Hello, beautiful fam! Spring is HERE!!! Today, I’m celebrating this beautiful season transition with a two part series with Henri Bendel! I’ve been a Bendel girl for many years now, and I still love my entire collection to this day. I’ve featured my Henri Bendel collection during the holidays with my Influencer Backpack and Rivington Tote, in video fashion lookbooks and individual product reviews (here, here and here) on my YT channel, so it’s a pleasure to have them back on the blog!
For Part 1, I have the honor of styling two new handbags, a pom pom clutch, a skinny mini scarf and a few glitzy jewelry pieces from their latest Spring 2018 collection.
SCROLL DOWN for the full story + outfit details and be sure to tune in next month for Part 2! xoxo -E // Photography by my talented friend: Adrienne Y

West 57th Domed Satchel / Striped West 57th Backpack / Rivet Bangle / Pave Louis bracelet / Bendel Rocks Ring Hoop earrings / Raffia Pom Pom Pouch / Whimsy Sun Kissed Skinny Mini Scarf / West 57th Striped Small Jewelry Case
For anyone that needs a sizable, yet chic everyday bag – look no further than the West 57th Domed Satchel. Equipped with front & back exterior pockets plus zippered and open interior pockets, this classy bag has plenty of organization options for the fashionista on-the-go. I can easily isolate my keys and cell phone from the central area of my bag, which can comfortably fit my organizer, snacks, water bottle, light cardigan and wallet. It truly is the perfect medium size that fits your entire life without being too heavy and bulky. I personally love all the totes and satchels from the West 57th collection because they are functional, classic and enjoyable to use. This one’s just extra cute with the curved lip and sunburst keychain!!!

Next up, BLING BLING! I have been loving rose gold jewelry lately, so these Henri Bendel pieces stole my heart. For arm candy, I’m wearing the Swarovski-studded Pave Louis bracelet and their edgy elegant Rivet Bangle (they look great stacked!). The stunning Bendel Rocks Ring Hoop earrings feature a thick pave huggy hoop that can be worn alone OR with the metal hoops for a statement look. I love how this trio combines different finishes and materials while sticking to a feminine rosey color palette.
It’s POM POM TIME, PEOPLE! One of my FAVORITE things about spring and summer are all of the woven, raffia, straw, rattan and pom pom accessories! Adorable and full of character, they are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Today I have the HB Raffia Pom Pom Pouch that can be used as an interior tote organizer or a going out clutch!
Check out the entire pom pom family:
I also love that the bottom of the pom pom pouch is leather, making it sturdy and structured enough to hold its shape. It comes in this beige color or a punchy orange red color called “pureed pumpkin“!
Our second bag of the day is a classic favorite of mine – the West 57th Backpack in the new Sand Shell stripes! This backpack is by far the chicest city backpack I’ve ever seen. You can’t help but fall in love with it! The body is rounded, but super strong and sturdy. You even get a metal loop in the front for keychains and cute accessories! I have this backpack in black, so I was overjoyed to have a contrasting, lighter color for spring. These stripes remind me so much of seersucker, so it will also be a great companion into the summer season. If you love the hands-free nature of a backpack, but want an elegant looking handbag, check out the West 57th backpacks:
Love the double side pockets PLUS it has a secret exterior pocket in the back for more security! The handle on top also comes in handy when you’re on-the-go trying to get items in and out of the main compartment.
It’s a great companion for shopping or exploring the city because I can remain hands-free while still looking chic.
Remember the Bendel Rocks Ring Hoop earrings from my first look? Yep! Same ones! I took off the rose gold metal rings and wore the pave hoops by themselves.
Now hands down, one of my favorite Henri Bendel accessories are their skinny mini scarves! I have several colors in my collection to mix and match with different bags, and they have become such a versatile accessory in my wardrobe. The one I’m sporting in these two looks is the Whimsy Sun Kissed Skinny Mini Scarf. You can wear these mini scarves as a handbag accessory, a headband, a neck scarf or even a bracelet cuff. They are the perfect slim length and the colors and quality are TOPS. Worth every penny! Add a dash of luxe personality with this rainbow of options to choose from:
Lastly, if you need a handy travel case for your jewelry essentials, definitely check out Henri Bendel’s West 57th jewelry cases! I have the small sized case in the same striped pattern as my backpack. The perforated earring and ring belts sewn into the lid are SUPER HELPFUL for keeping my pairs together, but you also have the padded rolls if you prefer to wedge your pieces between the rolls. If this size is too small, don’t worry!! They have a larger size and they both come in a fabulous variety of colors!
HUGE THANK YOU to Henri Bendel for partnering with me on this post! I am a Bendel babe for life, so thank you all for supporting my dream! -xoxo E
