May 22nd, 2015

Episode 235 of 465 episodes

Learn to dress right for a formal event in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:15 Explanations: 3:03 Fast dialog: 14:45 Patricia: Hey, look at you! You’re all decked out. What’s the occasion? Renaud: I’m going to the Ortegas’s party. Aren’t you? Patricia: Yeah, but I’m not getting all dolled up for it. I think the dress is casual. Renaud: I heard that it’s going to be an upscale affair and I don’t want to be underdressed. Patricia: But I’d rather not be overdressed. Renaud: Okay, then what are you wearing? Patricia: I’m going to dress up these jeans with a chic blouse. And then I’m going to accessorize with this necklace as a statement piece. Renaud: That’s a nice outfit, but it’s more appropriate for a casual event, not a party. Patricia: But that’s what I’m trying to tell you. This is not a formal affair. Renaud: Do what you like, but I’m not going to risk being inappropriately dressed for one of the Ortegas’s parties. I don’t want to be blacklisted and not be invited in the future. Their parties are legendary, with the best food, the best booze... Patricia: Oh, you’re right. What was I thinking?! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
