Lusting For Drape

While I have an inspiration folder on my computer (our age's scrapbooking) full of outfits to look at, I usually take a sense from each of them, rather than a copy. I save looks I like and capture the spirit with my own clothes, whether it is wonderfully mixed prints, or a sense of proportion and layering, it's about using someone else's outfit to create my own. It's very rare I just want to copy something from head-to-toe...this McQ by McQueen outfit is an exception. If I could just afford to I would buy the dress and sequin (!) leggings in an instant. Unfortunately, I can not, so instead I'm curious about re-creating it for myself.

I love Grecian draping (have forever basically), but it is so hard to find good draped pieces at affordable prices. If anyone knows where a dress like this is at, feel free to share...

P.S. Wouldn't it look brilliant with a DIY bodychain like Lulu's layered on top?
