Personal Shopper || Mariel
Marie had been planning on heading elsewhere for her prom dress. Shopping in Swynlake was hardly that exciting; Marie had lived there almost her entire life, and had seen the high street change over the years. Even then, it didn’t interest her. She had been shopping in Paris, in Milan - Swynlake had some gems, sure, but nothing to suit her tastes.So she was considering going further afield. Knightsbridge, probably. Maybe Oxford. She could even head up to Edinburgh if nothing took her fancy, but that wasn’t going to stop her from looking around in Swynlake, seeing if there was anything to give her some inspiration, or even anything she might actually like to buy. You never know. She wasn’t above buying something from one of the little boutiques.
It was in one of those little boutiques that, out of the corner of her eye, she saw Ariel looking at one of the dresses. It was awful to begin with, a sunset orange colour with some frilly trim and… were those rhinestones? It was enough to make her shudder. But even if Ariel had liked it, Marie couldn’t let her buy it. She just couldn’t. Edging towards her, she said, “You know… if I were someone with your colouring… and your gorgeous hair… I’d probably go for cool colours, not hot ones.” She said, and then she beamed. “They’ll set off your eyes too.”
