“Better the Devil (in a Prada dress) you know”

As I am not the classic girl who goes into raptures at the prospect of an afternoon of shopping , in fact, more than once I pretended being influenced to avoid them , I must admit that reading this book made me want to dress better, cure details, manicure , buy jewellery , hats , handbags, shoes … ah shoes …… ..

Imagine the beach in lateSummer, early in the morning when the sun is still forgiving tumblr_mp35gsh8hy1qhb2u5o1_r7_500and the sand is wet from the night ‘s events, a nice bowl of ice cream , the right soundtrack * to feel like stars in disguise , sun glasses … and “The devil Wears Prada . ” The novel. Remember when I told you not to trust the books with  covers too ” Vogue ” style? … .. Oops ! Well , how is it that you say … the exception that makes the rule.
Yes, once again, I find myself talking about a book that roughly certainly most of you will have seen in the movie version ! And once again I invite you to follow the advice to go back to the source and read the Lauren Weisberger novel[1]; because , despite a stellar cast that…

“If on a Summer’s morning ‘He & She’…”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

giphy10<<It will be Summer — eventually.
Ladies — with parasols —
Sauntering Gentlemen — with Canes —
And little Girls — with Dolls —
Will tint the pallid landscape —
As ‘twere a bright Bouquet —
Thro’ drifted deep, in Parian —
The Village lies — today —
The Lilacs — bending many a year —
Will sway with purple load —
The Bees — will not despise the tune —
Their Forefathers — have hummed —
The Wild Rose — redden in the Bog —
The Aster — on the Hill
Her everlasting fashion — set —
And Covenant Gentians — frill —
Till Summer folds her miracle —
As Women — do — their Gown —
Of Priests — adjust the Symbols —
When Sacrament — is done >>
– Emily Dickinson –

Apparently, from accurate market research , inSummer the readers multiply compared to all…

the happy lull of lazy rest of the summer , are the ideal setting for a terrace at sunset , a glass ofGewurztraminer , and a delicious fresh tuna tartare * , to be tasted on a comfortable wicket sofa on a terrace at sunset.
giphy7It would be the perfect scenery for a romantic evening , with a few citronella candles to avoid being eaten by tigers mosquitoes , but if you were to be the single case-hardened ( for yours or others choice) , then I have a fantastic alternative for you !
Perhaps because of the luxurious holiday location in the Hamptons , the TV series “Revenge” has always made me…

“Pancakes, Brandy & Manipulation”

The first time I was in a TV studio I was enchanted by the dazzling lights, the multicolours panels and .... by make-up artists, prompts, hunchbacks, and a thousand other artefacts that are committed to making true what is so fake. Naively, I was convinced that the quiz I was taking part to with my … Continua a leggere “Pancakes, Brandy & Manipulation”

“Scream(ing) in the Summer”

The horror has never been my favourite kind, but there has been a Summer during my teenage years when a series of such films stepped out and so I have seen them all, becoming almost a fan. Rarely these stories make me really scared, insted their soundtracks leave  me with that sense of subdued anguish … Continua a leggere “Scream(ing) in the Summer”
