Alexander McQueen, Proenza Schoeler, Yves Saint Laurent, Fendi and Chanel are only a few of the designer labels you'll find on the racks and shelves at new boutique The Little Bird, located in the Galleria area.
After four years of success in Aspen and frequent patronage by numerous visiting Houstonians, owner Keele Loyd decided to expand, choosing the Bayou City as The Little Bird's second home. The shop seeks to redefine consignment and resale by combining new and vintage apparel and accessories for the chic, savvy customer who values high quality.

The boutique will host a grand opening event on October 20 from 5 to 8 p.m. where special guest designers from New York and Aspen will be making appearances. In a phone conversation, Keele told us, "It will be an open house at the shop, a launch party to introduce the store to Houston."
The boutique specializes in high-end luxury goods, with new items arriving daily from domestic and international clients, and the shop uses a careful system of selection when it comes to both new and vintage clothing.
The spacious, open interior of the Galleria-area boutique was inspired by the flagship in Aspen as well as Loyd's excursions to glamorous San Tropez in the French Riviera, and it certainly is a place where vintage lives: The displays are made from retro, distressed and repurposed items found in antique shops along Westheimer and in The Heights. Just as each piece of clothing in the shop tells a story, the furnishings themselves have a history.
The Little Bird, located at 1735 Post Oak Boulevard, is open Monday through Saturday from 10 to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11-6 p.m. For more information, visit The Little Bird online.
