For some reason I have developed an overwhelming urge to buy myself some sparkly trousers. I have no idea why as I would probably have very few opportunities to wear them. Perhaps it is my sub conscious mind telling me that I should get out more. It all started when I spotted a pair of gold trousers at the Ralph Lauren Spring Summer 09 show. What I really loved about them apart from their sparkliness is the way that they are worn in a semi casual way with a safari style shirt.Then I spied the neon blue trousers at Armand Basi One for ss09. Again very gorgeous but absolutely no where to wear them.

And finally, there were the Stella McCartney Dégradé sequin leggings that reminded me of a sunset with their gorgeous graduating colours. As gorgeous as they are I cannot ever imagine paying that much for a pair of leggings, sparkly or not.
I have managed to find this pair of slightly more affordable sequin trousers by Wisch on Yoox.
Which I think are probably a much more flattering version of the looser sequin trousers. They would look great with a safari style dress or tunic for a Ralph Lauren style outfit of a bit of Sophie Hulme urban disco style.
