Balmain Spring 2009 Sandals

You know, the first thing my dad told me when I woke up on Monday morning last week just four hours before my light for Tokyo was “Bry, a FedEx cargo plane exploded in Narita airport so you need to check with the airline company whether your flight is delayed or not.”

My response: OH NO THEY DIDN’T!!!!!

But not because of my flight. I was scared because my friend Lauren bought a pair of those precious Balmain shoes and they were on their way to Tokyo!

Can you imagine how devastating it would be if you’ve been saving (or in my case, STARVING) for weeks then your $2,000 Balmain spring/summer 2009 sandals blew up with other cargo? I would probably die!!! The sandals arrived in safe hands though — thank god for UPS.

Lauren works for the lovely Adelaide and Addition Adelaide, two of my favourite stores in Tokyo. More about that later.
