Yesterday I got to visit the acclaimed Cheeky Vintage boutique, here, in Houston. As they were throwing a bash for their 9th birthday I figured it would be a great day to see the space. It was everything I imagined and more. As soon as I entered, I was greeted with champagne by their friendly staff, along with cupcakes and nibbles, and walls that were lined with bright and colorful pieces I couldn't wait to get my hands on. I immediately felt as if I were a little girl, lucky enough to raid my mother or grandmother's closet. Every nook and cranny was filled with hats, bags, and shoes that gave each of the five rooms the perfect personal touch. This is the kind of place you could spend hours just rummaging through every single item until you find that gem that speaks to you... or perhaps a few gems, actually. From Oscar de la Renta and Valentino to their own Cheeky Vintage line this place will win you over if you've never considered yourself a "vintage type of girl." I can't wait to go back and bring some of my own clients in so I can share the goodness.

Thanks to Julie, Houstonians can now learn more about how Shop With Val got its start and how I'm bringing the best of NYC to Texas. Check out my interview here. Thanks, Julie!
