Dressed by Lori’s is a shopping experience in downtown Millburn inspired by the classic familiarity of Audrey Hepburn, designed for the dynamic lives of modern women. Lori Csik opened Dressed by Lori after a 30-plus year career in fashion and the retail industry. Over the years, Lori has developed a strong sense of what women are looking to achieve with fashion and how she can help them bring out the best version of themselves, which is what differentiates her from the rest. Lori has an eye for styles and fits that promise to compliment varying body types and a craving for designers creating distinct American made products. She believes a dress can take a women from “day to play” giving her clients the flexibility they need to lead a busy life, but look and feel amazing while doing it!
The shop is open Monday through Saturday. She employs two interns, a home-schooled high school student and a college student at Seton Hall, both of whom are interested in fashion and merchandizing. She also employs store manager, Jen Zullo. Ms. Csik hires by personality, rather than experience, because she learned through her work in human relations, that “personality can’t be taught.” She loves running the business and every year makes it better by introducing new designers. She focuses on American designers and those who manufacture in the United States. The designers carried by Dressed By Lori included Amy Matto, Shoshanna, Nanette Lepore, Yoana Baraschi, Mara Hoffman, Karina, and Byron Lars.
During the year, Dressed By Lori participates in several events, both commercial and philanthropic. It hosts “Style and Focus,” an event, which for $299, a woman is provided with professional photography and hair, make-up, and clothes styling and design. In November, the shop participates in Dress for Success with a cocktail party.
“I continue to grow by adding new designers and merchandise and by planning very focused events that include the community, networking groups and charitable organizations. I believe that women should support other women and that’s why I’m an huge advocate for Dress for Success,” she said.
She offers a wide variety of one-piece dressing including brands like Amy Matto, Byron Lars Beauty Mark, Cynthia Vincent, Karina, Mara Hoffman, Nanette Lepore, Shoshanna and Tracy Reese and Yoana Baraschi all American Designers.
