This just in…Girlfriend Collective leggings.
Hey, Girlfriend have you heard the news. A new clothing line featuring eco-friendly, made responsibly leggings. Are you in? Well yes, of course! I’m sitting here, staring at my computer, eating a tasty veggie burrito & sipping on some Skinny Girl. Supposedly it’s National Burrito Day…and I’m wondering how to describe these fantastic pants.
My aunt sent me an email back in January sharing the news about free leggings. BLINK! She heard from her daughter (my cousin) who already owns a pair of these smooth black cats. WHAT! How can you say NO? I didn’t. Heck, what’s another pair of black leggings…minimalism goals & free leggings goals 🙂 AND!!! They are made out of plastic bottles. Yes! How many people drank from my pants? Girlfriend Collective, [takes post consumer water bottles, removes the tops & stickers shred the bottles into mini tiny chips. Then, process those itsy chips into minuscule, extremely soft fibers & this becomes their yarn. The yarn becomes the leggings] in which I’m wearing as I type.
So I dig deeper, I go to the website and order a pair. Yep, free pair of leggings, with a small glitch noted immediately by the company. The shipping and handling is $20.00. But wait, this is all because they are shipped from Vietnam & need to go through customs. A lot of traveling these little beauties do. Yes, this is right, traveling from Vietnam.
Hanoi, Vietnam to be exact. The factory where these satiny leggings started their debut. From the GFC tag, “The factory, made in our SA8000 certified factory…specializes in high-end knits. our leggings are lovingly constructed by people who know their stuff. To top it off, they provide fair wage, safe & happy workplace as well.” I love when I know where my clothes came from. Girlfriend Collective launched their line this winter. The full line is coming this spring. I am so happy to be writing about Girlfriend Collective and sharing the joy of these flirty black leggings, and excited for the rest of the fashion line.
I check the mail March 22 and THEY. ARE. HERE!!! I am so ecstatic I don’t even open the cute white envelope with lovely GIRLFRIEND COLLECTIVE typography stamped on the package. I send a picture to my aunt instead & wait a day. The next day is like Christmas morning. I strategically paw at the envelope, touch, photograph, & try them on immediately. Image the woman laying on her bed pulling on her tight jeans. Yep, that’s me. The slick pants fit like a glove. Tight, sultry, smooth. Woah! They feel slippery and ultra soft. Not soft like a puppy, but soft like a seal. AND, puppy fur does not adhere to these pants. Dog fur brushes off so easily, this is my favorite quality of these leggings. BONUS! The pants also have a little pocket on the inside of the back for your key or money while your out and about showing off your new “girlfriends.”
My first look is an athleisure look for work. Throwing over a striped dress and my rain boots. The next day I teach yoga in them. Bendy, strong, irresistible. They don’t stretch too much. These girlfriend’s contort to my figure, rocking my curves. I love the seams, the line in the leg. The waist is high, not what I am used to…but slowly falling in lust. The material is crafted out of “polyester, recycled, spandex, sheer-proof, and soft as a cloud full of kittens” -GF Collective tag. Beautiful marketing! The third look, I run home grab my pup & take him to the park to walk the trails. These leggings are perfect for the walk. I feel light, breezy, fast.
Detailed washing instructions is also included for the Girlfriend Collective leggings. Love your pants, care for your pants. A cheeky red card which reads, “Thanks, Girlfriend” is included! With all these sweet gestures I feel this company cares about me & the world we live in.
Here are a couple of looks in my “Girlfriend Leggings” having fun, breathing sweet.
