I am really new to lolita so im dont know how to put together a really good looking lolita outfit yet x3. Im meeting a part of my family for the first time and i am trying to put together a country lolita outfit. I got the dress but i dont have any shoes to go with it! Im kinda hopeing some one has this dress and  can tell me what they wore  with it so i can kind of have a out line on what will look good with it.

Using a petticoat for length

Hi everyone :)
I just got my Anna House package and I've tried everything on and I'm pretty happy with the fit but my only problem is that the skirt which I ordered in a small is a little short for my taste (maybe 2-3 inches above the knee). I thought it was the right length when I looked at the measurements online, but I didn't realize just how high waisted the skirt was so it makes the skirt a bit shorter.
Oh-kay, so my question is, can I use a petticoat to add length to the skirt by having it come out from underneath the skirt a few inches? I was thinking a petticoat with a nice lace on the bottom so it doesn't just look like a plain old petticoat. But I've never tried this before so can anyone give me some tips on what to do in this situation?
Thank you!

This is a picture of the skirt worn for reference. Soo underskirt required? Yes? No? I still sorta thinking yes just because I prefer a good knee length skirt, but I thought I'd post this just because I'm wondering whether it really is too short. I'm just wearing it, no petti, no nothing XD Sorry. Just a quick snap shot lol

Why did it have to be whiiiiiiiiiiiiiite

I ordered a Meta LP "B" type, hoping to get any color but white, and got white >_<

I'm not a fan of white, but I absolutely love the cut of the dress *_* It goes right to my knees, so I don't have to worry about bending over to pick up coins or small animals.

Does anyone happen to know if with lucky packs, does the same dress tend to get repeated in the other colors? I'm wondering if I should start haggling for trades at egl sales XD;

Also, the glitter bag is incredible! Also, sheds glitter.

Cleaning an Usakumya

How would one go about safely cleaning an usakumya? In particular, I'm looking to get dirt stains off of fur of the largest white one. I searched in the memories and only found one post with a similar question, but it was for an AP scarf and makeup, so I'm not sure how much of it can be applied.
