Midnight Dreams

When I saw these high waisted BCBGeneration pants, it reminded me of my dreams: Gloomy, mysterious, and usually scattered without a beginning nor end…

I have passed up these pants over a dozen times on my secret lunch trips to Bloomingdales because I thought the prints were just a little too crazy for me. A couple of weeks ago, on another secret mission to one of my fave department stores, these pants popped up again. Feeling like my dreams are now trying to haunt me at my happiest place on earth (wtf?).

…I gave in. Tried on these things and fell in love with the silky material and the way it flows and moves as I paced around the fitting room. I wore them last week running around, but they are so soft and comfy I could practically sleep in them. I guess dark and gloomy dreams are not so bad after-all. :)
