    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?

    The Carter's had the summer on LOCK!! With media outlets reporting divorce in the works, the power couple put all the rumors to rest, at the close out of the On The Run tour in Paris.
    Paris the city of LOVE holds a special spot in Beyonce' and Jay-Z's heart.
    Hova told the audience at Stade de France that Paris was also where Blue Ivy, was conceived.
    "We love Paris. It's special to us because we got engaged here and this is where baby Blue was conceived,"
    Beyonce' ended her "run" with a surprise appearance from Nicki Minaj to perform their CRAZY, remix to FLAWLESS. Social media went WILD as images and 15 sec videos started to hit Instagram and Twitter.
    But wait it get's even BETTER!! It's being reported that Jay-z changed the lyrics to his song "Beach Is Better" during the show. In an Instagram video (which first appeared on Vibe.com), Jay Z can be heard changing the line
    "I replace it with another one" to "pregnant with another one".
    The snippet immediately caused speculation that he had announced they are preparing for another baby.
    The OTR Paris show will air live on HBO September 20th. I'm sure the whole world will be tuned in, to see the full FLAWLESS performance and hear the pregnancy announcement.
