When I use it: “With a petticoat under it. I love to wear this dress out dancing because it twirls. I’ve also worn it for more casual occasions like a trip to the zoo, to the ice cream parlor, and anytime I want to feel cheered up!”
Shopping tips: “Don’t be afraid to ask a sales associate for things off the mannequins or the walls, even if they are hard to reach items. So many people seem to treat those items as if they were the store’s decor, rather than merchandise, or worry they would be a bother to the employees. Trust me, sales people like to help, and will be more than happy to take the time to get the items, even if in the end it’s not the right style or size for you. And who knows? Maybe the item they helped you get will be a perfect gem!”
