Welcome to The Style Chimera!

In the ancient world, Greece to be specific, a chimera was a lion with the head of a goat coming out of its back and a snake for a tail.  In other words, it was a hybrid and a fearsome one at that.  It was also a really cool concept and it should come as no surprise that when the scientific community started exploring genetics, they adopted the term “chimera”.

In the scientific world, a chimera is a single organism composed of cells from different zygotes (fertilized egg), essentially having multiple sets of DNA.  In other words, a hybrid.  See what those scientists did there? Not only does the ancient term fit its modern-day equivalent, it sounds super cool too.  🙂

You could say that Marta and I are, in a way, a chimera.  Two separate people that have a freakishly lot in common (a love of fashion, science, deals…), but have lived very different lives.  Thus the name, The Style Chimera.
