Can a pair of leggings change your life? I'm going to venture a yes with these. I bought the ubiquitous 'Black Rats' a week ago and I haven't stopped wearing them or wanting to wear them since. You don't get the 'baggy knee' thing which is so often annoying with leggings because the whole leg is ruched, baggy knee just adds to the effect. I tried on the Topshop version but they were plain jersey and just didn't quite do the same job. There is a lot of fabric in them, which is a treat for my 34" legs and goes some way to justifying the £100 price tag (£97.88 after VAT which makes all the difference). Plus they are somewhat waterproof as I learnt when I tipped half a pint of cider over myself on Thursday night. I tried the PVC version on in Urban Outfitters. Conclusion: they are amazing. For an S&M party, but maybe a little too much for real life. I set off their new alarm system in the process. The things I do for this blog.

I thought I need heels but the look equally as good with flats which just gives me more excuses to wear them


  1. Arggh, I am so jealous of you right now. I have been staring at them on ASOS all week trying to justify it in my head, but then I'm like "£100 for a pair of leggings, STOP BEING SILLY" but they're just so good. I may cave soon.

  2. Ahhh your legs look so fabulous in them. I'm jealous as i could never pull them off in a million years.

  3. Thanks Hannah.

    Nikki, my staff discount impacted a lot on my decision, I don't think I would have bought them if I had to pay full price.

  4. wow i saw them in urban a couple of months ago too, couldn't find my size though! theyre so amazing the fabric is lovely! you're so lucky! :)

  5. those look fantastic! for everyday too. i am so jealous, i could never pull those off!
