|The birth of her daughter re-awakened Carolyn’s desire to pursue her love of style, and to transform women’s lives with the power of clothes and attitude! Carolyn first realized that clothes can transform how you feel in second grade when her church didn’t permit the girls to wear the traditional white dresses and veils for their First Communion. This did not make Carolyn happy, even though her mother bought her a beautiful, cream dress with embroidery. However, the morning of her First Communion, Carolyn received a special present from her Aunt — a fabulous blue, faux fur coat that made her feel like she could rule the world. She forgot all about white dresses and realized that blue, faux fur was the way to go!|
Carolyn resides in Morris Plains, New Jersey, with her husband and two children. She is on the board of the Northwest New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners and a member of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce.
