From The Runway To eBay: How To Get The (More Original) Look For Less

There's no better time to reinvent your look and your closet than on the eve of fall. By now, you're probably hankering to pull out your favorite cardis and dark jeans (we're feeling it, too), but until that first chill sets in, there's still plenty of time to fill in the blanks and update what you've got with a few of our favorite fall trends.

Instead of heading straight to the shops, we decided to do some hunting online in our mecca of recycled fashion finds--eBay. From the most eclectic lace to fall/winter's ultimate street-chic leather looks, we've found some clever ways to get the look without the big bill at the end of the month. Note: Stay tuned for more Fall Checklist features every week as we count down to fall, helping you get prepped for the season in all the right ways.
