City Pulse

By Jennifer Witt


If you’re a bona fide “‘Girl About Town”, as is yours truly, then you treat the divine Henri Bendel, as a temple, a mecca at which you regularly pay homage to the Gods of Fine Shopping. I stopped going to places of conventional worship long ago, but my true religion is my allegiance to all things beautiful and if the clothes, jewels, makeup and accessories of Bendel’s doesn’t make me exclaim “Sweet Jesus!“ or “Lord Have Mercy!“ then nothing will! I thanked the heavens once again when I found out that Bendel’s is now hosting a weekly Girls Night (every Wednesday starting with a 6pm happy hour) called “Lessons in Love, Lipstick and Lingerie,“ where a team of experts (everyone from best-selling authors/experts on relationships to celebrity makeup artists ready to give you a whole new look) are on hand, doling out great advice, freebies and answering all the questions you’ve been burning to ask, but never had the expert to answer. Each week is a new topic, each session, a new theme, so you can attend every single event until you become as much an expert on all topics-‘femme’ as the professionals! Lotus? Bungalow 8? I don’t think so! Change your Wednesday night plans, this is the NEW place to see and be seen, girls!
