Introduce yourself!
R:
I’m Raven Roberts from Los Angeles, CA and I’m a Wardrobe Stylist and Fashion Blogger.

What is your style philosophy?
R:
Wear what you like and own it.

How would you describe your sense of style?
R:
I enjoy combining vintage pieces with high end pieces. I love thrift and vintage shopping.

What is the process of deciding what to wear in the morning?
R:
I usually check the weather and go from there. Sometimes I have a piece that I will work the rest of my outfit around.

007 DIY Crop Top

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
R:
My Emporio Armani Silk Red Coat from Council of Jewish Women Thrift, a Vintage Orange Red Coat also from Council of Jewish Women Thrift, and my Black and Silver Gladiator Sandals purchased from Ross or Marshall’s years ago.

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
R:
Council of Jewish Women Thrift, It’s a Wrap, H&M, Forever 21 and ASOS.

How long have you been natural?
R:
Almost 4 years.

How and why did you transition into natural hair?
R:
I started perming my hair again when I moved to the humid climate of Florida, and I always knew I’d return to natural hair once I moved from Tallahassee. So after my 25th birthday I decided I had had my last perm. I “transitioned” for about 2 months, then big chopped on Aug 10, 2010.

What is your signature hairstyle?
R:
My Wash and Go Afro.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
R:
I’m trying a new regimen of washing my hair once a week, which includes a deep condition. The products I use are as follows:

Co-Wash:
Giovanni Smooth as Silk Conditioner
Deep Conditioner:
Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque
Leave-In:
Giovanni Direct Leave-In Weightless Moisture Conditioner
Styler:
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
Deva Curl Set it Free
Oils:
Coconut Oil
Almond Oil

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?

Oh, I like but that skirt in the 16th photo though or whatever number where she wears the floral skirt. It’s in her featured photo and that head wrap is to stare at!
