A Right Way To Do OTT Sweet?

Is there a right and wrong way of doing OTT sweet?
Can I just go crazy with the accessorises on my hair and on my clothes?
I'm guessing there is a point where you have to stop -- e.g. can't see hair/dress/blouse.

There will be an event at school -- Pink Ribbon Day -- where the students can wear as many pink things as they can with their uniform.
I'm hoping to do a cotton candy-like hairstyle with OTT sweet accessorises in my hair. :)

This is how to look for hair sticks on Taobao

Hi everyone, I remember some people wondering where they can get loliable hair sticks. There's no real guarantee that you will find loliable hairsticks on taobao, but if you do want to do a search on taobao for hair sticks, you just need to copy and paste these two characters into the taobao search bar.

Happy searching!

Petticoat at Six flags? (Also, Hime Reference pictures?)

Hello, EGL!

I feel like I'm posting a lot, but I need help with this and I know you can answer my question(s).

I'm going to Fright Fest on sunday, and i'll be wearing a Gothic Loli skirt and blouse outfit. My question is: If you were going to Six Flags, would you wear a petticoat? I know Petticoats make the look and all, but I'm just afraid of them getting messed up or crushed.

Also, I'm going to be wearing a Hime outfit for my halloween homecoming dance, and if any girls have reference pictures they could share here, I would greatly appreciate it. I've researched it a lot, but I don't feel like I've accumulated enough References.

Thank you!

Connecticut Lolitas Facbook Group and a local gift swap.

Just looking for some stray Connecticut lolitas! Our local LJ community, ctonthefrills , has been pretty desolate for the past year, so we recently decided to make the move to Facebook since there actually are a fair number of us for such a little state. So, if you're a Lolita in the CT area and didn't even know we had an LJ comm, check out the Connecticut on the Frills Facebook group.

To bribe everyone into joining we're hosting a small gift exchange for the locals. It will be a through-the-mail gift swap, no meetup required, so even those located a little too far away, or in the middle of nowhere, can easily join in on the swappy goodness. Details about the swap are posted both on the LJ comm and the FB group.

Posting this with a mods permission, since it's basically advertising a community!

Curiosity

 I have a feeling this might be a sensitive topic, but I really do have to ask someone, and I thought asking the community would give me a more balanced idea...

What is considered ita? Is there some sort of general guideline or is it purely personal perspective?

Why are black and white combinations considered ita? I have a rather old black dress with white lace, which I think is kinda cute, but is it ita?

Is red tartan ita? I have a red tartan skirt because my hubby likes the fabric... 

Why do we need a term like 'ita' anyway, if we're all open to experimentation?

Qutieland delays

Hello all. As some of you who order from Taobao may know, the staff of Qutieland is currently on a work trip (http://www.qutieland.com/news.php?new=34). This means they may not respond to order e-mails for some length of time.

Has anyone ordered from them during the work trip and gotten a reply back yet? It's been a week since I put in my order and I haven't gotten a confirmation yet. I'm expecting something of a delay, but I just want to figure out how long it may take. I sent them an e-mail and they sent me a link to their website explaining the delay, but not approximately how long it may be!
