Years of living in Brooklyn walk past the eye-grabbing window display lineup of two mannequins dressed straight out of the Bratz dolls, which Lu Bella Boutique injects upon whoever considers stopping inside.

The first store opened in 2014 with a passion for fashion and the idea in mind because of her daughter led the owner to name the business after her two daughters in addition to five New York locations such as two in Brooklyn, one in Queens, one in Staten Island, and one in Massapequa Park.

On the twentieth day of June 2021, the second Lu Bella Boutique in Mill Basin Brooklyn to enter inside a spacious Barbie pink interior sitting on a purple sofa, maskless face-to-face with Lu Bella Boutique owner Kim Capone Gallagher voiced about reopening the store since the COVID-19 lockdown.

Everyone had to come in with a mask. Very grateful for the loyal customers who kept me in business through the pandemic. And hoping and praying this is behind us.

When Lu Bella Boutique first reopened after a year, the clientele was fearful of coming inside the stores and contracting Covid, but customers were more reluctant when Lu Bella Boutique first opened the dressing rooms. Nothing of the ordinary was different, so clientele entered the boutique again to still welcome Capone-Gallagher with hugs and kisses as if there wasn’t a pandemic.

Within appreciation, Capone-Gallagher expressed about all the local businesses and values the clientele who kept Lu Bella Boutique’s head above water during the pandemic.
