Faux (fake) bohemian. A variation on yuppie, this type of person likes to act like an artsy, poor bohemian on the outskirts of society when they are in fact a middle-class ex-californian obsessed with fitting in. Seen most often in Portland, OR and other similar yuppie-ville towns.
Colin: That guy with the local coffee, expensive vintage clothing and typewriter is so popular in Hawthorne! I wonder why he never smiles?

Carolyn: Last year he was a producer in L.A. He is such a faux-hemian. If he smiled, it would blow his cover as a Stumptown coffee employee.
