Question from a non-lolita seeking affordable lolita dresses in the US.

Hello ^_^ I was wondering if there are any lolita dress shops in the US that have cheaper dresses in the $30 to $100 range like mylolitadress.com and with custom sizing like they do? That shop is based in China and has shipping costs over $20. I'm basically trying to find the US equivalent to avoid costly shipping. In case anyone is curious, I've been in love with lolita dresses, socks, and shoes for over a decade, but without the entire lolita look, like just for every day non-lolita casual wear, which even includes wearing jsk with no blouse, like a op. I think I read somewhere before that this is called otome I already have a few custom size dresses that look like lolita dresses, but came from ebay and cost a ton. With limited income it's difficult to ever reach a full warddrobe. I can't keep doing that. My preference is sweet lolita, followed by some classic. Another example of casual non-lolita while wearing lolita dress is like what Springbok is wearing in this ASMR video from Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3Zg-Nmspks&index=8&list=FLCbgG0rHV8oUXg2IV7WFhfg&t=912s

She's wearing a jsk in the video, and I'll never know where she got it since she never replied to anyone that asked back then. I love it so much! I also love op dresses too, including some with puff sleeves. Here's another jsk I like from mylolitadress. http://www.my-lolita-dress.com/strawberry-cookies-sweet-lolita-jumper-dress-v-12 They have pictures of just the dress with no blouse. I'm looking for cheaper dresses under $100, but not 'knockoff' dresses. Mylolitadress.com has a few knockoff dresses, but at least they tell you which ones are. Hopefully someone can direct me to some affordable online shops in the US. Any help would be appreciated. ^_^
