Baby created AatP. Some people would consider them different brands but within the same company or you could say they’re different lines within the same brand but either way you look at it yes, it would be perfectly fine to wear AatP to a Baby tea party.
As for the “defect” brand, that really just means there may be a small stain or a button is missing or something like that. It’s still the original brand item so it would be perfectly fine to wear to your tea party, it’s just maybe not quite how it was originally intended to be sold.
I just reserved AATP’s Midsummer Night’s Dream JSK I in Navy: http://lolibrary.org/apparel/dream-midsummer-night-jsk-i-2013
What I also have in my wardrobe that I might be able to use is the following, but I’m not sure:
http://lolibrary.org/apparel/petit-frill-blouse-0 (In white)
http://lolibrary.org/shoes/marianna-strappy-shoes (In white – they’re loose so socks work best with them)

And I’m pondering getting this wig:
I really want to make this a really classy, elegant coord but I’m feeling a lost! I have plenty of time to look for items that would go better with it since the JSK comes out in February so I am open to ANYTHING. I think I’m really stuck on socks/tights, accessories, and shoes the most. Any and all advice would be fantastic!
Thank you so, so much for taking the time to read this over!
Response from Lolita Tips:
For the blouse, I would say to go with the Yolanda one. I think it’s a much more elegant look. I would like to see it with navy shoes, but not the Mod Cloth ones. They just seem a bit boring in comparison to how pretty and elegant the other items are. They just don’t stand up to the rest. The Baby shoes are gorgeous and they wouldn’t be a problem at all, but if you could get something equally as beautiful in navy I would do that instead. For legwear, maybe something lace. Black floral lace tights would be gorgeous and really pick up on the floral elements of the print. Then for jewelry and accessories you could use a little purple, black, and silver and maybe bring in the butterfly theme. Maybe do black for the hair accessory and then purple and silver for jewelry.
