Following her dreams in fashion, Ellie Zieminski opened her first women’s clothing boutique in 2003, based on the premise that women can look beautiful and feel comfortable in their own skin regardless of their age or size. She quickly developed a following through her innate ability to style clients and ensure they always walk away happy. Clients were also surprised by her refreshing sense of honesty when she would tell them to pass on an item. Today, 17 years later, Zieminski owns three boutiques and has an avid fan base. “Fashion should be fun — a way for you to express yourself and feel comfortable in your own skin,” she explains. “At Love Bella, we want to build you up to be your best. I am the kind of person that will tell you if you have spinach in your teeth and that’s the way I run my business — we will give you advice like a trusted girlfriend rather than a client. I believe that’s a major component that sets us apart.” Love Bella was voted “Best Women’s Boutique” by readers for Best of Westchester this year. Zieminski lives in Stamford, CT, with her four-year-old son Sawyer, her husband Michael, and their two dogs and two cats.
