Located on South Lake Avenue, Angelo is a high-end shoe and purse boutique. We’re talking expensive (as in Yelp gave it a $$$$ price tag, which means “ultra high-end.”) Powerhouse designers include Fendi, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Celine, just to name a few. Yes, merchandise ranges from the high hundreds into the thousands. (Take that Beverly Hills.) And fear not that these are knockoffs–this boutique is an authorized dealer. In other words, you truly do get what you pay for.
Inside, Angelo is modern and simple in design. Sleek white shelves line the walls and display bags and shoes like art. Nothing is crammed together. Which gives me the impression that what’s being sold here is quality–not quantity. The bright white walls allow the beautiful colors and lines of the merchandise to pop. And in the center of the store sit three plush seats every boutique seems to own. They say, come in, sit down. Unwind on luxe comfort while you spend thousands of dollars.
What’s even more of a draw is the store’s owner, Shant. Sorry to those who enjoy snooty and pretentious. Shoppers describe him as humble and warm, despite his accomplishments. (He even travels to Italy himself to buy the shoes.) It’s no wonder he’s received on every Yelp review five out of five stars. But don’t take my word for it. Come in and see for yourself. Angelo’s doesn’t have a website, but they are at 415 S. Lake Avenue and their phone number is 626-795-3371.
Sad news, folks — after ten years in Pasadena, Angelo is closing its doors due to slow sales. But, take heart! This mouth-watering selection can still be found at 120 N Brand in Glendale.
