Giveaway Winner: Fashion A-Z

Hi, guys!  I know you’ve been ANXIOUSLY awaiting the announcement of the winner for my Fashion A-Z giveaway, so here goes!

The winner is…

#71….

…Angela of Bonne Chance!  If you haven’t seen her lovely blog before, hop on over!  She’s currently making bridesmaid dresses for her wedding using Christine Haynes’ Derby Dress pattern— cute, non?

Now, for all your perverts curious kitties out there who wanted to know more about the origin of jockstraps, read on!

The term may be derived either from the slang use of the word “jock”, meaning [dude appendage], or a shortening of the term “jockey strap”, a similar garment worn by bicycle jockeys (riders) in the US from the mid 1870s, initially while navigating the cobbled (and therefore bumpy) streets of Boston.

So there you have it!

Thanks again to Laurence King for letting me give away a book!  Hope you enjoy it, Angela!
