A couple of days ago I was in Marks & Spencer's and noticed that the exchange rate for the US dollar was more favourable than it has been for quite a while, at 1.5923 to the pound. Since I found out I'm going to Chicago I've been saving half of the money I earn at my Monday job (working at a friend's gallery), and it just so happened that I'd hit the total of £100 which, with a few extra pence found in the darkest corners of my purse, bought me 160 of the finest, crispest US$. I was really pleased about this since I hadn't gone in to buy currency and it was quite by chance that I noticed the exchange rate - clearly the dollar gods were smiling upon me and willing me to buy, buy, buy. These lovely bills are destined to be exchanged for a few goodies in Chicago and/or NYC!
On a completely different note, but with the link of Marks and Spencer's, I'm here to answer the cry that I heard in the comments section of my last post 'What are treggings?????'
So, you all know what jeggings are - the result of a love-in between a pair of jeans and a pair of leggings, a.k.a stretchy, tight-fitting denim-based leg coverings.Well, treggings are the love-child of a pair of trousers and a pair of leggings - i.e. stretchy, tight-fitting, non-denim based, leg coverings. Simple, non?
I really dislike the words jeggings and treggings; they sound ugly, don't you think? But what else could they be called? Jeanings? Trousings? Ick.
