CHECKS? CHECK.



 I've been mixing and mis-matching different checked patterns; my scarf as a wrapped sort-of cardi and checked pants.



 (Yes you read that right; pants, trousers*.)



I topped it all of with a checked jacket.

*) There will never be the day though that a ready-made pair has enough room in the hip and fit my waist int he same time, even now with some left over baby chub they are too loose waist-wize. If I want a pair to fit perfectly and also be comfy I will have to go custom. And why not...

For those with a hip-waist problem, try something that, yes, is not vintage, but will fit you perfectly. Levi's jeans. They make a line called Bold Curve, that has a tiny-tiny waist and wide hipline. As feminine as a pair of pants can get. And comfy as hell.
