ALIX of BOHEMIA

THE GYPSY TAILOR

ADVENTURE: STARTING SUMMER

Alix Verley PietrafesaComment

SO,

AFTER YOU'VE HAD AN EPIC WEEKEND WITH MORE FUN AND BEAUTY THAN ANY NORMAL PERSON SHOULD HAVE IN A TWO DAY PERIOD,

THIS IS ACTUALLY WHAT THE MONDAY BLUES LOOK LIKE:

AND THAT IS VERY BLUE, IN DOUBLE DENIM, AND APPARENTLY DRAGGED THROUGH A DRAIN. 

LET'S BACK UP A COUPLE OF DAYS TO RELIVE OUR ADVENTURE. POST SHOW IN NEW YORK WE NEEDED TO FILL THOSE LUNG WITH SOME FRESH AIR FRIEND!

IT'S GONNA BE FUN.

ON SATURDAY WE RISE AND SHINE, VALENTINE, EXTRA EARLY. AND WE FIGURE THE BEST COSTUME FOR THE DAY IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT RUSTIC. WE'RE CHANNELING LEE KRASNER WHEN SHE WAS HANGING WITH POLLACK, SEE? THIS INVOLVES OUR FIRST PAIR OF SNEAKERS, LIKE EVER, AND A LEATHER BACKPACK FROM THE 80'S.

WE FIND A GIANT AND CONVINCE HIM TO GET ON A BOAT WITH US.

THE BOAT SPEAKS TO US. APPARENTLY WE SHOULDN'T SIT ON LIFE. LUCKY FOR US THERE'S NO TIME FOR SITTING, NO REST FOR WICKED GIRLS,

WE'RE ONLY MOVING FORWARD TODAY. 

IT WAS SO FRIGID THIS NEW ENGLAND MORNING WE HAD TO DON EVERY BIT OF PATAGONIA WE OWNED. FOR THE RECORD, PATAGONIA IS ACTUALLY THE OPPOSITE OF BOHEMIA, BUT WE'RE HAPPY TO CHEAT ON OURSELVES IF IT MEANS STAYING COZY. 

THINGS STARTED TO LOOK FAMILIAR. SO WE FIGURED WE WERE ON THE RIGHT TRACK.

TIME TO GET DOWN AND DIRTY AND INTO ISLAND LIFE

THE BLOCK THROWS US A BONE,

AND THEN AN ENTIRE SKELETON. WE DO LIKE A GOOD BIT OF BONE NOW AN AGAIN.

THE ISLAND IS ALWAYS GIVING US PRESENTS LIKE THAT.

THEN IT WAS TIME FOR THE MAIN EVENT.

THE BLUFFS. (NO BLUFFING. WE KID YOU NOT)

AND THE SUN BROKE THROUGH WITH THE PROMISE OF SUMMER, AND TRIGGERING THE NOSTALGIA OF THIS PLACE; MEMORIES OF BEING SMALL AND WALKING UP THE STEPS WITH AS MANY ROCKS AS WE COULD CARRY, HOVERING OVER A TURQUOISE WATER. 

WE TOTALLY FOUND THE TREASURE:

BETTER THAN DIAMONDS. 

THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE PERFECT PLACE FOR US TO REST OUR WEARY SOULS

YOU KNOW HOW WE'RE SUCKERS FOR TURQUOISE AND BLUE. EVERYONE'S GOT THEIR VICE, WE SUPPOSE. 

WE FILL OUR BELLIES TO THE BRIM WITH A PICNIC, AND THEN BIKE HIKE ALLOVER HELLS HALF ACRE, BREATHING IN THE GREEN AND BLUE.

AND SOON ENOUGH ITS SUNDOWN, AND TIME TO RETREAT FROM THIS HEAVENLY PLACE. 

SO HAPPY ARE WE THAT WE BARELY EVEN NOTICE THE VERY FUNKY SUNBURN WE MANAGED TO GET ON OUR ANKLE. (WHICH SORT OF RESEMBLES A RED SOCK)

BACK ON THE BOAT AND BACK TO REALITY. 

OR SOME VARIETY OF REALITY:

A SONG OF SUMMER FOR YOU: 

HAPPY MONDAY BLUES AND GREENS, CHILDREN OF THE SEA AND SKY.

 

SEE YOU SOON.
