Dress Up!

chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Smiling faintly she feels a little silly but she lays out the image in salt with care. Her brow furrowing a bit as she sets down the Louis Vuitton heels in a rather large size. “here we are… I do like to repay my debts” she looks around a bit. “Nibo I so summon thee in the name of awesome footware” grinning a bit after that.
chatlog-st.png ST
That familiar scent of medicinal herbs, cigar smoke, and rum suffuses the air. The shadows seem to grow, even from the pile of salt, to proportions far larger than the objects that cast them. Soon enough, another shadow grows, quickly shifting and settling into a humanoid shape. As Nibo steps forward, the shadows return to normal, revealing his face. “You know, hon, it’s a lot easier if you find me a horse first.” His eyes settle on the shoes and light up instantly. “Then again, the size for those would be off those are so LOVELY I can’t BELIEVE it!”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura winces slightly and tsks “Sorry about that, not my pantheon I’m sort of going by ear” she grins as she picks up the shoes and hands them over. “I did promise after all” she brushes her hand lightly back over her hair. “I was about to head out and take Sofia shopping for some goodies of her own, maybe a cute little dress or some adorable mary janes in patent leather” Sanura looks fit to squee at the prospect. “That’s if Alejo will allow it” she glances up towards the office and looks unsure.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Alejo?”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura grins a little bit at that “you know the cutie pie latino from last time?”
chatlog-st.png ST
Nibo takes a delighted deep breath as his grin grows on his face. “So Alejo’s his name, huh?” He wiggles his eyebrows a little. “Me gusta!” He pauses. “Hey, let’s bring him along!”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura snickers softly at his response to that. “Um.. well.. we could ask.. he’s pretty busy and.. you know.. busy being stoic..” she turns towards the stairs and starts up them. “but for Sofia he might tag along.” she gets to the office door and raps on it.
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro opens the door. “Yes?”
“Hola, guapo,” says Nibo.
Alejandro looks to Nibo, slowly blinks, and then looks to Sanura again. “Did I miss something?”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles a little “Well I did promise Nibo those lovely shoes and then I mentioned I wanted to take Sofia out to get a few things.. if that’s alright that is..” she clears her throat “and well.. Nibo thought you might want to come along with”
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro’s phone speaks up. “Daddy, is that Miss Menmatre? Are we going to the mall? I need some more Legos, I’m making the Titanic and I ran out… OOOH can I get some ice cream too?”
“Oh my gawd, your daughter sounds so adorable!” Nibo says, his voice just short of a squeal.
Alejandro takes a deep breath. “I’m sorry, but I have a lot of things to —”
“Oh COME ON, you ALWAYS say that, Daddy.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura chuckles softly as Sofia goes to work. Her dark brows arch lightly as she jokingly leans over “Come on, Daddy” said in a little bit of a whine before she straightens “you need to approve my wardrobe choices anyway” she notes.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Oooh,” says Nibo, giving Sanura a knowing look and a sly smile. “I’m glad you said something when you did, hon. Now I know it’s hands off.”
“Who’s that?” asks Sofia.
Alejandro blinks slowly again, takes a deep breath. “Miss Menmatre, now’s —”
“’Now’s not the time,’” says Sofia in a deepened voice. “’I’m so busy all the time and I never take my sweet daughter anywhere except that one time to meet all the superheroes.’”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura looks at Nibo in question. “What’s that? What’s hands off?” she questions with a quirk of her brow as Sofia continues bagering her dad to go with. She pauses “Oh oh.. nono he’s not -my- daddy I was just joking around..” she holds up her hands and blushes lightly.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Whatever you say, sugar,” Nibo says with a smirk.
Alejandro runs a hand through his hair. “Sofia, please.”
“Daddy, please.”
Nibo rolls his eyes. “Oh, /please/.”
With a slight sense of vertigo and a shifting of light and shadows, Sanura, Alejandro, and Sofia find themselves alongside Nibo in the middle of a parking garage that proclaims “Westfield San Francisco Centre.”
