This is a costume that I think pretty much anyone could put together with clothes out of their wardrobe. The main ingredients are a tiered skirt, some kind of peasant top, a head scarf, a frilly/ lacy shawl to tie around your waist, and a chunky belt. I added leather shoes, but you could go barefoot or wear boots. Then I went through my jewellery stash and put on anything that looked gypsyish. Gypsies have also always been very appealing to me. I'm pretty sure in another life I was one of those travelling gypsies with the gorgeous gypsy caravans, stopping in all the towns to sell their handcrafted items. That would be pure bliss.
