Happy 2018! It seems I say this every year, although, it's true - I can't believe it's a new year already.
Here's one of the New Year posts from the Adea Archives - Color in Accessories for the New Year.
While for many, this is the time for New Year's Resolutions, I'm going to keep with the above theme and look at a new fashion trend.
For this one, it's once again courtesy of Gucci. Ever since Alessandro Michele took the reigns as creative director, the Italian brand is setting the stage for fashion with other brands following suit.
Remember this post - The Rise of the Mules
Now, it's stirrup pants.
Yes, you read that right - stirrup pants.
Of course, if you aren't quite ready to venture into this arena, I recommend Adea's Leggings in Italian Jersey. Or, even if you want to put your own spin on this trend, these leggings are a great option. You can pair them with an oversized sweater and some boots. Or, you can test out some kitten heels, which yes, if you haven't yet seen them in your local boutiques, they are back. The kitten heel was seen a lot on the runways, but especially early on within the Dior camp.
Stirrups and kitten heels, now these are two ways to start out the New Year in style. And of course, do not forget about the trusty mule shoe that is still seen all over - just purchase the faux fur option for winter.
Happy New Year!

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.”

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!

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.
