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.

  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.

WHAT IS AN IDEAL MAXI DRESS FOR A SUMMER VACATION?

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…

STYLING A YELLOW JUMPSUIT FOR SUMMER ( BAY TORAC, ISLAND HVAR)

How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…

A PRINTED DRESS FOR CATCHING A FERRY IN SUCURAJ, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)

What to wear when you're travelling? In summer, I often opt for print dresses because they are fun and seem to go well with anything. I packed quite a few printed dresses for my visit to island Hvar (Croatia). As long as the dresses are comfortable, they are my 'go to' travel outfit. This mixed print dress is one of my favourite travel summer dresses. You have seen me wear it a lot on this blog, especially for hiking and sightseeing (and you know I believe in shopping one's closet). It's a great day to night dress as well, quite easy to dress up and down. My outfit proposal of the day is more casual in tone so you could said that I dressed the dress down. The shoes I choose to go along with this dress are printed sandals from Art brand. I bought them when I was in Split last spring and they're super comfortable (not sponsored).  I also wore a backpack because they are more practical for travelling. I have quite a pragmatic mind when it comes to fashion, and I …
