Getting the Runway Look Secondhand - Slouch Gloves

In my time as a tag sale coordinator, I have come across a lot of people who think shopping secondhand means looking like a bag lady in last season's clothes. I'm here to say: That just isn't so. More times than I can remember, I've serendipitously bought something at a tag sale that became the new it thing on the runway or all over the streets of New York. Is it because I'm just that awesome and clairvoyant? A little bit, haha. But mostly it's because designers are informed and inspired by the past the same as the rest of us. I've had a pair of these long, slouchy gloves in my storage space for four months and just when I'm jonesing to wear them is when I'm seeing them all over Style.com:

St. John Fall 2012 RTW via Style.com
Rebecca Taylor Fall 2012 RTW via Style.com
Yigail Azrouel Fall 2012 RTW via Style.com

Charlotte Ronson Fall 2012 RTW via Style.com


Have you guys thrifted anything super hot and on trend recently? I'd love to see!

UPDATE 2/26: Got my gloves out of storage! A picture styled soon, but here's a quick pic until then:
