The Style Gallery is a great new way for you to view, love, and share outfit photos. It’s meant to showcase all the expressive, creative, and inspirational personalities of our community!
You may remember that back in February, we held a “Name That Cardigan” competition. It was so much fun for us to read through the hundreds of fabulous submissions, but needless to say, it was a difficult job to narrow it down to our favorite. We knew our customers were stylish, but never guessed you were so pop-culture savvy and witty!
With fall approaching, we’ve been doing A LOT of shopping for new items. You may have seen that we already have some great new products for our Back to School line, but every day we get more. While this is a fun and exciting time at ModCloth, we’re so busy! There are boxes and boxes of new items and our product description writers are in creative overdrive–trying on new clothes, pacing the floor with furrowed brows, and typing feverishly–all in hopes of creating the perfect names. So, we need your help again. We’re enlisting you to name the dress pictured below. Leave your idea (or ideas!) as a comment on this blog post before Friday, August 22nd at midnight to be in the running. Feel free to post as often as you like and have fun!
The winner will be announced Monday, August 25th. In addition to the fame and the giddy excitement that accompanies naming your very own ModCloth dress, the winning writer will receive the dress in her size (sorry, this one is only available in S, M, L), in addition to an Orange You Glad Tote, Heart of a Peacock Necklace, Madame Bovary Ring, and Eye of the Tiger Sunglasses. Get in the school spirit with a writing assignment that’s actually fun; we promise you all an A+. So, put on your most stylish thinking cap and get naming!
Little Bow Peep Dress
The Hedda Gabler Dress
This dress is so cute! The material looks extra comfy and cuddly! The one thing that I think of when I hear “cute” and “cuddle” is a girls favorite child-hood doll. I could just picture her wearing the same thing…the bow around the neck just tops it off! I think that the perfect name for this dress is….”The Dolly Dress”!
the tabloid darling dress. For the girl who’s always camera-ready– no matter what she’s snapped doing!
This dress looks like something a demure French ye-ye girl in the ’60s would wear. So definitely The Francois Hardy frock.
I’ve got two!
The Little Edie
I could totally see her rocking this! Throw on a head wrap and big glasses, and you’re good to go!
The Louise Palease Dress – rock this frock to the local Farmer’s Market or to the soda shop for a sundae and your sure to be cute and sophisticated!
the holly golightly
It does look very french, I just came back from there and everyone was wearing grey shirts and grey dresses that were very flowy like this. I’d call it the La Robe de Francoise Hardy or L’Agent Secret or French Telecom Frock
Ok, so this is an odd one, but I think it would work: “The Gray Catbird” or “In the Catbird Seat”
My dictionary says this:
“A long-tailed American songbird of the mockingbird family, with mainly dark gray or black plumage and catlike calls”
As a phrase, “in the catbird seat” (meaning to be informal in a superior or advantageous position).
I think that this dress could be adequately named either of the above! Thanks!
I think it should be the ‘Rosemary’s Babydoll’ dress……I could so see a young Mia Farrow in it, with her cute pixie crop 🙂
I think this dress looks very victorian yet modern at the same time. I could definatley see this on an english literature student, books in hand and leather satchel elegantly strapped over the shoulder. However it would be equally as fitting on Nora Helmer. She would wear this with pretty victorian boots and a long fur coat for those bitterly cold norweigen winters! So I would call this dress ” A Doll’s House Dress” (following the Ibsen theme, which i think is totally fitting for this dress).
The Bow Line Dress
How about: Miss Priss; Teacher’s Pet Dress or Sweet Sassy Molassy.
Alright, here’s another one: “The Cloud-Seeder”
I have this mental image of a fabulously cool girl wearing this dress while she sprinkles crystals from her hands into the clouds to make it rain.
Oh, and by the way, cloud seeding is a real thing, in case you didn’t know! 🙂
Take a bow dress.
Get it? Take a bow, like bend over, but also it could be take a bow, like the big bow at the neck.
The Brasserie Dress
It makes me think of sitting at a sidewalk cafe in Paris with a Fitzgerald paperback and a strong cup of coffee.
I would name it: “The Heathers:
1) it’s heather gray
2) after the 80s teen flick, Heathers
The Sexy School Marm.
I don’t know why, but I would totally buy that dress especially with that name.
Paris Delight or Champs-ElysÃ©es Dress. It looks like a stroll in Paris.
The 30’s Madeleine Dress
🙂 In Madeleine Vionnet’s honor
I think that the straight cut of the dress and the high neck is like being back in the 30’s
In keeping with the French theme – “Debbie does Paris”!
I would definitely wear it there.
“Un Jour Dans La Ville”
How about the “Twilight Dress.” It’s between daylight and darkness, useful for daytime wear, but can be carried over into evening.
