It’s been a while since I’ve written a post. I’ve been busy working hard on my album and I will be releasing the first single from the album very soon. I bought myself this Betsy and Adam red lace gown to do some promo videos for the release.

The dress is quite lovely I think. I got it on sale for just under $70. The original price tag is listed at $278. It’s an open back gown that features all-over lace fabrication, a rounded neckline, 3/4 sleeves.

Yes, I know I’m trying too hard to look cute and it aint workin’…

Life has been pretty good lately. The process of creating songs really fulfills me to the point where I have been experiencing moments of great joy every day, and without needing to do anything other than just doing what makes me happy. And I’m very excited and can’t wait to release my first single. I don’t have any expectations that anything grand is going to result. I’m not chasing stars. This is just a passion project. It’s about fulfilling my goals and dreams for myself, and experiencing the joy that comes from knowing that I accomplished what I set out to achieve. And I have a long way to go. Don’t get me wrong, this is a tough journey I’m on. It’s stressful, it’s expensive and it’s scary. But at the same time it’s fun and fulfilling in a way that nothing else has ever been for me.

About the Betsy and Adam red lace gown…

It’s a floor length gown that I purchased online at (link is an affiliate link). It has a fitted silhouette with a flared hem. As can see there’s a lot of extra fabric. I think the excess fabric is due to my height. I’m pretty short. I think the dress is intended to be worn by taller ladies. On me it drags on the floor.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
