Vera Bradley Symphony in Hue – Pictures Don’t Do It Justice!

My first glimpse of the recently released Vera Bradley Symphony in Hue was back in June.  Christmas stockings made from this pattern were passed out at the 2009 Tony Awards.

Based on these pictures, I have to reluctantly admit that I was not initially impressed with this pattern.  However, when in doubt, I have found that sometimes the best thing to do is to wait until I can see it in person.  I have been wanting to make a trip to my local Vera Bradley store to do just that, but since the kids have been back to school, the only time I spend on the road is shuttling them back and forth to school, and my sixth grader to football practices and games.

Finally, this week I had a little free time, and was able to make a trip to the store.  I am so glad I did!  Based on the pictures I have seen, I thought this would be my least favorite of the winter 2009 introductions.  I was wrong!  After getting a good look at it this week in person, it's without a doubt my favorite of the three new patterns.

Although it has a black background, it's anything but boring!  However, that was actually my initial concern.  With the mix of colors and the detailed print, I was afraid it would be too busy for my tastes.  To my surprise and delight, everything works together perfectly!

If the Vera Bradley Symphony in Hue pattern looks familiar, there's a reason.  It's basically the same print as the popular Blue Rhapsody pattern that was released in June.  However, the blues and greens of Blue Rhapsody have been replaced with Symphony in Hue's vibrant mix of colors on a black background.

In my opinion, there is one color that really stands out when you see this pattern in person - and that color is pink!  This pattern incorporates several shades of pink, from pale rose to warm fuschia.  I'm not sure yet, but perhaps that's why I like it so much.

Another thing that I really like is the liner fabric, which features a repeating floral design of pretty flowers.  If you are like me, and love this pattern from the inside out, you may want to check out the new Reversible Tote.  I will be posting more on the new tote later, but right now, I'm anxious to hear what everyone thinks of the Vera Bradley Symphony in Hue.  If you would like to leave your thoughts, it's easy - just comment below...
