End-of-Summer Dream Dresses

Plus, a Sample Sale That'll Make Your Wallet Hate You; the Latest Eye Colors for Fall

Sometimes, a Want This must remain unfulfilled, shrouded in nothing but empty-armed longing (or "Wanting," if you will), never to become a Bought This. These Matthew Williamson shifts (were $1,370; now $689.50) are likely to forever remain just out of reach, even at 50 percent off. However, if you've been a little luckier in life than us, the leopard-print dress or the the deco weave shift could be yours from The Outnet. Pair 'em with simplified gladitors now, or leggings in about six weeks. (We're just gonna sulk in the corner now.)

Damn girl, this is the Big One. The one we've been waiting for our whole lives! OK, or more accurately, the past three months. Kate Spade's online sample sale is happening now. We don't care what you get, but in the interest of all things fashionable and/or holy, go getcha self somethin' nice.

Last year it was jewel tones; this year Sephora's calling it for the candy colors. Tread carefully -- meaning aim for this look out of the office and only after dark -- but don't be afraid to experiment before a night out. Colors shown here are City Fog, Baby Blue and Fairy Princess ($12 each), available online or at 3065 M St. N.W.
