I somehow continually manage to surprise myself when cheaply-made clothing doesn't last as long as I think it should. For instance, when one purchases(for arguments sake) a pair of leopard-printed denim for $21.95 & is devastated when it doesn't last as long as its more expensive counterpart. I fell head over heels for the J.Brand equivalent, but just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on leopard-printed denim (not to mention the grief I would have gotten from the manpanion). After 10 or so washes, these jeans have completely broken down & hardly hold form long enough for me to blow dry my hair in the morning! Does this happen to anyone else out there???
