Saudi Arabia: Where The Recession Is A Real Slap in The Face

Have you ever spent so much money you wanted slap yourself? Well, now you don’t have to! Thanks to a Saudi Arabian court, if a wife spends too much of her man’s dough, he can put her in her place for her. What a savings!

Many of the local men, and now the courts, have been hitting wives hard because of how they choose to use cash. Saudi Arabian women like Princess Adila bint Abdullah, deputy chairperson of the National Family Safety Program, as well as international human rights groups, have complained about the seemingly court-sanctioned spike in domestic violence justice. If you offer Judge Hamad Al-Razine a penny for his thoughts, he’ll tell you that women are the ones doing the shopping, “but nobody puts even a fraction of blame on them.” The judge argues that men are just reacting to the financial sitch and someone has got to knock some sense into these women, right?

    If Tights Aren’t Constrictive Enough For You, Put Your Legs In Cages

    As more celebrities say “no” to pants, tights and leggings have become stand-alone articles of clothing. Now, they’re getting accessorized. A couple months ago, we checked out some cool chain-mail stockings, but they appeared to be possibly dangerous. Australian designer James Lillis, who makes the craziest, fanciest tights we’ve ever seen, has come up with a style called “Cages” that cost $120 a pair. The leggings feature gold or silver chains hooked onto them — so it looks like your legs are locked in a cage. You know how your legs feel so fabulous when you take off a pair of tights at the end of the day? They’d probably feel twice as free when you let them out of these leg Cages.

    Crave: The Week-End Book

    Originally published in 1924, The Week-End Book, edited by Francis Meynell, is a sort of almanac for free time that’s been re-printed with its original illustrations. Inside, you’ll find guides for identifying flowers, recipes, musical scores for folk songs, etiquette tips, and first aid instructions.

    Our favorite part is the “Qualities” chart on the back cover that catalogs your friends’ traits, like beauty, brains, and tact, and helps you remember why you keep hanging out with that always-late friend. In addition to its fun, throwback appeal, the book is lovely (and kinda sentimental) to keep on a side table. [$14, Amazon] Keep reading »
