Have you noticed how much dining in or out has changed in recent years? First of all: everything has to be recorded on one’s phone. Then we have to listen to a litany of: a) I’m on a diet, b) no carbohydrates, c) I’m a vegetarian, d) no salt ever, e) white sugar is a killer, f) no peanuts ever.

Ad infinitum. Ad absurdum.

Now, let’s take a close look at what is one of the most important features of the Marmont. The short answer is: PRIVACY. The hotel never publicly discusses its famous guests or reveals the names of those currently staying there. In other words: zippered lips are stage center.

When the first Monday in May rolls around, all eyes in the fashion world look to The Met. That is when New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts its fundraising gala for its Costume Institute. The gala's theme coincides with that year's fashion exhibit, which runs for a limited time. This year, the theme is "Notes on 'Camp'". Here's a brief description of that theme, courtesy of The Met.

For this week’s blog, and the next, I read three books about the famous Chateau Marmont Hotel, located at 8221 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. All three books, (that I will list at the end of next week’s blog) were written at different times. This means the information goes from 1929 when the Marmont opened to the present day. Some things may have changed – but not many.

There are buildings, and then there are symbols. What was quite transfixing about the events that unfolded before Easter in Paris was how people around the world, no matter their religion, were watching as Notre-Dame was burning. In fact, as I write this, it still seems surreal. Yet, the point being that a building turned into a symbol that for some had religious connotation but for others, it held memories, it held history and for others, it simply symbolized Paris to them, even for the many that had not ever stepped foot in France.

The Stones have been called “The Greatest Rock Band in the World” – a description that no one can dispute. They started in 1962 and now, 57 years later they’re still going strong – and still making news. We’ve written about the Stones before because they fascinate us.

There are some years where spring seems to linger, and it's great. Spring is one of my favorite seasons. Then there are other times that spring seems non-existent and winter goes straight into summer. This got me thinking about a summer wardrobe, as with my travels, I have already been hit with some hot and humid summer-like days. Of course, this gives me a reason to talk about summer wardrobe styling!

I first wrote about “Stitch Fix” for ADEA in a blog titled “Tech Savvy Females Reign” that appeared on March 14, 2018.

For the record, I do not remember the titles of all the ADEA blogs I’ve written and when they appeared. So I have a bright red three-hole binder to help me keep track of the month, year and headline of each blog.

I have been watching domestic goddess, Ina Garten, create mouth-watering delicacies on her cooking show forever. Now, it seems, we are in a new era where shows such as, “The World’s Worst Cook” or “How to Beat So-and-So in X-Minutes” reign supreme. Obviously this type of scheduling is geared to an audience that has no interest in watching a cook in the kitchen who whips up several superb dishes for a memorable lunch or dinner. I only catch The Barefoot Contessa now by accident: early mornings on days I can never remember.

As you are certain to know by now, I'm a fan of museums and especially fashion exhibits. There is something special about taking a step back into time via fashion. It tells us so much about the culture of the time, from the multi-layered ensembles women used to wear to the first bikini that came onto the scene to the androgynous style we see now.

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 email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
