Today is the day Tasha gets to try on items to see get ready to join the Display Ladies. Janeer is setting up to do hair and make up.
After she's done with the hair items, she moves over to the other table to start setting up make up. In walks Leera with a dress.
Janeer: That's good. That's a pretty dress. Did you make it?
Leera: No, it's off the rack. All of the items today are off the rack. I hope something fits and looks good on her.
Janeer: Me too. I'm so happy for Tasha.
Leera: Are you sure you should be laying out all your stuff right now? What if we have to regroup to find something that will work, you'll have set up for nothing.
Janeer: It's okay. I'd rather be prepared to work on her hair and make up if something is selected today. It won't take long to put it all back.
Leera brings out another dress and then checks what she has put on the shelves.
Leera: Maybe not, but I thought I'd put them up here anyway, just in case.
Janeer: Have you heard from Gio?
Leera: No, not yet, but she should be here any minute.
Janeer: She'd better be. This was her idea. I'm going to have a seat.
As soon as Janeer sits down, Giordana enters.
Leera: We're glad you made it.
Janeer: Yes, we're glad you made it, but you'll be glad you made it. I'd hate to have to remind you every day how you suggested this then dropped it in our laps.
Giordana (laughing): I know. I wouldn't do that. Besides, I can't wait to see what Tasha's going to wear and how you make her up.
Janeer: Well, come on over and have a seat by me to enjoy the fashion show.
Janeer moves over so Giordana can set her cup down on the table and be able to access it. The trio chats for a few minutes and then Tasha arrives.
Leera (smiling): Hi, Tasha. We're thrilled to be able to help you get ready to join the display. We're here to make sure you look great.
Tasha: I'm so flattered you all are so willing to help me. I really appreciate it.
Giordana: You're going to look great, Tasha.
Janeer: We'll make sure you fit right in up there in the spotlight. I am happy for you.
Tasha: Thank you!
Leera: Let's get started. There are some items already in the fitting room and lined up. Please go put on the first dress and come back out.
Tasha: It's a pretty dress, but you're right. It needs to fit better.
Leera: Okay. Let's see the next one.
Tasha puts on the next dress and comes back.
Leera: I like it, but you don't have to go with it right now. Let's just keep it as an option.
Tasha: Okay. I'll go try on the next one.
Leera: Here take this green one hanging out here.
Tasha takes the green one off the rack, puts in on in the fitting room and returns.
Giordana: I agree the dress needs to fit well. There are still more options, right?
Leera: Yes, even a few which arrived today. I didn't look through them all, but I saw some dresses and left those items in their bag in the fitting room. Maybe one of those will fit.
Janeer: What will we do if absolutely nothing fits or is right?
Leera (sighing): I was hoping I would not have to do this with my busy schedule, but I may have to design something. I'm still hopeful something will wow us all. Keep your fingers crossed.
Tasha returns with the green dress.
Leera: Yes, I can fix it. I don't know. You look pretty in it, but it's not speaking to me.
Janeer: Maybe accessories will change the look. Sometimes that really elevates something.
Giordana: True. But I'm not terribly sold on this one. It's pretty, but not quite there.
Leera: Unfortunately, I agree.
Tasha: What do we do now?
Leera: There is a bag in the fitting room with some other items. Grab something from it and try it on. I haven't had a chance to look through it thoroughly yet, but maybe something will work.
Tasha goes back to the fitting room, grabs something from the new bag and returns wearing it.
Tasha (frowning): This was in there. What do you think?
Janeer (to Giordana): I can see you don't particularly like it, but there's something about it. (to Leera) Leera, I think there's something about this outfit that's sending a message. I feel like it's more exciting than the other things Tasha has tried on so far.
Giordana: Good point. I didn't think of that.
Tasha: So you think I'll need something more special?
Leera: Yes and, if we can't find something more special off the rack, I will design something more becoming.
Tasha (feeling ready to cry): Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Leera: That will delay your move to the display area, but it will be worth it in the end.
Tasha: That's okay. I want to look like I fit in, so I'll wait.
Janeer: It's not a problem. I'm happy to come back again to help you get ready. Leera, just let us know when you're ready for next steps.
Giordana: Tasha, we're going to make it our mission to get you to Display. Don't worry. It may take longer, but we're here to support you.
Tasha: Thank you all again.
Well, Tasha is not quite prepared for her promotion, but at least the ladies who can help her are trying to get it done. I wonder what they'll figure out.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
