Immediately after New Year's Day I start searching for the first hints of spring. Warm, sunny days are still a long way off and patience is not my strong suit. So, to ward off the winter doldrums, I try to plan a trip in February to keep my spirits up. This year’s adventure falls over Presidents' Day Weekend: a five-day trip to Cuba!
A few months ago, after much research about legal ways to visit Cuba, I contacted a licensed travel agency and got the ball rolling. The timing couldn’t have been better. Just recently the US government began to ease restrictions on travel to Cuba and Americans, it seems, will have fewer difficulties visiting in the future. Over time Cubans will most certainly benefit from the eased restrictions and additional foreign investment. On the other hand, I imagine the vintage 1950s cars and distressed architecture will quietly disappear. I can’t get there fast enough.
At Adea we love traveling and exploring, anywhere, for any reason. We’ve blogged about getaways before in this post and it’s no secret that our bodywear is perfect for traveling. While we LOVE to travel, packing is a different story. Cuba poses a particular packing challenge because I don’t know anyone who has been there. Well, besides Beyonce and Jay-Z, but I don't exactly have her wardrobe or her entourage to carry it. I’m a little unsure of what to pack.
This weekend I'll use one of these packing lists to finalize my travel outfits and I'll post the results next week. Has anyone been to Cuba? Can you weigh in on what I should pack?

Let the racing begin! The 106th edition of the Tour de France has begun. Even if you aren't a sporting fan, you must give the Tour a try. In fact, here are three reasons why you need to watch at least one stage of this year's Tour de France:
Back in the day, buildings such as this were called “girls’ residences” and there were dozens of them – now there are only nine left. Seeing an article on this subject titled, “Maiden Manhattan” by writer Jessica Dailey that appeared in the New York Post on Thursday, March 14, 2019 definitely brought back memories.
Plans were in the works for us to see the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden when, on Tuesday, March 26th, I received a copy of the April issue of Veranda magazine in the mail. As per usual, I sat down to give it a quick run-through to see if there was anything that caught my fancy.
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.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
