As ModCloth writers, we get to play around with super snappy fashion words in order to describe our products. Here are our ten favorites:
I would like to add ball fringe. I don’t remember if I’ve seen in on any of your products, but it always makes me smile.
Smocking, Peep Toe, and Decollete are my favorites! Can you tell I’m a pin-up girl in my closet? The hourglass shape is my friend!
Houndstooth is a good one. Sounds like it has nothing to do with fasion, but it is one of my favorite patterns.
whoops… fashion. not “fasion”
The words “Peep Toe” drive me effin’ crazy for some reason, like I want to punch a wall. Seersucker sounds dirty. Frog Toggle is funny sounding when I say it outloud. But seriously, when I see…..Peep Toe, oh god, I want to kill something.
Wait, isn’t spring almost over? I want a fabric to be named WAZAM! Or something like that, cause I like spazzy words.
@Emily – My frame is Twiggy-esque. Haha, no way am I near an hourglass, I’m so androgenious
I think smocking makes things look kind of WalMart-ish (very cheap). If I’m paying a lot of money for something I want good quality and I want it to look like I paid good money for it!
Frog toggle should be Froggle! 😉
Lauren–speaking of Walmart being cheap–I saw a bumper sticker recently that said “Mall Wart: The place for cheap plastic crap!” I enjoyed that bumper sticker very much!
I find it quite funny that you view “anorak” as a “snappy term”! To British folk, and anorak is a slang term for someone with a deeply uncool obsession. Like train spotting, or star gazing. Brilliant!
@Grace – Or like me, my obsession with suicide or murder stories…although it’s more of a morbid obsession.
an Anorak, is the german word for a raincoat, if I remember?
