One of my latest purchases, also my latest obsession, are Cynthia Rowley's zig-zag floral bonded leggings. They can be more accurately described as really rad scuba pants, though. You know when the Man Repeller talks about how not all prints are created equally? I think these epitomize what she means.

Aren't they famazing? I was kind of hesitant about getting these pants because I didn't know how much I'd wear them given their vibrant print and neoprene's really hot nature, but when I was able to conjure up five outfits with them in about five seconds, I knew I had to have them. After receiving them last week and already wearing them twice, I'd say it was a great decision. They're a neoprene dream turned into reality. See how I wore them yesterday below:

I'm so glad I didn't run through a crazy rain storm right before taking this picture or anything like that. If you, like I, luurrvvee these, there are more where they came from below.
They all look ridiculously good on. They're so flattering and the prints look even better when on your limbs. For example, the white floral pair. I wasn't a big fan of them, but once I tried them on, I fell in love all over again. My friend also asked me if I had goldfishes coming out of my vageen, that was funny. But anyway, you can shop the zig-zag florals here or here, the white ones here, and the black botanical pair hither. You should also scroll down some and check out Cynthia Rowley's awesome ad campaign. It's one of my favorite campaigns and no, not just because my pair o'pants are featured.

It's pretty great, no? The top is actually on sale at Barneys, you can get it here. I thought about getting it also, but a full-on printed neoprene ensemble sounds like a very sweaty situation. Oh! Also check out this interview Barney's did with Cynthia, she is one cool chick. Happy Thursday errbady!
