森ガールFashion and Style Book. Choco is credited by many to be one of the initial forces behind the mori girl fashion, and I think with good reason! To her, "forest wear" isn't just the pale colors of winter, but all the different colors of the seasons!!
While a lot of these are more muted (please buy the book to see the other fuller colored coordinates! It's worth the money!), they reflect in a lovely way the changing of seasonal colors. Spring and summer have the more full-bodied shades of things like flowers and the blue sky, but keep the mori atmosphere with the use of draping natural fabrics (spring), knits and the popular boater hat (summer). While autumn and winter are certainly more muted than the other seasons, she still uses greens, yellows, rich browns, and blues to create seasonal color. Her layering and use of knit outerwear, uneven hemlines, and scarves create a relaxed atmosphere, but still have that bit of quirk that the original mori girl provisions suggested.
Rock on, little mori girls!
I love this coordinate!! This is an add for the COCUE brand from the SPOON December 2009 森ガール insert. I think it's nice because often mori girls complain about there being a lack of color in the style, but this shows really nicely how rich shades can be coordinated, and still feel a little whimsical. For those who are more fond of the lighter creams and browns, this could also be coordinated very easily. I personally would add another skirt or stole, but it's still cute like this! ♥
Welcome to "the little forest girl". This is a little blog about fashion, travel, crafty-things and life. I go by Bee, and I'm a 22 year old female, about to finish college and make my way out into the world. I love mori girl and dolly-kei fashion, sociology, music of all types, and Jane Austen books to name a few of many interests.
At a later time I'll update this entry so that it has more about myself, but it seems kind of narcissistic to have the (currently) only entry in this thing to just spew on about me. :) So for now, thanks for popping in.
