'Eye for the Beautiful'

You might not need a golden-yellow feather boa from Paris or an authentic Jackie O-style Chanel suit. But at 75 percent off, what the hell. These are the kind of bargain treasures you might find at Bellocchio, a new Royal Oak boutique just north of the Detroit Zoo on Woodward. Co-owners Carol Dowling and Carolyn Joseph have impressively collected couture (Prada, Gucci, Chanel) for chic socialites and bridge (Armani, Ann Klein, Ralph Lauren) for elegant professionals. And if name brands aren’t your style, there are surprising one-of-a-kind finds throughout the store. The store’s public grand opening is Friday, Aug. 4. They buy retail on consignment only. If you would like to become a client, schedule an appointment by calling 248-541-8025 or visit the store at 25519 Woodward.
