Recent and coming weeks are practically overloaded with a bevy of fashion and shopping events that are near-guaranteed awesome. But you’re gonna want to make room in your schedule for this one. Gilt—our favorite flash sale site and a daily lunchtime distraction—brings its twice-yearly warehouse sale back to Long View Gallery on October 18 and 19. What you’ll find: the usual cocktails and refreshments, a deejay, and—best part—such big-time brands as Zac Posen, Missoni, Vera Wang, and more, discounted up to 90 percent. Though the limited number of tickets for the early entrances on Friday night and Saturday early morning may be sold out, you can still snag admission starting at 11 on Saturday for just $10.
Gilt City Warehouse Sale, October 18 and 19. Long View Gallery, 1234 Ninth St., NW. $10 at Gilt City DC.
