When I graduated high school, I received many gifts. Many of those I loved, many I wanted to return. Several of those I’m so glad I didn’t.
One woman gave me a Vera Bradley clip board and umbrella. Um, what? I never thought I would use either of those. I was wrong, VERY wrong. Every college co-ed should have both of these things. An umbrella is an obvious necessity unless you go to school in L.A.
However, I love my clip board. It’s so useful. As an involved member of my sorority, it’s perfect to use during meetings without absentmindedly scribbling all over my hands. For something that I thought should never be produced, it can’t leave my hands. Plus, the sense of authority and power I feel while holding it doesn’t hurt.
Vera Bradley makes cute enough designs that you don’t have to feel bland and outdated. If you already have a boring clipboard buried underneath your scrunchies and perm solution that’s waiting for a rebirth, check out Vanilla Joy’s Do-It-Yourself clipboard.
