Mini Muse Spring Trends 2015


February is not only my birth month, however, it seems to be the time period where most of my creative inhibitions explode! My team and I were asked to contribute a spring editorial that would captivate a mini fashionable audience. First came the place! When photographer, Nicole Mitchem, sent me images of our venue, I was floored! Yes, that is myself in the middle. 


Villa Vizcaya, now named the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, is the former villa and estate of businessman James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune, on Biscayne Bay in the present day Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida. The early 20th century Vizcaya estate also includes: extensive Italian Renaissance gardens; native woodland landscape; and a historic village outbuildings compound (Wikepedia).


Next, I spent days and nights pondering my thoughts filled with images and trends from fashion shows I had attended, other magazines I'd read through, etc. I remember waking up in the middle of the night. I could not fall back asleep for anything! So I grabbed my I-Pad and started reviewing images from Paris Fashion Week. With thoughts of some of my favorite trends, these are some of the images that came to mind:


Yes! Lace, Tulle, Gingham, Bold Prints, Crop Tops, Head Accessories, Pastels, and more..... I started downloading and creating my mood board at 2am in the morning (as noted in my journal)! I was too excited to translate these adult images into a pint size mini muse edition!

On Friday, May 16th, 2014, after receiving notice that a fellow Florida State Seminole Alumni would be showcasing her designs at this year's Miami Fashion Week, Jones Magazine African American Showcase runway show, I jumped in my car to head down south to support! The atmosphere was amazing! Not only did I receive an opportunity to see A. Lekay rock the runway with her swimwear, I was also able to delight in other ethnic fashions and network.

We all patiently awaited for the show to start. Fellow bloggers and fashion stylists took the opportunity to chat with other fashionistas and network with press officials. It was inspirational and exciting to be amongst so much support!

Here I am sporting my official press pass! Can you tell that I finished my look in the car on my way from Tampa? Behind The Scenes with Tina J. can be quite exciting! An adventure for sure! It's not how you get there, It's how you show up! 


It was exciting and such a surprise to see Host, Cynthia Bailey from Atlanta Housewives reality show there. She did such an amazing job! Ran into her back stage and chatted a bit about models, entertainment, and of course, FASHION. She loved my jumper as I did hers.....

Allusions By A. Lekay

The idea of Allusions by A. Lekay Highwaist Swimwear was born when A. Lekay herself wanted to feel both sexy and beach appropriate, while synonymously and discretely covering the abdominal imperfections of bearing her first born. Instead of sporting a one piece, monokini, the designer purchased fabric and illustrated it to her tailer the look that would bring her highwaist swimsuit to life while vacationing in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Allusions is an exclusive line that blends high end patterns and styles with high waist swimsuit designs. Its bold look will always make a statement!


Check Out the images from Allusions By A. Lekay's Runway Show Below: 


The Woman Of The Hour, A. Lekay, and I backstage after all of the madness! So happy that I have connected with a fellow creative soul and lover of fashion. It is always great to be in company with those that are going in the direction of their dreams. Inspiration starts with your circle!  Can't wait to rock my Allusions by A. Lekay bathing suit this summer. You know Tina J. will be posted up on an island far far away! Florida State! Florida State! Florida State! Whooooo....!!!!! 


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others around you won't feel insecure. We were all meant to shine as children do, It's not in some of us, It's in everyone! And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others!

2014 Spring Trends!

Trend #1: Pretty Pastels and Fringe Jewels

A rainbow of soft springtime shades reigned throughout the collections. The best thing about the pastel trend? You can pick your most-flattering color and wear it with whatever silhouette flatters (and excites) you. From a minty-green board-shorts suit to a sexy-CEO lilac dress to sporty baby blue bombers, the sky's the limit on how pastel-happy you want to get. 

The Red Lip!
"In China, red symbolizes health, wealth, and good fortune." Liu Wen, model
 Here are a few of my favorite red lipsticks; Chanel Pirate, NARS Joyous Red, and MAC Ruby Woo. You want it? Just click on the lipstick of your choice!


Find out where you can snag Lupita's Style!

Here Lupita is wearing a dress from Elie Saab's Resort 2014 Collection.



While promoting her new flick the red carpet newbie has been killing it on the red carpet. To give credit where credit is due, kudos must go to the actress' stylist Micaela Erlanger.




Lupita was born in Mexico but raised in Kenya; her father is Peter Anyang' Nyong'o, a politician serving in the Kenyan Senate. Her cousin Isis was named one of Africa's most powerful women in Forbes in 2012 for being the vice president and managing director of African operations of InMobi, the world's largest independent mobile advertising network. Her other cousin Tavia Nyong'o is an associate professor at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Hopefully you have seen this beauty delivery nothing short of an amazing performance in the movie, "12 Years A Slave."
