    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?

CHRISTINA MILIAN SPEAKS ON RELATIONSHIP WITH LIL WAYNE: PLANS TO PROTECT IT FROM PUBLIC

01/15/2015 In my eyes and EVERYONE else eyes Christina Milian and Weezy are dating. We've seen pictures of Lil Wayne and Christina Milian all over the net. The romance and affection is definitely displayed. However in a recent interview Christina Milain tells singeroom.com she wants to protect what they have. Although slighlty tight-lipped about their "Relationship" she had this to say about bae:

"I really respect him and enjoy working with him. We’ve definitely grown closer in the last few months. I feel very fortunate to be working with him, and I admire him as a musician and what he’s done with his business. Being his artist, I feel fortunate that he believes in me. People definitely see us around a lot together (laughs), but we have a very cool relationship. I think it’s a relationship to be protected because the world has something to say about everything. If it’s something worth anything, I think it’s best to enjoy and live for yourself. So yeah, that’s probably the best answer I can give you (laughs) "
    Girl I don't blame you. Like they say a PRIVATE LIFE IS A HAPPY LIFE.
