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 Instagram announced they would be running a test where they would "hide the total number of likes and video views for some people" in some countries, the feedback was mixed. I spoke with some of my friends, from around the globe, who lauded the decision. Their reasoning was varied but with many pointing to how many teens and even young children are feeling the pressure to post and will only feel validated when they get so many likes.
Last week we introduced you to the newly opened Hudson Yards and provided lots of basic, down-to-earth information. CLICK HERE for a fantastic video of the grand opening ceremony (sound on/full screen). This week we’re going to focus on the shops and restaurants you will find as well as “The Vessel” (New York’s answer to the Eiffel Tower) and “The Shed” (a performance and exhibition space that expands and contracts).
No matter where you are in the world today, it seems one cannot escape politics. As I do not want this post to be an oxymoron, my goal is to keep it on topic - politics in fashion?. It was not that long ago, I cancelled one of my previously beloved fashion magazines (and as you read this, it wasn't American Vogue). Without thinking twice, I cited the reason being that I was a subscriber to this magazine because it used to be about fashion, now it was about fashion and politics.
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.
