Lolita and green hair

I've been wondering for awhile now... is it acceptable to have a (for lack of a better word) unnatural hair color when wearing lolita? What I mean is it acceptable to have colors like blue, green, purple, pink, or a combination of those? I would really like to know whether or not it's just a bad idea to have colored hair and wear lolita at the same time. Does anyone have any good advice or opinions for me?

2011 trend prediction!

I made a post last year about the changes in trends from 2009 to 2010, so now that the new year is starting, I decided to make another one!

A recent trend I've noticed are belts! lots of posts on daily_lolita have coordinates of all styles accented with an offbrand belt. I really like this trend and actually went out and bought a belt of my own to wear with an innocent world jsk of mine~ I'm guessing that most people choose to wear belts to make their outfits more suitable looking for casual wear. Does this mean that the coming year's most popular style will lean towards casual lolita? Only time will tell~

so here are some questions to help predict what will be popular in 2011. Please answer any of them and the ones that get agreed with the most, I will post up here~

1. What trends do you see sprouting in the community? Belts, Longer skirts, un-natural wig colors
2. Which style do you think will become more popular in 2011? Classic, Casual, Pirate, Mori girl inspired 
3. What color schemes do you think will be popular? Lavender/Periwinkle, jewel tones, darker colors
4.  Which brand do you expect to put out the best designs for the new year?  Alice and the Pirates, Metamorphose

Thanks girls!

Bodyline Sale?

Hi, I saw a post on Bodyline saying "1th Sep Mr yan birthday sale! all 50% off!" and that it was extended, but not to when. I was wondering how the sale discount worked on the items (are they discounted during checkout or when exactly), or if they were reflected on the prices of the items, if ended already. I have interest on a couple of items too I would like some information/reviews/opinions on. Names or links to reviews would be great on any of these.
