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)

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!
I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
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 contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
