I’m so happy to be joining up with Jen Huang and Poppies & Posies for this three-day workshop series in April. It will be a beautiful setting in Santa Barbara and a great opportunity for folks to settle in to learn and practice photography, event design and calligraphy.

cindy sherman : for louis vuitton

Posted: November 6th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: apparel, art, things, travel | No Comments »



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.
