Why I’m Obsessed with Vintage:
1. To quote Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashions fade but style is eternal”. And vintage never goes out of style.
2. Because each piece is unique and tells the story of the true “You”.
3. Because you have to know enough about fashion to know what you’re looking for, and not just be spoon-fed a trend.
4. Because it costs a tenth of what the big designers who copy it does.
5. The thrill of the hunt.
For all of these reasons and more, check out the new Cheeky Vintage store on designersocial and find your accessory-soulmate from eras past.
Oh the musicality!
Dave Schneider had always been able to carry his classic 1965 Gibson ES-335 guitar onto the plane with him before.
But for some undisclosed reason, employees of Delta Airlines told him he would have to check it- even after he offered to buy the instrument its own seat!
There are no words for how devastated the guitarist was when he found this!
Ch-ch-check out the video to see the estimated 00 worth of damage done to the priceless instrument by a loading dock service elevator!
Music aficionados take heed- what you’re about to see is pretty gruesome!
Only after Dave’s story started to go viral did Delta Airlines finally return his calls and e-mails in an attempt to be reimbursed.
Of course, some things can never be replaced. Oh, we have to look away!
The face of an angel!

She’s turning into a red carpet pro!
After gleaming in gold at the Life of Pi premiere last Sunday, Freida Pinto ravished us in red at the One Night To Change Lives charity gala in Dubai on Friday.
Looking absolutely striking in a satin vintage Valentino strapless gown with trumpet hem, the 28-year-old actress easily grabbed the attention of everyone there!
She accessorized with a Roger Vivier clutch, and styled her dark hair into a simple updo with wispy bangs.

Show the world what you’ve got, Kim!
Kim Kardashian put the girls on display than posted the (above) pic to her Instagram account – you know, because why not??
Posing seductively for a vintage photo shoot, Kim wrote “Nighty night” next to a pic of her wearing a bra and some pearls.
If that’s what she wears to bed, then Kanye must be a happy man!
In another photo, she is seen wearing nothing but an oversized fur (below) with her hair teased like a ’60s pinup model.
Her sexy ‘do was styled by famed hairstylist Chris McMillan, who recently gave Miley her blonde locks.
As always, Kim looks gorgeous and we welcome even MORE of her twitpics, believe it or not!!
