Thrift stores are a mega-house for the seasons hottest trends. I find it so hard to buy retail when I can find the same piece resale. Plus my mom is so quick to boast, "I used to wear _______ (insert any item) when I was your age".
My top trend to thrift for this season is the CAPE. It screams sophistication. It looks so warm and cozy. I recently experienced my first (and hopefully last) bout of thrifting envy, when I saw a fellow thrifter score an amazing hooded cape. Yes I am on a mission now!! I will find one soon.
I also want a pair of COLORED PANTS. Red, pink or mustard yellow pants, either will be the perfect pop of color on a cold wintry morning. I already have a gorgeous red velvet maxi skirt, but my wardrobe is lonely without a pair of bright colored pants.

Lastly, I am searching for a pair of LEATHER SHORTS. Leather is one of my fall staples! I need a pair of shorts to complete my leather wardrobe capsule. I plan to pair my leather shorts with a soft pussy bow blouse and textured tights. Shorts make a perfect alternative to the mini skirt.

What trends are you thrifting for or did you already score an amazing piece? Is there is certain "trendy" piece that you would only buy resale vs retail?
