I'll tell you everything about being free

Ever since Disney gave us Esmeralda I have been in love with gypsy culture. This outfit was inspired by the carefree and unconventional lives of the traveling people. I can't get enough of the bold colors and prints, usually found in their lush scarves and long full skirts. I am looking forward to more gypsy inspiration for this coming fall...

This outfit called for a pile of jewelry - several necklaces, an armful of bracelets, rings, earrings, and even an elephant belt (and for when the day is done, a calico cat tin to keep everything in).

You can catch a glimpse of my trusty photographer in the marching elephants below.

I'm looking forward to exhausting this color palate come fall when the same colors will be reflected in the leaves. It is nice to see how well the rust and ochre look against the pretty green grass, though.
