    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?

LISTEN: J.Cole’s New Album “4 Your Eyez Only” Is Finally Here

12/09/2016  |  No Comments


    J.Cole's follow-up to 2014 Forest Hills Drive has arrived.
    The new album album 4 Your Eyez Only includes 10 tracks with zero features. I listened to the album on my way to work. So far tracks 3) Deja Vu, 4) Ville Mentality and 5) She's Mine Pt.1 were my faves after a first listen.
    The album give off a very chill vibe. No mumble rap here and the lyrics are hitting. Definitely real hip-hop. One thing we can all agree about Cole is that he stays true to himself and his sound. Listen to the highly anticipated album below via Apple Music or Spotify.

    Today Onika Tanya Maraj aka Nicki Minaj turned 34 years old.
    Her and the bae Meek Mill hit up the island of Turks & Caicos to celebrate her special day. Nicki posed for the gram in a sexy bathing suit, a sicking shoe, and sporting a new braided up hair style. I've never seen Nicki with braids but I like the look. Oh yeah the CAKE was definitely on display.
    Happy born day HB!
