"Checkm8" (CheckmEIGHT)

There is no escaping it.

It's everywhere.

On the runways ...

On Hollywood's hottest fashion icons ...

On the music world's current "It" girl ...

But if that isn't enough to infect you with Plaid Fever, how 'bout the fact that Hayden Christensen has been nicknamed the "Plaid Prince"? ;)

To all Plaid Princess hopefuls (and plaid-lovers) out there, this review is for you. :)

Here are 8 gorgeous pieces in a mixture of...





Shopaholics Unite!

"Checks Please"

Truth be told, this was the outfit that inspired this checkered review! :D

Your Shopping Kaki is madly in love with this plaid linen fitted blazer, but her financer found the price to be a wee bit too steep, and we decided to go all "if you love it, let it go" on it.

But isn't that good news for a lucky plaid-lover out there who hasn't already seen this masterpiece on Shopaholics Unite? ;)

*Psst... check out their site for a whole array of freshly updated argyle goodies too!*

"Purple Checkers"

The classic picnic-in-the-playground checkered design!

Update this classic look with your favourite waist cincher or belt, and you're all set to pull off the casual (but trendy) Sunday style. :)

Couple Birds

"Lollipop 20"

One of the blogshopsphere's favourite vintage e-shops has brought us one of the classic plaid patterns! :) This black-n-white beauty has two parallel rows of buttons that remind me of double-breasted trenchcoats that are all the hype these days - so why not combine the now with the newly revived vintage style of yester year? ;)



"The Scottish Tartan"

Handmade bows galore! :D Baboobeep will feed your hunger for the bow trend, with a pretty tartan twist! What an adorable way to make even your simplest outfits so interesting! <3

Suay Mak Mak


A corset-inspired structured tank top in pretty checkers, Suay Mak Mak has done it again! :)

The frills and lace lend that perfect amount of over-the-topness that makes fashion fun - and babes, you know that fully smocked back is going to flatter your figure like crazy! :D Straps are also adjustable for height.

Closet Characters

"Plaid Red" (or Cast 55)

Instant love.

A vintage plaid vest with a reasonable price tag, this piece here is a rare find indeed! If you appreciate plaids and vintage, this may just be the perfect buy for you. :)

Free size with an adjustable back, so it should fit sizes S to XL, but Your Shopping Kaki does advise you to enquire for measurements before any purchase! :)

Sweet Toothsome
*Psstt... read below for this week's YSK-readers-only special offer!!*

Normal price: RM35
Your Shopping Kaki readers-only price: RM31.50 (after 10% discount)

A structured, fitting tube top with a sweetheart bustline and insanely cute buttons - which, at the same time, stays loyal to today's checkered theme! :D It even has a side zipper and straps which are both detachable and adjustable - as well as a smocked back for a better fit.

How to get the discount?

Simply e-mail Sweet Toothsome with some feedback:
1) What do you think of Sweet Toothsome?
2) How can they improve?

Shoes Zilla

"Plaid Oxfords"

Love love love love love!

Oxfords are already gorgeous, but mix it up with plaid, and you get an explosive combination that is nearly impossible for a shopaholic to resist!

Only one last pair remaining in Size 36/5, so I hope one of Your Shopping Kaki's readers will be the lucky one to get this gorgeous pair of heels! Aah! Rooting for you! :D


And there you have it, a checkered/tartan/plaid review that pays tribute to one of the most popular styles around, and one which Your Shopping Kaki is a great fan of as well! :)

Note to dearest blogshop owners, if you've got something gorgeous that is checkered, plaid or tartan, leave a comment below so that readers who want more can check out your e-shops too. :D Remember to leave your blogshop URL!

With that said, have a wonderful weekend, everyone! :)

Happy Shopping!
Your Shopping Kaki :)
