dressed up like a lady: Gypsy or hobo?

Aug 1, 2013

Gypsy or hobo?

This question is always at the forefront of my mind when I dress like this. 

Cure t-shirt: MC's 
Maxi skirt: Gift from wonderful family friends with an Indian import shop 
Shoes: Chuck Taylor 
Earrings: Nastygal
Necklaces and bracelets: Etsy, mom, thrifted, etc.
Bag: Coach, thrifted

I think one of my favorite things about photographing Cammila for this blog is figuring out how to capture the different senses of movement, texture, color, and mood she brings to the shoot every day. You can't pin her down to one style of dress and every day is an unexpected surprise as to what she will wear. I love that. I think of this outfit as hippie-goth. Cammila calls it boho-hobo. I would have been way into a girl with this look in high school. That mix of edgy, kohl-eyed vixen meets sensuous, earthy fairy. Primarily, I just like the idea of my 16-year-old self walking around with a goofy, starry-eyed permagrin because such a hot, ridonkulously awesome chick is wearing his Cure t-shirt. -MC 


  1. Hobypsy. Gyobo. One of those.

    Wearing a Cure T-shirt instantly elevates literally anything you can wear up into the cool stratosphere. That's just a law of nature.

  2. I guess my taste is stuck in the grunge era because I still love this look on women. Hobo it up any time. I approve.

  3. As far as I remember this look is your most eclectic and cross-over looks ever. It is very different... Almost like someone did not want to wear jeans with a t-shirt and shoes coz everyone is doing that.. and hence ended up with unique look.

    I loved the note at the end. One thing I love about both of you as a couple is the depth of each of your thoughts.... It comes forward in your ideas, words, choices of poses even... there is something special there :)

  4. Far from hobo, I think this look is a fantastic mashup of boho, gypsy and femme rocker. It's so summery and free spirited - the sort of thing one would want to wear to a long weekend music festival.

  6. This skirt is so beautiful! Loving both the term Boho-Hobo & Hippie-Goth for this look. Band tees & bohemian skirts is always going to be a winning combination :)

  7. Hobo or Boho is tough... on the one hand your shoe's are untied, so that says hobo. On the other hand, you're wearing a most awesome Cure shirt, lipstick and a pretty rad skirt, plus you're adorable. Boho wins!
