28 Wishes: Name It and Win Holiday Contest

Up north, in blustery Pittsburgh, the ModCloth workshop is preparing for the holiday season. The writer’s nook is abuzz with the sounds of stress: the click clack of hurried typing, the whish of garments  hastily tried on and examined, and the mumbles of song lyrics and Hollywood starlets’ surnames: all this in an effort to name the many new items before the approaching holiday. We need your help to get these 28 items the perfect names, so they can wait for their stylish new owners nestled in a stocking or wrapped up in a shiny box.

Starting tomorrow, every day at 10:30 a.m. we will post a new item right here on the ModLife Blog that desperately needs a name. Write your submissions in the comments field of that post by midnight for your chance to win that item. If you miss the deadline, don’t fret. You get another chance the next day with a whole new item. In fact, you get 28 chances total to win yourself (or someone on your list) a stylish little something for the holiday.

The winners will be announced at the end of each week in our newsletter, and the last day of the contest is December 17th. If you’re not already receiving our newsletter, simply sign up on our homepage (The field to enter your email is on the left side of the screen)!

Good luck and may all your style wishes be granted!

    This is wicked exciting! Is it possible to win more than one contest? Or would that not be considered fair?

    It seems like each contest would be considered completely separate from the last so you would be able to win multiple, but I’m not sure.

    Either way, still sounds fun!

    Ugh, I put in a submission for the silk dress already-and it just came to me what it reminded me of. It’s too late-but oh well.

    It reminds me so much of the style of dress that Lisel wears in The Sound of Music;
