rainbow hairIt has been statistically proven that people are drawn to brighter colors when they are feeling loving and hopeful. This is especially true in fashion! That’s not to say you can’t be totally happy whilst rockin’ your little black dress, but overall, adding a little color to your wardrobe or even hair can totally brighten your mood.

Speaking of that, what do you guys think of the multi color hair trend?

A. Love it! I’m going to streak it 8 different colors this weekend!

B. Eh, it’s cool but my parents or boss might go into a meltdown.

C. Uh, save it for like Halloween or something!

Love All Around,

The Future of Makeup

futuristic makeupOne of the greatest ways to express yourself is through makeup! There’s nothing like a fierce smokey eye or dramatic lime green eyeshadow to get heads to turn. Just ask any M.A.C. artist, drag queen or diva and they will tell you it’s all about being BOLD!

Valentino seems to think the future is bright, as you can see in the next pic of his haute couture spring 2010 runway show. So what do you think? Do you think the future of makeup is show stopping neon colors? Or do you think it’s all going minimal?

Love All around,

Go Tribal!

Karmen Pedaru tribal photo shootWhat’s shakin’ sexy people?

I’m kind of loving this whole tribal trend that’s happening right now…..the chunky jewelry…the wild prints…..fabulous! Especially if it’s done right. Here’s a shoot from a London Sunday Telegraph featuring Karmen Pedaru who is just absolutely fierce! What? I told you I say fierce a lot, it’s in my sidebar! πŸ™‚

So, have any plans for the holiday weekend?

Love All Around,

Maryna Linchuk NEON GLAMOUR

Maryna Linchuk in Russian Vogue June 2008O.K, so you’ve probably guessed I’m slightly obsessed with Neon. πŸ™‚ Here’s a shoot with Maryna Linchuk looking fierce in Russian Vogue from June 2008. I know it’s last year but I just had to post it! I love the blue lipstick although I don’t think I could pull it off without looking like an alien.

This may sound weird but I can’t wait for it to get cold, I’m so over this hot weather! Anyway have a great week everybody…more posts to come.

Love All Around,
Cara Mia β™₯

Basso & Brooke Resort 2010 Color Splash

Basso & Brooke Resort 2010When I first saw pieces from the Basso & Brooke Resort 2010 collection, I though to myself, “Yes! This is exactly the wave of the future! Clothing that’s bursting with color yet totally sophisticated and wearable at the same time.” Now I have to give credit where credit is due, I was first mesmerized by Basso & Brooke while reading Couture Carrie, one of my all time favorite fashion blogs! I gravitated to this collection and had to investigate! πŸ™‚

Here are some of my favorite pics from the collection.

Welcome To Future Hippie!

future hippieSince this is my first post on Future Hippie, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pics from my inspiration folder and give you a quick idea of what’s in store.

My name is Cara Mia. Some of you may know me from my blog Hippie Couture which focuses on fashion, art, music and culture from the 1960’s and 70’s, and how it relates to today’s trends. While still giving a nod to the past, Future Hippie is more about the “nouveau hippies” and the trendsetters of the future.

The next generation is bright and all about color and individuality! It’s about self acceptance, expressing yourself through your creative endeavors and being kind to others. The future is fun! And this is what I hope to share with you though this blog. πŸ™‚

Thanks for droppin’ by! Leave a comment and share your ideas and blogs with me. Who are some of your favorite “future hippies”?
