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.

So Sick of Winter

Announcement: Last day of Jennyfleur Loves Boutique Mega sale! Go check it out, even if it's just during your lunch break.

It has been so foggy that past few days, contributing to a 12-day no rain streak.

No fog now, but instead, replaced by much more obvious form of precipitation.

I am so tired of this weather. I wish I was back in California, or just anywhere that would allow me to not dress in layers.

Figures, just when I am determined to step outdoors to try my self portraiting skills, typical Vancouver weather heavily stifles my plans.

No matter, indoor dress up play it will have to be for awhile longer.

Since I am shielded from the elements, why not dress like I have been wanting to?

These are the bright elements I choose.

Neon pink lita style shoes, neon spikey bracelet, romwe lighting tights, unif dolla long sleeved tshirt, marc jacobs scarf

Unif Dollar sign long sleeved tshirt from Jennyfleur Loves Boutique. For a more similar weather appropriate version, see here.

Neon Lita style platform boots. I bought those online and under the impression that they would be much less neon. For a more subdued version, see here.

Marc Jacobs scarf, see here.

Romwe Lightning Print Leggings

Perhaps being indoors right now isn't too bad.

Gives me more practice with posing and setting the camera settings properly.

But I still miss the sun dearly.

So I will perform my own version of some sun dance.

Darn... I guess it didn't really work.

Oh wells, more indoor photo taking practice it is.

I just wish the background was a tad more interesting.
