Vera Bradley Microfiber Tote Giveaway!

The Vera Bradley Microfiber Tote giveaway is now closed.  Thank you to everyone who entered!  Make sure you check back in soon for your next chance to win...

This is one of the best giveaways yet! This time I have a beautiful Vera Bradley Microfiber City Tote to give to one of my lucky visitors...

Vera Bradley Microfiber Tote Bag Giveaway

I love this bag! More than once, I have had to resist the temptation to tear the price tag off and to declare it "MINE!". It is so pretty. However, I purchased it with the intention of giving it away, and so, that's what I'm going to do!

Before we go into the giveaway details, I will tell you a little bit about it...

* This tote is a beautiful limited edition style from the black microfiber collection. Although the style is now retired, it will never go out of style.

* It features double quilted stitching. Many of the microfiber bags feature contrasting stitching, but this one has coordinating black stitching.

* It has eye-catching chrome-colored rivet and buckle details. Very classy looking!

* Pockets? Of course! It has a large slip pocket on the front exterior of the tote. Inside, there are two smaller slip pockets, as well as one large zippered pocket.

* Although it's a "tote", the main compartment does have a zipper closure, and the overall styling is more like a purse.

* The suggested retail price is $90.00.

Now, for the giveaway details:
