If you live in the LA area and haven't already found trendy boutique Calleen Cordero, drop what you are doing and head in now. Located on stylish Beverly Boulevard, this boutique fills its shelves with rustic yet gorgeously feminine accessories ranging from footwear and handbags to cuffs and belts. With more than 1,000 square feet of merchandise, there is something to please every fashionista. As if that wasn't already enough to entice you, all of Calleen Cordero's accessories are handmade close by in their North Hollywood factory.
Calleen Cordero has been a shoe connoisseur since she was fifteen years old and started working in a high-end shoe boutique in Northern California as a sales assistant. Her passion for shoes led her to become the boutique's top sales assistant and by the time she was just sixteen years old, she was traveling to Europe working as a full-time buyer for the store. After moving up the ranks into marketing and sales she worked with many noted footwear designers, finally starting her own business in 2001 with the goal of bringing high fashion luxury goods to the US. For the past ten years her designs have beautifully showcased her down-to-earth vibe married with handcrafted glamour.
This mantra to bring the art of Old World craft to modern day American products is executed through the careful production and design of each quality item, starting from the ground up, literally! The base of all Calleen Cordero shoes begins with plywood from sustainable forests and is then topped off with orthopedic foam and hand-fitted design to ensure both comfort and style. The uppers of her shoes are made of leather and pure metal, satisfying purist and edgy tastes alike. We have to ask ourselves, could this boutique get any cooler?
As for the accessories, the same craftsmanship and authenticity are evident in the style and utility of each piece. Adorned with rustic metals and supple leathers, you will always find the same attention to detail and style in all handbags, belts, and jewelry as you do in her extensive shoe collection.
Calleen Cordero shoe and handbag prices start at $300 and her jewelry starts at an unbeatable $100. Looking for discounts and sales?
