Have you dreamed of strutting down the sidewalks in red-soled Louboutins? Or do you wish you could channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with a perfect pair of Manolos? Don't think their price point is out of reach, because you can get a pair of pre-loved discount designer shoes for far less than your rent check. Companies like ThredUP and Vestiaire Collective are making luxury shoes, handbags, and accessories more accessible to all of us.
Every month we're picking our favorite finds of pre-owned, great quality, designer bags, shoes, and more... but you're going to have to hurry to snag them before someone else scoops them up!
From street style stars to the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, we can't seem to escape the trend that is micro purses. In the time we took trying to figure out how to fit anything other than our cell phone in these tiny little bags to toying with our emotions towards hanging up our favorite totes, designer brands have crafted up the perfect little (emphasis on the little) bags of our dreams and we're finally ready to hop on the mini bag bandwagon. Are you?
Editors' Top Finds
Leather has always been—and probably always will be—a key component of any winter wardrobe. But this season, it seems we’re getting an even heavier dose of Rock ‘n’ Roll. From revised motorcycle jackets and leather-trimmed tees to all manners of perforated and paneled, there’s something for everyone this fall.
Learning the rules of style you can (and should) break can boost your confidence and help you develop a chic look of your very own. Many fashion rules were designed for a different era, and these 10 outdated guidelines are ones even the world's most stylish women aren't afraid to break.
This fall is all about going bold. Play with textures like velvet, leather, and tartan plaid. Try out graphic crop tops layered under denim dungarees. Footwear sees a return to chunky boots.

Here are a few of our favorite fall fashion trends being rocked by tough girls and pointers for wearing them yourself.

Picture your perfect pair of 5-inch heels and how easily it is to walk around all day in them, running from errand to errand. Yeah, we can't imagine that either. We’re taking it down an inch, or four, with the latest craze: low, mid, and kitten heels. Don’t get it twisted, we love our high-heeled leg lengtheners, but strutting from place to place at a snail’s pace isn’t practical for a girl on the go. Which is why we’re tipping our hats—and lowering our heels—to high fashion’s renewed sense of comfort-meets-style.