“There, problem solved,” says Nibo, dusting his hands.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura gives a faint shake of her head to clear it as they’re suddenly at the mall. “Well.. that’s one way to get what you want” she snorts softly “maybe I should pic up that trick” she sets her hand on her hip and adjusts her bag. She grins and offers a hand to Sofia. “Let’s go get you some super cute shoes and maybe a dress, or a some cute pajamas” she’s already clearly in dream land about all the cute things she can dress the little girl in. Her heels click lightly on the pavement as she starts inside.
chatlog-st.png ST
Nibo grins and follows, but stops and does a double-take as his eyes settle on Sofia’s scars. He furrows his well-groomed brow in concern but keeps silent for the time being.
Alejandro massages his temples with a thumb and forefinger before proceeding onward behind the ladies and the queen in resignation.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles as they enter the mall with the cool swish of the ac washing over them. She checks over the map and points out a posh shoe shop. “Stop numero uno” she declairs. “Sofia what size do you wear sweetie?” she questions as she starts into the light weekday traffic of the mall. “I was thinking either black pattent leather.. it goes with everything.. or maybe a nice soft brown suede if you’ve got very dressy shoes already..”
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia looks back at Alejandro. “Daddy what size am I?”
“Hmm, I’d say a two or three, sweetie,” says Nibo.
“Three,” says Alejandro flatly.
Nibo grins and wiggles his eyebrows.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura laughs softly “You’ve got skills” she smiles as she reaches the shoe shop and leads the way in. She glances to Nibo and feigns the sound of a heavenly choir before grinning and moving towards the girls section of shoes. “so, do you have anything very dressy?” she questions and then pauses “maybe your first pair of heels?” she looks to Alejo with that suggestion, her brows arching lightly in askance.
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro makes a bit of a face at the mention of heels. “She’s seven, for goodness’s sake.”
“Oh lighten up, hermano,” says Nibo.
“I dunno. I don’t wear lots of dresses,” says Sofia. “I like jeans.”
Alejandro makes a face that says, ‘See? I’m not the only one’ and motions to her, open-palmed.
Nibo rolls his eyes.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles a little. “So.. has your daddy ever actually given you anything absolutely fabulous to wear?” she glances to Alejo.. “I Bet the only dress you’ve had is a school jumper” she notes with a slight roll of her eyes to Alejo’s expression. “We can try some things on even if we don’t buy, that’s part of the fun anyway” She assures as she picks up a little pair of black shoes with a very slight heel and holds them out to Sofia. “Want to give these a try?” [no tap parts on them though ]
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
[hah lookit this and these are for a wee lil one ]
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia looks at them a little doubtfully, then she shrugs and her expression returns to normal. “Okay, sure!” She sits down and kicks off her well-worn sneakers.
Nibo grins broadly. “I’m gonna look for some more for you, girlie.”
Alejandro half-crosses his arms, but stands back and lets the girl time happen.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura grins a little as Sofia seems game to at least give the girly attire a try. She helps her get the bows centered and tied prettily. “here we go” she straightens and looks at the cute little shoes “Tres chic” she intones with a soft nod of her head. "those probably would go well with all sorts of things.. though you’ll need something light colored as well.. maybe white or hmmn silver.. " she taps her chin.
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia regards them thoughtfully.
Nibo returns with an armful of shoeboxes and sets them down around the floor. “Hmm. With her light skin and dark hair… she’s a winter. She should definitely go for the deep gem colors.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura chuckles a little as Nibo goes to town with it, her gaze flicking to Alejo. “you know you could use some new loafers, italian?” she suggests with a grin before looking back to where Sofia is trying on shoes. She spots a pair in deep red with black lace and is drawn to them like a magnet.
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro looks at his shoes before looking back to Sanura, who seems to have wandered off. He follows her. “Why? What’s wrong with my shoes?”
As Nibo helps Sofia try on a different pair, he says, “Big feet for a little girl!” His following laugh is somewhere between a giggle and a chuckle. “I bet you’re gonna be very tall when you grow up, and quite a heartbreaker too.”
“Oh, I don’t want to break anyone’s heart.”
“No one says you have to do it on purpose, sweetie.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura glances up “Oh… nothing is wrong with them.. I just thought you’d like to get something a little more posh?” She steps out of her shoes and uses Alejo’s shoulder to try on the open toe shoe. She grins a little bit. “But if you want to look like Sofia’s Grampa rather than her single, available father” she shrugs lightly, her tone teasing as she extends her foot outward and admires the shoe. Hearing Sofia and Nibo she smiles lightly at the girls response and then the quick off the cuff from Nibo.
