Hi! I was wondering if I could have your opinion… Do you think this bag: http://www.storenvy.com/products/7997556-free-ship-lolita-star-hand-bag in gold, might look good with Merry Making in the Ghost Town JSK II in black? This is the one I have: 

If not do you have any tips of one that might work that isn’t coffin shaped? I’m trying not to spend over $50. Thank you so much for your time!

Response from Lolita Tips:

I think that bag would work well. Another option that I thought of that I think would be super cute with it would be a backpack like this. I think the heart shape and the fact that it’s a backpack give it a sort of cutesy feel but then it has the bat wings which I think suit the print perfectly.

Hi! I was looking for some socks or tights (preferably tights) that would be good for aatp's Time of the Roses in navy as well as classic lolita in general, what do you recommend? Also, I don't really like heavily printed socks or tights. Thank you very much!

Everyone knows how much I love lace tights and sheer tights with opaque details so naturally I think these in either color they’re available in would be perfect. Other than a simple floral design like that, the best I could think of for someone who doesn’t like heavily printed legwear would be plain navy, cream, or dusty pink tights or socks.

Hey, I recently purchased Alice and the Pirates ‘Guilty Meltin’ Sweets Town Jumper Skirt ’ in black. But I’m having a hard time finding a good blouse. Black is too dark and doesn’t show off the bat straps (which are too good not to show off).
I think a lavender or antinque/rosey-pink would look nice, like in the test I made. Those blouses are either sold out, or won’t fit me though (plus size), and I’m having trouble finding something. Would you have any recommendations? Or another color you think would work?

Response from Lolita Tips:

I think the pink is a really good color for it. I think it really brings out the print and shows off the awesome straps. This one is a little lighter but it may be a good option.

What type of blouse would look good with the AttP Cards Queen JSK in Navy? Should I go with something w/o a neck ribbon/jabot since it has the little bow at the chest?

The bow is tiny so if you were to cover it up it wouldn’t be a huge deal. I only recommend avoiding those when there’s a big bow or other big detail on the dress that a bow on the blouse could get in the way of. I think something with a high neck would suit the JSK well, with or without a neck bow.

Hello, I'm thinking of buying aatp JSK Black cat, witch and apple tree in red and was wondering what kind of headdress would go well with it. Eiter a red Bonnet or a black Bow. But I can't really decide which would look better.. All in all I would wear a black lacy blouse and black socks with red shoes, as its my first lolita coord I am a bit nervous. Thank you so much in advance!

Why not both? You could do a red bonnet with a black bow in the brim to pull together both of the colors.

Hi :) i think i've have asked this before, but how could i coordinate aatp's clockwork aristokitty skirt in blue. polyvore(.)com/untitled_77(/)set?id=124736868 is what i had planned so far, i was trying to create a sweet coord.

I’m not sure about the wrist cuffs in that color. Navy or ivory wrist cuffs would be a better choice. Maybe use clock themed jewelry and to really bring in the sweet look you could bring out the polkadots. Sweet shoes in navy and then you could bring the dots in with tights and other accessories like this cute bow.

Out of aatp's Time of the roses jsk I in navy and btssb's sleeping beauty princess aurora jsk in lavender, which would be better for classic lolita?

They’re both gorgeous and would work well for Classic, but based on your color options I think Time of the Roses would be the better option.
