Buying My First Pair of Shoes - Could Use Some Advice

Hello, egl. I'm in the process of buying my first coord and I'm a bit stumped on what color shoes I should buy. My coord so far is very sweet with lots of pastel colors and floral patterns. I've read on somewhere that coords that are light in color would be better coordinated with white shoes.

My problem is I don't know if I want my first pair of shoes to be white, as I do plan on experimenting with darker garments somewhere down the line, and I don't have the budget to by different colored shoes to match each of my coords. My question is would black shoes be appropriate to wear with the sweet lolita style? In other fashions I've been under the impression that black shoes can go with just about any outfit, however, I'm not sure if that rule applies in lolita as well. Are black shoes a staple that can go with anything?

I'm sorry if this is a noob-ish question, as I'm still very much a newb. I'd appreciate whatever advice you all could give me. Thanks in advanced.
