The women who wear Adea are a diverse and exciting bunch of ladies and we are always curious to learn more about each of them. Once a month we highlight an Adea customer and share their personal story and style sense with you. We hope you enjoy reading about these amazing women as much as we do!
This month we interviewed Hillary Hansen, wife and mother of 3, who is about to start another, exciting chapter in her life. We are thrilled for her! Read the full interview here:
I am happily married and the mother 3 bright young children. I have spent the past 10 years pouring over news magazines, non-fiction books, and newspapers. I love listening to podcasts, TED Talks, and other news outlets. I love it so much that this year I decided it was time to go back to school in this field. I applied to Columbia University in New York and got accepted into their prestigious school of Journalism. I begin in the fall and I am beyond excited! I hope to become an on-air reporter within a few years.
My personal style is….Simple and sophisticated
My personal styling trick is …… I have a LOT of highlights and low lights in my hair so I don’t have to have it done very often
I’d be lost without….the gym. Every day, every day, every day. I need to go to think, stretch my back, clear my mind and relieve stress.
The best place I’ve ever traveled to is…SO MANY!! Oh America the Beautiful, how I love you!! I have climbed the Filbert steps to the Coit Tower in San Francisco, kissed atop the Empire State Building in Manhattan, had a moment of silence at the WWII Monument in Washington DC, walked the cobblestone Beacon Street in Boston, took in the stunning views of L.A. and from the J. Paul Getty Museum, rocked some cowboy boots at a Malcolm Gladwell book signing in Dallas, and had pie at the Space Needle in Seattle. And I feel like this is still the beginning, there are so many more places that I want to go.
My favorite Adea piece is…The ¾ sleeve Boat neck!! In navy and white. I get so many compliments on this one when I wear it. I dress it up for church or wear it with jeans
Morning person or night owl? Morning
Coffee or tea? Tea
Cats or dogs? I don't have any pets.
Beach or mountains? City, I love museums, vintage book stores and I am a softy for a great bakery. (pun intended)

Switzerland is a peaceful nation that hasn’t been involved in a war for 500 years. But that’s not its only claim to fame: it is also home to Institut Villa Pierrefeu (I.V. P.), a finishing school for females located in a village high above picturesque Montreux on Lake Geneva. In the October 8, 2018 issue of The New Yorker I read a fascinating article, written by Alice Gregory, who came up with a lot of eye-opening info about this rara avis institution.
Last month I wrote about Crazy Rich Asians, the first book in an over-the-top trilogy written by Kevin Kwan. Full disclosure: I didn’t even KNOW there were three books until an Asian acquaintance, with a classy Australian accent, told me she was reading Book #3.
With all of the new fashion coming at us, especially with spring collections hitting the stores, it's easy to get caught up in the latest trends or styling fads. Of course I enjoy breaking them down for you, such as in Fashion Week Street Style Trends or The Belt Bag, but for this post, I decided to go to basics. That is, back to basics with Adea.
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.
