    Has anyone mastered the mixed prints trend this season? Whether you have or not, love it or hate…its an extremely hard trend to get right. If you need help definitely check out my article THE ART OF MIXING PRINTS on www.etcblogmag.com! But for a mini lesson let’s check out Solange who is the Queen of Mixing Prints! She recently was spotted in NYC at the Alexander Wang after party rocking this look- embellished palazzo pants, a printed top, denim jacket, a bright messenger bag, and a Babatunde hat. The hat is from an African designer…Solange recently shot a video there and must have come across the designer.

    I haven’t found their official website but here’s their facebook in case you’re interested in their hats. When looking at Solange’s outfit there is really no method to her madness…and that’s what I love about her. But to master this trend keep this in mind…for the look for less I first started with this navy printed palazzo pants, added a stripped shirt that has both navy and white which I pulled from the pants. That is the key to mixing prints…you can mix any print you want but make sure the colors are similar. I then pulled the pink print from the pants to find this amazing bright messenger bag. Finally, I added a brown hat, brown & navy wedges, and simple jewelry. So we are definitely mixing prints but for some reason it just flows. What do you think of mixing prints? Did we nail it?

Ray Rice Wins Appeal: Eligible To Sign With Any NFL Team

    Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has won his appeal of an indefinite suspension and has been reinstated to the NFL.
    Rice is now eligible to sign with any NFL team.
    An NFL spokesman, when asked by ESPN's Andrew Brandt if the league would pursue any further action against Rice, said: "We, of course, accept the ruling as binding."
    Rice was suspended indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after a video of him hitting his then-fiancée was released publicly. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell originally had suspended the running back for two games. READ MORE HERE.
    I personally believe everyone deserves a second chance. It's up to him to prove that he's learned his lesson and will never put his hands on a woman again. We as humans aren't perfect. God bless them.

Guess Who’s Bizzack? : Frank Ocean Shares A Snippet of New Music “Memrise”

    Frank Ocean has been extremely low these days. However today the singer/songwriter released a two minute track via his Tumblr page. Its been over 2 years (2012) since the release of Frank Ocean's debut album: Channel Orange, so hopefully this new track is an indication that a new album is on the way.
    Lyrics:
    "I memorized the wayward expressions
 / Never look down / Never let you see me down / 
I memorized the way no directions / 
Can I come over now? / 
I’d like to stay a little while / 
I memorized your body exposed 
/ I could f--- you all night long 
/ From a memory alone / I never forget a face / 
Don’t go plastic on me 
/ Nothing’s set in stone 
/ You’re not dipped in gold / 
Dipped in gold 
/ You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold/ 
You are not on paper / You are not a copy / You’re so, you’re so...so thick, so thick"
    Thoughts?
