For today’s installment of Bags in the Wild, we’re heading back down to Miami to see what people at Bal Harbour shops were carrying while strolling, shopping, dining, and just overall being fabulous! Bal Harbour boasts some of the most amazing luxury brands and cafes and attracts Miami’s fashion elite, no matter the day.

The open-air mall feels like a tropical escape, and don’t expect to see the typical athleisure and ultra-casual outfits out to play when visiting. Patrons bring their best outfits (and bags) when dining and enjoying Bal Harbour. We spent some time in August strolling the shops to see what bags we could spot.

As always, Miami’s bag lovers did not disappoint! We saw plenty of stunning bags from the big buys — think Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and everyone’s favorite Hermès! Check out the full set of bags below!

Chanel, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Oh My!

I love seeing a slightly rumpled birkin. The pristine ones look a bit wrong to me, a bag like that improves with wear!

I’m not against a slightly rumpled bag, but I think a ” Holy Grail” bag deserves a little pampering.. a little respect… a lotta love!

They are all over France, funny I have never seen them in the U.S until now.

I like them in theory but it seems like someone’s bag could easily be stolen if they are engrossed in conversation or their meal. I would prefer bag hooks attached to the table like they have at bars. I keep a Clipa handbag hook in my bag.

I totally agree ! I absolutely don’t do that even in the finest restaurants.

We have some places with bag hooks in Switzerland. And also bag tables — small footstools for setting your bag down. (I see the bag tables at upscale places in Austria too)

We were in an upscale restaurant in Paris where they set a small stool next to me, to sit my handbag on. I was extremely happy, because I had just purchased my first new Chanel from Rue Cambon, and felt like it was given special treatment. 🙂

I ❤️ Bal Harbour! I was there when Barack Obama was running for President and he was in town. Several streets were blocked off and I happily took the scenic route from my gorgeous hotel to the beautiful mall! B.H. is a little slice of heaven on earth! 😍

Yes same here. Here most tables in the restaurants have bag hooks underneath.

These posts make me want to take a trip to Miami just to spend an afternoon bag and people watching at Bal Harbour.

It’s Florida, maybe they mean no crocodiles?

Bea – This is likely not related to style. I used to work for Crocs – years ago they had several high profile incidents where children got Crocs stuck in escalators.

For certain, the mall doesn’t want any kids getting their feet stuck in the escalator slots!

That isn’t a giyard St. Louis. It’s an Artois

The tote was lacking the Artois’ signature four leather corners, I verified this from the other shots I took of the bag.

We’d need to see if we can find a local photographer to capture the style for us. We can do a call out on IG for it!

Not a fan of black handbags, but I could go for that black Louis Vuitton backpack. The skirt that the mini Kelly woman is wearing is too cute.

Why do all restaurants not offer a purse perch stand for our bags???
