Brown-and-white stripes no more! After 123 years, the luxury retailer Henri Bendel will shutter all 23 brick-and-mortar stores this January. The brand was started by Henri Bendel in 1895 to cater to New York City’s elite. Now that it’s closing its doors, here’s what to purchase from the iconic brand before the opportunity is lost forever.
This iconic backpack is a best-seller for the brand, and you can easily see why. The chic bag can be worn as a backpack, crossbody or satchel and comes with convertible straps. Perfect for weekends away, the material is durable and water-resistant and touts the brand’s signature striped leather trim ($298).
Lipstick red and ready to make a statement, these smooth leather gloves boast crystal detailing and 100 percnt cashmere lining ($148). Pair the leather gloves with this matching About Town Pouch to really make a splash at any event you show up to ($98).
This eye-catching bag comes in both red/pink and blue/green. The geometric shapes and patterns give the satchel a bold, refined look. There is a pushlock flap closure, exterior back slip pocket and removable crossbody strap. Better yet? You get a gift with purchase when you order the bag ($328).
The perfect find for less than $100? This bright pink wristlet with signature stripes and a rose gold chain is sure to delight. To add even more flair, the back is bright red and bold. This little gem is ideal for a girls’ night out on the town ($98).
Henri Bendel knows how to do statement earrings. These gorgeous waterfall earrings dangle nearly four inches in length and shimmer with white, blue, red and pink gemstones in gold-plated brass. Oh la la! ($128)
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
