This one was kinda rough to put together. I couldn't find a blouse under $50 that came anywhere close to the one this model has on. The rules for the contest said to keep each item at $100 or less, and I might have found something for $80 or $90 but I know that I won't spend more than $50 on a top and if I'm going to budget shop (which I try not to do on Polyvore! hahaha) I wanted to "buy" items I would potentially wear. So I ended up with a blouse and a skirt, together less than $100 (yay) but from online UK stores....the bag probably cost the most. I had another challenge trying to decide if the shape of the bag or the finish was more important to recreate. Ah, decisions, decisions! In the end, I went with silhouette on all items, by the way.

Very chic! I think you made the right choices. It's all black so silhouette is important in recreating this look. You managed to find a top that has a touch of sheer so you've done very well.
