Name Your New Favorite Tee!

January 8, 2018


Erin Schrader

As some of you may or may not know, I am in the works of collaborating with Gibson Look to create a Living In Yellow clothing line that will be launching at Nordstrom.com on March 8th! Excited is an understatement. While there is so much more to share on this project [don’t worry, I’ll be doing so over the next couple of months], one of my main goals for this line is to get you, the reader, involved in it as much as possible! One fun way to do this is to let you name the basic tee that will be included in the line. Don’t be fooled – when I say basic, I really mean a dream. If you are a lover of soft, non-sheer, longer length perfect tee’s this one will absolutely be a most worn item in your wardrobe.

When naming all of the other pieces, I chose names of women in my life that I love and admire. For this particular tee, we thought it would be fun to choose a woman’s name that embodies one of the characteristcs of women that we admire! Below you will see our choices along with what it means! Whatever name wins will be what it’s called! Get your voting fingers ready, we’re ready for you! 

share this with your best girlfriends:

      Since 2017 was a year that women across the country stood up to harressment and sexual misconduct , I think it is fitting to call it Matilda women are strong

  2. Donna Mollin says:

    I thought u wanted us to come up with a name, so I was thinking g of tenacity. In any case I picked felicity for happiness.

  3. Leah Crouse says:

    Hey Erin and LIY team! I love that you are doing your own collaboration clothing line! So cool! I mean, if you need a tall girl to show off your perfect white tee or other pieces, I wouldn’t be opposed.????❤️

  4. Linda Serro says:

    When you post examples of tees, I always think of this word.

  5. Brenda says:

    Like other comments, this should be Felici-tee 🙂

  6. Maru says:

    I chose Eloise also because it makes me think of the always spunky girl in the children’s books.

  7. Stacy Allen says:

    Felicity. That is my youngest daughters name.

  8. Monica Scanlan says:

    Felicity would be a great name because of the play on words. Felicitee(shirt). Love LIY! How about some pieces for petites? Maybe a petite model too.

  9. Emily Morgan says:

    Re: choosing the name for yout t-shirt….My 3 year-old daughter is Ellie (Elise, full name). I was estatic to see in on your list. No brainer for this proud mama of a carefree, happy, beautiful little girl!

    LOVE the choices of names!!!! I may be biased, but I’m rooting for Felicity…that’s my daughter’s name, and she’ll be 1 in March. (Matilda was also a contender for a girl’s name too) Can’t wait to hear the results!

  14. Carla Judd says:

    I just th8nk Eloise is an amazing name for a shirt!

  15. Mindy Case says:

    I would choose Athena

Let’s just say, until we started working on this post, I had no idea that there were different pillows for different sleep positions. I figured it was a one-size fits all approach, maybe just a preference of firm or soft! Well, needless to say, I was way off. I also learned that over 70% of […]
