The Spell of Cose Belle

Fredericksburg, Virginia's Old Town suffers no lack of historical enchantment. Cose Belle only deepens the spell that the district naturally casts upon its unsuspecting visitors. This small women's boutique brings lesser-known European designer fashion to a place best known for early American history and the University of Mary Washington.
Everyone this side of the Atlantic has heard of Prada and Gucci. But what about beautiful designer clothes you can actually afford? Look up Cristina Gavioli, Gabrielle Parker, and AB-Nahlik for a glimpse into the sort of timeless elegance that graces the boutique. Cose Belle is the perfect place, for example, to buy a black sweater that will stylishly last you the next decade (or until it finally wears out.) It is the same place where you can find the velvet clutch you want to one day give your granddaughter. Whether you're in the mood for the wearable works of Italian, English, French, or even Polish designers, Cose Belle carries a variety of carefully curated clothing and accessories.
For a dose of Old World magic and shopping novelty, try Cose Belle. You'll need a break after visiting Kenmore Planation and the James Monroe Museum, anyway.
