A gorgeous cream-colored Chloe handbag and a boho-chic Anthropologie top with intricate beading and embroidery are the kinds of treasures you could score at Rock Paper Scissors. The well-organized shop has items that feel so current. It's a place where you could put together twice as many outfits as buying new. Wade through brands such as GAP, J. Crew, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor, and discover less expensive pieces that are super-interesting and catch the eye. | www.rpsconsign.com

A pair of new-with-tags J. Crew Betty sunglasses in an iridescent cream await you at Urban Exchange. If that doesn't speak to you, maybe the simplicity of a V-neck Madewell tunic would add a classic touch to your closest. You might find these kinds of items among the roughly 1,700 pieces of circulating inventory. The shop is small, but mighty—with a wall of premium denim and the legendary Epic Sale on August 18, when everything is $5. | www.myurbanexchange.com
