First Post-Please help a newbie accessorize

I am getting ready for my lolita debut at a local anime convention. I have been compiling these outfits little by little since last October or so. But, they just seem like they need something.

More info, 3 outfits and several questions behind the cut!


EDIT: I think my problems are solved! Thank you to everyone who responded! :)


[Insert cliche opening paragraph about how much I love loli, being a long-time lurker first-time poster on EGL, etc. Sorry had to include that since every other first poster does ;)]

I know I need more accessories. I am going to get a birdcage necklace for the second outfit, but I do not know what to do with the others. I will post questions after each picture. 

Disclaimer: Please excuse the hair/makeup and the photography skills of my husband, lol. I will be wearing my hair curly (its naturally that way) and make-up "finished" when I actually go out for the convention. I did include a pic of the hair/makeup plan at the bottom. I just wanted general feedback and advice on the outfits.

Outfit 1:



Outfit Rundown:
Blouse and Shoes: Anna House
Skirt and Purse: BTSSB
Socks: Bodyline

Questions: What should I wear with it in the way of jewelry? I have a white plastic rose ring. Would that work? Does the purse match well enough with the outfit? Any other suggestions?

Outfit 2:



Outfit Rundown:

Blouse: Meta
Skirt and socks: Bodyline
Shoes: Anna House

Questions: Does the clutch go with the outfit? I spent all my money on clothes with none left over for an awesome bag. Also, should I wear a long necklace with it (I was thinking a key pendant or birdcage pendant)? I have several cameo brooches that I could pin to the collar or maybe tie a bow? What do you ladies think? I just feel this outfit is lacking.

Outfit 3:



Outfit Rundown:

Blouse: BTSSB
Skirt and shoes: Anna House
Socks: Offbrand

Questions: Is this too much black and white? I thought adding the socks would be better than just plain white socks, but now I am unsure. Also, I have a black and white headbow on the way that I ordered online. Suggestions?

Hair Plan front and side view:





Any advice and constructive criticism is appreciated! Sorry for all the questions and being such a newb, but I figured it would be better to include everything in one post. Thank you everyone in advance!
