Not A Pink Girl

Vera Bradley adds a new color! | October 28, 2009

UPDATE: I’ve found the first-ever Vera Bradley ad that features an African-American. It’s in the October 2009 issue of Southern Living (!) magazine, on page 23. I figure the reason it’s in that particular magazine is because it features not just an African-American college-age female, but also… a bulldog. So there’s the Georgia Bulldogs university tie-in. Congratulations, Vera Bradley, for entering the post-1964 era! Now, a request: can you take it a step further & use an African-American (or two, or three) in your next print catalog? Dare to dream… For more on Vera Bradley’s fascination with white-only models, see my blog from June 2008.
