Brands for after lolita?

I am planning on gradually phasing out of lolita, and I was hoping for some recommendations for brands with a similar aesthetic, but a more mature look. I have been into classical lolita for over a decade, and I love the style, but I am just starting to feel uncomfortable while wearing it (and it is so formal that I find myself wearing it only a couple times a month). I don't plan to sell anything, just only buy really special things and gradually buy more from less flamboyant brands. I am looking for Japanese brands around the same price point of classic lolita (not Dior prices, but not H&M either). I am also open to girly style western designers, and I enjoy Milly, Jill Stuart (although I really prefer her Japan-only designs), Nanette Lepore, and RED Valentino. I really like Jane Marple (of course), but I am also interested in brands like Franche Lippee and even Tsumori Chisato (and associated brands). I know a lot of the lolitas on Livejournal have either expanded their style or slowly grown out of lolita into other styles, so I would be thankful for your brand recommendations!
