|MaKennzie in Black/White|
One of our customers had this to say about her MaKennzie Dress:
..."this is the PERFECT dress for a dance, or special occasion. Everytime I wear it I get so many compliments! I love the fit, I love the tule and I love the design. I am a LG size but I honestly look a size smaller in this dress. I don't know if it is the pattern, but somehow this dress made me feel incredible."

Customer Review: "This dress is amazing! I am a medium size with not much of a waist, more straight and not much curve. This dress was very flattering and made me look like I had a waist. I also LOVE the length. The fabric looks just as it shows, kind of shiny. It's beautiful!" ~Amy

"Diviine Modestee’s entry into the swim category is through their own swimwear department. The main feature of this site is its “Design Your Perfect Suit” option that allows you to pick a top, bottom and skirt and shows the set together virtually so you can mix and match your options.
Styles for tops are Halter, Ruched and Tankini.
What I like about these suits is the fact that it naturally pairs itself with a skirt, though halter tops usually are a bit revealing in my opinion. I’ve quickly gone through them, however, and most of them are generally modest."
Thank you Adam for the write-up and the great review!

|Brecken in Stone|
Now look at this dress (sounds like an Old Spice commercial!): Khaki Poplin Shirt Dress (go ahead...click the link!) available through Bluefly, an online discount retailer. Wow! Such a difference! You can immediately see that this dress...offered for $135 by the way...offers so much less than the Brecken for much more. There is no added tailoring on the sleeves or waist, it's made of cotton/poplin, a lower quality fabric than the Brecken and while it's a cute dress with the little belt and colors offered, it's very short and basically just looks like a shirt. There really is no comparison to the style, quality and cost of the Brecken. If you want the biggest bang for your buck you want the Brecken.
Plus...you need the Brecken in order to wear those totally awesome shoes the model is wearing. I mean...look at the SHOES! They're HOT!

Look what a sweetie-doll Brighton is. I love when babies sleep with their little arms all curled up around their face. So sweet...
Congrats to Mom, Dad and big sis!

This nail polish by OPI is called "Go on Green" and it can be found at OPI.com or Sephora.com or quite a few other online beauty stores. The Bowtie Tankini in Teal/MultiStripe can be found at Diviine Modestee. I'll spare you the picture of my green-painted old lady toes, but trust me...it is totes the perfect match. So go on, ladies....get YOUR green on!

Is your swimsuit (or even if you have a purple swimsuit from somewhere else!) here's a few summer shoes that will look fab no matter what your style is.
If your style is more practical, which is why you have a Divinita Sole swimsuit, you will LOVE these flipflops from Zappos.com:
If you go for comfort with a touch of style, which is why you have a Divinita Sole swimsuit in the first place, you just might like these shoes by BCBGeneration, also from Zappos:
If your style is all-out runway fashion, which is why you rock your Divinita Sole swimsuit, then try on these heels for size:
I'll admit that while I am a crazy shoe fool, while wearing a swimsuit I would probably go for the middle pair. I'm just a little too timid to wear a 4-inch heel at the pool. OK, quite a bit too timid. So which would you prefer? Are you brave and confident enough to wear the slides? Or just prefer to be completely comfortable? Post a comment and let me know!

Money doesn't grow on trees, but if you have a website or a blog, it may grow there! If you have a fashion blog or a modest fashion blog or a giveaway blog or any kind of blog/website that you would like to use to generate income, we would like to offer you an opportunity.
I had a fun chat with a lady in our Boutique the other day. She was coming in to purchase a swimsuit but told us a fun story about her recent cruise and her dress that she purchased at Diviine Modestee.
At the end of May, she had the opportunity to go on a Singles Cruise to several ports in Mexico. A couple of days before her cruise she came to our Boutique to select a dress to wear on her cruise. She purchased the Carmen dress in Red/Cream and proudly wore it to one of the dressier events on her cruise. She caught the eye of a handsome gentleman while wearing the Carmen and feeling confident and attractive. He sidled up to her and introduced himself to her and they've been dating ever since!

