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.

crazy knits

Now I am speechless.

Some vintage Bottega, red and black

The year of the Water Dragon is well underway.

Celebrations and activities are still going strong. If I was back in China, I would still be on holidays, and will be into my 8th day of wining and dining.

On second thought... nah, still rather be there during this festive time of year.

Maybe these will bring me home...

Bah, one can dream.

I guess I will try my best to celebrate in Vancouver in style.

One traditional act performed to celebrate the new year is shopping! My favourite activity ever.

This year, this baby is my new purchase.

Another goody from Ann's Fabulous Finds. This new to me vintage darling is in like new condition, and buttery soft. Don't let her small stature fool you, she holds everything I need.

The outfit I decided to put together is pretty basic this time.

I wasn't quite done. It is Chinese New Year after all. I found this robe at Salvation Army Thrift Store. The whole outfit is then cinched nicely by my Fendi B Buckle Belt that I got from Second Look Quality Consignment on Granville.

This would have been the perfect outfit to wear for the China town parade. But I had to work. Oh well, maybe next year.

Happy Continued Chinese New Year! One more week to go until the Lantern Festival that marks the end of the celebrations but the beginning of the rest of the prosperous year.
