so … Bukowski’s. i can’t help myself. had a major browse through their Vintage & Jewellery catalogue which auctioned two days ago. tons of items from designer labels like ysl, louis vuitton & chanel (including chanel no.5 brooch which i thought was pretty cool) and you know, it’s all very beautiful – but what i was most interested in was the scarves. particularly the Hermès scarves, which i have always delegated to old lady territory until i became intrigued by the possibility of wearing head scarves last winter.

of course, wearing them around your neck is probably a good idea too. though i have never mastered the art of tying a delicate square silk scarf without it looking like a complete mess. and besides, you want to see the amazing prints right? these would go straight into frames on my walls, hypothetically. they sold for between € 150-350 each by the way…

    I love that dog scarf. Kind of hilarious & ridiculous but still elegant.

    I actually found the Jacquard Les Fetes du roi Soleil Hermes scarf at the salvation army for $1.00 two years ago. It’s amazing.
