Form vs. Function

Today's outfit actually sparked some dialogue from the boyfriend.

See anything unusual?

What about now?

That's right, I am wearing two belts. The same belts in fact in opposite colours.

I put it on and boyfriend was shocked that I was serious about wearing it out.

He went on a long "rant" about how in fashion, form has long eclipsed function. These belts serve no other purpose than to decorate my mid torso.

The fact that I would layer two ostentatious belts together is a huge statement in supporting that argument.

I am also wearing two scarves, tied together to add more volume.

And also warmth, so I would say that is both form and function.

When you move south, I am wearing my leggings with my maxi skirt.

Definitely more function than form. I would much rather wear this the way it should be worn, with a pair of hairless bare legs.

I believe this is a place to blend form and function. Much like these belts, circling each other and representing both the Ying and Yang.

But then, we have these sometimes.

Now I am speechless.
