    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?

    Drake released his latest album VIEWS last Friday April 29th and social media went wild. The album recieved mixed reviews from many, and I was one of them. First listen, I said ummmm we waited this long for regular Drake? However I will say the project is very very good. It diverse and he always does what he is known for, rapping and singing. I am now totally hooked.
    With being said I can respect and agree with his projected salls.
    Drake’s new Views album is set for a spectacular debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters suggest the hip-hop star’s latest effort could sell more than 800,000 copies in the U.S. in the week ending May 5. The set was released exclusively for sale through the iTunes Store and to stream via Apple Music on April 29 by Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records.
    Further, the album’s overall equivalent album unit sum for the week could surpass 900,000. Sources at Republic Records say that Views earned over 630,000 equivalent units in its first day at Apple Music and iTunes combined. via
    That's major!!! Congrats Drizzy!

    It's official!!
    With no mass marketing Mrs.Carter dropped another banging album that has earned her, her sixth Number 1 album. I loved the visual album. The imagery and symbolism was everything. The message was clear but at the same time it made the world think my boy Jay Z cheated on her wife. Sigh... I call them marketing genius. They love to get the people going. *sips Lemonade* The album also touched on many topics such as Daddy issues, Black Pride and more.