I think you should call it “beau on my heart” .
The “Gray Matter Dress.” This dress represents a women who has the ability to understand or deal with problems. (EX: She’s got the “gray matter” to figure out that equation.) In my opinion it’s the perfect name for this classy, stylish yet studious looking dress.
the Stormy-Lu dress
what about “mercy for jersey bow-neck”
“Midnight at Thornfield Manor”. Why? To me, it has the look of Victorian nightwear, both in the colour and the demure bow at the neck. And Jane Eyre is, of course, a governess, which is rather apropos to the Back to School line.
‘Pucker Up, Buttercup’
The Jane Austin Mini
Betty Gray-ble Dress
Hmm…I think the “Teacher’s Pet”
It’s just smart and charming that way.
“Mme. ‘Bow’vary” for Flaubert’s pleasure-seeking Emma Bovary 🙂
Simply, the dress and the name are both super cute… it fits! 🙂
Magnify the stripes dress
because of it’s tiny stripes fabric
Or how about: “The Grey Gatsby”.
The Dolittle Dress because it’s something Eliza (my fair lady) would wear after she’s all classy and proper, or it’s a dress you could look fabulous in by doing little….
I need to alter my comment. Maybe I would call it the “Grays MatterS” Dress. I like the S on the end. 🙂
Hmmm… Rive Gauche Dress
Because I’m French, I live in St Germain des PrÃ©s and I would definitely wear it there !!!
Anyway, If I don’t win, I’ll buy it 🙂
here are my suggestions,
1. the breakfast club (as this would be the updated version of the dress Ally Sheedy’s character would wear after her makeover)
2. (ode to Madonna’s 80s songs) Cherish; Dress You Up
3. Sweet Valley (for it’s sweetness and for the book series)
ugh “Gray MatterS” haha
“The Audrey Dress”. Reminds me of something Audrey Hepburn would wear.
Comfy Cutey Dress
Sorry one more. “Gray Goose” dress. 🙂
a few more names:
1. Say Anything (Lloyd Dobbler would approve of this dress on his girl)
2. Grey Skies
with the romantic ruffles and collar:
1. sense and sensibility
2. Miss Darcy
3. Miss Austen
The Hidden Stripes Dress
The Bolshevik Revolution Dress. :o)
It’s the grayness of it all.
or to go along with the Victorian inspiration:
“Gibson Girl Frock” – (After the early 1900’s popular image of the “New Woman” when women took jobs traditionally held by men)
“La Belle Ã‰poque” – (or Beautiful Age) refers to the time period of 1890-1914 and describes the beauty of the clothing worn in this time period. (the collar reminds me of some of the collars back then)
“Reform School Dress”
I think it should be named “Cul de sac Cutie” because it preppy, yet sassy.
some names i came up with:
bursting bust dress
blowing bow dress
ruffle puffle dress
hand in my pocket dress
2 hands in my pocket dress
one night in paris dress
1.) The “Mia Farrow” dress- because that’s who I immediately thought of.
2.) The “Louise Brooks” dress
3.) The “Grey/Gray” dress
it should be called ‘Audra”
the last one is spelled wrong: it had to be the:
Misty Morning Sleeves Halter Dress
It reminds me of a young Shirley MacLaine would wear in something like “Irma La Douce” so I’m going with
It also looks a bit Victorian, and I’m a tea drinker, so how about “The Lady Grey”
The movement in the texture is a hidden surprise, as is the paradox of the high bows around the neck with the sleeveless/shortness that definitely says sexy but with a twist of controll. This girl in this dress knows how to make itself know, only to recede like the mistery she is. I’m feeling Eastern promises-ish, therefore:
1) Trojka’s Telescope
2) Bevare of Sonya
3) The Moscow Minnie
4) Katya’s party
comfy grey sweats revisited
i say, Sally’s Sunrise.
The “Jeanne Carmen” dress. Because it looks like something she would wear… something fierce!
La Petite Grise (the little gray in French)
GrisonnÃ© (gone gray in French)
Twilight Delight (because of the color and it’s a delightful dress, also would look good in the evening)
The Artist (becasue I think it looks artsy)
We shall call it: Legalese
(due to the gray pinstriped fabric and soft fit)
The “Who’s That Girl” Dress
The sheek geek.
All “A-bowed” mini
The Bow-dacious mini
Drapes not Squares dress (after the Drapes in Crybaby)
-The Sweetheart Dress or Ma ChÃ©rie (french for my sweetheart)
-Feminine in Frills
-The Libby Dress
The “Zooey” dress. After Zooey Deschanel 🙂 This is very her!!
Tie the knot
Rosemary’s Baby dress
Mia Pixie dress
‘Le Madeleine’ dress
The Danica Dress
I think this dress should be called the Touch of Grey dress.
DuBois, Darcy Darling, Mother Superior, or Cosette!
Cloudy with a Silver Lining
It’s in your back to school line, and when I think of back to school, I think of those composition books, and the feeling of purchasing new ones. This dress also seems very composed, lady like, and something that can be dressed up or down!
I think it should be called The KÃ©kÃ©land Dress, after the 2001 Brigitte Fontaine album!
The Victorian Toga
It should be called: Retrograde. Get it? Retro…Grade? Heh. I thought it was cool 🙂
This is definitely a dress for a girl poet… to be worn with a black baker-boy cap and a black skinny scarf!
The One-Night Stanza Dress
The Writer’s Block Dress
The Blotting-Paper Dress
The Literary Review Dress
The Endpaper Dress
The Feminine Mystique dress
