Would be suitable for Natural Kei ^^

Hi there, I found out about Mori Girl and Natural Kei today, and I was wondering if you could explain the differences and similarities of the two? I saw the post on the dif between Mori and Dolly, and the post on what Natural Kei was, but I'm not quite sure of the style differences between "forest" and "peasant chic." Thanks!
Natural kei is a much older style than Mori, dating back to the 70s. It is a pastoral, historical or period look whereas Mori is more fairy-tale forest. The two styles do overlap a lot however there are some things which are only one or the other. Here are some examples:
Natural Kei only
Mori Girl only
Naturally, there is A LOT of grey area here. Some things one person would call Natural Kei, another would call Mori. Some outfits can be distinctly one or the other, but quite a lot could be either. It really depends what the wearer identifies as. Mori is somewhat a result of experimenting with Natural kei, so it’s only expected that they look a lot alike!
Know of any good taobao stores or stores in general that sells natural-kei? I know this is a mori girl tumblr, but the natural-kei tumblr seems to be inactive, and the two seem to be closely related.
Sure, here are a couple that have some Natural-Kei style things:
Miss Point (has a really varied style)
Hope one of these has what you’re looking for!

and the differences between mori kei and natural kei? (not the anon before)
Natural Kei is a style that popped up in the 1970s, so it’s much much older than mori-girl and is meant to give a pastoral or period look. It uses mostly natural fibres like mori girl but the colour pallet can be looser.
The 6th coordinate that I posted in that last question is actually a good example of Natural Kei more than mori-girl. Her coordinate is by Pink House which is a predominately Natural Kei brand.
Here are a few examples of Natural Kei.
And this is a really good article on Natural Kei.
