Fashion is Ironic

I don't know why, but today I felt like looking up the history of bohemians. Well actually I do know why. People say I dress it. So, I wanted to find out who they were and what they were really like. According to Wikipedia, they were pretty much like gypsies and lived very artistic lives. Today we think of bohemian fashion as expensive brands that use earthy colors and design flowy clothing. I find it ironic that people these days try so hard to seem like they don't care too much about fashion just to seem like a bohemian (by they, I mean people like me who think the bohemian style is divine) and that real bohemians didn't give a hoot about fashion or what they looked like. They were usually just so darn poor that the clothing they had was too big and did not fit properly. This is what we aim for:


And this is what they really were:

That's a proper title for this post. Bohemians really didn't care that much before, but these days a lot of people want that look! Very ironic!

Haha, very true! These days, many of us actually make a conscious effort to look effortless when we get dressed. We want to look stylish but not like we're trying too hard.
