I think I have reasonable expectations of quality…I expect that leggings I paid $150 for would not start falling apart months after getting them. I exaggerate, they didn’t start falling apart, only the stitching at the waistband started unraveling (a lot) about a week ago. Yeah, that happened. I took them to my alterations lady and she fixed them, and re-enforced them for me, for about $7. No big deal, but should it have happened in the first place?
I’m writing a longer piece on this as we speak, so more on this later, but I still love these leggings, and I still recommend them, I just wonder if there is such a thing as an expectation of quality anymore….
Oh, and about this top. Aside from the obvious dissheveled look I have going on (I don’t own an iron, or a steamer – you know I don’t own anything that needs ironing! except for this top…), I LOVE LOVE LOVE this top and highly recommend it. Especially since it’s $36 at Isaay.com right now with code CLOTHING60 for 60% off (ALL SALES FINAL!!!). Well, not this color, but a really nice plaid. I love everything about this top, but mostly that it’s super-long in the back. It’s basically a mullet. It’s also very soft; so comfortable to wear.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a discussion on quality – in the mean time, share your thoughts. Do you have any expectation of quality anymore? or do you just have a really good go-to seamstress??
