do you know if the angelic pretty sweet cream ginger bear bag come in like a backpack version? i saw someone out in public with a gold one that looked like that but i only see it as a shoulder bag on lolibrary. i don't think that bag comes in gold anyway so i'm guessing it was a replica?

It was probably the Loris replica.

Do you have any suggestions for a versatile backpack or shoulder bag in a dark, cool color that could work for gothic or classic lolita? I don't have a lot of money to spend on one at the moment but I'd like to get at least one so I can start more comfortably wearing lolita in public

The thing that came to mind was this bag. It’s black and more Gothic but it looks very functional and versatile so it may be a good option. 

So I'm stumped on what kind of purse to coord with Lost in Sea and I was hoping you could help me out some... I have the op in dark blue and I'm trying to coord it in a more classic way with pearl accessories, black oxford heels, and blue lace tights. Thank you!

A cute option for something to match the sea theme and work well with the pearls would be a shell bag, like this one in white. I think that would be perfect. You could also tie in with the stars and moon with a star or moon bag in silver, black, or white.

Excuse me, but do you know what brand or where I could find that violin themed white purse in the last post you posted?

That bag is from Innocent World. It’s not currently available from them but they have re-released it before so they may do it again. You may also have some luck finding it second hand. There have also been some replicas floating around that you might be able to get your hands on if you’re okay with replicas.

Hi! I was wondering if I could have your opinion… Do you think this 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.

Would the dream fantasy LP purse in pink go ok with a princess wardrobe jsk in beige? Is the purse too sweet? Its quite a simple purse but I am not sure...

I think the purse is a little too sweet. I would look for something else first but if you’re on a tight budget or time crunch and you already have both it wouldn’t be terrible to put them together.

I was thinking of doing a coord with bodyline's L482 in black, L009 in black and off-white (or possibly black), and shoes 256 in black all from bodyline. I'm still a bit undecided as you can see, but what I really need help with is finding a bag! I want something that can hold a decent sized sketchpad, but I would prefer not to spend more than $50 shipping included. Can you think of anything that might work with it? Thank you!

I think something like this in black would be super cute and it looks like it could hold a sketchpad. 

Hello! I'm in the market for a super cute purse and I was wondering if you could help out. I'm looking for something in like a pale pink/coral or cream that would work well with classic or sweet coords. I like bows, more of a structured look, and round or fun shaped over the shoulder bags. I'd really like the price to be under 30 USD. Thank you so much you are an angel!!

Dreamv has a lot of really cute ones. They’re not all under 30 and wouldn’t be after shipping but they’re close to it and they have some that sound perfect like this and this.

I was wondering, what are your favorite skirts or dresses with pockets? And, do using said pockets make the skirt look weird? I need to carry medicine around with me but I always loose or forget bags.

A lot of Angelic Pretty’s skirts and dresses have pockets. I was super excited to learn when I got my dream dress (Whip Magic) that it had hidden pockets. They aren’t huge but if your medicine is in just normal sized pill bottles it should work.
This list isn’t exactly complete, but if you want to see some examples of items that have pockets Lolibrary can provide that for you.
If you have a lot of medicine or you think it might be too big for the dress pockets, I would suggest getting a good bag with a strap that you can wear across your body. That way you can always wear it and you don’t have to worry about putting it down and losing it like you would with one that just has straps you hold on your arm.

Do you know any (reasonably priced) bags that would go with bodyline's l346?

I would say it depends on the base color of the skirt, however since they all have a lot of pink in the print you could use a pink bag with any of them. Just something simple and cute in pink like this bag would be good, or you could do something in the base color of the skirt. A white bag would also work with all of them or a black bag with the black skirt (or really any of the others if you added more black to the coord.) When I was looking on Dreamv this bag also stood out to me. The angel doesn’t really have anything to do with it but if you needed coord ideas it would be cute to incorporate into the theme and the pink flowers fit well.
