Hey Divas! I have an idea that may be fun to participate in!

Let's create outfits for each other based on a certain theme- and- under a certain budget.

You can choose from any of the following themes.

First Date
Lunch (or Dinner) with the girls
Night on the Town
It's my Birthday
Chilly New York evening
Spring is in the Air


Feel free to choose a theme of your own- just give it a name and let us know what it is!

Here are the rules and instructions:
1) Outfit must be within budget ( no more than $10 over!!!!)
2) Tell us where each piece is from (website), and how much it costs.
3) Add accessories when/where you can to add flair
4) Save pictures of the pieces, open them in MS Paint together (so that we can see all the pieces in the same screen) and upload the MS Paint image into imageshack (http://www.imageshack.us/)
5) Post the the image here with all of the req'd details!!!

This should be fun ladies- hope to see some participation :)

I chose a Lunch with the Girls - also I have a Mac and no MS paint so I improvised on loading the image.

Purse (Begborrowsteal.com) - Isabella Fiore
The blouse and pants are no longer available at forever 21 but they have to be around 60 bucks combined...for a total of around 117...this is not including the purse which I found out is only available to be borrowed but I could find a similar purse with the 80 dollars left over.

Someone else may do it more efficiently but, what I do is open up two MS paint windows, then I open the pictures up in one window, then paste them into the other window one at a time. then I just save the other window as a picture file once I've pasted all the images into it.

But, like I said there's probably a better way- just how I do it for now!
