Dressing for the Weather – Literally / Cum sa ne Imbracam in Functie de Vreme – O Abordare Literala

Ce-ati zice de niste haine (OK, rochii) care sa reflecte la modul literal conditiile meteo de afara sau, cine stie, pe cele sufletesti? Si cu coloana sonora! (Click pe numele melodiei).

EN: How about some clothes (OK, dresses) that literally reflect the weather outside or possibly your mood? Soundtrack included! (Click on the song name).

Rochie scurta si mulata (bodycon) cu imprimeu furtuna/ fulgere – 22,50£ (aprox. 117 ron) la Asos, aici.

SONG: A-ha – Crying in the Rain

De fapt ideea postarii a pornit de la rochia asta, care mi se pare ca intruchipeaza perfect expresia “tuna si fulgera”. Numai buna pentru cand v-ati certat cu iubitul, sunteti in acea perioada a lunii sau pur si simplu vi s-au inecat corabiile. (Iar daca stati intr-un pahar – gen cel in care isi face Dita Von Teese nazdravaniile – puteti fi chiar “furtuna intr-un pahar cu apa”).

EN: Perfect for “storming into the room” or “stealing someone’s thunder”. Or, you know, if you’ve had a fight with your significant other/ it’s that time of the month/ you’re just in a hating mood.

Am si variante la melodie/ EN: Alternative soundrack available:

  • In cazul in care insistati sa ganditi pozitiv si mergeti pe linia fulger >> curent electric >> atractie, viteza etc./ EN: In case you wanna think happy thoughts (Tell me what you’re on, ’cause I want it too :)): SONG: MGMT – Electric Feel sau/ or John Travolta – Greased Lightning.

Dupa furtuna, CURCUBEUL:
EN: After the storm comes the RAINBOW:

SONG: Israel KamakawiwoʻoleSomewhere Over the Rainbow

Din pacate mie melodia imi aminteste de momentul cand moare Dr. Greene in serialul ER :(. Ca sa nu mai vorbim ca si interpretul a murit. Si Judy Garland… OK, deci intelegeti ideea, curcubeele NU au chiar cele mai vesele asociatii in mintea mea. Sa incercam altceva:

EN: Unfortunately this song reminds me of Dr. Greene dying on ER (sobs!). Not to mention that the singer died as well. AND Judy Garland… So OK, you get the point: I’m not a very a positive person. Maybe something else to cheer the mood:


CERUL ALBASTRU il pot exemplifica chiar eu:
EN: I’m wearing the BLUE SKY myself:

SONG: Azzurro – Adriano Celentano

SONG: Love is Blue

Versurile nu sunt tocmai vesele, dar melodia mie mi-a creat intotdeauna o dispozitie buna, de cer senin – probabil pentru ca prima oara am auzit-o in reclama asta veche la Barilla (din vremurile cu Canale 5 si RT 4), unde toata lumea e dragalasa.

EN: The lyrics may not be all that joyful, but this song always puts me in a good mood – probably because I first heard it in this old Barilla commercial where everybody’s nice and cozy.

Sau ceva mai de drum lung (si cu Johnny Depp tanar)/ EN: Or something for the open road (with a very young Johnny Depp): SONG: Into the Great Wide Open.


Si apogeul – imprimeul INSORIT:
