Day 1 Top Handles

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
