Now that I've got this fashion blog thing happening, I've noticed I can be quick to assume anyone with a quirky style is a hipster. Shame on me for my judgements! I started to think about this incredibly overused word and wondered where the heck it came from. Upon further investigation (thanks Wikipedia) I discovered that it actually derives from the jazz age. The first known usage of the word is from a glossary of jive music and describes a hipster as "characters who like hot jazz." In that case, I suppose I am a hipster. Gotta love me some Nina Simone. Based on this definition, are you a hipster?
