She could not help feeling disappointed at his reply, thinking that this was his excuse not to attend her engagement ceremony .
Her disappointment was plainly reflected in her tone . “Xiao Jie, are you that… unwilling to attend my engagement ceremony?”
This long-lost brother of hers, whom she was reunited with after a decade and a half of separation, was especially precious to her .
At the same time, she really hoped to receive blessings for her happiness from those closest to her .
To her, Gong Jie was as important as her two sons .
“Sis, I just stepped off the plane . I have something important to attend in the US so I’m not in China right now . ”
After a brief pause, he added, “As for your engagement ceremony, can you give me some time to consider?”
His voice, from the other end, sounded depressed and resigned .
Startled, she could only respond with a sad smile . “I won’t force you; no matter what, I’ll reserve a seat for you!”
There was a long silence . The man seemed to mull over it for a while before replying, “I understand . ”
She gave a sigh after putting down the phone . Although her younger brother seemed to agree to her invitation, she wondered if he would really turn up!
Now that he was not in the country, she knew it would be even harder to give him the card, which she had specially set aside .
Sipping her lower lip, she opened the drawer and stowed the invitation card away .
The next day, Mu Yazhe arranged for someone to drive her to the production set while he set off for his office .
By the time she returned from work, he already had a chauffeur waiting to send her to a wedding dress shop .
LOVER, a professional wedding boutique for customized bridal gowns .
Although this was only an engagement ceremony and there was no need for a wedding gown, a formal matrimonial attire was still necessary .
The man had excused himself from meetings early on and had been waiting for her inside the shop .
He was a careful planner and had arranged everything down to the last detail .
Once she entered the store, the manager there ushered her into the VIP room to take her measurements .
As he started with the measurement, he praised her figure with pleasant surprise . “Miss Yun, you have the perfect measurement . You are, what we call, a perfect coat-hanger . Surely, any design and style will look good on you!”
For a moment, she could not figure out if the manager was trying to flatter her or being sincere . Still, she had to be polite so she simply replied, “He he! Thank you for your compliment!”
“It’s not flattery; I really mean it! As a professional tailor, we are very particular about a person’s body proportion! The more exact a woman’s figure is, the better she’ll look in our gown! There’re fewer restrictions, too, when it comes to the design and style . ”
From one side, a handful of shop assistants also started circling her as they busied with the meticulous details, such as measuring her wrists, shoulder length, and girdle…
LOVER was well-known in the capital as the top go-to shop for formal wear, and many stars and socialites were their regular clients . The reason this store could enjoy such good reputation was that their handiwork was truly sublime, delicate, and exclusive .
Every gown was handcrafted, and the measurements were just right—nothing more, nothing less . Not even 0 . 1 millimeter of subtle error was allowed to happen .
Because of this, no gown from this shop would not fit its wearer to a T . Every outfit was highly customized .
Not only that; their dresses were all designed in-house and never mass-produced .
