Elise here, I’ll be contributing to this blog as resident nail polish addict. My collection is somewhere upwards of 200.


(This isn’t actually all of them – I still have three small drawers to sort.)

That being said, I’ve always been a tomboy and I like to keep things easy and cost-effective. I’ll be focusing on easy nail art and techniques and swatches/reviews of my favorite reasonably-priced products, with a side of anything else of relevance I think of to contribute.

Aside from nail polish, I volunteer at an animal shelter, play too many video games, cosplay and attend conventions, enjoy the occasional craft beer, and read anything I can get my hands on.


As I enter my mid-twenties, the “form” component of “form and function” has become more important to me. Getting mistaken for a high school kid gets tiresome, so even though I dress casually most days and don’t wear much makeup, I take care of myself better than I did when I actually was in high school. I try to keep a happy medium between being comfortable and looking presentable. My main methods of choice are a pixie cut and perfect nails – both go a long way.

Thanks for reading, I’m looking forward to contributing!



Form /fôrm/ (noun)

early 13c., from Old French forme “physical form, appearance, pleasing looks; shape, image,” from Latin forma “form, contour, figure, shape; appearance, looks’ model, pattern, design; sort, kind condition”

Function /ˈfəNGkSHən/ (noun)

1530s, “proper work or purpose,” from Middle French fonction (16c.) and directly from Latin functionem (nominative functio) “performance, execution,” noun of action fromfunctus, past participle of fungi “perform, execute, discharge,” from PIE root *bheug- (2) “to use, enjoy”

Form and Function Fashion is a blog for women who prefer multi-dimensional clothing and beauty. If you have never quite been “one of the girls,” but also want to differentiate yourself from the crowd and promote a practical yet confident image, then this blog is perfect for you.

Here at F&F we will seek to promote feminine or androgynous products that maximize cost-effectiveness, comfort, and style. We do not cater to a specific “look” and support a range of body types, gender norms, brands, and designs. We will be covering everything from clothing to skin care to hair & make-up.

I would like to hereafter designate “Cost, Comfort, and Style” (“CCS”) as the Trifecta of Fashion and will be concentrating on these three areas in future posts. I hope that my tips will be useful and have broad appeal for the modern woman. Feel free to leave comments with suggestions or links (within reason, some self-promotion okay) you feel may contribute to the discussion.

Welcome to Form and Function Fashion blog. I hope that you find what you are looking for and more. Stay classy, everybody.
