Avoiding bad designs

I have seen an article with several negative examples of lolita, but I lost the link. (I believe it was in English)
Could anyone here post that link, thanks. I'm doing a loli tutorial to a friend.

AatP's Melty Mermaid Princess Questions

While I am not really "new" to lolita, there are still a lot of things that I have no experience with because I've been fortunate enough to have friends who can help me out or do stuff for me. I think I have finally run into a roadblock though. I am head over heels for the new design by AatP: Melty Mermaid Princess- in Noir- and I've come to the conclusion that I have to own it. But I have a whole bunch of questions and, because it's so new, I really don't have anyone that I know personally to ask.

First, I'm a busty girl (100ish cm) so I do need shirring in my dresses. On the Baby site it says that the JSK goes up to 104cm in the bust. Is that accurate? I've seen at least one review that made me think that it didn't. On the same note, though the website says the OP is smaller, I think I've seen a review that says that it is the larger of the two dresses. Second, I can't even figure out if they even still have the dress available, because I can't read Japanese. Is it in stock or has it sold out? And third, does anyone have any pictures of someone actually wearing the dresses?

I really hope that you guys can help me out here; you have no idea how much I want this dress, but I'm not going to drop what will probably come close to $400 unless I can be absolutely positive that I'm going to get what I'm paying for. :)

Spat boots?

Hi guys! I know this isn’t exactly lolita related, but I’m sure you guys can
help. I recently saw the Broadway version of The Addams Family. It wasn’t that
great, but one thing caught me: Wednesday’s spat boots. I’m totally nuts for
them, but I have no idea where to find any like it! ( I realize they were
probably made for the show :( ) Anyways, I’d love it if you guys knew where I
could get any boots like them. You can find references here:

a “family photo” at the bottom that shows Wednesday’s boots.


Edit: I included a picture for reference.
