I discovered this wonderful book, Hotel Il Pellicano a few years ago. The cover pictured the secluded deep blue waters of Tuscany’s Porto Ercole and inside the chic Hotel Il Pellicano and its guests including Emilio Pucci, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Britt Ekland, Kenneth Tynan, and Susanna Agnelli from 1964 through to current day. I get transported back in time whenever I flip through the pages, almost like having a mini holiday…almost. Until I can afford that dream holiday, I’ll stick to the deep blue sea of clothes in my closet.
