Instagram We Love: @alix_of_bohemia

Ikat, leopard, toile—oh my! Our Insta crush du jour knows a thing or two about mixing prints.

The psychedelic sixties, midcentury bohemians, the Summer of Love—these are the storied eras that gypsy tailor Alix Verley-Pietrafesa cites as her inspiration for her handmade line of attention-getting jackets. Take one look at her colorful and patterned-packed Instagram and you'll find it quite evident that this seamstress believes more-is-more when it comes to her one-of-a-kind threads. Polka dots and stripes? Ikat and leopard? Paisley and plaid? If you can dream it, @alexi_of_bohemia dares to make it. But be warned: clicking 'follow' will leave you reconsidering every single piece of your all-of-a-sudden bland wardrobe. 

Here, a pagoda-inspired fabric lines the inside of a blue-and-white sailor stripe and block-print-sleeved jacket. 

Alix's #floorcore snap shows off a folk-inspired frock in the making.

Already planning your winter escape? This palm-laden statement piece is perfect from the Caribbean to the Riviera. 

It's hard to resist a red, white, and blue interior, let alone a jacket made of the classic color trio.
