A New Resource for the Fashionable Working Woman

July 16, 2014

As a stylist, it’s my job to constantly be on the lookout for new resources for my clients in order to best serve their wardrobing needs. This includes building relationships with other style professionals such as hairstylists and makeup artists, test-driving cobblers and tailors in different areas and, of course, investigating new brands and designers and seeking out new boutiques and local vendors.

The most recent “add” to my list of resources is L.K. Bennett. The British label, probably best known as being one of Princess Kate’s go-tos, first came to America in 2011 and is brand new to my neck of the woods with the opening of it’s downtown Boston location in January of this year. Over the past few weeks I have been in twice with clients and am thoroughly impressed.

Although the founding designer Linda K. Bennett got her start designing footwear, my recent visits were more focused on the clothing. Both clients are rising professionals in their respective careers and are required to dress in upper level business casual or business formal attire. In other words, structured dresses, pencil skirts and modern suiting separates are a must. And L.K. Bennett delivered just what we needed. 

Both women were thrilled with the sleek and sophisticated dresses, the feminine blouses, the unique jackets and the shoes, bags and other accessories that were readily accessible to complete the looks. Both women went home with shopping bags brimming with merchandise.

But, perhaps what was of most value both to them and to myself was the fact that the cuts, fits and fabrics were incredibly flattering to their hard-to-fit physiques. Both clients were petite on top and very curvy on bottom – classic pear shapes. In the more extreme case, the second client had refused to purchase a pencil skirt at any of the previous stores and had to be coaxed into the proper size of pants. At L.K. Bennett, she confidently purchased 2 form-fitting dresses that were final sale due to their seasonal discount because the heavyweight stretch material gave her body the support and structure that it required. A style win for sure!

If you have a similar dress code and/or a similar body type, I highly recommend that you check it out! They are online at www.us.lkbennett.com. Your favorite Adea base layers will be the perfect complements to their suiting, skirts, dresses and trousers!

From Bartender to Congresswoman

April 09, 2020

There are times when life throws you a curveball that’s so unbelievable you can barely believe it. This is what happened to a career politician by the name of Joseph Crowley in November 2018 when he was voted out of office. A 28-year-old female bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who received 57% of the vote – suddenly became the youngest woman to serve in the United States Congress.

“Reporters Ultimately Don’t Stop”

April 02, 2020 1 Comment

This is first time I’ve focused intensely and in-depth on a male for Adea. However, I truly believe the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow deserves this salute. In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

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.
