Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...


Come si dice "hoochie?"

Would you go to church dressed like this? Maybe Playboy has a new "Brides" issue...

"Come si dice" hmmmmmmmm, I wonder what that means. Yeah I get the hoochie part except I might have said "hoochie Mama". Surely that is not an advertisement for bridal gowns.

I have different colours of that very outfit so that I can rotate them according to the weather on Sundays.

I've seen this ad. Apparently she (Elisabetta Gregoraci) got her tv career on the up by bedding politicians who could help her along. So if the dress fits... :)

Imagine walking into the church wearing that dress!

It all depends on how you pronounce it. Why, does a' stroscia sound better? Or maybe zoccola.

Yeah, she is Briatore's bit. All that money going round, you'd think she'd be able to afford a better dress. hee hee

Hi Tracie! Wow, great blog. So great to have found another expat, from the Campania area!

I'm just reading through the entries and this one deserved a quick response. I honestly can't believe that a dress like that was designed to be married in? Well wait, let me rephrase... to get married in a church with that type of dress is just so wrong, imo!
I remember when I got married (here) in '97 the priest made a comment at the altar about one of my guests (a friend from America) who was wearing a backless dress. He didn't target her directly, but he got his point through enough that one of the old ladies threw one of their (smelly) sweaters over my friend. We've laughed about that moment ever since.