Here's Crissa in her very own words:
Diviine Modestee allowed me to design my very own suit fit just for my style. This was hard to make a decision because everything is adorable. After much debate and a few opinions from co-workers I went with the Purple Dots Ruffle Halter top and Purple Dots Banded Midrise bottoms. They fit perfectly and cover up everything I don’t want strangers seeing. Here is a close up of the top. Look how cute those ruffles are! This is a great top for big chested women. The halter provides great support. Also, I really appreciate how it isn’t low cut. I like to keep some things to myself, you know.
The bottoms are the highest cut to help lengthen the leg. Great for me because I have muscular dancer legs. In the back it is full coverage. Perfect for me because I love my ice cream but don’t need the world to know that.
The waist band is the highest height. This is perfect for tummy control and minimizing hips. But look! It can be folded down to provide comfort for those of us who struggle with things sitting up to high on our waist.
Not only do I love the styles and materials of Diviine Modestee swimming suits, I love that you can mix and match them! Buy a pair of plain bottoms and match it with several different tops and vice versa! This is a great way to keep your summer pool side wear different without having to own 15 different suits. I will be a loyal customer for sure! It is nice to not have spend hours searching for the perfect suit.
Thanks Crissa! Isn't she cute in her swimsuit??!! I love how she picked purple that goes so well with her blonde hair and skin tone. She's going to be one stylish and gorgeous gal at the swimming pool this summer!
If anyone else is brave and wants to send me a photo of you in ANY of our products, I'd be happy to showcase you on our blog. firstname.lastname@example.org

In working together getting the swimsuit giveaway up and running I had the opportunity to talk to Elaine and interview her. Channeling my inner Dianne Sawyer I really delivered some tough questions. Here is my interview with Elaine:
DM: Hi Elaine, and welcome. Who is your Fashion Icon?
Elaine: I actually don't have one fashion icon.. I try to receive inspiration from everywhere. I really look to fashion blogs, street style and chictopia.com for my fashion inspiration!
DM: What defines modesty to you?
Elaine: Modesty is not just a style choice but a lifestyle. I have learned to curb my desires and wants for what is really important - self-respect, dignity, and self-worth. Through my clothing choices and style, I want to portray to the world that I respect my body and want people to see me for who I am and not my hot body (ha!)
DM: Describe one of your favorite outfits.
Elaine: That's so hard!! Here's one... It's nothing special - I am just really proud of how I put the items together so they hold a special place in my closet.
DM: That outfit looks so comfy and yet just a little more dressed up than jeans. It's perfect! In reading your blog we get an insider's view of your closet but tell us a little about YOU.
Elaine: I was born in Seoul, Korea but immigrated to the states, specifically, Philadelphia, with my family when I was younger. I now live in Salt Lake City, UT with my dear husband of two years. I like to stare at my sewing machine and pretend to know how to use it. I like thrifting - I'm not very good at it but I like to think I am getting better!
DM: What are some of your favorite places to shop?
Elaine: Deseret Industries (a local thrift store), other thrift stores, Uptown Cheapskate, ebay... I've been looking at secondhand clothing a lot more. I like to think I'm "helping" the earth...and my wallet and husband appreciate it too ;)
DM: I'm also a big fan of eBay. What was one of your best shopping "scores"?
Elaine: This is going to be so boring and practical but definitely my secondhand Kenneth Cole Reaction coat. I've been looking for a new winter coat because my other one was too poofy and made me look like a marshmallow and so when I saw this at a consignment store for $60 I snagged it! I don't know the brand too well and I looked it up and their coats run for at least $300!!! So yeah...it was definitely a good score!!!
DM: That IS a gorgeous coat! Jealous! If you woke up late and only had 2 minutes to throw an outfit together, what would you put on?
Elaine: Hahaha that happens to me a lot often than you'd think...... I'd wear my J Brand jeans, Hanes men's v-neck, Geox flats (if it is warm outside) or my Tsubo boots, and my leopard print scarf! That is my default outfit...it has never failed me! ;)
DM: Thank you so much Elaine for stopping by. Since I already had a leopard print scarf, you inspired me to purchase a white v-neck Tee (on clearance!) and I now have a go-to outfit for those mornings when I don't want to think about what to wear to work!

