Musing around I've come across many visuals that have been associated to a certain "Mori Girl" Japanese subculture I find very visually endearing. Mori means forest in Japanese, and according to several blogs covering the subculture, Mori Girls "look like fairytale forest wanderers" and "live their lives on their own terms, stopping to appreciate the little things that others overlook amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life." Very cute. I guess maybe if this was a la mode when I was younger I would've found a family in this subculture, as I guess I've always been very "mori" at heart -- even in the city. I bet when I have a daughter she'll be a mori-city girl.
