COLORBLOCK: Green & Red (not for Christmas!)


Hi everyone, back with a new look!
I've been a huge fan of colorblocking and I think this trend will last until along this year, in any season whether it's spring/summer or fall/winter. I've been digging my mom's clothes over and over, and found this Tosca green Medieval-like blouse with the shocking red suede skirt. I found these at Christmas so I thought it would be a great idea to post a look at Christmas Day. But it turned out that I couldn't possibly even blogging at Christmas Day due to tons of church activity - it was so terribly hectic. So I delay this green-red theme look until now.

When we see these color: red & green, we must be directly associate it with Christmas. It is the power of symbol: to associate with something bigger. We associate (for example) Pink with Valentine or other romance feeling, Red and Gold with Chinese New Year or other Chinese theme, etc. Symbol is one of the most powerful medium to communicate something, and even there's a branch of science that specifically study in symbols or signs: Semiotics. I've been so much interested in semiotics lately, especially when it comes to semiotics in movies. I should write about this some other time, after finish reading the book hehe...




(Above) Take a closer look to the lion on the belt...

To add some twist, I added my tartan blazer (check my previous look)
 At the end of the story, I threw the tartan blazer away haha..

  5. I'm totally in support of taking back green and red. It's such a nice color combination and there's no reason we should only get to wear it one time of year.

  11. I am so impressed how you actually did red and green and made it not look Christmasy! I know what you mean about colour blocking (although I am so completely sick with the term!)- my favourite colours to colour block for spring are actually pink and red (despite always being told that they don't go together!)

  15. I think because the pieces you used are such timeless pieces, they don't look too Christmas-y, so you can get away with green and red with this outfit!
