    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?

    This would be EPIC!!
    Word On The Net:via
    Nicki Minaj set the Internets on fire with her cheeky announcement of a new single, “Anaconda,” which ended up being delayed. But word is the new song was put on hold (until August 4th ) because Beyonce is dropping a new single that features the YMCMB rapper.
    Minjaj was cryptic with her original delay message, saying,
    “My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu.”
    Now a music industry source tells Hip-Hop Wired that Minaj pushed her single back in order to avoid it getting lost in the sure to be excitement of a new track from Jay Z’s wife.
    Guess we'll just have to wait and see!!

    This is my new get hype track!! I kept hearing it on the radio here in ATL. The chick was spitting, so I'm like who's the chick talking about "get use to me" before she went in. I needed to see who she was, and I learned her name is Wankaego aka The Queen Of Trill.She's down with Lil Boosie's set and at first glance you wouldn't expect a flow like that to come from her. New Femcee alert!! I love the track ft Kcamp, Lil Boosie and Webbie. Check it out.
