We are pleased to introduce Stylelist Blogger Network member and one half of The Ray & The Ro, Roberta Oglakhchyan. When this turban-loving, Los Angeles-native isn't running The Ro PR, she's creating mood boards for her blog and dining out at new restaurants. Get to know this girl-about-town:
What’s your one fashion regret?
In high school, I lived in Juicy Couture tracksuits. Yes, I was one of those girls.
Who influences your style?
I'm influenced by '60s fashion icons. I've always idolized Jane Birkin, Anna Karina, Michelle Phillips and always try to take a bit of their style and incorporate it to mine.
If you could shop at one store for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Opening Ceremony, they always have the best designers and shoes.
Who are your favorite designers?
My all-time favorite designer is Karl Lagerfeld. Additionally, I am completely infatuated with Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte and Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler.
What are the five essentials in your closet?
Good platforms, Chanel 2.55 bag, a knit pullover for those lazy days, a soft leather jacket and cat-eye sunglasses.
What do you love most about blogging with your best friend?
My best friend Rachel moved from Los Angeles to San Francisco, so now we are in a long distance relationship. Our blog keeps us connected and always will.
Why did you start your blog?
Rachel and I needed to express to everyone how much we loved shoes.
Do you read any other blogs?
I am addicted to Jak and Jil. I hope to be that chic one day.
What are your interests aside from blogging?
That's an easy question. Food.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I don't know why I'm admitting this, but I can flawlessly sound like a chicken.

What are your tips for aspiring bloggers?
Never ignore your blog, even if you think no one is paying attention to it. Because one day you may get an email from Stylelist asking you to be a part of their network.
Can you explain the title of your blog?
It's our nicknames -- The Ray is Rachel and The Ro is me.
Describe your perfect outfit.
White sleeveless collar top with fitted colored trousers, a bowler hat, platform booties (ideally Balenciaga or YSL) with a Celine luggage tote bag and red lips.
