Get the Bohemian Look

Bohemian Chic - Top Trend

If you haven't already noticed, the bohemian look is the hottest trend of the moment. Inspired by gypsies, ethnic patterns and the '70s hippie scene, the boho trend is all about looking like you just threw on some clothes without thinking. African, Indian and Asian prints are combined with western pieces that allow you to mix and match clothes to create your own unique look. It's comfortable, earthy and feminine. But the best thing about the boho wardrobe? It's cheap - just scour thrift stores for cool vintage finds, like beaded tanks, lace scarves and eclectic jewelry.

Bohemian Chic - Get the Look

To be a bohemian beauty, you'll need to put away those skin-tight clothes. Skirts are the star of this fashion trend, so look for peasant or prairie skirts in solid colors (think chocolates, teals and rich burgundies) or ethnic-inspired prints, which you can wear with plain, fitted tanks and flip flops. If you're not into skirts, then pair your jeans with embroidered tops or floaty tunics. And don't worry about overdoing it - bohemian clothes look great with layered accessories so pile on some long necklaces and chunky bracelets, wrap a funky belt around your waist and step out in boots or beaded sandals.

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
