I know that my blog titles are the worst.Like seriously ” Forest Blue”? I have no imagination at all. However, I know you don’t mind because I have pretty pictures to show you. For those who like more my reviews on places or books, it is coming don’t worry. With Ramadan, I didn’t have time to read some good books, but will definitely get at it soon.
For now, I let you with those pictures :)

Hello again ! Like promised here is the second part of our crazy OOTD swap with my friend in SoHo. Can you guess which outfit was mine and hers? Hint: In general, I am not a necklace person.
Honestly, I never had fun like this; running in the middle of the street to snap pictures, switching outfits and taking street style picture. It was so much fun and even people started to stop and look at us, especially looking at my friend Neyra. I don’t know maybe they thought we were street style fashion bloggers or something.
Ok, enough talking, here are the pictures. I had so many to go through and select, so I hope you will like these ones. My turban slowly turning into a huge mess
My beautiful Neyra and her Tibetan necklace :)
Mini-story: We liked the Tibetan belt , but it was so damn expensive. We just took a picture. However, Neyra bought a beautiful necklace made in Tibet. You can see it above ( portrait picture).
I have no idea of what I am doing here.
This is it :)
For those who follow me on insta, you know that, not so long ago, I went to NYC for a weekend. Honestly, I never went to Manhattan with such adventures. We had an accident in the middle of the highway in New Jersey, we missed all the buses and ended up taking the gypsy taxis and we almost missed our trip back home. Anyway, we could make a movie literally, but instead I wrote you an article ;).
So yeah, the day we were walking in SoHo, my friend Neyra and I decided to switch OOTD, just for fun. Here’s a preview of the first OOTD. It is the famous dress that everyone is selling online. Mine is from Aliexpress , it cost like 10$ ( shipping included).
Both bags are from North Africa:
- left bag: Algeria
-right bag: Morroco
I love how my friend look in the picture as if it’s a streetstyle blog.
What do you think of the 2 in 1 ;) ?
How often do you wear pieces of clothes that define you so well that you’re very proud to wear them; or just being so happy that you got these pieces because no one has them? Even people and friends would be like ” This OOTD was made for you”.
Well well, I am so happy to show and talk to you about a new brand I discovered and it’s called Raji Collections. I never talked about specific brands you know me, but Raji Collections is just the perfect middle point between modernity and culture heritage. You’ve probably read my older post about my Algerian background and how struggling it is to balance everything for someone who lives in this era. Honestly, Raji product line is very young and would fit anyone who has an interest in hybrid creations. I find these pieces very interesting to wear and you will see that in the street style photoshoot below.
Moreover, you might notice that the embroidery is the same style as my wedding dresse because it is, indeed, an Algerian craft /embroidery.
A chwiya (little) about Raji:
- Raji is based in Algeria
- Every pieces are handmade with handcrafted embroidery
- Products can be customized and personalized
See ! It could be worn as casual and chic at the same time ! I honestly find that our generation is well-represented with this collection.

By the way, most of the items in the website are sold out. You can always contact them for more details. I find it would be awesome to get a piece for Ramadan and Eid.
Moreover, Raji had the honor to dress Amel Zen in her concert in Paris.
So proud of them!!!
Thanks to my friends who accepted to wear those collections pieces and bear with me !
It is not over, stay tuned for more info about Raji, I might come to Montreal !
