I'm sure it's quite obvious that I'm not really a pants person. I would rather wear a dress or skirt any day of the week, but every once in a blue moon I spot a pair of pants that makes me downright giddy. When I saw these babies at vintage shop Ver Unica last week I could hardly contain my excitement, especially when I realized they were navy and gold (they looked black at first). And sparkly! And high waisted! SOLD. I changed into them immediately and I just happened to be wearing this striped top, a pretty crazy stripe-on-stripe combo but I'm into it. I might just become a pants enthusiast yet!

P.S. The three winners of the Bohemian Bisoux giveaway have been randomly selected! The $50 gift certificate goes to Cara, and the two $25 gift certificates go to Taylor and Meanz. Congratulations to you ladies!

Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. These trousers are so lovely. They look so retro with the sparkles but you styled them perfectly into this decade. Great look.

I haven't worn pants in nearly 4 years but these sparkly pants would definitely tempt me! Despite being so unusual I can imagine them being quite versatile, especially with layers in the cooler months. Too fun!

There's something so circus-esque about these sparkly pants! Woo wee, you are still HOT even though it's not a cutesy dress you usually throw on ;)

My goodness Ashley, you can wear pants with such a confidence and looking incredibly feminine, I'm impressed! I loved the ones you wore in the yellow coat post with the Ferragamo flats, so chic... but these ones literally rock! Especially paired with more stripes. Love!
