Pull it Off: Style on a Budget

Have you ever seen a model on a runway or in a magazine spread wearing that perfect designer outfit that is so outside your price range that even trying to replicate it seems fruitless? 

Or maybe you've seen a more outlandish look on a model and thought to yourself, "I could work that, only better." 

Now we want you to put your creativity to the test and your money where your mouth is. 

We'll inspire you with a hot, designer look from fashion week, and in return you will recreate or reinterpret it -- while still maintaining the outfit's original integrity -- on a shoestring budget.  But now you're only half-way done.

Next, you will strike your best pose in your sexy new look, send us a clear snap shot, and tell us what appealed to you most about the original look, how you constructed it on the cheap (where you purchased the clothes and accessories and how little they cost), how comfortable you are in your new creation, and where you would wear it out.
