Spring 2012: Ellie Blue

Elephants on parade … Our week of sneak peeks marches on with the inspiration behind the rich shades of Ellie Blue, provided by our favorite commentator, Liz of Liz on Location.

Ellie Blue

“Explore the exotic nuances of an Indian market through traditional indigo textiles accented by the golden tints of the desert.  Imagine a land where alluring beasts roam free, becoming one with the natives, and a mystical nirvana exists among the locals.

Ellie Blue

Our hope was that this pattern would evoke the feeling of strolling through a distant marketplace; feeling the lush textiles and taking in the rich, bold dyes. The presence of the awe-inspiring elephant only heightens this sense of intrigue and whimsy.”

I recently fell in love with the watercolor print and have it in a book bag, wallet, purse, and duffel. I have Vera Bradley everything flip flops, laptop skin and so much more. Unfortunately i got involved with Vera after the pink and black elephant print was discontinued. I was so upset because i LOVE elephants, i even have a small elephant tattoo. If i was to receive this tote it would be the first of many items added to my collection of this print.

  350. Sharon Heaps says:

    The blend of yellow and blue is one of my top two favorite color combinations (besides pink and brown!) I love the nice mix of vibrant blue and a softer and much paler blue….that incorporates the fun pop of yellow in!

    The best part of this color pattern is definitely the elephants! All of my children have received a stuffed elephant when born with it’s trunk lifted up as this is indicating good luck! My oldest daughter is graduating high school this year and this would make an amazing gift of luck for her!

    Great job VB!

  682. Melinda says:

    Ellie Blue, reminds me of that first feeling of summer, the sun is gold but the water still a little chilly and looking out to sea, all your can see is the deep blue that goes on for miles. All the flowers are in full bloom, contrasting against the grass, so they’re hard to miss. The bag even captures the little clover like flowers which spring up in the grass .. and the dots and whispy design carries all of natures flying creatures, down to hang out among the flowers.

    I love Ellie Blue, it reminds me of growing up in an Australian summer 🙂 It combines my childhood playground with my adult tastes and individuality .. in an amazing new collection which shows I’m bold, bright, and love the style!

  683. Sarah McCan says:

    I received a Vera Bradley bag and wallet for Christmas and had my 2 grand-daughters both wanting me to give to them. Young to old – everyone loves anything Vera Bradley. Good quality and colors are beautifull!!
