pure magic!!

I am snowed in as snowed in can be. It just keeps snowing and icing over, making it impossible to leave the house! But my snow-flurry-filled day was brightened up immensely by a package from Freya of NaughtyPixie. Inside was THE MOST AMAZING OUTFIT!

I asked Freya if she would make my girls something mori girl inspired -- besides DLG and VA's stock and some Reve de Rui pieces, I've found it difficult to find mori-ish clothing for my girls. Mori girl is a fashion that is ever-evolving, but in essence: mori girls look like fairytale forest wanderers in their loose dresses, vintage prints and quaint accessories.

Mori girl is often neutral and light in tone, sometimes splashed with darker earthy colors like forest green and blended with other styles like dolly kei and natural kei. It's often a very, very layered look... which makes this outfit perfect, as it has bloomers, a lace skirt, a beautifully intricate blouse which I'll probably show off more later because it's STUNNING, and this frock over it, which is more beautiful in person than I can capture in photos. I think it actually makes for a lovely natural-kei outfit too. It's all so nautral and airy... and Freya also sent me lovely striped socks and some classy white Mary Janes!! Petaline loves Mary Janes!

Thank you, Freya!!

Oh, yeah -- my blog got a little makeover with a new header. I'm feeling the blue lately.
