Runway the Cheap Way

In lieu of the first day of spring (even if it is cold out), I've decided to take a look back at the Spring 2008 ready to wear collections. While many of them are now working their ways into stores, not everyone can afford to own these looks (I know I certainly can't). Having nothing else to do today, I've looked through pages and pages of I looked at all 8716 looks) and picked out some of my favorite looks for the Spring season in order to recreate them at more affordable prices and into more casual looks. Here's what I've come up with and I hope you enjoy.You can click the link following each look to find out where to get the clothes from.
