The Fellas

Here are a couple of styles the men wore with the ankara.  There were actually quite a few different styles which were nice, but I couldn't capture them all. 

Loved his embroidery and beads!

People are becoming more creative with ankara. Here a guest used it to make a bow tie and pocket square...which I absolutely love! Simple and straight to the point.

Should Women Be Allowed to Drive in Saudi Arabia?

Manal al-Sharif was jailed for nine days in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia for posting a video of herself breaking the law by driving her black SUV in the country. Thereafter, people all around the world took to social media to voice their various opinions. Government censor did not quash the debate which arose- mostly in Ms. Sharif's defense- as it has in the past. 

Read more about the issue here at the New York Times

and watch the video here on YouTube.



What do you think...should women have the right to drive [even in a country which forbids it]?
When is enough enough?
