Maritsa, tell us a little bit about yourself (who you are/what you do/where you’re from, etc.).

How would you define your style? How did you find your sense of style?
I cant describe my style clearly but what i can say is i choose my daily outfit according to my mood when i wake up. Mostly, i like to combine girly items with masculine touches!
What inspired you to start a style blog? What motivates you to keep blogging?
I was watching the movie Julie and Julia and realized that if you wanna do sth different than your education or CV represent, thats the only way to show your passion and power on that matter. Thanks to my blog i jumped into fashion industry as a buyer first and now im a fashion editor. It was impossible to do it with psychology degree but after my blog, people realized my taste of fashion.

Maritsa is the english version of my real name actually.
