Mori girl 30 day challenge: VI & VII

 


Questions:

VI. What sort of things, outside of fashion, do you consider to be part of a mori girl lifestyle?

Non-flash photography, fairytale books, woodlands park strolls,  the great outdoor music, National Geographic magazines, vintage collections,  and old-fashioned baked breads (no electrical oven, rare for me to encounter such bread!).  All of these activities have been my personal interests before I even knew what mori is. XD


VII. are you also a lolita? I find a lot of mori girls do lolita as well! whether you are or aren’t a lolita, why do you think this is?

As much as I love frills, lace and full skirts; nope, I am not a lolita (nor the nymphet from Vladmir Nabokov's novel). I do have a bit of rockabilly, mod 60s, classic punk, and Molly Ringwald's character from Pretty and Pink styles in my wardrobe.

I don't know why some lolitas are into mori-kei styles, but all I do know is that almost any down-to-earth gal can be quite charmed by mori girl gowns and coordinates.Like me. :)

Mori Girl 30 day challenge: Days 1, 2 & 3

Found this tag from ShadyOaks, so credits to her for creating this list!

1. Naturally, our first question is how did you get into mori girl?

While I did chewed up my plastic Barbies and sang "Material Girl", my whole life I've always been interested in some down-to-earth interests and activities(hiking, animals, etc.). I remembered even liking clothes from pictures of old fairy tale characters. It was just a few years ago since I discovered a name of this particular interest/ lifestyle.

2. Who is/are your mori girl idols? who inspires your fashion?

Nobody specific at the moment. Perhaps some of my elementary school teachers? :3

3- Have you ever lived in a rural environment? if you have, do you think it influenced your mori-ness? if you never have,  do you think living in a suburban or urban environment influenced your style any?

Something like that, yes, but not quite secluded as some other towns in the Wine Country, California. Before residing in a suburban neighborhood, I lived  with/near my grandparents during my elementary school years. They had an interesting large yard around their house-- oak trees, willow trees, mud, frogs, deep ditches, tall grass, unpaved driveways, organic veggies, and chickens. Although I didn't wear a lot of long skirts as a child,  the mori lifestyle makes me nostalgic of my child hood. Plus, the city-town I've been living in has quite a bohemian community. So, it can be uncommon to find people in down-to-earth clothing or people looking boho-chic.
