The Most Beautiful Pants in the World

I'm not really a pants person but the from the first time I saw these until well after I brought them home, I couldn't stop thinking about the pink, pale yellow and coral-orange roses. They remind me of Beauty and the Beast, of summertime and of those weird floral pants from the early 90's.
I saw them three times before I finally buying them. Every time I tried them on I couldn't believe how well they fit with an already broken in softness. And how despite my perception of my lower body, I was wearing white pants and they were the opposite of unflattering.
Of course it always comes down to money. The price was so ridiculous that I still have the tags in my drawer because I'm almost afraid to throw them away, just in case. Not that I could return them, but maybe as a reminder to avoid Bloomingdales. There's truth in that saying, "You get when you pay for." In another one of my justifications for buying them; I now only own three pairs of pants.
Yesterday's outfit featuring The Most Beautiful Pants in the World was directly inspired by the rosy cacophony that is my bed. Also the rose I found that had escaped its bouquet on the floor in a Duane Reade last week. A little messy, very relaxed.

  3. LOL, I love the title of this post. It's even funnier if you think of it, but in the way English people use the word "pants".

    They are really lovely trousers. And they fit so nice!! I'm more of a skirt girl when it comes to blogging, because pants always look so boring in photos. These don't, though!!

  4. Oh, yes -- these are beautiful.  And while I share your reaction to high prices, sometimes an item is worth the splurge.

  5. Catie's point on distinguishing between "pants" and "trousers" reminds me of a humorous episode when a male biker-buddy of mine, living temporarily in Britain, needed new riding gear.  He went into a shop and asked if they sold "leather pants".  They looked at him funny and said "We aren't that kind of store."

  6.  I'm so confused...what does "pants" mean to Brits and how is it possible that I don't know this???

  9. Underwear... I once told my Scottish ex to stop touching my pants (can't remember what for but was something normal) to which his response was "do you always let guys touch your pants?"  Crash course in UK vocabularly. :D

  10. I definitely think that, if you think about it and really want it and will wear it... higher prices are nothing to be ashamed of.  You look lovely. :)

    Wow, those are so incredible gorgeous. I would love a pair of floral pants, but in black. But woah! I'm kinda in love with those. Anything with a floral pattern gets my heart.
