Bellacara is Old Town Alexandria's essence of comfort and elegance captured in a charming boutique specially designed to pamper the most discerning customer. The boutique's owners, Kimberly Putens a former lobbyist and management consultant and Angela Sitilides, a former prosecutor, had no previous experience in the beauty industry. It was their mutual frustration with department store beauty departments and mass beauty chains that inspired them to open the boutique. According to the pair, ?We were determined to open a boutique that housed all the most exciting bath, body, skin care, hair care, and cosmetic products under one roof?. Thanks to Kim and Angela, the hottest lines of beauty and lifestyle products-once so difficult to find-are now available in Northern Virginia. The care and attention that Kim and Angela devote to ensuring that Bellacara delivers an exclusive variety of only the very finest products is evident the minute you walk through the door. Not only do they offer the lines widely recognized as the best in the beauty business, they are continually searching out the latest and greatest (if not yet well-known) products. Careful editing has insured that the boutique retains only the best products. As singular as Bellacara is the shopping experience itself - the warmest, most friendly service personally offered by Kim, Angela, and devoted staff. They bring integrity, sincerity, imagination, and a passionate excitement to Bellacara. The knowledge and experience they share of every single item is the result of personal testing and use. They'll know exactly what works to achieve the result you're seeking. If you've been to Bellacara already, you're probably on a first name basis with the women there. If you haven't, they're waiting to share the Bellacara experience with you.
