Petticoat storage

So I have a new petticoat that I bought from QutieLand and it's already gone flat on one side of it after wearing it only twice to class. It's an organza petticoat, which I heard is supposed to stay fluffy longer than others. I've read people saying to store them upside down, inside out and upside down, rolled up and put in a box, ect. I would love to know how to get the poof back in the one spot and how to store it propperly without it loosing it's poof. Thanks for your help.

Flats?

 I'm fairly new to loli still, and I haven't been able to find any shoes that aren't heels and are still loli. I'm 5'7", and I really don't want to increase my height while wearing loli. Links would be greatly appreciated :3

Some RHS questions and a picture request

Hello all, I hope you're having a lovely day today! I recently ordered Bodyline's rockinghorse shoes, and I love them! Anyway, I had a question to any owners of foam-soled RHS, especially Bodyline RHS. Are the shoes comfortable to walk in over long periods of time? I've been wearing them around a bit  and I think they're pretty comfortable, (more comfy than high heels, anyway!) but I'm inquiring about constant wear for all-day situations. (To put it into perspective a bit, my friends and I are going to NYC soon, and I'd love to wear them. However, we'll be on our feet from 10 am to about midnight, so I'd like to know if my feet will kill by the end of the day or not.) 
Also, I ordered my RHS shoes in white, and I'm having a bit of trouble coordinating them. I have a limited loli wardrobe (a F+F skirt, 3 blouses, 2 pettis, some Meta socks and an Atelier Pierrot bag, and 3 hadmade dresses), so I would love to see your pictures of white RHS coordinated with your outfits~! (Especially any pictures of Bodyline's "shoes 196".) Thank you very much and please have a nice day! =)

SF Japanese Gardens & Japantown Pictures

Friday before last we had a meetup at the Japanese Gardens in San Francisco. It was free before 10am so most of us were only half awake when we got there. ;) We shared a potluck brunch, got tea and walked through the gardens until the rain drove us out. Then we headed over to BTSSB as they opened and hung out in Japantown for a couple hours.

k I feel stupid for asking this

But does anyone know all the places to buy second hand brand? I know there are auctions (yahoo and mbok), the comm sales, closet child, and clothing drop, but are there any other places?

I feel like I'm missing something.

EDIT: Thanks! Now I'm going to list all the sites you've all mentioned for the sake of it.

Appropriate items for comm_sales

Hi everyone. I've been working on a list to add to the rules of egl_comm_sales to show what is an isn't acceptable to sell. The problem is, I don't want to use peoples images without permission. I was hoping some of you would have images I could use; I'm wanting a collage under each explanation, so people can get a rough visual idea of what is and isn't acceptable. Stock images are fine too but i don't really know where to look for the inappropriate items ^^; I'm also open to more suggestions on what to add to the list - For each way, in case you can't tell, I'm trying to compare it directly with the 'appropriate' version. I'm racking my brain as to what else needs adding, but i think i got the main points...!
