Dialogue

It's Saturday and Mrs Smith has gone shopping with her friend Lucy for a new dress in the sales:-

Mrs Smith: Well Lucy, what do you think?
Lucy: Mmm, it's nice, but I think you need a slightly bigger size. The top is gaping.
Mrs Smith:

I think this is the only one. I'd better ask an assistant.

Excuse me? Do you have this in a size 14?

Shop assistant: I'm afraid everything in the sale is out on display.
Mrs Smith: Oh dear, it's just a bit too tight.
Shop assistant: I think we have a size 14 in red.
Mrs Smith: Oh no. Red's just not my colour.
Shop assistant: It's not bright red, it's a nice dark red. Here it is. Why don't you try it on? There's a changing room free over there.
Later...  
Mrs Smith: It fits like a glove. What do you think Lucy?
Lucy: It looks really nice. I guess red suits you after all.
