Henri Bendel: Must Have Handbags & Wish List
Over the years I have become a huge Henri Bendel fan. It all started about five years ago when my older sister came home with the black nylon Jetsetter Convertible Backpack. I instantly fell in love and I knew that one day I needed to get myself that bag, eventually I did…and then some.
In this post, I will be showing you the must have bags I own from Henri Bendel and what I currently have on my ever growing wish list! They are constantly adding new bags to their collections, that I feel like I can never catch up, but I do strive to get what I like when I can afford it and when I really want it. Henri Bendel has become my go-to brand and I absolutely love it.

My Thoughts on these Handbags and Accessories
I could tell you I have favorites, but then I could tell you those favorites change depending on the situation which I need the bag for. Right now the Rivington Convertible’s are my two favorite bags to use. Why? Because they are extremely convenient. I love that you can unattach the front and use that as a clutch or cross body. I have been using the larger Rivington as an everyday bag for work, where as I used the mini Rivington as a weekend bag when I was down in Miami and it was extremely useful – I didn’t carry a lot of the crap I normally do, I kept it to minimal stuff I would need, and it still fit everything I needed and then some.
Another favorite of mine is the South Street Carry All. This is AMAZING for travel. It fits absolutely EVERYTHING. Another bag I take with me while traveling is the Jetsetter Canvas Backpack. I use the Carry All as my personal belonging carry on item, and I pack the backpack for everyday use. I know I’ll be taking both with me to Vegas, and I might toss in the Waldorf Micro Party Bag for when we go out on the town. The Uptown Out & About Organizer wallet is my traveling go-to wallet. It doesn’t matter if it’s a weekend trip to Miami, or something like Vegas. It’s so convenient and it has space for everything you need. Definitely a traveling must have.
Honestly I love all my Henri Bendel stuff. I use them for different things. I can keep going on forever, but instead let’s move onto my current wish list!
First and foremost on my list is the new Dakota Studded Tote in Gunmetal/Hematite:
Next up is the West 57 Mini Trunk Clutch in Black with Gold detailing:
*side note* this can also be used as a cross body
The West 57th Trunk Crossbody Hobo in Port:
*I am not a huge fan of Hobo bags, but I absolutely love this one and I would wear it to travel or to explore even my own hometown!*
