Okay, so I have a tiny (really major) obsession with Henri Bendel!! It all started when I was six years old! My parents took me inside when I saw a pretty Chanel, powder pink, all sequin gown in the window as we walked up 5th avenue! Aahhh! Sigh!! Those were the days when Bendel’s carried an abundance of BEAUTIFUL clothing – it was a true department store! Oh How I miss Bendel’s in its hay-day!!
Since then the specialty store has morphed into a mecca of accessories which is fantastic for a person who loves adorning themselves with jewels & trinkets!
LOVING Mr. B’s as much as I do I find myself frequenting the boutique OFTEN!! I just can never get enough!! What can I say? I’m a Bendel’s Girl!! Now that they have opened boutiques around the country filled with Henri Bendel’s Private Label Merchandise the once esteemed store for its Highest-End designer goods has relit its fire and has gained a new following of fashion forward women & fashion enthusiasts alike!
Okay so getting to the point of this post other than blabbing about my love for Henri:
As I walked into the college graduation party my parents had for me in July (possible post soon to come) I was handed a big, beautiful brown & white stripped bag! Ohhh boy was I excited!! The next day I was presently surprised by this adorably chic cross body/over the shoulder “Bendel Bow Patchwork Wallet On A String”
OOH-LALA!!! I’m IN LOVE!!! This incredible bag is perfect for special events or a night out on Zee Town! I first wore it out with make-up guru friend, Nikki Robinson of Gloss & Glam, at The Standard Hotel in NYC’s meatpacking district, who soon fell in love with the Bendel’s brand too! I got her hooked! (giggles)
See How it GLOWS?!? BEAUTIFUL!!! The embossed patchwork on this little leather love is done beautifully – its subtle which I adore! The little Henri Bendel’s signature bow (which made me fall more in love with this purse) adorns the front where the magnetic snap closure lays!
What makes this wallet-clutch so functional is that is it has so many compartments to fill; an interior zippered pocket under the flap, three open compartments around & inside and four card slots.
The pop of color from its bright plum satin lining is heaven along with its gold chain strap! (sigh if joy)
I REALLY CANT WAIT TO WEAR IT AGAIN!! I advise you drop what you are doing & go to your local Henri Bendel boutique or shop online fir great finds like this…and so many others!!!
Enjoy Being a Bendel’s Girl!!