..or La Femme Mystique dress
Elle Va LÃ©gÃ¨rement Dress
I also like… “The Susie Q” and ” The Jersey girl”.
The Shirley Sherlock Dress
“The Billy Holiday dress”
or, in the same vane…
The “At Last” dress
(At last my dress has come along…)
Grey’s Kelly Dress. Classy and sophisticate like Grace – don’t forget to add the Kelly bag!
(this reminds me of a woman my dad dated in the 60’s… her name was Effie)
-Pocket Full of Posey
Greyzie….a variation on “Thank you” in Italian….just a thought!
“The Intellectual Sweetheart”
i think the dress has something smart and realy sweet about it
like a novel by Victor Hugo 🙂
I have more…
The Little Schoolgirl (because it’s part of the back to school line and is so cute)
Grey Street (song by the Dave Matthews Band)
Touch of Grey (song by the Grateful Dead)
Shady Place or Shady Character (because gray is a shady color)
Gandalf the Grey Dress (from LOTR, kind of geeky, but whatever)
Sheba the Seductive Russian Spy Dress
The “Not-So-Quiet-In-The-Library” Librarian Dress.
The Bad Education Dress. Inspired by the ‘back to school’ line, naughty naughty!
This dress is beautiful.
I would call it the “Sweet Baby Jane”
The Modest Mademoiselle
The “Sedgwick” or the “Muse” dress
the franc frock
Old Hollywood Night Out Dress
my submission for the contest is;
Elizabethan Go-Go Dress (with pockets)
Gray Grey Go-Go Dress Dress
Dorian Gray “Fountain of Youth” Dress
Row, Row, Row, Your Bow Dress
-The Poet’s Dress
-The Love Poem Dress
-Pretty n’ Poetic Dress
Greyscale Runway dress
a fitting name for the dress…
The Left Bank
Gabrielle (after Audrey Hepburn in Paris when it Sizzles)
Pas de Deux
I thought of old time actress Clara Bow so I think it should be named in her honor. I could see her wearing this in the 20’s and even if she lived now a days she would rock this dress.
So I’ll call it “The Clara Bow”
School Uniform Getaway Dress
1. teacher’s pet dress
2. slap a bow on it mini
3. collegiate mini dress
4. smarty pants mini dress
5. beauty & brains mini dress
Beaux-Arts; as in ‘bow’ and the architectural style
The Stella By Starlight dress after the jazz standard and brillantly sung by Ella Fitzgerald.
“That great symphonic theme,
That’s Stella by starlight,
And not a dream,
My heart and I agree,
She’s everything on this earth to me.”
Victorian Mod Elizabeth dress or Modern Elizabeth sassy dress
I think it should be:
The Belle du Jour (not only does it mean ‘Beauty of the Day’ in French, the film itself is filled with some of the best French fashion)
Jolie Dress (Jolie means ‘pretty’ in French)
Sweet & Simple
*Zoey Bow Tie Frock
*Chloe Impromptu Dress
*Nonchalant Bow Tie Dress
*60’s Pleasantry Dress
or the “dorian gray” dress
– Pleated Pinafore Dress
– Dusk in Derby Dress
– A Stroll Down 42nd Street Dress
– Nightfall in Nottingham Dress
– Rainy Day Reminiscent Dress
– Twilight Twirling Gown
– Bow Dreams Dress
– Cloudy Skies Dress
here’s my ideas!
The New Girl
Pockets Full of Intrigue
Hold My Books
hope this helps!
I’d call it Agnes.
The Labyrinthian Pomp
The Mass Romantic
The Dominique Francon
The Age of Consent
The Shady Lane
The Buddy Holly
The Mixtape Heartache
The Sunken Ships
The Factory Girl
The Wendy Peffercorn
The Charlie Nicholson
The Summertime Blues
The Blueberry Hill
The Cheated Hearts
The Hotel Yorba
The Chick Habit
The Janie Jones
The Holland 1945
The Girl Talk Dress
how about “Bonjour Autumn” or “Bonjour Fall” as you say in the states!
“Every Silver Lining’s Got a Touch of Grey” dress
The French Twist dress…
The Charlotte Dress…
“Fit to be Tied”
I can’t stand that it has pockets AND a bow. Too darling for words. How about Darlington Darling? I know someone here must have listened to Moxy Fruvous in the 90s.
Bo Peep Dressdown dress- The light and modern attire that Little Miss Bo Peep would sport on a day off!
The Grey Rose
This is such a cute dress!
Meet The Parents
The Forget-Me-Knot Dress!
I think a suitable name for the new grey dress would be a sassy PMS dress. Cause the grey is like the crappy PMS ‘ing but the little details like the bow are super cute!
The Greyt Gatsby
The Zelda Fitzgerald
Save Me The Waltz
Mon peu robe grise
The “Line in the Seine” Dress
The stripes at first reminded me of pencil lines, and the French styling made me think of The Seine. Combining these in my head made me think of the expression “draw a line in the sand.” It’s a cute, flirty dress but the high neckline and unexpected color and fabric evoke a girl who would play hard-to-get (drawing a line in the sand against any guy who approaches her.)
Grey Skies are Gonna Clear up…put on this dress!
Grey Poupon 😉
This dress look very Parisian and artisitic to me, so I came up with these:
– The Mon Amour Dress
– The Masterpiece Dress
– Where’s My Beret Dress
– The A+ in Art Class Dress
“the Grey Lady”.
Little Daisy dress
“Walking my pug” dress
“Je ne sais pop” dress
The Hot 4 Teacher
The Little Bow-and-Ruffles Peep Dress.
I think this dress is very retro but yet modern. I can see Mrs. Darcey in it if she lived in these times. I think it should be called “Mrs. Darcey” or “Jane Austen dress” It just remindes me so much of Elizabeth Bennet (a.k.a. Mrs.Darcey)so much!!!!!
Grey skies are going to clear up Mini
Victorian School Girl

