Emerald City + A Blog Hop

I imagine some of you have been pretty skeptical of printed pants, I know I was. You might think that I am quick to adopt a new fashion trend, but that's not always the case. Printed pants were something I vacillated on, for the last year actually. I like the idea of them, but in reality I was very careful when buying them, because I wanted to be positive they would be flattering, and not to mention practical. I am a huge fan of printed trousers right now, even the ones I could never imagine wearing (like these celeb picks). I found these pants, like I find most of my clothes, hanging on a thrift store rack. At first I didn't know if I would like these pants, but they are great! They fit very nicely, and are super comfortable.

Trivia: Did you know the first method used for printing on fabric was woodblock printing? Woodblock printing goes back as far back as 220 AD, and most plausibly originated in China. However, printed fabric was not introduced to Europe until the 12th century. (Source: Wikipedia)

Now, onto the Blog Hop! If you're new to this hop, it's really simple. There is a very short list of directions below, and you can basically link up anything (and everything) you've been working on lately! Whether it's your new favorite recipe, the skirt you just scored on clearance, or your summer playlist, share it all! Also, every week I will be featuring a blogger from the previous week's link-up (You are making it so hard to choose just one!!).

I was skeptical of printed pants at first, too... until I found ones that I loved (in my case, black lace printed).

Love all the black and green together. :)

Still have yet to jump on the printed pants bandwagon. I huge a pair of thunder thighs that are afraid of prints making them look bigger haha. But you are rocking them! get it!

List Addict said...

Loving the printed pant phenomenon at the moment, but on yet to find a pair at a thrift shop that I like. Well done you! They're subtle and make a point of difference. That's the great thing about thrifting, you're never going to look like a fashion clone. Great post and thanks so much for hosting

I'm sceptical about printed pants but mostly because of the size of my but :)

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
