Happy Friday! I’m going to leave you with two super quick nuggets today because I’m busy filing the awesome Seamless in Seattle applications as they come in. (Hey, you still have time to get those applications in. We’re at the office until 6 pm tonight, and I’ll take apps via email until 11:59 p.m. Full contest details here.)

In case you missed our big, mid-week announcement, let me bang you over the head with it: We are putting on our own Seamless in Seattle fashion show on Wednesday, June 8! We’re combing the city for the best up-and-coming fashion designers hungry to change the face of local fashion and once again we’re offering big prizes, winners will appear in a fashion spread in the September 2011 Seattle magazine. This year’s deadline is just one short week away on Friday, April 15.

If you follow me on Twitter you know I’ve been a bit cryptic lately because I have a big, big secret to spill: We’re putting on a Seamless in Seattle fashion show. We’re combing the city for the best up-and-coming fashion designers hungry to change the face of local fashion and once again we’re offering big prizes, winners will appear in a fashion spread in the September 2011 Seattle magazine. This year’s deadline is just one short week away on Friday, April 15.

April is here, which means the Seamless in Seattle deadline is fast approaching with just 15 more days to get your applications in. If I may be so bold, I would really encourage all your emerging designers to enter, because this year, well this year we have a serious new development up our sleeve. Check back here Wednesday, April 6 for the big announcement. (Since I’m bursting, I’ll give you one hint: you’ll need to buy a ticket.)

I’m just going to put out there: I don’t want to pretend this isn’t a tough Friday, many of us are deeply saddened and all hopes, prayers and thoughts are focused on our neighbors in Japan. We’re going to soldier on with Fashion Friday as usual, but if you’ll forgive me, I’m going to skip past the quirky, cheerful intro and dive right in. Okay?

I will get up early on Saturday mornings—but it had better be for a darn good reason (because otherwise, sleep, reading the paper and drinking approximately 5 cups of coffee is the name of the game). However, it is well worth my time—and yours too—to get up early, grab that latte to go and get down to the downtown Nordstrom tomorrow for their Spring 2011 Cosmetics Trend Show. Starting bright and early at 8 a.m., Nordstrom experts will preview new spring colors and share makeup tips at the 2-hour long event.

We’re playing with numbers this week on Fashion Friday, it’s like good ol’ Sesame Street says: ‘The number of the day is 5.’ As in five, exciting, fun tidbits for share with you this week:

The Field House interior
This was a week of exciting expansions, remodels and moves for some of our favorite boutiques: As Karen Johnson reported on Wednesday, Blackbird is jumping on the Portlandia bandwagon and will open the first Blackbird enterprise outside of Ballard in PDX this summer. (Great news for us Oregon natives often stuck in the Portland I-5 slog; from now on find me hanging out at the Bird between 5-7 p.m. taking a break from the haul to Eugene).

Blackbird and Field House owner Nicole Miller announced she’s expanding her retail empire to Portland. The new shop (Burnside and NW 13th Ave.), which opens early this summer, is two blocks from Ace Hotel (another Seattle-based lifestyle business with a PDX outpost), and sure to attract throngs of Portland-loving tourists who will no doubt be spending time in the Rose City, thanks to this new show.
