With a little money, you can take me right off the runway. by monkeyonice679 wants peace☮ on Polyvore.com
I couldn't find a leopard sweater that was under budget.
ANYWHERE. So sorry. :P
This was a super hard challenge. Christopher Kane made everything scalloped, which I was unable to find.
total was $434.60
This dress stood out to me from Alexander McQueen's spring collection, because it was so cool and futuristic. So I tried to make this set kinda futuristic to go along with that theme. I couldn't find a zippered dress so I incorporated the zippers elsewhere in the set.

I do these look for less things all the time, and I usually only spend $200 max. But, since we were given $500 and I had a lot of money left after the outfit, I splurged a bit and went full out on the makeup.
Now, onto the my designer. I got John Galliano. He's not my favorite designer (ahem Luella) but I do love him anyway. This was really challenging because his runway looks are probably the most OUT THERE ready to wear fashions.
I chose a look from his Spring 2009 RTW collectin. His spring line is described by Sarah Mower on style.com as inspired by "outrageous Regency cartoons of silly fashions from the Napoleonic war era, giant plumed military helmets, overblown mob-caps, and indecently transparent dresses. Sorted. (Oh, apart from the Queen Mummery, which equals the sweet pea florals, of course.)"
note: the belt is worn over the blouse at the waist where the seam is. the skirt should be worn as a high waist so that it will be at knee length. dont mind the heels haha. i needed something funky fresh a la john galliano and all his craziness. :) i think he would appreciate those killer platforms.

white tights, which didn't show anyway so I hid them. They're part of the outfit but cannot be seen against a white background, sorry : $26.99
plaid top[worn underneath, duh lol] $19.90
[I doubt the lipstick is $200.. and the blush: $44 they're unneccessary for the outfit, but the model is wearing both.]

YAY. I made it and under budget.
I really love Chanel. Just not their ready to wear. Because it was really bleh. and kinda boring. I know, it's freaking KARL. But the RTW was driving me wild. Therefore this was made. :/
