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.

WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN BLAGAJ ( BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)

I truly enjoy showing you around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Have you noticed that? You know, there are some really amazing destinations in this country. Today I'll take you to beautiful Blagaj, located only a short drive from Mostar city. Blagaj is a picturesque historical village located in Herzegovina region. This little green river oasis is an increasingly popular tourist destination and not without a reason. Blagaj village has got one of the strongest and most beautiful river springs in Europe. This stunning and potent water spring creates Buna river and is a impressive example of karst river formation. Right next to it you can find a historical dervish house (tekija) that is open all year round. 
The dervish house dates back to the sixteenth century.  It placed right next to the entrance to the cave  where the river Buna springs from and it is an incredible site. The cliff over the cave is a very impressive sight as well! You can even go for a boat ride in the cave and see this…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…
