Deacon must admit, the Media Mavens bash last night was a rousing success.
Here are the down n' dirty deets, in case you missed it: The party was a rockin event sponsored by Washington's many fashion bloggers, as well as a charity fund raiser for a local event called Blondes vs. Brunettes, where young women compete in a powder puff football game to raise funds for the National Capital Area Alzheimer's Association.
If you weren't there: you missed a great DJ spinning club and Top-40 style favorite tunes, plus a gratis buffet on the second level with dishes like jerk shrimp, mini crab cakes, and an array of pasta dishes. Most guests (see photos below, they were all fashionably attired) sipped wine or champagne while mingling, networking, and perusing StoreAdore maps of DC shops or complimentary copies of The Washington Post's new magazine, Fashion Washington.
Local bloggeristas (is that a word) like ANotSoCaptiolIdea, Project Beltway, The Glamazon Diaries, K Street Kate, Greg's List and the DC City Blog showed up in force for the event. Be sure to check their links later today for their own coverage of the event.
We're sad if you couldn't make it, but check out these great photos, below:

Grace and Alexandra were too fashionable to pass by without a photo.
Most of the evening's stylistas wore black ... DC's favorite color.
Yours truly and event coordinator for The Park (and former InTouch Weekly reporter!) Laura Carlson ... we're posing with Teddy, the mascot of the Washington Nationals baseball team. She's wearing a brand new dress from Intermix, where StoreAdore readers get $50 off purchases of $350 or more online with code ADORE at checkout.
Anna Stump and Ali Hines were excited to support local bloggers.
Even more stylish friends at the event.
