The newest arrival of fashion on Michigan Avenue is now NY based and acclaimed Henri Bendl. Henri Bendl is a store founded for fashion and fun. We loved visitng with Joshua Graham one of the store’s stylists. He explained the signature pieces, the branding, the crystals and the service to us, all while we tried on bangle after bangle, c tiger striped crystal earrings and a few hand bags. After our purchases were secured, we lwere wowed at seeing it wrapped in the chocolate and white striped packaging and grosgrain ribbons embellished with white polka dots. Fun, fashion and fresh! All of our words for Bendl.

Recently when visiting Chicago, I visited the Gucci Store www.gucci.com to see what was the newest and latest. Perched on several shelves facing fashionable Oak Street was the Bouvier Bag, now known as the Jackie O Bag. The clerk told me the history of this bag. I thought it was interesting and thought I would share it with you. After researching, I found this information and thought you would like to read it too. I loved Jackie’s classic style and it was fun to learn the the history of this bag. Which one of the bags do you like the best? In case anyone has my name for Christmas, I will take the grey one.
“We can count on Gucci for styles that we love now and later. Gucci is always in front the cutting edge of fashion and wins countless applause for their master pieces. It has been named in top 40 songs since the 1970s and is frequently mentioned in hip-hop music where material goods make or break status. For style-conscious women everywhere, owning a Gucci purse, Gucci wallet, or a pair of Gucci sunglasses is the ultimate status symbol.
Gucci possesses an inborn sense of creativity and innovation which has produced numerous stylish and eye-catching handbags. We can make quite the fashion statement with the Gucci handbag we choose to use. Gucci handbags are not only renowned for their high quality materials. Their suave style offers elegance and luxury, very suitable for ladies who want a timeless glamour, not a flashy trend. Perhaps the most famous icon of this house of fashion is the Jackie O. shoulder bag which was worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis when she was the wife of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. While mentioned Jackie Onassis, people often associate the classic handbag, Gucci Jackie Bag with her.
The classic Jackie O. shoulder bag is made of top quality leather and denim with jacquard double G pattern and a unique metal push/slide closure. Gucci recently launched a brand New Jackie Bag. New Jackie O. shoulder bag is more variation with a distinctive color like jewel green, wine red and deep tan. I like the tan leather new Jackie bag so much. It features single adjustable strap with woven detail. A wide shoulder strap ensures it will sit comfortably on your shoulder and the interior is fully lined with a contrasting silky material. The sheer size of the bag means that it is plenty big enough. It is perfectly elegant for holding all your daily essentials. Available in some fantastically bright colors for the spring and summer season this is a bag that will get you noticed for all the right reasons, glamour and elegance. This new large Jackie shoulder bag comes with Gucci controllato card, Gucci care card, and Gucci logo dust bag. If you own this Gucci handbag, you are definitely part of a worldwide fashion powerhouse.
The founder Guccio Gucci opened a small leather store in 1921 in Florence, Italy. Guccio exhibited the same talents his father possessed, making functional pieces that reflected his exposure to European designs. Since then, the brand has developed into one of the world’s most esteemed fashion houses. Nowadays Gucci Company is more competitive than before. Owning a Gucci handbag like the classic Jackie bag would be your best choice.”
