You look through the recently frosted pink-trim windows, at the dim lit shop floor; to see some of the most beautiful vintage clothing. Curious, you step into the fuchsia carpeted floor, soft, on your weary boots. The rustle of taffeta and the shimmer of silk whistles in your ear as you make your way to the front of the shop, where two young men are tending the shop. Feel free to make any inquiries regarding any specific clothes. You may access our catalogue here!
She thought getting herself something nice to wear on dates with Eric would be fun...and she never passed up an opportunity to shop for clothes, so she'd find herself looking through the clothes for anything new or especially flattering.

She hoped some shopping would distract her from her family's current predicament, and she was right. Between deciding what was pretty and what wasn't, trying to find her size in clothes she did like, and trying it all out, she was pretty distracted from everything.

She looks up, realizing she was being talked to, and smiles politely when she sees the brunette. She nods her head. "Yeah, it's like two or three aisles down," she says, pointing her thumb towards the left.

"I've planned my wedding, gone as far as designing my ideal dress, but I haven't actually gone wedding dress trying," she answers. "But... I don't... think that'll be much of an issue, either? If... my parents pitch in, anyways," she shrugs.
She'd shake her head. "The comment wasn't about the money...it was noting that you've never done it, and you should. It's a blast, especially if the right friends go with you." She'd pause. "Though if you're seriously planning your wedding anyway, you're probably going dress shopping soon enough anyway I would imagine."

"My parents... are very picky about who I affiliate myself with," she says, slowly, as she tries to pick the correct words. She is, after all, interacting with a stranger. "I'm usually very mindful about that... and just save myself the trouble of risking their disapproval and probably hurt and angry emotions of the people they dislike."

"Our relationship is strained," she says, and bites her lipstick-coated lip. "It's... too much baggage to unload in the middle of a shop," she says, trying to ease her way out of that conversation topic. Hopefully she'd get the hint.
She'd nod. "Yeah...I understand parental drama and we don't know each other. I'm sure the last thing you want is to talk to some random girl about it." She'd smile. "Well...if you ever want someone to go wedding dress shopping with, let me know."

"Even though you don't know me?" she asks, sounding and looking thoroughly surprised. "I'm Evangeline, by the way," she adds. If she unloaded just a little bit on her, she figured it was most appropriate to introduce herself.
She'd nod and offer her hand. "Melinda." She'd pause to shake. "...and sure why not? It's something you shouldn't do alone since even with mirrors it's hard to determine if a dress like that makes your butt look big." She'd grin, clearly joking...at least partially. "Besides, it's more fun with a good bottle of wine and nobody should drink alone unless they choose to."

She extends her own, shaking Melinda's hand with a small smile. Though she was reluctant to push for drinks or something, she was sure it'd be nice meeting with her again. "That's true," she agrees, laughing. "I might just take you up on that offer eventually, Melinda."

She's looking around the store, wanting nothing more than to buy new outfits. She needs more money, though. She can't afford anything right now, unfortunately, and it seems that the store owner knows that, because she's been giving an oblivious Raelynn the stink eye for the past five or so minutes.
