Dressing for comfort and style this thanksgiving

October 13, 2014

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.

Awkwafina is Going Strong

November 13, 2019

When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.

A Thrilling and Safe Experience

November 06, 2019

I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.

Why Do Women Have a Sell-By Date?

October 31, 2019 1 Comment

Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a morning person. This means that every day I get up, fire up the computer for emails, stagger into the kitchen to make a blistering hot, strong 20 oz. mug of coffee and finally, click on New York’s Channel One to check on the weather and/or news while sinking into the sofa and trying to wake up. Ergo: I hate mornings or as Moss Hart once famously said, “Nothing happens before noon, that doesn’t happen after.”

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.
