What goth/gothic-lolita oriented brands have people found to be durable and good quality? Seems like there's an awful lot of crap out there, and I refuse to spend that much money unless I'm fairly confident the clothing will survive me. I'm particularly curious about Atlier Boz, Miho Matsuda (if I can fit into any of it), BPN, MAM, Millfleurs and Visible. Also, does anyone recommend any brands that offer simpler, more work-friendly styles?
Btw, anyone planning to do a shopping trip at some point? Would be cool to find some shopping buddies.:-)
