Okay at this point it’s obvious that shopping is my favorite past time! This past Thursday, I had the pleasure of hosting a mixer at Henri Bendel in Atlanta, Ga. Henri Bendel is a high-end accessories and leather goods store that was founded in 1895. This was the first self-branded retailer!
A true pioneer, Bendel was the first luxury retailer with an upper Fifth Avenue address, the first to hold a semi-annual sale, the first to offer in-store makeovers, and the first to stage a fashion show. He was also responsible for bringing Coco Chanel to the United States. Bendel thrived not only as a retailer but also as a designer. His store carried the latest in Paris Couture along with Bendel’s original apparel designs, fragrances, custom furs, hats, and bridal – plus an assortment of cosmetics, skincare, lingerie, and handbags. -www.henribendel.com
Being a true New Yorker, I had to have my annual fall event at Bendel’s especially with their newest collection, an ode to the 80’s that was filled with pop colors & fun prints.
During the event, my guests received 20% off the full priced items while enjoying champagne and sweets. I was able to snag the “influencer bag” for an amazing price! I had my eyes on it for a few months!
One thing, or should I say smell, that caught the attention of my guests was a candle. When you walked on, this smell made you feel so chic! The scent is “Suite 712”. I have it in my home name and it smells great even when it’s not lit. Check out the pics below and comment where you would like to see my next event.