I hope no one has chosen this name thus far…

1) The Edie Sedgwick
2) Why not just “That Dress”? I can totally see Marlo Thomas in it!

the “tie one on” frock.
bow diddly : )
“The Cats and Dogs Dress” (ie raining cats and dogs)
“Pretty City Dress” (the gray is very city, the bow is very pretty)
“E or A Dress” (whichever way you spell “gray” is ok)
“Wilde about Dorian Gray Dress”
“The Perfect Storm Dress”
The After-Hours Librarian!
I work in a library..and this would be perfect for work with a little sweater.
Once the sweater is off….its party-time!!
Hum, I like playing with words, so I would say “Greycie Lou”, then you got “Grisetta”, “l’enfant sage”, “la petite Ã©lÃ¨ve modÃ¨le”…
And yes, sorry for all that french words 🙂

How about “The Claire” or “The Andie” or drop the “The” and just make it the actual name.
I can see Molly Ringwald in this dress in one of her teen 80’s movies. The bow, the flowiness of it, slouchy pockets…I’m more partial to Andie…The dress looks more like an Andie than a Claire.
*Greyly Girl Dress

how about …

A few ideas following the back-to-school theme:
-The College Co-ed dress
because the dress has a bit of a mod, sixties look to it, hearkening back to the days when female students were still referred to as “coeds:
-The Crush-on-the-Professor dress or,
-The Front-Row Flirt dress
Both of those names because it’s a cute, flirty, yet sophisticated dress of the type you would put on for class with that attractive professor whose eye you’re trying to catch without coming across as too shameless.

“The dress of the Understatement” like the Age of the Understatement by The Last Shadow Puppets and I’d totally go to one of their gigs in this dress.
IMHO, the dress has aspects of traditional Grecian clothing and French fashion, so:
-Grecian Scholar Dress
-Plato’s Muse Dress
-Sophisticated Socrates Dress
-French Club President Frock
-Exchange Student Tunic Dress

Dinan is this old town built on the hillside of the Rance River in the north of France. Every second year, there is a two day festival where a majority of the locals dress in medieval clothing and the entire town is decorated. My grandmother grew up in Dinan and in one picture from her youth, she is wearing something like this.
So, I’d call it “The ‘Dame du Dinan’ Dress” or “The ‘FÃªte des Remparts’ Frock”
“The September Afternoon Dress”

Since it’s a part of the back to school line and is a little prim and proper but with style I would call it
“Teachers Pet” dress

