Question by That one: Do you think granny boots would look good with a gypsy costume?
I’m going to be a gypsy for Halloween but all I have that looks like it might go is a pair of black granny boots with a rose embroidered on the sides. The rest of the costume is a white gauzy corset top with a peasant skirt, and a blue velvet sequence shawl. I’m going to wear a scarf as a headband and a lot of bangle bracelets. What do you think?

Historically speaking, most gypsy women (of the classically defined period in literature) went about their business barefoot. As far as boots are concerned, that is a corruption of facts brought about by Hollywood’s need to comply with the draconian censorship laws of the time.
So, tell me: can you dance (barefoot) whilst playing the tambourine?
