I FOUND THEM!: The perfect leather trousers

Faux leather skinny trousers £40: RIVER ISLAND

*high pitched singing voice* Haaaaaallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.  Ahem, anyway... Look, look!  If you've read my blog before, or even my Twitter feed, you're probably aware of my long, unsuccessful search to find the perfect skinny leather trousers, which has been going on for some time now.  However, the search finally came to end yesterday when I spotted these babies in River Island.  Spending ban?  What spending ban?  I just saw these on one of the mannequins and then ran to find them and try them on.  Oh boy, am I pleased with them.  I didn't want leggings as I still wanted the pocket detail and for them to still be slightly baggy, but still have most of that painted-on effect.  This pair definitely tick all of the boxes for me, so I can't say I feel guilty about purchasing them.  I will be wearing them a ridiculous amount of times from now on, especially seeing as they will go with literally every top in my wardrobe.  Tees, jumpers, shirts and blouses... EVERY SINGLE ONE.  Breathe, breathe... I am so pleased that they are slightly high-waisted, too, as that wasn't a necessity for me but it's definitely a bonus. 
What size I buy for my bottom half depends on which shop I'm buying from.  In Topshop I'm pretty much always a 10, but in places such as Zara and River Island I need to size up, so I tried on these in a 12 (the last pair in that size, too) and they fitted perfectly plus a bit of extra room (so I don't need to worry about eating my massive dinners whilst wearing them...).  Oh, and they're not too shiny either... Man, the list could go on and on.
Are you digging leather trousers at the moment?  Do you own a pair?  I just want to throw on a band tee and paint my nails black and just be a total rock chick.  (She says whilst watching Countdown).
