GATSBY. The search for a Gatsby themed outfit and the final decision to settle on this sequin top and skirt combination; which is not very 1920's but more a modern take on the theme, got me thinking about the woman who could possibly have worn this in the 1920's.

A bit of a devation from the status quo; complete with an element of colour-blocking or in this case colour-complementing (I didn't know green and blue worked so well together) , she wore what she wanted, when she wanted, how she wanted.

I get a lot of questions about my hair- this is my natural hair (no weave but it is relaxed). I'm just letting it breathe for a week before I return to what has now become my signature bob.

Have a great week my loves and if you haven't yet, you can enter my Ray-Ban aviators giveaway which ends today.

    Fis, how do you find trustworthy sellers on ebay?

    1. Fisayo Longe says:

      I judge by their feedback and how they reply to my messages! Also, how long they’ve been on eBay. Someone who’s been on eBay for 5 years and sold loads won’t want to ruin their reputation but someone who’s been on for a month doesn’t have much to lose and I’m unlikely to buy and expensive item from them. x

  6. lol i was going to comment on the hair change. Seems you don’t like stressing yourself with hair do’s. Its always something simple. Maybe one day you’d try something like bohemian…or fringe.

    Btw, i like the blog’s new look. The slider especially. Your outfit is pretty and i really think you should be driving off in that car, for a complete effect. Its only right…

      In the past 5 years- I’ve cut my hair short, had red hair, shaved the side of my hair, had a full fringe, had braids. I’ve experimented so much that now I’ve finally found my hair style, I’m ready to commit!

      Thank you! I know right? Would suit the mood perfectly. If only…

    Can you recommend some trustworthy sellers on eBay for loubs?


    1. Fisayo Longe says:


      I don’t know any eBay sellers that specialise in Loubs. I just bought mine from a seller who sells all sorts that sold a pair. Sorry that isn’t helpful.

  8. Hey hey lucky you! Still trying to find mine.

    Oh btw would you mind if i used a photo from this post? I’ll definitely link back 😀
