We are thrilled to introduce our guest blogger and stylist, Marisa. Each week Marisa will use her expertise to bring you fresh style ideas, fashion news, and tips for wearing Adea’s pieces. Marisa currently works for Stilista|Boston, Boston’s full-service style agency. As a personal shopper and stylist, Marisa educates her clients about the cuts and proportions that are best suited for their body type and selects fashion-forward yet classic pieces that will stand the test of time. She helps each of her clients to build and maintain a wardrobe and style that not only suits their lifestyle, but also expresses their unique personality.

In addition - so as not to let her English major from Colby College go to waste - Marisa writes on a weekly basis about fashion trends, tips and tricks for Stilista|Boston’s blog and is the author of a daily Facebook series entitled, “Stylist Tip of the Day,” for which she posts a daily fashion tip for her Facebook audience. What started as a personal challenge of sorts has turned into a well-followed and much “liked” daily routine. She resolves to finish out the year without missing a single day.
 
When shopping for and styling herself, Marisa selects pieces with simple silhouettes, but a bit of a tough-girl edge. As a result, she has a very hard time turning down a great pair of dark, raw denim jeans, a fabulous pair of leather boots or a fitted leather jacket.
 
We asked Marisa a few questions to get to know her better…
 
What is your must-have accessory?:
I’m not that big on accessories for myself as I tend to make the focus of my outfits more about layering and the interesting combination of pieces and silhouettes. However, my left wrist has 3 woven “friendship” bracelets on it that never come off and I rarely leave the house without adding 3-4 leather wrap bracelets to the pile. Oh, and I LOVE scarves. My neck is rarely without one from September through May.
 
Who is your favorite style icon?:
Gwen Stefani. Without a doubt. She is a style innovator, not just an icon. She has as signature look – the platinum hair, the red lips and the rock star glamour - yet each outfit feels fresh, new, exciting and somehow unexpected. And she has an amazing knack for successfully combining opposites – hard and soft, clashing patterns and colors, masculine and feminine, sweet and tough, preppy and punk…the list goes on. 
 
If you could revive something from the 80’s what would it be?:
I think that most of it – for better or for worse – has been revived already. What I respond to most on a personal level is the head-toe-denim trend. I love an oversized, pale chambray shirt over a pair of dark denim skinny jeans. It is an insanely simple way to get dressed and looks great with a pair of boots and a leather jacket.

Australia in the Winter Months

August 12, 2020

I’ve never been able to pull it off BUT I’ve always wanted to go to Australia – everything I’ve heard about it fascinates me. That said I often watch those “survival” TV shows where a person takes a wrong turn in a desert, forest, mountain or the outback and is lost for days on end. Then an “outdoor survivalist” comes on and says, “If only they had done thus-and-so – they would have had food and water.”

“Come Fly With Me”

August 05, 2020

Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.

Favorite Spots, Five Boroughs

July 29, 2020

In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
