Reboot your Geek Style: Nominations open for a once-in-a-lifetime pampering experience before next week’s GeekWire Gala

Got the winter blues? Or just need a relaxing day of pampering?

Two lucky geeks — one man, one woman — will get treated to an amazing day of pampering on Wednesday, Dec. 6, in advance of our GeekWire Gala at the Museum of History & Industry in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.

The two winners will spend a half day at the downtown Seattle Nordstrom store, meeting with a personal stylist who will select a special outfit for them to wear to that evening’s Gala. They will also receive an in-depth consult with a beauty stylist at Nordstrom, and be treated to a wonderful experience at Spa Nordstrom.

Sounds fabulous, right?

If interested, please fill out the below questions, and email your nominations to [email protected] with the subject line “I need a Geek Style Reboot” by the nomination deadline of 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1. Here’s what we need from you:

  • Submit your geekiest photo(s).
  • Describe why you’re the hardest working geek in town, and need a day of pampering.
  • Who’s your style icon — real or imaginary?
  • What’s your favorite work uniform? (Photo, please)
  • Describe Seattle style.
  • What’s your favorite accessory?
  • Company and job title.

Please note: The two winners of this once-in-a-lifetime pampering experience will need to be available from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6, and must be comfortable with a GeekWire reporter covering aspects of the fashion and styling reboot. The winners will each receive two complimentary tickets to the Gala, and be asked to come on stage, so the nearly 1,000 party-goers can see the reboot first hand.

So, what are you waiting for! Time for a refresh and reboot.
