I think that might be why I like it so much right now. The last time boho/hippie style was big, back in the 02 seasons, I didn't like it, but now that it makes more then just a fashion statement it just seems to fit...it's good timing for it to come back into the limelight.

I wear this kind of clothes for work... It almost looks like it doesn't fit, but since noone is telling me nothing, I'll keep going!

urgh but we get lip service clothing ads for the sweet lolita page - ick!

to be honest I'm not crazy about the boho look. I've gone through phases where I liked elements of it, but I think I'm just so sick of seeing every single girl in my town trying (I reiterate: trying) to do it, it just seems really worn out and tired at this point.

but when someone does it well, I have to say that it can look really good. I think in order to do boho well, you have to be comfortable wearing brown and being mismatched. I hate brown and I hate being mismatched, so there you go.

I thought this was interesting. I didn't see this thread before softie, but the whole thread is great! Here's an article from the Guardian:

How to wear clothes

Jess Cartner-Morley
Saturday March 9, 2002

The Guardian


For fashion designers, there is a fine line between inspiration and plagiarism. Inspiration is about using references as a mood-board to create your own look; and, well, we all know what plagiarism is, and there's more of it on the catwalk than you can shake a tasselled belt at. But it's not just designers who are guilty. Us mortals do it, too: overstep the line between a knowing nod to current catwalk icons, and a puppyish reconstruction of an entire look.
The good news is, no one's going to sue you for it, even if you do decide to take the Talitha-Getty-on-Moroccan-roof-terrace look a bit too far and accessorise your chiffon kaftan with false eyelashes and pale lipstick. The bad news, however, is that even though you will be, strictly speaking, the height of fashion - Getty and her contemporaries being the catwalk heroines du jour - you will also look a total prat. Allow fashion to triumph over style, and you are a victim of designer brainwashing.

Retro looks are where you need to be most careful. Adopt them too readily and you'll look like the fashion equivalent of a stalker: someone who has subsumed their own life into a fantasy. But copycatting even contemporary looks piece for piece from one designer is a no-no. Instead of swapping your identity for that of an icon, you're swapping it for that of a mannequin. Which is a bit sad.

Whether it's Bianca Jagger or Laura Ingalls Wilder, keep references vague. Don't match your outfit, accessories and make-up. Buy trend pieces that work with your existing wardrobe. If you try on a dress and think, oooh, I love that; I just need new shoes and coat, to cut my hair and move to Mexico, and I'm set - then, frankly, it's not you. And unless it's a fancy dress party, you'll always look better as you.

I think she makes some interesting points, i can see what she's getting at.
