Ring in the Holiday with Henri Bendel (& mark your calendar for Nov. 15th…)

By now you all know that I’m a Bendel’s girl. Their Fifth Avenue flagship store feels like a museum every time I visit — except better since I can actually play with the assortment and have the opportunity to purchase it. So naturally, any invite I get from them should come with an oxygen tank. Recently, I visited the office to peek the holiday collection, which I’m so excited to share with you!

But first, mark your calendar for November 15th! You’re invited to join, Chris Fiore, President of Henri Bendel for the unveiling of their holiday windows. Rumor has it Bendel’s is going 1920s style. Plus, you can see all the beauties I featured below up close and personal and for any purchase you make that evening 10% of the proceeds will benefit The Eric Trump Foundation Charity for Children.
