Second opinion? I always get a big haul of stuff when everything goes on sale after Halloween. I was gonna' get me some of the costume shoes, and I was wondering if they could work in a lolita coord.

Like these. Maybe some clip on bows and some knee-highs with lace at the top.

I can't decide if they're stripper-y or not. XD

Honestly, I've seen tons of Lolitas wear boots close to that. I think the heels were much shorter, but I think they would work in the right coord..

With the right outfit they shouldn't look stripper-y. My friend has those same boots and pairs them with long shorts and a tee and doesn't look like a stripper (ha).

I'm just curious what everyone thinks of ballerina flats? (They are NOT the same as ballet slippers, which are used for the actual dance)

The strap on many Lolita's Mary Jane esque shoes cuts makes me look even shorter than I am (because it breaks up the continuous line of my leg through my ankle through my feet).

PERSONALLY I'm not about flats. I think you should have at least has a small heel (like a kitten heel) rather than no heel at all. I'm only 4'11 so understand your problem of not wanting to look shorter than you already are. Plus I think sometimes (depending on the coord) flats can stand out as being too plain compared to the rest of your outfit.
Depending on what style you're into (gothic, sweet, classic) there's a lot of non-mary jane options. There's boots (victorian, pastel and punk styles), oxfords, creepers, rocking horse shoes, those new popular velvet platforms and tons others!
