One thing I’ve recently learned is when you want something just ask for it, the worst anyone can do is say no! With that statement comes a major announcement. I’m now an official #BendelGirl. I must say it’s a major accomplishment to be a Henri Bendel Brand Ambassador!
Everyone who knows me knows just how obsessed I am with Henri Bendel. From the Purses to the Accessories and all Small Leather Goods I simply can’t get enough, I am definitely a self proclaimed Bendel Girl. Well about a week ago I tweeted the brand saying I wanted to be an Official #BendelGirl because what better than to become a brand ambassador for your favorite company. Not thinking I’d get a response I hit send and a few hours later received an email from the company giving me exactly what I had asked for!
Being a Twenty Something Girl I must say I absolutely love to be trendy but when buying a handbag or even a pair of shoes I’m almost always about the investment, especially when I’m spending a three figure price! What initially attracted me to the Henri Bendel brand was the storefront here in Orlando. The store was always so put together, the Sales Assistants always looked so nice and the handbags were perfectly made and displayed! After buying my first Henri Bendel handbag – the West 57th Turnlock Satchel back in August of 2016 I was completely hooked and accumulated quite a few more in the last year!
Here’s some History on this high end brand I’m so in love with. Henri Bendel was founded in 1895 and was once and still is one of New York’s more iconic stores! I mean seriously you’ll recognize the brown and cream stripes anywhere and those super fashionable illustrations! ( Andy Warhol was the design houses in-house illustrator) Henri Bendel was the first retailer to really brand himself and quickly became a major name in New York. Everyone wanted to be seen with a Henri Bendel bag!
After some rebranding, Henri Bendel tapped into the group of Twenty Something Girls just trying to live life and look fashionable! From world famous bloggers to college girls just trying to pass college algebra and everyone in-between and beyond Henri Bendel has become a brand that appeals to everyone!
I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Henri Bendel Family!
