This bag is beautiful! However, it was inexpertly sewn. When I put my hand inside I noticed that the lining was not intact, and part of it had been attached to the bottom seam of the bag. Easy enough to fix: I turned the bag inside out, detached the "caught" portion of the lining, and mended the lining's seam. I also removed the beads at the bottom. They were superfluous. Now it's perfect!
The bohemian look is not only multi-cultural, but also multi-generational. Easily described as earthy, eclectic, and free-spirited, the boho style is a blend of patterns, colors, embellishments, and materials inspired by gypsies, the 1970's hippie scene, and African, Indian, and Asian prints. It's all about breaking conventional fashion norms with sexy and edgy yet organic pieces. So you might think, then, that bohemian handbags would be difficult to identify. Fortunately, there are elements bags within this trend tend to share.
By contrast, short bobbed hair was often a Bohemian trait, having originated in Paris c.1909 and been adopted by students at the Slade several years before American film actresses such as Colleen Moore and Louise Brooks ("the girl in the black helmet") became associated with it in the mid-1920s. This style was plainly discernible on a woodblock self-portrait of 1916 by Dora Carrington, who had entered the Slade in 1910, and, indeed, the journalist and historian Sir Max Hastings has referred to "poling punts occupied by reclining girls with bobbed hair" as an enduring, if misleading, popular image of the "idyll before the storm" of the First World War.

Effie Gray, whose marriage to John Ruskin was annulled in 1854 prior to her marrying the pre-Raphaelite painter John Millais, is known to have used flowers as an adornment and probably also as an assertive "statement". While in Scotland with Ruskin (still her husband) and Millais, she gathered foxgloves to place in her hair. She wore them at breakfast despite being asked by her husband not to do so, a gesture of defiance, at a time of growing crisis in their relationship, that came to the critical notice of Florence Nightingale (who tended to regard others of her sex with "scarcely concealed scorn" and was generally unsympathetic to "women's rights"). A few weeks earlier, on Midsummer Day, Effie (possibly inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream) was said by her hostess, Pauline Trevelyan, to have "looked lovely" with stephanotis in her hair at an evening party in Northumberland, while, the previous year, a male friend had brought glass flowers for her hair from Venice. Ruskin's father was evidently shocked to learn that, when Effie herself was in Venice, she had removed her bonnet in public, ostensibly because of the heat.
^ Tasmanian-born Davis was in her early 40s when she played Phryne Fisher, though the heroine of the books was only as old as the century (28 in 1928). Other recent examples of the 1920s style bob have included Gemma Arterton in St. Trinian's (2007) and Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley in the 5th series of ITV's Downton Abbey (2014), the latter set in 1924.

Among female Bohemians in the early 20th century, the "gypsy look" was a recurring theme, popularised by, among others, Dorothy "Dorelia" McNeill (1881–1969), muse, lover and second wife of the painter Augustus John (1878–1961), whose full skirts and bright colours gave rise to the so-called "Dorelia look". Katherine Everett, née Olive, a former student of the Slade School of Art in London, has described McNeil's "tight fitting, hand-sewn, canary coloured bodice above a dark gathered flowing skirt, and her hair very black and gleaming, emphasiz[ing] the long silver earrings which were her only adornment".
I'm 5'4" 125 lbs and ordered the 0/2 (FYI: the dress is labeled S/Small when you receive it). These maxi style dresses usually don't look very good on me (they are too long for my height) but this one looks amazing and doesn't make me look short and stumpy. It's classy and sexy at the same time. Speaking of sexy, if you have larger boobs (I'm a 34D) be prepared to show a little side boob in this dress.
