I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 141
Translated by ShainaG Translations
After hearing Mu Mingtang’s, the women didn’t wait for the maid’s orders, and immediately opened their own booklet with a smile, handed it to the maid, and stared at Mu Mingtang eagerly. The maids collected the things, placed them in a tray, and presented them in a semicircle in front of Mu Mingtang. Mu Mingtang hesitated slightly, and finally picked up a book.
The pattern and design were drawn on the booklet, and fabric samples were attached on the side. The description was very detailed. The woman who was selected below was overjoyed and immediately introduced her new product energetically. Mu Mingtang opened the pamphlet as she listened, and felt that several of them were quite good, and for a while she didn’t know how to choose.
Seeing Mu Mingtang having a hard time, the maid asked timely: “Princess, what do you think?”
Mu Mingtang frowned: “These three items all have their own strengths, I can’t decide yet.”
The maid said, “If you need more time to think, just keep all of them.”
Mu Mingtang was shocked. She thought that these words sounded rather familiar. Wasn’t that what she said when she cheated over Mrs. Jiang’s dowry?
How can spending Mrs. Jiang’s money the same as spending her own money? Mu Mingtang closed the booklet and said, “How can we do that? Just buy what I need, do I need this many clothes?”
“The prince had given orders, buy all the items that the princess liked. As long as the princess likes it, it can’t be returned to the outside world.”
Mu Mingtang didn’t pick up the conversation for a while, Xie Xuanchen is living way too lavishly, right? But when the women below heard this, all of them were delighted, they admired Mu Mingtang’s beauty and generosity, and the prince was so kind to the princess.
Mu Mingtang was overwhelmed with praise. She finally felt that the rich could really do whatever they wanted. No matter how a piece of clothing was originally designed, as long as Mu Mingtang didn’t like it, the shopkeeper immediately nodded and bowed, and changed according to Mu Mingtang’s preference. Later, Mu Mingtang was too lazy to even bother anymore, she picked up a booklet and just scanned through it roughly. If it wasn’t particularly eye-catching, she immediately put it back down.
However, the women that were chosen by Mu Mingtang were so happy that their eyes could hardly be seen. The women who were favored by the princess walked out from the other door while holding the booklet. These ready-to-wear garments were all tailor-made. Mu Mingtang chose the style, and then the tailor would naturally make the clothing according to Mu Mingtang’s measurements.
After Mu Mingtang went through the whole street at home, she took whatever she wanted and was satisfied. At this time, Jiang Mingwei also made an appointment with a couple of friends, and went to the most prestigious Cao Men Street in the capital to have some fun.
Cao Men Street was bustling, with ready-to-wear clothing shops, tailor shops, and fabric shops. As there were many high-ranking officials and women, wealthy merchants rented conspicuous locations to open jewelry shops and tea houses. The normal folk who couldn’t keep up with them in terms of their financials, didn’t admit defeat. They carried baskets on the street and sold silk, moths, flower sacs, incense, and people were also buying sweets, snacks, and food, there were a variety of items, and the capital was very prosperous.
But when Jiang Mingwei came today, she felt that something was wrong. The shops on both sides of the street usually welcomed them into their shops. If they saw their carts, the daughter-in-laws who specially serve women would have appeared to get some business, but today, when they all got off their sedan chairs, they still didn’t see those familiar faces.
Jiang Mingwei didn’t think much about it, so she just picked a store and went in. The shopkeeper was very surprised when they saw them. Although their attitude was very respectful, Jiang Mingwei could feel that he was distressed.
One of her good friends wasn’t happy about it. They had been playmates since young, and Jiang Mingwei married the best, but the fathers of the others were all under Xie Ruiti, and their husbands were also quite powerful. These few were accustomed to being pampered by others. Seeing that the shopkeeper actually sent a man to greet them, she was immediately annoyed: “It doesn’t matter if you treat us badly. However, If you neglect the nobles, there is no way for forgiveness. Didn’t you see that Princess Jin is also here? If any of you crosses Princess Jin, can you bear the consequences?”
The servant constantly nodded and smiled apologetically, he didn’t dare to speak at all. The shopkeeper felt that he was doomed from the very beginning, and it didn’t take long for the shopkeeper to rush over and said with a smile: “Please have mercy. You ladies are all of noble identities and I would never dare to neglect you, but……today, unfortunately, the daughter-in-laws of our shop have gone out to entertain the nobles. I’m afraid we can’t serve you ladies. Forgive me, my ladies.”
