living in: only you

by amym

Only You is a charmer of a rom-com. With Robert Downey Jr. at the helm and Marisa Tomei in some killer clothes, it’s covet-worthy in all respects. It tells the story of a woman who follows the advice dished out by a Ouija board in her middle school days and goes to Venice to find her soul mate, and guess what? Hijinks ensue. What you wouldn’t expect is how easy it is to fall for this flick, and its classy nineties-style only helps its cause. — Amy Merrick

That Venice is romantic is probably the world’s worst kept secret. Canal rides and ivy-covered gardens, tiled walls and tanned men — it didn’t take long for us to become smitten. Mistaken identities and cutout dresses only add to the intrigue, and whoops, we just whipped out our credit cards to chase down our soul mates, too.
