Beginner help (LJ,TAOBAO,LOLITA)

Oh i do hope i've done this right.. Sorry if i haven't this is my very first post

So im a beginner to the lolita,being a plus sized girl myself, i never thought i could fit into lolita clothing, but lately i have stumbled upon a few sites which have the option for larger sizes... seeing this i decided to finally pluck up the courage to invest in a few of these beautiful dresses, and for my birthday i will be purchasing a few replicas of my all time fav prints.
1. Milky planet
2. Sugary carnival
3. melty chocolate

All of which i was going to originally purchase from quiteland
I've been searching posts, and reviews ...some good, most bad and then i came across taobao.
Now this just totally confuses me, and scares the hell out of me lol, but i've heard this is a great way to buy Dream of lolita replicas, as they are cheaper and better postage costs.
But im in need of some tips of how to work out how to use the site.

Anyone had any experiences with quiteland?
I've heard alot of people say that their items have took months and months to arrive,or sometimes not at all.
Basically im just in need of being put into the right direction.
Also, i would love some tips about dressing lolita, like cords, hairstyles,good places to buy wigs, makeup tips.
Any info is greatly loved :}
