ALIX of BOHEMIA

THE GYPSY TAILOR

FEBRUARY SUCKS

ALIX of BOHEMIA

SO WE MAY HAVE MASTERED THE OBVIOUS STATEMENT, ABOUT THE SUCKAGE OF THE MONTH, BUT REALLY WHAT ELSE IS NEW? (CREATURES OF HABIT ARE WE) SO DEEP IN THE DREDGES OF THIS NEW ENGLAND WINTER WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DIG OURSELVES OUT. (WE HAVE ALSO MASTERED MELODRAMA) IN THE MEANTIME, A FEW THINGS WHICH ARE HELPING US KEEP WARM (ASIDE FROM BOURBON AND FUR):

1.

YOU'RE LOOKING PALE. YOU NEED SOME COLOUR TO REMIND YOU SPRING WILL COME AGAIN, DARLING. SAY IT WITH MASAI.

2.

FISHERMAN KNITS ALWAYS WIN. AND THEY PAIR SO NICELY WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED BOURBON.

3.

THIS IS WHAT WE USE WHEN WE PRETEND TO BE GROWN-UPS THAT TAKE CARE OF OUR SKIN. IT ALSO SMELLS LIKE AN APOTHECARY, WHICH SEEMS VERY BOHEMIAN.

4.

BECAUSE MIRO BREAKS IT DOWN, AND REMINDS US OF SIMPLE BEAUTY, PURE FORM AND PRIMARY COLOUR.

5.

ALICE WATERS IS A TOTAL PIONEER AND A BABE, AND THE STORY OF HER RESTAURANT IS COMPLETELY INSPIRING. IF WE CAN'T BE IN BERKELEY EATING AT CHEZ PANISSE RIGHT NOW, WE MAY AS WELL BE READING ABOUT IT. 

6.

MEMORIES OF TULUM, AND OUR GREEN FRANKIE SHORTS.

7.

OUR HANDS ARE OUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET. (THEY'RE THE MONEYMAKERS, HONEY) AND WE'VE BEEN KEEPING THEM WARM WITH SHEARLING FROM BARNEY'S (WHERE ELSE?) GET THEM HERE.

8.

ALIX OF BOHEMIA GEORGIA COAT. OK, SO WE'RE BIASED BECAUSE WE BIRTHED HER. BUT SHE MAKES US FEEL LIKE A KACHINA DOLL, OR POCAHONTAS, WHICH IS A VERY SUITABLE CHARACTER. GET IT HERE. 

9.

LOVE STORY: POSSIBLY THE WORST SCRIPT EVER WRITTEN. ALSO POSSIBLY ONE OF THE BEST FILMS EVER. ALI'S WARDROBE AND 70'S RYAN O'NEIL ARE ENOUGH EYE CANDY TO FORGIVE THE ROMANCE AND CLICHES. 

10.

THIS IS MAGIC TEA.

11.

ONE OF THE BROTHERS BOHEMIA GIFTED US A PAINTROLLER, AND WE'VE BEEN GOING TO TOWN ROLLING FABRIC. (IDLE HANDS MAKE FOR DEVIL'S WORK)

12.

THIS IS OUR NEW TELEPHONE. ITS GREEN, NOT WHITE LIKE ALL THIS DAMN SNOW.

 

(BROTHER BOHEMIA IN THE SNOW. HEYYYY BROTHER)

EXCUSE  US WHILE WE LISTEN TO THIS AND PRETEND WE ARE IN MEXICO.
