Yesterday Shaun, one of our bloggers, touched on the multiple ways we can "splurge" on luxury items. Not all splurges have to be physical goods however. Actress, Penelope Cruz, chooses calories instead of luxury goods. Others love the costly vacation.
For me, the chance to experience a new culture, eat exotic food, and peek into others lives is priceless. My recent trip to Cuba wasn't exactly a luxury trip. It entailed quite a bit of "roughing it". But for most of us, myself included, any overseas travel is a luxury and a big time commitment.
On that note, I wanted to share a few more pictures and a short video from my recent trip to Cuba that I've blogged about in this post and this one. Traveling to Cuba is truly a visual delight. There is so much to look at and take in from the architecture and interesting people to the constant live music and street traffic.

I also had the opportunity to take a few hours of salsa lessons and learned the Cuban-style salsa rueda (or "wheel"), where multiple partners move in a circle and switch mid-dance.

Switzerland is a peaceful nation that hasn’t been involved in a war for 500 years. But that’s not its only claim to fame: it is also home to Institut Villa Pierrefeu (I.V. P.), a finishing school for females located in a village high above picturesque Montreux on Lake Geneva. In the October 8, 2018 issue of The New Yorker I read a fascinating article, written by Alice Gregory, who came up with a lot of eye-opening info about this rara avis institution.
Last month I wrote about Crazy Rich Asians, the first book in an over-the-top trilogy written by Kevin Kwan. Full disclosure: I didn’t even KNOW there were three books until an Asian acquaintance, with a classy Australian accent, told me she was reading Book #3.
With all of the new fashion coming at us, especially with spring collections hitting the stores, it's easy to get caught up in the latest trends or styling fads. Of course I enjoy breaking them down for you, such as in Fashion Week Street Style Trends or The Belt Bag, but for this post, I decided to go to basics. That is, back to basics with Adea.
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.
