Living in Manhattan, it's easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of everything that surrounds you. Whether it's the honking of the yellow taxies or the various sirens going off or the realization you have over-booked yourself and left little time to get from one spot to the next, it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of New York City.
Early on after moving to NYC, it wasn't until I took a train only about an hour outside of the city that I began to realize the power of leaving the city. It's this unique feeling where you grow more fond of the hustle and bustle when you are able to leave and grow more intrigued by the idea of NYC in general when you remember there is a world outside of the city - one that offers a whole new set of opportunities.
Recently, I took a quick trip down south where I got to take a moment to sit on the beach. I wasn't there long, but I was there long enough that I got to soak in the tranquility of the sea. Its sounds were obviously different than NYC. Yet, that was the beauty - the sea sang to its own tune, and it offered a tranquility all of its own.
With the recent Cruise collections having hit the runway, it seems like a great way to close out this post. In fashion, we will always have the hustle and bustle of NYC and other urban cities like it. It is what helps the business of the fashion industry stay in motion. Yet, it's the moments of tranquility that allow the inspiration needed for the fashion industry to move forward to shine through.
If you haven't seen the latest Cruise collections, including those from Chanel and Dior, be sure to take a look at them. And, begin to wonder what sea adventure possibly inspired these collections.
P.S. With the days getting warmer, be sure to stock up on Camisoles - Adea Camisoles of course - they are great to layer!

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.
