Bukowskis Instagramed!

As I told you in this post before I'm working as a stylist for Bukowskis right now, in preparation for their Vintage and Jewelry auction, that will take place on March 12th! I get to see, and work with, a lot of goodies at this place, so I've instagramed quite a few things during the week I've spent there. The ones of you following me on Instagram or Twitter (MissC_Meadows) might already have seen these photos, but for the ones of you that hasn't, here they come!

Hermès tie with little teddy bears!

Close up of one of the chandeliers for sale.

A Hermès Kelly bag!!! If you buy a completely new one of these bags you'll have to pay around 17,000-19,000 USD! (Over 100,000 SEK)! At the upcoming auction it might me sold for about one third of that price, so if you want it, March 12th is the day to shop! And yes, you can bid from other countries than Sweden too!

Guess who's coffee cup!

This is a big, heavy Louis Vuitton travel case from the turn of the 19th/20th century.

Here is photographer Fabulous Fabio fixing the f...f...f***k! There ended that lovely alliteration! Anyway. This is the the same travel case as in the picture above, but now open. Pretty ain't it?!

Here is another Louis Vuitton travel case, from the same era as the one above. This one is empty inside though. I felt a bit tired and tried to hide for a moment, but Fabio always finds me with that camera of his...

One of the days happened to be the official "Semla-day", so we all got creamy buns to devour!

A dress by Swedish designer Lars Wallin.

Close up! 

One day four of these "Liberace" couches arrived. A matching armchair and four mirrors also exist!

Close up of the "diamonds" in the backrest. These won't be sold at the auction, but you can still buy them at Bukowskis Market!

Another Market item - a banana penis made out of one dollar bills! It sparkles a bit too, and was made by Barton Lidice in 1986.

Here's Jenny, another photographer I'm styling for. In this picture she's wearing matching tennis shoes and bag from Chanel. 

Close up!

This I call "Gucci Still life"!

Here's me in my super heroine outfit - Louis Vuitton helmet and Chanel clips as pasties! The fishing rod is only there because of the string used for secret reasons...

In this photo I'm trying on a little necklace consisting of 630 brilliant-cut diamonds!!! All in all 11,0 ct!!! The reason I look a bitt "dull" in the picture is because I was in a state of chock...My pain-demon was bothering me a bit this day, but the diamonds made the pain so much better!

Then all by a sudden I noticed I had acquired a green Louis Vuitton tail...Ok. It was attached to the bag on my shoulder. But when carried like this the tail ends up in the right position...

On Thursday and Friday I will help styling the showroom before the auction. People who are interested in the objects for sale can then come look at it all from March 8th to March 11th, before the actual auction on March 12th! This Wednesday the catalog should also be ready for viewing!


  1. I adore those travel 'trunks' they are just so unpractical now. Have to laugh at the coffee cup, you can always tell which cup or glass is mine too!! X

    1. Those red lipstick marks are so good! I never lose my cup or glass when I'm at a party. I always knows which is mine! :) xo

  2. This is just more evidence that Instagram is something I really need to get, these photos are just great. That Liberace couch is my favourite of them all, just wow.

    1. I really like Instagram. Sometimes I don't take any pictures for days, but then all by a sudden I go into an Instagram-phase and take LOTS!!! Easy to share :) I also like those "Liberace" couches. Really cool! :) xx

  3. I want to cry I love that Kelly bag so much! Lol. These are fabulous instagram photos. I love that app.

    1. It's pretty crazy when you consider how much a new Kelly bag costs, and then it looks like the lady who handed it in to Bukowskis' auction hardly have used it... :) xo
