I make sure at 87 my engineer makes a Ghost Iron Dragonling (with spec appropriate cogs, ilvl 450) for all my other characters.
When I hit 90, the first thing I do is queue for the Arena scenario and get my free 450 weapon.
You could consider using some PVP gear to bump up your ilvl but don't over do it as the stats are comparable but not ideal for PvE.
Regarding dailies, you will be able to do Klaxxi dailies starting at 89, and everyone else (Tiller, Golden Lotus, Anglers, Krasarang PVP/war effort, Isle of Thunder) at 90. They all have some sort of gear reward (ie you can get a nice 489 ring from Klaxxi if you hit exalted) but you need to go the distance. Most purchasable items are outclassed by heroics or raid gear until you hit exalted.
Otherwise, run heroics until you get to ilvl 460, then do raids.
See my guide in my signature for gearing up.
Helps to what class you are as well.
If you are DPS, just do whatever you can to get to 460 an into LFR. At this point, there will always be enough DPS in a group to make up for what little DPS you may lose for cheating a little with iLvl.
If you are a healer, you can scam the system a little, but I would not suggest more than a point or 2 of iLvl.
If you are a tank, don't even think about it. You really have no "backup" as a tank in LFR.
Really, at this point, dailies are not as big a deal as they were in the beginning. You should be able to hit 460 without any rep gear long before you cap any faction. Still worth doing for the gold, and somewhat for the 5 valor, but they are not a "necessity" anymore.
Get into a sha group, and get the 476 boots. Get the 450 weapon from the scenario, see if you can buy or otherwise get a Ghost Iron Dragonling trinket. And fill in the rest with heroic 463 gear.
You have to/should do the Golden Lotus Rep grind first. Do a google search there are lots of guides.
I play about 4 hours a day. I generally log on at 7pm and play until about 11. Since hitting 90 I have been working on my gear score by LFR and targetting rep gear. right now I am exalted with the Klaxi, and I am working on Golden Lotus and Domination front, while doing the LFR until I have done all the raids that will give me gear.
You will figure out how the valor system works and the various caps as you look into the factions and the rewards..
doing the new isle of thunder dailies is very nice also. the sunreaver faction and shado pan assualt both have higher ilvl VP rewards which can push your ilvl higher quite easily.
