Local Love: Soneca Guadara

Soneca Guadara is a personal fashion stylist who helps women feel beautiful. She is based out of Franklin Lakes, and today she shared her Local Love with HipNewJersey.com!

 

What is your favorite local restaurant?
Felina in Ridgewood. Since opening its doors last year, this has been my favorite local spot for Italian food. The ingredients are sourced locally and everything on the menu is so delicious. It’s a beautiful space set in a former iconic bank. It’s a little bit of old-world meets new world.

 

What is your favorite local boutique?
Write Occasion in Wyckoff. I can always find the best stationery. I always end up buying not just for a gift, but also for myself.

 

What is your favorite salon or spa?
I love going to House of DeCicco in Ridgewood. This is my favorite place for my hair needs. John is my go-to guy for color! Not to mention that Lewis, the Owner, always has the biggest smile on his face and makes time to come and say hello. I can honestly say this is my home away from home.

 

What is your favorite local health and wellness center?
I really enjoy going to NE Laser Institute in Ridgewood for anything facial related. Zizi, the Owner, always makes the effort to ensure her facialists are up to date on all the latest techniques. I also love the fact that most of the products are natural and organic. My face has never looked better!

 

Where is your favorite local place for home decor?
Wostbrock Home in Ridgewood. They have everything under the sun, from home furnishings to interior design.

 

Where is your favorite local daytime hangout?
The Indian Trail Club is my all-time favorite daytime hangout. It’s a place where I go with my family and have created some amazing memories. It’s not just for the summer, it’s an all-year-round club. I guess I can say I am pretty lucky to have it in my neighborhood.

 

What is your favorite nighttime hangout?
Varka in Ramsey. It has a very cool Mediterranean vibe. Great place for date night or for a GNO. Not to mention they have fantastic cocktails.

What is your favorite New Jersey downtown district? 
Ridgewood is my favorite downtown district. It has a little bit of everything. I love the sense of community, the people, and how pretty it looks.

 

How has COVID-19 affected your business?
Now that we are home, people have been focusing on cleaning out their closets, so I have been able to help them to do this virtually. However, being able to advise my clients on what to wear for certain occasions, shopping for them and coming to their house to get them ready for an event is sadly now on hold. We are all just trying to get through this on the positive side. Hopefully sooner, rather than later, we will be able to get back on track. There’s only so much living in our sweatpants we can do!
