The Absolute Best Bags to Give This Holiday Season - See Our Gift Guide With Over 60 Options

A couple years ago, we attended our first Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in NYC, and it was one of those experiences you don’t forget. This year, Vlad headed back to NYC to shoot the event again (I had serious FOMO back in Florida), and from what he shared and the photos I saw, it was another one of those pinch-me-is-this-real kinds of days.

While we love sharing the bags people carry, it’s more fun to see the ensembles put together for an event like this. Everyone goes all out, wearing outfits you’d rarely see elsewhere, including massive hats, dapper suits and sundresses in soft shades that you rarely see as part of NYC’s style landscape. If you want to order a bottle of the iconic and highly loved Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne, you can do so on Amazon for $65. Delve into the world of Champagne, rosé and polo in our photos below!

    Oh my, that Dior…. Makes me sigh :)

    • RIGHT?!

    • Biogirl

      Me too!!! So lovely.

    • memsy

      Do you know which Dior bag that is?

  • shueaddict

    Fab fab fab fantabulous !!! The pics are awesome … Made my night.

  • Charlie

    I would much prefer this kind of post than the ones featuring non-celebrity celebrities with their bags…

    • Which celebrities do you like?

      • Jen

        I’d love to see more topics on staffers like the one you did for Lucky Mag or something similar. A working group of fashion savvy professionals is much more fun and inspiring than the usual celebrities. Plus more in depth interviews / favorite things list are fun too. Or maybe a peek inside someone’s handbag collection? I love it all! Thank you Purse Blog. ;-)

      • We have a new group coming next week for you!

      • maria pepa gomez

        Sofía Sánchez de Betak is someone to have an eye on. She’s an art director

      • maria pepa gomez

        Bianca Brandolini and Delfina Blaquier too

      • Sparkletastic

        For me it’s more of which ones I’m sick of seeing. Any Kardashian / reality star makes my eyes roll back in my head.

        I’d prefer seeing real people (aspirational real people are fine!) styling their bags.

      • Holly Stanton

        Celebrities aren’t all that fashionable that’s why they have stylists. Street style and fashionable non celebs are more creative and inspiring.

  • Amazona

    Looks great! And a breath of fresh air. The only thing – did you notice the woman with the Micro Peekaboo? And her man next to her, with his hands full of stuff; 2 phones, papers etc. Made me chuckle a little. :D Why on earth does anyone carry a bag like that when it’s no use..?

    • Ha, ya that bag legit fits so little. I know with what I need to carry I could never get away with that bag, but guess she really liked it!

      • Amazona

        Looks like she’s carrying a coin purse as a crossbody. :’D A good way to counter the size of the bag would be to wear something with big pockets. Like, HUGE. Army combat pants anyone?

    • Claire

      Just making sure you guys are aware that “her man” is Floyd Mayweather lol

      • c.Miller

        LOL!!!!!! Too funny, I didn’t even realize it was him!

      • Vlad Dusil

        Oh wow, I think you may be right.

      • Smiley1

        Sorry but that’s not Floyd Mayweather. It looks nothing like him other than the same skin tone.

    • Olivia J.

      I think she is Steve Harvey’s daughter!

  • Bir

    LOVED THE POST MORE OF THIS PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kemilia

    I want some of those yellow sunglasses! And a flute of champagne, of course. I thoroughly enjoyed this post, much better than the celeb posts.

    All the pics are so beautiful that I felt I was there myself! Such is the effect of Vlad’s photography skills! The blue Chloe bag against that printed dress! What a great combo! Loved all the bags featured here!

  • abigail

    events like this bring out the most stylishly handsome men ;)

  • jenjen

    The handbags comes to life in each photo and everyone looks beautiful! Love!!!

  • Lisa

    Who makes the blue bag in photo #5? It’s on the woman with her back to the camera wearing blue/yellow print dress — she’s in the middle of three women — the one on the right is wearing black/white stripes. Thanks; great post!!

    • LG

      I’m dying to know what that bag is too!

    • Megan

      It looks like a Hermes bag based on the logo above the clasp but I could be wrong.

  • CatR

    I love the orange LV bag and the orange Gucci! Such perfect colors for this event! This was a great post, more like this please!

  • EliCaroline

    Pretty colors. I love all of these bags. Great post. I love seeing “bags in the wild” on regular people.

  • Susan

    Would have been helpful if you put a caption under each photo with the name of the bag.
    But great shots—my fav is the black on against the print dress. Is it Dior?

  • Susan

    Please identify the bags in each photo…we need to know!!!

  • Jerri R

    I thought the chairs were by Chanel :)

  • Susan

    Do you realize that you have MISSPELLED Veuve Clicquot ?

  • Jess

    Really beautiful photos. The colours are impressive. Great bags too :)
