A Letter From Sarah and Arlette: The Owners of Bella Mia

We are very excited to announce that August marks our 15th year as Bella Mia LLC!

Our time as a business in this community is a testament to the amazing support of those who choose to shop small and keep us going! Thank you! Our gratitude extends beyond just your financial support but also to a personal level in that you’ve shared who you are, challenged us in ways that have made us grow and learn and always made Bella Mia feel like a part of the heart of Plymouth. 

We are a store that seeks to connect with others through fashion and through the years we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to do this together and alongside the phenomenal individuals that make up our staff. While on the surface our common denominator might be a love of style, underneath we all have a passion  to genuinely connect with you- the customer.

We are humbled and thankful—You are the reason we do this! 

Just a small token on our appreciation - the remainder of August we are offering 15% off* storewide for all our guests. We are honored you have made us your neighborhood boutique for a decade and a half and look forward to more years of friendship and shopping together.

See you in stores soon!
xoxo,
Sarah & Arlette Stobbe

Let's Swap; A Community Clothing Event

You know that top in your closet that doesn't fit right? Or that dress you never wear anymore? Those items can finally be put to good use again in another woman's closet. It's time to cleanse your closet of the old and make way for something new. Bring your gently used, unwanted items to Bella Mia Boutique's first clothing swap on Sunday, August 12 from 6pm-8pm. Join other local women for this community wide clothing swap in the parking lot behind Bella Mia!

Never been to a clothing swap? No worries- we have the deets!

  • Bring at least three but no more than fifteen gently preloved items of women's clothing and accessories. That's right- clear out not only your clothing but also your jewelry, purses, hats, scarves, and shoes! 
  • No name brand? No problem! We don't discriminate but we do ask that the items have no signs of major wear (holes, stains, pulls, etc.)
  • For every item you bring, you'll receive a ticket to "purchase" other items! SO- you'll start with a minimum of three tickets and a maximum of fifteen tickets. Yes- that's right, you have the chance to get up to fifteen new to you items!

Five reasons to swap:

  1. It's economical! Swapping clothes is an easy way to stay on budget.
  2. That feeling you get when you clean our your closet and feel FRESH.
  3. Bring your girlfriends to make it a free and fun girls night out!
  4. You just might find a treasured piece that you'll wear way more than those old jeans that don't even fit you anymore. #realtalk
  5. Any items that are leftover, we'll donate to an awesome charity FOR YOU! One less thing on the to do list. #winwin

Now that you're convinced- we'll see you there!

Tell a friend!
August 12, 2018
from 6pm to 8pm
in the parking lot directly behind Bella Mia,
448 Forest Ave. Plymouth, MI 48170

Where To Donate Your Prom Dress: Donating to Hope Closet

You've spent the past few months thinking about prom: what dress you're going to wear, what hairstyle will look best, and of course bringing it all together with shoes and jewelry! Now you went to prom, took countless photos, had a blast, and made memories you'll never forget. After an #epic prom night, you come home to slip off your dress, take off your makeup, and throw your accessories on that one chair. A few weeks past by and you're wondering: what do I do with my prom dress now?

Donate Your Prom Dress

The ultimate way to pass on your great prom experience, is to let someone else have an amazing experience just like you did! Hope Closet allows young women in the metro-Detroit area to attend high school dances feeling as confident and special as you did without financial limitations. Hope Closet hosts a one week "Prom Pop-Up Shop" run entirely on volunteers and donated items and dresses.

Hope Closet's ultimate goal is to offset financial costs to local families and provide role models for young women who later want the same opportunity to pay it forward with their volunteerism. For more information on Hope Closet, their volunteer program, and next pop up shoppe visit hopecloset.org.
