    "I have been wearing these pants for years and, honestly, I will never stop. I own them in multiple different colours and I'm not kidding when I say they last forever. Yes, it's stupid how much they cost, but by the time I ruin these, I would have gone through, like, six pairs of cheap leggings. They've never pilled on me and they stretch like a dream (which is great when I have a bit of a PMS bloat). —Alice Prendergast
