Hello Beach Boyz & Girlz!
The Skinny: I ventured out of my normal SoCal beach zone, and checked out Ventura Beach for the first time last week. First I grabbed some chicken tacos with sriracha sauce at the Kogi Barbeque truck. Next, I saw a freak show, hippies, and medical clubs that were willing to consult with me.
Now just because I don’t look like a super model doesn’t mean that I can’t [try to] dress like one. This look first popped up on the Gucci Fall 2011 runway and then was seen on the gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at the Transformers Premier. I immediately fell in love with the look and about a week before New Years Eve 2012 decided that I wanted to try to copy the look (yup, this post is long overdue).
So with the one week till the New Years Eve 2012 party, I had to find a sheer maxi skirt, a one shoulder body suit and legs that go up to my neck. Sadly for me, I only was able to find a sheer maxi skirt. So I improvised and found a leopard bodysuit and some high heels to pretend that I had super model legs. Continue reading
I’m a girl. I
like am obsessed with fashion. When people dress nice, I don’t just give them a double take. I mentally drink in the image of their clothing, accessories, shoes .. I eye <beep> them from across the room. I also have this issue where I like to dress people. In college, if I saw a girlfriend wear a fashion no-no (i.e. the wrong top with a skirt, or terrible shoes with a dress) I’d be the first to try to fix the fashion boo boo.
Friends don’t let friends, faux pas. #fashiontruth
With all this said, I STILL have moments where I cry “What am I going to wear?!?!” and I know you do too. In order to get your mind racing in the right fashionable direction, I went a little cray on Polyvore, an uber fun fashion site where you can create outfits that reflect your own style! Here are some creations I came up with that j-adore!
(Throughout my post, you’ll see RST aka “Raji Style Tips”. Take note & enjoy!)

Hello again boys,
Did you know that men’s accessories sales are on the rise? Men are buying so many accessories that some forecasters predict sales growth for men’s clothing and accessories during the first three months of this year will set a 20-year high. This brings us to our point, the tie bar, the first men’s accessory we shall discuss. Tie bars have gained popularity recently and if you haven’t gotten one yet, you must! It’s a hot accessory for men and you better jump on the tie bar train before it leaves without you. I personally prefer the more simple, plain look such as the Tiffany’s Tie Bar below but there’s definitely some fancy ones out there.
LBD. Little Black Dress. Everyone has one, and if you don’t .. then you should. But enough of all that.. we want to introduce you to another staple you

“The woman is the most perfect doll that I have dressed with delight and admiration.”
— Karl Lagerfeld

Oh heyyyy boys! This one is for you.
Layering isn’t just for women, men can also spruce up an outfit with the right layers. Layering always seems like a daunting task. At first, mixing tailored clothing with knits, stripes with more prints, leather with wool all makes you scratch your head and say WTF? Worry not, dear reader, we’re here to help. Get ready for some layerinspiration. It’s going to be all about layering cardigans with more cardigans, wool with suede, sweaters with blazers, denim jackets with coats, Henleys with sweaters, blazers with coats, etc, etc.
So get off your bum and step up your layering game. It’s not hard. Just requires some effort to look well put together. Check out these well layered gentlemen and take a page (or two) from their book.
Grey & Brown
The 2 cardigan pileup
With all things “Valentine” looming around and about, it’s no surprise that many a single guy or gal is going to wonder .. “Why don’t I have someone?” or “Man .. it’s time for me to get laid/hitched/texted back”. Maybe you’re right .. but maybe not! See I’m of a different school of thought. I don’t believe that “single” is synonymous with “miserable”, or “single” means “lonely”. There is beauty in single-dom, so long as you’re confident enough to see it.
Here are my top reasons it’s damn good to be single: Continue reading
