The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.



The latest Chanel ad: Embellishing the arm and pockets of a jacket with pearl beads, chains, ribbons.

  • (Pair patterend leggings with patterend tights.)

“Carry your clutch as jewellery; Adorn with clusters of pin badges and brooches.”

They even had a blazer customizing mini-tutorial by Erdem Moralioglu, I wish I had a scanner to go crazy on.

With Natalia Vodianova buck nude on the cover, I don’t even have to encourage anyone to go buy a copy – I’m sure your boyfriends will get them for you.
