Sartorially speaking, there's nothing quite like that feeling of excitement and satisfaction you get when you manage to score a quality designer piece at a great price. Particularly when that item is trending, about to become huge, or will last you a lifetime.
This season, there are a few items I've been eager to invest in: Think Carrie Bradshaw–style bags (baguettes, embellished shoulder styles, logo-covered picks), not to mention a supple leather jacket, gorgeous slouchy boots, silk scarves, and a posh pair of long gloves (they're trending right now, and they're très sophistiqué).
I did a little digging at one of my favorite luxury consignment stores, The RealReal, to see if I could snag any of the items on my wardrobe wish list for less, and the e-tailer delivered. Scroll to shop the trending items I unearthed, and remember: They disappear quickly, so if you have your heart set on something, scoop it up ASAP!
