The $100 or Less Stylist Challenge
This works similar to the "Polyvore Stylist Challenge" thread, except the item that is posted must be much less than $100, as the point of this contest is to create an entire outfit for $100.00 or less.

If you need a refresher on the rules they are as follows:
- each week, 1 item is posted which can be found either on polyvore.com or elsewhere online
- using either polyvore, or by simply posting the pictures of the items, create an outfit (remember to credit sources)
-at the end of the week, once voting has been opened, the entrant with the highest number of votes gets to pick the next challenge item

you can enter up to 2 entries...and just use the "number value", not the actual currency value

so all of the ither items must add up to 85[price] or less

^ I can't wait to see you guys do this ... in order to meet this budget IRL I think I would have to incorporate things from the "not new shop" as my relatives call it :p ... which is hard to do online on the cheap ...

PS I recommend everyone do this in euros

since it is too difficult to convert, just go by the "number value", rather than the actual $ value

for example: the skirt i used was "25" plus the "6" shirt
