Step Up Salon – An Evening at Henri Bendel

I’ve been an active member since 2003 of Step Up Women’s Network – a national non-profit membership organization dedicated to strengthening community resources for women and girls. Through teen empowerment programs for under-served girls, professional mentorship and social networking opportunities, Step Up educates and activates members to ensure that women and girls have the tools they need to create a better future.

On May 6th, 2010, the Henri Bendel accessories store in Los Angeles hosted an evening with over 70 women in attendance that included social networking, cocktails, and shopping.  They also made a generous $2500 contribution to Step Up to benefit the organization.

For those who know me well, I’m always game for a philanthropic shopping event that involves accessories. I’m like a little kid in a candy store when I’m surrounded by jewelry, handbags, scarves, etc. Bendel’s was merchandised beautifully with their signature chocolate brown stripe noticeable at each corner of the store whether incorporated in display, packaging or product.  I couldn’t have been happier soaking in all the creative visuals.

It was a fun evening mingling with dynamic women who support and inspire other women!
