There's a difference between knick and knack. Well, at least I forced a connection between the two. Anyways knick one relates to accepting less than what I want. I'm always on the hunt for a good pair of high waisted pants/shorts. Wouldn't really settle for less before. Now, totally okay with high rise instead. Learning how to accept mid rise but no-can-do on the low rise. Most of the pants I have bought in the past couple of months have been high rise and they're a pretty good fit. I thought it'd make me look stupid but it actually looks better than high waisted.
Basically, get on that variety thing.
