Gorgeous!

YES, it is done! And YES it works out super well!

As I wear both styles myself, I can’t prevent mixing them. Steampunk often uses layering for creating outfits, so that fits the mori aesthetic quite well. Also the colour scheme ranging from dark to lighter browns work out well for both: Mori and Steampunk. So mixing both is not that difficult ;)

There’s also a short note about that in the Mori special (Ed. 9) at the online magazine BCM. You can download it free here.

Some examples of mixing both styles from me:

I think Hildekittens outfits often have a (Dark) Mori vibe, so here are some examples from her:

Another (really great) example for mixing are the outfits of Crystaline.

I hope that helped ;)

I know the ideas of mori girl & spring formal/prom may kinda clash, but I was wondering if there's any way to incorporate mori into prom?

My answer:

Hi ^^ I am from Australia, so I’m not 100% on what is acceptable for prom but here are some ideas:

I think if you are going to try a formal mori-girl style, you should definitely stick to a long skirt. I think something like one of these could work well paired with a cute flower crown and matching shoes ^^ if you go for a white dress, make sure your accessories are colourful (eg. pink or dark brown) so that it doesn’t look too bride-ish. 

Or then you could go for a much more traditional mori-girl style like these:

or something more gyaru-ish:

or something more lolita-ish

hope you find what you’re looking for xoxo




ogsaavidere Asked:
First of all: Thank you for a wonderful blog. It gives me a lot of inspiration! And now my question: I live in a place that gets very cold during the winter, and I have to wear thick coats. I always have trouble finding winter coats that goes with the mori style. Do you have any ideas/photos of mori girls dressed for winter? Also, do you have any ideas about how to style an ordinary winter coat into a mori winter coat?

My answer:

Thank  you! 

Here are som examples of mori girls dressed for winter: 

If you have a plain coat in a natural colour (eg. cream, beige, tan, brown) and are comfortable doing some crafting, there are lots of things you can do to it - eg, add some lace to the collar or pockets, put some trim around the bottom or add floral or gingham fabric to the inside of the hood ^^ As you can see from the above pictures, the toggle-style coats are really popular in mori-girl (and really popular in Japan in general at the moment) so if you can find one of those, I think they’re the best :)

Anonymous asked: Two questions, one suggestion: 1) I apologize in advance if this was already asked. Are there any examples of what to wear with long skirts? 2) What is your opinion on Wonder Rocket? 3) I think tagging posts with ‘dresses’/’short skirts’/’sweaters’/etc would be helpful

#3 first - I have actually been meaning to go through the blog and do some mass-tagging of posts so everything is more organized, I just have to find the time ^^;;; 

#2 - I love wonder rocket! I think they are great and the quality is reasonable :) 

#1 - You can wear almost anything with a long skirt. Here are some examples:

Anonymous asked: Do you have any suggestions for more elegant mori clothing? Not necessarily formal wear, but something just a little dressed up that can still be worn casually. I know it is a strange question…. I love your blog!

Hmm Pink House has some things like that for example:

You can also find some longer dresses that are suitable for mori-kei on places like modcloth:

Anonymous Asked:
It's there any possible way to mix mori and steampunk? Somehow this styles seem like opposites, but yet a very uncommon and interesting blend

My answer:

I have never seen this done personally and I don’t know a lot about steampunk… ^^;;; 

I imagine if you wanted to do it, you could focus on using leather in your outfit since it’s a material that’s OK in both styles. Also maybe making a cute flower crown that included some flowers made from brass or something? I guess if someone said to me - imagine mori-steampunk, I would think of a clockwork forest haha. Though the ideas behind each of the styles seem somewhat in contrast, I think the aesthetics could work together if you were careful ^^;;; 

I imagine something like this would go well in such an outfit:

I'm trying to start a mori wardrobe, what do you think would be a good starting point? (I.E, x shirts, x skirts/bottoms, x outerwear...) Sorry if this is a stupid question!

My answer:

I would say decide on the colour palette you want first (say you want all creams and beige or you like green a lot etc.) Once you’ve chosen your focus colour, I would work on getting the basic components of a couple of outfits and choose things that can be layered, mixed and matched and used in multiple ways. 

Ideally, I think you should aim to start with: 

3 x dresses, 2 x skirts, 3 x blouses, 2 x t-shirts or tops, at least 2 x outwear + a coat if where you live is cold, 2 x shoes and 1 x bag. You should also try to get a lot of different socks and leg-wear plus an assortment of accessories :) Also, if you want to go for a more boy-ish look, you can swap out the skirts and dresses for more tops, a pair of shorts and some pants.
