Can anyone recommend brands similar to Jane Marple but a little bit cheaper?

I've been wearing lolita for nearly 2 decades and I never thought I'd say this but I want to wear something more casual and mature. I'd love to buy a whole bunch of Jane Marple maxi skirts but they're twice as expensive as Lolita clothes. I've worn Jane Marple before and I didn't think the overall quality was twice as good..

I was looking for pajamas, this one looks a lot like some pair sold at Aliexpress. Keywords started with kawaii/cute, some clicks later it showed up.

Quality could be on the bad side, but they're easy to find at a cheap price. Either way:

>What's your favourite brand and why?
All time favorite was Cache Cache for French clothes that lasted for years. Not lolita but femenine and comfortable.
>What's your favourite look/thing to wear right now?
Long pants with light fabric, pastel colors are good. No need to get all the hair out of my leg all summer, let the skin rest.
>What have you bought recently and how do you decide what to buy?
Nothing. I put all my wardrobe in one website, so the pieces could be compared in a single image. Web closed down, so now it's a phone app with similar looking stuff.
>What's your favourite new release?
What release? I never check for popular pieces, just whatever fits me, fashion can come and go, a good fit can be timeless. Normies don't really care, and that's fine.

>What's your favourite brand and why?
JM, I just go nuts for royal and historical motifs and their textures are to die for
>What's your favourite look/thing to wear right now?
I've been going apeshit buying up 2ndhand cutsews from Milk/ETC/JM for the summer since I've given up on finding new blouses that are cotton or have square/round collars+short sleeves. Cutsew dresses, too.
>What have you bought recently and how do you decide what to buy?
Just a lot of the above from CC, I'm looking for things to survive summer so looking for open necklines, short sleeves, and ivory/offwhite (since I look terrible in stark white).
>What's your favourite new release?
Nothing really comes to mind. I don't tend to buy a lot of main pieces in spring/summer since I like dark main piece colors and motifs. I've been eying Milk's jewelry lately.

Like said above, I'm trying to collect more summer-friendly materials right now, but it feels so hard to find breathable tops in a variety of styles lately? Any recs for blouses without peter pan collars? ETC would always be perfect for summer except almost all their blouses seem to be either PP collar or long sleeves.

>Rivet & Surge (closed last year but you can find stuff secondhand)
DA I'd never heard of this brand but looking them up it's such a shame they've closed, their stuff is adorable! Any other smaller brands that have more jewel tones like this and JM?

>What's your favourite brand and why?
MILK. It feels like everything is made perfectly for my body. The style is like this sweet spot between casual and “kawaii” fashion and the materials are really nice quality.

Other fav brands are Jane Marple, Katie and Qpot.

>What's your favourite look/thing to wear right now?
Longer OPs are my go to for the average work day. Tshirt/cutsew coords for summer.

I also love Milk’s fruit/berry prints. Especially in black x red colorways.

What have you bought recently and how do you decide what to buy?
I’ve been pretty stressed out from my job so I bought a lot lately. I got this >>10628019 in the white colorway with that same leopard print top. And picrel gingham OP in yellow. I got tons of complements on it.

Also the black OP from Jane Marple’s cherry labels series. It’s pretty oversized though so a little out of my comfort zone.

I mostly buy new but there are a few old pieces I’m searching for.

What's your favourite new release?
See above. So far nothing from fall/winter collections really caught my eye.

What would Secret Honey be classified as typically? I bought a dress from them recently, that well.. it's nearly lolita. Fits a petticoat, darker colors so I can't really traditionally think of it as otome. Hearing "soft lolita" makes sense for a lot of things but that term is brand new to me despite being into lolita for years.

What is soft lolita traditionally defined as? I really want to get a grasp on the definition for it.

Better to use girly kei brands blouses for lolita than these taobao crap blouses, wayy cheaper and perfect if you wear lolita daily. Maybe most lolitas that buy from taobao don't wear the fashion daily and treat it as a costume.

What are some cheaper or mid range otome brands to get into it? I love midi length, sailor dresses and Jane Marple which is unfortunately outside my budget right now and also too big for my bust.

She’s been a director of her own brand all this time, with 2 kids. Both her kids are old enough to be in school full time so probably why she’s more active outside of Ruby&You. That pic is old, her hair is below her shoulders and light brown now.

JM goes for so cheap secondhand in the styles you're describing. Would hang out around cc and Mercari. Just keep in mind the resale is p much nothing and very hard to resell. But they're very nice quality and very normiable.

Are there any western stores that sell clothing similar to these styles?

It doesn't go for cheap secondhand these days. The OP I posted sells for around the same price as retail.

JM sailor OPs tend to sell pretty well unless it's cutsew material. The price is much lower in the west but that market is kinda dead for otome.
