Hey Seattle, someone has validated your bad habit: Fashion guru Tim Gunn says it’s okay to wear jeans to work. Well, sometimes. This weekend, Gunn will explain why (plus give other great tips on how to work your denim) at a Lucky Brand denim fashion show in center court at Bellevue Square (Saturday starting at 1 p.m.; more info here). Shoppers can soak in Gunn’s tips while watching a fashion show (featuring real people!), then head up to Lucky to snag their own pair and meet the man himself.

Local salons are taking Portlandia’s “Put a Bird on It” mantra to heart (or rather, to hair) with a new, hippie-chic twist on the clip-on extension: feather extensions. Made from rooster feathers, the extensions come in many colors, range in size from subtle to Big Bird, and take about ten minutes to attach, using a cold-fusion clamping system that doesn’t damage hair (prices start around $20–$35). The feathers last up to eight weeks and are both washable and heat-styling tolerant—all the better to combat flyaways. Get a bird’s-eye view of this tress trend at the following salons.

WHY WE LOVE HIS LOOK: Fashion stylist Alvin Stillwell is paid to make starlets such as Ashley Tisdale and Jamie Alexander shine, but his personal style grabs its own spotlight—a look that’s comfy yet cultured, a sun-drenched beach boy meets twee Alfalfa. His longtime Northwest style staples, which include form-fitting designer blazers in unexpected plaids and whites, and his oh-so Seattle chunky specs, have been infused with a Pacific Coast beach vibe (the longtime Rainier Beach resident now splits his time between L.A. and Seattle for work).
