I was collecting things for the whole year - shoes, skirts, dresses ,blouses, ...and it still wasn´t enough to put together a decent mori outfit...until now *_*
Finally I had enough inspiration, self-confidence and a the perfect sweater ! =)
And so I wore my very first mori outfit to buy some groceries, got little carried away and had to buy a few things for crafting more mori things like flowers for headband, buttons and off-white lace...
I have so many ideas on my mind !
To tell the truth I´m little obsessed with everything mori these days (my tumblr followers know). It´s such a cute style, but what I like the most on it is that there is no need for brand or clothes from taobao/ebay or Japan - more DIY the better, second-hand shirts and sweaters are perfect for it and one or two pairs of brown shoes are enough, I think. Also I like the simple make-up and absence of wigs, fake eye-lashes and other things like that - it´s just natural !
So much easier and ...how to say it - kinder to environment and wallet =)
I still need some more accessories and learn new hairstyles (AND grow a long hair), but that will come with time - I already made a floral headband, a bracelet from true acorns and I have a huuuge pile of fabrics for skirts, pants which I want to re-make, and A LOT of yarns for mori projects like crochet poncho or a long cardigan *___*
oh, and for those who don´t know what I´m talking about (which is quite possible - not everyone is an expert in japanese street styles) - take a look here and here or here to see/feel this style´s "atmosphere"
And one more mori-themed thing I want to share with you - my biggest inspiration
This girl´s outfits and style convinced me that not only asian girls can look good in mori ♥
And before photos, let´s talk about the dress for a while =3
It´s my very first purchase from ModCloth which is something like a Wonderland in my eyes *o* they have so many pretty things !!! But most of them are beyond my bank account ha ha and so I was really happy about a huge sale they had in summer. I picked up like 10 dresses and in the end this one was a winner. It´s really good quality (well, one button fell off and I´m lazy to repair it, but that´s ok), the colour is a little darker than on the photo used in the shop, but I like it like that, too. What is super cute is a second "under-dress" which is a part of it but it can be worn separately - so it´s absolutely not transparent ! yay =)
sweater, leg-warmers - C&A
scarf, necklace - DIY
