Once upon a time I was obsessed with a pair of  Derek Lam suede lace up sandals. I saw them on the runway pictures at Style.com and was immediately inspired to seek them out in stores. Unfortunately, they never became mine, probably because at the time they were around $750. Sad.

Then, one day, while browsing The Real Real, a web consignment shop, I saw them again! Derek Lam! Spring 2010! size 7! mint condition! I hit the Buy button the moment I saw that authenticity was not a concern with The Real Real. They arrived at my office and, in typical fashion, I squealed with glee.

Since then, I have been literally checking this site every single day since I bought the Derek Lam lace ups.  If I could find something I've been obsessing over and missed out on the first time around on The Real Real, what else could I find?
