Cesar Padilla of Cherry Boutique

What I really like about how Cesar Padilla of Cherry Boutique buys vintage, is that he does it with an eye to making the items relevant again. No 40′s music, no wishing for a bygone era to return, Cesar treats his treasures with a healthy amount of disrespect than strips away the preciousness and makes them feel like that could be an important part of your wardrobe again instead of “my gimmicky vintage top.”

    The next time you see Mr. Padilla, let him know that someone in Chicago thinks he’s absolutely gorgeous and well dressed

    Sorry SF. I think Elvis is the only guy who could get away with wearing that jacket in public.

    Love the jewelry he has on site.
    For some reason, this photo of him reminds me of an older Carson Daley gone to seed.

    Love the hairy chest. Everyone out here in Hollywood is lasering-it-off,like some kind of disease,or tumor or something……Yuck. I don’t really like dark chest hair when it turns white……but that’s what beard-dye is for.
