Stay in Your Place Movie Premiere



Saturday, November 5, 2016, at the Bel Air Luxury Cinema at 6 p.m. in Detroit, Michigan, an innovative, independent romantic comedy, titled Stay in Your Place, is making its red carpet debut. This romantic comedy was produced in Detroit by The Shoe Lady Productions and So Real Entertainment. It is based on the bestselling book titled A Ho Needs to Stay in a Ho's Place, written by Tonja Ayers. The book was initially adapted into a groundbreaking stage play, Stay in Your Place, co-written by DuJuan Johnson. After two sold-out shows, the stage play received blazing reviews and accolades. There was a huge thrust of energy to take Stay in Your Place to the next level.

Fast forward three months later. Tonja Ayers and Mi'kiel Los decided to join forces and bring Stay in Your Place to the big screen as an independent film. The book set the pace and the response from the stage play had audiences loving the storyline of the married, ‘wannabe player’ Deshawn and his awkward attempts at juggling his wife and ‘side pieces’, aka women on the side. Now, with the recent revitalization in Detroit’s entertainment industry, it is the perfect time and location for such an edgy-yet-comical urban production. The independent film showcases Detroit’s best theatrical and production talent.

Stay in Your Place was directed by Melissa Talbot and co-directed by Don Snipes. For more information, please contact Shelly Harris at (313) 449-8543 or email info@stayinyourplace.com. Tickets and the movie trailer are both available on www.StayInYourPlace.com

WINE & SIGN

I released my latest book titled Sorry this past weekend and I decided to do something different by launching the book in my store setting. I had already planned on hosting my annual Sip & Shop so instead of creating two events, I combined The Wine & Sign with my Sip & Shop and boy did we have a blast! Over 150 people came to support my shoes and/or book. Thanks to everyone who attended. I APPRECIATE YOU!

AMINAH ABDUL-JILLIL - SHOE DESIGNER #BlackGirlsRock

Aminah Abdul-Jillil was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Aminah began as a professional dancer in Los Angeles, California performing with some of the biggest names in music including Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. She's appeared in commercials for Pepsi, Mazda and New Balance and recently performed as lead character "Crimson" in Cirque du Soleil's BELIEVE.



In 2012, after completing her third world tour with Britney Spears, Aminah launched her first collection of women's shoes selling mostly online and a few L.A based boutiques including the iconic Fred Segal. Her first collection did quite well when Rihanna chose to wear one of her designs in the Where Have You Been music video! Aminah's career as a dancer has taken her around the world and cultivated her eye for culture, art, design and fashion. She hopes to continue with both of her passions and is excited to see where they take her next.

What makes Aminah Abdul-Jillil's designs unique is her excitement to "try something different". Here's a few pics of shoes from her collection.
