    dressed up to the nines  :  If you're 'dressed to the nines' it doesn't mean that you have nine layers of clothes on! It means you are dressed very smartly or elaborately.http://www.lovatts.com.au/trivia/wordsandphrases/t...

    *施孝昌(中國時報-英文學習) 從頭到腳穿戴整齊,打扮得漂漂亮亮、光鮮亮麗,叫做”dressed up to the nines”。有人考證,說nines其實是eyes古字變音,但考古學就別管它了,反正妳要去約會,最好是dressed up to the nines;有時候要出風頭,dressed up to the nines也是個好方法,妳不見最近有位話題人物,每回出現都是dressed up to the nines麼!

    Are you going to a party or what? Why are you dressed up to the nines like that?

    你是去參加派對嗎?怎麼穿得那麼光鮮啊?http://www.mis.ncit.edu.tw/modules.php?name=Sectio... and sevens  :   This expression is commoner in the UK and Commonwealth countries than in the US. It can mean something that’s in a state of total confusion or disarray, or people who are collectively in a muddle or at loggerheads about how to deal with some situation. For example, a British newspaper article in 2002 reported that the Conservative opposition had accused the Government of being “at sixes and sevens” over what to do with the rail network.http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-six1.htm%E8%BE... at sixes and sevens :: 第37 期:: 中文: 亂七八糟 解釋: 一 ...at sixes and sevens ... the other players were at sixes and sevens. (球隊隊長摔斷了腿,其他隊員陷入了一片混亂。) the members couldn't come to an agreement.They were at sixes and sevens. (委員們不能達成一致意見。他們各持己見。) ...dafls.nuist.edu.cn/englishonline/ zhxl/chxx/ewords/eword37.htm
