Undercover Infiltration Duchess - Chapter 26
The elegant beauty salon selected ‘customers.’
LaPromet’s beauty salon was a costume room that was selective enough not to receive the commoners and the aristocrats who had no money, along with the aristocrats who had a bad social reputation, no matter how much money they had.
Ezet is now in the salon where only the prominent aristocratic ladies are allowed to enter.
With her husband as Duchess of Jaxen.
‘It’s awesome. This and even that are very colorful…….’
If it were fancy in her eyes, she would have looked around rather than come to her senses.
However, the reputation of being the most elegant beauty salon in the empire was not false.
The dress worn on the mannequin in the exhibition room was also selected from the costumes named Madame LaPromet. It was colorful enough to attract the attention of many people. It had a sense of security and elegance that was never excessive.
“Well, can I try it on?”
“Of course. I’d like to recommend this to you.”
Madame LaPromet led Ezet into the dressing room with a business smile.
A white dress with a colorful and pure feel surrounded by layers of vertical lace is so bright that the original fabric cannot be seen—an off-shoulder dress with black and red mesh to create a subtle dark red color.
It is a mermaid-lined dress with dark wine-colored silk that wraps around a ribbon and reveals its body line.
An unbalanced dress decorated with ostrich feathers to enrich the stomach and create a slim silhouette underneath.
And even a dress with LaPromet’s patented technology decorates a fine blue fabric with diamonds and pearls and creates a bright rainbow whenever reflected in the light.
Ezet tried on a total of five dresses.
It was only beautiful things that she didn’t hate at all, so Ezet thought about it.
“Madam, are there any clothes you like?”
“I like everything…”
Ezet was agonizing and asked Edmond.
“Duke… No, Edmond, which dress looks best to me?”
“Everything looks good on you.”
Edmond answered without hesitation. Ezet, who didn’t expect him to say anything nice to her, was a little surprised and opened her eyes wide and blushed.
It was strange that she didn’t want to be praised even though he was a bad guy who overworked her so much last night.
“Let’s buy all the dresses on display here.”
Ezet was surprised and hiccupped.
“You said you liked everything, so you’d better buy everything. Then choose your clothes according to your mood.”
“No, no, no! I don’t need that much! Aren’t all the dresses here costly in the first place? It’s a luxury!”
“It’s a luxury?”
Edmond tilted his head sharply.
Edmond, who mumbled as if he had been mumbling, bent slightly and looked at her and asked.
“Milady, what’s luxury?”
Don’t tell me you don’t know the meaning of luxury. Ezet glanced back and lowered her eyes.
“To waste buying more than you need…”
“I promised I’ll buy Milady a new dress. Is it not necessary to fulfill your promises?”
“No, but this is too much. The price of a dress is not a penny or two….”
“Buying the entire LaPromet beauty salon wouldn’t hurt the Duchy’s finances at all.”
Do you mean that the Duke seems inadequate enough to think that spending this much money is a ‘waste’?
… It sounded like he was saying.
“Just because you have a lot of money, it’s not right to squander it. The money is more for you….”
“The economy of this entire city would be shaken if the Jaxen family saved its money.”
He strode up and laid his hand on her shoulder.
“Buy whatever you want. Use it as much as you want. That’s how the money goes to the market.”
“The Duchy of Jaxen has the greatest wealth in the Empire, and at the same time is the greatest noble family in the Empire. If you are at the top and don’t spend money, the goods won’t flow.”
Surely Edmond was right.
The Jaxen estate was the most fertile territory of the empire, or the continent, and had more than 30 mines alone. The amount of money earned from land-based trade and tourism was also different because the Jaxen family monopolized the railroad across the continent.
It was something that Ezet did not know that the Jaxen family, which has more wealth than the royal family, earns enough to match the annual budget of a small country.
It was a problem if the money was not spent by a family that held so much wealth.