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro sighs. “These shoes are comfortable, and I’m not… on the market, as it were. I just don’t have the time for it.” He pauses. “Besides, no one’s going to mistake me for her grandpa.”
chatlog-st.png ST
He stands still, however, as Sanura uses him for balance.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura rolls her eyes as she admires her choice. “What do you think? Too bold?” she questions as she points a toe towards him and lifts her foot a bit so he can get a better look. “I know you don’t -look- like her poppop but you sure do act like it. You need to make time for it, it’s a sin to not live life to the fullest you know, and besides that you don’t want a heavy heart at the end of your journey” she smiles a little.
chatlog-st.png ST
“I’m working so that others can live their lives to the fullest,” retorts Alejandro. “And I do make time for Sofia, contrary to what she might tell you.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles “I know that, she adores you so much, she wouldn’t if you were an absentee father” she murmurs as she takes of the shoes and re-boxes them for purchase. “It’s a great goal but it doesn’t mean you have to limit yourself you know” she smirks faintly “besides Nibo seems more than willing to show you a good time” she teases with a wink as she turns to go see what shoes Sofia might have picked out. “Any luck lady and laddy?”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
[the purple/black swirly ones for Sofia? ]
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia is walking back and forth in a pair of deep ruby-red shoes.
“There’s no place like home, honey!” says Nibo.
“Huh?” asks Sofia.
Nibo sends a dark look Alejandro’s way. “Don’t tell me you’ve never shown her the Wizard of Oz.”
He puts his hands up. “Excuse me for getting her to play outside.”
“There’s a difference between saving your child from junk TV and depriving her of the classics.” Nibo sighs and pulls out another pair of shoes. “C’mere, you. We’ve still got a couple pairs to try on.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura laughs softly at that “I have to agree with Nibo on that one, I mean.. everyone should see that, besides how can she enjoy Wicked with out the base story..” Seeing that Nibo has Sofia well in hand Sanura glances to Alejandro. “Come on, it’s just a pair of shoes, not a decleration of going on the meat market.” she puts her arm through his and drags him over to the rather small mens section with some rather pricey leather loafers. “Look you can even get somber black, it will suit your sense of fun perfectly” she taunts as she picks up a pair to show him.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
[ dun dun dun so somber ]
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro sighs in resignation. “Fine.” He looks the loafers over, not seeming to so much as bat an eyelash at any of the prices. Instead he glances at the size on the ones Sanura’s picked. “I’m a 9 1/2.” He looks at the shelf and pulls out a dark-brown pair. “How’s this?”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles “Acutally I like those the buckle is pretty snazzy” she nods her approval and nudges him “so aweful wasn’t it?” she grins as she goes back to where Nibo and Sofia are. “Anything you like especially?” she questions as she sits next to Sofia with her own box resting on her lap.
chatlog-st.png ST
“I like these blue ones,” Sofia says, pausing a moment in tying her sneakers back on to indicate the pair in question. “Nibo says that I should get the purple ones too, for special occasions.”
Nibo looks over to Alejandro trying his shoes on. “Ooooh, got him in on the fun, did you?” he asks Sanura. Then his eyes light up. He motions Sanura and Sofia closer in a clandestine manner.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura nods “oh those are cute I love the purple” she grins in responce to the question and then leans over curious as her brows arch lightly “what is it?” she whispers softly as she regards Nibo.
chatlog-st.png ST
“We’ve GOT to get him to try on some suits,” murmurs Nibo, keeping a careful eye to make sure Alejandro isn’t paying attention.
“But Daddy wears suits all the time,” says Sofia. “He has a bunch in his closet.”
“He doesn’t have to buy anything, sweetie.”
Sofia shrugs again. “Okay.”
“Whadya say? You in?” Nibo asks of Sanura.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles and nods her head “Definitely, and something for going out, not just a work suit” she pulls a face and then grins to Sofia “Maybe we can even get him out of the office and into a club for a half hour” sounds very doubtful about that prospect.
chatlog-st.png ST
“I can hear everything you’re saying,” murmurs Alejandro, just as clandestine as the trio. Somehow he managed to approach the circle without being noticed.
chatlog-st.png ST
Nibo yelps a little, startled.
