style study: gypset

from Julia Chaplin's website, gypset:

gypset (gypsy + jet set) -

  • n , an unconventional, bohemian approach to life.
  • adj , characterized by a fashionable exoticism and down-to-earth ease.

gypsetter (gypsy + jet setter) -  

  • n , one who is gypset (a portmanteau word: the wiles of a gypsy mixed with the sophistication of the jet set).

Julia Chaplin also authored two stunning books on the subject filled with beautiful imagery and personal stories. Aside from bohemian style inspiration aplenty in these books, the wanderlust stimulation is pretty serious.
