I have set a new sartorial goal for myself — and that is to own a Chanel bag before the end of 2017 (at an affordable price, of course). However, I've always been apprehensive about browsing the web for pre-owned goods for fear of buying a fake. Fortunately, The RealReal, a luxury consignment website with shops in New York and the San Fransisco Bay area, has a rigorous process for spotting counterfeit luxury products — which allows their customers to shop for quality items with peace of mind.
The RealReal has debuted it's improved Influencer Program, which features new and exciting perks you won't want to miss — like getting the chance to earn some extra cash. Not too shabby, huh?! Be sure to check out the program right here and join in on the fun!
As a new The RealReal influencer, I'm excited to browse their site for some of my favorite trends from New York Fashion Week.
There are a few standouts that have already caught my eyes, like these bold and textured stripes (above) seen on the runways of Rosie Assoulin, Proenza Schouler and Opening Ceremony.
I'm also crushing on the radical ruffles trend, which was spotted at the 3.1 Phillip Lim, Tome and J. Crew fashion shows. Think asymmetrical tops, dresses and flouncy skirts. Ruffles are always a great idea for spring, don't you agree?
Oxfords were everywhere at NYFW, but not the classic button-down styles we're used to seeing in corporate America. Designers like Monse, Claudia Li and Self-Portrait showcased a collection of enhanced silhouettes and off-the-shoulder styles. Talk about breaking the rules!
Athleisure influences also made an appearance this season, not that I'm surprised since the trend has been steadily gaining popularity thanks to celebs like Gigi Hadid and Kate Hudson. Of course, DKNY, Lacoste and Alexander Wang did not veer off course from their usual sports-inspired apparel. Hey, if it's not broken...
