Lately, since it is not tropical in here anymore, I have been up to much simplier outfits. And I feel oh, so good and comfortable.

With the trousers and T-shirt, I can’t help but think about Lisa from Miyazaki’s latest feature, 'Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea’. She has become my second favourite anime heroine after Misato Katsuragi and these two are surprisingly similar. From the very beginning I saw Lisa in the film, I thought she must have been inspired by Misato. Her own son calls her by her name, her driving is awful, she is drinking GOOD amounts of alcohol and she is SO moody as far as her relationship is concerned yet she is an awesome mum. I have googled the film and I am not alone in my reflections. People don’t really think though that it was an inspiration but rather a new tendency for depicting women in anime. I actually doubt it, Hideaki Anno (of Gainax, people who made Evangelion) worked for Miyazaki in the past and those two know each other. To me Lisa is a straight-forward quotation from Evangelion.

Lisa is, of course, the adult one.

You could wonder why I’m bragging about cartoons and why is it so important that I had to tired you all with it. Well, I’m actually doing my dissertation on Miyazaki, the exact topic being 'Hayao Miyazaki – a feminist director? Miyazaki’s animated films and feminist film theory’.
It is actually amazing how my plans have changed. First year I was sure I want to write it on mafia films such as 'Godfather’ and 'Goodfellas’. Second year I planned to analyze moral relativism in TV series such as 'Dexter’ and 'Sopranos’. And when the time came, under strong influence of Karen Lury and Robert Maslen I realized I cannot write it on anything else than anime, about which I can talk for hours.

So here I am, being 22 and inspired by a cartoon character.

Yet there is still a little surprise about my jeans…

  1. No nie.. ten naszyjnik mnie prześladuje. Najpierw Styledigger, teraz Ty, a ja nie mogę go nigdzie dostać…

    Ale widzę, że nie pozostaję jedyną osobą z takim problemem;)

    Wyglądasz tak swobodnie i naturalnie na tym zdjęciu!

  2. Your dissertation sounds uber-original!
    Love the idea 🙂

    I actually have a friend who’s writing her dissertation about feminism as well (she’s studying law though, so slightly different perspective) and now she tells me things like:
    „sometimes I walk down the street, look at men and think 'ah, those bastards..!’ ” 😀

    How can you reply to that really..?! 😀

  3. naszyjnik rządzi! a lato ma wrócić w weekend… mam nadzieję, bo mam plany plenerowe… ps mam znajomą graficzkę zupełnie zafascynowaną Miyazaki’m (tak się odmienia?), jak znajdę jakieś jej prace na necie to podeślę linka, może Ci się spodoba 🙂 ps2 ale przynajmniej pada mnie niż w zeszłe 'lato’!?

  4. you get to choose such interesting topics for your dissertation!

    really love your necklace and you always look so chic in your headbands, they suit you very well 🙂
