Henri Bendel is known by its nickname ‘The Playground’ by any fashionista familiar with their must-have signature handbags, jewelry, and accessories. Washington, D.C. is my playground, and this bag is positively a must-have for looking chic in the streets. Perfect for daytime, it is made of durable nylon, and I was also quite pleased with how it retains it’s shape. It’s nylon, but it’s beautifully structured and doesn’t dent or collapse into an unattractive shape.
I debuted my yellow Jetsetter on Capitol Hill, and it allowed me to enjoy a day lunching with friends, running errands, and walking the sites with the added luxury of being hands-free. My next stop was The White House, where I traversed down to the basement to roll a few strikes on historic lanes in the President’s bowling alley. A true Bendel Girl, this ultimate accessory made me the chicest bowler in Washington, and it’s indisputably the hautest bipartisan bag to hit The Hill in some time.
