Gypsy Rose Lee thrived in Minsky shows during this era and set the tone for high-style striptease as an extremely beautiful woman who was also an engaging comedienne and natural-born celebrity.
Women wear a lot of jewelry not so much because it is attractive as because the nomadic nature of gypsy life means that wealth must be portable, so anything acquired has to travel on a person.
Colored silks or fabrics: Whether you're putting together a gypsy, ghost or shepherd boy costume, colored silk scarves or panels help to create a variety of floaty costumes in a jiffy.
For those who prefer to cover up completely, the current collection also includes this season's summer essential, a gauzy Gypsy tunic, to wear over your bikini, teamed with big sunglasses and a floppy sun hat, Nicole Ritchie style.
Why carry you off as if you were some gypsy singing girl?...
