I currently own this beautiful dress and just love seeing it on other beautiful women. Definitely recommended. While I was wearing it, some people I know were dumbfounded because they considered it to be upside-down (because the white is usually on top and the black on the bottom). Well - I think it is lovely. And comfortable. :)

thisisntbusiness-deactivated201 asked: that picture of you in the strapless mermaid dress is perfection and your smile is infectious and it just put a smile on my face

This made my day when I first read it, and it still does today. Thank you so much! I’m smiling with you. :)

Okay okay. We FINALLY have a picture of the ‘fro + me singing! This was taken while in Austria, engrossed in a final run-through for the first of two concerts that would conclude my German lied summer program. It took me a while to post this. It’s already hard enough singing in front of a mirror. At first I said: “OH GOD.. my double chin!! UGH! Can’t I HIDE that while singing!?” The answer is - No. If you do try hiding it, you’re probably massacring your vocal chords and setting yourself up for a rather short career. Then I thought: “Ugh, puffy cheeks,” and “Are my eyes really that small.. maybe I should just wear contacts all the time.”
I’m done saying that crap - for now at least. Singing is one of the most beautiful, human things one can do. Why crap it up with self criticism? I hope that you’ll all enjoy. Oh in case you’re wondering, I was singing a loud and high A natural from a Brahms art song. Letting it all hang out. :)

A word from Velvet D'Amour

My muse, Velvet D’Amour has written a response to Vogue Italia’s recent editorial with plus size models. If you haven’t yet seen it, I encourage you to utilize your favorite search engine and revel in the beauty.

In the mean-time, I’m MIA in Europe. Why? A summer lieder program. Singing is the game. I haven’t blogged due to work, shoddy internet, and mixed emotions. I didn’t exactly want to start ranting about the little things until I was sure that I wasn’t blowing them out of proportion. I’m STILL not sure. So, stay tuned.

Enjoy!

When fat is just a descriptor it takes the power away from those who want to hurl an insult. When I’m having a business meeting with someone I’ve not met I tell them “I’m a short, fat, brunette”. Plenty of people have told me “Oh, don’t call yourself fat!” but nobody has ever said “Oh, don’t call yourself brunette!”
