If there are two things we love in life, it’s handbags and holidays. This year, we decided to skip the partridge in a pear tree and give you 12 straight days of handbags! We’ll be revealing a different category every day, in addition to doing some Instagramming of our favorite handbags in each.

Day 1 is all about the top handles. The Louis Vuitton Speedy, Hermes Birkin and Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise all made our picks for our favorite arm candy. Take a look below and follow us on Instagram to catch all the holiday handbag action.

    I know it’s supposed to be about the bags, but I can’t help it… these are photographed BEAUTIFULLY!!! Is this Vlad’s work? Pure genius! I’m especially in love with the Kate Spade/candy cane still life. Honestly… this could go in an art gallery. And someone would pay top dollar for it!

    • This was Bea from our team that photographed the bags! We’ve been trying to sprinkle some of Vlad’s photo knowledge to the team ;)

    Ha – love the “price on request” for the Hermes. Must be a rather big “ouch” factor there! Photos are beautiful. I would have also included the Givenchy Antigona, the Fendi 2Jours and the Lady Dior.

    • Haha… it varies with the Birkins now. Around $10k starting but this is a 35 cm so it’s a bit more
