The first is that the first two patterns of the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley will be available online starting October 21, 2013!
The ‘Just Mousing Around’ and ‘Midnight With Mickey’ patterns have been wildly popular, you see them EVERYWHERE in the parks, and now Disney Vera Bradley fans can add these to their holiday wish lists!
Here is another look at the patterns and purses in the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley collection that will be available in the Disney Parks Online Store!
And the second announcement was the reveal of the ‘Where’s Mickey?’ pattern that will be coming soon to the World of Disney Marketplace in Florida!
The pattern features great colors for the fall, and enough Hidden Mickeys to make any hunter excited!
‘Where’s Mickey?’ will be featured on several familiar and popular styles such as the hipster, backpack, large duffel, Smartphone wristlet and more.
As with the previous Disney Collection by Vera Bradley patterns, they have been created especially and exclusively for Disney Theme Parks Merchandise and will be only be available for purchase in the Disney Parks and online at the Disney Parks Online Store!
I will definitely be on the lookout for this new pattern, and will bring you the news as soon as they are spotted at the World of Disney Marketplace!
If you are anything like me, I am BEYOND excited for the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley bags to be available in the parks and online!!!
My Mother has given me a Vera Bradley bag for every holiday and birthday for as long as I can remember, and at my baby shower she got Zoe and I matching duffle bags and purses to use when we were coming home from the hospital! And now that two of my favorite things are about to come together, I am almost giddy!
I love how the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley stays true to the spirit of both Vera Bradley and Disney, and is a very vibrant color palate and I love how Mickey and Minnie are arm-in-arm!
Midnight with Mickey is my favorite, because I love a great black purse and the colors are awesome!
Just Mousing Around is a lot of fun, and as the more whimsical of the two patterns it is going to be great collection for the spring or as a way to brighten up a dreary winter day!
Fans of Vera Bradley will notice that the prices of the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley bags are a little higher than bags in the current collection. However these prices are highly competitive against the Disney Dooney & Bourke and LeSportsac lines.
