The ASK Dress Boutique Story

Karen Drew and Sarah DiGiovine are proud lifelong residents of the Joliet/Plainfield/Shorewood area.
When Karen’s daughter began high school and started attending school dances, she quickly realized there were very few options for teens and young women to find dresses for special occasions.  As friends, Karen and Sarah discussed this often and decided to begin making plans to open a dress boutique.  They were energized by a desire to provide the women in their local community a place where they could find the Perfect Dress for any occasion.  Soon, ASK Dress Boutique became a reality. ASK opened in January 2017.
As for how the name ASK Dress Boutique came about, it is an acronym for the names of Karen and Sarah’s family members.  A is for Allison, Andy & Aubrey, S is for Stacy, Steve, & Sarah, and K is for Karen. If you look closely at the logo, you can find the “hidden  P” in the right corner of the dress which stands for Paul.  Also, Sarah and Karen know that every girl hopes to get “asked” to the dance.  See, it all works out perfectly.
Sarah is a graduate of Plainfield Central High School and Prairie State College with a degree in Applied Science and Dental Hygiene.  She has been a resident of Shorewood since 2005 and is an active member of the Shorewood HUGS organization.
Karen is a graduate of Joliet Central High School and Northern Illinois University.  She worked in the social services field assisting disabled adults, which taught her to look past people’s differences, and in fact embrace the diversity, see people’s abilities, and always try to help a person fulfill their wants and needs.  Karen looks forward to using her skills to help you find the perfect dress you want!