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia giggles. Even Alejandro cracks a little smile.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura sits up with a start as well though she doesn’t yelp. She glances over her shoulder her cheeks pink. “Forgot about that hearing” she murmurs looking just a little guilty. She stands and turns to face him. “So.. you will play along won’t you?” she questions as she wraps her arm around his and leans against his side, obviously pouring it on thick so he won’t take it as a serious flirt.
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro looks to the sky in a long-suffering manner.
“Oh, c’mon, Daddy. We’re playing dress-up. It’s only fair you should too,” says Sofia.
“Honey, my dress-up is completely different,” comments Nibo. “Actually…” A mischievous smile breaks out on his face. Alejandro opens his mouth and lifts a hand to firmly decline, but Nibo cuts him off. “Oh, relax, guapo. I know exactly where you fall on the Kinsey scale, okay? Besides, I really wanna see you in a suit.”
After a pause, Alejandro says, “Okay. Fine. Fine.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura chuckles a little at the exchange and then arches a brow “Pfft Alejo isn’t on the Kinsey scale” she smirks as she picks up her own box and opens it to admire her newest shoes. “they’re sort of.. well.. they remind me of lingerie but they’re just to cute to pass up” she shows them to Nibo before heading over with her box and the two for Sofia.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Oooh, sexy,” Nibo comments. “I like it. And I bet you pull it off like nothing else -- you’ve got the calves for it, for sure.”
Alejandro moves to the checkout, his own box in tow, letting the girl talk dominate the conversation again.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura grins at the compliment “I’ll try that’s for sure” she pays for the shoes and gives a happy little shake of her rump. “I love shoes” she grins
chatlog-st.png ST
It’s not long before Alejandro finds himself carrying all the bags of shoes. How it ended up that way will forever remain a mystery.
Sofia skips ahead, humming the Adventure Time theme.
“Your daughter’s so adorable,” Nibo says to Alejandro.
“Uh, thanks…”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smirks faintly and walks a bit quicker to keep up with the little girl. “ready to play dress up with dresses, sweetie?” She’d lead the way into a specialty shop
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia eyes the dress shop. “I… I don’t have any tights or anything…”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura shrugs “Nothing to worry about. We’ll get some in there, they’ve got better quality stockings than most stores” She offers her hand to the little girl. “I already see something that would look so great on you, you’ll have to run away from all the little boys on the playground” she winks playfully.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Nuh-uh!” Sofia takes Sanura’s hand. “If they’re mean to me, I can beat them up no problem.”
“So tell me why you didn’t get her to a proper healer,” says Nibo.
“That happened before I adopted her,” says Alejandro, his tone firmly neutral. “She was taken to a mortal doctor.”
Nibo eyes him warily for a bit before turning his attention back to the front. “Yes, well… That doesn’t explain the arm.”
“Her biological father’s doing,” says Alejandro curtly.
Nibo falls silent at that, lifts his chin, and heads towards Sanura and Sofia, working his new shoes like no tomorrow. Alejandro crosses the threshold of the store and returns to his position just outside of the girl circle.
“Oooh, this is interesting,” Nibo comments, looking around at the selection.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles as she looks over all the recreations of attire from decades past. “Isn’t it lovely” she gives Sofia’s hand a squeeze “Oh well you can’t be to mad at them if they think you’re super cute, they’re right after all” she leads her over to a display of little girls dresses. “ohhhh” [[ the blue one but in red/pink tones ]]
chatlog-st.png ST
“They don’t think I’m cute,” says Sofia, eyeing the dresses a little doubtfully. “And I don’t want them to. I want them to respect me, like Daddy says.”
“You go girl,” says Nibo.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura chuckles a little bit. “Well that’s when you look good, and have a steel backbone” she nods her head. “Nothing garners respect more than a pretty girl that doesn’t take any nonsense” she gives a firm nod and picks up the red print dress. She holds it up for Sofia but looks to Alejo in question.
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro’s eyes are on Sofia, gauging her reaction. Though his expression is mostly neutral, there’s a slight tinge of concern.
“Um… okay… I guess I’ll try it on,” says Sofia.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles “just for fun sweetie, you don’t have buy a single thing if you don’t want to” She smooths her hand over the girls head as she heads with her into the dressing room.
