Happy Friday to all! Anyone excited about the impending hurricane about to hit the east coast? Yeah, I did not think so. So strange that we have to be thinking about that and not about some snow storm.
I have heard and seen pictures of snow in Utah and way north but all I see in our parts is rain and more rain. I'll take it, just give me a little more cooler weather, but no ice. Thank you. Oh that was a prayer to God. :-)
So good news, I have at least three opera-related events I get to be a part of in the next couple of weeks. This is, after all, a website called Opera Singer in the Kitchen, right? It has been a tough transition not being to perform as much but I know it is for a season and I will take what I can.
I get to sing the Alleluia section of Mozart's Exsulate Jubilate this coming Sunday for Reformation Sunday at our church so I am really excited and well a little nervous since I have not been singing as much with THIS pregnancy as I had been being pregnant with Julianne. I leave it in God's hands because I sing it unto him. It gives me great joy singing and I love practicing in front of Julianne too. She lights up! :-)
Not to be vain or anything, but I AM continuing my Fashion Friday theme with a review of a lovely maternity called Séraphine Maternity. They are largely known in London and in Paris but are quickly growing in popularity in boutique shops in the US.
This company was founded by Parisian designer and stylist Cecile Reinaud and has grown in popularity with Hollowood starts for their elegant sense of style and the quality of design for pregnant women. Nice to know that they are now a world leading maternity fashion brand even after celebrating 10 years in the business.
I was able to try this beautiful knot dress in purple, my new favorite color. I ordered it in size 12 and I had to wait a few weeks, close to my 6 month mark to wear this dress because it felt big. I believe the sizes run a little bigger than usual so I would have gone with a size 10. The dress will probably fit better closer to my due date.
Even so, I received SO many compliments with this dress. Not only was the dress color attractive but the flow and fit of the dress was very comfortable.The great thing about this jersey dress is that I will be able to wear this as nursing dress too! It did have a bit of a plunging neck line so I for church I felt like I needed a safety pin to make sure I did not flash anyone. I then realized that the dress just needed to be adjusted. It felt wonderful!
You have a chance to try anything from this company because they are running a mid-season sale up to 50% off! I just purchased a lovely top that I will be showing off soon. Don't wait too long because this sale does not last for too long.
