Celebrity and blogger style is to die for, but let's face it: Most of the time they're wearing brands that are far out of our price ranges. So what's a stylish girl to do? Enter in companies like ThredUP and Vestiaire Collective who are selling designer shoes, handbags, and accessories for a fraction of the retail price.
Every month we're pulling pre-owned luxury finds we can't get enough of. What's old is always new again with fashion, but you have to act fast because these deals sell faster than the blink of an eye.
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?

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!
