Mori Girls

If the word 'Quirky' were a country, it would definitely be Japan & that's why I love it! Besides it's amazing history & culture (including subculture), I'm madly in love with Japanese crafts or what is also known as Zakka. I try not to fall for things that are too kawaii but some things just can't be helped! Sigh.

Anyways, while blog hopping today, I somehow found myself in a little gem of a blogspot simply called Mori Girl. What IS a Mori Girl you find yourself asking? Well... "Mori Girls (森ガール) belong to a Japanese subculture. 'Mori' means forest in Japanese, and mori girls look like fairytale forest wanderers in their loose dresses, vintage prints and quaint accessories. Mori girls choose to live their lives on their own terms, stopping to appreciate the little things that others overlook amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life."

Intriguing, yes? Let me illustrate....

I just love the quaintness of this style! As my bestie Farhan would put it, "soooooooo Mimpi!"
