Bags In The Wild

The Many Street Style Bags from Thanksgiving Weekend in NYC’s Upper East Side

Hermès, Gucci, and more oh my!

Manhattan’s Upper East Side is a pretty, posh neighborhood that’s home to some of the city’s most charming blocks. From Central Park to the shops on Madison Avenue, there are museums, designer boutiques, iconic restaurants, and classic city landmarks to be seen throughout this well-known neighborhood. During the holidays, the UES is particularly buzzy, with tourists and locals alike shopping, eating, and enjoying everything New York City has to offer during the holiday season. This buzzy time of year kicks off Thanksgiving weekend and continues right on through the New Year. We spent Thanksgiving Weekend strolling the UES to bring you some of the best bags Upper Manhattanites and tourists alike had to offer. There was Gucci galore, classic Hermès (of course), vintage Coach, and so much more. Spoiler alert: we weren’t disappointed, and we don’t think you will be either! Take a look below at the many street style bags we spotted in NYC’s Upper East Side!

I love this post. Enjoy seeing various bags out in the wild on real people.
The more I see the Demellier Vancouver bag, the more I love it. It’s in the “que” for my next handbag purchase .

Que means “what” in Spanish. I think you mean queue.

The Vancouver has become my go-to daily crossbody! Perfect amount of pockets and compartments to keep things (mostly) organized. And it is so easy to dress up or down. 🙂

That’s very helpful to know.
Now my only question remaining is what color to choose. Lol

Practicality shines in the city especially in the colder months and that weekend was windy and cold