Well....yeah. I have a big "FAIL" stamped on week 5 of my diet log-sheet. I
WARNING: Reading from this point on may trigger intense chocolate cravings!!!!
All through this diet so far I have had the mind-set that any delicious food that I can't have now, will be available later...and that has worked great until I was faced with my all-time fav treat that is only available around Easter each year. The Cadbury Mini-Egg.
I have joked in previous comments that I love Love LOVE Cadbury Mini Eggs. But it's no joke. Each year I look forward to Spring when the purple packages hit the store shelves. I actually remember clearly when my friend Tammy first introduced me to these yummy treats a good 20 years ago in Charlotte, North Carolina. Last week after running some errands for me, my son picked me up from work with a "Hey! Guess what's in the stores??"
"Only let me have six", I told him, thinking a small taste would be a nice treat and not affect my diet too much and... it wouldn't have, except that there is such a thing as not-enough-of-a-good-thing...Yea...I've been on a week-long Chocolate Splurge and enjoyed every second of it.
But all good things must come to an end. My Coach's idea last night was for me to hit the diet hard for the next 3-4 weeks until Easter, then reward myself on Easter with all the Easter trimmings including Mini-Eggs for that one day. Then back on-plan again the next day.
This, I can do. Onward and upward, right? Because out of all our new 2010 modest swimwear line I have finally picked out my favorite and I want it in a medium, not an x-large.
Is your favorite modest swimsuit the Banded Halter?
Or maybe the Bowtie Tankini?Or the Classic Square Halter?
Enter the giveaway by letting Fabulous Fun Finds know which of our new 2010 modest swimsuits are your favorites. Plural, because I know you'll find more than one to love.

In my web-surfing today I came across a fun fashion blog called Thrifty Muse. I love the combination of Fashion+Thrift because not all of us can afford Christian Louboutin or Max Azria although (some of us...me!) want to LOOK like we can. Lisa, who writes for Thrifty Muse likes to put together her layered outfits starting with Diviine Modestee Camisoles. One recent look she put together can be seen here: http://fashiongirlsgallery.blogspot.com/2010/02/triple-decker.html

Roasted Cauliflower (I did not know you could roast cauliflower!)
1 Head cauliflower
Preheat oven to 400. Cut cauliflower into flowerettes. Combine EVOO, salt, pepper and garlic together then sprinkle over cauliflower and arrange on a baking sheet. Bake about 10 minutes.
My kids swear these taste like french-fries. I don't think they do at all, but they are indeed yummy!
So...February 15...It is time to re-commit to the Shape-Up! Low carbing was very hard this past weekend. A neighbor brought over fresh-baked bread (curse her!), my son made ricekrispy treats...all sorts of powers conspired against me and I caved. But only for one day and only temporarily. Tomorrow it is Back On Plan. So far I have lost 15 lbs since starting the Swimsuit Shape-Up which I think is pretty good, I wore a skirt on Sunday that I haven't worn in a while. That made me happy. VERY happy. Ok...so it was a little snug. I still wore it! Go me!
When we decided to do our first EVER (yes...we're slow!) modest swimsuit giveaway my first pick to host it was Elaine at ClothedMuch. If you haven't seen her blog yet, you need to (just follow the link). She has the most amazing fashion sense and style, fun personality that shows through in her posts, great photography, and best of all every. single. one. of her outfits are modest.
Elaine graciously agreed to help us out, so...head on over to ClothedMuch and give her some blog love! Enter the modest swimsuit giveaway she is hosting for us. Also coming SOON: an interview with Elaine right here on this blog. Look for it this coming week.
I was invited to do a guest blog post over at Youthful Tips about fashion as we age. I didn't want this to be an "age-ist" post... as in: "You're 40 you can't wear this, that and this other fad!" because heck yes...you sure can. But walking the fine line between trying to look like a 15 year old and trying to look hip can sometimes be a struggle. Head on over to youthfultips.blogspot.com (just follow the link) and leave a comment. Thanks!

