Bohemian Goddess... <3

I love hippies. Had I of been born in the 40's and 50's, I would of been one. A REAL hippie that is... Not the stupid "hipsters" of my sad generation.

Hippie dress, which they believed was part of the statement of who you were, included brightly colored, ragged clothes, tie-dyed t-shirts, beads, sandals (or barefoot), and jewelry, all of which served to differentiate them from the “straight” or “square” mainstream segments of society. Their aversion to commercialism also influenced their style of dress. Much of their clothing was often purchased at flea markets or second hand shops.