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia just nods as she’s lead to the dressing room. Alejandro walks over to the wall just outside the designated dressing room area and leans against it. Nibo stays out of the dressing room area as well, eyeing Alejandro.
“So what happened to your foot?” Nibo asks bluntly.
Alejandro merely sends Nibo a look.
As Sofia tries the dress on, her eyes are glued to the ground. The scarring can be seen clear as day from her right ankle all the way up the side of her neck and onto her face. Only her right arm appears unscathed. She rubs it self-consciously.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura adjusts Sofia’s hair back over her ears. “Oh honey, that looks so pretty on you, I mean the dress was cute but on you it’s just adorable” She does a little dance and bends at the knee behind Sofia, then noticing the little girl didn’t look up. “Sweetie.. if you really don’t like the dress we can find you something else.. a little pant suit for when you go to your daddy’s office?” she suggests with a smile. Though she smooths the skirt with admiration and then notices the way her scars are much more exposed. Her brows draw together and she turns the little girl to face her. “Hey.. you are a gorgeous, wonderful, brave little lady and you don’t have to cover up all the time. You deserve to dress just as spectacularly as you want or don’t want to.. but don’t let something that doesn’t matter stop you from doing as you want.” she murmurs as she lightly pets her fingers over the little girls scars. “Now.. you look great in this but if you don’t like it just let me know and we’ll go find you something that suites you just right ok?” She kisses her on the cheek lightly.
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia nods a little, her eyes coming up a little, but not breaking from the ground yet. “I just… don’t like it when people stare at me.”
Alejandro leans his head against the wall, growing thoughtful.
“Well?” asks Nibo.
Again Alejandro looks at the death god. “With all due respect, it’s none of your business.”
Nibo rolls his eyes. “Fine. No need to be Mr. Sensitive about it.”
Alejandro just crosses his arms.
Sofia glances at the mirror before she begins changing back into her other clothes. “I think I like t-shirts and jeans better. Sorry, Miss Menmatre. It’s a nice dress, though.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles a little and nods “sure thing, hun, how about a cute little dress suit though or are you going to be strictly a jeans sort of girl?” She questions “Don’t you want to show your daddy first at least? He’d be missing out if he didn’t get to see how cute you look” she coaxes with a gentle tone of voice. Though any further resistance and she’d simply hang the dress up neatly to put away once they exit.
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia pauses, one strap half-off with the zipper mostly undone, and says, “Okay.” She shrugs the strap back on, zips it up part of the way, then turns her back so that Sanura could zip it the rest of the way. Once done, she steps out of the dressing room.
Alejandro turns as she crosses the threshold into the main part of the store. Her eyes trail from the ground to him, but she keeps her chin tilted towards her chest. He smiles warmly and says, “Ah, mija.” He crouches in front of her. “She’s right, you know.” With that he gives her a hug.
Nibo’s expression softens a little. He sends a look Sanura’s way, smiles, and winks knowingly.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles a little at Alejo’s reaction and takes a shaky little breath, her eyes tearing up a bit. She glances away at Nibo’s look and carefully dabs under her eyes. Clearing her throat softly. “Mhmmn she totally makes that dress, isn’t that right Queen Fabulous?” she questions of Nibo with a faint joking smile for the silly moniker she ascribes him.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Oh, absolutely,” says Nibo. “You’re just darling, Sofia.”
Alejandro pulls away, keeping his hands on her shoulders. “Do you want me to buy this for you?”
Sofia looks to the side, considering. After a long moment, she says, “Maybe… maybe it could be for special occasions. But I still like t-shirts and jeans.”
Alejandro smiles again. “Of course.”
After changing back into her street clothes and ringing up the dress, Sofia begins to hum again, looking to be in higher spirits than before.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura beams her approval and she picks out a dress for Nibo and one for herself, she eyes Alejo then and drags Nibo over to consult on what suit to thrust upon him. [This for him, but in a color to match his new lofers perfectly ] [For Nibo ] [for Sanura ]
chatlog-st.png ST
Though Alejandro offers no input to Sanura’s dress, Nibo is more than happy to fill the void with his opinions and adjustments. Sofia just watches, absorbing the girl talk, something that she’s clearly not used to.
Nibo rocks the leopard print without any semblance of shame, posing with his hips cocked to one side, one hand on the back of his head and the other on his hips, chin tilted up.
