An audience of about one hundred joined Terri Cook on Sunday, August 8, to help her celebrate her boutique’s seventh anniversary. The visitors were treated to an array of vendors, food trucks and, above all, a fashion show featuring some of the items that Simply D’Vine stocks.
Cook opened Simply D’Vine Boutique in August 2014 and brought to life an idea she had been nurturing for 19 years – a stylish boutique that offers something for every pocketbook and a variety of teastes.
During a tour of the boutique – located in the Marketplace West Shops, 3606 W. Sylvania Avenue – Cook directs customers past shelves containing styles she labels “Young at Heart” to “Moderately Chic” to “Sophisticated” – something for every whim. There is also a “Curvaceous” rack for the plus-sized customer.
In addition to girls and women’s clothing, Cook also carries men’s apparel – shirts, socks and ties. Men’s suits are available to order. It’s a small tidy shop with an abundance of goods.
The anniversary celebration however was anything but small. Cook and her staff took over much of the parking lot of the Marketplace, on a bright, sunny day for the event with the catwalk for the fashion show extending out of the doorway of the shop.
A half dozen models, including Cook herself, displayed gowns, sweaters – an assortment of formal and informal fashions along with the accessories that the boutique also has on hand.
