Visit Dana Point: For those who don’t know about your business, would you please describe who you are and what you offer?

Kim: From basic essentials to statement pieces, Belle Boutique offers fashion forward looks for the office, a night-out with the girls, to a casual Sunday morning at home and everything in between.

Visit Dana Point: Can you talk about when you decided to start your own business and what inspired you?

Kim: I was always interested in fashion and styling my friends and family. I decided to take my passion and turn it into my profession. It’s been a long journey and it has been a lot of work to get to where we are today. Back in 2010, Belle Boutique OC began as a pop up clothing boutique bringing trend setting fashion to local Orange County communities through school functions, church events and gym clothing shops. Through the years our customer relationships continued to grow which led us to expanding in a co/op retail partnership with Seaside Gallery and Goods in Newport Beach. 

In 2019, it was time to open our first location. Belle Boutique OC officially opened its doors in Rancho Santa Margarita. After much success we opened two more locations in 2022, Ladera Ranch and Dana Point. 

After decades of doing trunk shows and setting up pop up shops, Kim Belle realized her dream of opening her first brick and mortar women’s clothing boutique; Belle boutique in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

In 2019, after decades working in the fashion industry, Kim Tejeda was leaving behind a career in corporate retail and relocating from Ohio to California.

If you believe in fate (which Kim & Kim most certainly do!) their worlds were about to come together, and this union would be the beginning of a friendship that feels more like sisterhood, a working relationship that has grown into a beautiful partnership.

The 2 Kim’s, or Kim 1 and Kim 2 as their clients fondly refer to them as, not only share a love of fashion, but they also share a mutual love for French Bulldogs and between the two Kim’s are three happy Frenchie’s; Hugo, Louis and Murphy. In fact, when they decided to expand Belle boutique from one store to three, these pups were the inspiration for Belle Boutique’s signature pink Frenchie neon signs found inside the Ladera Ranch and Dana Point locations.

Since their first chance encounter back in 2019 to now, Kim 1 & Kim 2 have grown Belle Boutique into three beautiful stores along with an online store where clients can complete their wardrobes with everything from the latest trends to everyday essentials.

Visit Dana Point: What are the biggest rewards as a business owner? Or one of your proudest moments?

Kim: I really appreciate my customers and the relationships I’ve built. I have a loyal client base and strong relationships which keep me going everyday! Opening 3 locations has definitely become one of my milestones. Additionally we will be launching online in the coming weeks, hopefully by the time this article gets published so you can start shopping online! One more thing… you may see some local OC Housewives shopping at our stores and maybe catch our store on the next season of their reality show!

Visit Dana Point: Where do you see your business in the future?

Kim: As we expand online and continue to grow in the digital space through reality stars and influencers we are really hopeful to grow audiences across the USA through this new adventure. We want to see more success for our store and online!

Visit Dana Point: When you’re not working, what is your favorite thing to do in Dana Point?

Kim: In our spare time we enjoy visiting the Dana Point Harbor and spending time dining at the restaurants or walking around the harbor with a cup of coffee and our frenchies!

Visit Dana Point: Is there anything else you would like to include or share?

Kim: We are excited to be a part of the Dana Point community and look forward to partnering with local businesses for future events. Additionally, we want to thank our existing and new customers. Thank you for your support and come see what new styles we have for spring!
