Diviine Modestee Sweet Innocence Dresses {Review & Giveaway}

Diviine Modestee logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Maija M!}

Typically when it comes to picking out new clothes for fall, winter and especially the holidays, all of us moms immediately think of our children. Do our daughters have dresses that haven't been outgrown? Do our sons have khakis that are long enough in length but not too loose in the waist?

This year, however, it's time to add another name to the shopping list for fashionable pieces. With all of the events, occasions and get-togethers that will occur in the upcoming months, it's time to look in our own closets as well.

Because hopefully we'll find something in there that will have us looking classic, well put-together and highly stylish thanks to Diviine Modestee.

Combining modern fashions with the comfortable fit that will ensure that you love wearing them, Diviine Modestee has three collections that will cover different aspects of your life. From everyday tees and camisoles to flattering and modest swimwear to gorgeous upscale dresses, their simple yet extremely stylish clothing is versatile enough to fit easily into your life.

It didn't take more than a glance or two at the Sweet Innocence Dresses before I was convinced that Diviine Modestee had hit upon the right combination of quality and design for women and teens. As I often browse dresses and think that they're cut too short or too revealing for my tastes (and body), I loved that this line instead makes it easy to get fashionably dressed in an item that is well-made, comfortable and beautiful all on its own.

When the Serena dress arrived, I knew that the deep ocean blue color and unique applique neckline would be perfect for any upcoming occasions this season as well as beyond.

From the picture on the Diviine Modestee website, I had already liked the cool, soothing color and the way the empire waistline of the Serena dress gave it a tailored, attractive look.

The description mentioned that the A-line skirt is slimming and that "this dress will flatter any body shape," two things that definitely caught my eye. What woman doesn't want a dress that helps them look as good as possible?

In fact, it's gorgeous! I took note that Diviine Modestee recommended to order one size smaller for a perfect fit and chose a Small instead of a Medium, and was glad that I did. The single zipper in the back closed perfectly and the lightweight Nylon/Rayon/Spandex fabric felt smooth and soft with just the right amount of stretch.

I love the details that are included in this dress, as the lined bodice and scoop neckline are the perfect simple accompaniments to the intricate flower applique.

The top is form-fitting without being too tight and the thick band at the waist brings your eye to the smallest part of the body, giving the illusion that someone like me has a tiny middle.

The darts on the skirt and the longer, over-the-knee length flow easily and give the Serena dress the ability to drape and flatter on the body, while not clinging to any areas that I would rather keep hidden.

Basically it all works together to make a dress that can be dressed up or down as well as worn for day or evening. With flats it is more casual, with heels and some jewelry, it is more dressy. But either way it is a beautiful dress!

Each time that I've worn this dress around, I've been impressed with how I'm able to look put together while feeling extremely at ease. At the same time, it manages to work for such a variety of occasions and whether I wear the Serena alone or with a light sweater (darn winter weather), it just seems to work.

I love the idea of being able to wear this dress throughout the holidays and know that I'll feel comfortable while looking chic. Whether for a special occasion or everyday life, it's the perfect combination of stylishness, high quality and great fit that every woman looks for!

With a variety of different styles and colors of dresses available, Diviine Modestee is sure to have multiple pieces that you'll love... although it is difficult to not get distracted while browsing their website while finding ways to complete your look with their high quality camisoles or get ready to hop in the pool with their fashionable swimwear.

Although prices at Diviine Modestee are on the higher end (the Serena dress retails for $96), the quality and amount of time that you'll be able to wear their clothing makes their upscale line fitting for a department stores or boutique shop. However, if you're looking for a deal, there are also some really nice sale and clearance items that will have you looking great for less.

Even better, how about a discount? Right now Diviine Modestee has two dress specials running until December 15, 2011, in which shoppers can choose the ONE that works best for them: $30 off of a purchase of $100 or more with the coupon code SAVE30 OR free shipping on orders over $75 using the code FREESHIPPING2011.

For stylish clothing you'll feel comfortable wearing, Diviine Modestee and their Sweet Innocence Dresses are sure to turn heads this holiday season with an outfit (probably quite a few, actually) that you'll love. And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to select that favorite piece for themselves, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of dress from Diviine Modestee!
