s Today Show and guest judge on Project Runway.

Barbara counts seeing the Leather collection come to fruition as one of the most rewarding experiences of her 32 years in the business. “I am so proud of our entire team. It was so much fun putting this collection together and seeing the excitement it has created,” she said.  “This event was full of energy and positivity. I wish you all could have been there! Again, a huge thank you to everyone!”

The straps stay on my shoulder and the look is much classier. It holds plenty without looking like luggage.
