We've had Christmas on the brain for at least six weeks, plus all of the parties, events, get-togethers and family dinners that come with it. We've made gift guides, we've made party accessory suggestions and we've enumerated the items on our wish lists. Now, it's just time to have some fun. Once again, I've consulted my handbag tea leaves to tell you what your holiday party bag choices might indicate about you.
Dolce & Gabbana Sara Embellished Clutch
$3,495 via Net-a-Porter
If Queen of the Feast of the Seven Fishes were a real title, you'd be it, hands down.
Edie Parker Flavia Mrs. Claus Clutch
$1,495 via Net-a-Porter
You will not, under any circumstances, admit to your nosy coworker at the company Christmas party how much this thing cost.
Furla Candy Bon-Bon Mini Glitter Bag
$148 via Neiman Marcus
You have perhaps been known to over-induldge at parties in the past, so having a bag that can be easily cleaned out with a damp cloth is in your best interest.
Charlotte Olympia Pandora Panoramic Box Clutch
$1,295 via Neiman Marcus
You took some inadvisable drugs at Coachella and you're still not entirely sure where you are.
Judith Leiber New Sphere Crystal Minaudiere
$3,995 via Neiman Marcus
The New Year's Eve party that you attend is going to have really good champagne, but you're probably so rich that you don't even need to bring a bag big enough to secretly take a bottle home with you.
Marchesa Lily Clutch
$2,695 via Bergdorf Goodman
If you're going to a party fancy enough to carry this clutch, watch out. It's probably a secret wedding of some sort.
Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Flower Minaudiere
$2,000 via Bergdorf Goodman
This clutch will be your bag for Christmas and Valentine's Day every year for the foreseeable future.
Prada Saffiano Cuir Double Bag
$2,650 via Bergdorf Goodman
You're hopeful that the party favors are going to be generous and you don't want to have to accidentally leave them on the seat of your Uber on the way home.
Saint Laurent Petit Satchel Monogramme Velvet Shoulder Bag
$1,850 via MyTheresa
You fully intend to have champagne and cigarettes for Christmas dinner, just like Kate Moss would want you to.
Valentino Rockstud Flap Shoulder Bag
$1,195 via Net-a-Porter
If this Christmas party could hurry up and end, that'd be great--you have some impossible-to-get dinner reservations to get to.
