Summer is coming

Although it seems that many of us just got through winter, spring now seems to have slipped right past us. Women are wearing sleeveless dresses and shirts to the office already, and it got me thinking about ways to start getting into the summer mode.

Here are five items to start shopping for now to get you ready for summer:

  1. Sunscreen. I'm an advocate of sunscreen, but I do believe that not all are created equal and reading labels is a must. A good resource to look into the ingredients of your favorite sunscreen is the EWG's Skin Deep Skincare Database, which offers insights into many sunscreens on the market. 
  1. Sunglasses. Not only are sunglasses much-appreciated by your eyes, but they are a fun way to spice up any outfit. Try a colored pair of shades or a uniquely styled frame to change up your routine.
  1. Tees. You know my love for tees, as chronicled in Sporting A Tee For Any Occasion.They are a classic piece that can be dressed up or down and perfect for those balmy summer nights.

Be sure to check out Adea's Modal Tees.

  1. Reading Material. There's nothing better than grabbing a good book or your favorite magazine and sitting on the porch, in the park or even at the beach while reading. 

Here's a fun challenge for you. Next time you are reading while enjoying the scenery surrounding you, try to turn off all mobile devices, so you can truly soak in the experience and savor the moment.

  1. Something Outdoor-Inspired. Whether you are a runner, walker or biker, find that something that will motivate you or excite you to go outdoors, such as a new pair of running shoes, a new sports bra or downloading some new music to your device. Take this time to enjoy the sunshine and the memories it can create.

Living in New York City, it's amazing what beautiful days can do - they bring people out in flocks to simply enjoy the park and the outdoors. I often wonder where they have been hiding, but it's probably the same place I've been for most of the winter - indoors.

Enjoy summer, as it sure feels like it's on its way.

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.