“happy go cutie”
“the (grey) melangelicious”
“you and me – we – belong with fancy shoes, an umbrella and that special someone by our side”
The Head of the class dress

Look at me I’m prettier than you dress
Grey is my color dress
Who says you need to wear color to look pretty dress
Teacher’s pet dress
What a fabulous present dress ( already tied with a bow)
This dress whispers of a bygone era of romance, fun, whimsy, and an alluded provocativeness. It reminds me of the 1960’s – English country side – French Cafe. When I look at it, I actually am reminded of the Enid Blyton book “Claudine at St.Claires”, I think it should be named just that!
1. Claudine at St. Claires
3. Romantic Lane Dress (Down a)
4. Picnic in the Countryside
5. Light, airy, romantic, whimsy!
6. Spin me dizzy!
Either the Â« Old Times Â» Candy dress, or the Candy Wrapping dress.
An explanation: the first suggestion came to my mind because the bow around the neck made the dress look like one of these old candy wrappings I loved when I was a little girl, with the candy all wrapped-up in the middle and the glossy paper sprouting out from the sides. They donâ€™t make those so often anymore, and since the dress is grey, too, the â€œOld Timesâ€ formula came to my mind very quicklyâ€¦
the “this dress is so cute we had to write a blog about it” dress
This dress just reminded me of Angela from The Office right away. So I’d say
“The Angela Martin Dress”
“My Dearest Dwight Dress”
“Romance in Accounting” (which also works because it’s serious and flirty)
“Office Romance Dress”

La Cage aux Bow.
A little bit of a play on words. Taken from the french play La Cage aux Folles (La-caj-a-foe) meaning “The Birdcage”…
In this case, it would mean “The Bow-cage!”
1. The Susie Q.
2. Miss Goodie Two Shoes
3. Simple Sally
4. Simple Susie
“The Summer Abroad” Dress
Back to gruel
All Mimsy or just Mimsy
from the poem by Lewis Carroll
This dress is chic and rather versatile. Great design. I could see myself saying these names when talking about it to my friends:
“Address This Dress”
“Grey Poet Society”
“Tried and True”
“Giddy in Grey”
“Late For Class”
“Mary Tyler Moore” (or “The Mary” for short)
The Study Date Dress.
School’s starting and everyone needs a cute, not-too-fancy dress to wear on a study date!
“Holly GoLightly singing in the rain”
‘The Mini-Belle Dress’ or ‘Victoria’s Secret’
I don’t know, I keep thinking of girl names!
But the one I like the most is:
– Maxine or The Maxine
And when I look at it I just think “oohh what a cute frock!”
– The Bow Frock
Or we could mix the two ideas and call it:
– The Maxine Frock!
Or really it could be named after me, Amelia. I love this dress, it’s super cute :]
I’m trying to think of short but catchy phrases that embodies the essence of the dress
dolly goes Out to Lunch dress
The “Dot Your I’s, Cross Your T’s, and Tie Your Bows” Dress

The Carla Bruni Dress
‘Teacher’s Pretty Pet’
“Heather Confectionary” dress
The Study Abroad Dress

You got nothing to wear for a date? Then just whip this out and, while looking fabulous, go on your merry way to have a fabulous date.

The Saucy Librarian Dress
I like “Grey skies are gonna clear up!”
I have two:

The Dorm Room Dolly Dress
The Freshman Pristine Dress (like freshman 15)
The Beauty School Dropout Dress
“Two Poche for You” – a salute to the fabulous two pockets (“Poche” is French for pocket, pronounced Posh) on the dress.
This dress reminds me of the book ‘The Memory Keeper’s Daughter’ by Kim Edwards. So some ideas are-
-Memories of a Rainy Day
The “Je Ne Sais Quoi” dress. Brush up on your French for Back to School! Is it the sweet, oversized bow at the collar, the classy gray hue or the coquettish hemline that makes this a closet essential? Either way, it’ll give your style that “certain something” that’s hard to pin down.
Dressed for my Dreams.
Dancing in the London Fog.
quality over quantity but this dress is so adorable that it makes my brain whirr
“be wise, revise” Dress! perfect to fit in with the back to school theme!

