A lifestyle boutique.

What does that mean?

Better Together (10 of 14)

It means personalizing fashion; a shopping experience that goes beyond the point of sale and draws you in to style-forward DIY classes and getting to know you. At the roots of Better Together is a labor-of-love family owned venture seeking to build community.

Owner Stacie LaGreca has envisioned this dream of a store for many years and finally made the leap this spring. The grand opening was this past Tuesday. The store is peppered with mementoes from her grandfather’s home, welded pieces made by her son, and a surplus of step-daughter Cassie’s artistic flair. As I thumbed through the racks I found Stacie’s choices in apparel and accessories to be excellent: feminine and edgy with a youthful vibe. And a great mix of fun and sexy underpinnings! Great boots and eclectic jewelry are also on hand. Lovely perfumes and creams round out the inventory of affordably priced items.

Cassie LaGreca is the lead consultant for the boutique. While she’s not busy growing her event planning business Better To Gather, she is Better Together’s lead consultant, conducting classes befitting the DIY revolution. Fresh from Chicago working in the events and design industries, she brings with her a library of fabulous books from which to pull entertaining and beautiful projects from.

The back-room events space can hold up to ten crafty people. It was designed to be intimate in the hopes that meeting new people and learning new things would be less intimidating. Cassie also offers private sessions to help you create whatever projects you might be interested in. Maybe you’d like to turn a favorite photo into a duvet cover, add some pizazz to your current wardrobe, or beautify a corner of your home. All doable.
