Vera Bradley (or, rather, Barbara Bradley Baekgaard—the label is named after her mother) doesn't just make quilted floral weekenders, she really lives that aggressively patterned life. Last night, the designer threw a party for her new leather goods line at her Central Park apartment, where guests like Marie Claire's Zanna Roberts Rassi (pictured above) snapped photos of the décor in all of its mixed-print, monogrammed glory. Vera Bradley bags always look a bit out of context on New York City streets, where the bedspread patterns pop against a sea of blacks and grays. But here—here they're at home.
