OC BOUTIQUE SHOPPING: Bellabacci - Laguna Beach

Bellabacci Boutique - An Accessory to Love!

Review by: Erin

Bellabacci means "Beautiful Kisses" in Italian, and whether you speak the language or not, you'll feel the jewelry love overflowing in this Laguna Beach Boutique. Don't come looking for subtle or dainty, Bellabacci is home to the strikingly bold and brilliant world of rings, headbands, handbags, necklaces, bracelets and earrings! From watches to clothing, the amount of inventory that moves through Bellabacci is shocking when you see how small the store is, but don't let the small size fool you ;) Coupled with an international website, Bellabacci is the number one retailer for a majority of their famous designer lines. What does this mean for you...stop by frequently because 1 - they are the first to get the newest styles, often before any other boutique, and 2 - they sell out quickly!

Looking to stand out in the fashion landscape? Bellabacci is known for their super abundance of rebelliously romantic and ornate glittery inventions from the creative mind of Tarina Tarantino. Be sure to find jewelry, accessories and handbags from the flamboyant mistress of the fashion, Betsy Johnson. Betsey Johnson's ability to combine the outrageous with frilly femininity mixed with Bellabacci's numerous choices will no doubt have you playing adult "dress up".

A recent jewelry love of fashion magazines like ELLE, Lucky, InStyle and Vanity Fair, Elizabeth Cole signature pieces are "meant to inspire the golden tigress within". With gold chains, charms, antique zodiac and money coin combinations... I feel in love with this jewelry line, perfect for wearing individually or layering.

One of the "perks" of boutiquing (something you rarely find in chain retail locations), is you get to hear straight from the owner the intricate details of each line and interesting info about the designers. Owners Frank and Kelly Mancini have an eye for picking the hottest designs and love to share the experience with their clients. Bellabacci also carries Steve Madden handbags and clutches, Spanx under garments, Rachel Weissman silk scarf head bands, Custo Barcelona and Ed Hardy.
