Hi! I'm Evelyn Messari from Greece.

Apart from that i have attend some summer courses for fashion design at saint martins (university of art and design) in London!

2) Describe your personal style and its influences / inspiration.
First of all, I believe that Fashion is not just in the catwalks for fashion weeks around the world,the streets are the big runway and the people in it are the models. So try to see what people around you are wearing,you can get a lot of inspiration from it! You can see great styles walking around!
I take inspirations from everything that surrounds me, like a song, a person,fashion show, blogs,a movie and whatever.
I don't have a unique style but if I had to describe more specifically I would say that is chic.
Everybody should dress the way that makes them feel comfortable,and that's what i do!

3)What made you start blogging?
I opened my blog one year ago, in 2010.
i always loved to read fashion blogs but the passion for my own blog started when i was in London!
First i did that to share my outfits but then I wanted to show people that having passion for fashion (as i do!) means so much more than just love shopping. Some people think that just because they love shopping,that means they love Fashion and Fashion is SO MUCH MORE!
Also i love to capture moments and share them with people,it's a great way to contact people with the same passions follow them and get inspired from them or maybe somebody get inspiration from me,that's great!
