OK, it’s been a while — and you knew it was coming eventually. No, my Anglophilia hasn’t quite abated… I’m just doing a better job of not constantly talking about London! It’s hard to forget about my favorite city when I have friends like The Magnificent Stacy sending me links to stuff that further fuels my obsession. Like, say, these earrings from ASOS, a British online fashion store.
I like looking at things in pounds — mostly because I’m terrible at math, and I sort of, um, “guess-timate” how much items cost without actually figuring it out.
Cue ASOS’s currency exchange function. My adorable Union Jack embroidered stud earrings, which are on sale for £4.25, come out to $7.27 US. Still not bad, not bad at all . . . but I like imagining they’re around $4 better! Meh, I’m going to break down and buy them.
Other British goodies catching my attention right now? Let’s pop over to Etsy, my absolute favorite guilty pleasure, shall we?