Alejandro gives them the turn-around when he tries on his suit, which meets with a “Mmmmm,” from Nibo, who then looks at Sanura with a ‘Well?’ expression.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura knew that dress was going to get all the flair it needed with Nibo wearing it and she smooths her hands down the blue skirt as she gives Alejo a critical once over. “Hmmmn” she smiles “Very dapper, you need a hat..” she goes to a wrack and picks one with a matching color and returns to place it on his head and take a step back. “Very nice” she smiles as she turns and walks back to the dressing room. She gives Nibo a look and wiggles her brows with a very slight flick of her eyes back towards Alejo, very careful that he wouldn’t be able to see it, it wouldn’t do to have him think she was hitting on him or something, even if he did look darn good.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Take off your jacket,” says Nibo to Alejandro. With a sigh, Alejandro obliges. “No, no, you have to sling it over your shoulder. But keep your hand on it.” Again, Alejandro obliges. “Mmmm.” Nibo sends another look and smirk Sanura’s way.
“Are you happy yet?” asks Alejandro.
“Oh yes.” Nibo pauses. “You really do cut a nice figure in that, you know.” Alejandro puts his hands up in an ‘Okay, okay, I get it,’ fashion. “But, hon, you NEED to buy that dress TODAY,” says Nibo to Sanura.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura pauses and grins “Oh wait.. strike that pose again Alejo” she orders as she holds up her smart phone and prepairs to take a few pictures. “The seeing as you probably won’t indulge us again” she notes as she snaps a couple of pictures. She bites her lower lip and looks in one of the mirrors after. “Do you think Nibo, it’s a little.. hmmn it’s made for a party and not the office.” she pauses and chuckles a little “Well then again most of my clothes are a bit dressy for work” she admits. She slants a gaze to Alejo and then looks to Sofia directly and questions “What do you think?” she strikes a modest pose.
chatlog-st.png ST
“Honey, if your job isn’t a constant party, you’re in the wrong profession,” says Nibo.
“You’re really pretty,” says Sofia.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura laughs a little “I like my profession.. and I can always dress up especially on my off time” she smiles brightly to Sofia ‘Thank you sweetie but I’ve got nothin’ on you, tsk those eyes" she lightly nudges the girls chin up with her finger. She gives a warm smile before heading into the dressing room to get out of dress to hang it up and take it to the cashier.
chatlog-st.png ST
Sofia smiles a little at Sanura.
Shortly thereafter Alejandro changes back as well, taking the suit back to the rack.
“Well, wasn’t this fun!” says Nibo once everyone has returned to their previous garb. “But, speaking of work, I really should get back to mine. Those gros-bon-ange don’t bring themselves to Guinee, after all!” He kisses the air on either side of Sanura’s face and says, “Thank you for the shoes, darling. I’ll let you know the next time my family decides to throw a party.”
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura smiles and returns the air kisses “It was fun, thanks for coming out” she holds her bag in front of her “You’re welcome. Oh.. I’ll look forward to that” She nods a little. “Take care, lovey” she murmurs before pursing her lips and leaning over to look across at the lingerie shop. She wrinkles her nose a little. She wanted to go there, but tsk.. a glance towards Alejo and little Sofia.. though she wonders if they’d have those cute old fashioned long night gowns.. hmmn.
chatlog-st.png ST
Nibo walks out of the store, disappearing around the corner. Alejandro looks to Sofia and says, “How about that ice cream?” Sofia merely responds with a broad grin.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura chuckles “I’ll catch up with you two, I’ve another shop to visit” she murmurs “Swing back by for me?” she gestures vaguely to the shop she’s going to stop in at.
chatlog-st.png ST
Alejandro glances in the direction she waves in and simply nods to her. “Come on,” he says to Sofia, lifting the bags dutifully. “I think there’s a Cold Stone around here somewhere.” He leaves the store with Sofia skipping beside him, humming once more.
chatlog-hero-sanura.png Sanura
Sanura goes off into the undies store and gets to some serious browsing. She’d pick out a few things but nothing super naughty, not wanting to risk dropping her bag and such things tumbling out! She finds a small section with things for younger girls and grins as she picks out a cute striped set in the smallest size they have. It’d be a bit long probably but it would keep Sofia comfy and warm come winter.

Dress Up!
