Another lame question about Japan and Lolita

Ok. I have looked through the memories pretty extensively these past few weeks, but if I happen to have missed this, feel free to link me to it, then delete the post (or just tell me to delete it :P and I shall!).

I know it's been said that staff at Lolita shops in Japan will probably give you better service if you happen to be dressed in an item from their brand - but what if you're dressed in another brand? Even worse (potentially?) what if you're dressed in a knock-off of their brand?

I ask because honestly, my loli wardrobe is pretty limited at this point - and I don't want to walk around Tokyo, diving in to Lolita stores, looking like a tard. But at the same time, I'm not sure I want to walk in dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, since I've heard that you'll probably just get treated like a tourist? (Then again, the pro of jeans/tshirt on similar combination is that they'll be easier to change in/out of rapidly).

Basically the only items I actually own, at this point, are one putumayo cutsew, a F+F skirt (pretty much a putu knock-off), and some meta socks and bloomers. Which basically equates to one outfit, of dubious quality.

Were you in my shoes (literally, in this case! har) what would you do?
