Social media is a powerful medium where I have discovered a plethora of amazing people and brands. One faithful day I connected with Adaeze, and I am so glad I did.
Adaeze is originally from Sacramento and has always had a passion for all things design. Her mom taught her to sew as little girl, hence clothes and fashion was an interest for her from very early on.
Adaeze is a licensed architect by day with one of the top hospitality firms on the West Coast. With a consuming career, creating clothes took a backseat for a while. Then her passion for creating clothes was reignited after entering a charity fashion show to raise money for a good cause.
Back behind the sewing machine, Adaeze started making pieces for herself, which lead to requests from family and friends. This eventually grew into her Etsy shop, The House of LVA.
“I strive to create pieces that are classic at their core with a modern twist. – Adaeze Cadet, Owner House of LVA”
LVA stands for ” Le Vrai Adaeze” which is French for “The True Adaeze”.
Adaeze explained that she chose that name because this line is where she can create designs that are 100% her. Being able to have 100% creative control is much different from architecture, which takes a lot of collaboration and is filled with codes and regulations that change the original design.
Now the day has come where House of LVA online store has officially launched and I am absolutely delighted to introduce you all to this wonderful new option for us tall girls.
House of LVA focuses on creating pieces that are true to an elegant style, balancing classic silhouettes with high fashion trends.
To get a feel for her collection I selected The Diamond Pencil Skirt and the Muse tee to construct a fun ensemble. The Diamond Pencil Skirt is made of a polyester blend fabric that features a midi length with elastic waistband. I love this statement skirt that has tremendous potential. Dress it up with a blouse and heels, or dress it down with sneakers and a t-shirt.
“I use my architectural design eye to pay attention to balance and proportions to create eye-catching items that help you stand out from the crowd. – Adaeze Cadet, Owner House of LVA “
The Muse Tee has a classic fit with a crew neckline. Combine the tee with jeans or a skirt and add a little edge. The white fabric appliqué letters give edge to the simple silhouette.
The ordering process with House of LVA was so incredibly easy, I emailed over my measurements and not long after I was welcomed by a package from House of LVA. If you have any questions please make sure to reach out to them HERE.
Most items sold are made to order, designed and sewn by the beautiful Adaeze. Being 5’8″ with long limbs and a 34″ inseam, Adeaze understands how hard it can be to find clothes that fit properly, hence she offers custom sizing free of charge.
I have incredible respect for woman like Adaeze that are very pro-active in making sure us long legged ladies have options. Go check out House of LVA now and tell them Bree sent you!
