Create A Complete Black-Tie Outfit Under $200

So, you've got the Prince's ball coming up (or possibly more likely a fancy wedding or charity gala for non-princess types), but unlike Cinderella, you don't have an entire woodland forest's worth of creatures to help you whip up a dress out of discarded scraps and sashes. However, you've got us, and we're going to help you look red-carpet-ready armed with under $200. That's right — from the dress to the shoes to the extra bits of sparkle, we've whipped up three complete head-to-toe outfits that'll cost you less than what some of you paid for a prom dress in high school. The only thing we can't help you with is Prince Charming… but who needs him when we hear that Justin Timberlake is a fan of black tie events?
