@chronicwhimsy:  I do think with some names if they’re named after a place that clearly the designer or whoever has never been there but then some names I can relate the name to the dress, oddly.

I thought I was weird for wrinkling my nose at, well, EVERY dress name you just wrote about! It must be an English degree/person-working-on-an-English-degree thing. Or you’re just my soulmate when you get a bit into the wine. Either way.

@chronicwhimsy:  YOU ARE FREAKING HILARIOUS. I have never associated those dress names with their literary counterpart but now you’re making me wonder what I’ve tried on and if it’s a good omen or not. Lol. Good job

Haha, and that’s why I never wanted to know the names of any dresses that I tried on. I was scared to death that I would find out the name of the dress and it would be someone that I’m not fond of, and then it would steer me away from the dress! I never got as in-depth with the name analysis as you, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. 🙂

I think we need to take a collection and send @chronicwhimsy:  a few cases of wine!!

Thanks for mentioning those. I regularly (mentally) raise an eyebrow at the names of some dresses. Seriously, were they not thinking??

But a dress by any other name would still look as fabulous! (bad attempt at a Shakespeare comparison) 


Mine happens to be named Aria, the dress name doesn’t matter but I happen to love the name of mine.

Hahaha oh I love this post! I studied literature and had already noticed the names of Maggie Sottero dresses too!

Also, I am so bad I would want to have a dress with a pretty name and I had this train of thought of ‘what if I name my daughter after my wedding dress, so it must be a pretty name’. Lol. Not that I would seriously consider it, but still..

I love the Carolina dress and incidentally love that name too. So it’s definitely crossed my mind. I love the Bronwyn dress too, but would never go for that name!
