Henri Bendel Travel Bags

18th July 2011

A friend at work recently told me about her great Bendel travel bags and I’m obsessed! The set comes with three bags – one for laundry, lingerie and shoes – inside another reusable dust bag. So, you you really get four travel bags for $38. I think I’ll use them forever – so timeless and handy!

Check out Bendel’s site for other great “Pretty Bendel Things.” They have adorable collections of beach travel bags, “go anywhere” bags and a travel adaptor.

Such a clever idea!


Amen. Stop waiting around for your life to start.


Parisian Chic

2nd June 2011

I’m a total francophile. I have an entire shelf of books about French life, culture and style. My newest edition is one of my favorites of all time, Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange. It reminds me of Three Black Skirts by Anna Johnson, which was my bible in my twenties. I’m thinking Parisian Chic is my new bible for my thirties.

Like Three Black Skirts, Parisian Chic is about more than just fashion. Ines speaks to French beauty, entertaining, wellness, decor and family. She also takes readers through a guided tour of Paris – her favorite shops, restaurants and boutique hotels.

And then there’s the fabulous fashion! Ines captures the true essence of Parisian style in a way I’ve never seen before. She covers the basics to any woman’s wardrobe: a men’s blazer, navy sweater, trench coat, little black dress, jeans and a leather jacket.

But, she also speaks to the clever combination of accessories and apparel that make Parisian women so chic. For instance:

  • A sequin sweater with men’s trousers (not a skirt)
  • Jeans with gem-crusted sandals (not heels)
  • A pearl necklace with a rock-and-roll t-shirt (not with a simple shift dress)
  • An evening dress with ultra-plain, open-toed sandals (not with the gem-crusted evening variety)

Needless to say, I’m totally inspired. Buy the book. It’s worth every penny.
