After more than 20 years in the fashion, publishing, public relations and entertainment industries, Dominique Rose Charbit came to the conclusion that her personal look could never be contained by any existing parameters – so she created her own.
The native Parisian’s signature “gypsetter” style fuses “the sophistication of a jet-setter and the free-spirited lifestyle of a gypsy,” two identities embraced in her online magazine, World of Dominique Rose.
“I wear everything you see in my online magazine,” says Rose, who counts Zimmermann and Loup Charmant among her favorite designers. “I only curate products I would or will buy.”
The publication is many things: an outlet for her entrepreneurial spirit, a sanctuary for pleasure seekers, and perhaps most importantly, an embodiment of her bohemian flare.
Rather than recycling tired trends, the world traveler gathers inspiration from trips to the French Riviera, Italy, Spain and Mexico, building her wardrobe upon flowy pieces that punctuate her beachy vibe and proclivity for adventure.
“I get so much fulfillment discovering new places,” she says. “Arizona is where I experienced and achieved my ‘American Dream’ and I am so grateful.”
What is your most prized possession? All the letters my parents wrote to me once I moved to the U.S. These last few years, however, I’ve learned not to be attached to anything, as I have moved many times.
Where do you most enjoy traveling? Ibiza, Spain.
What style secrets have you picked up while trotting the globe? Be comfortable and always take flat shoes with you! But it depends on the city. When I’m in Paris, I wear very stylized, modern bohemian-rock outfits. When I’m in Ibiza, I wear a kaftan over a swimsuit and flat sandals.

An avid coin collector as a kid, Nick Grovich, the president of American Federal Rare Coin & Bullion in Carefree, Arizona, now boasts a new kind of menagerie: a closet full of covetable footwear.
“I love shoes,” he admits. “I really love Dr. Martens and Jared Lang, and I always get compliments on my Duckie Brown Saddle Shoes by Florsheim.”
The world-renowned coin dealer, who works with clients throughout the U.S., has a soft spot for interesting embellishments and fittingly enough, a natural penchant for lustrous materials.
“I used to dress much more conservatively,” Grovich says. “I’m more fashion-forward and casual now, as things have become more relaxed in business attire.”
Nowadays, a typical ensemble consists of BOSS trousers, French cuff shirts and cuff links, a designer tie, and the occasional pair of colorful socks or suspenders. Off the clock, he’ll reach for vintage rock T-shirts and jeans by Rogue or Cult of Individuality.
“I love things that are unique,” he says. “[Things] you don’t just see everywhere.”
From whom or what do your draw your inspiration? My wife has become my stylist, and we did a major overhaul of my wardrobe when she moved in. I’m now more conscious of getting exact fits for the best look.
Coins are often attached to a rich backstory. Does the same ring true about any particular piece in your wardrobe?
My new wife, Laura, presented me with a beautiful pair of cuff links that match our diamond and opal wedding rings with “forever” inscribed on the sides. They are really special to me, and I often take them with me when I travel.
What might we be surprised to find in your closet? Seven pairs of designer cowboy boots.
