Well, I guess you thought we had completely forgotten about our blog. Oh no! We could never do that. 2016 has been, well to say the least, CRAZY! We wanted to give a quick recap of what our year has been like, and what we are DREAMING about in 2017.
2 of the biggest things to happen to our ShopbellaC Family happened in 2016. Owner, Laura Walker, and her family welcomed the newest addition to their family. Baby Chamberlain was born in May, and the Walker family has never been the same.
Big Brother Beckham welcoming his Little Brother, Chamberlain, into the world.
Momma Laura & Baby C!
Happy New Year from Laura, David, Beckham, & Chamberlain.
So along with a new baby, the ShopbellaC Family also gained a new man in our lives. Owner, Cristie Taylor, got married to the love of her life, Garrett, in May as well. Yes, I know isn’t that a whirlwind for a month and a year!!
With all the new additions, our whirlwind of a summer didn’t stop there. Cristie and Garrett made the move from Searcy, Arkansas to Dallas, Texas to join Laura, David, Beckham & Chamberlain. So now both of the original Merritt Sisters were back in the same town.
2016 was an amazing time in our personal lives, but and even better time for our company. We learned so many fun, new ways to reach out to YOU, our customers, and updated our site to make shopping even more enjoyable!
2017 is just around the corner and there are a few things were definitely want to achieve.

As the year is winding down, we just wanted to say, “THANK YOU!” None of this would even be possible without you. Each and every day you help make our dreams a reality, and we truly are grateful for all of the love and support you give our business. We pray each and every day that God will continue to bless our company, and that HIS blessings will be shown through us. Happy New Year to our ShopbellaC Customers!! May 2017 be the best year yet!

There is no feeling quite like being well dressed! The only thing that makes you feel even BETTER about being well dressed is when you got an incredible deal on your outfit.

It’s so hard to stay up-to-date with all of the latest trends, while still being a total boss babe. Our new fall basics are starting at $26.75! We even have some AMAZING fall dresses for prices as low as $39.99, which makes us want them all even more.

So, don’t stress about not being able to keep up with the celebs this fall, because we have you totally covered! Hurry over and buy your favorite chic look NOW!!!
What is it about shoes that us girls just CANNOT get enough of?! We find ourselves drawn to shoes almost as much as we’re drawn to desserts, and that is a lot! The fun part about shoes is that they totally complete your outfit and distinguish whether you want to dress up or down. If you throw a pair of heels with an outfit, it can transform your entire look and make you feel like you can conquer the world!
If you’re a shoe lover, you are obviously over the moon about the transition into boot weather. Here at ShopBellaC, we can’t help but want to buy every single pair that comes into the store! Check out our “Cut To The Chase Black Booties” for an easy dressy vibe and our “Nashville Native Booties” for an everyday wear. Everyone needs a couple of new pairs of booties to kick off the fall season!
While you’re pulling all of your fall clothes out of the attic, don’t forget to shop our new arrivals to spruce up your wardrobe! We are keeping everything fresh and fun to help this “What do I wear?” time of year!
Can we just say how AWESOME all of you Moms are?! Between chasing babies and feeding kids, how do y’all find the time to still look fab? If you need a little pick-me-up this week, we have just what you need to treat yourself. After all, you totally deserve it!

Moms have this incredible selfless way about them that constantly has them buying things for everyone else, and not themselves. Well, today Mom, you deserve to TREAT YOUR SELF. Whether it be a new coffee mug that is saying exactly how you feel that day, or a beautiful new journal to write down all the memories of your sweet babies you don't want to forget. Why not go a step further, and finally buy that new pair of booties you can wear not only to the playground, but also to lunch with the girls. Whatever it may be, you deserve it because you do everything for everyone. Now, it is time for you to take care of YOU!
Whether you are a Mom, or you just want to surprise a Mom that is so dear to your heart, check out our gifts now! With school starting back up, we know how hard it is to get everything done. We don’t need to wait until Mother’s Day to celebrate the beautiful women that we love! Love you Mom!
It’s always the first thing that comes after the “Omg! He asked me out!” phase, when you all of a sudden realize that you have NOTHING to wear. If that’s you, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. When it comes to date nights, outfit selection is totally key! We’re here to help you choose an outfit that will make him fall in love.
The most important factor in choosing the perfect date night look is to base it around where you will be going. If you’re going somewhere fancy, a sleek romper like our “The Night Life Romper” is absolutely stunning! If you have a more casual date to the movies, bowling, or miniature golf, you might consider giving off a chill vibe with our “Edge of Reason Bullhead Top” paired with our “Distress Me Out Skinny Jean”. Top off your perfect outfit with a pair of our stellar shoes and a glitzy necklace, and you will have him asking you on another date before this one has even ended!
Don’t forget that no matter where he is taking you, he chose to take YOU! You’ve already caught his eye, now you just have to keep his attention and be yourself. Start picking out your outfit now before the weekend sneaks up on you!

From Instagram to Twitter to Pinterest, and from Facebook to Snapchat, ShopbellaC is all over the web! We love being able to connect with our customers by sharing our favorite outfits, highlighting chic accessories, and of course informing everyone when a SALE is going on! More than just us being able to share these things with them, we also are incredibly grateful to receive feedback from customers so that we can see what they love and how we can make every aspect of ShopbellaC better.
Our most recent addition to social media has been our Snapchat account, which we use for current happenings inside our warehouse and in our storefront!

As much as we LOVE “The Bachelor”, we LOVE our girl Rachel Tchen even more! It was such a wonderful time catching up with our friend and previous co-worker to ask her some questions about her time in the Bachelor Mansion. For those of you who have always wondered what really goes on behind the scenes of the love fest, here are the answers, given directly from Rachel Tchen!
What is there to do in the mansion besides lay by the pool and receive roses?
Rachel Tchen: “EAT! Haha that was really my favorite part. But during the day, they have you do some interviews which can take up quite some time in the day. And a lot of what isn't aired is when we play silly games and have lots of time to get to know the girls so well. That's why the majority of us come out so close because we had so much time to share about ourselves.”
How well do you know the owners of Shop Bella C?
Rachel Tchen: “I LOVE the owners of SBC! I've become so close with Cristie and Laura throughout the years. First being introduced by my best friend, also their cousin, and then having the opportunity to work at the store as their employee!”
What were the rose ceremonies like and how often do you see Chris Harrison?
Rachel Tchen: “They were long, miserable, and silent. We would stand there in our heels for a few hours waiting to hear our name called. Everyone is always tense and especially if you don't have a rose then you start panicking as each rose gets handed out. We didn’t see Chris often, only when he brought in the date cards, made toasts and announced the final rose.. Just in case someone doesn't notice that there is only one rose left.. Thanks for the help, Chris.”
Are you currently watching JoJo’s season? If so, who is your pick?
Rachel Tchen: “Of course! Gotta support my girl! I personally think that Jordan is a front runner because he has a slick and suave feel to him, he's also sweet.”
To say that we are incredibly proud of Rachel is an understatement. We supported her on the show, and we support her after as she continues her life and reaches goals she has set for herself! Keep checking in for more behind the scene exclusives!
