I’m not gonna lie. I’ve always fancied myself to be a bit of a hippie chick. My friends and family are probably laughing at this, but let me explain. I mean, I’ve got the hair, the more-often-than-not relaxed attitude and the loving spirit. I eat organic, brake for animals and eschew bras unless absolutely necessary. But, does this make me more of a hippie chick or a yuppie chick? In many ways, the two are becoming interchangeable. Both are all about the locally grown co-ops, electric cars (or the even more chic bikes!) and handmade goods. What once was hippie has now become yuppie. Let’s face it. My waves were put in by a curling iron, I drove to the farmers market in a non-hybrid car and my darling dog was purchased, not rescued, from a (gasp!) breeder. So maybe I’m not a bonafide hippie chick. But, that doesn’t mean that I can’t look like one from time to time. Nothing gives off that free love attitude faster than billowing bell bottoms and sky high platforms. Add a lacy vest to the mix and you just might think I’ve stumbled out of Woodstock. Yeah right. But, at least I can get the look without forgoing my razors and weekly blowouts. Less hippie chick, more hippie chic. Which is cool. Because I’m easygoing like that.
