Jen & Priestly's place, Santa Cruz, Wednesday afternoon
Dinah's vacation was half-over, but she couldn't say it hadn't been full. Aside from the Showdown on Sunday, yesterday had resolved things for Trucker, Piper, and Jen and Fuzzy. Awwwwwwww! Next bit of awesome: Kennedy was back in contact!

She'd also lost her bet/challenge/deal with Priestly, so, Red Boots Fashion Show time it was.

There might have just been a tiny problem with the lacings. And her nerves.

[for denizens of Santa Cruz, phone calls, and texts!]

"Hokaaay." Dinah shed her top and shorts, then carefully pulled on the dress. It was a tad loose in the bodice, but the waist did hit her in the right place, and it wasn't too short. "Oooooo."

"I think we have a winner," Tish decided. "Here." She dug through her purse and pulled out a couple of safety pins. "Turn around, let me tighten up the top."

Dinah obediently turned, holding it up to her chest. "Thanks for this." Not just the clothes help, but the girl talk about Priestly. It was reassuring that he wasn't going to definitely get hurt. He and Tish were alike in a lot of ways, but very different in others, so... "Not just borrowing your clothes."

"Hey," Tish said. "This is what I'm good at." She pinched the fabric together above Dinah's lower back and pinned it, then again at the top of the bodice. "Not just the clothes. "I know some girls like me talk about how they don't like other girls, but I figure they've gotta be full of it. Girls are the shit, and we gotta stick together."

Dinah grinned at her in the mirror. "Yeah. I have a lot of guy friends, but-- I don't get girls who don't like other girls." She bounced as soon as Tish stopped pinning her, then wobbled on the boots. "Whoa, okay." She beamed at her reflection, then Tish. "It looks classy! As well as sexy. I can deal with this." And Priestly wouldn't be able to make any of his 30's musical jokes, either. Nobody else would get those.

He'd be too wordless for jokes at first, anyway.

"I like it," Tish agreed. "You've definitely got the sex appeal, but you've also got the romance of that skirt. You wanna do a little bit of make up, or you ready to go knock that boy over?"

Dinah smirked, then reached for her purse. "Maybe just some lipstick. I really don't need more blush." And hey, she had eyeliner in there. Somewhere.

"Definitely not," Tish agreed. "I can't help you out on that front, though. Our coloring's totally different."

"Yeahhh..." Dinah carefully applied the lipstick, then some of her darker eyeliner, blotted everything, then stood up. Fluffing her hair with her fingers, she said, "Ready?"

"Hang on." Tish pulled out her phone and got the camera function queued up. "You're cool if I tape this, right?"

"I don't mind." And it might be funny to watch later, if she got too flustered to watch Priestly's reaction. "Let's go." Taking a breath, and making sure the dress wasn't going to fall, Dinah reached for the doorknob.

"Here I come, guys," she called.

Priestly jumped up from where he'd been slouched on the couch next to Jen, teasing Piper about Noah and Julia. "Finally! What took you two so -- holy wow."

Dinah grinned and caaaarefully walked forward, then managed a curtsy. His expression was just as great as the ones from trying on New Year's dresses. Maybe even better. "See? I keep my promises. Red boots." And she didn't feel too silly, either, thanks to Tish.

Priestly gaped some more. Jen and Piper offered thumbs up behind him.

"I knew that dress was the winner," Piper said. "Those boots are amazing."

"You look great," Jen agreed.

"Holy wow," said Priestly again. Behind Dinah, Tish rolled her eyes. These two had to have a history in there, somewhere.

Priestly's gape gave into a grin. "See? I told you those boots would be awesome!"

It was a secret history. That would take an archaeologist or time-traveler to explain.

"Thanks, guys." Dinah beamed at Piper and Jen, and admitted, "Yes, yes you did. I might actually get the nerve to wear them out in New Gotham, with a dress like this one." She leaned forward to hug him, relieved it had all come out well.
