Thus, I thought I'd put my mucking and internet-shopping-fu to good use and share some adorable offbrand finds with you guys. These are just some things I happened to find that I thought would coordinate well with lolita. I hope you like them!
Let's start with the shoes. I am an absolute shoe addict, and as such I spend a good deal of time *coughinclasscoughcough* internet-window-shoe-shopping. Here are some of my favorite finds:
Payless Kimberly Mary Jane Pumps: $19.99
I have these, and I adore them. They are great staple lolita shoes.
Brilliant Lug Bottom Mary Jane: $17.99
I think these would be great for casual lolita, or girls who can't/don't like to wear heels.
alice + olivia for Payless Erica Sweetheart Mary Jane Pump: $38.00
While a bit pricier than the rest, I love the unique cut of these shoes. The white piping makes them great for retro-styled outfits.
American Eagle Patent Crystal Ruffle Pump: $27.99
How GORGEOUS are these?! Also available in black.
Classified Zona Pumps: $17.99
I think these would be nice with a casual, classic outfit. Cute brown shoes are hard to find!
Madden Girl Posiee Pumps: $17.99
Classic with perhaps a touch of steampunk? Love them!
Michael Antonio Nora Pumps: $16.99
Beautiful classic maryjanes. Also available in black.
Madden Girl Eastern Pumps: $17.99
Similar to the first pair I posted; simple, classy, and cute...and even cheaper!
Soda Edoko Wedges: $18.99
I am absoultely, hands-down in LOVE with these shoes. I think they'd be great for casual or even gothic styles.
Now for some accessories:

IF you don't feel like accessorizing your entire wardrobe in F21 alone (though you certainly could!) here are some other finds:
How about tiaras for the hime-lolitas?

One of my favorite shops, Modcloth, has some adorable loliable accessories. I was also recently asked to model for them, so I may be getting a sweet employee dicount! XDD
I don't know about you, but I think gloves are a super-cute addition to a lolita outfit. How about these darlings:
Girly Girl Gloves: $12.99
In bubblegum pink, pefect for you sweet lolitas!
Cyndi Lauper Gloves in Ivory: $12.99
Nothing is more classic than a beautiful pair of delecate crocheted gloves.

Betsey Johnson Bow Timepiece: $94.99
Much pricer than my usual fare, but it was too cute to pass up!

Renaissance Cameo Ring: $13.99
Also came with a black cameo, but it's sold out. =(
Miss Mary Mack Necklace: $79.99
Again, pricey, but adorable!
Home Tweet Home Necklace: $15.99
Perhaps a moderately resonable alternative to the coveted Supporate System birdcage necklaces?
Antique Blue Rose Tights: $26.99
Potentially tricky to coordinate, but if done right I think these could be awesome!
Polka Dot Party Tights: $14.99
A bit difficult to tell in the picture, but they have teeny tiny mini polkadots on them!
Pocket Watch Necklace: $24.99
I believe it was Innocent World who made pocket watch necklaces a while back?
Then, of course, there is the potential goldmine that is Etsy. Though pricey, user Aranwen makes some beautiful things. Here's a link to her shop.
And some of my favorites:
Victorian Black Necklace: $25.00
I cannot even begin to tell you how in love I am with this gorgeous thing. But for $230.00...I don't think it's coming home with me anytime soon. =(
I hope I've at least given you some pretties to look at. ^^
