    If I help you with some of the terms, maybe you can work out the meanings.

    1) "spotted" = noticed
    "clutch bag" = small handbag without straps, it's clutched in the hand.

    2) "off guard" = unprepared, by surprise

    If you're still puzzled then let us know where the difficulty is.
    Please write "please", not "plz".

    Also, "feet" is a unit of measure for length, about one-third of a meter.
