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.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

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.”

Are You Sleeping Well?

October 14, 2020

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!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

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.

Size Chart
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 contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
