Based on my experience with Cosmates they will most likely only be cheaper until you pay for shipping which will then end up being much slower than if you were to buy from F+F directly. Unless something is sold out on the original site it’s best to just skip Cosmates and shop at the source.
Hello there. I want to buy my first lolita co-ord. I’ve been interested in lolita for quite a while and now there will be a J-fashion event in The Netherlands so I decided to finally get my first co-ord. But I’ve run into a few problems.
First of all, I decided to go with these:
My first question is: Does this look like a good co-ord? I really hope so..
And ofcourse.(sorry if I ask too much). I have a third question. What kind of wig could I use? (I don’t want to use my own hair.) I have a few in mind but I am not sure if they would go with my co-ord. Should I go for a light wig or a dark one?
Here are the ones I had in mind.
- Brown one with 2 curly clip-ons
- Curly brown one 70cm
- Blond and curly with 2 clup-ons (thinking about wearing without clip-ons first then.)
I hope you could help me and I hope I am not asking too much. I’m just a bit nervous for my first co-ord. I love your blog. It helps a lot.
With kind regards,
Response from Lolita Tips:
The first thing I would like to say is that you should NOT buy from lolitadressesshop. They’re a shop that steals all of their stock photos and is known to be similar to Milanoo so whichever options you have from them, knock those options off your list. Also pay very close attention to the ebay shops you’re buying from. They look a bit iffy too so be sure to pay close attention to their reviews, both on ebay and off ebay and be sure they come off as reliable.
Anyway, I love the skirt, love the blouse, the shoes are fine, get rid of the bracelet because of where it’s from, no to the socks for the same reason and the tights are fine (but if you could ask the shop about making them again in black with a white print I think that would suit the coord better because I feel like the white tights would really stand out more than they should), what your bloomers look like isn’t super important but those would be perfect if they weren’t from a scammer (you can buy very similar ones on etsy), and the hair piece is gorgeous.
For the necklace, I think a choker would actually look prettier, but once again, from a different shop. F+F has some pretty ones though that you could buy when you get the other things from them.
For the wig, I think the first or second option would both work just fine, I think what it really comes down to is which of those shades would look better on you which isn’t something I can really say.
