    Athough I didn’t win, I still loved this contest! It was fun and interactive. I liked coming up with random creative names for each dress.

    • Dyanni 05/11/2012 at 8:20 am #

      I’m just wondering, did Erin C. answer before I did at 3:29pm on facebook? Because I had the same answer but she won 🙁

    • Nichole 05/12/2012 at 8:55 pm #

      I totally agree with you!! I hope ModCloth has more of these contests in the future!!

  2. Marisol 05/11/2012 at 8:47 am #

    I agree too even though I would have loved to win it was pretty fun.

  3. enbar 05/11/2012 at 8:53 am #

    didnt win but it was still a lot of fun

  4. Joanna 05/11/2012 at 9:01 am #

    The “Name It and Win It” contests are always my favorite, not only do you get to stretch your creative legs, but it is also an exercise in thinking the Modcloth way (what would Modcloth name this garment?) In regards to the different social platforms, I liked the variety, although I felt that it was a little disjointed and felt that the tumblr and instagram were the hardest to get involved in, however it was great fun!

  5. Alexa K. 05/11/2012 at 10:27 am #

    Thank you so much, ModCloth! This was super fun!

  6. Anna Yeatts 05/11/2012 at 10:47 am #

    The winning names are great. Kudos to the lucky ducks who won dresses! Nice job!

  7. Tatiana 05/11/2012 at 12:03 pm #

    I loved getting my creative juices flowing. There some great names from what I read. I agree that Instagram and Tumblr were a little harder to get involved,but overall loved the contest.

    i like contests too…they’re fun, even if you don’t win, but i gave up at twitter…i just totally do not get twitter. i don’t really think i understand how it works, and i don’t find it appealing enough to try to figure it out. when i went on, i just saw a list of seemingly random posts, and i couldn’t find an image of the day’s dress. o well!?!

    • Cyndee Wenzel 05/11/2012 at 3:06 pm #

      Hi Debra, once you were on Twitter you had to type in #niawi.

  9. Jess 05/11/2012 at 1:47 pm #

    Not to be a sore loser, but I actually tweeted “Lost in Austin” before @giantspatula… love, @imadeajess

  10. Chris G. 05/11/2012 at 2:12 pm #

    Have always loved your dresses…and the chance to help name one was great!! Thanks!!

  11. Tivra A. Marks 05/11/2012 at 3:41 pm #

    oh man I loved my name on twitter but I realize that I don’t think it made it in cause I have never used twitter before! I even made an account just for the contest!

  12. Eliza 05/11/2012 at 5:09 pm #

    I loved this contest….congrats to the winners! 🙂

  13. Jacky 05/11/2012 at 9:39 pm #

    That dress is not Lavender.

    • Saddie 05/13/2012 at 9:52 am #

      I agree, but what color best discribes it?

    • babyblanka 05/15/2012 at 8:42 am #

      Blue, lol. I bought it – and it’s definitely baby blue.

    • Eileen 05/15/2012 at 9:27 pm #

      Yeah, doesn’t look lavender on my screen 🙁

  14. Melissa 05/12/2012 at 1:42 pm #

    Thank you ModCloth for the creative interlude my brain needed! I was just telling a friend how fun it would be to have a job naming these dresses and the next week was your contest! It was worth signing up for the various social media sites, I had fun learning about them. Instagram is so fun for photos! Please put on another name it contest!

  15. Fae 05/12/2012 at 4:21 pm #

    Wow! I can’t believe my name was picked on Tumblr! How do you guys get my shipping and sizing information though? Will an ask be sent on there?

    • ModCloth 05/14/2012 at 10:34 am #

      Hi, Fae! We sent you a Tumblr message on Thursday, but will send you an e-mail ASAP so you can get your dress. Congrats on your win, and thanks so much for playing!

    • Fae 05/14/2012 at 11:51 am #

      Really? Huh, tumblr’s messaging system is known for being buggy sometimes so I never got it! Haha, alrighty, thank you!

  16. Megan 05/12/2012 at 4:22 pm #

    Did we have to publicly post our names for the dresses on facebook, twitter, etc? I only posted in the entry form. …

  17. Saddie 05/13/2012 at 9:48 am #

    I think that the Fine Hearts Student Dress was a poor choice….There were far better posts to name this dress..

  18. Rachel 05/13/2012 at 4:55 pm #

    I didn’t like the different platforms. I only did the blog day because I couldn’t find the Facebook entry or the Twitter entry and I use both of those programs regularly. Next time, I vote keep it to the blog comments!

  19. elizabethhanna 05/14/2012 at 12:26 am #

    I loved this idea! Unfortunately I didn’t see the blog post until Thursday so only had the chance to do Tumblr, as opposed to that plus the blog and Facebook, but I think the different social media gives everyone some chance at least! I would definitely participate again!

  20. Alexa K. 05/15/2012 at 6:49 am #

    I also haven’t received any e-mails or notifications about the dress I won. Will I be e-mailed about the sizing and shipping information? How does this work?

  21. Bridget McDonald 05/15/2012 at 2:09 pm #

    Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t understand what ‘Fine Hearts Student Dress’ means? Not trying to be a sore loser, I’m genuinely curious.

    • Alexa 05/15/2012 at 3:15 pm #

      It’s a sound and a visual pun on a fine arts student.

    • Alexa 05/15/2012 at 3:16 pm #

      By the way, I’m not the same Alexa as the person who won, hahaha, just happened to have the same name!
