Idiom Magic : A CLOTHESHORSE 曬衣架;講究衣著的人

【明報專訊】While a clotheshorse (from the words clothes + horse) is a name given to a wood or metal frame used to dry clothing, the meaning we are looking at here is when it describes someone who dresses exceptionally well in a very fashionable (時尚的) manner. Nellie, for instance (pictured here) must spend half her salary (薪金) on new clothing. "I know people call me a clotheshorse, but I'm the kind who just can't resist (抗拒) a sale," she explained. Nellie's not alone. My wife's a clotheshorse too!
