I think it’s super cute but I hate how they coordinated it. I would not wear it with a blouse, I think that takes away from it (especially a printed blouse like they’ve shown.) I would say black shoes, maybe just plain white tights, and then play around with the accessories to really make it special. Maybe a gothic cross necklace that falls right at the top of the collar with a matching ring, a black and white hair accessory, and maybe black or white lace gloves. I can see a lot of Moitie influence working very well into a coord with it.

Response from Lolita Tips:
The items are all good separately (except I would only wear leggings with boots in Lolita, it looks a bit silly to have something on your legs and then bare feet with mary janes), but I don’t think they really work together. They really don’t have much in common. A dress with angels and a cross, a spider web blouse, and hot air balloon leggings? There isn’t much unification here and it just doesn’t make sense. I’m also not sure if the style of the blouse would look good with the style of the JSK.
What you could do is keep the dress and swap out the blouse and leggings for something that make more sense. Something like what they used in the stock photos for the dress either in white or black ,or maybe something with a high collar would work. Then you could do plain black tights or tights with a design on them that fits the theme of the dress or has a more neutral print. Crosses, Gothic architecture, something of that nature.
If you’re really attached to the blouse you could use that blouse with the Judgement Day skirt rather than the JSK because it would work better with the style of the skirt and then swap out the legwear as said above.
