hehe ok for those who want to know ive found a couple of answers..

Gothic Lolita:
●black,dark blues,purple(violet) and white
●occasional lace,chains,or frills(but not a lot)
●long hair(black sometimes)
●short or long skirts
●long overcoat
●accessories, like bags and purses,
●are often in uncommon shapes like
●bats, coffins, and crucifixes.
●makeup is not heavy or dramatic
●less detailed fabric .
●footwear includes boots/platforms
●cross motif designs
●veils

●Punk Lolita:
●red,black,and white
●tattered fabric
●safety pins,spikes,& chains
●screen-printed fabrics
●plaids(used very often with punk lolita)
●short, androgynous hairstyles
●dresses and jumper skirts
●blouses or cutsews and skirts
●This is the only lolita style where
big stompy boots really fit, but honestly
any shoes work for punk lolita so long
as you have other lolita elements in your outfit...

I usually just cut it down to gothic lolita has more romantic, gothic influences, while punk has more punk rocker influences. With any lolita substyle, your hair can be of any length, but you never have overly-dramatic makeup

In Gothic Lolita, there really isn't red. Its more of deep purples, blues, and of course, black.

And, Gothic Lolita is coordinated and elegant, Punk Lolita is mismatchy.

And, Punk lolita isn't a style to try if your a beginner.

Gothic Lolita will occasionally have red, but in very small amounts and it usually looks strange. Punk on the other hand, has lots of red plaid. Mixing the tough Punk style and the cute/elegant Lolita is difficult to pull off. Not a good idea for a first attempt.

^^;; I wouldn't buy from them. Or at least, for lolita. Not until you REALLY know what your doing. Their stuff isn't really lolita.
AND HOT TOPIC IS NOT PUNK D:
ESPECIALLY NOT PUNK LOLITA! D:

Please, keep the Hot Topic FAR from lolita.

umm i agree with narkumi about hot topic being a really good place to buy clothes but they dont specialize in lolita so im guessing that its not the best place to buy lolita especially since punk lolita is one of the hardest styles.(in my opinion)But it seems Michi_Michi knows her fair share of lolita style so im sure she also knows that when starting off with lolita its okay to make mistakes when chosing the right clothing for the lolita style that you like...sorry to intrude by the way..

Hot Topic... O.O They sell total junk. I buy mostly all my stuff from Meta's online shop. That said, I don't wear lolita that often, so I only have about three dresses...