“Georgie is back”
“Back to the present”
“Bow wow me”
1. la fille en gris (the girl in grey)
2. la petite coquette (the little flirt)
“Grey Gardens” after the broadway musical. Plus it looks like a dress you could wear to a garden party.
Autumn in Seattle Dress
I’d call it Harriet. I’m one of those strange people who see a dress and a name just pops into my head. It would look great belted (bright color of course for pop) over denim leggings and a pair of slouchy boots.
The Victorian Natural
Little Girl Lost
Grey Skies over Paris
“Fresca como la maÃ±ana” (“As fresh as the morning”)
“Show me yours”

1. “The Grey gatsby”
2. “Dancing on Greystreet”
“RentrÃ©e des classes” dress
for (first day) back to school, in french
“Read Between The Lines Dress”
Because it looks like a fun dress to wear while piling lots and lots of books into your arms (and maybe a paperback or two in the pockets!)
“So Far So Lovely Dress”
Because it sure is a cute one, but who knows what kind of mischief can happen later in the day!
“The Missed Connection Dress”
“The Early Bird Dress”
It looks like a really comfortable, easy dress that could go with anything or stand alone, so you wouldn’t have to spend lots of time in the morning fussing over accessories and zippers and such.
“The Fearless Dear Dress”
Super for going on an adventure!
Or maybe just “Dorwina”

i call this one…….
bows and bonnets…
wagon wheels grey
1- The “Trop bow pour toi” dress
2- The Beau-Bow dress
Again wordplays on bow-beau. But all the credit is due to sweetaimee (August 18th, 2008 at 1:04 pm), so i’m not too proud.
Bow-Beau is a reference to a French trend “Bo-bo”, which mean Bourgeois-BohÃ¨me
Makes me think :
3- The Bowhemia dress
And what about :
“Go Bow ! dress”
Somehow, this dress echoes Italy much more than France to me. Metropolitan Italy, that is. Therefore some quintessential Italian hipster catch phrases would make the perfect dress name:
Or, to go with the school-vibe:
THE BOBBIE SMOCK DRESS IS A SURE WINNER…..I’D LIKE A LARGE BTW.
“Oui! I Study at the Sorbonne”,
“Splendid at the Sorbonne”
Girls Not Grey
“Lazy Line Painter Jane”
“The Simple Lady Smock”
” The Nonchalantly Chaste”
or ” The Casual Mormon” (that may be slightly offensive, please don’t take it that way!”
The “Twiggy” dress…. definately….
Totally looks like something she would have worn…. I love it
Nights in Montmartre
The sound of.. the bell dress. (Looks a little sound of music. So at lunch time at school you are running around on the oval in it rejoicing in the sunshine but you get torn out of your imagination by the sound of the bell)
absolutely love this dress! here are some of my suggestions!
1. Grey Cascade
2. Decorously Grey
3. Grey-ciously yours
‘Shades of Gray’ – Taken from the hit Monkees Song
‘All Tied Up!’
‘Too Perfect to Name’ – hee, hee
Italian or French ? French or Italian ? I personally find it hard to tell…
But just in case morgan’s right and it does looks “Italianer” then i suggest instead of my previous “The “Trop bow pour toi” dress”, a variation
The “Tro-bow bello” dress
(for “Troppo bello” – too beautiful)
Not to support the competition, but “The Little Edie” is a fabulous name!
As for me, I submit:
the Done Away (vacay reference and Faye play-on-words, all in one)
“the only beau ill ever love”
beau as in boy 😉 and bow.
How about the “Susie Q.”???
September 8 1972
Shea Dale High…….Riot breaks out over THE Bobbi Smock Dress!!!
12 reported injured. Dress maker vows to make more!!
Oh my god, it’s the cutest dress ever!! cried Lacey Potter, Senior at Shea Dale.
If I don’t get my hands on one I’ll just die, screams Nancy Lovely also a Senior.
Marlena Monroe a Freshman claims the subtle grey brings out the green in her eyes.
30 students have been suspended only increasing the demand of THE BOBBI SMOCK DRESS.
“too cool for school” dress
1. Rushmore Scholarly Smock Dress
2. Tie Me Up In Oxford Dress
Since the theme is ‘Back to School’, I thought it could be called the “Talk of the Halls Dress”.
Also, the “Bell-Bow Dress”. the dress has sot of a bell shape, a slight bell shape, and there’s a bow on the collar.
The Lady of Glamis Dress.
Glamis castle is a castle in Scotland, rumoured to be haunted by the Grey Lady.

2. The Tic Tac Toe Dress

3. Bow Wow
4. First Day of School Sweetie

4. Finishing School Cool Dress
5. French Quench Dress

(In english.. the adorable autumn dress)
I think l’automne adorable sounds lovely together!!
Saucy Smokey Sunshine Dress
“The Sophomore Sophisticate”,
“Polished Star Pupil”,

