Mixi's 62 Mori Girl Rules - How Many Do You Follow?

As I was clearing up my Internet bookmarks (I know they don't take up any space and are pretty much out of site but I need to tidy them up every so often!) I stumbled upon Fashion Japan's list of 62 Mori Gir Rules, a list of rules found on the Japanese Mori Girl community Mixi. I thought it'd be fun to read them and see how many you follow! I've put a little [x] next to the ones I believe I follow!

Mori Girl by Valerie Fujita

1. You like loose fitting dresses. [x]
It depends on my mood/style? I wouldn't wear skin tight dresses with Mori Girl!

In all honesty, I think many of these rules can be said of Dolly Kei too. I don't dress in Mori Girl as much as Dolly Kei because of the loose fitting, flowy, sometimes sack-like silhouette, it makes me look frumpy. I like layering but have to have a defined waist so I think Dolly Kei is more my style though some of the aesthetics are similar to Mori Girl.
