Hello Exalted and welcome to the WD community!
90M is a very decent size budget imo.
Before I start, what is your goal for your WD? Are you looking just to do higher MP? Farm lower MP?
And what is your playstyle? Because WD is a pretty diverse class, we have multiple viable builds.
Some examples: ZBears variations (most common), Zdogs (High MP, low paper dps), Proctors (Crowd Control), etc.
Step 1, Read the following thread:
90 mil can get you a good WD. Zero-dog build is out of your price range, so the main decision you will need to make (that will impact gearing) is whether you want to go 1H/Mojo or 2H (likely a Skorn).
In my opinion, "Tier-1" stats for WD are: Int, Vit, AR, CC, CD. "Tier-2" Armor, Attack-Speed.
You will want to get your 4-piece Zuni set bonus for the mana regen. Zuni Chest and boots are pretty much a given. If you go 2H route, your final 2 Zuni pieces will be Ring and Helm. If you go 1H/OH, you will need 2 of Helm/Ring/Mojo. If you go 1H/Mojo, make sure your mojo has mana regen.

If you are trying to gear for pvp. I'd advise you till the patch goes live.
Currently SOJ prices for Haunt and SB are ridiculous.
A few pieces of gear that are pretty much standard, whether it's pvp or pve IMO are:
Vile Ward - High INT rolls, standard AR, Life Regen & Armor.
Other pieces are still questionable, since we don't know exactly when they will implement damage reduction into pvp.
If you REALLY want to invest now it would be:
SOJ's w/ Haunt or SB
Uhk Serpent with high Average damage + Haunt or SB.
I personally would probably be stacking Life Regen over LOH or LS. So weapon choice can vary. In PVE for WD's, attack speed is not the most sought after stat (Unless you're Zdog Spec) but in PVP I believe maximizing Attack speed would give you a upper hand. These are just assumptions since I have no tried it out myself unfortunately.
