“The Holly Green, The Ivy Green”: More Fashion-Inspired Christmas Décor

Last week I focused on some options for décor inspired by Lolita fashion. This week, I’m going to the other end of things with mori girl, dark mori, and dolly kei.

Mori Girl

While there are a lot of rustic Christmas ideas out there, my idea of a mori girl Christmas is informed by my own family traditions. I grew up with a lot of Scandinavian holiday influences, so when it came time to think of a mori girl Christmas all I could think of was my family’s shabby straw julebok with its red velvet ribbon and its little wheat beard.

Scandinavian-inspired décor is pretty perfect, though, when you think about it. Heavy on straw ornaments with red and white as the primary colors, this stuff is very mori girl. It’s rustic but still has an undeniable charm to it.

Outfit of the Day: Otome-ish Outfit for Tree Decorating

As you may or may not have noticed, I rather enjoy Christmas. I also really enjoy decorating for Christmas. It's somehow become my job every year to put together the holiday decorations at my parents' house, and this year was no exception.

The tree you see there? That's this year's tree. And, because I'm me and rather fail sometimes at being "practical" in the traditional sense of the term, I decorated while dressed up. With all the Christmas decorations I've been posting, I thought I should share some of the pictures I've taken of decorating along with my outfit.

These are a couple of weeks old because I've been busy with the holiday season as a whole - decorating, family events, making gifts, and attending my cousin's wedding - but I hope you'll like them anyway.

“Santa Baby, Slip A Sable Under The Tree”: Lolita Fashion-Inspired Christmas Décor

It's time for Christmas decorating! If you’re not into decorating, I hope you at least like looking at the pretty pictures. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, maybe a few of these will give you ideas for year-round décor.

Classic Lolita

Those of you who like a traditional tree? Classic Lolita is the place to go full tilt Dickens on your decorating. I probably don't need to go into too much detail with this one, because this is the sort of thing many people think of when they think of Christmas.
