BALI HAI'S AND LOWS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was a taste of South Pacific at 7th and Montana yesterday as an Anonymous Islander took fashion trends to a new Bali Low. "Yikes, get a load of that," said one onlooker as the Islander, a woman in her early fifties, walked by wearing an Extra Large Mu-Mu festooned with Lilies. Her hair was arranged in a bun so tightly wound it sat on her head like a cobra ready to strike. An Oversized Blossom dangled precariously from her scalp. "I'm on it," I said, grabbing my camera phone and following her up 7th Street. And then, just as I was ready to take her picture, she turned to face me. I tried to cover my tracks, pretending as usual to send someone a text message, but the jig was up. She shot me a look like an Angry Volcano God, then continued along her merry way.
