Dressing for comfort and style this thanksgiving

Since November is already here and Thanksgiving plans for many are underway, I wanted to offer some styling tips that will allow you to be comfortable but still stylish this Thanksgiving.
1. Incorporate Trends. With sportswear-inspired trends popping up within nearly every category and brand, you can still look pulled together while being quite comfortable. The catch is to pair the trendy piece with something classic.

 

Take Club Monaco's faux leather joggers. They can easily be paired with Adea's V Neck Layering Top. You'd look chic and be quite comfortable.

 

 

Eileen Fisher's slouchy pants are another excellent option that are offered in various fabrications, including velvet pictured below, and would be great with an oversized sweater and an Adea Cami layered underneath.

 

2. Layer Accessorize. Even if you want to keep your outfit simple, such as leggings and a tunic layered over an Adea Bodysuit or a pair of jeans with an Adea Turtleneck, remember to accessorize. In this instance, accessorizing means having fun with costume jewelry, which even Coco Chanel approved of. 

 

One of my fondest Thanksgiving memories was meeting an amazing lady who was 80-years young. She kept it very simple and comfortable with black leggings and a black knit top. What she didn't keep simple was her accessories, which set her whole outfit off. From a statement necklace to layering bangles on one wrist - don't be afraid to mix and match metals and have fun with accessories.

 

3. Be Comfortable. This point may seem like I'm stating the obvious, but it's something we can all overlook, especially if we are wearing an outfit for the first time or trying to squeeze into those jeans we swore used to fit. To be comfortable and stylish, you need to feel comfortable and stylish from the very start. If you feel something is too snug or unflattering before you even begin your day, you are certain to become only more self-conscience of those factors after you layer on some turkey, pumpkin pie and friendly family banter.

 

Here's to dressing comfortably and stylishly this Thanksgiving. Enjoy each moment until then.

The Legendary Chateau Marmont, Part II

May 15, 2019

Now, let’s take a close look at what is one of the most important features of the Marmont. The short answer is: PRIVACY. The hotel never publicly discusses its famous guests or reveals the names of those currently staying there. In other words: zippered lips are stage center.

The Legendary Chateau Marmont, Part I

May 08, 2019

For this week’s blog, and the next, I read three books about the famous Chateau Marmont Hotel, located at 8221 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. All three books, (that I will list at the end of next week’s blog) were written at different times. This means the information goes from 1929 when the Marmont opened to the present day. Some things may have changed – but not many.

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.
