Yu Aoi in Jille

Just a quick post to share some pictures of Yu Aoi in the November 2011 issue of Japanese magazine Jille. The theme of the photoshoot is boy's style, and the baggy layers are quite reminiscent of mori girl style. She carries off the boyish clothing perfectly. There's something about her. I would never use the word "girly" on her, yet her face radiates feminity in a very earthy, natural way.

Featured Brand: Ciaopanic

The theme of Japanese fashion brand Ciaopanic's ladies' collection is "sweet vintage," something that should interest most mori girls. The pictures below were shot in the United States. I love them!

I have a thing for vintage motorcycles, lazy shirts with collars and well-worn cardigans. The first picture contains all three!

The floral bomber jacket in the first picture below is great, and the very American tshirts in both pictures are great fun.

Great examples of layering. The scarves wound all the way around the neck are distinctly mori girlish, and the roomy white dress in the bottom picture has a great silhouette.

These pictures smell of freedom.
