perfect pair?

So I have a thing for trousers. Much like my other preoccupation with skirts (high waist, A line, paperbag, short, long, 3/4 length, you get the picture) I'm on the perennial hunt for the perfect pair, the ones that will change my life. And at least if not that, then a pair which will make my legs appear a good 3 foot longer.  I found this navy blue tapered Bassike pair recently and fell in love with the exaggerated cut on the pockets. I wore them with another sartorial favourite of mine; leopard, or as my mum affectionately terms anything feline print-esque- Kat Slater. I'm afraid only English readers or those familiar with the programme Eastenders will understand this moniker, but look her up, she's all class.
