This past week we celebrated our TWO year anniversary at our Vestal location. We can’t believe how fast time has gone since moving from our shop in Greene. We’ve been blessed to be welcomed into the community with open arms. Since moving to Vestal we have grown in more ways than one. We have welcomed so many new brides into the DYF family and can’t wait to continue to grow.

Our team at DYF decided to put together a few questions for owner Shelly Howell. We asked her to reminisce on the thirteen years Dress Your Fancy has been in business. Shelly is excited for many more years of business. She is forever grateful for the community and customers who support her and Dress Your Fancy.

Question 1

How has your inventory changed from your boutique in Greene to the location in Vestal? About how many dresses were you moving with when you left Greene and how many do you have now at the Vestal location?

“We have increased the amount of inventory and added new lines to hit more of a diverse collection. We have probably doubled our inventory since our move. When we opened our doors, we had approximately twenty-five wedding gowns on the rack and only carried one bridal gown line. We now carry eleven different lines: Pronovias, Amsale, Hayley Paige, Blush by Hayley Paige, Lazaro, Pronovias Atelier, Maggie Sottero, Sottero and Midgley, Rebecca Ingraham, Willowby by Watters, and Nicole Milano. When we opened we carried Mon Cheri Bridal gowns.”

Question 2

How many years has Dress Your Fancy been in business? Has the business changed since making the move to Vestal?

“Dress Your Fancy has been open for thirteen years. Our change in location brought us an increase of business. With the increase in business we have been able to welcome new brides, mothers, bridesmaids, and everyone in between. We have been so thankful to welcome the new DYF family members our new location has brought us.”

Question 3

How many designer lines did you start with? How many do you have now?

“As aforementioned we opened our Greene boutique with approximately twenty-five dresses. We carried Mon Cheri Bridal gowns when we first opened. Over the years we picked up more designer lines and our collection continues to grow. Currently we carry eleven designer lines. We have been very fortunate to bring these designers to the area.”

Question 4

Are you glad you took on the move to Vestal? Do you miss your shop in Greene?

“We love our new location and the business it has brought us. However, we do miss our shop in Greene. When you start in a small town you build a tight knit family. We are fortunate that our DYF family has followed us to our new location, we appreciate the support.”
