I have always had romantic (and somewhat delusional) notions of Gypsies, I imagined the life of a Gypsy to be glamorous and adventurous and the idea of waking up in a new city each week especially appealed to me (which I practiced throughout my 20’s) until I had a child. Though I no longer crave the roaming lifestyle of a Gypsy, I still love what I consider “Gypsy” style accessories; a big stack of clanging gold bangles, long flowing skirts with layers of delicate chains around the waist, ruffled tops tipped just so on the shoulders to show a bit of glowing skin, and of course big gold hoop earrings. However, I have never, in all the years of being fascinated with Gypsies, imagined a Gypsy bag to look like this. Hoochie… yes, but Gypsy… no. Tacky ’80s… yes, but Gypsy… no. I think you are getting my point. Some of you will balk at me and say it is creative, as in take Britney Spears’ red lace tap pants and turn it in to a bag? Uh… No thanks. 13″ x 8.5″, $1950 – Dior Handbags at eLuxury.
