Around Our Town: Chick & Chica

A few days ago, Brandi and I stumbled across my new favorite place in all of Houston, Chick & Chica. I think they opened right before the holiday season, but I never knew they were there. As soon as we walked in I was in a major daze. Bright colors, fantastic style, interesting details... My first thought was "I need to interview the owner of this place because I'm certain I will love them," I turned to Brandi to tell her to snap some pictures, but she was already reaching for the camera. We spent a long time just making the rounds, checking out every inch of the place. Lupe, the co-owner quickly approached us and struck up conversation. She was so warm and helpful, it was like chatting it up with an old pal. Well, I could ooze on for days over this BEAUTIFUL shop, but I'll let you see for yourself.

I love the industrial details scattered throughout this shop! She built this place from nothing.

We both treated ourselves to something wonderful. I had to get something for a wedding shower this weekend anyway ;) If you are a Houstonian, please check out this shop. Shop local. 3710 Main St. Houston TX 77002.  It's way too good to pass up! If you are not a Houstonian, you can still "like" them on Facebook.

Thanks Chick & Chica for adding a touch of awesome to Houston! The Bueno girls will be visiting again soon.

P.S. the photo's don't do this place justice. It's so cool and vibrant and you get that excited feeling when you step in.
