If you haven't already heard Gogol Bordello, now is the time. They are an amazing Gypsy punk band (and lead singer Eugene Hutz was impressive in Everything is Illuminated).
I love the fashion, the lifestyle and the complete and utter madness. Feeling it too? Here are some Gogol Bordello / Gypsy Punk inspired pieces to get you started:
These are insanely gorgeous. Dark Mystic Earrings by PixiE GlamouR.
Gold Hammer & Sickle Necklace seen on SupermarketHQ
"Start Wearing Purple, Wearing Purple...." (Fave GB song)
Such a pretty and comfortable dress by Gypsy05
Ridiculously more comfortable than heels - I adore these handwoven strap hippie shoes from Jildor Shoes.
The Gypsy Kiss offers How-Tos and Links for amazing Gypsy fashion including this SteamPunk Hat above.
Since you know I can't resist anything Hello Kitty - how much does this shirt rock? Sadly it is sold out but Jester Funny Books has many other great products as well.
