VINTAGE GYPSY FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY

vintage-gypsy-photographTHESE VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHS SHOW STEREOTYPED IMAGES OF GYPSYS, YET THEY ARE VERY EFFECTIVE IN EVOKING A MYSTERIOUS FEEL OF GYPSY WOMANHOOD. THE FASHION IS LUXURIOUS AND FLOWING. IT SEEMS THAT ALL GYPSYS IN FAIRY TALES MUST WEAR HEADSCARVES JUST LIKE THE WOMEN IN THESE PHOTOGRAPHS. THE GYPSY IN THE TOP PHOTOGRAPH SEEMS TO BE CARRYING A HANDBAG FASHIONED FROM AN ORNATE SCARF. THE WICKER BASKET IS ANOTHER TYPICAL GYPSY STYLE PROP.

Snap shots from the fashionable 1930s

1930s-g-dress-snapshot006THESE BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE HOME SNAP SHOTS TAKEN OF AN ANONYMOUS GIRL DURING THE 1930S

1930s-g-dress-snapshot007IT LOOKS LIKE THIS YOUNG WOMAN IS DRESSED FOR A LOCAL DANCE. THE OLD HOUSE IN THE PHOTO APPEARS TO BE A FARM HOUSE AS IT LOOKS TO BE IN A DUSTY COUNTRYSIDE.

1930s-g-dress-snapshot005THE MATCHING CAPE AND HANBAG WITH THE DRESS IS TYPICAL OF THE FASHION OF THE 30S. I WONDER IF THIS GIRL SEWED HER OWN DRESS AND DID HER OWN HER FOR THE DANCE. IF ONLY THIS PICTURE COULD TALK.