Decadent and Grise
Grey Dream Believer
All Tangled Up in Grey
The Knotty Grey Mini
that dress is so cute and chic 🙂
“The cloud busting dress”
(Because of the beautiful shade of grey, and also because it reminds me of the Kate Bush song. I could just imagine Kate bush back in the day, wearing something just as lovely!)
The high neck makes me think of 19th century, but the bow suggests someone a little unusual, a little quirky, someone not afraid to be different. Surely such a girl could only be the daughter of a poet, and spent her days dipping her toes in streams and writing poems about butterflies with a peacock feather quill.
Thus; “The Poet’s Daughter Dress”
Moody Tuesday Dress
The Old Movie Garden Party dress
A.V. Club Dress
= the “grey gardens” dress
= the “pintuck perfection” dress
“Chatty Cathy Dress”
“School Bell Dress”

I think it should be called,
The Romance of Jane Austen.
The Heather Swing
The Zooey Dress
The Parker Posey
The First Date
The You wish you’d got back to school dress
The Grey Gaurdian.
Its very styleized and classy. Kinda like a pulp superhero.
Its a beautiful dress, the shade of grey that it is, is just wonderful.
The bow just works with the whole dress, it dosnt stick out like a sore thumb like some dresses.
I am thinking “Vicky D” dress for Victorian Doll. Or
“The day after Thanksgiving Dress” because it is flowy and comfy. And people usually over it.
1) Pemberleyesque Dress
2) Le Petit DÃ©jeuner Dress
3) French Lit 101 Dress
4) The Demigoddess Dress
5) The Degas Dress
6) Reine des Abeilles Dress / Queen Bee Dress
tea after twelve.
It think Coquettish Kiki would be a fabulous name. Kiki’s a modest chica with rosey cheeks, bouncy hair, and a retro booty.
the Apple For Teacher dress
Just think about it.
What’s more retro than bringing a teacher an apple? It’s proper and polite, but potentially with a cheeky edge. Naming a dress after that would add a bit of flirtation to the mix.
Part of the Back to School line, huh? Well…it reminds me of a smock. Soooo…
The Art Class Dress!
1. chester french dress
2. study group frock
3. the grey hasbat

The Sienna Dress
After Sienna Miller, looks like her style!
Two good names:
1. the Denmark Street Dress
I have to admit I got the name off of the Kinks song “Denmark Street” (one of the MOD bands!). Denmark street is the British Tin Pan Alley and “is shaking from the tappin’ of toes.” This should be a dress that can carry the beat with you at all times( maybe in the pockets 🙂 ), not to mention “the Denmark Street Dress” has a nice ring to it.
2. The Do-you-ride-Vespa-or-Lambretta Dress
3. If #2 breaks trademark stuff: The My-other-car-is-a-moped Dress
Like everyone says, this dress looks European and what’s more European than mopeds/motor scooters? Don’t you just see yourself riding a vespa down the champs-elyssees in this dress?! well I do!
The Ingrid Dress
The Fall Sweetie Dress.
Oh whatever, no matter what it is named I am definitely getting one.
The Annabel Lee Dress – reminds me of the Romantic Movement, and the author of “Annabel Lee” was Edgar Allen Poe, a Romantic.
The Ã‰tude Dress – Ã©tude is French for study/lesson. Musical pieces are named these to perfect the skills of the musician. What better name for a dress? The dress “perfects” the wearer and is great for school 🙂
I think it could be called “Raindrop”.
It has an almost gloomy cloud coloring, and the shape of the dress can lend itself to the shape of a rain drop.
charm school babydoll
How ’bout the “Graysicle”? It looks like a perfect summer dress to eat popsicles in.
“Unplain Jane Dress”
Nothing typical. Very Jane.
The Karen O So Soft Dress…
The Karen O So Cute….or something to that effect…i could see her in it with boots and a belt at the waist or something.
“miranda grey” the character from the collector by john fowles, because she seems so demure, but really shes feisty, hghlighting the “dont judge a book by its cover” theme
the “go-lightly” as its made of light material.
“subtle prance” something you can be girly in whilst still kepping your composure
“pepper spree” the grey colour, lol

“tea at nans” cos its demure and doesnt highlight the whole “nan would die if she saw me wearing this” theme
“The First Bell”
“Kiss and Tell”
I think I would name it
the “French Class” dress
because it looks very French Chic and It’s a back to school dress. It is also very classy. Lots of class, with the bows and the pockets.
Tres Magnifique Dress.
Ok-I have a few
1: *GREY LADY* which has lots of references in Journalism 1 being The NY TIMES,sounds fancy!
3: *CMYK 50% artists know this one 🙂
4: *Out of the Fog*
5: *Smoke, Dust and Ash
hope these were not done already-I don’t want to read 300 something others
Ok I just posted but I can’t stop-here’s 2 more:
*The Low Fog high-Hem dress*
The Edie Frock (i also immediately thought of edie from the ‘grey gardens’ when i saw this dress, so i’ll add another ‘edie’ entry in, b/c that’s such a fitting name)
Charcoal Practice Frock (artsy-looking + colors are charcoly-looking)
Europamor Dress (we all agree that the dress seems inspired by either a country or a point in time in european history; italy, france, victorian era)
The Eurostar (it looks influenced by a victorian-era train-traveling dress from 1800’s especially with the railroad conductor stripes + its’ also tres european influenced = name of a european train. and really, who isn’t a star?)
The Conductor Dress
The Locomotive Voyager
Eras Bygone Dress
The Blithe Spirit Dress (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blithe_Spirit_%28play%29)

