Gothic Lolita?: 'Get Your Message' Skirt at Bizzare

I tend to think that what separates Gothic Lolita and Sweet Lolita is the cuteness factor and whether it goes over the top or not. Sweet Loli is definitely and always excessively and exclusively cute. Gothic Lolita takes the cute and dips it into a vat of sombre and gloom. That being said, I am not certain if the only thing that does not make this skirt Sweet Lolita is it being black and white.

Be as it may, it is nice to see something that could fall into the Gothic Lolita category and have it more white than black. There are a lot of layers, yes, but the structure still somehow manages to stay focused, and the piano keys bring a much-needed graphic element to tone down the fluff. The problem remains, however, that this skirt lacks in elegance, which would be greatly called for in order for it to really cross that line between frilly Gothic and GL.
