One of my favorite standbys in Cosmopolitan is the "What You Could Have Bought" section. Each month you get to find out how forgoing seemingly insignificant expenses such as ATM fees, coffee, and vending machine items saves you enough cash to spring for something fun. The July issue reveals that cutting out fast food meals twice a week will save you a whopping $768 a year, enough to score 16 sundresses! My imagination really started running with that one, and before long I found myself trying to come up with enough places to wear such a wardrobe! Thus inspired, I scoured the Web for the sunniest, splashiest frocks that Cyberspace had to offer and posted the best ones here for your viewing pleasure. (I meant to stop at 16 but couldn't help myself and ended up with close to 30!)

I like the colours of the first and third.

Those are my favorites too! I like the bold, graphic feel of them. I actually thought about buying the first one (why, I don't know, as I have nowhere to wear it and a closet full of similarly fancy and unworn frocks), but it was sold out.
