Sea Child (outfit post) / Dijete mora (odjevna kombinacija)










 




"What she remembered best of childhood was the sea excursions. Something about what being afloat spoke to her most basic self. Lift and fall of the waves, the sense of unbounded horizons with strange new places just beyond the curved limits of a watery world, that trilling edge of danger implicit in the very substance that supported her. All of it combined to assure her she was a Sea Child." Chapter House: Dune, Frank Herbert.
Some people regard SF as a trivial form of literature. I take the opposite view. Not that I believe that all SF is brilliant, that would be silly. Nevertheless, most of my favourite novels belong either to SF or fantasy...and I'm not at all ashamed to admit it. Spending five years at a University studying literature hasn't changed my view. Studying reinforced my love of classics but did nothing to change my love for all kinds of works of literature. Some of my childhood favourites are still precisely that. Favourites. It remains a good reminder that for art there are no limits. Deep within us there is this need to classify everything. Sometimes that need makes us blind...and more than a little silly. Balancing on strange currents....We humans are quite capable of that, but alas we tend to forget it.

* The photos were taken in July, during a ferry ride from Starigrad (island Hvar) to Split. The outfit I don't feel like commenting, you've seen me wearing this New Yorker  dress and Azel sneakers often enough.


 " Ono čega se najbolje sjećala iz svoga djetinstva bijahu izleti na more. Nešto u bivanju na moru govorilo je njenom najdubljem ja. Podizanje i spuštanje valova, osjećaj beskrajnih horizonta sa neobičnim novim mjestima odmah iza zakrivljenih linija vodenog svijeta, taj uzbudljiv rub opasnosti očit u samoj tvari koja ju je nosila. Sve se to skupilo da bi je uvjerilo da je ona Dijete Mora." Chapter House: Dune, Frank Herbert. (naslov preveden kao Kapitol Dina kod nas)

Neki ljudi smatraju da je znanstvena fantastika trivijalna književnost. Moje je mišljenje sasvim suprotno. Ne da vjerujem da je sva ZF brilijanta, to bi bilo blesavo. No, većina mojih omiljenih romana ipak pripada tom žanru ( i fantastici)....i uopće se ne sramim to priznati. Pet godina studiranja književnosti nije promijenilo moje mišljenje. Proučavanje klasika navelo me da ih volim više, ali nije učinilo da SF (i druge nepriznate književne vrste) volim manje. Neke od knjiga koje su mi bile najdraže u djetinstvu još su uvijek upravo to: moje najdraže knjige. To ostaje dobar podsjetnik da u umjetnosti nema granica. Duboko u nama postoji ta potreba da klasificiramo sve.  Ponekad nas ta potreba osljepljuje...i čini nas poprilično blesavima. Održavanje ravnoteže na neobičnim strujama...Mi ljudi smo sposobni za to, ali nažalost to često zaboravljamo.

* Fotografije su srpanjske, sa vožnje trajektom od Starigrada (na Hvaru) do Splita. Odjevnu kombinaciju ne bih posebno komentirala, vidjeli ste me u ovim patikama i haljini puno puta.

    1. Da, sasvim moguće, što se mene tiče nekako je najbolja ona famozna trojka (Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke) + R. Zelanzy (koji je poznat i po fantastici), a relativno nedavno otkriće je za mene bila Ursula K. Le Guin, baš me je oduševila sa romanom The Left Hand of Darkness- to mi je možda najbolja psihološka studija razlike među spolovima ikada.

      Što se fantastike tiče, mislim da će mi tu broj jedan uvijek biti Tolkien, a od ovih novijih samo su mi dva baš nekako sjela: Guy Gavriel Kay i Martin. Čitala sam još par njih koji su mi se dopali, ali nisu me baš oduševili.

  11. Haljina i patike su mi jedna od omljenih kombinacija :) Divne su slike i tvoj osmeh :) Nisam neki ljubitelj SF, mada sve zavisi od faze u kojoj sam ;)

  12. Bas me odusevljavas svojim nacinom razmisljanja! Ne mogu bas nista nadodati na ove zadnje recenice o klasificiranju i da umjetnost nema granica...
    Mozda bas zato sto sam se uvijek jezila nekakve klasifikacije, spadanja u grupe/ kutije, whatever, sam izabrala fotografiju kao svoj zivotni poziv... Mjesto koje nema granica i koje ne zelim i necu nikad klasificirati.

    1. Da, to je možda ta prednost fotografije kao relativno mlade umjetnosti, nema u njoj toliko tih podjela. No sa druge strane čini mi se da je ljudi još ne cijene dovoljno, barem ne kod nas.

  13. Oh, I love such trips a lot. Those pictures are so appealing and interesting, I'm really glad for you that you just took time and had such a wonderful sea excursion. I also like the way you look in that dress, it fits you like a glove:)
    By the way, I was never actually fond of SF, but I absolutely understand those ones who love such reading. Books are something what impossible to replace and I do believe there is the right book for every one of us.

  14. Bodycon dress and sneakers- Freaking awesome :)!! You look great and beautiful shots.

    Aha, you studied literature, that explains your love for art, reading and writing. That is neat and very impressive. Hmm... the human mind is so complicated. I would hate to be a mind reader :)). I think we often lose ourselves in ourselves and our thoughts but sometimes what we see is just really simply what it is :).

  15. I don't really read science fiction but I know that people seem to love different genres. Books they love can elicit all sorts of feelings/emotions from the reader and therefore its very presumptuous to write off a whole genre of books. We all like our own type of books and therefore every book is just as important based on the effect it has on the reader. Books aside, that figure girl is amazing. And the view is just peacefully beautiful

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: INSPIRED BY SUMMER STYLE

Time for another FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY! Today I'll share four fashion illustrations with you. The medium for all these four illustrations is coloured pencils on A4 regular printing paper.  The materials used weren't anything fancy, but I still wanted to share these. I drew two of these sketches without a specific reference. The outfits illustrated were a product of my imagination. However, the other two fashion illustrations were drawn with a reference. I was inspired by two fashion bloggers and I drew the summer outfits they were wearing. The illustrations are drawn in classical proportions, not elongated ones that I often use for fashion sketches. I do draw in different styles, sometimes the choice of style depends on the artistic effect I'm going to and sometimes just on  my mood (especially when I'm not doing anything particulary ambitious). Scroll down to see and read more!

14 WAYS TO STYLE ONE BLUE DENIM SKIRT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…

HOW I GOT INSPIRED BY D&G AUTUMN/WINTER 2019/2020 COLLECTION? (PART 1)

Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…
