Okay, I want to talk about the quality of this particular capri legging. Grab a coffee and take a seat because I have a story. I have spatial awareness...issues. If there is a crack in a sidewalk, somehow my foot will find it, and I will trip. I can be ten feet away from a wall and still crash into it with very little effort. Basically, if I look at some part of my body and see a bruise, I don't wonder why I have it, just how or which incident caused it.
One day I was out for a walk in the fair city in which I live. The city has been in, ah, financial distress for quite some time, and sidewalk maintenance isn't high on the list of priorities. I sidestepped a large crack to avoid tripping...and slipped on a patch of black ice. It was an awful fall--the kind that, were I six years old, I'd be screaming incoherently about my imminent death. But I'm an adult, so I just cursed and whimpered to myself for a bit. Assessed the damages, decided nothing was broken--scraped palms and knees...and that's when I realized that one knee had a blossoming circle of blood, growing larger by the second.
I made it to my car where I discovered my emergency kit was NOT THERE. So I pulled a Jupiter Jones--yanked up my legging and slapped a maxi pad on a 3mm deep gash that was about the width of a quarter. And then pulled the legging down over the maxi pad to hold it in place.
That's when I realized it: MY KNEE HAD A GIANT GASH IN IT BUT MY LEGGINGS WERE TOTALLY FINE. NOT A SINGLE RIP.
So...basically I'm saying that if you could somehow add kevlar to these, they would be the PERFECT LEGGINGS for the most clumsy person on the planet.
(Oh, and yes, the blood washed out just fine.)
