Last evening, DC's most fashion-forward females (and a few gents) gathered in Georgetown for the annual District Sample Sale, a charitable event featuring 23 local boutiques, numerous corporate sponsors and a silent auction, all to benefit GW Mammovan. Guests snatched up summer and fall merchandise at prices of up to 90% off from stores like Urban Chic, Wink, Simply Soles, Ginger and Sangaree while sipping champagne, signature cocktails from soon-to-open bar Dirty Martini and apps from restos like Morso, Ping Pong Dim Sum, Neyla, Georgetown Cupcake and more. For the more aesthetically-minded, numerous photography stations allowed for red carpet-esque posing in new finds after primping with comp styling from One80, mani stations from Deborah Lippman and a Le Metier de Beaute lip and makeup bar.
While bad weather unfortunately prevented Deacon from finding a parking space and fully taking advantage of the VIP hour, we still managed to do some significant damage, plus chat with local notables including Kelly Collis Frederick, Stephanie Green, Wendy Gordon, Michael Wostehoff and Erin Hartigan. We also spotted Real Housewives of DC's Mary Amons (with massive bodyguard in tow??) and Stacie Turner as well as 107.3's Tommy McFly and Blonde Charity Mafia's Katherine Kennedy.
