My blogworld/realworld friend Amos gave up his identity as one of the two writers behind FamousDC, one of the local blogosphere’s best-kept secrets. It doesn’t really get more Washington-media-meta than this: two politically savvy PR/technology whiz kids start blog, build essential buzz for their brand via close media contacts and friends, many of whom likely also blog for them; become local media-technology heroes and continue on the up-and-up when they pitch their reveal to Washington’s most widely recognized magazine, Washingtonian. Check out my FamousDC here. (Michelle, my offer stands stands)

Congratulations on the years of success guys – stay Famous.

*good photo guys except, Amos, you kiiiimda look like you’re wearing earrings.

This announcement is very close to my heart as I worked for JDRF for four years. They do such amazing work. If you have Christmas shopping left to do, stop by J.Crew today/this evening. Everyone likes cashmere! Details:

Thought I’d post the photos from the Fashion District show before we move on to other things. Here’s me hiding for no random reason underneath the giant, amazing fox fur capelet I wore the night of the show. Did I mention that it was AMAZING? Also check out the video ReadySet produced for the show that makes the whole thing look even more glam than it was (it was very cool and glam….that said, I changed in a supply closet). So you can get an idea of the styling of my outfit, I’m including some shots of me from the day I styled it up at Mercedes Bien (no makeup…oh well). More event pics after the jump!