I just came across an article I had to share. The article is called Good Idea or Saddest Product Ever , you can find it over on Shine from Yahoo or follow my link. My thoughts in a nutshell? How about "Best Idea Ever!"? I think it's about time that men can now learn from first-hand experience the pain and suffering (I know!...dramatic wording there...) we women sometimes put ourselves through. Body Shapers of any kind are so VERY uncomfortable, and yet... to smooth over that muffin I'll admit to putting myself through that misery fairly often (hence the Summer Swimsuit Shape-up). And now? I can expect the same from my husband. Ha! My world's axis has righted.

This is one of the new designs called Ruffle Square Halter and this particular fabric is called Purple Circles. For those of you who've loved our Square Halter, you will love this one as well. Same great coverage (especially for a halter), same great full support but with added cute ruffles. She's also wearing the Boy Brief which has a little lower cut on the leg, but still more flattering than the boyshort length.
This picture I already posted on Facebook yesterday as a preview, but I am showing it again because it's my absolute favorite. This is the suit that I am doing my Summer Swimsuit Shapeup for. The Ruffle Banded Halter, is another new style shown above in purple and available in several other colors and it is adorable. I will think I have died and gone to heaven if I can look like the model in mine! This is (I think) one of the only v-neck halters on the market that comes high enough to not show any cleavage. The ruffle at the neckline adds even more subtle coverage so that it is a modest swimsuit, but yet stylish and definitely not frumpy.
Ok...a couple more:
The classic Square Halter in Teal Waves. This is a suit style that by popular demand we have done for several years in a row but in different colors. An adorable modest swimsuit with great cleavage coverage and support.
Now for some fun prints...this one is the Purple Zigzag print. I really like this print: from far away it looks like zigzags as you can see, but up close it has a whole different pattern, almost like snakeskin only so much more beautiful. This is the Banded Halter with the Ruffle Swim Skirt.
I really like this pattern called Teal Starburst. These "starbursts" are the coolest design, not stars, not quite flowers, but not quite simply retro circles either. Just trust me...it's the BEST. I got to give this Square Halter and Banded Midrise a trial run last November in Hawaii and I got a lot of compliments on it at the pool. Funny thing was that amid all the ladies also in their swim attire, I was covered the most and yet (in my opinion) had the cutest suit there!
This is another pattern called Bubbles shown with the Banded Halter and Ruffle Skirt again. It's a fun, colorful, playful print that we've done on several styles including the Banded Halter and the Ruched Tankini with Sash. All are adorable done in this print!
These are only a handful of the new suits and colors that we have ready to go. So if you have a cruise planned, a winter trip to a warmer place or just think ahead to summer better than the average person, you need to either come by our store or head to Diviine Modestee's website.

I've been searching for the perfect pair of shoes to go with my Moonlight Blue Brecken dress from the new Diviine Modestee dress line and I found these killer shoes by Miss Sixty. I LOVE them! After hours of shoe-shopping online I found them at Piperlime, which is one of my favorite online shoe stores. I'm really excited about these pair of shoes because not only are they are sale (woot!) but they will also match both the Moonlight Blue dress and the Stone one as well should I decide to get that one too. Which I'll probably do since I adore that dress. ----------------------> See, great dress!
Hopefully these shoes are as comfortable as they are hot!
