Hola Nicole

Dictations don't come with a translation I'm afraid. But if you want to know what a specific word, phrase or sentence means,  please let us know through the forum. 

"Luego puedo ir a la tienda para ver cómo me sienta." means "Later I can go to the shop to see how it fits me/ how it looks on me/ if I look nice."

I imagine your doubt may be on "cómo me sienta". We use verb "sentar" when we talk about clothes. We generally say "me sienta bien" (it fits me nicely/ it looks good on me) or the oppossite "me sienta mal" (it doesn't look good on me). 

For example: 

a - ¿Cómo me sienta este vestido?

b- Te sienta muy bien. 

Hope this helps

Saludos
