^ Quoted in Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion (10th ed. 1993) edited by John Walker. Almost 70 years after Lombard's death, the Sunday Times described red lipstick as the "ne plus ultra [not further beyond] of make up ... We respect red lipstick as a badge of loveliness and youth (Georgia May), bold style (Florence Welch), sexual confidence (Scarlett Johansson) and old-school glamour (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley) – and, above all, we appreciate that it doesn't work for everyone": Shane Watson in Style, 4 December 2011.

When the weather gets too cold for shorts, bohos turn to two distinct types of trousers to provide them with coverage and style. The first of these trouser types is jeans. Jeans are a wardrobe staple for every gent and bohemians are no exception. To pull off the bohemian look, ensure that your jeans are the appropriate off-duty style. Forego the sharp, dark denim you wear to the office on casual Friday, and opt for a rugged and ripped, light or mid-blue jeans instead. A slim silhouette is best while cuffed legs are optional. While these jeans suit the easy-going nature of bohemian style, pleated trousers create an old-world feel that suits its vintage feel. Wear them slightly baggy in the leg and belted at the waist to complete the style.
Create a free-spirited look with a woven multi-color fabric backpack; with its vibrant colors, it's a perfect carryall. Stay classic with a bold leather clutch crafted in India to bring a global, sophisticated edge to your look for the night. Pair it with a fashionable maxi dress, keeping a pashmina close by for a light and fashionable way to keep warm. Expand your eclectic and festival-inspired wardrobe to get that great bohemian-chic look. And because each piece is handcrafted, no two items are exactly alike.

In the United States adherents of the "beat" counter-culture (probably best defined by Jack Kerouac's novel, On the Road, set in the late 1940s, written in 1952 and published in 1957) were associated with black polo-neck (or turtle neck) sweaters, blue denim jeans and sandals. The influence of this movement could be seen in the persona and songs of Bob Dylan in the early to mid-1960s, "road" films like Easy Rider (1969) and the punk-oriented "New Wave" of the mid-1970s, which, among other things, produced a boho style icon in Deborah Harry of the New York band Blondie, whom photographer David LaChapelle has described as "the definition of cool".[82] (However, as with some American musicians of the mid-1960s, such as Sonny and Cher, Blondie came to international prominence only after a tour of Britain in 1978.[83])

Love the vibrant colors (photo is accurate for brightness and colors), the flow of this dress, and of course the pockets. I bought size small and medium not knowing which size would be best based on other reviews. The small fits perfect except like other people have said, the arm area is a little too small. The medium was way too big on my chest though. I would recommend to buy your “usual” size unless you have a larger chest and/or broad shoulders, then likely go a size up. I don’t think the dress is that heavy; it’s pretty light and comfortable. Would buy again!
By the late 1960s shops such as Laura Ashley (whose first London outlet opened in 1968[121]) were routinely promoting the "peasant look" and selling a range of "uniquely eccentric clothes ... The magic was being able to step into a 'Laura Ashley' dress and imagine you had found something out of a dressing-up box".[122] At around the same time too, and into the 1970s, the brassière (or bra), which, as noted, had been seen as a liberating innovation in the early part of the century, came to be regarded by some women, such as the Australian academic Germaine Greer (The Female Eunuch, 1969), as an unduly restrictive symbol of traditional womanhood. However, the much-publicised incidence of "bra burning" in the 1970s tended to be overstated and came to be satirised: for example, in the 1973 film, Carry On Girls, and a poster by Young & Rubicam,[123] one of a mildly subversive series for Smirnoff vodka: "I never thought of burning my bra until I discovered Smirnoff". It was also seen by many, including Greer herself, as a distraction from the cause of women's "liberation".[124] A Vermont lawyer later observed wryly that "like every good feminist-in-training in the sixties, I burned my bra", but that "now it's the nineties ... I realize Playtex [underwear manufacturer] had supported me better than any man I know."[125] Claire Perry, who became a Conservative Member of Parliament in 2010 and later a government minister, reflected that, as a "women's officer" at Oxford University in the early 1980s, she was "a bra-burning feminist with a hideous new-romantic haircut", but that her feminism had, in her view, matured.[126]
By the mid-1980s, the American singer Madonna had turned the bra into a positive, even provocative, fashion statement. Madonna's flamboyant and gritty style (notably seen to bohemian effect alongside Rosanna Arquette in the 1985 film, Desperately Seeking Susan) was, in turn, a precursor of so-called "girl power" that was associated in the 1990s with various prominent young women (such as singers Courtney Love, who played the 1999 Glastonbury Festival in a headline-grabbing pink bra,[127] and the more commercially oriented Spice Girls) and offbeat or quirky American television series (Xena: Warrior Princess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Caroline in the City, Sex and the City).

I LOVE this dress. I had been having some bad days lately where I've been hating the way all of my clothes look on my body (I'm a bigger girl, roughly 180lbs and 5 feet tall) so I ordered this dress as a hope it'll cheer me up and boy did it. It's so flattering on me, and fits perfectly. I was so excited by how much I loved this dress that I immediately ordered another one in another color. I wish there were more color options (I would die for a black one with flowers on it) so I could wear it everyday. I don't remember the last time I bought something that I loved this much and that made me feel this confident. My only issue is I'll need to hem it a little since it just barely drags on the ground, but that's standard for being short ... full review
