Beginning lolita trying to build a wardrobe: Should I buy a skirt or a JSK?

So I just started out in lolita this winter after loving the fashion for years. My roommate was lovely enough to get me a skirt from Bodyline I was really liking but it doesn't look too good on me (I think prints might not suit me).

It was this skirt if you were wondering:


More details after the cut!


I think I'm gonna sell that and buy something new! I'm torn between the following 2 items:

This JSK in black



or this skirt in black (but replacing that satin ribbon later)



What would be better to get to start out my wardrobe? Why?

edit:
picture of the skirt I own. I don't hate it as much at the moment, strangely enough hahah! (pardon my bare feet, just took this picture for this post)

soft cream bodyline skirt

Btw I own this blouse
