Winners of the Red Letter Days Name It and Win It Contest

Well, the Red Letter Days Name It and Win It Contest is over, and the grades are in.  A+ for effort, 4.0 for creativity, and 100% for inventive ideas. Sadly, we could only put one person per day on the Red Letter Days “honor roll,” despite the innumerably ingenious entries.

In the case that a single name was suggested by more than one participant, the first person to post was accredited as the winner.

Now, drumroll, please… the winners are…

Day One: “Applause Is Welcome Dress” by Christa

Day Two: “Brambleberry Dreams Dress” by Heather

Day Three: “We the Purple Purse” by Angelica

Day Four: “More Than a Tealing Skirt” by Rachel

Day Five: ” Keep the Car-digan Running” by Emma

Congratulations to the winners, and a big thank you to all who participated in this contest!

    Brambleberry Dreams – good one! I drank some delicious brambleberry wine recently in the Finger Lakes and bought some brambleberry lipgloss, too! I may need a dress to match! 🙂

    “We the Purple”–ha ha! I think that’s my favorite. 🙂

    I’ll let you in on a secret: I’m rather glad I didn’t win that one, because the Friday of the contest week I found a somewhat similar, just-as-purple purse for $4 at my favorite thrift store! I had to get it, even though if by some chance my name had been picked for this purse, I don’t know what I’d have done with 2 of them! 😉 –Though it is a way more versatile color that you’d think, at first glance. 😀

    Anyway, congrats, winners! I know you’ll enjoy your winnings!

    Snore. The only good one that won is “We the Purple Purse.” There were so many better names….But that’s just IMO.

    I agree with Rachel, I also do not care for the names picked. I know that they are just names, and of course I am sad mine were not picked… BUT I feel that there were WAY better choices out there. The only one that I can really say I like is the “Brambleberry Dreams”. If someone would like to explain how the other names fit the items, please do! Maybe I’m just not getting it?

    Don’t quite fancy the names, especially for the last 2 & the 1st. More than a tealing skirt, what does it mean? Is it a pun or a play on a word? The cardigan is super cute, the name just doesn’t describe anything about the cardigan. As for the 1st, applause is welcome, doesn’t describe how pretty the cutouts are.

    Love the contest though, keep them coming, would want to try my luck again!

    Joy, the skirt is a play on “More Than a Feeling.” The name for the cardigan is after an Arcade Fire song, and yeah, it doesn’t describe ANYTHING about the cardigan, but, they like pop culture and music references… so… keep that in mind next time. 😛

    ha! i agree my favorite is def ‘Keep the Car-digan Running’

    I think all the names are great- and as for them not exactly describing the details- shrug- plenty of modcloth descriptions evoke the spirit of the dress or a moment perfect for the accessories – rather than a literal rundown of details.

    Didn’t really enjoy the names, sounded like a bad cheesy joke card or something. Oh well, congratulations anyways!:)

    they are absolutely disgusting names. i love modcloth, but really what were they thinking?! i wouldn’t buy these just because of the names. they sound like bad nock-nock jokes. two thumbs down 🙁 *tsk tsk*

    Not gonna lie, I saw way more clever names, not even thinking of my own, personally these are completely mediocre, but congrats to the winners and I hope Modcloth does this again.
