The French Teacher and the Leather Boots

You all met my boots for what may have been the first time yesterday, in my Stripes and Sparkles outfit post. Today, I was wearing them again, and they were the cause of a very awkward moment.

I was leaving French class, when the teacher asked my to stay for a moment. I panicked, since French is by far my worst subject, and the teacher is mildly terrifying. I walked back into the class, practically shaking in my boots, terrified that she was going to tell me that I had failed something.

Instead, she asked me where I bought my boots. I answered honestly, some store in Montreal two years ago. She looked slightly disappointed, then asked me what size I wore.

I told her I wore a size ten. Her response: "Are you interested in selling them?"

I was at a loss as to what I was suppose to answer, so I said sorry, but I loved them far too much to consider selling.

I can honestly say that it was the strangest thing that has happened to me in a very long time.

Have any of you ever had people offer to buy the clothing you were wearing, or other strange things happen because of your clothing?

Thoughts? Requests?

Love, Rosie

    it's a compliment really.

    i always have a hard time parting with my things. Am very sentimental. But you do what feels right.
