What’s in my bag? is a recurring feature where I share a bit more about what style items are must-haves as STRUKTR Studios heads out of town or to an event.
Whew - what a whirlwind this Countdown To Modernism Week. So many giveaways, so much anticipation. Now Modernism Week is finally upon us! Today, we're packing our bags for Palm Springs. STRUKTR Studios is escaping to the desert to experience the best of Modernism Week's cocktail parties, panels, and architecture. Here's a peek at the essentials I'm bringing with me.
Bag: Vintage Louis Vuitton Monogram Sac Weekend Tote Bag
My go to travel bag, for everything from weekend trips to carry ons, is my vintage Louis Vuitton Monogram Sac Weekend Tote Bag. It was a wonderful gift from my mom. It was actually hers before it was mine. I remember it coming with us everywhere when I was a kid, always tucked in front of our seat on the plane and stuffed with snacks and extra sweaters - I even remember climbing into it, once or twice, on a flight.

Come Along With Us

I am ecstatic to announce that we've teamed up with our friends at Brooklyn-based Candylab Toys to give away one of their glamorous Woodies. We love Candylab for their 1960s-inspired, design-forward line of heirloom wood toys that are elegant, durable, and simple, It's the perfect way to conclude our slate of giveaways in honor of our Countdown To Modernism Week.
A little more about The Woodie from the folks at Candylab:
The most classic of the classics, this is what legends are made of. With real walnut veneer-paneled sides, and a magnet embedded in the roof, it comes with a surfboard that snaps onto it. This car also features a magnetic tow hook - allowing it to hitch our equally awesome trailer.
The best part is, when you win you can give the toy to your kid, or a kid at heart - we're not judging if you wanna keep it (cuz um, we'd totally keep it to!). To enter our giveaway, all you have to do is follow @struktrstudios and @candylabtoys on Instagram. Hurry, winner will be selected 2/15/17!
