"A girl went back to Napoli
Because she missed the scenery..."
I don't know about you guys, but we here in the northeast are roasting our keisters off with unseasonably roasty weather. I assume Californians and the like are used to this, but 90 degree days when it's barely May is evil. So I'm thinking it's time to start investing in some more new (read: old) summer dresses to beat the heat. And margaritas. And frozen daiquiris. But for now a vintage dress with a kicky novelty print will have to do. Like this seriously cool Vintage 50's GONDOLA Novelty Print Dress, (on Etsy from seller Vintage Critter) in a perfect-fo'-summa, cool rayon:
See?! Gondolas! That pretty much rules.
And since we're in a festive mood and all, perhaps a little mood musci will cure what ails us:
I have no idea what this freaky-ass video is all about. I figured we all know the Rosemary Clooney & Dean Martin versions, so please enjoy this video of some French actor named Gérard Darmon doing his version of Mambo Italiano, for some godforsaken reason. Also, it looks like a generic version of Muppets and Tony Bennett. Creepy awesomeness.
