Thanks everyone for your help!
As for Ebay, I've had a few bad experiences and a few good; about 50-50 between getting what I ordered and getting scammed. So it might be a last resort for me?
Custom work I haven't ever had a good experience with except for when my mother sometimes sews for me. But while she is an experienced seamstress, she is getting older and only sews for very important things. I once ordered a dress from FanPlusFriend and had it custom made but even when I gave them the exact measurements (with extra inches for the bra!) the top was still too tight and I had to modify the straps to get it to fit right.
And Starbright? Oh My God. I have ALWAYS wanted all sorts of lolita clothes. I own only one dress and have daydreamed for YEARS of having such pretty dresses and shoes and petticoats but I'm poor.
I was raised poor too, so even 20 dollars is a lot of money to spend to me. It's really hard for me to let go of money, even if it's something necessary like shampoo or something.
I actually stopped going to those sites because I KNOW I can't have it. It's like putting a child in front of a bowl of their favorite dessert and when they go to reach for it their hand hits a glass window they didn't realize was there!
As for Wal-Mart, I sometimes buy clothes in the children's sections. I just have few opportunities to do so since I'm usually with a group of people dicking around if I'm at Wal-Mart and they'd rather not wait for me to clothes shop. Not to mention there's no fitting room attendants late at night! (that hasn't stopped me from going under the door though!! XD )
I fit into 14-16 (which is the highest size I've found but I haven't looked in over a year) and have a few Hello Kitty things....but while they fit, they don't always fit 'properly'; like the shirt riding up in the front to fit in the funbags! XD
I should go again soon though, so thanks for reminding me that option is always there. And now that fiance has a better job maybe I can get him to order me a cute lolita dress. :3
Sweet lolita style is so cute. Myself I like sweet and country lolita. I have to ask:
I assume you own at least one petticoat right? What's the best one you own and where did you get it? I'm looking for one for several reasons.
I can't thank you all enough!
