Don't get me wrong though, there is nothing wrong with dressing just like one of these people- I- as a matter of a fact- own a pair of TOMS, Converse, and even "nerd glasses". I love the bohemian styles and embrace whole-heartedly being unique and looking more "natural" (is that the right word I'm looking for?) I have
even been described as hipster. It's actually pretty neat and rather flattering, I just don't think that the term "hipster" is appropriate for this case scenario, seeing as how I bought my Converse in Payless, my over-sized sweater in Pac-Sun, my glasses at my eye doctor, and my skinny jeans at Aeropostale.
But, to answer my original question "Do hipsters even exist?" I believe the answer is indeed, yes, but it's not what we think it is. No longer is it the tea drinking, bohemian dressing, nerd glasses wearing, Apple freak that we all associate with the word hipster, but something entirely different that none of us see, because they are not actually mainstream. Someone who's outfit we couldn't find all hanging together in one piece at Walmart, but someone who has enough amazingness to actually be themselves.
