Lolita shops in Beijing?

Hello everyone!  

I'm heading to Beijing this coming December for a few weeks and was wondering if there are any lolita fashion shops in the city.  I would imagine in such a big city there should be at least a few, but I'm having a hard time find them online.  Any kind of lolita is fine, sweet, gothic, or aristocrat.

Would anyone here happen to have more insight and can direct me to some shop names, websites, or addresses? 

 Thanks!!

I don't think there are any shops specifically for lolita. There is a brand shop called 淑女屋 (shu nu wu) which has some cute cutsew/blouses but look out for the lace quality (http://fairyfair.tmall.com/search.htm?spm=a220o.1000855.w6.1.bTWScq). They are usually found in large department stores and you can't bargain the price.
Personally I think that the prices are quite expensive compared to taobao, if you can find a friend who has a chinese bank account they could order some things online for you. Most shipping is really quick just H.M.H.M. custom makes theirs from scratch so takes longer approx a month.
My only other advice would be to buy lace, buttons and other crafts stuff to make your own accessories/clothes as it is cheaper.
