Native New Yorkers, transplants, and tourists alike know Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks for short, as a destination for the best designer duds online and off. In 2022, Saks has locations all over the United States, but back in 1924, the original location opened on, you guessed it, 5th avenue in New York. Located between, 49th and 50th streets, the store was founded by Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel with a dream to create a unique specialty store that would become synonymous with the most fashionable living.

With humble beginnings, the pair succeded, and these days Saks is known worldwide. Of course, the company’s flagship is still located on 5th avenue to this day, and it attracts both locals and tourists alike. During the holiday season, Saks is an attraction thanks to its iconic light show, but fashionable women (and men) can be seen coming and going at all times of the year. We spent an afternoon loitering outside of one of the city’s best destinations for designer goods all in one place to see what shoppers were carrying. Check out the best Bags in the Wild below!

I just bought that Celine belt bag in the same exact color and am so glad I did after seeing it in this post. Obsessed! Great photos 🙂

What size is that one? Nano or Micro? It instantly caught my eye too.

Also, the Micro has feet, this one doesn’t! It’s the Nano

The one in the picture is the Nano size, the Micro is a touch bigger. I can tell by the strap width. The micro bag has a thicker strap. FYI I own both! Nano is my fave size because the strap is adjustable.

Mine is the micro and it looks the same as the size in the photo so I *think* it’s a micro. I would recommend trying on in store if possible. I was sure I would want the mini but the smaller micro with the longer crossbody ended up being perfect for me! Nano was a bit too small for my large bag loving taste 🙂

That bag is so underrated, perfect size, adjustable strap, sturdy leather and secure zipper ❤️❤️❤️

I have honestly overlooked it for years…but was head over heels when I saw the rich green color and now I’m absolutely obsessed with the design. Can’t believe it took me so long to appreciate its beauty!

This post reminds me of how much I want another Balenciaga. I’ve always wanted a pink one but in the old style.

Love the pink Jackie bag — such a nice promise of spring to come! But that Birkin — it’s a pickpocket’s Holy Grail dream come true!

Pickpocket will turn thief once he knows the cost of the bag. He’ll run off with the entire bag! Haha…
