Girl: Hey, I really, really like this. Do you think it's cute?
Girl: Be honest. Is this cute? I really want this.
Friend: *looks at the girl's arms* Well...
Girl: Ok. *sad*
And then the girl went back to the fitting room. She did not buy the top.
This scene broke my heart for two reasona:
1. She looked really cute in that top.
2. I was hoping she would buy it anyway, despite the obvious disagreement of her friend. I actually wanted to say something but I was afraid I'd be accused of eavesdropping and told to mind my own business. In hindsight, well, maybe I was eavesdropping, but they did have the conversation near me!
Next time something similar happens, is it socially acceptable here in Australia to jump in on a conversation like this?
I know it's fat chance, but if ever someday, the girl comes across this blog post, I have this to say to you: you're beautiful - don't let anyone ever tell you what and what not to wear.
