Why Denville? I grew up in Morris County, and moved to Denville three-and-a-half years ago, when I got married. We found the most fabulous townhouse in Berkshire Hills. Denville is near major highways, and I love the ability to be in Manhattan quickly, but escape after the rush—and we’re not confined
to a one-bedroom apartment, with no closet space
Favorite local spots? I love to walk around the center of town in the summer and stop in SmartWorld for an iced tea. Sergio’s is a perfect place to get Italian sandwiches (my favorite is mozzarella and tomato). Nearly every day, I’m at the Shoppes at Union Hill. I adore the ladies in Starbucks; they always have a green tea ready for me. And at least once a week I stop in Banana Republic to see what’s new.
Tell us more about your work: I am an on-air fashion expert. I worked as a stylist for magazines and TV, and opened a store in Verona when I was 24.
I enjoyed giving customers tips on what to wear and used the ideas for my book, 101 Glam Girl Ways to an Ultra Chic Lifestyle. I incorporate styling techniques, beauty ideas and tutorials on my YouTube channel and website (belladawn.com), so everyone can look a little more stylish and feel confident.
