1) The cozy feeling I get whenever I put on an outfit. It feels like coming home.
2) The emphasis on nature. From fabrics, to silhouette, to aesthetic. I just love how nature is so ingrained in the style.
3) The fact that I can wear yards and yards of lace, and that's okay. Like, nobody questions it, because it's just how Mori Kei is.
4) The versatility of the style. There are coordinates I've worn that are so over-the-top that I felt like a literal forest fairy who just jumped out of a fairy tale, and then there are practical coordinates that I've worn hiking or working. And both of these coordinates, and anything in between, are still considered Mori Kei.
5) The community. It's grown smaller and smaller over the years, and many people have come and gone, but I've met some truly amazing people through Mori Kei, and I'm so very grateful for it. Know that any of you, from those I've had extensive conversations with, to those who have only commented once or twice, have made a major impact on me. I'm glad I've met every single one of you, my deers.
