• When Did She Wear it Better? Solange Knowles in Miu Miu’s Resort 2012 Gingham Taffeta Slingbacks

    Prints mix master Solange Knowles continued her fashionable twirls the other day at the Brooklyn Bowl, pairing a periwinkle and gray Thread Social dress with the same $595 Miu Miu Resort 2012 Gingham Taffeta Slingbacks she wore to DJ a Miu Miu store opening in Houston:

    While she stuck to her signature Afro and blue tones while kicking it in Williamsburg, she truly mixed it up in Houston, pulling long braids into a top bun, and setting it all off with a green and black lightning bolt print $2,350 Miu Miu Printed Silk Faille Mini Dress.
    The blue taffeta gingham print pumps boast a point toe silhouette, 4″ skinny heels, and bow detailing.

    I’m a sucker for blue tones, but for some reason am now wowed by the Brooklyn blue on blue combo (Update: her dress is by Thread Social). Her all Miu Miu outfit was super quirky, but somehow it worked! And I think I love the top bun braided style–and her sun kissed skin was just glowing! I think she rocked it in Houston. What do you say?

    *We’re still on the hunt for her blue dress! We’ll update the post when we find it.
    *I actually just snagged the shoes on super sale while in Atlanta!!

    I’m getting ideas on how I’ll wear ’em. You’ll be the first to see:)
