Matchy-matchy?

Another dumb coordinating question, sorrryyyy. <333

So I can't shake this incessant urge to wear socks and shoes that are the same color. Even further, sometimes I want to wear socks and shoes that match my skirt/JSK/OP color. Is this a no-no? I realize that certain colors might work better than others (the one I'm thinking of now is a brown skirt trimmed in off-white, brown socks, brown shoes; I feel like pink-on-pink-on-pink might look a bit OTT).

What are your opinions on this? And for added bonus points, do you have any pictures of successful coords that use this kind of color matching? :)

Photos needed

 Hello EGL!
I need your help today really fast if you would be willing

I am currently finishing up a new lolita website very similar to lolitafashion.org except
more extensive with more information, purchasing information, tutorials, et cetera.

And although I have an artist drawing examples of different styles of lolita I would love some of your photos as well!
So if you're willing to let me use them on the website please post away, I need all styles imaginable

Any photos are greatly appreciate and I will happily credit you for them
Please leave me your photos and style type and if I choose to use them I will PM or comment back later to 
make sure I still have permission and ask how you would like to be credited
Thanks so much!

Movie reviews?

So, I just got finished watching a movie called "Bright Star", which is a film about the romance between John Keats and his muse Fanny. (So sad. Omg. :( But good!) I ADORE period films - even when the story isn't so riveting, the awesome costuming always seems to make it worth it. Haha.

Then I started thinking about how in the Gothic & Lolita Bibles, they would always mention films that had a certain aesthetic to them that would appeal to Lolitas - and I thought it would be pretty cool if we started posting movie reviews/recommendations on films that would be related to our interests. Like period films set in revolutionary, regency, Victorian and Edwardian times, or films with a certain fairytale aesthetic (i.e Pan's Labyrinth, The Little Princess, Alice in Wonderland, etc) Of course, these would be for either newer, or lesser known/foreign movies...and maybe find some way of adding them to the memories so no one would post the same recommendation 20 times.

For these reviews and recommendations, I thought it would also be nice if there was a standard way of posting them. For example:

-------

(small picture)
(lj-cut)
(directed by: blah blah, starring: blah blah)
(short synopsis on the film)
(what about it appeals to Lolitas (costuming, story, etc)
(pictures if available)

-------

You know, nothing too long. And tagging them under something like "films" so they are easily found. What do you guys think?

Sears

 Its surprising when you find thing from a regular store that can go into lolita coords. Somewhere stuffed in between bright colored skinny jeans and way too revealing tanks is the unexpectd. i go tor Sears all the time and what do I find?

Bodyline photo request


Sorry to bother but I'm planning to buy this JSK from bodyline
http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/frame01.asp?type=gothic&subType=dress
(I'm interested in the black version you can see in the bottom image, this one http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/photos/l033-3.jpg ), so I would like to see how it is worn, if anyone has it, and know if the front bow is detachable.
Thanks in advance :)