La Belle Epoque
The Lady Jane
The Gibson Girl
The Queen Alexandra
I was mostly struck by the high, Edwardian-style collar. “La Belle Epoque” is a name used for the 1890’s-1900’s. And, you know, everything sounds better in French. 🙂
“The Lady Jane” comes from Lady Jane Grey. Because the dress is gray. I know, I know, don’t laugh.
“The Gibson Girl” is self-explanitory.
“The Queen Alexandra” – Alexandra was the queen of Great Britain at the time. She was a fashion icon to high-class women everywhere. Here’s a little paragraph about her from Wikipedia: “[Alexandra] hid a small scar on her neck, which was likely the result of a childhood operation, by wearing choker necklaces and high necklines, setting fashions which were adopted for fifty years. Alexandra’s effect on fashion was so profound that society ladies even copied her limping gait, after her serious illness in 1867 left her with a stiff leg. She used predominantly the London fashion houses; her favourite being Redfern’s, but occasionally shopped at Doucet and Fromont of Paris.”
The Lady Jane Grey Dress
Lady Jane had a reputation as one of the most learned women of her day, and the historical writer Alison Weir describes her as one of “the finest female minds of the century”. (from Wiki)
I think this dress is beautiful. Sexy but cute and understated.
“CHERRY BOMB” is the name that comes to my mind !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Static Bolt, Static Shock?
Lost In Translation?
the neck choker dress!
Okay two more…
1. The First Date Dress
2. Madeline Dress (You know after that cute french storybook character)
Urban City Romance
ok, i have another one….”The Audacious Au Pair”…it reminds me of the sexy forthright nanny from oversees.
“THE PRIMROSE PREP PINNY”
Look very preppy and demure in this understated but classy dress. Add a skivvy or sheer long sleeve T underneath to give it the school pinnafore look – divine and hope it is mine!
Much peace and happiness to you all!

wish me luck!
“The Georgette Magritte”
“Golconda” (‘a synonym for ‘mine of wealth’)
I would call it the notre dame, which is french for ‘our lady’ referring to virgin mary. Im not religious but think it suits. The dress is sort of conservative and innocent but still chic and has a french style.
since it jersy but still very chic
Sporty Chic Dress or Sport Spice Dress

So you want sunshine on a cloudy day? What better way then to step out in the streets, mall, or a friends house in this cute grey frock. Perfect for any day, cloudy or sunny!
I’ve spent the whole night thinking about THE name and I have four of them now^^
” d i e A n b Ã¤ n d l e r i n ” (refers to the german expression “anbÃ¤ndeln” (=to flirt) which originates from “band” (=band))
” t e a c h e r ‘ s m o r n i n g s n a c k ” (thats obvious(O:)
” l a p o c h e t t e s u r p r i s e ” or “die SchultÃ¼te” (large cornet filled with sweets and little presents given to children on their first day at school –> PLEASE google the term to see the similarity)
the ” f r e n c h c a d e a u x ” dress (putting this dress on is to become a life size present)

The Graphic 6B (could be a pencil OR a class at school)
The little pochette dress
The Swan Lake dress
When I first saw the dress, I though…. Miss. Potter,,,,,Then I though it looked like a very confident girl. A very smart girl. I thought of someone close to me, and this is her second year as a school teacher, she teaches a special reading class for small children with learning dissabilities…So I think the dress should be named after her.. “The Confident Chrissy”
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
I’d call this the “Portrait d’une femme” dress meaning portrait of a lady in French. Not only is it from the awesome song by Metric called “Poster of a girl” sung by indie goddess Emily Haines, it just encompasses the whole feel of this dress. It’s beautiful.
Madame Bovary dress
The parasol dress; The petite parasol dress

je suis adorable dress
The high collar, the bow, POCKETS! … this dress is so ME, I would name it: The Gigi Dress!
The Doris Daydress
The Raunchy Headmistress Frock
In honor of the Schooling theme; the bow at the side is inexplicably similair to a Headmistress’s chic chiffon scarf, and it’s just a tad too short not to be a bit raunchy 😉
I’m wearing mine with the peacock feather tights 🙂
