Help with my first coord?

~*Hello everyone*~
~*I'm new to lolita and have finally taken the plunge to try out this new fashion so please help me with my recent purchase ^-^*~

I ordered a couple of skirts and a blouse from Bodyline as I have read they are a good starting point for newbies.

I got this blouse in White or off white according to them

And this skirt in Black

So I also ordered a pair of black socks with a white ribbon on it and a wig. But i'm not sure how to pair this with either outfit,
as I don't have any other colored socks unless I make an emergency trip to the mall and I really want to wear the black skirt for my birthday coming up.

So how do I pair up this outfit? I know it may seem simple for a lot of you but I want to do it right(as much as possible).

Blouse fabric?

Hello! I am fairly new to lolita and I've recently come across a couple of offbrand blouses that I would love to incorporate into my wardrobe. The only problem is, they are made of a shiny polyester fabric, giving them sort of a satiny look. I was wondering if that was a definite no-no, if there are some do's and don'ts or if there was no problem to it? They definitely don't look 'costume-y', they are store-bought blouses with a shiny edge. Thank you!
