Every day a new dress or two is born on ModCloth and this one is extra special because YOU helped us name it. We were absolutely blown away with the sheer number of responses (818!), not to mention how clever and creative they all were. We noticed that a lot of you were inspired to name this dress something French, while others thought it could have been a staple in any flapper’s wardrobe. For many of you, the cute cut of the dress reminded you of school and we even saw our fair share of literary references (yay!). But sadly there could only be one winner, so without further ado, ModCloth proudly presents…
We chose this name because the witty wordplay fits the dress perfectly and it channels such a lovely woman, the silent movie star and “it girl” of the Roaring 20s, Ms. Clara Bow. Winner Opal Ray even included a picture of Ms. Bow wearing a dress that bears a striking resemblance to our own little gray one.
Honorable mentions include “Stella by Starlight, ” “The Mass Romantic,” and “The Dusty Springfield.”
So, congratulations Opal, and thank you to everyone who participated! It was our most successful contest to date and we loved reading through each and every one of your comments. As promised, you have all received your first A+ of the year!
