Lately I’ve been obsessed with accessories and handbags- and Henri Lou has it all! The designer at Henri Lou has been making incredible pieces of art, and has created a beautiful line of accessories and bags that are quickly spreading throughout the country as I write this. Celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Julia Roberts and Kristen Bell have all been spotted wearing something from Henri Lou. Carrying a fantastic variety of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, handbags, and rings, you’re sure to find something to go with what you’re wearing. I’ve included my favorites in the collage above, and you can see the bracelet and earrings Henri Lou provided for this inside look as well.
The pieces that were given to me to sample are gorgeous and very intricate! I was given the Dearest earrings in pink amazonite and sterling silver, and the Mini Lil H bracelet in Seafoam as a courtesy for reviewing their site.
The earrings are very flattering for the shape of my face, and are quite dainty– I love dainty things. It’s like when I was a little girl pretending to be a princess; it just makes me feel good about myself They are created with pink amazonite, which is far less common than the green you generally see. This is not a cheap gemstone! I looked it up for more information and even the wholesale price was shocking. I’ll be taking extreme care of these earrings and won’t be leaving them lying on the bathroom counter or coffee table like so many of my daily “costume jewelry” pieces. They are very light and subtle so not meant to be a statement piece, but on a daily basis I prefer a small addition to my wardrobe anyway. There is honestly nothing about these earrings that I didn’t like!
Henri Lou has so many styles of leather bracelets, it took me a few minutes to match up the bracelet I was given to sample. Hah! The last thing I want to do is go around broadcasting my enjoyment of an accessory and it’s not even the right one. The Mini Lil H is the smallest of the small. I chose this piece specifically because of my scrawny wrists. You can see in the photos about that it STILL looks like a thick/medium sized wristband. You can also see that the color is difficult to capture. I took six different shots and ALL of them came out differently, even in similar lighting. When it’s in direct sunlight it becomes extremely bright, which you can clearly see in the bottom left picture. In the shade, it’s much closer to the depiction given on the website, which is a deep turquoise. This band is thick leather that is very sturdy and goes perfectly with mint (gives that perfect pop). I know some people choose not to wear leather, and that is your choice, but I won’t lie that I really like the feel of the bracelet, along with it’s rich color.
I also wanted to give their handbags a HUGE shout out, as two of their creations are on my current Autumn wish list. You’ll be seeing some around as I mention them now and again. Make sure that you follow Henri Lou on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates and new products.
