Boho Fabulous

I know, I know, "Boho" style has been around now a couple of years - the throw back to the late 60s - early 70s resurrected by many celebs such as, Nicole Richie, Sienna Miller, Fashion Stylist/Designer, Rachel Zoe, among many many other famous or not. I myself fell into this look and style probably 20 years ago or so.

To me, before the terms "Boho" or "Bohemian Chic" were coined, I thought of it as a "Earth Maiden / Hippie fabulous". I guess they are synonymous terms, but, there's something about the words "Boho Chic" that just work.

It seems that with the ever increasing popularity of musical festivals such as Coachella (here in my home town of Palm Desert - well it's in neighboring Indio), the thousands and thousands of woodstock wannabees are working this look..... some work it good..... others, not so good. But just the same - this look is so much fun to watch and even more fun to wear. Even if some fall into the "not so good", the sentiment remains and you can't help but smile amidst the maxi dresses, crochet everything, and Goddess head jewelry.

Have you been wanting to give Boho a try? It's so easy but, it does take a certain knack to create your own look - it shouldn't look to studied - you know, like you're trying to hard..... it just has to happen. When it does, you'll know its good. Stay tuned for a little rundown on how to make this look your own - wear it and live in it........

Bohemian Chic living........ this is a story for another day.... let me just say..... Ikat, leather, Moroccan, Suzani - are all key words/styles/materials for this look. Just thinking about it makes me smile and makes me want to head out to the beach in my crocheted coverup and mocassins......... so simple, yet so good. More to come...... (photo credits -,, )
