la bella figura

In Italy, there’s an expression known as la bella figura, in which Italian natives not only dress to impress but also exhibit their brightest, best personalities when in the company of others. Libra transits help us achieve that kind of inner and outer beauty, making us feel like the fairest of them all.

A little italiàno travels well

So, dievca has been at a caffeine loss since Scandinavia.  The French coffee is not as strong.
dievca was forced to seek alternative coffee and espresso filled the bill.
Thank goodness for the Italians!
(and a heck of a lot of them are wandering Normandy and Brittany)

Ciao! “(I am your) slave”


Ruth Orkin: American Girl in Italy

Ciao comes from the Italian dialectal term schiavo which means “(I am your) slave,” or more colloquially “your humble servant.” It ultimately finds its roots in the medieval Latin sclavus meaning “slave.”

So, without further ado, dievca says:

Ahhh, bella submissive — wearing Valery

Ahh, a dievca framed in Italian elegance —
— waiting to serve her Master in beauty.
Ciao, Bella, Ciao!

Valery S.P.A.  is an Italian brand of lingerie and swimwear which offers 7 lines. Their philosophy (translated into English):

Valery renovates every collection with vibrant emotions to be always one step forward and with the desire to leave a sign and accelerate the beats.  To wear, make the other see or hide something, it become a complex language, similar to the phonetic one. Through this kind of language several choices are communicated: values and feelings though the lingerie.

At present in fashion world exist only two principal elements to attract consumer’s  attention: one is the power as expressed by the luxurious object and the other one is the strong and erotic charge to which Valery is very careful.
