新概念英语第二册第57课:Can I help you, madam?
Lesson 57 Can I help you, madam?您要买什么，夫人? First listen and then answer the question.
Did the woman get what she wanted?
A woman in jeans stood at the window of an expensive shop. Though she hesitated for a moment, she finally went in and asked to see a dress that was in the window. The assistant who served her did not like the way she was dressed. Glancing at her scornfully, he told her that the dress was sold. The woman walked out of the shop angrily and decided to punish the assistant next day. She returned to the shop the following morning dressed in a fur coat, with a handbag in one hand and a long umbrella in the other. After seeking out the rude assistant, she asked for the same dress. Not realizing who she was, the assistant was eager to serve her this time. With great difficulty, he climbed into the shop window to get the dress. As soon as she saw it, the woman said she did not like it. She enjoyed herself making the assistant bring almost everything in the window before finally buying the dress she had first asked for.

Lesson 57自学导读First things first课文详注Further notes on the text
1．The assistant who served her did not like the way she was dressed.接待她的售货员不喜欢她的那副打扮。
the way在这里表示“方式”、“样式”，she was dressed为关系从句，修饰the way。dress表示“穿着”、“打扮”时常用被动语态：
Why is your aunt dressed in black?
2．…he told her that the dress was sold.……告诉她那件衣服已经卖出去了。
3．She returned to the shop the following morning dressed in a fur coat, with a handbag in one hand and a long umbrella in the other.第2天上午，她又来到这家商店，穿了一件裘皮大衣，一只手拎着一只手提包，另一只手拿着一把长柄伞。
dressed引导的过去分词短语作状语，表示伴随状态。它也可以变换位置，放在句首，其意义不变：Dressed in a fur coat, she returned…with带有两个宾语：handbag和unbrella。with引导的介词短语也作状语，表示伴随状态：
He walked in the park with a dog behind him.
