Please Help a Newbie Lolita!

So, I'm pretty new to lolita fashion. I love it but I need some help with like were to buy it and stuff. I have a blouse and a skirt (off-brand) but that's it. I found this dress that I'm madly in love with and I want to buy it. I am just not sure how good quality it is.

Here is the dress: http://www.lolitatrend.com/2011-new-...html?sid=18432

What do you think? I am just worried that because of the price it might be cheaply made and crappy looking. Do you think it is milanoo or a milanoo spinoff brand? Speaking of milanoo and milanoo spinoff brands, what's so bad about them? I've heard they sometimes steal photographs but is there anything else?

Thanks and please help!

I am 99% sure that's a milanoo spinoff, and that's most definitely a stolen picture. For info on milanoo, look here: http://egl.livejournal.com/14481128.html#cutid1 That pretty much sums up how bad they are.

And cheap doesn't have to mean poor quality. I suggest checking out FanPlusFriend or Bodyline or Anna House, Bodyline being the cheapest of the three. All have decent quality, and both have some fancier, more elaborate pieces like the dress you fell in love with, here's some examples:

Bodyline: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/s...sp?type=lolita

FanPlusFriend: http://www.fanplusfriend.com/servlet...Sleeves/Detail

Anna House: http://annahousefashion.com/015-1104.jpg

Also, Taobao is another cheaper option. And Anna house is in hong kong dollars, so the dresses aren't actually 400-900 dollars

Even if it doesn't have a watermark, that is still the same type of floral photoshopped background many companies, not just milanoo, use on stolen photos to rip off customers into thinking it is their own merchandise. It's very easy to identify stolen photos, and this place most definitely isn't trustworthy. I can idenitfy a few taobao shop's dresses, and at least one angelic pretty dress with a photoshopped brackground

Even if it doesn't have a watermark, the dress still looks pretty darn crowded and isn't that great. There's too much going on. It looks more like a cosplay dress than actual lolita fashion.

Oh and remember: MilanNO. Just don't do it. It isn't just their products. Their service is ridiculously shoddy and there has been tons of complaints about them. There's much better companies out there to buy better products from. Also, taking peoples advice and not being stubborn also helps when you are first getting into something new.

I suggest Bodyline, the quality has improved over the years and they have very cute things. ^^

Could I also interest you in some things I have for sale? XDDD Sorry for my blatant advertising.

There's also indie Lolita brands that could appeal to you and many are in the US, here's a list of indie brands. ^^

I hope you have good luck finding clothes and if you wanna see the things I've got, please PM me. ^^
