Elegant? Yay or Nay?

Hello everyone, I'm a beginner lolita hoping to get some advice/opinions on some of the off-brand goods I've found around the house!

First, here are the shoes:

Very simple black shoes. Not sure what they're made of, but they're matte and not shiny like enamel shoes. I believe the heels are somewhere between 1-2 inches?

To be honest, I've haven't seen shoes embedded with rhinestones or the like so I feel like these wouldn't work... But I just wanted to check since these shoes are super comfy. Some bits of glitter along the sheer-like sides of the shoe, and fake rhinestones near the front. The heel is probably 1 inch at most.

Grey shoes with black soles. There's 2 large flowers embroidered into the shoes with a lighter grey thread. The heel is maybe around 4-5 inches..? Could they work with the right dress and maybe some minor touch-ups (e.g. replacing the thread lacing with a thin ribbon)?

Now onto the accessories:

It's a BIG red bow with some rhinestones in the center. When I say BIG, I really do mean BIG (it's slightly bigger than my entire hand). A bit shiny, though not obnoxiously so?

A simple black bow. Also on the bigger side, and again it's a bit shiny.

Two smaller bows. The top one is a dark blue with a lace-like black netting over it, and the one below is a white bow with thin golden stripes. There's another picture of the blue bow below in case it's difficult to tell what it looks like in the first picture.

Thank you in advance for any feedback!
