Leap into Fall with some Leopard Fashion

Leap into Fall with some Leopard...

Henri Bendel 

I wanted to do my first Fall Fashion post today and was pondering what to do it on. I had bought a few items recently that I could of used, but I decided to save them for an #OOTD post. I decided to pick something out from my wardrobe that is timeless, chic, and in a print that every woman should own at least one fashion item in. I picked my Henri Bendel Leopard Bag. I apologize that I don't remember the exact Clever Name that they had for it when I purchased it, but it was two winters ago. It is still in excellent condition, since I probably have used it maybe a handful of times.

I remember the year I bought it, Leopard was hotter than ever, I had always been a fan of the leopard print so it just made it more exciting to me. Knowing that a touch of leopard to an outfit never really goes out of style, I knew that this handbag was defiantly one to add to my collection. A handbag that I would cherish, take care of and hopefully hand down one day to my daughter that I hope to have.

Here are a few more Pictures of it:

Love The Gold Hardware!

Henri Bendel Bags always have the cutest little details!

Love the Purple Inside with the Pockets
and the Detachable Pocket Mirror!

Final Thoughts:

I am so glad that I pulled this purse out from my collection because I can't wait to use it this Fall. I am sorry that it is not a brand new bag that is still available, but I thought it was still a bag worth sharing. I have become so after excited reading the Fall and Winter Trend Reports and seeing that Leopard is making a come back (did it really ever go away). Although, I definitely think it is a print that should be used as a statement piece and I would not recommend wearing leopard Head to Toe. If you see me do this, ask me if I am ok??!! I have leopard jackets, scarves. gloves, tops. etc., but I would never wear more than one or two pieces at a time. I hope you enjoyed this post and that it got you excited for the Fall and maybe for some Leopard! I also wanted to add that I absolutely adore Henri Bendel as I have posted on their handbags and jewelry before. I think they make absolutely stunning and clever pieces! I believe the price is just right for the quality!  I am not going to say that they are inexpensive, but they are no where near the price of a LV bag and I would definitely say that they can hold their own!!

Mini Henri Bendel Haul

Mini Henri Bendel Haul

Today I feel like talking a bit of fashion. On my way to a department store. I walked by one of my favorite Stores, Henri Bendel. Ohh how I tried to look the other way and pretend I did not see it. Ohh how I tried to think of a million reasons why I should not go in. And I had them, believe me! But, alas, I came up with a good one to go in. It was snowing outside and I did not feel like driving home in it and I knew it was going to let up soon. So if I could just kill some time in Henri Bendel, the roads would get clear, and the drive home would be much safer!! Sounds good to me!

I walked in planning on just browsing ( I swear), but there it was! The sale section! They got me again! They had so many bags on sale at 50 to 60% off. That doesn't happen often at Henry Bendel. At least that I come across! Especially this many of them at one time. The counter was literally full and there was even some hanging. I saw the bag from a mile away. Maybe it was because it was everything I was looking for, maybe it was the Real Gold detailing that sparkled and caught my eye, we'll never know. What I do know is that, it was just what I was looking for. It was similar is the shape of the smaller version of the Louis Vuitton Speedy. I have the Original Speedy 30 (A lot bigger than this one) and it is about 5 years old. I absolutely love carrying it around because it is so light weight and well amazing, but it is getting to the point where I would like to retire it. I want it to be in good condition when I retire it, so that one day I can pass it along to the daughter that I hope to have one day:) This new Henri Bendel handbag was perfect to add to my fall winter handbag collection.

Well of course I could not just browse the handbag sale section. The also had some accessories on sale too. I had been recently looking for a gold tone pendant necklace and they had the perfect one on sale. I got really lucky that day! It was like it was meant to be. Don't you love those kinds of shopping days? The only one that I have that is similar is very old, real gold and Jade and belongs to my mother. And well, its only a matter of time before she asks for it back.

So here is my new Henri Bendel Bag: I hope you love it as much as I do.

Real Gold Detailing on the Mini Circle Studs on the Front and Bag Make it a Real Show Stopper!
Love the Classic Bendel Stripes on the side!
Love the Purple Lining and the Inside Zippered Pocket with a Bow!!
Perfect for you Gloss, Mints, Hand Sani & Moisturizer
The Necklace has a movable Clasp so you can make it any length you wish.
Close Up on the Pendant!

It looks really cool when where the necklace at a shorter length and you pull the extra length of the necklace over one side of your neck and it hangs with the cool tassels on the end. Or if you are wearing a low back shirt or dress and the necklace hangs down the back. Divine! It also comes in other pendant colors and the chain also comes in silver tone, but sadly they were not on sale at the time. But I will be watching!

I love wearing this necklace with my new bag. I just love knowing that the Purple Pendant matches the lining of my bag. It makes me feel oh so chic!
