I'd say something with bubble sleeves in white/cream or black. Bubble sleeves were the 'in' thing this year so you should be able to find them at any sort of retailer.

I agree with Enk. If you could find a bubble-sleeved blouse, it should work.

Also, depending on the color of your undershirt, you should coordinate your socks and shoes according to it. If your undershirt is white, then white socks/shoes would be alright. But if your undershirt is dark colored, then something dark on your feet and legs would work.

I do have a little concern that kinda contradicts with what I said about having white. I think the dress looks best if you can get a kurololi (all-black) look.

I do like the all black look but i need to find some good black loli shoes then..i do have a pair of platform demonia books but that dress deserves better T-T I do like the bubble idea but what about something kinda based of the lace colared Moitie dress. Like get a commission for it^^; unfortunatly i don't have the money nor the small shouler length to put it over my head
T-T... I think i might post some pics of the shirts.shoes i have so you can see what i have to work with ^^

that would be lovely too. Those type of blouses are very hard to make though, so a commissioner might charge you more than a hundred dollars. If you want the collared look, you could go with a shirt that has a square neck and either add a lacey 'neck corset' or have someone make a dickie for you, which would be more affordable and still have a certain period look.

Personally, I don't think the dress is cut out for that type of look. However, you have to like the dress, not I.

Aww, so cute!

Some suggestions:

Are you wearing a petticoat at all? The dress looks a little flat, and lolita needs to have a cupcake shape to the skirt.

I love your hair, but I think you should find a nice shade of lipstick that isn't black. It looks a bit costumey and I think a nice shade of rose would look much, much better.

Also, I couldn't see them too much in the pics, but you might want to invest in some different socks, maybe from a Lolita brand. "Knit" knee length socks look out of place with the dress. (Maybe some Knee Socks from In the Starlight, if you don't want to spend too much.)

If you wanted a specific style of shirt, I also recommend In the Starlight for commissions. She has very fair prices and does great custom stuff.

(www.inthestarlight.com is their website, for reference.)

If you're going for white platforms, I suggest a white blouse, try annahousefashion.com they have great blouses and are very cheap around 35$-40$ Great dress though, not too sure about the black lipstick but to each their own.

Oh, no, I meant that knit knee socks look out of place with Lolita. The socks you're wearing for the pics look like knits to me, but maybe I'm just crazy.

If you still wanted it to be a more gothic, maybe focus more on the eyes (nothing crazy of course ^^ but a darker pink/plum shade.

Anyway, I just wanted to add that I love your hair. Is that a wig? It looks so perfect!

I really think you should ditch the white face make up and black lipstick. It looks way too costumey. A more natural look would fit better in my opinion.

She already said she is going for a Mana type look. Mana wears tons of black lipstick, so it works out well.

ETA: if you want to capture that Mana look for your pictures, just take them in an alright lit place but leave out the flash. Or use photoshop to take away some brightness and add a tiny bit of gaussian blur to get that soft flawlessness that he has.
