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

Flash round:    

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)

Artificial Intelligence Enters Fashion

I first wrote about “Stitch Fix” for ADEA in a blog titled “Tech Savvy Females Reign” that appeared on March 14, 2018.

For the record, I do not remember the titles of all the ADEA blogs I’ve written and when they appeared. So I have a bright red three-hole binder to help me keep track of the month, year and headline of each blog.

The Super-talented Barefoot Contessa

April 03, 2019

I have been watching domestic goddess, Ina Garten, create mouth-watering delicacies on her cooking show forever. Now, it seems, we are in a new era where shows such as, “The World’s Worst Cook” or “How to Beat So-and-So in X-Minutes” reign supreme. Obviously this type of scheduling is geared to an audience that has no interest in watching a cook in the kitchen who whips up several superb dishes for a memorable lunch or dinner. I only catch The Barefoot Contessa now by accident: early mornings on days I can never remember.

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.
