Name that Dress!

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!

    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”!

    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 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 “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.

    “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.

    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

    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”

    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.”

    Jolie Dress (Jolie means ‘pretty’ in French)

    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.)

    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.

    3.) The Prim and Proper Dress.
    4.) All Tied Up Dress.
    5.) High School Sweetheart Dress.

    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.

    -Plato’s Muse Dress

    -Sophisticated Socrates Dress

    -French Club President Frock

    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 ‘Fête des Remparts’ Frock”

    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!

    2. Penelope
    3. Romantic Lane Dress (Down a)

    Either the « Old Times » 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 don’t make those so often anymore, and since the dress is grey, too, the “Old Times” formula came to my mind very quickly…

    This dress reminds me of the book ‘The Memory Keeper’s Daughter’ by Kim Edwards. So some ideas are-

    -Hidden Secrets
    -White Lie
    -(The) Daughter
    -Memory Keeper
    -Memories of a Rainy Day
    -Picture Perfect
    -Picture Imperfect

    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.

    “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!

    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”

    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 Annabel Lee Dress – reminds me of the Romantic Movement, and the author of “Annabel Lee” was Edgar Allen Poe, a Romantic.


    The Étude Dress – étude 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.

    How ’bout the “Graysicle”? It looks like a perfect summer dress to eat popsicles in.

    “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

    “storm in thread dress” as the grey seems to scream, cute clouds building up into a storm that will take your breath away.

    “my nonna made it” dress, as itsgot that hint of vintage my nan made it
    “tea at nans” cos its demure and doesnt highlight the whole “nan would die if she saw me wearing this” theme

    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.

    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 (
