Hippies, Bohemians, Gypsies, and Fashion
Okay, so by now I'm sure it's glaringly obvious that I'm a modern day hippy and bohemian... Yes, it's true, I was definitely born in the wrong era... Though, I'm beginning to think maybe I do belong in this one for some special reason, perhaps to touch a small part of the world with my idealistic free thinking, creative ambitions and eye for design, who knows? :)
Either way, there's something in me that can't resist hippy/bohemian/gypsy inspired fashion! Styles that mostly originated back in the 60's and 70's seem to be making a comeback into the hearts of the fashion world under the term "Boho-chic," but there are those of us who don't need the fashion world to dictate the orchestration of our style... For me, fashion is ruled by the same laws as interior design and decorating: personal taste and the expression of my personality, NOT trends. Anyway, here are some recent AND not so recent images of celebrities and common folk [and little extras] that portray the essence of bohemian style and hippy fashion.
