StaaaaBucks and Jimmy Choo for YOU

Japan has STAAABUCKS! Staaabucks, staaabucks, staaaaaabucks! Today in the big city there was a staaabucks around every corner. I nearly went crazy. Which Staaabucks should we go to first? Crystal, this Staabucks is for you. It wasn't the same without you.

You would never believe it. We found Jimmy Choo. There it was...every girl's dream. I looked high and low until I found the perfect shoe for Crystal. But, the only problem was the language barrier. How could I communicate her size to the friendly sales lady? Would she understand me? I began pointing at the shoe and then showing her 8 fingers. Maybe she would figure it out. Much to my surprise she seemed to understand what I was trying to say. I couldn't believe my luck! Well, little did I know my luck was about to run out. The sales lady disappeared into the back for a few minutes. I could tell by the look on her face that she had bad news. She rattled off a bunch of stuff to me in Japanese, but I knew what she was trying to say. In just one small moment she completely crushed all my hopes of bringing Crystal an authentic Jimmy Choo shoe.

Well Crystal, I hope you know that I tried. I tried real hard. The least I could do was take a photo to show you what could have been, but what was never meant to be. Sorry, sis. I can only hope you will understand.
