Will fashion fanatics run circles around each other to get a hold of this oversized purse? Chanel sent a model down the runway for its Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Week wearing an enormous white quilted ‘purse,’ balanced artfully between two black hula hoops.
The bag itself, carried by a model in a swimsuit with the brand’s interlocking C logo, is constructed with the brand’s iconic quilted leather. Ideal for that wealthy matron who is weary of carrying a simple canvas tote to the beach or to the pool. The brand’s frantic spokespeople said they didn’t have a price for the oversized accessory -- or the silver-bubble jewelery that all the models wore.
While the circular bag may not be practical to shoppers, some predict that its concept is a design winner. “While this is pure fantasy, baby versions, with miniature circular straps, will surely fly off the shelves.”
Every submarine looks majestic and powerful when it surfaces and you see all of those sleek lines ridding themselves of water, but nothing takes our breath away quite like Tiiu’s rising body. Look at the way her back arches so her ass sits high, looking like a cross between Pac-Man and a juicy peach. Delicious.
We need to stop imagining this model is a submarine otherwise we’re going to slip into the same thinking habits we had as kids, and then we’ll be imagining that there are lots of little guys running around inside Tiiu to get ready for war and make big scary missiles come out of her nipples. We’ve tried to move past violent imagery in our old age.

Like a chunky cocktail ring, Michael Kors Gold The New Rose Edition eau de parfum makes a statement. Radiant Glamour. Undeniably feminine. The notes are luminous pink pepper with a deeply voluptuous bouquet of tuberose and a whisper of a creamy sandalwood.

So you love your muff! If you went to a half-decent convent school for girls, the nuns would have drummed into you the importance of sitting correctly to protect your modesty. Always wear clean panties, the advice went—you never knew when you would be run over by a bus!
Never mind saving your life; you’ve saved yourself instead the embarrassment of being wheeled into Emergency with soiled or smelly knickers! Except: We’ve gone from just clean panties, washing and douching our nether regions, to bush perfumes and hair dyes, vaginal tattoos (“vatoos”), tidying up our bikini lines and all manner—and gore—of vaginal titivations that would boggle the mind.
This isn’t a sense of humor failure; these are nuclear options for garlanding your muse, tending your “ladygarden,” pruning and trimming your pubic topiary.
