Happy Thanksgiving

We are grateful for all our loyal customers, facebook followers, twitter followers and all the rest of our fans out there. We know that if it wasn't for your support Diviine Modestee would not be where it is today. Thank you for your loyalty, for your patronage and for your support. We love you!

Black Friday

Back in the day, when I worked at the local mall I swore to myself that I would never again set foot in a mall on Black Friday. And I haven't. Black Friday is the most nightmare-ish day ever invented, followed by Valentine's Day, in my opinion. I will never forget several years ago when my Mother-in-Law boasted that she stood in line at Fred Meyer for two hours in the freezing cold, finally elbowed her way in to the store, stood in a very long register line for another hour all for a discount on SOCKS! I can tell you now that there is no discount on socks...doesn't matter what store, what brand....that would make that worth it to me.

Now cyber-shopping...THAT is something I could do any time, any day. I don't even need a special day like Cyber Monday for it. But for those of you who want to cyber-shop this weekend Diviine Modestee has a good BlackFriday/Cyber Monday sale going on: Select dresses (including new arrivals!) are anywhere from 20-40% off, swimwear is 20% off AND we are also offering FREE shipping on dress orders of $100+.

No socks on sale. Sorry.

Customer Comment of the Day

Customer comment: "I love your camisoles! They are the perfect height in front, higher than any other cami I've tried."

On sale this week

I posted a while back about one of our new dresses, the Taylor which I LOVE, but I haven't yet announced that we also have 4 other new dresses in for Fall: Kelsey, MaKennzie (in two colors), Taylor and Brecken (also in two colors).

These dresses are 20% off in our store and also online at Diviine Modestee. These are great dresses, I really can't say enough about them. As the resident sizing model for Large, I am so impressed with all these designs. All four of them make me look a size smaller and who doesn't want that? Not ashamed to say that I do! Each one hits below the knee and has a modest neckline.

Use coupon code: diviinedealholiday to get the discount.

Pumpkin Pancakes

One of the things I love most about Fall is Pumpkins. I love Pumpkin pie, pumpkin smoothies from Jamba Juice...basically anything pumpkin. Here's a recipe that I thought I'd share for fellow pumpkin lovers...not that we are turning this into a recipe blog, cuz we're not, we are still Diviine Modestee selling modern modest fashion.

Bon Appetit!

Pumpkin Pancakes
2 eggs
1-1/4 Cups buttermilk
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
3 Tablespoons canned pumpkin
1/4 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1-1/4 Cups all-purpose flour
1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon allspice
Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spray a light even layer of oil cooking spray.
With an electric mixer combine eggs, buttermilk, butter, pumpkin, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and blend with mixer until smooth.
Pour the batter in 1/4 cup portions into the hot pan.
When the batter stops bubbling and edges begin to harden, flip the pancakes. They should be dark brown. This will take from 1 to 2 minutes.
Flip the pancakes and cook about the same amount of time, until dark brown.
Servings: 4

I think these would be yummy with Buttermilk syrup and I have a recipe for that if anyone wants it.

If you have a favorite pumpkin recipe that you'd like to share, please add it in your comments!
