At the Department Store 在百货公司
I’d like to see an overcoat for the autumn.
Not too heavy and not too light.
How do you like this，ma’am？
It’s much too light in color for the autumn.
It’s made of exceptionally good quality，pure wool，very soft.
Please come with me to the fitting room.
I like this style， but I don’t care for the color.
Let me see the crimson one， in my size， please.
This is your size， it’s a lovely dress and very smart.
It’s in fashion now.
Would you like to try it？
It just suits me，I’ll take it.
How much do I have to pay？
That’s rather more than I thought of paying.
I should have like something cheaper.
Maybe a little dearer， but the quality is very good.
It’s exceptionally good in material and the handicraft is more exquisite.
Here’s a gorgeous outfit.
It looks just great on you.

Miss Liu： Let’s see… first floor， cosplaymetics， footwear， traveling bags. Second floor… sportswear， ladies clothing…
