cindy sherman : for louis vuitton

I was surprised and intrigued to see artist Cindy Sherman's creation for Louis Vuitton's Iconoclasts series, in celebration of the brand's 160th anniversary. She created the Studio in a Trunk featuring drawers, a folding stool and adorned with vintage hotel labels -- as well as a Camera Messenger bag.

Fitted with a luxurious vanity case, a Camera Messenger bag and a total of 31 drawers (to accommodate treasures large and small), the trunk’s interior dazzles with hues borrowed from the plumage of Mister Frida, the artist’s pet macaw. The Studio in a Trunk is produced in a limited edition of 25.

November is here and Paper Tastebuds is making a comeback! Slow and steady but I'll be returning to the blog for more fun content this month after a couple months of being in a new-baby-bubble. I'm kicking it off with some kid stuff, which is sure to make an appearance more often now that its on my radar.

These are some funny and styling hair clips from Very French Gangsters, who specialize in eyewear for kids along with this stand-out accessory.

daame : leather laptop tote

daame laptop tote side The right laptop bag is hard to come by. I'm feeling this tote by Daame, a small new biz that launched with this product only. They donate 5% of all profits to a featured organization that supports women in some way.

Currently, donations go to Outliers International, dedicated to providing safety and education for girls in the village of Minawar, Pakistan where the literacy rate for women is as low as 12%.

Pre-order the tote ($395, was $465) which ships later in April.
