The women who wear Adea are a diverse, exciting and interesting bunch of ladies and we are always curious to learn more about each of them. So, as part of a new feature on our blog we’ll be highlighting an Adea customer each month. We are thrilled to share their stories and hope you enjoy them as well. If you want to share your story in an upcoming month email us!
We interviewed Heena, an acute care surgeon, wife and mother of two (a girl age 10 and a boy age 6).Tell us a little about yourself:
With all my years of training (10 years after medical school and college) it took a while to setting into my grown up life. Up until then, it was easy with studying, training to be a surgeon, and starting a family to consistently neglect myselfignore the way I felt on the inside and on the outside. But after I finally did settle down (at age 36), I decided that I needed to overcome the excuses, the 100+ hour work weeks, and the endless to-do's of family life and own myself.
I have been cultivating my interest and efforts in family, fitness, and fashion to be the me that I want to be. I am even making time to blog this journey heelskicksscalpel.wordpress.com. Finding Adea as my go-to layering (and now only ones I own) pieces were a key fashion find and I am delighted to be featured on the Adea blog.
My personal style is… bold but sophisticated or effortlessly chic.
My personal styling trick is… I don't have one per se but given my body type I pick pieces/cuts that either distract the eye from my mid-section or that create the appearance of a narrower mid-section (e.g. with color blocking).
I’d be lost without… my fitbit. It is a recent acquisition but I feel naked without it. I like how it reminds me to do things like take the stairs or park further from the entrance at work or get up and walk when I am working on my next manuscript.
The best place I’ve ever traveled to is… to Agra for the Taj Mahal.
My favorite Adea piece is… the 3/4 sleeve scoop neck tee in white. I have 3 of them I wear them so often. I wear them under lots of half sleeve/cap sleeve/sleeveless tops and get tons more mileage out of them into the cold months.

When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.
I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.
Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a morning person. This means that every day I get up, fire up the computer for emails, stagger into the kitchen to make a blistering hot, strong 20 oz. mug of coffee and finally, click on New York’s Channel One to check on the weather and/or news while sinking into the sofa and trying to wake up. Ergo: I hate mornings or as Moss Hart once famously said, “Nothing happens before noon, that doesn’t happen after.”
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.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
