Mixed Prints; we have heard it before but now there’s a new twist: Textures! The key to mixing prints is color theory: Blues with blues and/ or oranges, violets with yellows, reds with greens, etc. Don’t be afraid of pairing a jean blouse with a silk skirt. The contrast will create curiosity to the viewer and will stem applause for creativity for the wearer. For those who thought it was an unattractive trend, think again because print mixing has come back for yet another season (S/S 2012) just as confident as before.
What's your opinion toward Mixing Prints?

Fashion and art collide once again, with this pump from, Alejandro Ingelmo, spring 2012 collection. The “Open Toe Origami” is definitely a showstopper; this shoe is the perfect complement to any simple dress.
A “Spotlight” Transformation
Jennifer Hudson astounded us with her voice as a contest on American Idol in 2004. Then in 2006, we all cheered her on as she took home both the Oscar and Golden Globe, for her groundbreaking performance in Dream Girls. As a new Hollywood diva, Jennifer had to establish her glamorous prestige with a new, fashionable look. Jennifer traded her curly locks to straightened 16 inched- extensions. However Jennifer’s most notable change was her loss of 80lbs. Now Jennifer is slim and trim, but still has a gigantic voice.
What are your thoughts on Jennifer’s transformation? Has this affected her singing career? Is she too Skinny??? Does she need to lose more ??

Toni, Toni, Toni- Braxton that is, has become a superstar, wife, mother, and reality star all in one.

The show has become such a hit success in its first season; the producers had to bring them back for a second. Toni Braxton’s style is very sexy. Never ashamed to bear all, Toni has given us the meaning of true sex appeal over the years with plunging necklines and backless gowns. She knows what works for her and she “works it”!

One of the most graceful actors/singers/producers/rappers of her time, Queen Latifah is an inspiration to anyone who was told “You Can’t” because she has done it, over and over again. She has produced some of our favorite television shows, TV movies, and feature length films such as “Life Support”, “Single Ladies”, “Mad Money”, and “Just Wright”.
The Queen has a laid- back style that is casual yet, it always tends to work! Her evening wardrobe is so sophisticatedly sexy it’s astonishing. She works her curves very well and her golden locks are always “whipped”. Queen Latifah wants women to know that no matter how you perceive yourself, don’t ever let it hinder you from success. A quote from the Queen herself "I wish every woman would love herself and embrace what she was given naturally."
We haven’t forgotten about our men! Moccasins have been lingering from season to season, but now they are in electrified hues and textures. Men, rock them with a pair of jeans and tee for a laid back day in the breeze. Try for a blue hue as it is on trend or a more laid back color if you have a simple shoe taste.
