A fashion revival in Dixon: Sterling woman is dressed for success at woman’s clothing shop

A Sterling woman has revived her passion for fashion, and she’s doing it at her own women’s clothing store.

Jaime Shierry, 30, opened Revive Boutique in November. The store sells clothing from tops to bottoms, as well as footwear and accessories.

A self-proclaimed lover of fashion, Shierry has worked in the retail business for the past 10 years, honing her craft and sharing her love for fashion.

“I love shopping, clothing and dressing people,” she said. “It makes me feel good to help others feel and look good.”

Shierry has made her life about fashion, and after leaving the retail world, it wasn’t long before she jumped back in, this time as a business owner.

“I just couldn’t get away from the fashion world,” she said.

Early last year, Shierry decided to open up a shop, and location was important.

“I think this is a great location for a business,” she said.“I want to help grow the thriving, east side of Dixon.”

In addition to her retail storefront, Shierry’s also embraced social media and online shopping. Customers can check out new arrivals and order merchandise on her Facebook page and the store’s website, and she’s created a First Dibs Facebook group, where members get first whack at checking out and ordering new arrivals.

Shierry said a key part of the business was the inspiration for it all – herself.

“This store is me, from the product, to service and the storefront, I’m reviving myself through my business.”
