Shop Staff Photos

If there’s anything I’m good at, it’s shopping. I also love talking to shop staff so this creates the perfect opportunity to take some pictures.

Before anyone complains about privacy issues, I asked them all and told them it would be on my blog.


AYANO from 109 EGOIST.

She cracked the hell up when I started speaking to her. She was in shock. It was really funny. I really liked her though and since I like EGOIST’s Fall collection I’ll definitely see her again.

R&E Roseessence

SAYURI from Ikebukuro PARCO R&E

They had nothing for me, but I R&E is my favorite shoe store. I absolutely loved her coordinate. All the shop staff were in leopard cardigans of different colors and styles. It was quite cute.

There is a leopard cardigan boom btw.


RENO from Ikebukuro PARCO MURUA

She was so nice and friendly and MURUA just impressed me so much. Her hair color is just gorgeous IRL and her gel nails are splendid (you can see a few there) very lovely and adult. I regret not taking a pic of her nails :icon_eek:

She’s holding my happy purchase.  I will be happy to see her and MURUA again :upheart:


Arisa from 109 W♥C

This is my girl! :happydance:

I talked to her back in December (post) and the day we met we really hit it off, but it was the day before I left. :sage:

I found her blog (here) and I’ve been tumbling pics of her (here)

We had a good 15 minute freakout seeing each other again. She’s amazing! :cat:

This pose actually came from our crazy conversation. Another staff-chan was talking about my body (if you’re a gaijin it will happen ) and she did that pose to explain “merihari” (aka curvy). So we all did it. :hands: LOL good times :up:

…and that’s it! I wanted to take more photos, but a few stores were really busy (OneWay and EMODA especially). I’ll try to keep filing in more shop staff photos. I just love seeing coordinates and personal styles. :butterfly:

If you’re craving more shop staff pics stop by my girls Bloomzy & Hana @ Finding Tokyo to see some fabulous pics :waves:

    haha you make shop staff seem so friendly~ it probably helps you can speak enough japanese to converse with them! in korea they hover over you soooo badly but usually say nothing to you if you’re a foreigner. it’s more annoying than helpful, tbh :mad:

    but anyway, tangent~~
    glad to see you’re already having a good time :!:

      hehehe some are not as nice, it just depends. But those who are, are quite kind :yayblush:

    Oh wow, the MURUA staff-chan is gorgeoussss~ 美人過ぎる!!!
    Sooo jealous right now, I wish I could also be in Japanese stores ATM! xDDD
    I hope you have a great great time there and take a lot of photos for your blog :D

      BTW, two nights ago I had an interesting dream: Liz Lsia and MURUA were both opening big stores in Poland, haa~ I was so excited, but then I woke up (T_T)

        hahahahaha i think that’s an absolutely fabulous dream :hearts3: Although I’d like EMODA and WC opening up for me :stepup:

        Yeah she was a gorgeous lady. The shocking fact is how many shop staff are shockingly beautifl :yayblush:

  3. October 5, 2010 / 6:03 am

    I want to go shopping with you so badly haha :-D
    I love getting shop staff pictures as they always carry off the looks so well imo.

    You must teach me your confidence to speak to shop staff. I always say a few simple things but get too shy to say anything else :(

    • October 6, 2010 / 7:49 pm

      p.s. Seeing that R&E pic makes me want thigh high/over-the-knee boots even more!!
      But I know I’d just look like even more of a short ass haha

      October 10, 2010 / 6:19 pm

      We must go together and talk to them. Maybe 109 since there’s more opportunities :cat:

  5. October 5, 2010 / 6:19 am

    • Mitsu
      October 10, 2010 / 6:26 pm

      I found those shorts so cute, too! But they’re only for the tiny of tiny, so it was a no-no for me. They looked really lovely on her though :heartshake:

    Jesus, staff-chans make me so jealous. D: Good or bad lighting, they always look good! ;__; I’d be beyond afraid to walk into one of the stores, because of how good they look. xD And their taste in fashion; so cute!!

    Also, I, literally, just now stumbled across your blog/site. :D First time reader! ^^
