|Thrifted and Wabi-Sabi-ly beautiful(?)|
Half-way to deciding "Bohemian" might describe my style of choice, I remembered Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese world view or aesthetic. Beauty in Wabi-Sabi has been described as that which is "imperfect, impermanent and incomplete". Wabi-Sabi's characteristics include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.

Is there such a thing as waBO-sabi?
I really identify with the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete thing!
