Hey guys!! Today’s post is Part 1 of a special collab with one of my dream companies, Henri Bendel! I have been a Bendel girl for YEARS now, and I’ve literally used my carryall satchels, West 57th Backpack and zip wallets countless times. You’ve seen me feature HB bags in lookbooks and product reviews (here, here and here) on my YT channel, so it’s a pleasure to finally feature them on the blog. Today’s look is all about the new Influencer Mini Backpack in Poinsettia. It provides an adorable pop of holiday color to my wardrobe, and I hope you enjoy how I styled it.
I’d like to introduce you to the latest member of the family: the Influencer Mini Backpack in Poinsettia. It’s the adorable, softer little sister to my larger West 57th backpack, and it’s jam packed with special details! First, the triple straps allow you to transform this baby three different ways! You can (1) wear it as a traditional backpack, (2) snap off the straps and only use the wristlet/clutch band or (3) use one strap and turn it into a crossbody sling bag. Second, I appreciate the pockets for organization! Theres an interior pocket, a secret back slip pocket, a zippered front pocket where I keep my powder compact and lip balm and an outer perforated open pocket for customizable pins and patches. Third, despite being “mini”, it’s large enough to comfortably fit my full sized West 57th Zip Around Continental Wallet, iPhone 7 Plus, a few makeup essentials AND my keys! Lastly, The soft pebbled leather feels great and the color just puts me in the holiday mood.
This mini backpack is a great option for you girls on-the-go that need just the essentials and want to be hands-free. Comes in four different colors!
To up the swag factor, HB also has a wide variety of baubles you can add to your new baggie! Mine is decked out with the Influencer luggage tag bag charm (comes in 7 different colors and can also be customized!), HENRI Influencer Key Fob, Embroidery Patch sticker set, and crystal pin from the stars & hearts set.
Outfit Details: I wanted to create a neutral cream base to complement the Blake scarf, so I paired a marled mock neck ruffle hem sweater dress with neutral over the knee boots, then layered a plum colored coat on top as a secondary color to the bag.
Next, the Blake Cashmere Scarf. 100% cashmere. 100% luxury. This scarf comes in three neutral colors, and they all sport contrasting ribbed ends and signature Henri bendel crystal studs. Ultra soft with a touch of glam, the Blake is an elegant scarf for your fall to winter wardrobe.
Arm candy, anyone? Create the perfect, versatile arm stack by layering different finishes, sizes and levels of glitz. I started with the classic Screw You Baby cuff for an edgy base, then added the adjustable Channel Set Slider bracelet for some BLING and then finished off the trio with the Deco Petite Hinged Cuff. I went for a dark and moody vibe with the black finishes, but the gold and crystal pops keep a nice balance.
Lastly, you could never go wrong with a slick pair of aviators. Throw some chic shade with the Dylan Aviators which features hematite mirrored lenses with a floating gold wire halo for a subtle, futuristic look.
And that’s all for Part 1, loves! Thank you, Henri Bendel, for partnering with me and making another career dream come true. Thanks to my photographer, Adrienne, for being such a talented queen and friend to me. and Thank you SO MUCH for swinging by and supporting my blog! I hope you are having a beautiful day out there. all my love, -E
