Wild flowers, wild pants

So flowers are like a huge trend right now, right? I'm not really a flowery kinda girl but last spring I picked up a pair of libertine print skinny trousers from ss04 Balenciaga and lately I've been wearing them to death, paired with a longish sheer tee, black bra, and my favorite vintage leather motorcycle jacket. I think the reason why the print works for me is because it has a black background (as opposed to being all floral which is how most libertine prints go) and so it's easy to work with tees and black leather which is standard winter wear for me. Also, it reminds me of this morbid little picture book I loved as a kid about a girl who wanders into this really dark and creepy tropical jungle and can't find her way back.



Trust me to be doing a post about Balenciaga SS04 when everyone else on the planet is talking FW08 right...

I am not a big fan of florals but this collection I totally enjoyed.. and maybe it is because it's all on a black background too.
Also your outfit creates such a great visual, amazing style.

I love the S/S 04 collection! I hadn't seen it before (I've been slowly trawling through past collections), but those florals are absolutely perfect.
